    Why Every Day Counts

    One of the iconic moments in Karate Kid is the wax on, wax off lesson. Daniel, the main character, is expecting to be taught karate by Miyagi, his master. But Miyagi keeps giving him seemingly menial tasks such as cleaning and waxing his car using a “wax on, wax off” motion. Before long, Daniel has had enough and questions his master’s training. Only for Miyagi to show him that every menial task he’s given him has taught him an essential karate move. Regardless of what field you’re in, there’s probably an element of repetition in the things you do and the people you engage with on a daily basis. Sometimes,…

    Divine Opportunities

    Not every open door (or even window) is from God. Some come from fellow human beings. Others come from the enemy. Yes, the devil has no qualms setting people up for greatness if it serves his purpose; and he equally has no reservations about destroying them during or after his purpose is achieved. Divine opportunities: (1) come from God (2) to serve His purpose on earth (3) at an appointed time and season (4) in a manner that matches the configuration He’s given you. In the marketplace they can take the form of a new job, a new business deal, a new work project, a new business partnership, etc. There’s…
