I was counselling a guy and a lady on Monday, and I asked them to tell me about the things that have hindered them from achieving their dreams in 2017.
One said his uncle failed to give him the money he promised him to start his business, and the lady said someone promised to help her travel to U.K but the person failed to help her.
So basically they are living their lives on mere promises and making excuses by blaming people for their failure in 2017. What they have failed to realise is that excuses are the tools of the incompetent, the monument of nothingness, those who use them are not wise.
Many people remain stagnant because they believe someone somewhere is responsible for their destiny. Whereas, if your life will get better or worse, it is up to you.
A lot of people have forgotten that the uncle that promised you money also have needs and bills to settle. The sister that promise to help you travel to UK or USA may be struggling in UK. And she can’t determine if the embassy will give you a visa or not.
For the fact that people promise to help you and they are yet to do it, does not make them bad. Maybe at that moment, they are not in a position to help you. Instead of being bitter, pray for them and trust God.
Nobody is responsible for your failure in life, you are fully responsible for your life and if you succeed or fail in life it is up to you.
I had met some great men this year, who fell in love with what I do. Most of them had made very lovely promises to me, but I have learnt never to build my vision on people’s promises. Even the Bible said, let all men be a liar, let God alone be true. I have plan A, B and even C for every project I have.
So stop blaming people for your life, nobody owes you anything. Don’t go into 2018 with bitterness towards anyone.
