There was this man who wrote a book at the age of 49 and decided to launch it on his 50th Birthday as it was his Golden Anniversary.
He had no money to fund the launching and so, he decided to seek help from a billionaire in his community.
He made a visit to the Billionaire’s home and after they exchanged pleasantries, he told his host what brought him.
The Man told him to take out a piece of paper and pen.
He said, “I will give you a test. If you pass it, I will give you the money you need and if you fail, I will still give you the money”
He then told him to write down the names of 10 people who could give him 10k each for his book during the launch.
Lo and behold, the man could not even write 3 names.
Now, take a glass of water and let me tell you something. . .
It is not enough to have talent and skills. You must understand the power of building valuable relationships.
It was a wise man that said, your network is directly proportional to your net worth.
Everything in this life actually reproduces on the basis of relationship.
Men are lifted through men .
Many of us are talented but we lack a cup bearer to tell the King that there is a Joseph that can interpret dreams.
There are heights and opportunities you will never attain if you don’t understand the power of Keeping Valuable Relationships .
When they say, turn and greet your neighbour in church/mosque at times, you don’t even know who you are talking to.
That might be the CEO of a company. But sometimes, we despise people based on their outward looks and judge them wrongly.
Remember looks can be deceiving.
That person you sit with in class, or the colleague at work that you look down on, may be the ones that will lead you to your destiny helper because you have no idea who they know.
Sometimes, it takes just a recommendation to change your story.
Don’t despise men in Life. You will need them one day.
Enjoy a Blessed life full of God’s favour!
