However, you can only grow to the extent that your mind and intelligence allow. Just like you can only carry a certain amount of weight based on your physical strength and capacity, you can only earn a certain amount of wealth based on your mental capacity.
Proverbs 23:1-35. So, build greater mental capacity to build greater wealth and riches.
🎯1. Enlarge your capacity to control your desires and appetite. Proverbs 23:1-3. When thou sittest to eat with a ruler, consider diligently what is before thee:  And put a knife to thy throat, if thou be a man given to appetite.  Be not desirous of his dainties: for they are deceitful meat.
Many have died by eating the wrong things, eating in the wrong place, and or desiring what does not help their health.
👉🏾There are things we must eat to stay healthy and functional.
👉🏾There are also things we must avoid if we desire to live healthily.
When you see free food, drinks, and wine, do not eat and drink like there is no tomorrow.
🙏🏼Control your desires and appetite knowing that soon, you will have these in abundance.
🎯2. Build the capacity to manage and multiply your resources. Proverbs 23:4-5. Labour not to be rich: cease from thine own wisdom.  Wilt thou set thine eyes upon that which is not? for riches certainly make themselves wings;
They fly away as an eagle toward heaven. Working hard is not enough. You must build the capacity to save, budget, invest and manage your income wisely.
👉🏾If you have worked for 10 years or more without any real evidence of having worked, something is very very wrong.
👉🏾If you have worked for 10 years without significant savings or investment, you need to build capacity to manage your income.
👉🏾If you have worked for 10 years and still find it difficult to pay basic bills, you need to build resource management and multiplication capacity.
Take this seriously today and do the needful as elaborated below.
WHAT MUST YOU DO?
🎯3. Build the capacity of your mind to think and think appropriately. Proverbs 23:7 _For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he: Eat and drink, saith he to thee; but his heart is not with thee._ If you fail to think, you will stink! Think and think through. People who do not think are very lazy.
👉🏾Think of what else to do to make a difference in your career and business.
👉🏾Think of how to be better in your work and business.
👉🏾Think of innovative and creative ways to increase your income and productivity.
👉🏾Think wealth, riches, and better life.
🎯4. Build the capacity to be content and to respect godly cultures. Proverbs 23:10-11. Remove not the old landmark; and enter not into the fields of the fatherless:  For their redeemer is mighty; he shall plead their cause with thee.
Stay within the rules, regulations and standards of your career or business. Do not take what does not belong to you.
🎯5. Build your capacity to think big, have big goals, and expect the best that God has for you. Proverbs 23:18 _For surely there is an end, and thine expectation shall not be cut off.
If you do not expect it, you may not see it. If you do not expect it, God may not bring it to pass. So, expect good things and your expectations will not be cut off.
👉🏾What are your expectations for this year – what good things do you expect?
👉🏾Expect good news. Expect good things. Expect what only God can deliver.
🎯6. Build your capacity to read, study and meditate on new ideas. Proverbs 23:23. Buy the truth, and sell it not; also wisdom, and instruction, and understanding.
👉🏾Invest in yourself. Buy the truth and sell it not. Buy books. Read books. Study books. Meditate on good ideas.
👉🏾Invest in your growth. Listen to great minds. Listen to people who have gone ahead of you. Use your YouTube (and similar platforms)to listen for free. Pay the price of discipline and good time management.
✍🏼As you read, study, meditate, build the capacity to write and document your thoughts. These journals have helped me and sometimes became books.
🎯7. Build your capacity to observe and be appropriately mentored. Proverbs 23:26 _My son, give me thine heart and let thine eyes observe my ways._ Expand your capacity by looking and learning from those who have gone ahead of you. Engage your heart to learn and improve.
🎯8. Build your capacity to stay long in improving your mind and thought processes. Proverbs 23:30-31. They that tarry long at the wine; they that go to seek mixed wine.
 Look not thou upon the wine when it is red when it giveth his color in the cup when it moveth itself aright. Expand your capacity to avoid dangerous habits and lifestyles.
Prayer. Lord, help me to build greater capacity for wealth and riches. Be blessed. Stay blessed. 🙏🏼 ©️The Excellent Ministry 2021
