We live in a world that values speed over process. However, to achieve lasting success, you must respect the process. Everybody wants to be successful, but very few are willing to pay the price. There’s an abundance of get-rich-quick schemes and promises of overnight success. However, that is a dangerous road to travel on.
You have to take the time to grow into the person God designed you to be before you can access the gifts he has in store for you. If you jump up, you’ll come down, but if you grow up, you’ll be able to maintain that growth.
Studies show that about 70% of all lottery winners end up going broke and filing for bankruptcy. This is what happens when you stumble into success before you have grown into the kind of person that can sustain it.
In the Bible, King Saul became the ruler of Israel suddenly, and he messed it up and was rejected by God. However, David was trained and put through a process and he became the greatest king of Israel. The process makes the difference.
God will always give you a dream that’s too big for you to accomplish on your own. You have to build yourself up from the inside out so that you can always produce the desired results and maintain them. That’s why as a child of God, you shouldn’t cry about what you’ve lost because you know there’s more where it came from.
The engine on your inside is of a very heavy capacity, so partner with God and follow his instructions to become the best version of yourself and have lasting success.
