…for all the land which you see I give to you and your descendants forever. – Genesis 13:15
Observation is a powerful tool in the school of personal development. Striving to see beyond what obtains in our immediate environment is very crucial to achieving greatness. This is called exposure. The potential we carry as God’s children is so huge but sometimes, it takes seeing its fulfilment in some other person or place to spur us into our own* fulfilment. There are many things we have termed impossible only because we have not seen them happen around us.
When God wanted to convince the patriarch Abraham about becoming a father of nations, though he was childless at the time, He brought him out and exposed him to the numerous stars in the sky as a tool of altering his perspective. That singular event changed Abraham’s perspective and helped him see the possibility of becoming a father.
Families can improve dramatically by being exposed. Nations can be transformed when their leaders are exposed to other nations that have solved the problems they are still battling with.
Business owners can visit other larger business and observe their processes and corporate culture; if this is done repeatedly, in only a matter of time, their own businesses will also become a reference point for excellence and greatness.
Take a break from your normal routine today and just take a walk, or drive down to one of the nicest places in town and SEE how things can be done excellently; with intense desire, we can pick lessons from these places and affect our own spaces for good.
Dear God, thank you for the gift of progress. I pray that my life will take on an upward turn through the vehicle of personal development and that you will cause all that is required for a developed life to come my way and that I will be duly equipped to recognize and utilize them as they show up.
