Proverbs 12:24 Work hard and become a leader; be lazy and become a slave (NIV)

Insight and Highlight

You can change the world around you by building yourself, setting your mindset, correct your mentality.

Scripture Commentaries

The mindset of a person may determine how far or how well he can go in life.

The lion is known as the king of the jungle. In most cases, she is referred to as the strongest animal (Prov 30:30) yet it is not the biggest in size like the elephant.

When the lion sees the elephant, she sees prey/food coming her way. However, when an elephant sees her, the elephant runs because the elephant's mindset is that a predator has come. The same mindset applies to any animal much bigger than the lion.

Animal world does show us the lion is, after all not, beyond killing by its targeted prey when the intended prey resisted in a fight for survival. It is a mindset some of these animals have: a refusal to die.

If as a follower now, you have a mindset of attaining and are pressing towards the mark for the prize of a high calling (Phlp 3:12, 14), you will walk, comport yourself, after the manner and mindset of a leader. How?

First, of it all, is the mind of a servant's heart. You will love to get "in the trenches", inspire, encourage others.

Second, you will invest time in what you are delegated to do.

Third, in your capacity as a follower, when you have others in mind, you will lead as if you were in the leader's office, to motivate them.

Remember as leaders are born so also leaders are made. If you motivate others with a leader's mindset, it will not take God time to place you as a leader, Luke 16:10.

Discover yourself. It is difficult for you to discover others if you have not discovered yourself.

You can motivate others when you are able to motivate yourself to your full potential.

Remorse corner

Are you discouraged, lacking motivation?

You can overcome discouragement and lack of motivation if you remember, you cannot be motivated to do what you are not determined to do. Therefore determination is key.

Call to Word action

You can change your mindset.

Remember this: motivation is never there when you need it. You may not be able to motivate yourself or you cannot find the motivation or find someone to motivate you.

You can revolutionize your mindset and mentality by releasing yourself to the Spirit Rom 12:1.

The Christian clarion duty

If you embrace this practical idea: "you never going to be motivated to do what is needful for you to do, but you will do it anyway" it will change your life.


Lord, help me. Let me soar high and above.

Let me fulfill great potentials in Jesus name.

Good morning all and have a blessed day today.

God bless you.
