Lasting Success.

Why many don't have lasting success 1.
Happy new week blog reader's.
Last week we talked about what our motivation should be- Excellence or Money? If you missed it, check it out here.

This week I want to discuss lasting success with you and why many don't have it. I will adopt some point from Pastor Sunday Adelaja and I will introduce some other two to you in the course of the month.
Have it:

  1. YOUR COMFORT ZONE.
There can be no doubt that excellence begats success and it demands that you step out of your comfort zone which not too many people are willing to do.  It is the unwillingness to step out of one’s comfort zone that keeps most people mediocre. It is that same unwillingness that reduces people to only want to make the money without the excellence.  

That is why people want to attain position without paying the price of excellence.  
Any kind of success attained this way will be short lived.
A promotion attained through excellence though, endures for generations and generations to come.

 In the long run, it makes better sense to pay the price of discomfort and attain the height of excellence rather than maintaining the status quo without leaving your comfort zone.

“Excellence is an art won by training and habituation. We do not act rightly because we have virtue or excellence, but we rather have those because we have acted rightly. We are what
we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit.” ― Aristotle

Yes, you could occupy the position, make the money, but you would not leave an enduring legacy.
In most cases you would still have to leave that comfort zone at a time you least expect it and at a cost you are not willing to pay.

Anyhow you look at it, paying the temporary price of discomfort and getting the reward of excellence is always better than enjoying the status quo of a comfort zone which you will eventually lose anyway.

Apart from bringing you out of your comfort zone, excellence demands from you preparation and training. Nobody attains excellence without the necessary process of preparation and training.
That is what you do when nobody sees you.
It is the rigors of self-education that you go through while others play. It is the pain of self- preparation that you engage in while others are partying.

Preparation and training are those things you do in the solitude of your studies when others are basking in the sun on the beach.
Ladies and gentlemen, there is no excellence without preparation and training.
It is what you do in secret that determines your public manifestation.
Those hours of preparation are never in vain. There will be a handsome reward to you sometime in the future.

When your training and preparation is constant enough to lead to excellence.

One day:
Excellence will elevate you.
Excellence will crown your efforts. Excellence will bring about your celebration.
Excellence will lay a table before you, in the presence of your colleagues, after they come back from their sun bathing.

“To become successful, do the little extra things that ordinary people refuse to do. The little extra hard work, little extra practice, little extra studying and the little extra positive attitude.” ― Archibald Marwizi

Till next week when i will be bringing to you another reason many people don't have lasting success.

You don't birth Excellence(Lasting Success) in your comfort zone, there you excel-less.
Do have an excellent week.

THE 7 DISPENSATIONS IN THE BIBLE

Dispensationalism is a method of interpreting history that divides God’s work and purposes toward mankind into different periods of time. Usually, there are seven dispensations identified, although some theologians believe there are nine. Others count as few as three or as many as thirty-seven dispensations. 

In this article, we will limit ourselves to the seven basic dispensations found in scripture.

SPIRITUAL INTERACTION 1

John 12:24
[24]Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except a corn of wheat fall into the ground and die, it abideth alone: but if it die, it bringeth forth much fruit. 


There are depths in the spirit just as there are depths in the soil. Death in the Bible verse above represents an interaction (of the seed with the soil).

Nothing grows by itself. Whatever will grow must interact and be interacted with.

The seed (you) interacts with its environment (God) to bear fruits.
Thus, there are two keys of interaction;
1. The object to be planted (the seed - you),
2. The environment (God).

God is the ultimate environment of our spiritual nature and we are so constituted by God that we cannot interact without him.

God is the environment and not the object!

Google is an aberrated system of God to teach men that there is a system in Him that can help men search out the realities of God, the very deep things of God - a system of interaction and knowing the heart of the Father.

But, a generation will never…

THE MYSTERY OF HIS PRESENCE

Have you ever wondered why God will not honour the words of certain men and honour that of another?
Have you ever thought about something  like this or experienced this:
The Bible says .....You shall lay your hands upon the sick and they will recover(Mark 16:18b). You laid your hands and instead of a recovery, you found a discovery – that the man is not healed and the sickness/disease has back-fired. This can be painful......  until a young man comes and at the sound of his voice, the infirmity flees.
Has this ever bothered you?
Or that a man speaks into existence instantly what you have been begging God for with fasting and prayers.




I bring you a mystery today!

THE REVIVAL AND THE MOVES OF GOD

Genesis 2:4-6
[4]These are the generations of the heavens and of the earth when they were created, in the day that the LORD God made the earth and the heavens,
[5]And every plant of the field before it was in the earth, and every herb of the field before it grew: for the LORD God had not caused it to rain upon the earth, and there was not a man to till the ground.
[6]But there went up a mist from the earth, and watered the whole face of the ground.

God had not caused it to rain upon the earth because there was no man. God is helpless without a man and will never be able to send down His rain(move) on earth without a man.

Thus, there are two elements that makes up the move of God:
1. A man
2. Territories

What is the Move of God?
The move of God is God moving men through roles in His agenda which births events called Revivals.
A revelation of Alignment!

Kingdom advancement is territorial and not just personal. The value system of the kingdom must translate from you and be reflected in your…

SPIRITUAL INTELLIGENCE

Revelation 22:14
Blessed are those who do the commandments that they may have the right to the tree of life, and may enter through the gates into the city.

Any man that keeps the commandments of God opens himself up to the right to the tree of life that he may find himself eating of that tree.

There is a force of creation, and one of the factors that you must get correctly is COMMANDMENTS.

Commandments are God’s word to a man. They are the very element used by God to make covenants with men. It is the first dimension in the ordinance cycle.


What then is ordinance?
Ordinance is simply the embodiment of the codes of creation. It is ordinance that makes LAWS.
DOWNLOAD AUDIO MESSAGE ON SPIRITUAL INTELLIGENCE 1
There are two dimensions of laws.
1. Spiritual laws and
2. Natural laws
These two dimensions merge into what is called PRINCIPLES.

Principles are bodies of laws (spiritual and natural laws) with God's integrity on them.
Everything is built by laws; governed by principles and activate…
