The month of July is an ideal time of the year for reflection, and if needed, course correction. Today I decided that I needed to enact a mid-year review of key areas where growth is needed and to look at my pursuit toward self-development; Spiritually, Financially, and Intellectually.
Right now, if I am honest with myself, I’ll say Spiritually I am getting there, Financially, there remains a stronghold to be broken and Intellectually, i.e. decision-making, there is much room for growth.
I have no choice but to scale up in all aspects of personal development. Speaking from the perspective of a flawed Baby Boomer and as an Entrepreneur, I need to maintain and expand my customer base. I also need to increase the market share of local advertising dollars. As a Christian, I am a person who believes in the power of activated scripture. I plan to do my very best to adhere to the wisdom woven within the Book of Proverbs.
I look forward to my quest for a better me, a greater understanding of others and territorial expansion. So, as this summer turns into fall and fall gives way to winter, I’ll do my best to place within my psyche these seven idioms, precepts, sayings of the wise and govern myself according to these scriptures:
“Don’t waste your breath on fools, for they will despise the wisest advice. is their strength and the Honor.” Proverb 23:9 NLT
“A person without self-control is like a city with broken-down walls”. Proverb 25:28 NLT
“Lazy people turn over in bed. They get no farther than a door swinging on its hinges.” Proverbs 26:14 NLT
“There is more hope for a fool than for someone who speaks without thinking”. Proverb 29:20 NLT
“Do not withhold good from those to whom it is due when it is in your power to do it.” Proverb 3:27 ESV
“Wealth from get-rich-quick schemes quickly disappears; wealth from hard work grows over time.” Proverb 13:11
“Let someone else praise you, not your own mouth-a stranger, not your own lips. Proverbs 27:2
I selected seven Proverbs because, as you know, Biblically seven is the number of completeness and perfection (both physical and spiritual).
Now that you have my seven compelling Proverbs for my personal clarity in my exponential growth; perhaps you should list yours, I would love to hear them.
