4 Principles That Birth Possibilities

January 30, 2018
Have you ever heard someone say “what’s done in the dark will come into the light?” God tapped me on the shoulder the other day and wanted me to share with others some of the things that I have doing in the community and behind the scenes on a regular basis.
I’m no better than you and I’m just here to share with you how I keep turning my lessons into blessings with 4 Principles That Birth Possibilities. The 4 Principles are nothing that you can do for yourself but you must do them for others and directly or indirectly you will see others start doing them for you.
Principle #1 – Open a Door. When I am about to go into a building I look to see if anyone is in my view and if they are I open the door for them. The lesson with this blessing is that the more and more I open doors for people the more and more doors will be opened for me.
Principle #2 – Say Thank You. After a door is opened for you simply say “Thank you.” The lesson with this blessing is that when people feel appreciated your life will be elevated. When most have to run out in the street to compete this simple strategy can keep your blessings on repeat.
Principle #3 – Wish Others Well. When I wake up each morning I understand that as a person of color that I have to work twice as hard and be three times as good and at the end of the day we can still turn on the news and hear and see more negative stories than positive ones. God challenged me to look into the eyes of men that look just like me and simply say “I wish you well.” I love all people of all races, religions and creeds but the trials and tribulations of Black Men is overdue and they may never hear “wish you well” on the evening news. The blessing in this lesson is that the men I meet and greet all say thank you for wishing me well and for opening up a door to brotherhood.
Principle #4 – Buy items for strangers – The next time you are in line at a store and you have some extra change in your pocket, purse or wallet look at the customer in front of you and the one in the back of you to see if you can afford to buy your goods and all of theirs. I laughed when God first challenged me to at least try it once and when I did it I started to get blessings directly and indirectly. When you can try and do it at least one time and do it for others that do not know you and for others that could not pay you back even if they wanted to too. The blessing in the lesson is that somethings you can do for free but to break down walls and get breakthroughs somethings will cost a fee.
Try one of the 4 Principles That Birth Possibilities and let me know how your life begins to grow, chance or even transform.
