Move Your World

“Give me a lever long enough and a fulcrum on which to place it, and I shall move the world.” – Archimedes

There’s nothing that is utterly impossible to achieve in this world. Imagine a lever that is long enough to move the whole world, it must be big and strong enough. Furthermore, the spot where you will  place your lever is critical.

The same applies to any endeavor that we dream of pursuing in our own lives. Having the right lever and location the necessary fulcrum point is mandatory if one is to succeed. Success does not happen by chance, it is by preparing well.

More Experience

Experience, one word that just doesn’t seem to leave the mouths of hiring managers. It seems like every corporation and organization is largely interested in people who have substantial hands-on experience. Experience matters alot. People with experience are respected in diverse fields even when they don’t have any significant achievement attached to their name.

Look, all great success is a product of a wider experience, be it your own experience or your mentors’ or that of the author that you hold in high esteem. There can be no great breakthrough in any venture or pursuit without the application of manifold experiences. 

A number of business books encourage that you get into your first business as fast as possible so that you can learn from it. Most of these business gurus believe that one’s first businesses don’t usually amass great yields. However, as time goes on, he learns from them and later builds gigantic businesses. 

This somehow applies to any personal or corporate pursuit. The reason why we recieve software updates on our devices every time and then is because these companies are continually learning from their experiences. Whatever you want to pursue in your own life, make sure you delve into it as fast as possible, and learn as you go. 

Living for Tomorrow

“… by setting forth the truth plainly we commend ourselves to everyone’s conscience in the sight of God.” – 2 Corinthians 4:2 (NIV)

Alot of people live their lives only for the moment, they base all their pursuits on momentary satisfaction. Everything that they do, they do it sorely to survive the day, whether it be business, or job.

One is more productive when he puts much of his of her efforts into developing him or herself into the person he or she wants to be tomorrow. The man who aspires to be a sales manager should not merely focus making more sales than his of her fellows,  she of he has to put more also into developing his or her sales management skills. This is what better qualifies her to attain that position. Apart from that this is what a sales management position is all about.

Speak Well Of Others

Time to time again, we are all faced with various opportunities to pull up or put down the people in our lives in the ways we talk about them to others. Whether we are introducing our friends, telling a story about them or sharing a colleague’s work, how we “speak about them matters a lot”. 

Hearing someone else speak well of your work and personality boosts up your confidence and makes you feel that the work that you do matters.

Excellence is a Matter of Consistent Practice

Excellence is not necessarily a product of talent but a product of practice and preparation. This may sound rather unusual in an age where college students switch courses all the time, and ambitious youths change their career paths very often. The reason is not that the program was just difficult for them or that they didn’t have what it takes to take it down.

Everyone has what it takes to attain to any level of success, do any business, learn any art and master any skill. How is that possible? You just have to keep at it and never stop.

Regardless of how gifted a person may be, he cannot attain to stardom without rigorous practice. Consistent practice matters alot when it comes to excellence. 

Not just any practice, but the kind that hurts and stretches you, and in turn prefects you. When you do this the world starts to call you a genius and a whiz.

The world continues to be in awe of Albert Estein’s brain power, and marvels at the brainiac that he was. Unfortunately, no one seems to pay attention to the hundreds of hours he spent in the lab and his one thousand failed attempts to create the lightbulb. Every time he failed, he said he had just found out one more way how the lightbulb cannot be made and drew closer to his achievement. 

Don’t drift

“If you will only let me help you, if you will only obey, then I will make you rich!” – Isaiah 1:19 (TLB) 

Many people have not yet taken charge of their lives, they have given over control of their lives to situations around them. Yes, when you let the circumstances around you to dectate the steps that you should take you are drifting. 

Things can only begin to take a shift when you decide to take control over your life and align it with the course of God for your life.
