To The Next Level
In life there are many obstacles that we encounter. I guess it’s not new to you that many entrepreneurs became successful after having so many trials and obstacles in life before they achieve what we call now as “success”. Although I believe in the saying that “Success is Journey, Not a Destination” still they have surpassed there once not so good experience in their life. Many times I always ask the Lord that somehow He should grant my wish to have a debt free and very comfortable life for me and my family and success in my endevours, but when I reflect on all the things that happened to me in the past, I realized that my situation now is not that bad after all.
I always forgot to count my blessings. Human nature are like that anyway. We are never contented. Specially entrepreneurs, that is why some entrepreneurs become rich because they are never contented on what they already have. But we should always remember that, as written in the scripture: “But Godliness with contentment is great gain, for we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out” I Timothy 6:6-7
So the next time encounter obstacles or problems in our life, think of it not as a stumbling block but as a big building blocks in our path. Since we cannot pass thought it, we think of ways to overcome it . And not knowing that after so many trial and errors, we are not aware that we are already on top of that building block. We didn’t realize that we are already in the “next level”. Just think of it that God is putting blocks in our path for us to climb to the next level. Then another obstacle will come and we will climb again to the next level until we reach perfection.
