I always tell people that money can buy bed but not sleep. It can buy a house but not a home. It can buy a car but not safety. Therefore I do not advise anyone to just look into 2021 with all the negative information around and plunge into the rat race of money making at all cost.
Today, I want to look into 3 powerful keys to make the best out of 2021 without spoiling your name, your health and relationships.
1: BE TRUSTED.
“Trust is the glue of life. It’s the most essential ingredient in effective communication. It’s the foundational principle that holds all relationships.” – STEPHEN R. COVEY.
Please note; For every good reason there is to lie, there is a better reason to tell the truth because nomatter how smooth your tongue when you lie, even if you patch a lie to lie again again, TRUTH will catch up with you the very moment it comes out.
“A man who trusts nobody is apt to be the kind of man nobody trusts.” – HAROLD MACMILLAN
We must know that the very first job of a leader is to inspire trust. Trust is the single most essential element to our ability to deliver extraordinary results in an enduring way.
Trust leads to high performance because it enables an organization to work as it should; it’s the first defense against dysfunction and the first step towards delivering better outcomes.
As we work to continuously improve our leadership, we are inspired by the thought leadership of others who also revere building trust as a critical mission.
If you want to:
Master your craft.
Lead by example.
Connect with your purpose.
Have a clear cut vision.
Lead your team with integrity.
Improve your listening skills.
Just be TRUSTED in this new year. Under promise and over deliver. Pay your loans. Make sure your customers have value for their money. Excellent after sales services. These and many more makes you to be TRUSTED.
We were taught in school how to read and write but not how to listen. Many people hear things but only few listens. Listening means paying attention to details. It means hearing with your eyes and seeing with your heart.
To listen is to take calculated risk. It’s to be ready to cope with what you can not change, to have wisdom to change what you can change and the discernment to know the difference of the two.
Listen to the quietness within your soul. Listen to the latest news how it affects your business. To listen is to know how to navigate meticulously in the space of a volatile and unpredictable market space at such a time as this.
“God speaks in the silence of the heart. Listening is the beginning of prayer.” Mother Teresa
3: PRAY UNTIL SOMETHING HAPPENS (P.U.S.H)
Prayer is the world’s greatest wireless connection. You may under pray but you can not over pray. Please note that prayer does not change God. It only changes you who’s praying.
“Our prayers may be awkward. Our attempts may be feeble. But since the power of prayer is in the one who hears it and not in the one who says it, our prayers do make a difference.” – Max Lucado.
Some issues of life demands more than a microwave approach. Sometimes we need to remain on our knees long enough until we wear the devil out. Not because God can not answer at once but because God wants to cook you. As far as God in concern in the school of true success, Preparation is more important than manifestation.
“True prayer is neither a mere mental exercise nor a vocal performance. It is far deeper than that – it is spiritual transaction with the Creator of Heaven and Earth.” – Charles Spurgeon
A lot of us are in prayer and fasting now as the year kicks off. You can pray without fasting but never fast without praying. Pray to hear God. Pray to know what next. Pray to cancel devil’s plan. Pray for clarity. Pray for clarifications. Pray for divine interventions. Pray for God’s mercy.
The last time I checked I saw that God singled you out this year for unprecedented blessings. You made it so big that your income this year surpasses the ones you made in the last 10 years put together. I saw that those looked down on you up till last year now look up to you.
ITS YOUR TURN TO SHINE!!!
