I HAVE LEARNED TO UNDERSTAND THAT LIFE IS NEVER A STRAIGHT LINE
I love to move forward; but let me tell you is never going to be easy as there 101 distractions along the way. You plans, your relationship, your ideas, your finances and the list goes on….everything goes the wrong way as you are trying to move forward.
TAKE A STEP BACK AND ASK YOURSELF WHY?
There is always a fight between the inner-man and the outer man; but hang on there and don’t give up. I been there many many times and I have always been able to get out of it with frustration. I have also learn to let go and let God.
IN ALL THINGS PRIORITISE YOUR NEEDS
Put your relationship in order first before anything else, there is no real happiness to move forward with anything else than to put your relationship in order. When I say relationship, it means your relationship with God. If God is not a centre of your activities; trust me everything that you are doing will go to vain. I have taken my time to pray to him each day and pour out my frustration, at times I have cried, laughed and screamed. I speak to Him because He is my creator and my sculptor; He knows my desires, my frustration and my needs.
PUTTING MY FINANCES RIGHT FROM THE START
Most section of the bible it speaks about wealth and why it is important to be a good steward. Millions of dollars have gone thru my hands and I have mis-managed it due to lack of intuition. I cannot deny that I am a bad master of my finances. When I was a successful person I take everything for granted, family, friends, employees and all other people that I loved and cared for. Whenever I see myself in the mirror I get angry easily; I can’t even see myself anymore. It was sad when I lost everything that I cared and loved for. I work so hard and give my best in everything I did but I didn’t pay attention to my finances I have trusted people to do it on my behalf and I was completely wrong. Should I give up!! NO, I just need to start all over again victoriously by putting God first in my life.
WHERE TO START FROM HERE?
Recently I started my personal journey to discover myself; I start evaluating myself in relationship and how good I am? Can I give 100% unconditional love to a person; is going to be an uphill climb as I have never ever loved anyone in my life accept God. When I started drawing a chart with a portfolio of things that I need to do so that my relationship moving forward will be great!! I was totally shocked. I realised that I have so many challenges ahead of me and I am praying that my God will give me wisdom to handle each one of them as I move forward. At least I am taking effort to do something good even though this is my serious weakness in the whole person concept.
MY BUSINESS AND THE PEOPLE THAT I AM SERVING
Today, I am consultant and senior adviser for MDRT (Million Dollar Round table), COT (Court of the Table) and TOT (Top of the Table) and also a executive consultant to FINWAZE Philippines (www.finwaze.com). As I teach advisers how to be a millionaire by taking care of existing clients and do all necessary to ensure that what you promised them you deliver them. The accountability and responsibility is not a joke is a serious job as a financial adviser. The great thing is when our clients achieved their dreams and aspiration we also become successful because of their success; that’s the beauty of caring for the clients with all our heart. In the same token as a consultant and senior adviser moving forward I have to ensure that the Financial Advisers that I am coaching and mentoring are well taken care and they achieve their dreams and goals.
LIFE IS NOT A STRAIGHT LINE
If people around you cannot accept your weakness and your failures leave them alone and continue your journey as there is a person who cares for you and love you UNCONDITIONALLY – that’s GOD.
