#1: YOU NEED ADEQUATE KNOWLEDGE
Praying, fasting, and studying the Bible alone might not guarantee supernatural success in business. You need to study other books written by great minds (Authors) on Business Management and other related subjects to be able to make great profits and sustain your business.
The Bible is likened to ‘crude oil”. It needs refining and adequate processing to make meaning suitable for application.
“God gives knowledge, wisdom and understanding, why then do we still attend formal education (schools)? He gives money, why do we work hard to earn money? He gives health, why do we study Medical and Surgery?”
Stop limiting your destiny! Buy books on Business Management and read! There must be something you will discover that will help you enhance the management of your business.
If you fail to study, you will fail in business. Show me a business person who does not study, and I will show you a business that has remained in one position for more than five years.
When you stop learning, you start dying. If you are still in doubt, ask Bishop Paul (the former Saul), when you see him, what made him become more popular and more impactful than Bishop Peter (the first Bishop)? Books made him. And books differentiate average businesses from great businesses. Think about this!
#2: YOU NEED STRATEGY
The trade secret of progress in business and life generally is strategy. When you don’t have strategies, you suffer tragedies. Working in life takes strategies (Abioye; 2009:5)
Strategy means devising a program or order of steps and actions that will guarantee your arrival at your expected destination.
Some people are so scared of change that they do not even listen to the voices of trends and sound reason, but a courageous man listens to anything that will bring progress and increase (Abioye; 2009:8)
#3: YOU NEED TO ADOPT THE SPIRIT OF TRADING
Happy is the man that findeth wisdom, and the man that getteth understanding.
For the merchandise of it is better than the merchandise of silver and the gain thereof than fine gold.
She is more precious than rubies: and all the things thou canst desire are not to be compared unto her.
Length of days is in her right hand; and in her left hand riches and honour.
Her ways are ways of pleasantness, and all her paths are peace.
She is a tree of life to them that lay hold upon her: and happy is every one that retaineth her. (Prov. 3: 13- 18)
Bishop David Abioye revealed that increase does not come by prayer but through trading. That is the secret of multiplication (Matt. 25:14;16). So, instead of praying for increase, develop your abilities. The higher your capacity, the more resources God will commit into your hands. That is the kingdom principle (Abioye; 2009:41)
He went further to document that the only way to convince God that you are ready for more is to exercise yourself by trading with what you have. Change your prayer from asking for increase to asking for wisdom. There are millions inside every penny in your hand; it takes trading to release it. Stop despising that little amount, if you trade with it you will be surprised how much it will yield for you…No matter your field of endeavor, you are in, a business and the principle of trading applies there also. So, learn to use what you have to get what you are looking for by adopting the spirit of trading (Abioye; 2009:41-42)
Therefore, not minding what you have learnt and the gift you possess, if you fail to trade it, you are bound to die struggling or perpetually slaving it out for another man or an organization out there in the name of ‘JOB-Just Over Broke’. No one makes it outside trading. Trading your gift is divine project and nothing more.
Unfortunately today, many are deceived into believing that until you labour for someone or a seeming organized business, you have no work. This accounted for the reason why many mocked me at the inception of my writing ministry. They saw me as a struggler. They cajoled me. I was not perturbed. I persisted in writing, publishing, teaching, mentoring and public speaking, amidst blogging at www.ALANAIJA.com . Today, to the glory of God Almighty, I ask, “Where are my mockers?”
Give your gift a commercial value and you will make the money you think you need. Until you trade your gift, you are bound to trash it!
Get wise, trade your talents and gifts.
What many do not understand is that it is in the pursuit of your gifting that longevity, prosperity and productivity are guaranteed.
But, if you must trade your knowledge, you need vision!
