A Key Secret To YOUR Success

Today, I share with you a key secret to YOUR success. Maybe, nobody has ever told you about this secret…because they did not know about it themselves.

Maybe, you have never recognized this secret for yourself…although it has been laying openly before you all your life…waiting for you to recognize it and use it.

Or maybe, somewhere along the way, a teacher actually did tell you about this secret…but perhaps you did not recognize or understand it.  Perhaps it was so contrary to the mentality of the people surrounding you that it did not register with you.  Perhaps you simply did not like the premise of it.  Whatever the case, the net result was that you turned a deaf ear and a blind eye to the secret…you promptly forgot about it…and continued on in your life without it.

Now having said this, if you have read any of my writings, then by the end of this article, you will recognize that this secret has been laced through almost everything I have ever shared with you…and now, it is time for you to fully understand this secret so that you can use it for good: for your own good…for good in your family…and for good in God’s Kingdom.

Today can be a turning point in your life!

However, I should warn you in advance…this secret may at first make you angry…it may go against principles you have believed in for a long time…it may seem like heresy and sacrilege to you…it may contradict the “philosophy” you have built around a narrow list of favorite, nice-sounding scriptures that feel good to you.

But, IF you have spent years (or decades) using your philosophy…and it has not produced the success you want, then I recommend you update your philosophy with this secret.

The secret is summed up well in an old Quaker saying that says: “Pray…but move your feet!


To say it even more strongly, the secret is do not waste time and energy asking God for things that He has given you the ability to create and manifest for yourself.

Realize that God has given you the ability to create and manifest far more than you may have wanted to admit or believe up to this point.

Specifically, instead of sitting around wasting your life away asking God for miracles…instead of languishing in unwanted, unpleasant conditions and circumstances (and perhaps dragging the people you love down with you) while imploring God for a divine intervention…just GO AHEAD and create and manifest goodness WHILE you are praying for God’s help.

How do you create and manifest goodness?

You devote your time and energy towards learning and working…while your mindset, drive, focus, and commitment is directed towards providing benefit and value to other people.

Instead of praying for miracles from God…or from other people…direct your prayers towards asking for God’s help behind-the-scenes…in those areas that are outside of what you can do, affect, or impact…while you do your part of learning and working smartly on the front-scenes.

And importantly, this behind-the-scenes part that is outside of what you can do, impact, and affect is FAR SMALLER than what the typical person lazily wants it to be.

It is common for a person to want God’s part to be the large, hard part…and their part…the part they are responsible for…to be a TINY, SIMPLE, EASY, NO-EFFORT-REQUIRED part…and that is NOT how success is…or how success works.

Bluntly, too many people want their success to come to them as a result of God’s divine, miraculous intervention…or as a result of some wealthy benefactor giving them a large money-gift…or as a result of winning some lottery…AND SUCCESS NEVER, EVER COMES IN ANY OF THESE WAYS!

Even if a person is able to work up a heart-throbbing story and thereby finagle a money-gift from someone…or even if a person happens to get lucky and win a large lottery…it will not be long until that person is in worse circumstances and conditions than they were in before they received the gift or winning.

Now, let’s pause here…you may well be popping in anger…you may well be rejecting what I am saying…because it is not how you want the world to be…because it is not how you want life to work…because it is not how you want God to be towards you…because you want God to align with your model…instead of you aligning with God’s model.  But always remember: how things really are…and how things really work…has nothing to do with how we “wish” things would be.

As an adult, you KNOW that the “idyllic philosophy” that a child exhibits in his or her “pretend play” simply does not correlate to success in the real world.

Pretending to be a doctor…or an astronaut…or a sports star…or a movie star…or any other high-performance person of success is very, very different from putting forth the learning and work necessary to actually BECOME such a person.

And yet, too many adults go through their adult life “wanting” their “idyllic philosophy”…their “pretend play”…to produce success for them…BUT IT DOES NOT…and the sooner they accept that…and update their philosophy to a grown-up philosophy…the sooner they can get to the success they want…and that God wants for them too.

Back to the child’s play…you will NEVER hear a young child say, “I want to be a low-paid, low-success person when I grow up.”  No child wants to be a trash-hauler, floor-sweeper, dish-washer, and so on. What every child wants is to be something big, important, meaningful, significant, and successful.

That is what God wants you to be too. In fact, did not Jesus tell us in Matthew 18:3, “Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven“?

But again, while child-like faith and child-like desires are good…a childish philosophy DOES NOT produce the success we all want to enjoy in life. Similarly, a beggarly philosophy DOES NOT produce this success either.

Now, I can hear some of you rejecting what I am saying…I can hear some of you quoting scriptures such as Matthew 18:19, John 14:14, John 16:23, and so on that tell us we can simply ask and whatever we want will be given to us…but YOUR OWN experience has taught you that these scriptures do not work in this way…which is confirmed by James 4:3, “Ye ask, and receive not, because ye ask amiss“.

So, let your anger go…let your resistance go…and let’s look at some scriptures that tell us the truth of this secret I am telling you about…

Agree with thine adversary quickly, whiles thou are in the way with him; lest at any time the adversary deliver thee to the judge, and the judge deliver thee to the officer, and thou be cast into prison. Verily I say unto thee, Thou shalt by no means come out thence, till thou hast paid the uttermost farthing.” Matthew 5:25-26

Notice what this pair of verses TELLS you.

Notice that this pair of verses makes it clear that IF you end up in trouble, God is NOT going to bail you out…that you are in fact on your own and you are going to have to work yourself out of your mess without God’s help.

Now, why is this?


But, doesn’t God love us?“, you argue. “Surely, if God loves us, He will help us get out of trouble, right?

Well, you have to understand that love and consequences are two totally different things…and love does not excuse a person from consequences!  In fact, true love administers consequences so that the beloved will learn and work properly.

Bluntly, this scripture is TELLING us PLAINLY that we should NOT expect or count on God to miraculously deliver us out of our SELF-INFLICTED troubles, problems, and messes…especially when the problems could have been avoided by learning and effort on our part.

Now, I grant you, God sometimes does deliver people.  In His great mercy and grace, He sometimes delivers people in spite of their foolishness and ignorance. But, to live life EXPECTING God’s miraculous deliverance out of self-inflicted problems will soon prove to be foolhardy…as proven by the corresponding misery and suffering such a person gets to live in.

Again, we see the secret…God expects YOU to do for yourself those things that you CAN and SHOULD do. And, if you do not, then YOU will pay the price and suffer the consequences.

If God has bailed you out of self-inflicted troubles, problems, and messes, then you should realize that was pure mercy and grace…AND…you should realize that God will NOT continue to bail you out…because He has already given you mercy and grace…He has already given you the opportunity to LEARN what you needed to learn…He has already given you the opportunity to do things PROPERLY and CORRECTLY…and if you did not learn what you should have learned from your past experiences…and if you did not use the opportunities to MAKE SURE YOU NEVER AGAIN MADE THE SAME KIND OF MISTAKES…then you can reliably count on the fact that you are on your own…and you ARE going to pay the “uttermost farthing” to get YOURSELF out of your mess.

The other thing these verses speak to…that we all know…is that life can at times be quite “adversarial”. It does not matter if you are the world’s poorest person…or the world’s richest person…or anywhere in between…life IS going to throw adversity at you. That is part of the curse that we inherited from Adam. But, adversity or not, there is always something YOU can do…there is always something that needs to be done by YOU…WHILE you are praying and asking God for help.

Now we come to the next scripture that pertains to this secret…

My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee“. Hosea 4:6

It really is the most amazing thing…people will eagerly learn about things that have no meaning, benefit, or value…and at the same time, they will resist learning meaningful, important, beneficial things with all of their being.

They will diligently STUDY the latest sports stats…or the latest celebrity trends…but try to get them to read a book or listen to an audio program that will give them some valuable knowledge and they will resist, reject, and procrastinate…until ultimately the net effect is that they refuse to read or listen to anything that will give them knowledge.

They will invest spectacular amounts of time and energy towards learning how to work and manipulate charity systems and subsidy programs…but try to get them to learn about how to provide value and benefit to other people…well, you will find that it is a major up-hill battle because they are not very interested in that…and they have loads of excuses besides.

By the way…here is a side note for you to consider: successful people are constantly amazed at how HARD unsuccessful people “work” at being…and remaining…unsuccessful.

Unsuccessful people consistently work FAR HARDER…and SUFFER FAR MORE…in order to get their meager portion out of life…than the successful person ever had to work or suffer in order to create and manifest success.

But, this should not be surprising I guess…after all, the Bible tells us in Proverbs 13:15, “the way of transgressors is hard.”

Who is the transgressor? It is the person who is unwilling to acquire and apply WISDOM, KNOWLEDGE, and UNDERSTANDING…the very items that the ENTIRE Bible directs us to seek, acquire, and apply.

So, understand clearly that if we reject knowledge, then God TELLS us PLAINLY that He will reject us too.

In short, people who reject learning…and who refuse wisdom, knowledge, and understanding…are rejecting and refusing success.

That brings us to this point: ALL successful people are LEARNERS! No exceptions!

But wait!“, you argue. “What about those people who did not finish high-school or college and yet they became millionaires or billionaires?

Well, I challenge you to dig into the details of their back-story…and you will infallibly find that the person was a diligent, dedicated, devoted, devout LEARNER.

Perhaps the person had to drop out of school for survival reasons. Abraham Lincoln is an example of this kind of person. But, after Abe’s long day of working to survive, history reports that his evenings were filled with reading, study, and learning. Moreover, history reports that Abe literally read books while he walked to work day by day. Abe came from the poorest of circumstances…lost his mother at a young age…but he was a LEARNER…and ultimately, he became one of the greatest…if not THE greatest…President the United States has ever had.

Or, perhaps the person dropped out of college because the learning pace was too slow or the learning depth was too shallow…and the person realized that they could learn much faster or more thoroughly on their own. Perhaps the person recognized that a college environment was just slowing him or her down from doing important things. Bill Gates of Microsoft fame is a great example of this kind of person.

Again…feel free to dig into the back-story of ANY truly successful person and you will infallibly find that they are (or were) SERIOUS LEARNERS!

Now, I DO believe in prayer…the Bible tells us to pray always…and I DO believe in miracles.

IF, like Daniel, you find yourself being thrown into a Den of lions…and there was nothing you could have done to prevent it short of denying Christ…then in that case, you can absolutely expect and depend upon God to provide a miracle.

But, outside of situations like this, when you find yourself receiving a miracle…you better realize that it is one of two things. One, it may be that God is giving you mercy and grace…and you better learn what you need to learn…and change or do whatever you need to change or do…so that you never again put yourself in a bad situation like the one God just delivered you out of…because if you do, you will most likely find yourself “on your own”. Two, it may be that God…in His goodness and generousness…is simply giving you a gift…which you should receive with thanksgiving and praise…while continuing your learning and working to provide value…without depending upon any additional miraculous gifts.

Ironically, the less you depend upon miracles, and the more you devote yourself to learning and working, the more “miracles” will happen in your life.

To summarize, do not waste time and energy asking God for things that He has given you the ability to create and manifest for yourself. Instead, devote your time and energy towards learning and working…while your mindset, drive, focus, and commitment is directed towards providing benefit and value to other people…and in doing so, you will create and manifest success for yourself, those you love, and God’s Kingdom.

One last point related to this secret I am sharing with you…

Unsuccessful people LOVE to proclaim that successful people obtained their success by being greedy liars, deceivers, and cheaters. However, prevailing reality does not support this proclamation.

Similarly, poor people LOVE to proclaim that the rich obtained their wealth by robbing the poor. But again, prevailing reality does not support this proclamation.

Certainly, there has been…and there always will be…people who are greedy liars, deceivers, and cheaters…but there are just as many or more of these kinds of people in the unsuccessful ranks of life as there are in the successful ranks.

Certainly, there have been wealthy individuals who took advantage of poor people…but there continues to be FAR MORE cases of poor people taking advantage of other poor people…than there has ever been of rich people taking advantage of poor people.

Similarly, there continues to be FAR MORE cases of poor people stealing from and cheating their employers than there has ever been of employers stealing from and cheating their employees.

The prevailing reality is that success stems from providing value, service, and benefit to other people. And, where there is a lack of success, there is a corresponding lack of value, service, and benefit provision.

Who are the successful people who have plenty of money?

The answer is easy…they are the people who are behind the many “brands” that we appreciate, value, and enjoy in our regular lives.

Why do we appreciate, value, and enjoy certain “brands”?

It is because they provide benefit in our lives. These “brands” are the best products…the highest levels of service…the grounds of trust and loyalty…the means by which life is made better, easier, and more enjoyable.

How did these “brands”…that we continue to GIVE our money to…come to mean so much to us?

Was it just luck? Was it just happenstance? Was it due to devious misconduct? NO it was NOT!

The success and wealth of these “brands” came as a result of certain people APPLYING and DEVOTING themselves to LEARNING and WORKING to provide value, service, and benefit to other people.

Search the internet…scan the business magazines…look for the “top brands”…and then dig into the back-story of how those brands came into being…and how they progressed. Today, many of them are huge, multi-million, or even multi-billion dollar businesses…but at the beginning, EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THESE BRANDS was nothing more than an idea in some man or woman’s mind…and that man or woman applied his or her self to LEARNING and WORKING to create and manifest that idea into the thing of value, service, and benefit to other people that we see today.

They did it…and you CAN do it to…IF you APPLY and DEVOTE yourself to LEARNING and WORKING like they did!

You don’t need a killer idea. You don’t need a giant financial grub-stake. You just need to apply and devote yourself to learning and working…while holding your focus upon finding some small way to provide value, service, and benefit to others. In time, you may well find yourself in the list of wealthy “brand” creators and owners…enjoying all the success that God meant for you to have and enjoy all along. He was just waiting on you to apply and devote yourself to learning and working.

The Path To Success

The Bible is a God-given book that teaches us the way to salvation…we know that. But, it is also the greatest book ever written about success, happiness, peace, and well-being. Bizarrely, instead of being people’s most-read, first-accessed book, it is typically the book people read least and access last.

Experience and observation has proven to me that there is no faster way to improve one’s circumstances and conditions in life than to get into the Word of God and accept, absorb, embrace, and apply the truths, mindsets, strategies, tactics, beliefs, and perspectives that it reveals.

Between the things God has endowed us with innately…and His Holy Word the Bible…God has given us everything we need to succeed. And, this success…OUR success…is totally free.

In other words, God has ALREADY GIVEN success to us. All we have to do to PROGRESSIVELY RECEIVE this God-given success is study the Bible…grasp the instructions it contains…think, believe, accept, learn, and work in harmony with what it reveals…and incredible, uniquely-personalized success in every area of our life is infallibly ours…complements of God Himself.

Amazingly, too many individuals REJECT the success that God has for them. They snub, rebuff, disregard, “brush-off”, and “turn up their nose” at God’s path to success. They don’t want God’s success for them…they want SOMEONE ELSE to GIVE them success. So, these individuals go seek, push, plead, and beg for “gifts” from other people…thinking that IF they can just get a certain specific “gift” from other people, THEN they will finally be able to move into the success they want to enjoy.

But God…in His amazing love…even for individuals who reject His plan and path of success for them…will FOR A TIME actually BLOCK these individuals from receiving “gifts” from other people. These individuals seek, push, plead, and beg for “gifts” from other people…and in one way or another, God thwarts and prevents them from actually being able to receive those “gifts”. In other words, FOR A TIME, God will see to it that these individuals DO NOT get the very “gifts” they think they want…and that they are “praying” for.

Perhaps you have even experienced this yourself. Perhaps you have went asking for “gifts” from other people…all while “praying” that God would move these people to give you the “gifts” you wanted from them…but the gift never materialized. Well Hallelujah…you just got BLOCKED by God’s goodness and mercy TO YOU!

God does not want you seeking “gifts” from other people because THAT is NOT what is best for YOU! God does NOT want you seeking FALSE-SUCCESS from other people. God wants you to receive the TRUE-SUCCESS that He has for you.

Think about what I am saying to you in these terms…

Would you seek salvation from someone else…instead of from God through Jesus Christ?

Well, if you are a Christian, and if you know anything at all about God, your answer is, “Of course not!” You know that the first and greatest commandment is that you are to have no other gods before you (Exodus 20:3, Matthew 22:36-40). You know that there is no other source for salvation (Acts 4:12). You know that God wants you to work out your own salvation between you and Him (Philippians 2:12). In short, you know that God does not want you seeking salvation from anyone else except Him!

And GET THIS…it is exactly the same with your success. God does not want you seeking success and well-being from other people. God wants you seeking success and well-being from Him…namely, by being in right-relationship and by growing in right-operation with Him according to His laws, commandments, and principles.

As you move into right-relationship with God…and as you grow in right-operation with God…you will find that your success will invariably involve YOU providing certain value, benefit, and service TO OTHER people…as it naturally SHOULD…because this is God’s second great commandment (Mark 12:31) to us.

Now, why is that God specifically wants you seeking success only from Him? It is because success that has been worked out between you and God is REAL, ENDURING, SUSTAINABLE success. In contrast, false-success “gifts” received from other people merely put you in a slavish, weak, unpleasant, disagreeable position…and that is NOT the position that God wants you in. God does not want His people “being the tail” (Deuteronomy 28:43-44). God wants His people to “be the head” (Deuteronomy 28:13).

In Joshua chapter 9, we can read about a group of people (the Gibeonites) who sought their “success” from other people (the Israelites)…and verse 23 gives us the pronouncement that came as a result: “Now therefore, ye are cursed, and there shall none of you be freed from being bondmen, and hewers of wood and drawers of water“.

By seeking their success from other people instead of from God directly, these people cursed themselves to a menial life of misery…and this PRINCIPLE is just as true today as it was back in the time of Joshua.

This principle is expressed all through the Bible in a multitude of ways and through a multitude of stories. Perhaps the bluntest and plainest expression of it is where God says to us: “Thus saith the Lord; Cursed be the man that trusteth in man, and maketh flesh his arm, and whose heart departeth from the Lord.” Jeremiah 17:5

The preceding verse logically takes us to this verse: “For such as be blessed of [God] shall inherit the earth; and they that be cursed of him shall be cut off.” Psalms 37:22

What does it mean to be “cut off”? Well, there are both spiritual and natural aspects…but with regard to the natural, it means, “thou shalt not prosper in thy ways: and thou shalt be only oppressed and spoiled evermore” (Deuteronomy 28:29).

If you want to further explore the principle of seeking success from God only, I particularly recommend that you take a look at Isaiah 30:1-3 and Isaiah 31:1-3.

Now, going back to the phrase, “for a time” that I emphasized above…an individual CAN persist in ignoring the principle…an individual CAN continue rejecting God’s model…an individual CAN push forward with what they personally want…until God acquiesces to their “stubbornness and hardness of heart” and releases them…and turns them over to the misery, loss, and destruction that lies at the end of what they think they want.

Take a closer look at any person who has spent years seeking false-success “gifts” from other people…and you will see exactly what I mean…you will see someone who is clearly “the tail”. It was NEVER what God wanted or intended for them…but it is what they have “insisted” upon for their own self.

The kind of individual I am talking about here is operating under the false-belief…the illusion…that IF someone would just give them a certain-sized “gift”, THEN everything would be okay…THEN life would be good for them…THEN they could “get on their feet”…THEN they could FINALLY enjoy life…THEN they could do some particular ministry.

But, what such a person has FAILED TO LEARN FROM THEIR OWN PRIOR EXPERIENCES is that false-success “gifts” do not EVER produce true-success.

Actually, it would not matter how big of a “gift” such an individual was given…they could be given a “gift” that was 10 times bigger than what they “thought” they needed/wanted…and in a very short time, they would be in a situation that was an even worse mess with even bigger problems…than the situation they were in before they received the “gift”.

As the Bible tells us, “Except the LORD build the house, they labour in vain that build it” (Psalms 127:1). In other words, you cannot succeed by going down any other path except God’s path for you. To try to succeed on some other path that excludes God…or that is outside of God…is foolishness.  Any path except God’s path is one sure to lead to failure.

This brings us full-circle back to the importance of the Bible. Consider these prophetic words spoken by men who failed to understand their own words: “But this people who knoweth not the law are cursed.” John 7:49

Let us make sure that we are regular partakers of God’s Word…let us make sure that we accept, absorb, embrace, and apply the truths, mindsets, strategies, tactics, beliefs, and perspectives that God specifically reveals to us in His Word…so that we can be blessed rather than cursed.

Also, remember that the enemy of your soul and your life is come “to steal, and to kill, and to destroy” (John 10:10)…so, IF satan can distract you from absorbing God’s Word to you in the Bible…IF he can convince you that the Bible is not important or relevant to you…or, IF he can get you to postpone embracing the Bible until a later time…then he has effectively defeated you and blocked you from the success that you want and that God wants you to have.

My advice is that you decide to succeed…by becoming a living expression of God’s spirit and God’s blessings…which is accomplished by you becoming a student and an implementer of God’s Word.

Also, remember that it does not matter if a person does not know the Word of God…or if they just ignore and reject it. Either way, a person gets to suffer the consequences of not receiving what is freely available to them. God’s Word is freely available to us…and therefore, we are not excused from the consequences of not living His Word. Whether there is an ignorance of God’s Word…or a rebellion against God’s Word…either way effectively produces failure spiritually and naturally.

The Prosperity And Increase Principle

Do you realize that the principle for prosperity and increase is expressed repeatedly throughout the entire Bible?

And yet, this principle still remains hidden to 95% of the human population.

So, knowing that this principle is freely available to all, why do so few people know about it?

It is because 95% of the human population has a certain mindset…

• They want somebody else to give to them.

• They want somebody else to do for them.

• They want somebody else to raise them up to a higher level.

• They want whatever it is that they want without regard to the long-term ramifications or consequences.

• Their lusts, passions, and desires for notoriety, recognition, prestige, power, etc. drive their every thought and action.

This mindset causes them to be BLIND to the principle for prosperity and increase.

Would you like to know what the principle is?

Here is one Biblical instance of it: “yet have I made myself servant unto all, that I might gain the more“. 1 Corinthians 9:19

There it is…that’s it…and 95% of the world resists it and rejects it because it is contrary to what their “flesh” wants. They want somebody else serving them…and they DO NOT want to serve somebody else.

Here is another Biblical instance of the principle: “by love serve one another“. Galatians 5:13

So, the principle for prosperity and increase is simply this:

You can be as rich as you want to be if you will serve enough people in a way they want you to serve them.

But again, this is backwards from how 95% of the world thinks. The 95% think, “I will help and serve others AFTER I am rich.

Actually, their more truthful line of thinking goes like this, “I wish somebody would make me rich…I wish I could win a big lottery…I wish I could find a lost suitcase filled with millions…and if I could have this miraculous stroke of good fortune, THEN I would be willing to do a few nice things for other “disadvantaged” people (who are thinking and operating just like I currently am).”

That is backwards thinking my friend. You will get rich by FIRST helping and serving others.

Now generally speaking, once a person from the 95% crowd understands and acknowledges this principle, they then SHUT THEIR SELF DOWN with a line of thinking that goes something like this: “I don’t know if I have what it takes…I don’t know if I could do it…what if I can’t do it…etc.

Well, consider Galatians 5:6, “FAITH which WORKETH by LOVE“.

The point is, have some faith in God. Have some faith in how marvelously God created you. Start caring about OTHER people more and yourself LESS…start loving people MORE so that you get the opportunity to serve them.

And now, if a person from the 95% crowd makes it this far, then they SHUT THEIR SELF DOWN AGAIN with another line of thinking that goes something like this: “I just don’t know what to do…

Well, in what way do people turn to you for help, assistance, advice, guidance, or support?

What kind of problem do people bring to you for help with?

Whatever the answer is, THAT is what you want to ramp up to a bigger scale so that you can serve even more people.

And, if nobody ever comes to you for any kind of help, then that means you need to do some personal learning, studying, and developing so that you can gain some skills and expertise that is useful to other people…and as you gain this skill and expertise, people will begin showing up asking you for help.

How To Become Great

God has a certain wisdom that’s been stirring in your heart for a while…

Allow me to confirm that wisdom for you…

It’s NOT how much you have that makes you happy. And yet, so many people spend huge amounts of time and energy wishing they had more.

It’s NOT how much you get that satisfies. And yet, so many people spend huge amounts of time and energy wishing they could get more.

It’s NOT status and notoriety that fulfills. And yet, so many people spend huge amounts of time and energy wishing they were at a higher level and that more people’s attention was upon them.

It’s NOT having people look up to you with envy that brings joy. And yet, so many people spend huge amounts of time and energy wishing they were in a place of success that other people would envy.

And,  God’s wisdom stirring in your heart tells you plainly that all this “wishing” does you no good…and is in fact a block to you receiving your good.

So you ask: “What is it that does delight my soul?

And again, God’s wisdom in your heart reveals the answer…

It’s what you DO…that in some way makes the world a better place for certain people…and that in some way points those people to Jesus Christ.

You “know” all of this…because it’s God’s wisdom that’s stirring in your heart.

And in your desire to do good, you create much frustration for yourself that really is unnecessary.  Your carnal self rises up…overriding your spiritual self…

…and wants to do your good at a HUGE level…at a level where you have much…where you get much…where you have much status and notoriety…where people look at you with envy…

…and because you are at a level that seems to you to be rather humble and perhaps even meager…you feel very unhappy and frustrated.

But God, in His love and care for you…stirs again His wisdom in your heart…and reminds you…

All is well and all grows better.

Everything is right on time and right on pace with God’s perfect plan for YOUR life.

While it may be true that certain things don’t “feel” all that great right now…”faith” lets you know that God is creating and orchestrating great good RIGHT NOW out of your PRESENT circumstances and conditions.  Time will inevitably prove that your “faith” was the REAL truth.

God’s wisdom in your heart reminds you of Christ’s words in Matthew 25:  “thou hast been faithful over a FEW things,  I WILL MAKE THEE ruler over many things“.

And as you think about these words from Christ to you…you can realize that there’s nothing for you to be fretting about…there’s nothing to be worried about…there’s nothing to be upset or frustrated about.

All you have to do is this: DO whatever you can…right where you are at…with whatever resources you have…to make the world a better place for just one person…and while you are doing that, find some way point to point that person to Jesus Christ…and then do that again for another person…and another…

Soon enough, you WILL look around and find that GOD HAS MADE THEE a RULER over MANY THINGS!

Isn’t it a RELIEF to know that God will do the “heavy lifting” of “making” you great in His Kingdom?

God’s Gift That Gives You Everything You Want

Are you aware that God has given you a special gift that has unfathomable potential?

Do you realize this gift God has given you is everything you need to get and enjoy all that you want to get and enjoy…this gift is everything you need to be able to help the people God wants you to help?

Did you know that when you accept and embrace this gift it brings you unending joy, happiness, and satisfaction?

Oddly enough, there are some people who have not accepted this gift from God…some have even went so far as to refuse this gift.

What is this gift I’m speaking of?

The gift of work…the gift of achieving and accomplishing…the gift of producing and providing.

Now, consider this…

Anything that a wealthy person does to create wealth a non-wealthy person can do too.

Anything that a person with money is doing to create money…well, a person without money could do the same thing to create money too.

But, they don’t.

It has to do with their perspective, their focus, their attention…and their willingness.

For example, wealthy people are concerned about being valuable…about creating and delivering value to other people.

That’s something that anyone can do.

But, non-wealthy people aren’t concerned about value…they’re concerned about just getting by. Or, they’re concerned about WHO is going to GIVE them what they want…and those are the people who are really suffering financially.

Wealthy people TALK to other people to FIND OUT what they would pay money for.

That’s something that anyone can do.

Wealthy people take what they LEARN from people and they creatively come up with a way to PROVIDE people with what they will pay for.

That’s something that anyone can do.

Wealthy people MARKET and SELL whatever it is that they’ve come up with that people want and will pay for.

That’s something that anyone can do.

Really, it is!

Right now, if you really put your mind to it, you could begin doing all of these things that wealthy people do. And, if you wanted to be smart about it, you could go to your local library, check out an armload of books and in a week or two, you’d have enough knowledge on these subjects to get started.

Literally, one to two weeks of study and research is all you need…the rest of what you need to learn you can learn AFTER you GET STARTED.

Getting started…that too is something that anyone can do.

But only successful, wealthy people actually do.

It’s interesting…successful, wealthy people became that way because they were willing to get started right where they were at with whatever resources they had. And, if you track back to the roots of MOST successful, wealthy people you’ll invariably find that that “where they were at” wasn’t exactly the greatest of circumstances…and the “resources they had” were quite limited…and THEY STARTED ANYWAY.

They started SMALL and through the GIFT OF WORK, their circumstances improved and their resources increased.

But strangely, non-wealthy people don’t want to start small. They want somebody to GIVE them several million dollars so they can start BIG!

Non-wealthy people want to go from a non-existent enterprise to an internationally recognized enterprise…they want to go from no resources to unlimited resources…and they want this to happen almost instantly…without any pain, embarrassment, or abasement on their part.

Thousands and thousands of people have told me that God called them to a ministry…and even though God “called” them, they are ready to give up and abandon their calling because they don’t know how to go from nothing to international…they don’t know how to go from nothing to unlimited resources…so they do little to nothing…except complain to people and God about how God called them but He won’t give them the resources they need…

But, He did! He already gave you what you needed. He gave you…

The gift of work!

STARTING HUGE is NOT God’s model of ministry or business. Go read your Bible…you’ll find that God’s model is ALWAYS about starting SMALL.

God’s model is always about YOU starting small…humbling yourself down…abasing yourself…so that God can make you great.

It’s in your Bible…from front to back!

We could use any great person from the Bible but let’s use King David. God “called” him to be King of Israel…David was literally anointed by God’s prophet to be the King of Israel and yet it was years before he actually reached that position. And, before he reached that position, the Bible recounts what a lowly, humble, and in several cases humiliating and embarrassing lifestyle David lived.

How many people do you know that are willing to humble themselves down to a small and lowly lifestyle so that God can bless and exalt them?

What about you?

There’s more…

In the case of David, the whole time he was small and lowly, he was busy WORKING, doing the best that he knew how to do before God and man.

This mindset that David had is revealed to us by his son in Ecclesiastes 2:14… “The wise man’s eyes are in his head“.

In other words, a wise person…a successful person isn’t looking around at what’s OUTSIDE of them and letting what’s OUTSIDE of them dictate what they can or cannot do. Rather, they are using their IMAGINATION to “see” good things and then they WORK accordingly to the best of their ability.

Maybe, that’s a shift in perspective that you need to make?

The gift of God…

Everything you want is dependent upon YOU embracing this gift.

All your hopes and dreams…

Ecclesiastes 5:3 says, “For a dream cometh through the multitude of business [much work]

Notice, the Bible doesn’t say your dreams will come to you through some person giving you a gift out of their bounty.

A person can continue to want someone else to give them their good…a person can keep looping on that strategy…but I don’t advise that approach because it only serves to keep your good pushed away from you. What brings your good to you is WORK.

But, don’t take my advice…take God’s…

Ecclesiastes 3:13 tells us… “that every man should…enjoy the good of all his labour, it is the gift of God.

What “good” is your labor producing?

Consider that question carefully because all the good that which you wish to enjoy is dependent upon YOUR labor.

Work…it’s God’s gift…it’s God’s design…it’s God’s model…

Ecclesiastes 2:24 says, “There is nothing better for a man, than…that he should make his soul enjoy good in his labour. This also I saw, that it was from the hand of God.

Would you like for someone to give you money?

There was a certain man who was asking for money.

He really was in a difficult predicament. Circumstances and conditions were hard for him.

They had been for a long, long time.

No relief was in site.

And right now, all he wanted was for some one to give him some money.

THAT would make his situation better, he believed.

You can read more about this man in Acts Chapter 3 and what you’ll find out is that…

Money WAS NOT what he needed.

Oh sure, he could have easily found a way to spend and dispose of whatever money was given to him – but money wasn’t what he needed the most.

What he needed was a HEALING.

If you’ll receive it…

If you really want help…

If you genuinely want to turn your affairs around for the better…

You don’t need money either. What you need is a healing…a healing in the area of money beliefs and perspectives…a healing in your mindset about money…a healing in the way you want to “get” money.

You need a healing from that socialistic mindset that wants someone else to “give” you money…to “bail” you out of your problems…your troubles…your conditions and circumstances…

Which is the same thing as saying you want someone to RELIEVE you from the CONSEQUENCES of your choices…your perspectives…your beliefs…your attitude…your actions and inactions…ALL OF WHICH WOULD PUT YOU RIGHT BACK INTO THE SAME SITUATION YOU ARE IN RIGHT NOW EVEN IF SOMEONE DID “GIVE” YOU MONEY.

In fact, it’s not at all unusual for people who have been “gifted” bailout money to end up in conditions and circumstances that are WORSE than the ones they are in right now.

Here is your healing if you really want it…

Money is compensation for value and service rendered.

Provide little value or service and receive little money.

Provide much value or service and receive much money.

But, the money isn’t what’s important.

What’s important is the benefit that your value and service brings to people’s lives.

In providing value and service, you’re HELPING people.

By helping people, you FIT IN with God’s design and plan for mankind.

Yesterday, a friend reminded me of when we were boys…

The widow women we knew didn’t sit around down and out and poor.

Instead, they WORKED!

One of them made handmade quilts that were of such excellent craftsmanship and design that they were SOLD before she could finish them…and in fact, she had a back-list of requests that constantly kept her several months “behind”.

Another one made and delivered mouthwatering homemade pies, cakes, and desserts for families that didn’t have time to make their own. And, they sure beat the stale, bland, chemical-laden options that were available at the grocery store.

Yet another one took the little bit of money her deceased husband left her and built a greenhouse which she soon leveraged into a booming year-around business of providing families with FRESH, HEALTHY vegetables that were of better quality than what a person could get at any local grocery store.

I guess you could say that people did give these widow-women money…and people were happy to give it to them…because they were getting something of value back.

These widow-women didn’t lack for money. In fact, they hired young men and women in the church so that even more money was flowing to and through them.

What about you?

What do you have to give to people for money besides a bunch of empty, windy promises of “I’ll pay you back when…”

You may be way “upside down”…you may be way in debt…with huge bills staring you in the face.

It doesn’t matter.

All that matters is that you find some way to provide value and service to people…

And, that you find a way PRONTO!

Ask God in prayer what’s the best way for you right now.

It may be something that you only do for a while. It may be something you do for the rest of your life. Just keep your focus on providing value and service and you’ll end up doing the right things. God will lead you in the right direction if you’ll let him (Isaiah 49:18).

Tell those that you owe what you’re doing to turn things around for yourself…so that you can both pay them off plus accrued interest AND create a better life for yourself and your family.

They’ll work with you. If they see that you’re genuinely working at doing something to provide value and service they’ll carry you.

It’s when they see you sitting around wanting something for nothing that they become unwilling to work with you.

Quit wanting money.

Be a searcher, seeker, and implementer of ways to provide value or service.

Provide it in whatever way you can.

Provide it in such a way that there’s something REMARKABLE, SPETACULAR, INCREDIBLE, or AMAZING about it.

It really is as simple as this. The “hard” part is actually doing the WORK. The “hard” part is overcoming your “fear of failure” and your “fear of people”. The “hard” part overcoming your “fear of rejection” and going ahead and stepping out into the world of people and offering your value to them.

Now, it may take some time.

That’s ok. The time was going to pass anyway.

Undoubtedly, there are certain hardships, mishaps, or “disadvantages” in your past. Maybe, you’ve brought them forward with you into your present.

That’s good. Those “disadvantages” contain your unique advantage so that you can provide value in a way that’s remarkable and special. Besides, every other person who’s ever “made it” had their own set of “disadvantages” that they got past just like you can.

There will be failures and setbacks along the way.

That’s ok. Don’t worry about them. They don’t define you. They aren’t the “end”. They are merely “educational devices” so that you learn what you need to learn. This is God’s way of directing you into providing the precise, specific value that people really want.

There will be times when it “seems” like nothing is working.

That’s when you maintain your Faith in God and REFINE your ideas about serving and providing value to people. As you continue doing the WORK of your “part”, God will do His part behind the scenes. If you don’t quit and give up, you’ll soon enough see that is true.

Your life will never be the same.

You’ll never “want” money again.

One more really important thing…

Watch out for the people who take it upon themselves to tell you this won’t work for you. Oh, they’ll have their “proof”. They’ll have all these “horror” stories where “someone” they know tried to step out and be a provider of value and “lost” everything. (Notice how it’s usually someone else as most of these nay-sayers have never had the courage, faith, and trust in God to actually try anything for themselves.)

Watch out for these kinds of people lest you join their ranks of those who are AFRAID to go do the WORK and you waste your life away having never accomplished or achieved anything meaningful.

But, you ask, who’s really right? Me or “them”?

Look to your Bible for your answer.

Can you find anywhere in the Bible where it tells you that you’ll “lose everything” if you strive to provide greater value (LOVE) to people?


Is there any place in your Bible that tells you God will forsake you and abandon you if you’re genuinely serving Him and loving (SERVING) people?


Well, there’s your answer.

But of course, if your FAITH is that you’ll fail and lose all…well, then you have obligated God to give you that.

But, if your FAITH is that you’ll do your best to provide value and God will take care of everything else…well, God will do that for you too.

Opportunities Everywhere – But Only The Wealthy See Them…

If you’ve read my FREE eBook, “The Philosophy of the Happy, Healthy, and Wealthy“, you might remember that I stated there’s a reason the rich are getting richer and the poor are getting poorer.

Hold that thought in mind…

It’s been suggested time and again by people of a certain mindset that money should be taken from wealthy people and “redistributed” to the poor.

And, when the wealthy hear this, they always chuckle to themselves because they know that even if something like that did happen, it would only be a matter of a few years until the money “redistributed” itself right back into their wallets and bank accounts.

How can this be?

Actually, it’s rather simple…the “normal” person…the proverbial 95% of people think primarily in terms of what they WANT.

They’re always wanting something…these are the people who LITERALLY spend their entire life dwelling upon some new thing they want, lusting after what they don’t have.

To these people money is nothing more than a means to get something they want and they forever want more money so they can GET more stuff.

They are SELF-INTERESTED CONSUMERS. Their vision, perspective, and awareness RARELY opens up to anything outside of themselves.

The other 5% of people…the wealthy minority…well, they want more money and more stuff too…but that’s not what they think about the most…what the wealthy think about primarily is…

“How can I and how WILL I provide INCREASED SERVICE and VALUE to a select segment of people so that I am duly rewarded and compensated for that increased service and value?”

To people who think primarily in this way, money is a means to provide increased service and value to an increasingly larger segment of people so that their rewards and compensation can be increased as well.


Here’s what you must realize…


And so, even if some government agency took the money away from the providers, the consumers would literally hand it right back over to the providers.

Do you understand that?

Good…because your wealth depends upon you understanding that.

In fact, pause right here and ask yourself, “Do I primarily think about consuming or providing? Which way do I mostly think about using money?

Now, this brings us to why the poor think there is a scarcity of opportunity while the wealthy see opportunity everywhere.

For those people in the 95% group, they’re thinking primarily about what they WANT…

Which leads them to thinking about how to GET more money so that they can GET what they want…

But all they can see is that wealthy people have “all” the money and they don’t know how to “get” the wealthy to “let go” and “share” some of their money with them…

And so, it appears to 95% of people that there is a scarcity of opportunity.

In contrast, those people in the 5% group, they’re asking themselves how they will provide increased service and value and get rewarded for it.

And so, they look around at what other people are wanting…

They look around at all the places where money is being spent…

And they ask themselves questions like, “Given what’s wanted and what’s being bought and sold in this specific situation:

1. How could I create or buy the supplies, raw materials, or resources that are required cheaper than what they currently cost?

2. How could I sell more of the service or product to more people faster or more conveniently?

3. How could I enhance the value of the service or product so that it can be sold at a higher price?

As you well know, it’s not hard to find inefficiencies and waste…

It’s not hard to find opportunities for improvement…

And so, the wealthy LITERALLY see OPPORTUNITIES EVERYWHERE. They see so many opportunities that their biggest challenge is deciding which opportunities they want to take advantage of and which one’s they should let pass on by.

And, the way they decide is by comparing each opportunity to their purpose in life, to the potential for reward and compensation, to the effort and energy required, and the potential impact upon other initiatives they already have underway.

Now, go back and take a closer look at #1, #2, and #3 above. Realize that individuals have EARNED vast fortunes by finding and implementing an answer to just one of these three questions.

And those who find and implement answers to all three questions? Well, they are the wealthiest of the wealthy.

Ok, here’s your homework assignment…for the next week, every time you spend money, turn on your curiosity mode, consider and analyze the overall business situation in which you are spending money, then ask yourself the three questions above.

I’m confident you’ll be amazed at just how many opportunities there are all around you.

Now that you know this, guess what?

Now, it’s up to you to watch closely for the right opportunity and then implement.

Now, it’s time for you to expand your horizons and your awareness and transition beyond a mere consumer and become a member of the wealthy provider club.

It won’t happen over night. You’ll make plenty of mistakes. There’ll be some suffering. You’ll have to make some sacrifices. People will laugh at you, make fun of you, tell you that you’re not very smart, and that you don’t have what it takes. And, it’s all ok because you’ll end up wealthy…enjoying the goodness and fullness of life that God has for you and making a far bigger difference in the Kingdom of God.

How can I become more prosperous?

If you were to ask me, “How can I become more prosperous?”, here’s some of what I would tell you:

  • Remember to ALWAYS let God be your strength and consider Him in everything you do.
    Be an entrepreneurial, successful, positive, high-value, low-maintenance person so that you can have entrepreneurial, successful, positive, high-value, low-maintenance friends / colleagues.
  • High earners are HUGE action takers, excellent relationship builders, and excellent connection makers. They have the contacts, relationships, and active connections that are benefiting their own and others bank accounts. They got this way ON PURPOSE because striking key relationships is one of the best ways to increase income.
  • Create, produce, implement or provide something that’s of value to others. Now, find a way to improve it. Then, improve it yet again. Next, create, produce, implement, or provide something that’s complimentary to the first thing so that you have two things to offer to people. Keep on repeating this process.
  • It’s PARAMOUNT that you make changes for the better. Get serious. Do things differently. Step outside your comfort zone. Stretch your wings and fly. Connect with people by phone, letter, or best of all, face to face. Put yourself out there – not as a beggar but as a value-provider.
  • Up to this point, YOU have REPEATED a set of tasks and procedures – YOU have operated your own little methodology or system – all of which produced the income level you now have – all of which you’ll need to improve, enhance, upgrade, and add more features, functions, and capabilities to so that you can increase your value production if you desire to increase your income level. This is true whether you work for yourself or someone else.
  • Here in the US as well as in some other countries, a nation’s wealth is measured by its “Gross Domestic Product” (GDP). GDP is a measure of the total market value of goods and services produced that nation’s citizens. It’s the income generated by the output of that country’s citizens. It’s the rewards for all the activity and performance that’s of value to the citizens of that country. And, how much GDP grows from one period to another is a strong indicator of that nations economic health. Guess what? This same concept applies to the personal, individual level – your income IS a MIRROR of your “Gross PERSONAL Production” (GPP).
  • Your “Gross Personal Production” is a matrix of these three things:
  1. Offering and selling existing products or services to people who are new to your world.
  2. Offering and selling something new and wanted to an interested audience who is already a part of your world.
  3. The systems of action, accomplishment, achievement, and completion – systems that create, develop, extend, enhance, convert, improve, and maintain items #1 and #2.
  • Your “Gross Personal Production” – the amount of money you receive – is in proportion to the size of your systems. More specifically, it’s in proportion to how expansive and frequently your systems make valuable offerings to interested people that convert into completed sales.
  • People have set up systems that generate a few hundred dollars (substitute your own currency for those of you outside the US) all the way up to several billion dollars per month. What is your system generating for you each month?
  • Let me say it this way… Money moves towards people and things of value. You can make money selling something of value that you own. You can make money selling something of value that you DON’T own but have the right to sell. To make more money, make more sales. To make more sales, give people – and more people – more opportunities to buy – purposely give them multiple opportunities to buy and give them calculated opportunities to buy multiple things. And always, always be building a customer list so that you always have someone to sell something to. All that you hope for is available for you to have and intelligent, applied, persistent effort and focus will surely abolish the obstacles that are between you and what you want. Be encouraged. We’re still in business for God and as out-of-control as circumstances sometimes seem, God’s still in control of all things.
  • Perhaps, this is a good time to ask the age-old questions: A) What must I begin doing? B) What must I do more of? C) What must I do less of? D) What must I stop doing altogether?

These things are work…they are something that’s out of the norm for you…there are things you don’t know or aren’t sure about…and that’s why many people aren’t prosperous.

Let’s talk about “Mustard Seed” faith…

I cannot count the number of people I’ve encountered who want someone ELSE (or something ELSE like the lottery) to give them their first million so that they can THEN go do something in the Kingdom of God.

Unfortunately for these folks, they either don’t realize – or don’t want to realize – that what they want doesn’t line up with God’s Word.

They are unaware that they are WORKING AGAINST themselves because they are trying to do things CONTRARY to God’s Word.

Consider these scriptures:

“Another parable put he forth unto them, saying, The kingdom of heaven is like to a grain of mustard seed, which a man took, and sowed in his field: Which indeed is the least of all seeds: butwhen it is grown, it is the greatest among herbs, and becometh a tree, so that the birds of the air come and lodge in the branches thereof.” Matthew 13:31-32

“And he said, Whereunto shall we liken the kingdom of God? or with what comparison shall we compare it? It is like a grain of mustard seed, which, when it is sown in the earth, is less than all the seeds that be in the earth: But when it is sownit groweth up, and becometh greater than all herbs, andshooteth out great branches; so that the fowls of the air may lodge under the shadow of it.” Mark 4:30-32

“Then said he, Unto what is the kingdom of God like? and whereunto shall I resemble it? It is like a grain of mustard seed, which a man took, and cast into HIS garden; and it grew, andwaxed great tree; and the fowls of the air lodged in the branches of it.” Luke 13:18-19

In these verses, we can see that things that are blessed of God START with something SMALL that is PLANTED in OUR garden (ministered in our ministry) so that God can bless it and cause it to GROW and BECOME something GREAT.

The problem is, many people are unwilling to humble themselves DOWN to the point where they can start SMALL so that God can do HIS work of GROWING something GREAT in their lives.

They FEAR what other people will think of them and in PRIDE they refuse to humble themselves to a “low estate”. And that’s such a shame because the rewards are HUGE for those who let go of their “people” consciousness and embrace a “God” consciousness.

That’s part one. Here’s part two…

Lots of people talk about these two verses:

“And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you.” Matthew 17:20

“And the Lord said, If ye had faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye might say unto this sycamine tree, Be thou plucked up by the root, and be thou planted in the sea; and it should obey you.” Luke 17:6

Now, I’m sure you can agree with me that lots of people want this kind of faith where they can just SAY, “Give me money” and money will come to them. But, as Jesus told us in Matthew 4:4 and in Luke 4:4, we’ve got to LIVE according to the entire Word of God.

What this means is that we need to connect the preceding scriptures of starting small with scriptures like:

“Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again.” Luke 6:38

“Knowing that whatsoever good thing any man doeth, the same shall he receive of the Lord” Ephesians 6:8

WHEN people make this connection, THEN they’ll have something that will REALLY WORK in their lives.

Here’s the thing; I don’t care who you are and I don’t care what you DON’T have…

EVERYBODY has SOMETHING – however small it may be – that they can give as unto the Lord – they have something they can plant in the Kingdom of God.

Which means; the sooner you start giving and planting, the sooner you start ministering in your ministry, the sooner you can SPEAK to that which you’ve given, planted, and ministered, the sooner God can bless it to become something great.

How Can I Be Successful Like…

Frequently, people ask me, “How can I be successful like [successful person’s name]?

Sometimes they ask it like this, “How can I be as successful as [successful person’s name]?

And, when they ask me this question, you can feel their frustration, you can feel their hopelessness, you can feel that they don’t believe they can attain the success they desire.

They feel this way because they stopped too soon. They asked one single question and because of how they phrased and positioned the question to themselves, there wasn’t an easy answer and now they’re stuck – and that’s why they feel the way they do.

My friend, you must get beyond limiting questions and learn to ask yourself empowering and enabling questions!

So, in response to their question, I might ask them a question back like, “How successful is [successful person’s name]?

They almost always tell me, “I don’t know” or “I’m not sure”.

Well, as you can already tell from my question and their answer, they don’t even know what their target is. They have nothing more than a vague, ambiguous, ethereal notion of what they want. They just know they want to be more successful.

No wonder they feel stuck, stumped, and frustrated. Trying to hit a target of “nothingness” is ALWAYS a maddening exercise.

The obvious point is that regardless of whatever level of success you perceive someone else to have, you must decide clearly and specifically what level of success YOU want.

But, let’s say they are clear on how successful they want to be. Then, I’ll ask them something like, “What makes [successful person’s name] so successful? In your study of them, what are the specific things that you have observed them doing that you believe causes them to be so successful?

Again, they almost always tell me, “I don’t know” or “I’m not sure”.

So now, we both know that really, their desire for greater success is merely an idle wish. They want “something” but they aren’t really serious about it. They aren’t serious enough about it to actually try to study and figure out how to attain the success they say they want.

Really, they just want something for nothing – and God never supports that model. There is always a sacrifice, there is always a price.

But, I’ll push forward and ask them to give my question some thought for a moment and see if they can come up with some things they “think” the successful person might be doing. And, now that they’re actually thinking about it, they usually come up with two or three things.

Now, I ask them, “Are these things that the successful person does – that you just told me about – are these things that at some level – maybe it’s to a different degree – maybe it’s on a different scale – but at some level, could you do these same things?

Usually, their answer is along the lines of, “Uhhhh, yea, I guess so.”

At which point, I usually ask them one last question, “Do you really want to be as successful as [successful person’s name]? If you do, then you now know what you need to start doing because if you do what they do, you’ll become as successful as they are.

Ask yourself empowering, enabling, thought-provoking questions.

Study success.

Take action.

Success is waiting for you.

How To Create Affirmations That Work…

For an affirmation to work, it needs POWER…

POWER comes from God through Christ…

Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God.” 1Corinthians 1:24

By the word of truth, by the power of God” 2 Corinthians 6:7

And, the Bible is this truth, this wisdom, this POWER packaged up in WORD form for our benefit…

The SOLUTION to any and every problem you’re dealing with right now can be found in the Bible.

You can have victory over your problems by using Bible-based affirmations…

Find those verses that apply to your situation and circumstances…

…and turn them into an affirmation!

Let me give you two examples derived from Acts 3:16:

“And [Jesus] through faith in His name HATH made [me] [???]”

“The faith which is by [Jesus] hath given [me] this [???]”

And, just so it’s clear, the ??? part is the polar opposite of your problem…the ??? part is the “good”, the “ideal”, the “outcome” you want.

Go ahead…try plugging in the polar opposite of your problem into one of the above affirmations and see if you don’t FEEL a spark of POWER in just saying it.

This is good…

And, I want you to let it get even better…

I want you to learn to talk to yourself just like Jesus would talk to you!

In Luke 13:10-13, we find a woman who was bound with a crippling infirmity that she’d had for 18 years.

Do you know what Jesus said to her when his path crossed hers?

He said, “Woman, thou art loosed from thine infirmity.”

And immediately, this woman was made whole and she gave glory to God.

Could you use the PATTERN of Christ’s words in talking to yourself to create the same effect of victory in your life?

“[Your Name], thou art [???]”

Brother or Sister in Christ, you CAN use the PATTERN of Christ’s words in your life and His words WILL work for YOU too!

Of course, it doesn’t matter what you say if you’re constantly IMAGINING unpleasant, unwanted, and undesirable situations and circumstances. So, put away those negative thoughts.

Actively reject and eject any and every thought of what you don’t want from your mind. Give zero energy (fertilizer) to the undesirable – it may in fact exist at this moment in time but that doesn’t mean you have to give energy to it.

Instead, as you say your affirmation, IMAGINE yourself actually having, doing, being the good that you desire…IMAGINE yourself actively engaged with, in operation with, performing with, and using the good you desire even as you say your affirmation. In this way, you put good energy (fertilizer) into what you do want.

Bottom line, when you holistically think, talk, and act according to the principles set forth in the Bible, you’ll find that your life is a series of movements “from glory to glory”. This doesn’t mean there won’t be times of hardship and suffering – there will be. But, even in these times, we know that a greater victory is in the making.

How To Get Out Of Debt (And How To Stay Out Of Debt)

I frequently get emails much like this one:

Hello Millionaires For Jesus,

Without going into specifics, I need financial assistance. Before I can become a “Millionaire for Jesus” I need guidance on how to get out of debt. I am not looking for a handout. I need specific guidance to get out of specific debt until I can have controllable debt. Please advise.


Before I describe the process of eliminating debt, I first need to make sure you are fully AWARE of a certain choice you’ve already made – one that you may not have even been aware that you made it. The choice was to:

  1. Operate on credit (easy on the front-end, painful on the back-end)
  2. Operate on cash (can be unpleasant on the front-end, easy on the back-end)

This is a significant CHOICE to make – this is a WAY OF LIVING choice – a choice that will impact you for the rest of your life with far-reaching consequences.

Also, this is a choice that everyone makes no matter what level of income they have.

It’s a choice one makes to:

  1. Get immediate gratification and forgo greater future enjoyment
  2. Forgo immediate gratification and gain greater future enjoyment

Somewhere along the way, a person DECIDES which way they are going to live and operate.

After that, they just habitually live and operate that way.

Here’s the thing, nobody ever stops wanting. If a person wants ABC, as soon as they get ABC, they’ll begin to want DEF. As soon as they have DEF, they’ll want GHI.

So, when a person operates on credit, they can quickly and easily get ABC.

But, the price that MUST be paid in order to get ABC now is to pay two to three times more for it on the back-end over what ABC would have cost if bought with cash up-front.

And, because they are paying for ABC twice or three times, that makes it more difficult for them to get DEF.

And, if they do manage to somehow get DEF, they have now indebted themselves to the point they’ll never be able to get or enjoy GHI because they’re struggling just to get ABC and DEF paid off.

Here’s an example you can check out for yourself: a $200,000 home with a 30-year, 8% interest mortgage will end up costing more than $515,000.

When you look at this truth, you can realize that you aren’t paying 8% interest. In reality, you’re paying almost 200% interest.

How wise is that?

(Approximately 1/3 of a mortgage pays for the home and approximately 2/3 of the mortgage pays interest – that equals 200% interest. But of course, lending companies know that if they positioned their business in its true light, far fewer people would borrow. And so, they use an “amortized” approach so they can tell you that you are borrowing at “8%”.)

If you were to walk up to the average person and ask them if they would trade you one of their $5 bills for two of your $1 bills you know they’d say, “No!”

And yet, the average person frequently makes this same kind of foolish exchange with far bigger numbers that have far more negative and severe impacts on their lives.

In Luke 14:28, Jesus speaks of “counting the cost”. If up to this point, you have not consciously made it your way of living to count the current cost compared to the future cost, it would be wise for you to begin to do so.

At this point, you may be thinking to yourself, “But, I have to have a home. And, there’s no way I can pay cash for it given my current means. What am I supposed to do?

The answer is that you DON’T buy a $200,000 house with a 30-year mortgage. Instead, you buy a $75,000 house with a 10 or 15-year mortgage. Your interest rate will be lower and the payment amount is one that you can much more easily afford to pay. From there, you pay as much as you can towards the principle loan amount and you make as many IMPROVEMENTS TO THE HOME as you can. With appropriate improvements, in one to three years you should be able to easily sell the home for a nice $10,000 – $30,000 profit.

Then, you take this profit and roll it into another $75,000 house – except this time, you have a smaller mortgage. In 10 years or less (usually less), you can work your way all the way up to the same $200,000 home that I gave in the example above – except you’ll be able to pay cash for it.

Think of that, paying cash for your $200,000 dollar home in 10 years while all your friends will be into their retirement years before they get theirs paid off.

Yes, your friends may laugh at you early on for buying a $75,000 “fixer-upper”. But at the end, you’ll be the one laughing, not them. And, as the old saying goes, “He who laughs last, laughs best.

While your friends are struggling with their debt, your dealing with how to best invest that extra $315,000 THAT YOU HAVE that they are giving away to someone else.

You’re making YOU RICH.

They’re making SOMEONE ELSE RICH.

Which model do you like better?

Let me shift the topic a bit…

People often ask me if debt is ever appropriate. In my opinion, unless a debt is a carefully calculated business investment – meaning the “cost” of the money is “calculatably”, logically, and real-worldly (think Murphy’s Law) less than the return on the use of the money, it should be avoided.

Even when the cost of money is less than the return, it is my viewpoint to look for alternative approaches and means besides using debt.


Because I value my FREEDOM. And, when I owe someone, I am REQUIRED to make considerations, choices, and decisions that I otherwise would not make! Specifically, I choose to serve God rather than man.

However you choose to look at it, what I can for sure say is thatANY DEBT THAT DOES NOT MAKE YOU MONEY IS BAD FOR YOUR FINANCIAL HEALTH.

Here’s something else for you to keep in mind…

You don’t deal with darkness by “fighting” with darkness. Instead, you focus on creating light and the darkness disappears. Similarly, you don’t deal with coldness by “fighting” with it. Rather, you create heat and the coldness goes away.

I say this to point out that although I’m about to give you a process to eliminate debt, at some point you don’t so much deal with the debt as much as you focus on creating wealth – and if you operate as God would have you operate according to the Bible – the debt just “goes away” and wealth is left in place.

In some cases, the amount of debt can be so LARGE that a person can quite literally never be able to “pay it off” via normal means. In this case, the ONLY solution is to devote all of your God-given creative ability towards creating a LARGER amount of money – one that will not only take care of the debt but also leave you an overage that can be used to create additional wealth.

Lastly, remember that no one gets into a bad debt position overnight and no one gets out of it overnight. Becoming debt-free is a process of discipline and time. And, these two are inversely related – the more disciplined you are, the less time that’s needed. Conversely, the less disciplined you are, the more time that’s needed to eliminate the debt.

Think of it this way, to bring about anything good requires a “gestation period”. And usually, that gestation period isn’t the most comfortable experience (just ask any pregnant woman). But, when the good has “birthed”, you forget all about the unpleasantness of gestation for the joy of the good that has been born. (John 16:21)

Now, here’s a proven process for getting out of debt:

  1. From this point forward you do NOT buy anything unless you can pay cash for it. If you do not have the cash for it, you do not buy it, do it, or go there.
  2. List out each of your debts – from the smallest, most trivial item all the way up to your biggest items such as your mortgage – with their respective balance owed, interest rate, monthly payment amount, and number of payments remaining. From this information, sort your debts in an intelligent pay off order. (Usually, it makes the most sense to put those debts that have the smallest number of payments remaining at the top and those with the greatest number of payments remaining at the bottom.)
  3. For the debt that is at the top of the list, you pay AS MUCH AS YOU CAN POSSIBLY PAY on that debt each month and the absolute minimum payment on EVERYTHING ELSE.
  4. Once you have paid off the first debt, you then take what you were paying on the first debt and add that amount to what you’re paying on the second debt – the second debt now being the primary target of elimination. Again, you continue to pay the absolute minimum payment on everything else that’s lower on the list. (This is where most people dig themselves into a deeper hole – once they pay off a debt, they go get their “next toy” and take on another, usually bigger debt.)
  5. Once debt number two is paid off, then the payment amount that WAS going towards the first debt PLUS the payment amount that WAS going towards the second debt now gets added to the minimum payment of debt number three. As you can see, what you’re doing is doubling, tripling, quadrupling, etc the payment you’re making on each successive debt. The net result is that the debt elimination starts out slow but quickly gains speed and momentum with the payoff of each debt.
  6. You continue this simple process until your every debt is gone. By zealously following this process, a family can take 30+ years of debt – including their mortgage – and pay all of it off in less than 10 years.
  7. Once all debts are eliminated, you take the monthly payment that was going towards debt and you start paying that amount into your very own wealth-building account. Because of the amount of these payments you can begin accruing wealth quite quickly.

At this point, I want you to take a moment and consider the difference between the person who has followed this debt-elimination process and the person I described above who avoided debt as much as possible. The Lord willing, they’re both going to pass through the 10 years. The difference is their position at the end of the 10 years.

The person who has USED debt extensively must use the 10 years to build OTHER PEOPLES wealth. In contrast, the person who has AVOIDED debt as much as possible can begin building his or her own wealth almost immediately.

Now, let me address a common problem… If you’re having a hard time paying all of your bills, consider these points:

  1. DO put smart thought into a plan and then take decisive action. As an example, it makes NO sense to “hole up in your house” and “hide from the world” if you’re headed for foreclosure. Not only does it not make any sense, it’s just plain dumb to set there until the sheriff’s deputy shows up to evict you. Even if the only plan you can come up with is to sell the house, at least you’re doing something to move yourself into a more positive position.
  2. DO communicate frequently, firmly, and professionally with creditors. Explain to them what your current plans and actions are. Explain to them all the things that you are doing to rectify the problem. Reassure them that you WILL pay them everything you owe them. To avoid communicating with creditors is to make the problem WORSE. For example, it’s not wise to avoid a creditor until he or she finally sues you for wage garnishment of the debt PLUS court costs and legal fees.
  3. Ask creditors if they can restructure or rewrite the debt so that you have lower payments. Of course, this will result in a higher interest rate and a longer payoff term but at least you give yourself some breathing room and the space to get back up on your feet where you can pay what you owe.
  4. DO seriously consider liquidating everything that you possibly can. Sometimes the best solution is to set your ego and emotional attachments aside, sell your house, sell your cars, sell your boat, sell your whatever, and rent a small place until you can get back on your feet. Rather than view this as embarrassing and humiliating, view it as an adventure that didn’t work out so well and now you are embarking on a new adventure.

As a last resort, you can consider seeking assistance from:

  1. Credit counselors – These people will analyze your situation, make recommendations, and will even call creditors on your behalf and get them to agree to extended payment terms. Usually, in this model you pay one payment to the credit counselor’s agency and they disburse payments to the various creditors. Of course, there is a fee for the credit counselor’s agency to do all of this for you. Also, just so you are aware, the fact that you’ve sought assistance from a credit counselor will show up on your credit report.
  2. Loan consolidators – These are private businesses who lend you money so that you can pay off all of your debts and then you owe just one creditor – the new lender. Unfortunately, if your situation is in too big of a mess (i.e. your credit is too bad), you may not qualify for the loan. Also, watch out for prepayment penalties. These types of companies usually make their money by getting you to agree to a long-term payment plan at a high interest rate – and they’re not interested in you “taking money out of their pocket” by paying your loan off early.

WARNING: Carefully and prayerfully evaluate any third-party solutions as there ARE those who are scammers and con-artists looking to take as much money from you as they can and then “disappear”. Be particularly cautious when the word “free” is used.

Now, there’s one more thing I feel obligated to tell you…

The “world’s” system is your financial enemy. Society’s financial messages are NOT for your good.

Consider the Visa advertisements that play adrenalin-pumping music as hordes of people use their credit card. And then, one lone guy pulls out his wallet and attempts to pay with cash. Immediately, the music stops and the hordes of people place their look of disapproval upon the one guy (click here for an example).

This message of “buy on credit” is hammered into millions of people’s heads every night…

Yes, they make it look fun and yes they cover it up with the guise that it’s “faster” and “safer”…

Yes, these hordes of people buying on credit are the 95% of the population who die dead-broke…

Yes, these hordes of people never get to enjoy time-freedom and financial independence…

They are another man’s servant…

Money is their master…for they never learned to master money…

They spent their life dancing to the beat of the wrong drum…

Consider the words of Solomon in Proverbs 28:22, “He that hasteth to be rich hath an evil eye, and considereth not that poverty shall come upon him.

With this verse in mind, ask yourself this question; “Is the use of credit anything more than just another way to hurry up and be rich?

Isn’t it true that the use of credit is nothing more than the desire to “live rich” and “be rich” now rather than later?

Consider another verse found in Proverbs 13:11, “Wealth gotten by vanity (debt) shall be diminished: but he that gathereth by labour shall increase.

Going back to the choice I mentioned at the beginning…

“The rich ruleth over the poor, and the borrower is servant to the lender.” – Proverbs 22:7

Do you now choose to operate with cash only and be rich? Or, do you choose to operate on credit and be a servant?

Here’s God’s will for your life… “Owe no man any thing, but to love one another” – Romans 13:8

Take these words to God in prayer and ask Him to lead you into all truth.

Positive Thinking Is NOT Enough…


Those thoughts that are good and wholesome and beneficial for both yourself and others are positive.

All other thoughts are negative and should be eradicated from your mind.

Positive thinking is good.

Positive thinking is important.

Positive thinking is NOT enough.

To be wealthy, you need more…

You need a focused, no time for distractions, all waste of any kind must be eliminated, action-oriented, get started, get finished, get it packaged, tell everyone about it, sell it to everyone, successful-outcome expected kind of thinking.

WHAT you think is important.

HOW you think is even more important.

Remember, DOING something USEFUL with positive thoughts is more meaningful than just having positive thoughts.

PSSST! Want to hear a real success secret?

From time to time people ask me how they can be more successful.

So today, I’m going to share a powerful “secret” to success with you.

And the secret is…


That’s right, LINKING to what is IMPORTANT.

Now, there are several important connotations here.

First, this implies that a person has taken the time to think through what is really important to them. Few people have actually done this. I guess it’s too basic for them. But, it’s the very thing that is holding them back from getting what they really want.

Second is the implication that a decision has been made about what’s important and what’s not important and only that which is important gets attention.

Third, we get the sense that thought, time and action is devoted only to that which is important.

Have you ever heard someone say, “I don’t know where all my money went?” The reason they don’t know where it went is because they didn’t have it linked to what was important. Rather, it was linked to the frivolous.

As long as a person’s money is not linked to that which is truly important to them, they will continue to be poor. It’s as simple as that.

Have you ever heard someone say, “Where did all the time go?” Once again, this person allocated (other words might include “gave” or “wasted”) their time to something unimportant instead of devoting it and investing it on that which was really important to them.

As long as a person fails to link their time to only that which is important, they will continue to be unproductive and ineffective in all areas of their life – never accomplishing anything of real value.

So, decide what’s important to you. Decide to have it. Then, link, relate, and apply every resource you have to what it is that’s important to you.

You’ll find success finding you in a really big way.

The Secret Weapon…

There is a secret weapon that people who know how to make money always turn to when they want to create more money…

Every time they turn to it, money starts materializing in their life…

You might think that this secret weapon is available only to those who are already rich…

But actually, it’s just as available to you as it is to the rich…

The strange thing is, poor people have reason after reason (excuse after excuse?) why they don’t use this weapon…

This is kind of sad because the secret weapon is the PRIMARY channel through which money flows…

What is this secret weapon?


I’m NOT talking about that group of people who are just like you that you’ve hung out with your whole life…

I’m talking about NEW people…

I’m talking about LOTS of people…

I’m talking about an AUDIENCE of people who have a need, an urge, a problem, a desire that you can fulfill…

I’m talking about CONTINUOUSLY expanding the number of people you KNOW and TALK to – who think of you in a positive way – so that you continuously put yourself in a position to create win-win, helps-you-helps-me circumstances…

And when you start doing this, you’ll be AMAZED at the opportunities and the money that will appear in your life.

Is this really a secret?

Not really…

It’s just that so few people are actually willing to step outside of their comfort zone…

So few will ever get past their little circle of acquaintances so that they can be more, do more, give more, and have more…

But the few who are willing to go meet new people and build an audience find that it is truly a powerful, money-making secret weapon.

How to increase your income…

Ultimately, you want to reach that position where dollars are working for you instead of you working and trading your time for dollars.

Trading time for dollars is not very leverageable.

There just isn’t enough time for you to get to the scale and level where there is big money. Even if you do get to the point where you are earning big money for your time, you will find that your time is so consumed that you can’t enjoy the fullness and goodness of life.

In the meantime, while you are transitioning away from trading time for dollars, it helps if you can increase the number of dollars you can get for your time.

Becoming an expert is how you get more dollars for your time.

Here’s how you can become an expert in as little as two (2) days:

Day 1

Step 1

  1. Go to your Central Library
  2. Go to the department that has the Periodicals Back-Issues
  3. Find the periodicals that pertain to whatever topic you want to become an expert in
  4. Scan through the periodicals and find articles that pertain to the specific subject you want to become the expert in. Don’t read them. If an article looks promising, write the title and the author down and keep scanning through the rest of your periodicals.

Step 2

  1. Now, go to the Research Department
  2. Find the computers with the Research Databases and log on
  3. Go to the EBSCO Database (which is a database of scanned articles from thousands and thousands of periodicals) and select the categories that pertain to your area of interest
  4. Search for the title of each article
  5. Click on the article title. Don’t read the article. Instead, click the email link and email it to your home email address.
  6. Do this for all of the articles that you found in the periodical back-issues that looked promising.
  7. Now, do a more general search for ANY articles that pertain to your area of interest.
  8. Email all of the articles that look promising to your home email address.

Go home and get rested up for Day 2

Day 2

Step 1

  1. Read through all of the emails that you emailed yourself on day 1.
  2. Apply the rules from these posts: How To ThinkMore On How To ThinkThinking Patterns

Step 2

  1. You now know more than most of the people who have been involved for years in the area of your topic.
  2. Go market yourself as an expert using the marketing formula: The Marketing Formula – Part 1The Marketing Formula Part 2The Marketing Formula – Part 3The Marketing Formula – Part 4

Three Financial Objectives…

1. Your first financial objective should be to get to a point where you operate on a cash-only basis and you are debt free.

a. Your first focus should be on increasing your earning power so that it is easier to operate on a cash-only basis and eliminate the debt.

b. Be CAREFUL to avoid a lifestyle designed to attract attention. Things designed to attract attention – gaudy things – are always expensive and are anathema to your wealth. Keep in mind, we are to bring glory to God – not ourselves.

c. Be careful that you don’t try to BUY happiness by purchasing “things” and “stuff”. Happiness is ABSOLUTELY yours as soon as you make two decisions: One, surrender your heart and life to Christ. Two, understand that happiness is a state of mind and that God has given you the power to decide what your thoughts are. Therefore, you can decide and choose to be happy by choosing the thoughts and feelings that you allow yourself to have. In contrast, spending money on something that produces short-term gratification only leads to spending money on something more expensive – so that you can have another moment of short-term gratification – further reducing your ability to accrue wealth. Before you spend money on something, ask yourself if the purchase is pleasing unto God and whether it will bring joy and enrichment to family and friend relationships.

2. Your second financial objective should be to get the point where all of your income is distributed as follows:

a. 10% goes to God

b. 30% goes towards living expenses (food, clothing, shelter, transportation, etc.)

c. 30% goes toward enjoyment in life (travel, recreation, dining out, etc.)

d. 30% goes into your wealth-building account

3. Your third financial objective should be to reach a point where you can put a pre-determined amount of cash ($1M, $3M, $5M, etc) into guaranteed and safe bank investments.

a. Although the return will be quite low, given the level of money, you will be able to comfortably live off of the interest for the rest of your life.

b. More importantly, you will no longer be tied to a job or a business and you will gain greater time freedom to work for God and to do things in God’s Kingdom.

c. You should determine in your heart right now, and make an irrevocable commitment that all money above your predetermined amount is God’s money to be used only for the purpose of building up and expanding God’s Kingdom.

4. Warning:

a. Always, always remember that although God intends for us to enjoy all the goodness and fullness of life that He has given us, He also intends for us to “bring forth fruit” unto Him.

b. Having big money IS NOT about “totally consuming it upon the Lusts of the flesh” and living some outrageous lifestyle designed to get the attention of people.

c. Having big money IS about building up and expanding the Kingdom of God WHILE we enjoy the goodness of life that God has given us with family, friends, and brothers and sisters in Christ.
d. To have any other perspective will cost you your most valuable possession – your soul!

The Wealth Formula…

1. Come up with a primary income stream. For most people, this is a job. As I have said in previous articles, you should be aggressively moving towards owning your own business so that you have more control over your income and your time. Further, owning your own business is important from a tax perspective. When you are an employee working a job, you earn money, Uncle Sam takes his portion first, and then whatever is left over, you can use as you see fit. For most people, this means that they are in effect working for free for the first 3-4 months of the year. Not very smart! When you own your own business, you earn money, decide how it is going to be used, and then whatever is left, Uncle Sam can tax. This makes a huge difference in your ability to accrue wealth.

2. Give God his part of all your income.

3. Take another part of your income and put it into a wealth building account.

a. Most people say take a portion of your money and put it in savings. This is wrong. You aren’t looking to “save”. Saving won’t get you there because there will always be something that comes up where you have to tap into your savings. If you are saving for a rainy day, guess what you are going to attract into your life? That’s right, rainy days.

b. What you are looking to do is build your wealth. Instead of putting your money into “savings”, you want to put your money into a wealth-building account. When you put your money into a wealth-building account, guess what you are going to attract? Right again, opportunities to build wealth.

c. The amount you contribute to the wealth-building account isn’t what’s important. Developing the habit of contributing to the wealth-building account EVERY SINGLE TIME money comes to you is what’s important. Once it is a habit, the contribution amount will increase over time.

4. While you are building up your wealth-building account, start looking for investments that meet the following criteria:

a. You can retain significant control of it. The outcome of the stock market is not something you can control and so therefore, stocks or futures are not good investments.

b. It won’t take your focus away from your primary income stream.

c. At the very least, it will passively produce a significant return on your investment. That is, it should appreciate in value with little to no effort on your part.

d. Even better, it will become a passive income stream that requires very little of your time and produces money on an ongoing basis. Investments that produce ongoing royalties, commissions, residual sales, dividends, or rental fees are ideal.

e. You are able to develop a thorough understanding of it. Virtually all investment failures can be traced back to a lack of understanding on the part of the investor.

f. It does not violate or take away from other people.

g. There are few to no employees required and certainly, there are no “expensive expert” employees required. Here’s the thing, employees require “baby sitting”. As a Millionaire For Jesus, your time is worth at least $481 per hour which means if you spend an hour baby sitting an employee, you just cost yourself no less than $481 and possibly more. Further, employees always want “stuff” – not because they necessarily need it but because they feel gratification in spending your money.

h. It is something for which there is a high demand for it.

i. It is something for which you have a reasonable level of interest in it. Something that you have no interest in is rarely a good investment.

j. It is primarily a cash-up-front or cash-each-payment-period type investment as opposed to a “terms” business where you are always having to try to collect your money.

k. It is something which you can purchase outright from your wealth-building account. Many wealth guru’s would strongly disagree with this, but from a Biblical perspective, it’s not God’s will for His people to be under bondage of debt. The presence of debt takes away people’s ability to make the best choices in their lives because of the debt. In the absence of debt, a person is able to make choices and decisions based on what fits their life, their family, and their work for God rather than choices and decisions based on making payments on the debt. Bottom line, the Millionaire For Jesus makes small investments they can purchase outright that produce gains and growth that lead to bigger and bigger investments.

l. Real Estate is the most common investment vehicle because it fits all of the above criteria.

m. Business creation or purchase is the second most common vehicle. The most common types of businesses (due to their low-overhead and high-margin potential) include: information product providers, direct marketing companies, laundry mats, storage units, and vending businesses. There are many, many other wise investments besides these.

5. Once you have found an investment that fits all of the above criteria and your wealth-building account can fund it, make your investment.

6. Then, whatever money this investment produces should go right back into your wealth-building account. It’s important to remember that you live off of your primary income stream. A profit from your investment doesn’t mean “party time” or go spend it (blow it) on “stuff”. It means take every penny possible from the investment and put it right back into the wealth-building account so that you can make even bigger investments with even bigger returns.

7. Now, simply repeat this process over and over.

Here is your life-changing tool…

God made me (Genesis 5:1)

He made me such that I can choose to have good in every part of my life (Deuteronomy 8)

The good things inside the above box are what I choose (write them in).

From this point forward, whenever I see, feel, or think something in or about myself that isn’t in this box, I hereby and forevermore decide to totally, completely, and unanimously REJECT IT and I emphatically choose to have what is inside this box!

I do not want or need justification from someone else in order to be, do, and have something great. The fact that God made me marvelously is justification enough. Further, Romans 8:33 tells me that it is “God who justifieth”.

I understand that it takes faith to be, do, and have something great and Romans 5:1 lets me know that being “justified by faith, I have peace with God through my Lord Jesus Christ”. The Bible reveals that I am a Soul, a Mind, and a Body and this Romans 5:1 verse applies to all three parts of me.

The Thinking Formula – A Reprise

If you haven’t already read The Thinking Formula, go read it first and then come back to this post.

I believe it’s important to come back to this subject of thinking and elaborate on a few things.

First, I stated that “people think they think but they really aren’t”. Here’s what I mean by this. What most people call “thinking” is actually doing one of two things:

  1. Replaying old “movies” and seeing old “pictures” of events that have happened in the past.
  2. Creating negative movies and pictures based on worry, fear, and doubt. Often, a person will start out with a momentary picture of something they would really like to have but it quickly turns into a fabricated mental movie of bad things happening to them, plans falling through, people laughing at them and making fun of them, losing everything they have, family and friends disowning them, maybe even so far as picturing themselves dieing. Don’t laugh because you’ve done it and I’ve done it.

Either one of these types of thinking is totally counterproductive.

There’s a better way to “think”.

First, when you catch yourself playing negative mental movies, consciously tell yourself out loud that you totally reject all negative movies and pictures and then deliberately envision yourself in a very positive movie with great things happening to you and you accomplishing great things. The bigger and grander you can make it, the better. (Did not the Bible tell us to “Girt up the loins of your mind”?)

Second, start really thinking by asking questions and searching for answers.

What you do is ask yourself the question, “What is it exactly and precisely that I want to do, be, or have?” Apply The Thinking Formula to this question.

Whatever it is that you come up with, DECIDE and CHOOSE to do, be, or have it.

Then, start writing questions down of how to remove or overcome obstacles that stand in your way.

Next, start writing down as many ways or means to remove or overcome the obstacle as you can come up with.

Keep doing this ever-narrowing sequence of questioning and answering until you either have a complete plan or you have went as far as you can.

At this point, you have done the hardest part. You have done what so few people will ever do. Now, it’s simply a matter of taking action and doing all of the things that you know to do to remove or overcome the obstacles.

It’s with this kind of thinking that you transition from being a reactive person into a proactive person. This is how you take responsibility for making your life all that God wants it to be.

Do you know people who react to everything that happens in their life as if they are helpless victims? Those are the people who aren’t thinking properly.

But what if you have a question that you don’t know the answer to?

You say this prayer:

Lord God, all wisdom, knowledge, understanding, and discernment comes from You. Here is my question that I ask You to bring me an answer to: . Lord, I turn this question over to You in faith believing that through whatever means you choose, You will cause me to fully comprehend the very best answer to this question. Thank You in advance Lord for giving me the answer.

Now, you simply file the question away in your mind and KNOW that God’s answer to your question WILL appear. Sometimes it’s almost instantaneously and sometimes it can take years. But the answer will come.
