The Price

One of the most important things to consider and understand  if you want to be successful individual is that everything comes with a price tag.

Price can  be interpreted in terms of money, time, or valuable item, it is something that could be used in exchange for something else, depending on the value you place on it.

Even you, have a price but it all depends on what you are made of, how developed you are. You can’t be a raw material and have the price tag of a finished product (nah!) Let’s not forget  freedom has its price too , it’s boldly stated on its forehead.

Apparently, your potentials determine the price on you, don’t be surprised at how people rate you, it’s all about what they can see in you.

The grave has been said to be the richest place on earth because a lot of people died without discovering whom they are and what they suppose to contribute  to their generation. There is no excuse for not discovering whom you are and not imparting into your generation for if it’s going to be its up to you and you alone.

Before you begin to put a value on yourself I will ask you this basic question “what are you in existence for?”

As simple as this question may seem a lot of people might not be capable of answering the question.

How do I  now put a high price on myself or rather how do i increase my value? For these are part of the things that you must observe and do put a value on yourself.

* Discover whom you are: Who are you? You are more than what you think you are. As Randy Alcorn’s said “you are the descendant of tiny cells of primordial protoplasm that washed up on an ocean beach ten billion years ago. You are the blind and arbitrary product of time, chance and natural forces. You are a mere grab bag of atomic particles…. you are flying through lifeless space with no purpose, no direction, no control, and no destiny but final destruction… in short, you came from nothing, you are going nowhere and you will end your life cosmic journey beneath six feet of dirt, where all that is you will become food for bacteria and rot with worms” Definitely this is not whom you are. You are an image of God.

You are a creative being, embedded with great innovations,  it’s left to you to make use of them. Like ‘Peak’ would say “It’s in you”

* Know what you want: What do you want to do with your life. A man who does not know what he wants will be handed anything. Many people are where they are because they don’t know what they and thereby becoming subjected to stagnancy. Some are directed by people’s opinion and views instead of been directed by what they want. Know what you want out of life and see your value increase.

*Know where you are going: Your destination matters a lot, when you place a target, you will definitely try to meet up with your set target. At the same time, don’t be in too much haste so you don’t miss it as well. Don’t be busy doing nothing and don’t run another man race.
