GOD Usually Starts at the Bottom, Not the Top

One of the greatest lessons I have learned from the extraordinary achievements of many people who found their life calling is that GOD usually starts working at the bottom, instead of the top in people’s lives. In case you were born at a bottom or very low position in life, don’t be discouraged! You are destined to be happy and great if your lifestyle is in harmony with GOD’s will and you obey His laws as He expects…it doesn’t matter whether you’re really at the bottom because that’s exactly where GOD usually starts from, instead of the top where most people think that GOD should start from.

We Progress by Being Dissatisfied with Our Current Level of Progress

Wouldn’t you like to make more progress? If yes, then you have to always be dissatisfied with your current level of progress in life, no matter how high or low it is. To make the utmost use of dissatisfaction over your current level of progress, never be satisfied with your current achievements, and always assume or that your current level of progress can rise higher than it is…We prepare a recipe for disaster by putting things off until tomorrow when they can be easily done today. By making a habit of pushing things into the future, we fail, and may even fail many times over! Hence, we need to discipline ourselves and be more demanding of ourselves in order to be dissatisfied enough to get things done on time. (Featured Image Credit: Pixabay.com.)

History and faith both inform us that GOD works wonders and uses risks, challenges, and problems to achieve great results. Therefore, even if you are facing a situation that compels you to take a “safe” route, remember that it is only GOD Who can give a 100% guarantee that a safe route is not risky; He is the only one Who can guarantee that a safe route is actually safe and will lead to the desired destination. Be ready to take risks when certain opportunities come, and never ever forget that your faith or trust in GOD is a step that will enable you to conquer the unknown. Trusting in GOD can turn an unfavorable today into an advantageous tomorrow, and turn an awful today into a happy tomorrow. (Featured Image Credit: Pixabay.com.)

Your Life is Worth More than the Money & Things You Own

Although it’s obvious that we can justify why we need money and many of the things we clamour for in life, our lives are worth more than money. The truth is that your life is worth more than the things you own; money and material possessions are just items that make life easier. Money is just an instrument that we have to use to meet our material needs and accomplish GOD’s purposes on Earth; therefore, GOD designed us to be masters of money. We shouldn’t allow ourselves to be controlled by money and material things to the point that we lose our true freedom that lies in following the laws of the Kingdom of GOD which depend on the values of GOD we will have to live by in eternity, after our earthly lives are over.

The Best Way to Brand Yourself is to Be Yourself

Brand yourself by helping people; in due time, any help you give will be reciprocated. Each person’s reputation or brand originates from the attributes, skills or talents they exhibit or radiate over a considerable period of time. A brand is who you are and the parts of yourself or your identity that people remember—the part of yourself that has been revealed to your audience. Have the best interest of people at the back of your mind, and practice giving. Always remember: “give and it shall be given unto you…and running over shall men give into your bosom”. As you continue to give something valuable, you will continue to build trust; with trust comes more opportunities to share your product and brand yourself. (Featured Image Credit: Pixabay.com.)

Valuable Lessons from the Slow Events & Things of Nature

When it comes to enduring the slow processes required of us, we generally have two choices: we can be impatient and bypass time in order to get immediate gratification, or we can be patient and embrace the time required (days, months, or even years) for slow but necessary growth which leads to success and lasting results. The reality of the matter is that most of the slow things of nature—including many slow worldly activities—create great results and lasting achievements in the world. At times, the processes involved in growth and success feel more like inconveniences than opportunities; but if you are patient and stay in the slowness of the processes, you will wake up one day and be amazed at how far you’ve come.

In fact, we spend most of our days or lives waiting—each person spends most of their life waiting. In the seeming stillness of waiting times, we can learn to live in the present or moment and acknowledge the lessons that life is trying to teach us; this can make us greater or wiser if we regard waiting time as an adventure, regardless of what happens—whether things turn out or don’t turn out the way we expect.
