On success and faultfinders


They say tomorrow belongs to people who prepare for it today. True to the words, today is in the hands of those who prepared for it yesterday. If you missed today, do you plan to miss tomorrow again? If not, what plans are you setting in place to own tomorrow? Is your faith today strong enough to support your plans for tomorrow?

Boundless accomplishments work better with solid faith. Without faith, it’s hard to attain anything in life because faith makes you say “I can do it, and I will do it,” while the absence of faith on the other hand makes you give up prior to trying.

If that’s not enough, people with no faith are regularly green-eyed. They usually find themselves censuring foundations of other people. The most horrible mistake you can make is to envy those who believe in themselves. As my brother Kimpho Loka once put it that “If you think can’t do it, then don’t disturb those who think they can do it.”

Don’t waste time and energy answering every damaging comments that people say about you. If its good criticism, take it, if not, throw it away and pretend like you have heard nothing because in your business plan or career plan, there is no section which says you should answer or pay attention to people’s negative comments. Put your concentration on what you want to do and let them talk behind your back for as long as they can, until they realize that they are not even close to you back because you are so far ahead of them.

As my favorite celebrant Prophet Shepherd Bushiri always puts it that “When David was about to defeat Goliath, his brothers mocked him and insulted him, but he never answered back because that was not his fight. He kept on preparing for the fight ahead with Goliath and in the end, his success was celebrated by all, including the very same people who belittled him at first.”

Let people belittle you and laugh at your humble beginning today. When you finally make it, they will celebrate your success with you and even remind you of a connection/relationship/friendship you have no idea of. Success is the better silencer of haters.
