There is always a process before a product can be made. But our young ones only want a product with no attention to the details that brought the product. The ancient city of Rome was not built in a day. The farmer who plants the Chinese bamboo must wait for five years with no sign he planted anything. But yet this bamboo grows 90 feet tall in six weeks but not until after five years of watering by the patient farmer.
That’s the way to greatness. Therefore, anyone wanting to become a real entrepreneur must wait. This waiting is not to fold hand doing nothing.
THESE ARE THE FIVE THINGS YOU MUST WAIT FOR.
1: WAIT TO BE COACHED:
Go and sit under someone who is already at where you are going such a person may not have all the degree and titles you carry.
Let that person teach you how it works. It doesn’t matter how much money you have, if you disrespect the law of Apprenticeship, you will lose all your billions or millions.
Even if you are the first lady of the nation or state, the business trade secret will not reveal itself to you until you come down from your high horse and sit down under someone who had cracked the dynamics and the invincibility of such business.
Business is beastly in nature. It fight strangers who wants to bypass mentorship and apprenticeship.
2: WAIT FOR DUE SEASON.
Day by day speaks. Season by season gives sound. To everything, there is a season and a time for every purpose under the sun. Sadly, non-Christians know this reality more than Christians. The dry season has its blessings. The rainy season has its own too.
This also reflects in the realms of business. 2020 is a the first fruit of the Third decade in this millennium. Many inventions will happen. Over 300 analog businesses will give way to the digital version no matter how much the business owners pray. Seasons change and the way things are done must change. No old wineskin can accommodate new wine. It will tear up.
Therefore, study your business and understand it’s season and get yourself ready to be relevant in your due season. Remember, you can only control your Preparations, you can’t control your Opportunity. Live Ready!!!
3: WAIT TO GIVE ATTENTION TO DETAILS:
You must also be thorough and thoughtful. Remember, EXCELLENCE IS NOW THE MINIMUM REQUIREMENT IN THE SCHOOL OF SUCCESS. Do your homework. Start well and finish it beautifully. No matter how long it takes you, don’t leave the workshop until you finish. Good products are expensive and people buy because they know the value.
Value speaks a universal language. Excellence is the same worldwide. Rolls-Royce is Rolls-Royce. Microsoft is Microsoft. If you like, write it in Arabic, Apple is Apple.
Even if your workshop is in the village, make sure your products or services are universal in relevance and utility.
4: START WITH WHAT YOU HAVE WHILE YOU WAIT FOR YOUR ANGEL INVESTOR:
I love one thing about angel investors, they don’t go to palace, they always come to mangers. They are wise men who have seen the star of your business. They are watching you as you struggle. They kept their eyes on you from your humble beginning.
They watch you grow and then come on board to give you a leverage. Don’t look for them. Just bend down and work. Don’t sleep when sleep comes. Sleep only when you are done for the day. You will have more than enough time to sleep in the coffin.
Give your business EVERYTHING and you will see the business giving you EVERYTHING which will cause a vibration that will attract helpers of destiny. They are invisible now. Keep working..they will soon show up.
5: WAIT FOR GOD.
This is the biggest waiting. It’s not by power. It’s not by might. It’s by the Spirit. Don’t kill yourself. Do your best and leave the rest for God. Stop chasing men. Go and knee before God after you have done your very best.
Please note: God does not listen to the prayers of lazy men. Any faith that leaves God to be absolutely responsible without any effort from you is a useless faith. Work as if prayer does not exist. And pray as if hard and smart work does not exist and you will see yourself flying with champions.
