HOW TO CONVERT YOURSELF INTO WEALTH
How will you live your life to ensure that you will definitely convert yourself into wealth? For you to be rich, you need to learn how to think. Rich people are thinkers. They are people of knowledge and they are people of analysis. They are people who can think and analyze. Analytical thinking, strategic thinking and critical thinking are necessary if you want to be rich. Unfortunately, the poor man assumes that thinking is a waste of time. Poor people, instead of thinking critically, analytically or strategically, will rather prefer to live by illusions, dreams, and miracles.
While rich people are relying on critical thinking, analytical thinking and strategic thinking; poor people are always expecting that God to bless them. They are hoping and are always living in the hope that God will do it. They believe that by the grace of God, maybe one day they will be lucky. Little do they know that what they are practicing is mysticism. They believe that if they pray very well, if they attend all church service and don’t miss any service, if the pastor will lay hands on them, if they will be blessed by the man of God, God might favour them. They are always looking for favour. They are always expecting something from nowhere, nothing concrete.
While they are busy expecting favour, the rich people are busy having concrete deals, concrete projects, concrete means, concrete strategy, concrete ideas, concrete business plans and concrete relationships. This is in contrast to the attitude of the poor who are always day dreaming and hoping that tomorrow will be better than today.
Some of the statements made by the poor man includes; ‘I know I will make it tomorrow by the grace of God.’ ‘I don’t know how, but I know.’ Anytime you hear ‘I don’t know how’, you can be almost sure it is the poor man talking. The poor man may also say ‘I just believe it will happen somehow.’ They are always living in hope and expectations without any basis for it. Thinking that they are trusting God. Well it might interest you to know that God is not foolish, neither can He be manipulated. He is not just going to say, ‘because you are trusting in me, I will just go and violet all my own laws and principles and change all my order and protocol’. He will not do that because he is a God of order.
So instead of dreaming and hoping that one day something will happen and praying by the grace of God and in the name of Jesus for something to happen. Why not try spending time to think.
Go ask your parents and they will tell you that that is how they were thinking all their lives until they got married and had you and their hope still have not come to pass. The poor live by illusions rather than living by facts. So, my question to you is this, are you going to be rich or poor?
It is funny how the poor believe everything a man of God says to them. As far as they are concerned, if the man of God has said it and they shout amen, they will go home bless. They shout ‘I receive, I receive’ and after receiving they walk back home, without even having money for transportation… indeed they received. This is foolishness in the highest order. Why will you choose to live a life of mirage? Why will you choose to live a life based on illusions?
To be continued Tomorrow, don’t miss it.
