One obvious difference between the rich and the poor, the educated as well as the ignorant is in abundance or insufficiency of information they have. One is only as good as the amount of information
The new future is created when a man hears information. Little wonder the Almighty Father says “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge…” Hos 4:6 when one rejects knowledge by whatsoever means one is unknowingly refusing the budding of a whole new season about to be revealed.
I am fascinated about the art of war, its tactics and everything that makes it an art or science perhaps.
And I have come to see from the whole picture that “the strength of your enemy is your ignorance”.
Has it ever occurred to you how most wealthy and highly educated people around you get to know how
much they know? I‘ll share with you the steps I have come to discover over the years that can be applied to accelerate ones climb to the top:
Have a link to the top: have a good network of information from experts or people who are better
informed than you. One thing that really holds people down is when they think they‘ve got it all.
Information drives the world today, each day you wake up asks yourself, what information you need to get you to the top or keep me on top. “Information is a source of learning. But unless it is organized, processed, and available to the right people in a format for decision making, it is a burden, not a benefit.”
Use the power of association: a woman was complaining bitterly about her son who always associates himself with people much older, smatter and better than he. Yes I understand her complain, she knows that her son will easily bear the brunt of the problems that occur with them, probably because he is the youngest. But I guess she did not understand that anyone would become wise that spends time with the wise. You do not have to be the best to associate with the best.
It’s easier to get to the top than stay at the top. Having a good link to the top can help.
Be inquisitive: as sure as a good ground will be blessed with good harvest, so will an inquisitive mind be
rewarded with the answers it seeks. I love to ask questions, since they will help me become better.
Getting information required to take or keep you at on top could require a master mind team. Build a reliable team around you to fill in where you cannot. Where there hands cannot reach, champions ride on the back of giants to reach. You cannot do everything yourself, the great minds and personalities the world has seen did not attain greatness by self might alone. But with the help of a good team they achieved greatness. You are as good as the team you work with.
The decisions you make are only as good as the information you have. The president of the United State gets prompts on information every morning at seven on the latest happenings he needs to know from experts in different fields. That is the spirit, take advantage and use every available information.
King David had strong and intelligent masterminds. With these mastermind he needn’t do everything.
He was a strong man yet he surrounded himself with stronger men. The people you let around you can
either lift you up or pull you down. He was intelligent yet he had the counsel of the wisest men around
This could seem easy, but very difficult to apply. Why? You may ask. Pride is the reason why. It’s impossible to learn with pride. A proud man is too high to notice opportunities that lie right under his
nose and all around him. "Information is the seed for an idea, and only grows when it's watered.” Heinz V. Bergen
