When I woke up I was pondering about life, I discovered that:

Sometimes, to succeed in life you need ENEMIES…. Yes!!!

You need people who will mock you, so that you can run to God.

You need people who will try to intimidate you, so that you can be courageous.

You need people who will say "NO" so that you can learn how to be independent…I mean how to do it yourself.

You need people who will disappoint you so that you can put all your trust in God alone.

You need people who will work towards you loosing that job, so that you can start your own big business.

You need people who will sell your 'Joseph' so that 'you' can get to Egypt and be a Prime Minister in a strange land of captivity.

You need a cruel landlord, so that you won't be too comfortable in someone else's house, then you can build your own house on time.

But sometimes, when we are disappointed, we feel very bad and we tend to remain on that spot. Not knowing that the end-point of disappointment is the beginning of your accomplishments.

Understand this, "that every disappointment you once had came with a blessing!" However, it is not everyone that partakes in this blessing that I'm talking about.

You cannot see a new OPEN door while you are still putting all your attention, time and energy in trying to force the closed one to open.

And again I say, "No disappointment can ever come without an attached blessing!"

So, when the disappointment come, thank God for it and tell "HIM" to open your eyes to see the new blessing that HE has for you!

Disappointment is PHASE1 while accomplishment is PHASE2.I doubt if one can jump the protocols.

That is why it is called BREAKTHROUGH Something must BREAK so that you can go THROUGH!

Encourage someone today….you are lifted.

Bless others by sharing this.

Have a blessed Tuesday

a.gif Entrepreneurial Characteristics

It is clear that the definitions of the 'entrepreneur' are not similar. However, there are certain qualities and/or functions which explicitly or implicitly, feature in most of them. Each definition contains similar notions, such as newness/value, organizing, creating wealth, and risk taking, despite viewing the entrepreneur from a slightly different perspective. Failing to agree on a single definition, entrepreneurship specialists have resorted to drawing up lists of qualities and/or functions which typify the entrepreneur. Invariably, these lists include a combination of characteristics: People with entrepreneurial qualities and skills tend to enjoy the challenges, the hard work and the success of self-employment… read more
