Where To Look For Business & Career Success

Where To Look For Business & Career Success

Counsel in the heart of man is like deep water, but a man of understanding will draw it out. – Proverbs 20:5 When seeking the roadmap to sustainable success and significance in your career or business, you should essentially look in three directions for resources that will help you accomplish your objectives: LOOK UP: You should look up to God for the instructions and blueprint of what you are meant to do. Then the direction detailing how you are to go about it, when, where, how, with whom. You should also look for His favour in your endeavours, so that you don’t run in vain. LOOK INWARD: the second place you look is inside yourself. You should do a written inventory of your strengths, your skills, your flairs, your talents and the gifts of God in you which have commercial value or potential you can trade in the marketplace. Finally, you should LOOK OUT: for opportunities in the marketplace where the application of your endowments will prove both useful and profitable; look out for the appropriate environment or context where your skills can flourish or be best utilised. You should also look out for books and resources that can help you to grow or master your trade, as well as people who can be useful to you as mentors, coaches,

How to be Free, Manifest and Succeed! (2)

How to be Free, Manifest and Succeed! (2)

And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free. – John 8:32 However, freedom, manifestation and success do not happen without some degrees of internal and external struggles. These restrictions usually come in form of limitations imposed by the self, others or the environment; and it is to the extent that you overcome them that you will be free, become and succeed. Here is a continuation of the three keys that will help you to be free, manifest or succeed: 2.   Reach out: as you go out of your comfort zone to pursue your dreams and ideals, you also need to reach out to people and resources that will help you to achieve your objectives along the way. Fortune, most times, does not favour the taciturn. You need to identify the persons or association that can enhance you as a person as well as enable you to accomplish your aim, and then reach out to them. This is not limited to humans alone; as you are “going out” you will also encounter books, events and other resources that will be helpful to you. Reach out to them, subscribe to them, engage them and assimilate them. 3.   Launch out: to the extent that you have gone out and reached out, you also need to launch out with the idea and initiative you

How to be Free, Manifest and Succeed (1)

Here is a Daily Dew insight on some principles that make for Freedom, manifestation, and success But now after you have known God, or rather are known by God, how is it that you turn again to the weak and beggarly elements, to which you desire again to be in bondage? – Galatians 4:9 Humans, when caged by self, dogma or fellow humans cannot be free, neither can they manifest their full potential nor succeed in their endeavours. The very thought of freedom, manifestation, and success suggests an image of an outward flow of activities rather than an inward blossom. However, freedom, manifestation and success do not happen without some degrees of internal and external struggles. These restrictions usually come in form of limitations imposed by the self, others or the environment; and it is to the extent that you overcome them that you will be free, become and succeed. Therefore, to be free, to manifest or to succeed, here are three keys you may find very helpful: Go out: you cannot reach your full potential unless you go out of your comfort zone. Have you seen a tortoise moving before? No matter how big or small it is, it cannot move anywhere until it juts its head out of the shell. Humans are no different; there is no progress unless

How To Sustain Success

How To Sustain Success

A gracious woman retains honor, But ruthless men retain riches. – Proverbs 11:16 Success means different things to different people; the same way the mode of approaching it is different from one individual to another, not minding the myriads of literature in the public domain on how to achieve it. There are two angles to success; the first is exploring how to accomplish it and, the second, how to sustain it. Achieving success in life might seem a very arduous feat that places a lot of demand on one. That is rightly so, as not everyone can lay claim to being successful. However, sustaining success at whatever level is more demanding than the process of achieving it. The passage above gives us an insight on how to sustain success so it doesn’t slip out of grasp or dim out with greater speed than it came. It takes discipline to retain success, that is what the writer of the proverb describes as “ruthless” in the passage above. A measure of ruthlessness is needed to sustain or scale up any kind of success. You have to be ruthless on yourself in terms of how you use time, manage resources, what you tell yourself, as well as how you interact with yourself and others. Discipline must be your watchword if you want to

How Do You Respond to Discouragement?

How Do You Respond to Discouragement?

This is a story that teaches us some lessons about how to deal with discouragement at moments in our lives. A man got dressed in the evening and set out on his way to God’s house. On his way to Church, the man fell and his clothes got dirty. He got up, brushed himself up and headed home. At home, he changed his clothes and was again on his way to Church. Again, he fell at the same spot! He, again, got up, brushed off the dirt and headed home. At home, he once again changed his clothes and walked out heading to God’s house. On his way, he met a man holding a lamp. He asked to know his identity and the man replied, “I saw you fall twice on your way, so I brought a lamp so I can light your way.” The first man thanked him profusely and the two went on their way to the Church. Once at the Church, the first man asked the man with the lamp to come in, but he refused. He asked him a couple more times and, again, the answer was negative. The first man then asked him why he did not wish to come in and pray. The man replied, “I am Satan.” The man was shocked at this

Psalm 1 As A Business Principle (5)

Psalm 1 As A Business Principle (5)

Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor stands in the path of sinners, nor sits in the seat of the scornful; But his delight is in the law of the Lord, and in His law he meditates day and night. He shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that brings forth its fruit in its season, whose leaf also shall not wither; and whatever he does shall prosper. – Psalm 1:1-3 The Psalm 1 businessperson does not just delight in exposing himself/herself to the word and counsel of God, he/she also makes it a duty to meditate on the word of God and the counsel He has given. He/she hits every working day by ruminating on what the LORD has said in the Holy Bible, thus availing himself/herself a map with which to navigate the affairs of life and business for each day, as well as having an appraisal system through which he/she measures the success and other concerns of each day in the night. In other words, the Psalm 1 businessperson is devoted to the word of God and is fanatic about His counsel. That is the reason he/she meditates on God’s word day and night. The word thus becoming the light with which he/she sees and the
