It is very important we understand that intrinsic values are not inherent or transferrable through either blood lineage or mentorship. You can’t inherit your grandfather’s intrinsic values neither can your mentor’s intrinsic values be transfered to you. You consciously learn and develop Intrinsic values. Gifts are given to us by God, but values are acquired through the consciousness of principled living. Though our gifts are given to us, the development and enhancement of the gift is completely our responsibility. And your values determines how well your gift(s) will be developed, enhanced or refined, that development is what attracts success. That’s why the book of Proverbs 18:16 said; “A man’s gift makes room for him, And brings him before great men.” Permit me to say “A man’s refined gift”.
This is the reason why values attracts success, because success is what you get, but being valuable is what you become. And whatever you get you can lose but what you become stays with you. Values also determines your growth and happiness. Dr Myles Munroe acknowledged that in one of his statements, he said; “True happiness is embedded in what you can become and not what you can get “.
Let me give you this life secrets that will transform your life in a great way. Whatever you seek or desire in life, the secret to having it is; seeking to know who you can become to get that which you desire. So the question shouldn’t be how do i get this or that, the question should be who do i need to become to get what i desire. So in a simple term; ” You become to get, you don’t get to become” .
SECONDLY; MISSION AND VISION CAN’T BE ACHIEVED WITHOUT VALUES. IN OTHER WORDS YOU CAN’T SEPARATE YOUR MISSION, VISION AND YOUR VALUES, THEY WORK TOGETHER.
EXAMPLE; If you have a vision or a mission to be a doctor, or lawyer, or which ever profession you choose. The question is not “what” do i need to do to become a doctor? The question should be “who” do i need to become to be a good doctor? Values are always in the who and not the what. Understanding this will cause you to work on the appropriate and important thing; WHICH IS YOU, and that way all your commitments and endeavours will worthwhile.
Almost everyone talks about values because it is very important. But we need to understand the secrets to becoming a person of value. And again i have seen people believe strongly that with positive thinking they can eventually get what they desire, but they end up being disappointed. I am in no way saying that positive thinking is wrong, but what actually makes your positive thoughts become a reality is the positive character you put into it. And your character is influenced or governed by your values. I want you to leave this page with this statement in your heart; “YOU BECOME TO GET, YOU DON’T GET TO BECOME”.
Next week we will talk about how your values sharpens your mindset. STAY TUNED.
