I should have rounded up the sub-topic: Opportunities but I am getting more than I can pen down which I believe is for you.
Favorable conditions abound I discussed with you last week for those who love God(their Strength) and those who operate in their calling (business wise) but these words alone cannot help identify opportunities when they come!
How will i identify/recognize Opportunities?
I want to tell you I am also learning a bunch as I'm penning down these words. I confess to you they are never the words of my head nor hands but pure inspirations of God!
Opportunities abound around you but they are always on disguise! How do I mean?
Gold in its crude is always in disguise so is Crude oil, So opportunities hide under troubles, trials and temptations. You can tell what it takes to extract crude and gold because I know you are aware of how these two invaluable natural resources are buries deep down in the ends of the earthen- So are your opportunities!
Favorable conditions do not birth favorable conditions, Unfavorable conditions does!- Oluwatobi Oshunbiyi.
Permit me explore this sub-topic with this biblical passage:
Its not our Biblical exposition day so I'm be conscious of that.
In the passage above, the king had a dream which he forgot, and he called upon the magicians, astrologers, sorcerers and chaldeans to say the dream and interpret it but you can tell that is impossible!
How can I tell your dreams even if I can interpret it?
It was on and on till a decree was made in Verse 13 that they all will be killed, the wise men inclusive. The man Daniel identified his opportunity so fast, he made inquiries why the decree is so hasty from the king and went in speaking to the king asking for time(verse16).
Nugget 1: Opportunities are hidden beneath trials, troubles and temptations by nature, what you need is to identify them by making inquiries and subject them to time. Even gold and crude are subjected to time; refining and fractional distillation.
Nugget 2: Daniel went home and made this known to his companions(Verse 17).
Who are your companions? Who are your external Strength??
I discussed with you under weaknesses that you should avoid being threatened by your external strengths- those your weaknesses have attracted to you! They cannot take the glory nor credit, they will just be part of your success process speeding up the rate.
Nugget 3: when the two aforementioned are being put in place, results come.
Alas! The secret was revealed to Daniel in a Night vision. How much of the Night do you maximize?
Then secret(dream and interpretation) was revealed to the king and this made Daniel a great man(Verse 48). The king gave him many great gifts and made him ruler over the whole Province of Babylon.
To Identify your Opportunities:
(a) Be ready for the Opportunity, they come as challenges
(b) Make inquiries about what you see as an opportunity
(c) Do not be defensive about your external strengths- You are made to relate
(d) Use your Strengths(internal)- God and your gifts because you saw the opportunity, its you God will also reveal the secrets to.
(e) Opportunities are always solutions to eradicate problems. Apply what you have gotten(secrets) even in the un-favorable conditions to reveal the favorable- A great You!
Do not be scared to proffer the Solutions you have because that is the dream the world is looking for. Do remember you have got the strength too, both the Internal and External- Companions and business partners.
