Bonjour Mes Amies.
Monday is here again.
Some of us know about the flood that prevented some of us from going to places like Victoria Island, Lekki and Ajah areas on Saturday. I couldn’t attend Techplus too.
Sunday service was great and I learned something quite interesting I want to share with you all today.
I saw this guy with this sweat shirt and the inscription on the shirt was what caught my attention. Check this out:
Really? He pulled my hand and made me sit.
Five ways to make money.
- You must know God.
- You must be creative and innovative.
- You have to work hard and smart.
- You have to follow your own path.
I just sat with arms folded while I let that digest. Later that afternoon, I shared with my friends what I read on Saturday night from the scriptures. Follow me to Psalm chapter 1. The first and second verse of this scripture affirms his first point. You must know God.
……“But his delight is in the law of the Lord and he meditates on it, day and night”
Knowing God requires you to study the word, meditate on it, day and night. This will help you understand the will of God and he will reveal mysteries to you when you spend time talking to him and reading his word. This is a key to success. The third verse says, You will be like a tree planted beside a stream of water that produces fruits in its season. So, instead of trial and error methods, you will be under DIVINE GUIDANCE that will make you a DIVINE SUCCESS. However, I have to note that it is someone who loves God will be interested in studying is word.
Be creative and Innovative
Nothing is new under the sun. For everything you do, there are one million other persons who do the same thing. What stands you out? Simple, how different your work is. Your brand will be marked out if it is unique. Uniqueness is a product of creativity. So, be innovative in your thinking and be creative.
Work hard and work smart
Proverbs 10:4 –“He becomes poor who works with a slack and idle hand, but the hand of the diligent makes rich”.
Hard work pays a good dividend. You seen the book, Talent is not enough? Yes, it is enough to be good at what you do, you have to work hard at it too. Take time to improve and always give your best. Here is a secret: Apply the google rule, always give your best, it will always come back to you.
Follow your own path
Simply put, do not do things because others are doing it this way too. Always learn to do what will in the long run give you peace. If you copy someone else, you will get it done but how long will you put up with being a reflection of someone else? Think about that!
Yes, you need people. Partnerships, friendships, associations, coporatives, name them. I will talk a lot more about this some time later.
Okay guys, stay motivated.
I am your friend,
