NO MATTER HOW HARD IT IS

12 MAY 2017

 

With Dr. Wilbert R. Mutoko

I came across the testimony of a Pastor that was raped on her wedding day and later lost her husband. Watching her narrating the story was so touching. However, what encourages most is the fact that she has moved on with life and she is a happy and successful woman.

It doesn’t matter what you are going through. Hold on and fight. You will emerge a winner if only you do not give up.

I love you and I am waiting for that day when you share your testimony of triumph.

Life can be rough. But keep fighting!

ASSUMPTIONS!

By Wilbert R. Mutoko
15 February 2017
They say assumption is the mother of frustration.
Have you ever observed that some people are frustrated and sad because they assume that so and so hates them and is the cause of their calamities. But have they verified? Are they sure that indeed so and so is causing the said problems?
On the other hand, some people are relaxed in life because they assume that things are just fine. For instance, a parent assumes that their teen is well behaved and so may not be involved in some bad things. Without cross-checking, such a parent could be relaxed today, but will panic tomorrow if things go wrong with the teen.
Some people are doing nothing about their current small problems because they assume that things will sort themselves.
Others are not taking steps for success in their school, work, business, marriage, finances, health etc. because they assume that the future will take care of itself.
Have you ever assumed things are bad because of abc without verifying? Or, have you ever assumed that things are okay, without verifying? Have you ever assumed that the future will sort itself?
I like Abraham Lincoln who said:
“Trust, but verify”
Stop leaving your life to chance. Stop assuming things. Take necessary steps to solve problems before they get out of hand. Also work on building your future and avoid assumptions.
Be blessed my friend

THE POWER OF PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT

18 August 2016

Excerpts from the book ‘Think & Gain Financial Freedom’ by Wilbert R. Mutoko
Copyright 2016

You can blame colonization, your parents, siblings or misfortune for your current circumstances. But believe me, it is not going to help you. You need to arise and develop you. You are the difference maker that you have waited for for so long.

Successful people read at least one new financial book once per month. You however, should not just emphasize on reading books on finance alone.

It is not good to concentrate on one area of life because if you neglect learning about health, family, career, business and relationships; you will end up being successful financially but with an ailing body, struggling business, spiritual stagnation, failing at school or sick marriage.

Great people endeavor to develop all-round success. That is financial success, spiritual success, marital success, career success, academic success, health success etc.

By reading books in each of these areas, you end up having a balanced life, and you enjoy true success.

I therefore would like to encourage you to read at least one book per week. If you do not like reading, you can buy audio books to boost your knowledge and skills.

So if you really want this week to be better than last week, learn what you didn’t know last week.

Similarly if you want this month or year to be more successful than last month or year, you must learn what you did not know then.

Such learning usually comes through personal development – reading books and watching good teaching videos or listening to audio cds.

The difference between successful people and others is what they know and what they do with what they know.

Job versus work

3rd August 2016
With Wilbert R. Mutoko
 
Stop looking for a job and look for work. A job is what you do merely to earn a living. But your work is what you were born to do. A job is your career, while your work is your calling. Your work can be what we normally call a job, or it can be a business, or a NGO or politics. Many people are frustrated because they are in a job and not work. They persevere in their job because they want to put food on the table. That’s okay for a while. But if you want perpetual joy, aim to move towards your calling.
 
Is it wrong to have a job? NO. While you are in a job, slowly take steps to your work – your calling. Your work will bring you fulfillment as compared to a mere job.
 
What if I can not find work? Start by volunteering in an organization that is linked to your calling. Better still start a small business. Sell something legal, no matter how little the profit is. Just do not sit at home and complain that there are no jobs.
All the best.

fame and wealth vs character

Sometimes when we hear of sex scandals, money scandals and other scandals among celebrities; we begin to assume that positions and money cause character flaws.

However, the facts are that, when you are not famous and not wealthy; your character defects are hidden from the public. Then when you become famous and rich, your character flaws bring up their heads.

Conclusion – you must develop your character, whether you are famous and rich or not. Preferably, before you are up there, make sure to solidify your character so that when you go up, your task is to maintain the character. The good character will then help you to sustain your fame and wealth.

LET US ACT NOW

“THE ACTIVIST IS NOT THE MAN WHO SAYS THE RIVER IS DIRTY. THE ACTIVIST IS
THE MAN WHO CLEANS UP THE RIVER” – ROSS PEROT

Are we not ashamed of continuously complaining and murmuring, yet things are not changing? Does it help you or any other person?

Let us stop complaining about the bad circumstances. Rather let us arise and do our part in providing solutions
