Today we will meditate on sources of business and 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, strategic partners, service providers, amongst others.
These three steps are by no means exhaustive in accomplishing your business or career objectives. But they sure can start you on the right path if you adhere to them rightly and diligently.
You will succeed in Jesus Name!
