In today’s blog post, entitled, “How To Be In-charge Of Your Future As An Entrepreneur” I shall be bringing to your knowledge the two major factors you need to triumph and enjoy competitive advantage in any venture you undertake.
Firstly, the story of this elderly man and his wife will interest you!
An elderly man who was lying in a hospital bed, clinging to life and approaching his final moments, during one of those rare occasions when he was conscious and alert, noticed his wife of fifty seven (57) years sitting in the chair beside his bed, he mustered enough strength to whisper to her.
“Honey”, he said, “Can you come closer?”
His wife got up from her seat and leaned over his face, placing her ear close to his mouth so she could hear what might be his final words.
“You know,” he said, “You were there with me when the house burned down.”
“I know, Sweetheart,” she said. “I know”
“And you were there with me when I lost it all and we had to start over”
“I remember, Darling,” She replied.
Then, he motioned to her to come a little closer. As she leaned even closer into his body so she could discern his words, he said, “You know, Baby Doll, you’re bad luck.”
It is not that the woman is bad luck. The truth is that the man did not prepare for the future.
Now, hear this: “The future you do not prepare for will get you confused when you get there”
You can never become prosperous as long as you continue to blame someone else or something else for your plight in life. You are the one who ate junk food and became fat. You are the one who did not say “No” when you should have. You are the one who took that job you do not like. Even when you realized that it was the wrong place to be, you are the one who still kept the job. You refused to follow your instinct. You are the one who created the thoughts that led to your actions. You are the one who formed the feelings that led to your thoughts. That is why you are where you are.
However, if you want to change where you are, you have to stop blaming people and circumstances for your life. You have to take a long, hard look at yourself.
There is only one person responsible for the outcome of your life and the quality of your life; and that person is YOU.
To be successful in life, you have to take responsibility for your actions and inactions.
God is not our problems. He has given us everything that pertains to life and godliness. Satan is not the problem; for there is no power anywhere but of God. You are your problem.
It is either you do not know what to do or you are too lazy to do what you know. The former is the problem of IGNORANCE. And the latter is the problem of LAZINESS (Hosea 4:6, Psalms 82:5, Isaiah 5:13)
Take responsibility over every facet of your life: your achievements, your productivity, your results, your relationships, your health, your income, your debt, your feelings, everything!
You created the present by your past decisions. Likewise, you can also create the future by making insightful decisions today, henceforth.
Your condition today is a direct function of your decisions yesterday.
Go for knowledge!
Adequate insight will always culminate into a productive lifestyle when adequate action is added. It takes wisdom to win the battles of life. It takes insight to make impact. The depth of your understanding in any field determines the height of your accomplishment in that field.
That you are a Pastor, Bishop, Evangelist, Teacher, Prophet or whatever title you carry is not enough guarantees for your manifestation in any field in life. You need specific knowledge in any field you want to go into.
Entrepreneurship calls for adequate knowledge. And that is why I was sent to you to add value to what you already know.
