10 PILLARS TO BUILD FROM VALUE Orientation

Hi, I know you’ve missed me, well, I’m back and I hope nothing takes me away again. Today, we will be discussing the preceding posts on value orientation (if you have not read it, click VALUE ORIENTATION, (Read it now!!! else you will feel lost ). There are salient points in the story that I believe would be relevant to you and these points are important because they will support and strengthen you in your self development journey and the rate of improvement will alarm you.

The ten pillars are:

  1. Be eager to learn and engage in further research. Never feed on incomplete information or haphazard information. Get your facts right. Further and recent knowledge/information is priceless.
  2. Find S2: When you identify a problem, find the source and solution. Be a creative solution provider not a professional complaint director.
  3. Be well equipped before undertaking any task. It puts you far ahead. Not everyone has to start from scratch. With information you can start from the middle to the top.
  4. Never be in a hurry to make money. Nothing good comes easy. Be patient and work for every penny you earn directly or indirectly, be sure you deserve it. Fast money evaporates quickly. Build lasting empires and assets.
  5. Decisions are integral in defining and shaping your life and its eventual outcome. Never be in a hurry to make decisions. Take out time to ponder, weigh your options and come up with a decision even if it is a risk-taking decision.
  6. Never base your decisions on emotions. Emotions cloud judgments. Never make a decision under pressure (except you have to), stress, extreme excitement, depression, anger etc. because you will most likely make a bad decision.
  7. Set out an accurate plan, with clear goals and strategies on how to execute a task before undertaking the task.
  8. Ignorance is much more expensive than the price of education. If you do not know the value of a thing, the worth and potential of that thing will remain vague to you and might hinder your success or advancement. Knowledge of value guarantees advancement.
  9. Be aware of and familiar with the potential and treasures in your vicinity before embarking on an ultimate treasure search in a strange land. A goat at hand is better than a lion in the forest
  10. Never give up!!! Suicide is never a solution. Face your challenges. Don’t run away from them. People with the best success stories had terrible experiences and challenges that toughened them up and prepared them for the positions they are now. e.g Oprah Winfrey

…He said ‘I want a mine of diamonds’ and he lay awake all night.

Early the next morning he sought the priest. The priest always gets crossed when awakened early in the morning. Ali was too curious to care, he shook the priest out of his dreams  and said to him

‘Will you tell me where I can find diamonds?’

‘Diamonds! What do you want diamonds for?

‘Why? I wish to be immensely rich’

‘Well, then, go and find them and then you can have them’

‘But I don’t know where to go’

‘Well, if you find a river that runs through white sand, between high mountains in those white sands you will always find diamonds. I don’t believe there’s any such river’

‘Of course there are plenty of them across the globe. All I have to do is go and find them and have them, I will go’ Ali concluded.

 

He sold his 3 farms, collected the money and left his family under the care of a neighbor and he went in search of the diamonds, but never found anything. He came to Palestine, then wandered on into Europe, and at last when his money was spent and he was in rags, wretchedness, and poverty, he stood on the shore of that bay at Barcelona, in Spain when one day a tidal wave came rolling in between the Pillars of Hercules and the poor, afflicted, suffering, dying man could not resist the temptation to cast himself in the incoming tide and sank beneath its foaming crest never to rise in this life again.

The man who purchased Ali’s barren farm and house, went to the farm one day and tried to make ridges, as he dug, his hoe struck a stone. Ali’s successor noticed a curious flash of light from the white sands of the stream. He pulled out a stone having an eye of light reflecting all the hues of the rainbow. He took the pebble into the house and put it on the mantel piece and forgot all about it.

A few days later the priest came and visited Ali’s successor, and the moment he opened that drawing room door he saw a flash of light and, he rushed to it and shouted ‘has Ali returned? Here is a diamond!!!’

‘Oh no, Ali has not returned and that is not a diamond. That is nothing but a stone I found right here in our own garden.’

‘But’, said the priest, ‘I tell you I know a diamond when I see it. I know positively that this is a diamond’

They rushed to the stream in that old barren farm and found a shack buried there and Ali’s successor became immensely rich and influential from the sales of diamond.

The points to derive will be stated next week.

Love,

Einsteinette.
