BASIC PRINCIPLES OF OVERCOMING POVERTY
November 14th 2012 05:20
1) Have a skill: I see most people moving about with
Bsc without any skill….Some even go cap it with Msc
from Uk or wherever but Unfortunately, they were
not taught that employers don’t pay u 4a
certificate….they pay u 4d value u can add to their
organization! Now, let me ask you sincerely…Do you go to the market to buy what you don’t need? If you
were the employer, would you employ a “valueless”
2). Create a product/service: Create aproduct or
service and charge a fair rate….even if you will still go
look for a job. Make sure you carry a solution to someone’s problem (could be a potential employer
or end-user). Exchanging your time for money is a
short term strategy…Don’t ever rely on that as your
income. Your skill is the only thing that would
guarantee acontinuous flow of income.
3). Save as if your life depends on it: Listen my friend, to arrive too soon is to arrive too small. Don’t be
moved by the pressure to look like the dbanj or the
tonto. Live within your means. Paying bills without
paying yourself is the number 1 secret to financial
suicide. There will always be a reason not to save…so
do Save, save and save at every opportunity you have.
4). Invest Wisely: A fool and his money would soon
part ways. Avoid funny schemes. Run away from
“Get rich quick programs”. High yield investment
programs come with high yield of loss and disaster.
Your race is a marathon and not a 100meters dash. Seek to understand the dynamics of an investment
before getting involved.
5). Know God: Understand that there is an infinite
intelligence that overseesthe affairs of the Universe.
That you and I have his spirit within us and we can
achieve a lot more that we are achieving if there is an alignment with this source[GOD]. That He that dwells
on our inside has no religion or skin color. That he
hears our deepest thoughts and aspirations. Share
your thoughts with him and I am sure he will
strengthen your desires. There are a lot more but
these are the basic principles.
