18 Nuggets of Premese Inspiration

  1. Develop strong conviction that it is never too late to be what you were meant to be in life: Then put ‘First Things First’ towards your goals. Good luck only exists for those who work for it. It is not always the genius who get to the top but those who discover their talents and employ them with passion.
  1. Believe in yourself, coz if you don’t, who will believe in you? You must develop positive self-image. Don’t aspire to be like somebody else, believe in who you are and what you can do, then do it.
  1. To be successful you must start from where you are today, from the bottom

             The Roots of Success

     if that’s where you consider yourself to be: Then move on with determination. Don’t panic or envy or compare yourself with others. They started elsewhere.

  1. If unemployed, volunteer your services so that your talents may be discovered by those who will need them. Most people get good jobs and life-long careers from an initial voluntary service. That’s where the author started, which move transformed his career forever.
  1. Shun Fear. A timid person is frightened before a danger, a coward during the danger, while a courageous person is frightened after confronting the danger’! (Jean Paul Richter). Remember, the bigger the risk, the better the returns! But exercise wise judgement before taking the risk.
  1. Avoid negative competition characterized by pulling others down, otherwise you lose your blessings permanently. They may try to pull you down, but don’t reciprocate. That is not noble for a child of God to do. Don’t discredit yourself by speaking negative things about others.
  1. Forgive yourself and forgive others. Offload the baggage of remorse and guilt from your life by forgiving others and forgiving yourself. ‘I will permit no man to narrow and degrade my soul by making me hate him’ (Booker Washington).
  1. Shun mediocrity, do only what you like and do it at your best: Don’t aim at the average. Desire to be the best in whatever you do!
  1. Associate with appropriate friends. The principle of association states that ‘you cannot be better than your associates’. Associate with people who will add value to your life, but don’t look down upon those who are not gifted as much. Good friends are those who encourage each other on one’s journey to success.
  1. Serve people selflessly. People will bring you blessings when you serve them selflessly (Hebrews 6:10). The greatest source of joy and satisfaction for a human being comes from serving others.
  1. Protect your integrity. Protect your reputation and integrity at whatever cost. Be faithful and trustworthy in both small and big things.
  1. Humble yourself before God and He will lift you up. It costs little or nothing to be humble but the returns are enormous.
  1. Take good care of yourself. Observe your diet and exercise regularly. If you are over 40 years, get medical tests annually to detect such conditions as cancer, blood sugar, blood pressure, and such like disorders to be able to take corrective measures early enough. Avoid indulgence in smoking and alcohol. Enjoy your hobbies and if retired keep yourself active in whichever way possible.
  1. Seek to work under good mentors(s) and determine to grow up. A good mentor will not spare you when you are wrong. He or she will feel the obligation to correct you regardless of whether you would appreciate it or not. Work under a good mentor long enough to gain well-grounded self-confidence, knowledge, experience, and skill. When you can walk on your own, never demean your mentors just because you don’t need them anymore, or perhaps because you do better than them. You never know when the tide could change.
  1. Save for a ‘rainy day’. It is not what you get at the end of the month that will make difference in your financial life, but what you keep aside in form of savings. Poverty is degrading. Loath idle talk and work hard. Psalmist tells us: ‘Delight yourself in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart’ (Psalm 37:4). Avoid giving or receiving loans. Live within your means. If you must take a loan such as to expand your business, seek to clear it the soonest.
  1. Depend on God as your source of strength at all times. If you do so, you will never regret in life. “…blessed is the man who trusts in the LORD, whose confidence is in Him. He will be like a tree planted by the water that sends out its roots by the stream. It does not fear when heat comes; its leaves are always green. It has no worries in the year of drought, and never fails to bear fruit (Jeremiah 17:5-8). This does not mean that you will live a problem free life, but God will supply enough grace to lift you above the storms or to sustain your peace despite the storms.
  1. Don’t do good to people expecting gratitude, otherwise you will soon get disillusioned. When you do good, someone will accuse you of selfish motives. Your success will attract both love and hatred in the same measure. But you will be encouraged by those God will send to you for that purpose.
