Now let’s jump right into it… and let’s be honest with ourselves. We all would like for more ‘things’ to go our way in life. But in reality, we know that life isn’t perfect, that life can be unpredictable, and that life isn’t fair.
Even though we shouldn’t… we find ourselves at times looking at other people’s lives who are better than ours and saying, “It must be nice!” Well guess what… it can be nice!
Our attitudes, actions, and beliefs all have consequences! With that said… there are 10 attitudes, actions, and beliefs that we should practice, and if we follow… we will certainly profit in life. We will not only profit financially… but spiritually and mentally as well.
I call these the 10 PROFIT COMMANDMENTS!
1. KEEP GOD FIRST!
Regardless of your situation, regardless of your position, Thank God every morning when your head raises off your pillow.
2. E vs. E
Your (Education vs. Entertainment) on a daily basis. Your time in education should far outweigh your time in entertainment.
3. THE (70/10/10/10) RULE
This is the financial budgeting bible… if you will. With each paycheck: 70% to live off of… 10% life savings… 10% tithes… and 10% investing!
4. WORK YOUR LOVE
So important! If your job is what you love, then you don’t have a job… you have a fun, meaningful activity that pays.
5. DO MORE THAN EXPECTED
If you give more to your employer than what’s normally expected… you will soon reap more benefits than you expect.
6. GIVE MORE THAN EXPECTED
No brainer! You should already know… if you want more, the best way to assure that is to give more!
7. PATIENCE… PATIENCE… PATIENCE!
So many people miss their blessings due to a lack of this. The higher you strive… the longer the journey! Don’t quit before you reach the end.
8. DEVELOP CONSISTENCY
What we do everyday shows itself. The other profit commandments are useless unless practiced daily.
9. NEVER GRADUATE
Your education doesn’t end on graduation day! Whatever you love to do… take it upon yourself to master your subject.
10. PUT GOOD THINGS OUT…
If you develop these profit commandments without treating people right, and spreading negativity… then all your efforts will be in vain.
We all are accustomed to relating profits with finances, but we should strive to profit in every aspect of living. Applying these 10 Profit Commandments to our daily walk, will not only help our wallets… it will enrich our lives, enrich our spirits, and enrich our future!
