“If you are already wise, you will become even wiser. And if you are smart, you will learn to understand” – Proverbs 1:5(CEV)
Money consistently flows towards the point of highest value. One of the major starting points for increasing your financial status is to increase your value. Value basically means ‘worth’. So, as you increase your value to others, you increase your worth, hence the term ‘net worth’. What people pay for is value, not necessarily gifts, talents or even passion, what people pay for is value. Until you can make all that you have value to others, currency won’t flow easily to you.
I believe a man was not made as a finality but as a possibility! Crude oil is a God-given gift to man, but that’s not its final state. It is then refined to its various produces which can then be used for various domestic functions. It’s not really useful until it becomes petrol, kerosene, paraffin, etc. Its value is based on its ability to be refined. If there were no refineries, no one would pay for crude oil.
So, any investments being made into you at any stage in life, a salary, an allowance, pocket money, whatever it may be is not only done for the present value you produce, it is done because there is an expectation for growth and for an increase in value.
Invest in development, invest in refining, invest in increasing your value. Any form of learning, through formal or informal education, mentorship, the experience will increase your value and in turn, you’re worth.
My God and father, the training I need, to be a greater version of your expectation of me, let me not miss it. I break free from the chains of procrastination in Jesus name.
