When everything is going great, it is easy to speak about good things and good times. But when situations aren’t great, when we face hurdles, can we still speak good and hope? Yes, we can (and we should).

  • It is during not-so-good times that our faith is being revealed – do we really trust in the goodness of God for our life, career, family, business, etc, or are we simply faking faith?
  • When we trust in the goodness and love of God toward us, we begin to speak about it. We will not be able to be silent about it.
  • It is when we speak about the good things which we hope for, that situations begin to change for better. The miracle is in speaking out what we believe!
  • Speak what you want to see happen, not what you fear might happen.

The Holy Scriptures say, “Now faith is being sure we will get what we hope for. It is being sure of what we cannot see.” (Hebrews 11:1 New Life Version)

“If you got the guts to say it, God’s got the power to do it!” (Kenneth Copeland)


Recently I was with a wonderful group of business people who are passionate about making a difference in the marketplace. They were from different business domains.

One thing that fascinated me was their attitude to help each other. Usually we find takers. Here I found givers.

Most of them had their own businesses to take care of. However everyone one was ready to help the other person succeed.

Some shared their challenges. Others brainstormed the solutions. Some shared how they overcame similar challenges. It was altogether inspiring, all because they chose to help each other than trying to sell to one another.

And the beauty is, some of them could find potential clients, potential customers and potential business partners right there in that gathering even without promoting their services and products. How? By choosing to be a giver, than a seller. In fact, giving is the highest form of selling!

So here is today’s question: what can you give today to make your work more productive and successful?
