How embarrassing it is to be given an opportunity on a silver platter and you fail only because you were not really prepared for that opportunity. I have heard of so many people who lost some huge contracts because they did not have the capacity to handle the project or they were really unprepared when they got the deal. Prepare for the opportunities in advance lest opportunities come and find you not ready. It is better to be ready for opportunities and have no opportunities than to have opportunities and be unprepared.
Prepare yourself well in advance for your dreams lest God releases the favor and only to find you with no capacity to handle the blessings. Most of us God is not answering our prayers because he can see the future and he knows if He were to give you what you are asking for, it will destroy you hence why he is withholding it from you. I for one have had an experience with that and I tell you, when it happens to you my friend you will not like it at all. God showered me with blessings so much but they found me unprepared, I did not have the capacity to handle it, no strategy nor a proper plan of how I will efficiently run my business. But because I had so much grace for business I got so many projects, yet my systems were not in order and capacity was small because I did not prepare for such an overflow. I ended up being in debts which I could not handle.
Device a strategy after you have drawn your vision. Now that you know what you want to achieve and where you want to go, do a proper plan of how you will get there, how you will get what you want and how you will maintain what you have achieved. Hone your skills, develop new talents and learn something new every day. As we know the parable of the talents on Matthew 25:14-30, servants were each given talents by their master some were given more than the others and they all multiplied their talents except for the one who was given one talent. He hid the talent and he he did not multiply it, his master was angry with him the talent was taken from him and he was not rewarded as the others were. Self-development is essential on goal achievement so that you may be able to move from one level to the next.
Acquiring new skills will help you to be able to keep up with the growing pressure as some goals will be tougher to achieve, hence you will need a certain level of understanding. You will not know how to do everything at the beginning stage of your pursuit for your goals, that is why you need to be open minded for learning. Use all your capabilities and do not be afraid to fail because failure helps you to know what not to do next time. You are capable of achieving your dreams through Christ who gives the strength. I believe in you and I believe God never intended for you to fail, you shall be the best if you put your mind to it.
Now that you know how to prepare for opportunities, we will talk more on the next stage next week.
