We are living in a time where there are so many opportunities available to the person who will take advantage of them. This post is a follow up from our previous post where we talked about the problem of a sense of entitlement. In this post you will learn some basic principles about how you can make the most of your gifts and opportunities to realize your dreams.
I did mention in a previous post that you must first do your fighting in prayer and God will show you what you should do. When he does it then becomes your responsibility to take action on the revelation you receive. Let us have a look at things that you can do to maximize your potential and live your best life.
1. Be Hard Working
You can think of life as two sides of the same coin. You can’t have one without the other. Consider what one of my favorite scriptures says,
“While the earth remains, seedtime and harvest, cold and heat, winter and summer, and day and night shall not cease.” ~ Genesis 8:22
In order to reap a harvest you first need to sow seed into fertile ground. Without sowing seed there is no way you can expect a harvest. This is a simple law to understand but not so easy to follow, it’s almost shocking. Yes, God does bless us with more than we can imagine but for Him to do that in many cases there has to be this basic foundation. Put in the effort and you can expect a reward even though it may not happen according to your timing.
2. Work Smart
In the present time we live in today, the Information Age, there is so much opportunity now for you to extend your hard work beyond your own borders. As a digital marketer I have seen the vast opportunity that the Internet presents to market products and services not just in your local area but all over the world. We are now living in a global economy and while it scares some people it is a massive opportunity for others.
In the Industrial Age people mostly just relied on working hard and a pension plan from the company they worked for. Pensions in this day and age are almost non-existent because the times have changed. The Information Age as I have already mentioned has vast opportunities that have enabled people like Facebook Founder, Mark Zuckerburg, to make billions of dollars at a young age. For more insight on how you can take advantage of these opportunities be sure to send a message via the contact form to get assistance on how to take advantage of them.
3. Leverage Your Time
No matter how hard working or efficient you are there is only so much you can do as an individual. To really maximize your potential you need a solid team that you can count on. Anything of significance is achieved through teamwork so that is something you should take advantage of. Working with a team frees you up to focus on what’s really important to you and spend time with the people that you love.
I trust this information has given you hope that you can actually change the direction of your life. You have what it takes to become what you aspire to become. In John 10:10 Jesus says, “I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.”
