WISDOM FOR SUCCESSFUL LIVING
Laws of Financial Success 3
”Let him who has been stealing steal no longer. Rather, let him work, doing something useful with his own hands, so that he may have ……………..’’. – Ephesians 4:28 (Paraphrased)
Financial Success Law number 2:
Start earning an income. The first rung on the ladder to financial freedom is to start earning an income. For you to see your financial goal materialize, you must create a channel through which money can flow to you. This means you must have or create something of value, that someone else is willing to exchange his money for.
Two basic ways through which you can create channels for money to flow to you is to either get a job or start your own business.
If getting a job is what you think will help you fulfill your financial goals, you need to begin by acquiring the skills that your dream job requires. These skills can be acquired through education or training. Enroll in a school, attend relevant training courses, and read books that will help you develop the skills that match the position you desire in your dream job. When you acquire the requisite skills to get your dream job, you place yourself at a vantage point over many other people who want the kind of job you want, but have not exercised the discipline to develop the skills you have developed. This also boosts your self-confidence, because you know that you will be an asset and not a liability to any company that engages your services. After all your preparations, be sure to send your applications to companies and organizations that might require your skills, and be aggressive about it. This basic principle alone can create a good platform for you to start your journey into financial freedom.
