Do Not Rush the Foundation!
No wise person who builds starts from the top down.
If you start from the top you will miss building the foundation. For anything to stand strong it needs a firm foundation.
When architects and carpenters design and build houses they never start building from the roof down.
They always start from the floor up. They know once they get the foundation going they can build something solid and even if shaken, it will be able to stand and not crumble.
The foundation of a thing determines the strength and durability of a thing. Also note, the wider the foundation, usually the longer the length.
You can never have a narrow foundation and a broad building. That will cause the thing to crumble and be destroyed.
Perhaps the reason why the foundation of what you are building seems to be taking so long is because of the length of how much you will build.
God cannot rush the process because of what you are destined for.
If the process is rushed you miss building something strong.
Fall back and learn to flow with The Holy Spirit. Do not rush the foundation that you miss building something strong.
To Make Money You Need Money!
I have always wondered and given some really deep thoughts to this.
I will never underestimate the challenging process for any person seeking employment and even seeking to create their own business or jobs.
Money is fundamental to success and development. Money is needed to make the first step and it makes it possible for any person to move forward.
Think about it though, before you can go on interviews or work you need the basic resources (clothing, food gas/bus fare etcetera).
What system does the government of your country puts in place to facilitate or help those who may be seeking employment or create jobs but do not have the basic funds or startup capital?
Apart from borrowing loans and help from families/ relatives, what are some of the ways you can legally obtain finance through the government or private organizations in your country?
This would apply especially for young people who are just leaving high school without experience and or coming out of universities with loan debts and have not a dime to their name.
If you have been through this, what did you do?
As an entrepreneur, what was the process like for you?
Our generation has become too comfortable.
In an era where technology has become so advanced and there are so many opportunities available, should not we be the generation of young people with great work ethics, ideas and inventions that makes changes and create reservoirs of jobs and opportunities?
Surely, I can understand our fore parents and they not having access to the resources we do have now but they worked extremely hard with little or no technology, so my question, what is it that is causing this level of stagnancy or may I say under performance?
What are your thoughts and ideas as a young people/ person with so much potential and the determination to accomplish great things and not live below the poverty line or depend on Social Welfare?
Obedience to God!
Your loyalty to people should NEVER supersede your obedience to God.
Your decision and action towards others MUST always be on the basis of what you know, and what God shows, tells and confirms to you.
Believe me when I say, you will save yourself much heartache and pain.
God will never tell you to be loyal to something or someone who has the intentions of destroying or hurting you.
He will rather protect you from it or them. Guard your heart and make no apology for protecting it.
Let me just say that most of the times the people with genuine and pure hearts are those who are taken advantage of.
You are not weak. You are not foolish. You just have a good heart. The problem is that you need to guard your heart.
Often times, these are the ones the enemy will attempt to hurt or defile so they will lose hope and doubt the existence of true and pure love.
Never doubt your discernment or overlook the red flags shown to you because you want to believe the best about someone you respect or are loyal to.
It is unfortunate that some people will not believe it until they see it but this can be deadly. Trust what God says even if it goes against what others say.
When it comes to God sometimes you will not always see it but you must believe what He says even if you do not see what He is saying.
Sometimes God will allow you to experience the hurt of what you never thought you would because of your need to come to the reality of the evil intended, aimed and hurled at you.
