YOU MUST MASTER THIS ACT TO BECOME RICH
Work! Work is one of the greatest wealth God has given to us because without work, you cannot explore space and time. Space, be it land, trees or oceans, cannot all be explored without work. Work is one of the greatest wealth God has given to us. Work ranks after time and space. Work is one of the greatest blessings God has given to man. For without work you cannot explore the earth, firmament, universe, oceans, lands, desserts etc. without work, you cannot derive any physical wealth from any of them.
Hence, when some people say they are spiritual and as such they don’t have to work, because work came with the curse of man, I get really amazed at their ignorance. Before the curse came, before Adam and Eve fell, or before they sinned, God had already given them work to do. As a matter of fact, before Eve was even created, God has already given Adam work. There was work in the Garden of Eden even before Satan came around to tempt Eve. Thus, work is a blessing. Anyone telling you that God is for you and if you are spiritual you shouldn’t work is not normal.
I heard some pastors preach that if you are working, it is a sign that God is not for you. They are just being ignorant of the truth. Shying away from work is the highest form of stupidity. The Pastors preaching this kind of sermon are not using their minds at all. They are totally off and not in touch with the truth. So if God who is the creator of heaven and earth works, God also created you and me, if He works, then what will stop you from working?
Don’t let anyone deceive you; if you want to be wealthy, you must make hard work your best friend. Those who became wealthy are those who have mastered the act of hard work. If you want to be wealthy, then you have to embrace hard work.
“The dictionary is the only place that success comes before work. Work is the key to success, and hard work can help you accomplish anything.” ― Vince Lombardi Jr.
I will tell you a little story about Fabian to bring this point home to you. Fabian was a very talented keyboardist. He had some students which he tutors. However, Fabian was not really given to hard work to sharpen his skills. One of his students named George, who was not as talent as his three other students who he was teaching, was totally given to hard work.
George took it upon himself to practice hours and hours daily after their class section with Fabian. Two years later after their piano classes with Fabian, George was still practicing his keyboard at least three hours daily. He became so perfect and discovered several new skills on his own.
Three years down the lane, they had a national music festival in their city as they all lived in the capital city of the nation. There was going to be an award for the best singer, best instrumentalist of most of the instruments, keyboard being one of the instruments on the list.
When this music festival was announced George immediately began to practice for six months straight for six to seven hours daily. On the day of the music festival George emerged the winner and got the award for the best keyboard player in the nation and beating his teacher Fabian to it. He got a recording contract and became a million over night. As some would like to say but that is totally untrue. What some people might just stand at the music festival and call overnight success took George over three years of nonstop hard work.
Even his teacher could not believe his eyes, when he heard and saw George’s performance. He was totally amazed and blow away by it. He never expected that George who was the least talented among his students will be the one beating him at the music festival.
Oh yes! It takes hard work to harness the wealth within you. If you do not take advantage of hard work, you will never achieve anything tangible in life talk more of having riches or being wealthy.
