In order to be successful one must use wisdom. In order to be wise one must have or show experience, knowledge, and good judgment. Wisdom brings success. Without wisdom, the trustworthiness of an action or decision with regard to the application of experience, knowledge, and good judgment, you cannot experience success. Being successful depends on the time you use effectively. Have you ever wondered how the next person became successful? What did the person do specifically that made success come their way? I have and if you be honest so have you. Success has more to do with the state of the being who believes they can do what they choose.
I woke up early this morning because my TV was on and I hate sleeping with the TV on. However, what was on my screen captivated me. So I pulled out my note-book and pen and began to write what the man was saying on the screen. This man was Mike Murdock he is a world-renowned televangelist, and he wrote a book called The 7 laws to Uncommon Success. He began to talk about success and explain that success is governed by laws. Implementing this system of rules governs whether you will experience uncommon success or not.
Let me reiterate here that we are speaking about an unusual kind of success. These laws govern those who are courageous and will go above and beyond. Those who are willing to take the initiative themselves work hard and achieve greatness are the people who experience uncommon success. I want to share how we all can experience uncommon success as entrepreneurs, using these 7 laws of uncommon success.
1. The Law of Difference- Our differences brings our value and our value brings our reward.
All though we are all humans and basically the same there is something different about each and every one of us. We were all created to do something that the other person is unable or willing to do. IF you do not know your distinct differences, you will never know what value you bring to others. As an entrepreneur align your business idea with your passions. Your passions are those strong and barely controllable emotions that you have about subject matters, people, places, or things. You can find your passion in your pain, information, desires, and those you honor.
2. The Law of the Mind- Every battle in life begins as a mind battle.
You should always protect what goes into your mind. It is important to guard your mind because it is the breeding ground for everything you do. It either solves problems or creates problems for your future. In order for entrepreneurs to be successful they must be willing to invest in their mind. Fill it with knowledge by preparing it as an environment for learning. Your mind needs a goal or focus, pictures, conversation and meditation. Your mouth should tell your mind what to think about. It is the place where you can create and produce faith in your ability to be confident in your dreams and visions. The mind is a muscle that moves your imagination into reality. Your mind should inspire you into action.
3. The Law of Recognition- What you fail to recognize will exit your life.
There is always a life lesson to be learned. Every moment is a learning moment. Often times we can fail to see what has always been right there in front of us the entire time. Something we don’t know about that can be harmful to our future is near us. As entrepreneurs, we must ask ourselves what God is hiding in someone or something that I can’t see. If you don’t believe in God then you can start right there. Recognize that God is and he will always be!
As entrepreneurs we can take on more than we should too soon and then when it doesn’t work out we will consider it as not profitable or a scam, when many times it is as simple as doing too much too soon. We should focus on the one idea before moving to the next. Too many things going on at one time can be a distraction and distract you from recognizing the next step that could change your financial future.
4. The Law of Two- Two is necessary for multiplication.
Two is always better than one. Relationships with others matter. We all need each other. Yes! Sure you are great alone but you need others. The book of Ecclesiastes, which is a book filled with wisdom, states “Two are better than one… the threefold cord is not easily broken,” (Eccl 4:9, 12). When God wants to bless you he brings a person into your life.
Entrepreneurs must recognize who those people are. In order to experience financial freedom you will need to depend on others to buy your products and/or services. Your willingness to strengthen your relationship with your target audience or customer depends on your ability to become financially independent.
5. The Law of Place- Your geographical location matters.
Your assignment or purpose in life is always to a person or group of people. When you are where you are destined to be no one can compete with you. Never stay where God has not assigned you. You will not be honored for your differences if you are in the wrong place. As entrepreneurs we must know that our money is in the place of the problem God has given you to solve for others. Remember that money is anywhere God wants you to be.
6. The Law of Honor- Your future is determined by who you have chosen to honor.
Honor is your ability to highly esteem someone by recognizing their difference. Honor is the seed for access into any environment on earth. Adaptation is the proof of honor. It takes humility to honor another person for their differences. Honor is something that people should be taught who they should honor. Humbleness is a modest or low view of one’s own importance. What is important to know about honor is it is a choice.
Entrepreneurs can shorten their learning curve by learning from the best. This can be done by studying an individual, reading a book, doing online research, or connecting with someone you chose to celebrate their distinctive differences instead of weaknesses. Honor will decide who accepts you, desires you, and rewards you. Honor qualifies for a different kind of relationship one that is closer, growing and long-term.
If you succeed in life it can be tracked to those you chose to honor. If you fail, it can be tracked to those who you chose not to honor. Above all you must honor the God of the universe to be successful at anything. All blessings come through the chain of authority.
7. The Law of Seed- Give and it shall be given back to you.
Seeds are anything that has value. When you sow a seed rather it is words, honor, mercy, money, love, kindness, gratitude etc… Your seed must be wrapped in expectation. You must have a motive for why you are doing something. For entrepreneurs this law simply means something you have given will create for you the harvest you dreamed of having.
Remember that the seeds you sow can contain life or death. What you make happen for someone else God can make it happen for you. The future of your seed is hidden in you daily routine. Successful men do daily, what unsuccessful men do occasionally.
These 7 laws are guaranteed to create uncommon success in your life as an entrepreneur. It is important that we maximize the time given to us to solve other people problems and become the beacon of light in another person life or situation by providing the proper products and/or services. The ingredients for success are: creativity births your future, structure sustains your future, and habits create your future.
