Wake up from your slumber

For it is often said,those who do not generate great ideas have to serve those who
do, because you only rise to the level of your ideas.
I am sure you have heard some say, “Ah! I thought of that idea first, I just don't
know what happened.” And all we can ask is, “Did you?” because we are not seeing the
manifestation of the ideas. Do you really think Mark Zuckerberg [owner and
co-founder of Face-book] was the first person to think of the idea of such a social
network? Of course not, but he was the first to polish up his idea to that extent.
God can give you ideas, great ideas but with your attitude and doubt you can let
them to accumulate dust. Nobody really appreciates the beauty of a shoe that is
covered with dust, but when nicely polished, Aha, the glory is revealed. Polish does
not only shine the shoe, but it helps in protecting it for a long lasting period. I
hope you got it. I love what Myles Munroe once said, but first he asked a question
before his audience, “Where do you think the most treasures lie in this world.” So
some answered; “In the gold mines” some said,
“diamonds, oil,” etc. Myles surprised everyone with his answer; he said the
greatest treasures are lying in our cemeteries. Let me now explain, He was trying
to emphasize how a lot of people die with big ideas, they never
executed/accomplished, never shared with anyone, but they had ideas of big
businesses, ideas to big inventions, to change this world. Do you want to leave
this earth without giving us your great ideas? Just last week, Eesha who is an 18
years old [American] high school student has invented the fastest phone charger as
of 2013. Her invention makes it possible for you to charge your phone fully within
20 secs. Yes I said twenty seconds. Now, sadly some will even have a hard time to
believe this. Only because you don't know how it's done, it does conclude to be a
lie. Napoleon Hill once said and I quote, “all achievements, all earned riches,
have their beginning in an idea.” Mba Adam Dobino once said, “Ideas acted upon
produces
results” My grand father,Adam Sabaah once said, “PROVISION IS IN THE VISION” He
likes to say, “For every child to manage to ride a bicycle, she has to see/imagine
herself riding it first.” So what are you seeing yourself becoming by end of this
year? Where do you see your family, career, business going? Pastor Chris has taught
extensively on the topic of power of thought in the DVD entitled “Power of
Thoughts.” The ability to imagine is a gift from God to man. Animals are limited in
ability because they cannot imagine nor have ideas. Now stop thinking how an animal
can imagine, let's get back to the subject at hand. Your life today is a reflection
of your predominant imagination, thus your effective imagination. The quality of
ideas that flow through your mind determines the quality of your life. God gives
His ideas to those who believe and act on them. Until we have the capacity to
receive, He will not give. Ideas are spiritual seeds, if
it is a God-idea, it will triumph over every obstacle. You do not have to be
struggling to come up with ideas on how to establish or expand your business. You
have the extra-ordinary strategist inside you. He is gentle, so he will not force
you to receive or execute ideas, he will give the opportunities. Everyday more than
2000 ideas pass through your mind, and each time you act upon them, you are
exercising your ability in you. Every action produces a reaction; and these
reactions eventually produces results. Finally, I have to say this again; “Those
who do not generate ideas have to serve those who do, because you only rise to the
level of your idea”, SEEK TO BECOME AN IDEA GENERATOR. Become the one people ask
for ideas from. You can generate ideas for this week, this month, year, even for
the next ten years, but I have now chosen to be generating ideas for the
generations to come. Ibrahim Hardi 0208235615.!
