a business requires patience and determination
It is a process that requires lots of energy and education.
There is no room for short cuts. Short cuts will lead to failure. One must be willing to accept constructive
criticism with grace and not respond with anger, but instead, work harder to
persevere, despite obstacles that might happen along the way, to be willing to
The goal in mind should always be to continue to grow your
business. This will lead to strengthening the business.
Being that the markets are very competitive, entrepreneurs
have to be well educated about their products. They must be prepared to offer
the best competitive products to their customers and to potential customers as
Attitude is what makes the business either fail or succeed.
How you present yourself to others, matters. Getting people to feel comfortable
in your presence, and to become interested in what you are saying, can help a
lot. Even though an individual might not want to do business at the present
time, if you make them feel comfortable, they will more than likely contact you
at a later date.
Being patient is most important in starting a business. Many
young entrepreneurs make the mistake in believing that success comes very
quickly. It takes time to build a successful business.
A sound plan is needed, which has to be put in place for
marketing your product. Building a customer base requires time. Advertising is
also, needed. Financial investments have
to be available to establish any business. The goal is to get your business
functioning on its own to be successful and profitable.
decided to stick with love. Hate is too great a burden to bear.”
Luther King, Jr. (Life Quotes)
shall find out all thine enemies: thy right hand shall find out those that hate
thee. ~ Psalm 21:8 (King James Version)
When we talk
less and listen closely to things that are published, we can gather lots of
information, including some negative things that are being said about us. Some
of the talk that is “heard through the grapevine,” comes from people who we
discover to be our enemies. That’s when we have to use our knowledge to
determine how we want to deal with those who hate us.
Hating those who hate us
is too great a burden to bear. But, we know we can’t ever turn our back to our
enemies. We have to watch and pray, and always be prepared to defend ourselves
with a sound and righteous plan. Our enemies are always plotting and looking
for ways to destroy us.
doesn’t care how he or she destroys. Their only purpose is to win. They have no
remorse. They see their accomplishment as a victory. An enemy can’t be a
friend. That would be impossible.
July 06, 2012 Weak job report out today: 84,000 jobs reportedly were added in June. Many are disappointed.
“Very seldom will a person give up on himself. He continues
to have hope because he knows he has the potential for change ... Yet people
are very quick to give up on friends, and especially on their spouses, to
declare them hopeless, and to either walk away or do nothing more than resign
themselves to a bad situation”.
Hugh Prather (Life Quotes Lib)
Why art thou cast down, O my soul? And why art thou disquieted in me? Hope thou
in God: for I shall yet praise him for the help of his countenance. Psalm 42:5
Yet the Lord will command his lovingkindness in the daytime,
and in the night his song shall be with me, and my prayer unto the God of my
life. Psalm 42:8 (K.J.V)
Hope is the strength that everyone needs to persevere in the
face of unpleasant news. It is a waste
of time and energy to focus on unpleasant news, when one can best help
themselves and others by thinking of ways to deal with an unpleasant situation,
in a positive manner.
In regards to the economy, we have to work together and help
each other. Blaming someone else for the slow growth of the economy, won’t help
it to grow. There are too many other
reasons for the cause of the economy to be weak; some of them are beyond our
human ability to understand.
When each of us look within ourselves as having the ability
to change things, and is willing to work with others to bring about positive
changes, we are a powerful force. With
God on our side, nothing can stop our success.

There are many ways individuals can earn income. The first
step is knowing what he or she want to do. That begins with the most important
interest one has.
We all have a talent or a hobby. The next step is to perfect
that interest, by receiving the necessary training to accomplish a goal.
Receiving training helps an individual to develop a solid plan for a career.
Taking the time to train properly will help to put together a sound plan for your business. Be patient with yourself, while training and putting together your plan. The mistake most people make is wanting to hurry and finish the training too quickly, rather than carefully learning all of the information they need.
One problem that many young business people make, is wanting to have their business to immediately be equal to those who have been in the company for many years. A new business regardless of how good its potential is to become a big business, cannot happen overnight.
I know of some people who I worked with, found out about some of the others who had build a huge clientele and were making "mega bucks." They were driving fancy cars, had expensive suites for their business and lived in the high income neighborhoods. These young business people had barely finished their training, and wanted the same things those people had. That is a setup for failure. It takes lots of years to get to where those people were. It could take three or more years of very hard intense work and careful planning, before a decent income can begin.
Some people get impatient and give up when they don't see lots of money coming in immediately, and move on to something else. Many such people involve themselves with several different kinds of training programs and create lots of debts and expenses, because of a lack of patience, and never achieve success. Those who were patient and continued to stay the course, and accepted advice from those whose businesses were successful, became successful, themselves years later. They actually saved money, by waiting and taking the time to continue improving on their plan until it became successful, now they are making "big bucks."
“My kids are starting to notice I'm a little different from
the other dads. "Why don't you have a straight job like everyone
else?" they asked me the other day.
I told them this story:
In the forest, there was a crooked tree and a straight tree.
Every day, the straight tree would say to the crooked tree, "Look at me...I'm
tall, and I'm straight, and I'm handsome. Look at you...you're all crooked and
bent over. No one wants to look at you." And they grew up in that forest
together. And then one day the loggers came, and they saw the crooked tree and
the straight tree, and they said, "Just cut the straight trees and leave
the rest." So the loggers turned all the straight trees into lumber and
toothpicks and paper. And the crooked tree is still there, growing stronger and
stranger every day.”
― Tom Waits
WHY boastest thou thyself in mischief, O mighty man? The
goodness of God endureth continually. Thy tongue deviseth mischiefs; like a sharp razor, working deceitfully. Thou loveth evil more than good; and lying more than righteousness. Selah. Thou lovest all devouring words, O thou deceitful tongue. God shall likewise destroy thee forever, he shall take thee away, and pluck thee out of thy dwelling place, and root thee out of the land of the living. Selah.
Psalm 52:1-5 (King David)
The Foolish, Pride, Self-righteous, and Vain People, Status
And he spake this parable unto certain which trusted in
themselves that they were righteous, and despised others:
Two men went up into the temple to pray; the one a Pharisee,
and the other a publican.
The Pharisee stood and prayed this with himself, God, I
thank thee, that I am not as other men are, extortioners, unjust, adulterers,
or even as this publican.
I fast twice in the week, I give tithes of all that I
And the publican, standing afar off, would not lift up so
much as his eyes unto heaven, but smote upon his breast, saying, God be
merciful to me a sinner.
God’s Righteous Judgment:
I tell you, this man went down to his house justified rather
than the other: for every one that exalteth himself shall be abased; and he
that humbleth himself shall be exalted.
Luke 18:9-14 (King James Bible)
“And the crooked tree
is still there, growing stronger and stranger every day.”
_ Tom Waits
Although the author of this quote was criticized, and poked
fun at for being different, as was the publican in the parable that Jesus gave,
the two men were achievers. We find that
being different can work for the individual who are comfortable with
themselves, and most importantly work hard to achieve greatness. In the case
of the publican, who prayed to God for help, many others do the same.
To be an achiever in the face of criticism, one has to stay
focused on their goal. Failure comes when negative thoughts are allowed to
enter into the mind. Avoiding negative
influences while working on a goal, is the best approach to take, in order to become an achiever.
I have been confronted with criticism many times, and told, I
couldn’t reach my goals. My message to those who criticized me was, and
remains, I will never give up!
Some people view my work as strange. Like the author of the quote, I am growing stronger and
stranger every day. I am humble, and prayerful to God daily for his mercy to
For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.
Scriptures: King James Bible

In today’s world, many of us are competing against all odds, while climbing the ladder of success. The competition is very tough and stressful. We have to be willing to make tough sacrifices that will include lots of self-
discipline, while climbing the ladder of success with
lots of others, who want the same things we do - and are willing to compete at any
cost, to gain power and wealth.
For females, it can be a challenge when working with a large
group of males. This is when you find out who you are: Can you compete in a
man’s world? Do you have the stuff it takes to maintain self-worth, and
achievement? Are you hungry enough to take your stand on the same battlefield
in life, and fight for power and wealth, and walk away when the battle is over
with honor and power?
To be a successful competitor, one has to be committed to their goal. The answer to each of the questions above, has
to be YES!
Regardless of gender, one has to be willing to take what belongs and what has been promised, by not backing down and by not giving up. Never be willing to throw in the towel and accept defeat!
"Here is the world.
Beautiful and terrible things will happen. Don't be afraid". ~Frederick Buechner
Character assassination, grudges, jealousy, hate, lies, sexual advances, plots to end another individual's career, or cause someone to lose their job.
If you have worked hard to accomplish your goals, and have invested financial income, spent many hours in class rooms, and training to get an education, and have made many sacrifices toward your career, or a position you hold on your job, competing on the same battlefield of life, while climbing the ladder of success, with others; many of whom are arrogant, greedy, mean, selfish and are uncaring. Some of those same people are without a conscious: Being afraid is not an option for you. You have earned the beautiful things that life offers by staying committed to your goals. Enjoy your success!
Attitude determine success or failure of any career, or whatever one chooses to do.
A positive attitude produces the desire to approach things in a positive manner. It also, shows a positive and pleasant personality, that allows others to feel comfortable in the presence of such an individual. This is the proper attitude, that every individual need to possess when dealing with other individuals in whatever career or business they want to be successful in.
Patience is The Pathway to Opportunity
Patience is the path to opportunities. We gain patience
through prayer and meditation. Within that vein, we never consider ourselves
having failed. We see something greater ahead through the hope within us - that
if we continue pushing forward and never looking back to consider, what if?
why? and listening to negative advice, but trusting in God, who can make all
things happen for our good, VICTORY! is ours.
Entrepreneurs have to use all of the technology
available, to benefit them in their business. Being that the market is very
competitive, entrepreneurs have to be well educated about their products. They
must be prepared to offer the best competitive products to their customers, and
to potential customers as well.
The Foundation a Successful Business is Built Upon
A sound plan
Attitude, is what makes the business either fail or succeed.
How we present ourselves to others, matters. Getting the person to feel
comfortable in our presence, and to become interested in what we are saying,
can help a lot. Even though an individual might not want to do business at the
present time, if you make them feel comfortable, they will more than likely
support your business.
When I spoke with potential insurance clients, I didn't immediately
try to sell them an insurance policy. I wanted to know about them. That gave
them the opportunity to relax, and know that I cared about them. And that I
wasn't trying to make a quick sale. They helped my business, by telling their
family and friends to purchase their insurance from me.
Knowing that we have spiritual help from God, gives us hope
and strength to keep going despite all obstacles, discouragement, and
impossibilities that we face. These challenges comes at us in many different
forms. But, we must know that our strength lies in God.
