Sometimes I feel like SHIT, other days I don’t feel like SHIT but I know I ought to feel like SHIT all the time. You might be wondering what SHIT means but I can assure you its not what you think. SHIT is an acronym for; Strong willed, Hopeful, Information seeker and Trust God. Let’s see what each means and why we should feel like SHIT more often.
Strong willed: There is room for those that can dream but there is no containing a man with a strong will. A strong willed person will rather please God and displease man that please man and displease God. A strong willed person would never compromise integrity just to get things done. A strong willed woman will not sleep with a man to get an appointment or a business deal. A strong willed person doesn’t take no for answer and keeps at it until something gives. A strong willed person says to a wall “wall, you better give way or I’ll break you down”. A strong willed person sees a stone that other people called a stumbling block and turns it into a stepping stone. A strong willed person uses the words “I will” while others use “I may”. To be strong willed is to be determined and focused with the desire to achieve your goals at all costs. You need a strong will to make that business idea a reality. You need a strong will to be successful at your place of work.
Hopeful: Hope is looking past the present we see to the beautiful future we feel. Hope is the difference between giving up and keeping at it. Hope makes life worth living. Hope of a better tomorrow makes us work harder today. Hope of getting loved makes us see past the risk of heartbreak. Hope of a child makes a woman endure the harsh reality of the labour room. Hope of a blissful marriage makes us say “I DO”. Lack of hope is what makes a person commit suicide. Hope makes us look at our empty bank accounts now and keep working with the knowledge that things will only get better. Hope is the light at the end of that dark tunnel. Hope makes us look at our country now with all its insecurities and believe that things will get better. We need hope to keep going on. Remember, a hopeless man is a dead man walking.
Information seeker: Someone once said that the difference between what you know and what you don’t know is information. Lack of information is ignorance because information is out there but are you willing to seek for it.
Information is the difference between hard work and smart work. Information has a way of saving you time and money. Information keeps you in the know and makes you available at the right place at the right time.
Information is the difference between carrying an umbrella to protect you against the rain and getting beaten by the rain.
Information is the difference between applying to a company that does internal recruitment without posting vacancies online.
Information makes you meet the right people and transact the right deals. Some people give excuses for lack of information while others just detest information. Make it a habit to seek information via newpapers, TV, News Channels and most of all Google.
Trust God: Trusting God is like telling God that no matter how strong willed you are, no matter how hopeful you are, no matter how much information you have, without Him you are nothing. Trusting God makes you strong willed in the right direction. Trusting God refills your spirit and makes you even more hopeful. Trusting God makes you get the right information and makes it relevant. Trusting God is telling God that its not by your power or might but by His Grace. Trusting God is the difference between labour and favour. Trusting God is the difference between getting what you don’t deserve and getting what you worked hard for. Trusting God is what gets you the man of your dreams even when others claim they there are no real men out there again. Trusting God is what makes you rich even when the economy is not looking positive. Trusting God is what makes a way where there seemed to be no way. Trust God and remember that He cares for you.
