Welcome to 8th January and the 8th Day of 2023. Today is Sunday and a day for reflection and reconciliation unto God and Man; forgive them and free yourself today; they are not worth the pain you feel.
Today we are taking a look at 4 TIMELESS PRINCIPLES THAT AFFECT YOU NO MATTER YOUR RELIGION.
Being a Christian, I am going to take the Principles from the Bible but these are Principles that are timelines, ever potent and apply to everyone regardless of their beliefs, faith and religion.
On our mission to be very productive this year and to ensure each day counts, I am going to talk about Principles that pertains to work, productivity, results and rewards.
1ST PRINCIPLE: Genesis 8:22 – As long as the earth endures, seedtime and harvest, cold and heat, summer and winter, day and night will never cease.”
Regardless of your religion or belief, this Principle of Seed time and Harvest time affects you in everything you do. When you fail to sew, you deny yourself of harvest.
When you fail to learn, you deny yourself of opportunities, when you fail to save, you deny yourself of comfort, when you fail to invest, and you deny yourself of peace of mind. Whatever you fail to do, do not be surprised when you reap no benefits from it.
2ND PRINCIPLE: Proverbs 14:23 – In all toil, there is profit but mere talk tends to poverty. No matter what religion or belief you have, this principle will affect you. When you spend more time talking about what you want to do, desire to do, dream of doing but never get to work to get it done, you do not make any progress, as such you do not reap any benefits.
This is why some people advocate for working in silence and letting the results of your work show; rather than being loud and having nothing to show for it.
3RD PRINCIPLE: 1 Corinthians 15:33 – Do not be misled: Bad Company corrupts good character. The need for relationships, network and people in our lives and on our journey cannot be over emphasized. Regardless, the company you choose to keep can adversely affect your character which is the singular determining factor for your success in life and business.
Character is described as the mental and moral qualities distinctive to an individual. No matter what religion you are in; this principle is true regardless. The opposite of this is true as well; Good Company builds up character and sets you on the right path to success in life.
4TH PRINCIPLE: Proverbs 22:29 – Seest thou a man diligent in his business? He shall stand before kings; he shall not stand before mean men. Other versions of the Bible put it this way: Do you see someone skilled in their work? They will serve before kings; they will not serve before officials of low rank.
Another version is; Do you see a man who excels in his work? He will stand before kings; He will not stand before unknown men.
The goal of this Principle is to highlight the reward of Diligence, Skills, Excellence and Service all in relation to work. Regardless of your religion or belief; hard work pays, diligent work pays, skillful work pays, excellent work pays and serving people pays.
Anyone who combines all these outstanding traits to their work is guaranteed nothing but success even if they are atheist.
So there you have it; 4 timeless principles that affect you regardless of your religion, faith, belief or conviction.
