SHM WEEKLY WISDOM TITBITS. WEEK 14. NOT MONEY, PLEASE.

SHM_LEXCONSULTS_Thinking, 1
God has never and will never think in monetary terms. Show me one thing He created with money and I’d shut up. None?
So, I encourage you to stop praying amiss for money. I make bold to say that no amount of night vigils or fasting will put money in your pocket or food on your table. Anybody who teaches you otherwise does not himself understand the way God prospers. Why? Because it is contrary to the principles of our principled God.
Pray instead for ideas. The chair you sit on came from someone’s idea. In fact every raw material God created in this world have made people and nations money because they generated ideas to mine and market them! It is not enough for you, for example to catch game. You must add value to it by knowing how to roast it!
Not knowing how to add value to natural resources remain one major problem for developing economies despite in some cases vast mineral resources. Some have oil, but cannot refine it. Some have coffee, cocoa but cannot turn them into chocolate products. So, they can only export them as raw materials to developed economies who add value to these raw materials and sell it back at exorbitant values.
I repeat, pray not for money; instead pray for unique ideas. Like God gave Jacob in Laban’s house; like He endowed Joseph with in Egypt; such as He gave without measure to the Lord Jesus Christ who went about doing good relieving those oppressed of the devil.
Think ideas, pray for solution to problems that will make a difference in your environment. And then, sit back and watch your finances explode. Been there, done that; so this is no theoretical teaching.
That’s how you prosper, that’s how you conquer poverty. It’s your time to shine and I see the season changing for you.
You shall excel In Jesus’ mighty name. We love you!

2018 SHM WISDOM TITBITS. Week 4. WHERE DO YOU LIVE – THE PAST OR PRESENT?

SHM_LEXCONSULTS_future past present sign illustration

 

 

My dear reader, how has your year been so far? Mine has been great, praise God! This week, laid on my heart to share with you is that success and failure are dangerous in equal dimensions! That sounds strange, doesn’t it? If all we work towards is succeeding, how can we then interpose a danger in it? If all we aim to change is failure to success, why then glorify failure, right? Come along with me, and see for yourselves.

Success becomes a foundation to much more success ONLY for those who use whatever success they achieve as a stepping stone or leverage to other successes. Get your first, say, real estate, and leverage it to get more – that grows your portfolio, doesn’t it? But not many are able to turn success into a leverage for more. These are those who are easily satisfied with whatever it is they achieve. They build a monument to the achievement, and religiously relive it, year in year out!

They become so successful about the past that they fail to prepare for the future in the present. Many whose earlier successes turned to failure fall squarely in this same category.

Now for failure, the same principle applies. A lot wallow in the pain and regret of deals gone bad, or relationships gone burst! Some even wear it as a badge of honor! Come on, already! Your present life must not be held hostage by the past, so that your future can be better!

Every one of us is better served leaving things of the past just there – in the past; and pressing toward better marks! Forget the myriad reasons why you failed, learn lessons from the failure and MOVE ON, never looking back to mop or grumble. Same for successes, MOVE ON! Leave history the job of recalling and regaling others of your past successes. This is the secret of many omnipreneurs of today. {An omnipreneur takes an entrepreneurial approach to every aspect of life–work, family, community, health, finances, spirituality, and more.}

You shall excel In Jesus’ mighty name. We love you!

2018 SHM WISDOM TITBITS. WEEK 2 – HOW FAR CAN YOU SEE?

SHM_Imagination, 2
Every new year, goals are set, strategies are agreed, and many look to the year with optimism. My dear friend, I need you to know that there is a deep spiritual element to what is eventually achieved. Some cultures have perfected the art I am about to encourage you with, and have taken that deep spiritual angle for granted by not even acknowledging it; but it is there.
 
It has to do with how far into your future you can see? I dare say it is not enough for you to have goals set; the real work is how to translate what is on paper to reality (remember that in Week 51 of last year, I reiterated the need to commit your goals to paper?)
 
Simply, what we need to translate these set goals into reality is our IMAGINATION. It was the same thing the Almighty God used in His re-creation work. With the darkness on the face of the deep, He brought forth those things which were not as though they already were! That is the power of imagination. And I have discovered that the most potent achievers are those who are ‘slaves’ to their imagination.
 
See, nobody can see what is in your imagination, so there is little chance your strategies would be stolen before you deploy them. You can become whatever you want in your imagination, and no demon from the pit of hell can see what is in your imagination, if you master the art positively.
 
How to horn your imaginative skills should be your next question. The answer is in our topic this week – HOW FAR CAN YOU SEE? If all you can see is just 2018 vis-a-vis your goals for 2018, then I am afraid you cannot really be as imaginative as you need. See far ahead into the future. Imagine what you are planning will be like in the life of your generations unborn. That was what the Almighty God wanted Abram to do when he asked him to imagine his generations as the stars of the sky!
 
And it is for this same reason that successfully run organizations plan for periods of long years not for singular years! Reason why 1st world nations plan for at least 5 years ahead on issues! Nigeria too started on this road at independence with the FIVE YEAR DEVELOPMENT PLANS, but which again, bad leadership canceled on the altar of expediency. See how moribund our infrastructure became! So, all I have been explaining above is the reason why you and I must see farther than we ever have this year! And I am certain we would reap the rewards abundantly! So, my friend, HOW FAR CAN YOU SEE?
 
See you next week by His grace. You shall excel In Jesus’ mighty name. We love you!

Book Cover_Multiple Streams of IncomeMultiple Streams of Income: How to Generate a Lifetime of Unlimited Wealth by Robert G. Allen

My dear friends, remember we are in the Quarter of Divine Wisdom? It is in this spirit that it gives us great pleasure in recommending as our MUST READ BOOK of the month Robert G. Allen’s seminal work – Multiple Streams of Income. Who is this author? Robert G. Allen was born on May 20, 1948 in Raymond, Alberta. He is a Canadian-American business man. After graduating with an MBA from Brigham Young University, in 1974, he began making small real estate investments and eventually became a self-made millionaire and amassed a multi-million dollar net worth in just a few years.

In “Multiple Streams of Income,” this bestselling author presents ten (10) revolutionary new methods for generating over $100,000 a year–on a part-time basis, working from your home, using little or none of your own money. For this book, Allen researched hundreds of income-producing opportunities and narrowed them down to ten surefire moneymakers anyone can profit from. This revised edition includes a new chapter on a cutting-edge investing technique.

Trust me dear friends, you want to read this book. It has transformed many lives and I am sure yours will not be different, if you apply all the principles enunciated therein. Financial embarrassment will not be your portion anymore.

You shall excel IJMN. We love you!
