QUOTE OF THE DAY: “A STRATEGIC THINKER SEES THE FUTURE MORE CLEARLY THAN HE SEES THE MISERIES OF THE IMMEDIATE PRESENT”
Memory Verse: “And said to the entire Israelite assembly, The land we passed through and explored is exceedingly good”. Numbers 14:7.
Except you are a strategic thinker, pressures, hardships and challenges of life will squeeze your destiny to irrelevance. The only way companies, individuals, religious organizations, families, nations can survive the present and ever increasing social and economic challenges of our time is to constantly engage in strategic thinking.
To think strategically means; to think outside the box, to think about the future now, to take initiative; to be mentally smarter than your competitors; to engage in thinking that will put you on top; to think solution to problems in advance; to embrace thoughts that helps you get much done within a limited period of time, at a minimum cost and so on.
For instance, if you do not want to sink in the pit of poverty, it must start from your thinking. Two brothers went to India sometime ago. When they got there, they both sat down somewhere and watched the crowd moving – every one of them on bare foot. One said, ‘oh there is so much poverty in this place! These people are suffering’ but the other one said to himself, ‘I think this people (so great a population) can make me a millionaire, all I need to do is to bring shoes and sell them’.

Your life pattern is a product of your thought pattern. I do not mean thinking about deficiencies and problems. This type of thinking cripples a sense of reasoning. But I am referring to thinking that will intelligently get you out of your present battle, sufferings, failures and zoom you forward. A thought that will transform what God has placed on your inside to your outside.
Strategic thinking leads to innovations, it elicits solutions to problems. Create enough time daily to think. As you think; develop a picture of your thought and apply your thoughts to practical issues of life. I prophesy supernatural speed on your life’s journey. You will get there!
