Every Morning, my dad would ask us to look through the window and when we see a male, we should call him to come and see which should be the first thing he sees every morning.
The myth is that if he sees a female first, that day is going to be a bad day. As ridiculous as it sounds, my dad lives that way till today.
1) The Myth that Money is a function of Destiny and Rituals.
I am a Christian, an ordained pastor in one of the most prosperous ministries in the world (Winners’ Chapel), yet, I don’t believe you become rich by going to church or by prayer and fasting. You become rich by offering value in exchange for cash.
The nonsense that wealth is a function of your head whereby, if you have a positive head, you will make money than those who have a negative head is heresy and it makes God look like a monster who is partial. The God I know is not.
The day you vow to be rich and pay the price to be rich, you certainly will make it. You need no rituals nor charms nor special prayers, the only prayer is that your wisdom pipe should open to reading and searching for knowledge on the area of your trade and that you get a mentor, be humble and be patient, till you succeed.
2) The Myth that you cannot make it legally in Nigeria (One of the biggest deceptions)
Where does the richest black man live? USA? Nigeria of course.
With all the blacks all over the globe, no one made it to be the richest except for a black man in Nigeria by the name, Aliko Dangote. Where is the richest black woman? Where does she reside? There is something about Nigeria that, if you open up, it offers great rewards.
What amazes me is that after carrying that mentality of you can’t make it outside Nigeria. I see Africans still struggle alot outside this country. A lizard in Nigeria cannot turn to Aligator outside Nigeria. It is what you are loaded with that you manifest.
3) It is not by might nor by power.
Well, it is by might and power of brainwork and handwork that we build true wealth. I work 12 to 15 hours daily. Tell me if that’s not hard work. I meditate minimum 4 hours daily going over what is committed to my care and how I can do better.
The part that gets me angry is when someone looks at me and calls me ‘Lucky’, ‘Young lucky guy!’ It irritates. There is no such thing.
The way you lay your bed is the way you will lie on it. Take time to lay your bed well. To make Money, you must do a lot of mental work. From reading to meditation to consultation and analysis on the value you offer people.
ELEVATION CHURCH is one of the fastest growing church in Lagos. Someone recently asked me; “what’s special about that Man of God? Pst Godman Akinlabi , I have listed to him several, He’s not exciting as a preacher”. I laughed!
It’s not about being exciting or deep as we call it; this man presented a 35 page document to Rev Sam Adeyemi when he was going to start ELEVATION CHURCH. A lot of mental work went into the conceptualization of the church before it started and that’s why it is working.
Brain work will give you in 1year what hard work plus prayer plus fasting and laying of hands and legs will not give you in 20 years.
4) Myth that rich Men don’t like sharing their secrets about how they make money.
This one is very amazing to me because those who like to share the most about how they made it are the rich. Most mentor will tell me, they can only see me for 30 minutes and in 4 hours, am the one begging to leave.
The question is, Why should A Rich Man Mentor You?
You are not related, why do you think you deserve to be mentored by a rich man? Why do you want to be another parasite to the list of parasites he has? Do you know that most rich Men and Women find it hard to meet people willing to give to them? Everyone wants to take from them. It’s wrong! When you are a value adder, a rich man will gladly offer you value too.
So before asking a rich man to show you his or her secret, offer a gift or request to pay them for teaching you or request to serve them; request with all sense of humility. The problem is that successful people are too busy, they don’t have time. But by service, you gain easy access.
Hope these few words have added value to your life. Enjoy your day.
