One of the helpful lessons I learned in 2020 is that everything is achievable when you put in a huge amount of hard work and discipline. Although anything can be attainable, there are some things you shouldn’t bother wearing yourself off when someone can do it for you.
In as much as living and working for a comfortable life is awesome, if you’re the only one that carters for everything you need, then the tendency of reaching your life span endpoint is zero. In the run long, you may get fed up and end up everything in the hands of frustration and desperation.
Why every CEO enjoys most of their time is because they have sat down to understand that working with people can help in building their dreams and visions within a limited time. They share their burden amongst their employees who devotedly work tirelessly to see that their managers are satisfied. This in turn has a reward; salary. Now, a vision that could take 10 years to accomplish can be actualized in two years, because people came in touch to push the vision.
If you want to reach your goal, vision, or dream easily within a short period, then you need Favour. Favor means to do kindness for someone you love, like, or cherished.
It has nothing to do with whether they can afford such an offer or not. This is based on the special regard you have for the person.
Have you seen someone at the supermarket making a huge purchase? Afterward, he bumped into someone who knew him from somewhere and after exchanging pleasantries, the person decides to clear the bill?
In your pursuit of purpose, dream/ vision, you need help. How can you come to the plain where virtually everyone would like you and can risk their resources just to see you happy?
Here are what you have to do:
¶Grow while you glow: Growth is the PROCESS of becoming mature. Unfortunately, age is one thing that goes up continuously without going down. To meet up with time, you need to leverage personal development while you grow. Some areas must experience this growth. They are your mentality, sociality, & spirituality.
When you’re truly growing, you would glow outwardly. That’s why you don’t need to wear a flashy or expensive dress. Your inside first before the exterior.
“And Jesus grew in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and man.”
¶Befriend God: Many people are religious thinking they are on good terms with God by their practices but then, God doesn’t necessarily need all these rigorous activities they have engrossed themselves with. He simply desires an unbinding fellowship. How can you achieve this? Incorporate those things you could do for your loved ones. Lavish it on God daily. That’s how to fellowship; time in prayers and study of the word, worship, and praise. Be consistent.
¶Integrity & selfless love: This may sound absurd in our corrupt world but that’s an unavoidable step. When you care to solve people’s problems over than yours, then they would like you automatically. Everyone in this universe is struggling with their problem and this has glued their attention. For them to take cognizant of you, you must prove to solve the problem or help them get through it.
“Let not mercy and kindness [shutting out all hatred and selfishness] and truth [shutting out all deliberate hypocrisy or falsehood] forsake you; bind them about your neck, write them upon the tablet of your heart. So shall you find FAVOUR, good understanding, and high esteem in the sight of God and man.” cf Prov 3:3-4.
¶Believe you deserve it: Your mind works based on how it’s programmed. Whatsoever you believe is your self-fulfilling prophecy.
Shun all manner of distraction: While you imbibe with all these principles, days are coming when you would doubt your sanity. It may seem as if you’re foolish. That’s it; distraction.
Leverage the available possibilities instead of struggling yourself out of capacity.
