SECRETS TO GAINING CONTINUOUS INCREASE
Most of us work hard on daily basis, to assure ourselves that we have a regular increase, in different aspects of our lives. We work to increase our estates. We work hard to ensure an increase in investments, profits, savings, income, etc. Increase my friends, is a natural tenet.
When we talk about increase, as I have earlier said, increase is natural, not just to man. Increase is natural to all living things. It is a sign of life. Our desire for increase is a sign that we are alive.
Increase at times is so natural that you don’t need to do much for it to come. Sometimes we grow physically big without doing much things about it. A lot of things in nature answer to increase which is a law of nature. Many things will grow in life without soliciting for it. That though is only one aspect of increase. In most cases however, increase only answers to pressure. In other cases, increase only answers to demands. The amount of demand you lay on increase, the more of it you get. The more pressure you place on yourself, in search of increase the more you will likely get of it. It is self-deceptive to simply lie in bed, letting everything run its cause and yet expect to have increase.
Even though there are some things that come naturally, even in terms of increase, yet, you would find out that most of those things that don’t need any efforts to increase, are normally the less significant things of life. To have great and impressive increase, we need to do more than lying down and wishing for the best. We will need to get off the bed, lay a demand on ourselves and exert enough pressure, as much as necessary to get the kind of increase we need.
Some of these pressures would include, a demand on self to add value. It will include a time of preparation. It will include efforts at work. It will include the demand of self-discipline. It will include the pressure of labor, of taking decisions, of acting out our decisions. Whoever is able to lay more demand on himself, enjoys the most increase, most of the time. That is simply the way God made the world to function.
“And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.” ― Anaïs Nin
HOW DO YOU QUALIFY INCREASE?
Increase could be qualified in different ways. Increase could both be visible and invisible. Increase could be quantitative or qualitative. Some increase happens within us and are not seen by the outside world. In most of the cases though, that type of increase would eventually lead to a quantitative increase that is manifested outwardly. Life reality tells us that to grow physically, you first need to grow inwardly. It is your increase inside, in invisible things that would determine your outward physical increase.
