How do we express ourselves fully , how do we truly connect with the people we LOVE , the charities we want to SUPPORT and be impactful and change the world to be a better place.
I believe we need to really be AUTHENTIC and in our journey of AUTHENTICITY we must create WEALTH and not for our own selfish “WANTS “but we should remember that GOD owns everything and all we are are STEWARDS … we are given things to look over and to use effectively not only for our own benefits but also for the benefits of others.
If you cannot be trusted with $5000.00 what makes you so delusional in THINKING that you can be trusted with $1 million … it is never going to happen , so we need to re-examine our MOTIVES for wanting to create WEALTH , if it is for our selfish WANTS … then we do not deserve to have it.
The Bible says that GOD will touch men to bring unto our bosoms enough for our needs and the needs of others … this is the MYSTERY of MYSTERIES … men will bring , you will engage in trade using your GIFTS and TALENTS and men will honor you by giving you MONEY which is for our NEEDS and the NEEDS of OTHERS … so when you see people GIVING not from GUILT but from a space of STEWARDSHIP … you must know that they have DECODED the MYSTERY of MYSTERIES and therefore they have and are giving a FULLER EXPRESSION OF LIFE … you can become a BILLIONAIRE , it is within your reach …
HOWEVER the QUESTIONS is WHY do you want to be a BILLIONAIRE … examine your MOTIVES and once you get to the space of TRUTH and AUTHENTICITY … then things will happen for you … only when we move from a place of TRUTH and HUMILITY and not DECEPTION and PRIDE then … we will be TRUE STEWARDS … and experience a FULLER EXPRESSION OF LIFE … join us on the 26th July 2014 to UNLOCK YOUR MILLIONAIRE CODE …and learn the POWER OF STEWARDSHIP …go to www.billyselekane.com to buy your ticket .
Many people, my self included in the past, believe that life is unfair … I would have a plan about something I wanted to work on or achieve and sometimes when my first attempt was not successful, I would just give up.
My giving up often had to do with what people around me had said, or hearing about how so and so have failed in their attempt to start a business or to follow a certain path either I sports or show business.
When I realized how limiting it was to hang around negative people, I had to choose who I associate with; however, though the change in people around me was moving toward the right direction but somehow I was still ruled by this amazing fear or negative thoughts spiral. With those stories of failure at the back of my mind, understanding and embracing this principle was a matter in which I had very little choice on. It was either I held-on to those limiting beliefs and always spoke about how I nearly achieved something for the rest of my life or apply this principle to cement my process of unleashing the giant inside me.
A simple definition of this principle is: Creating an inability to give up no matter how heavily the “odds” are stacked against you.
I created a simple process of how to build this inability to give up, by using the most common tools to do this … OPE (other-people’s-experience). OPE is simply stories of other people who had in their lives experienced amazing adversity and yet went on to achieve their goals. They thus manifested their purpose, attained their vision though goals they set and just made it happen against all odds.
The reason I used this simple methodology is that, the stories told of those who had failed are the ones which paralyzed me: so then what else could uplift me rather than the stories of those who had made it. I simply replaced the belief “I can’t” with the one “if they can, so can I”. I carefully chose the stories about these people, read them, memorized them and used them as an anchor each time I was confronted with challenges in the journey of life.
