“The worse thing about success? Is a little bit”
When I first heard that said to me I was like huh? What does that mean? “The worse thing about success? Is a little bit” what??? What could that possibly mean???. Now 6 years later I totally get it! And it’s so true.
The worse thing about success? Is a little bit, to some people anyway. Suddenly they turn into somebody who leaves their humility behind, appreciation of who got them there in the first place and end up broke. I don’t just mean cash broke, I mean health, spiritually and emotionally broke too.
If you think chasing success will get you anywhere think again, it won’t. I know, I use to be one of them, people! I had a lot more to learn and a lot more to experience before my feet finally stayed grounded. Plus, I had to stop acting like a spoilt brat and live by the rules of what was placed on this planet 4,000 years ago by its creator before I could finally see where I had been going wrong for so long.
Fame chasers leave behind all appreciation for others, feel like their better than others and run away from responsibilities and completely forget that they are just a normal human being like the rest of us. The only way to get outrageous success in the marketplace is if you do things right! If you are hard working, respectful, loving, caring and appreciative. Which all comes into the stewardship principles.
If you have never heard of the stewardship principles and you run a business or a company, then now maybe is the time to get to know them. Maybe this blog is what you just need to fetch your attention to them so that you yourself do not end up burnt out, fed up and chasing a dream that seems to move further away from you at every corner you turn.
The stewardship principles have been around for 4,000 years, are simple, powerful and strict spiritual principles that gain results if you use them and MEAN them. They will not work with a divided heart and MUST come from a place of 100% meaning and not because you think you need to do them in order to get what you want.
I will take you through 3 of the stewardship principles in this blog post, but I would consider checking them all out and really learning them and adding them to your business and life to gain results you never thought possible.
Proverbs 13:15 “The way of the unfaithful is hard”
You being 100% honest and teaching, serving or providing service from complete integrity will keep you transparent in everything you do and have people loving you for it. If customers and followers know they can come to you for a complete honest service, they will keep coming back to you.
Lie, cheat and steal and it will all come tumbling down on your head. If you just cheat people out of money to line your own pockets, then the success will only last for so long, then you will be hit with a massive dry season that could lead to you not earning for quite some time. Suddenly you will go from having a stash of cash to zero almost overnight and be left wondering how the heck that happened? .. Integrity and honesty walks hand in hand to your success and constant flow of customers to your service.
Money- Something that a heck of a lot of people on this planet is not faithful with. Are you paying your bills on time? Or are you making excuses and wasting your cash elsewhere? Are you donating 10% of what you earn every time you are paid? Are you ignore them bills and buying unimportant items you don’t need instead? … It all leads back to “The way of the unfaithful is hard”.
This is one you need to peel back your eyes and read to take in the information and not miss it! We can all consider ourselves appreciative of everything, especially if you are on the journey of self-discovery and you have come across The Law of Attraction on your travels and that the main aim of The Law of Attraction is you are a magnet and attracting every thought, emotion and feeling that you are. Only, that’s a pin head of the reality of it all and when we think we are really appreciative of everything, the reality is we are far from it.
When things don’t show up we get frustrated, chuck a wobbler and take to social media to moan, bitch and complain how bad something is like a complete spoilt brat. We constantly look outside ourselves and forget to prosper where we are planted, because, in order for something better to be rewarded to us, we have to go back to principle 1. which is learning faithfulness with the small things so that we can be rewarded with bigger things! No Law of Attraction class teaches you that!
Romans: 13:9: “You shall not covet”.
This principle focuses on thought. It is an imperative against setting one’s desire on things that are forbidden. You desire the success, wealth, beautiful homes and wads of cash that you see flaunted in front of your face every day with 1,001 adverts in your social media feed promising you 6 figures in 6 weeks and it’s feeding your greed. It’s feeding it so bad you chase it and forget to be “faithful” to the life you have now. You forget to love what you have now. Want to know why success is running from you and other’s seem to get it fast? It’s because they are more truly faithful with what they had, and as a result, they were rewarded with far better.
“Gotta do better, gotta drive faster, gotta have more, I must be the best and beat everyone else out there. I must have 6 figures, I must have a big house and I must have a big car, because only THEN will I feel like I have made it.”
WRONG!!!!! There are stronger forces and divine powers way above your head, and right now you are EXACTLY where you are supposed to be because how you are showing up is dictating how much “they”, or, “he” (whichever your spiritual preference) trusts you with. So if you have not got the life you want right now, then maybe you need to take a step back and love what you already have and be completely faithful to it.
This is just 3 of many powerful stewardship principles there is to learn. I hope by sharing these 3 powerful ones with you today it really starts your week with an eye-opening start to doing things differently.
