In my previous post, I talked about ‘BEGIN WITH THE END IN MIND’ and it was said that:
To begin with the end in mind means to start with a clear understanding of your destination. It means to know where you’re going so that you better understand where you are now and so that the steps you take are always in the right direction.

While that is so important, the importance for us to begin with what we have can not be overemphasized.
Yes, begin with what you have! The journey of a thousand miles they say, begin’s with a step.

It is a risky step! Take that step you need to take now, for it’s more risky not to take a risk. Remember, Rome was not built in one day.

There is something you have now, you can start with. The first thing you need to get started is not money; Yes, you don’t need money to start.
You need an idea, you need directions and you need opportunity. Starting an adventure with just money will end in futility.

Don’t tell me, lack of money is the reason you have not started that your dreamed pursuit or business. Don’t always base your plans on finance, like I will do this if there is money. I tell the truth, if you do that, the money may never come.

Make the plans for your God given vision and dreams, take a step and the money will come afterward. If you care to ask, I will tell you how I am able to publish my books and has establish a 6 figure business with no money in view at first.

Even God will require something from us, before He bless us. To Moses He asked, what is that in your hand? a rod, Moses replied.
The Zarephate woman, had just their last meal and Elijah was like bring and lemme eat first.
Elisha asked the window who came asking to be helped out of the hands of her creditor, what do you have in your house? and she was like a little pot of oil.
Jesus took just five loaves and two fishes to feed how many thousand men? The list is endless, so no more excuse from you.

Begin right away with what you have, stop that procastination, go after that your God given vision and business and you will come to agree with me that the feet of the just are ordered by God.

“The best way to learn how to start is to start and the best time to start is now!”
