The Anatomy Of A Winning Strategy

Updated: Jan 31, 2021

Don’t sit back hoping not to lose. Forget about comfort. Get out of your comfort zone. Be willing to stretch. Don’t be afraid to be questioned or challenged. Be willing to be pushed, criticized and judged. Take what you can use and shake the rest off your feet.

Matthew 10:14    New International Version (NIV)

14 If anyone will not welcome you or listen to your words, leave that home or town and shake the dust off your feet.

Appreciate and be thankful for open doors, new opportunities and people willing to invest in you. Be thankful for the people in your life that are willing to tell you the truth, even if it means stepping on your toes, to ensure you are the best you and the best at what you do. Appreciate and be thankful for closed doors, past experiences and people who may doubt and force you to clarify, focus and define (or in some cases redefine) your dream. Take what you know, take your talent, take your craft to the next level. All of which God put in and entrusted to you. God is in the promotion business. Show him you want it.

Be Prepared.

Matthew 25:1-13   New International Version (NIV)

The Parable of the Ten Virgins

25 “At that time the kingdom of heaven will be like ten virgins who took their lamps and went out to meet the bridegroom.Five of them were foolish and five were wise. The foolish ones took their lamps but did not take any oil with them. The wise ones, however, took oil in jars along with their lamps. The bridegroom was a long time in coming, and they all became drowsy and fell asleep.

“At midnight the cry rang out: ‘Here’s the bridegroom! Come out to meet him!’

“Then all the virgins woke up and trimmed their lamps. The foolish ones said to the wise, ‘Give us some of your oil; our lamps are going out.’

“‘No,’ they replied, ‘there may not be enough for both us and you. Instead, go to those who sell oil and buy some for yourselves.’
