Greatness is not an occasion. It is a life style
inculcated by being responsible. A lot of us shy
away from being responsible, ignorant of the fact
thatwe indirectly flee from being great for
responsibility is the price of greatness.
Be responsible for who you are
Be responsible for what you do
Be responsible for what you have received
Be responsible to those you lead
Life is not a gift – it is an investment from which
the investor expects great returns. You can't afford
to live it anyhow.
Potential needs purpose to give it direction. Desire
is “craving enough to sacrifice for”. It’s only we are
willing to die for what we desire, that we’ll receive it.
Only what you desire when you pray, not what you
pray for – is what you shall have.
Desire for a thing keeps you on the road of consistency.
"Potential needs desire to place demands on it."
-Dr. Myles Munroe
Money flows that’s why it’s called Currency and it flows in
the direction of value. Value is something you have that is
desirable to someone else. The more valuable a thing
becomes the more money it costs.
Value is directly proportional to the needs the product meets.
Value changes depending on circumstances and individuals.
When you say there’s no money, your mind and invariably
your eyes close to opportunities.
Ways to make money
1. Offer a valuable product or service. Don’t let your
emotions think for you. Ideas that are implemented
rule the world.
2. Research the customers’ needs and the likely changes
they would like to see in the products or services.
3. Increase the value and quantity of your product. Adapt
it to the ever changing needs of the customer. The
greatest millionaires are servants of their clients.
4. Work on perception and image. Work on the share of
your customer’s mind. Image is important. Present
yourself in a prestigious form.
5. Repetition is a law of lasting impression and
advertising is basically all about repetition.
HOW TO BE RICH: Being a solution (Personalized)
If I want to be relevant in this life, I have got to be a
solution. It may be to someone’s problems, or an
organization’s or a nation’s or even to better still to the
world’s problems. The fun thing is the bigger the number
of people whose problems I can provide a solution to the
quicker I get to being relevant.
The age old tips to being a solution are:
Finding a problem and solving it
Finding a need and meeting it
Finding a desire and filling it
Finding a hurt and healing it
To be able to proffer a solution to people’s problems,
needs, desires or hurts, I have to discover what
these problems, needs, desires or hurts are. This can
be done easily by asking them or figuring out what
they might need to solve these problems, meet these
needs, fulfill these desires or heal these hurts. (The
management jargon used for this is market research).
The next step then is to think of what products or services
needed and create or provide them to achieve these ends.
