If you Believe

Someone once stated that believer’s have no need to panic or worry over economic and financial downturns. How? well believers belong to a supernatural economy that knows no bubble or depression. It’s a faith thing. Set your mind on worries on the ground and you’ll probably not get too far. Believe that you belong to a higher economy, then see what happens next.
Twice I had to change the production date of my second issue of Trendy Africa Magazine. The contents had to be updated which required extensive research. There were too many worries down here. Just too many and too complicated. But one day, a faith based gentleman walked up to me. During our discussion he mentioned; “hey Tosan, do you know that your economy is not of this earth but of high above? believe and see things change”.
I stood back and thought over this for a second. Apparently, the gentleman had come to my job to replace a tire on his vehicle. On inspection, I realized that he needed a set. I directed him to see a sales representative and after much consultation he opted for a set.
Today, my second issue is a reality. Reality with the right mind set. Those who know can attest to how much time I had to wait for $1 of support. Expectations, realizations, dreams and vision all seemed to fade with every passing hour but I always remembered the real economy I belonged too.
I also believe that those who believed that they had expectations to inspire me can still achieve it. There is still so much more to be done and guess what? the product would always be a physical reality of our input. All you have to do is just believe.

    I have overtime come to realise that the race is not to the swift nor the battle to the strong nor bread to the wise nor riches to men of understanding, nor favour to men of skill but time and chance to them all. Most importantly, I have observed that this life is a risk and it is he who BELIEVES in staying postive and steadfast irrespective of his pocket standing or what financial or social crisis globally is saying that excels and leaves his marks on the sand of time!

    Belief, although there is a level of belief in everyone, the word can sometimes be over rated. We as Africans have been bamboozle into just believing. You must believe it shall come to past and then it shall come to past. We must not leave out the concept of understand there is a lot of effort and hard work that correlates with I believe. Some people have forgotten the core elements of hard work breeds success. I remember in my early years of business I did not put in the effort to do extensive research on my business and only believed that my success was destined. Sure enough because of lack of preparation the business was a failure. I now run a business that net $25K a month. Due to careful planning and determination I believe there are no limits I can not obtain. I want to reiterate, to believe you can do anything. To believe is a must, but you must also include the other components to have a level of success.
