In business you have to see enough people. Most of us believe what we need is a shop, but this is not so. Our primary need is customers.

Success grows out of failure. If things do not workout you have not failed; you have just learnt how things do no work. Do not internalize your failure, it is just am event. The most successful sales men have suffered a lot of rejection. You cannot insist that every time you play football you must score a goal if you want to be a professional footballer. Get out and do what you must do-and keep on keeping on.

It is worth it to take from your savings to invest in your earning ability.
Increasing learning is increasing expertise. There is a connection between learning and earning. What you learn affects what you earn.
“Do you see a man who excels in his work, he will stand before kings and not stand before unknown men” Proverbs 22:29.
The acquisition of skill is very important. Even though prayer and fasting are necessary, they cannot take the place of skill. If we do not acquire the highest level of skill we are capable of, we are just role models by mouth. If you have identified your gift, strive to be at the top in your area of calling in your country over time.
