The worst thing that can happen to any man is to not be ready when the help he needs come. Too many people become engrossed with the lack of resources without getting prepare for that time of shinning. Some people are where they are in life right now not because they couldn’t access help but they weren’t prepared when the help came. If you will find yourself at the front porch of life live ready. You become your problem if you don’t solve the problems within your reach that doesn’t require external help.
If you want to be a business owner and you haven’t crafted your proposal and all that it takes to set it up, you are only a joker. You are qualified for help only when you have done everything you are supposed to do that doesn’t require funds. If you are a writer, does it cost funds to put all your write-ups in proper shape? If you are an upcoming artiste who’s ready to wax an album, does it cost you money to give the lyrics the best fit before you go to the studio? If you are a student ready to write an examination waiting for the registration or school fee, money won’t do the reading for you to mention but a few.
Whatever project you are embarking on, if you don’t prepare to the final point, you are setting up yourself for failure. If a sponsor comes to you now, would you say “I’m ready sir/ma…let’s go” or “please sir/ma…just give me today let me put finishing touch to it and get back to you by tomorrow.” As a writer/speaker, I have learnt to live ready. One of my best quotes is from Abraham Lincoln and perhaps you have seen me repeat it over time, he said “I will study and prepare perhaps my chance will come” Yes it will surely come but let it not meet you unprepared. Opportunities aren’t easy to come by, so get ready for them beforehand. Live ready, stay ready and you will become a finisher.
