It is the way you see things that determines your actions and in actions... it is what you focus that gets your attention, and what gets your attention determine your destination



Remember,we are still discussing how to structure your life for opportunities.

The second thing that enabled Joseph to connect his opportunity was because…

ii. He knew there is a better destination ahead of him:

Joseph knew he is not meant to die in the prison, that was why he told the man to mention him to Pharaoh
Listen to me, You are on a mission here on earth. Hence, you have to take your life serious and be purposeful. Live your life as a miracle going somewhere to happen.
This means that you have to consciously add value to your worth here on earth daily.

Therefore, don’t live your life like a spectator, life is not a funfare or picnic centre but a race where you have to be a participator in order to be recognized.


iii. He recognized that man as his God sent link to the palace, which was why he never missed that opportunity.

Beloved, you need a clear sense of purpose to attract and recognize opportunities in life. In fact, a clear sense of purpose and direction will keep you motivated, inspired courage in you and open your heart and eye to opportunities around you.

“32 And David said to Saul, Let no man’s heart fail because of him; thy servant will go and fight with this Philistine… 34 And David said unto Saul, Thy servant kept his father’s sheep, and there came a lion, and a bear, and took a lamb out of the flock: {lamb: or, kid} 35 And I went out after him, and smote him, and delivered it out of his mouth: and when he arose against me, I caught him by his beard, and smote him, and slew him. 36 Thy servant slew both the lion and the bear: and this uncircumcised Philistine shall be as one of them, seeing he hath defied the armies of the living God.” 1 Sam.17:32,34,35,36

Where does David acquire those courage and experience he put to use to grab the opportunity of bringing Goliath down? It was acquired in the jungle. Instead of David to spent his staying in the jungle lamenting about loneliness or become demoralized for being neglected by everybody, he was busy developing himself because he knew he is not going to die in the jungle. It is the way you see things that determines your actions and in actions.

Let me tell you something about problem; it is like a log of wood that is spread over a big stream to link the passers from one side of the river to the other side. So, if one gets there and see it as a bridge for crossing over, I tell you that he will cross without any problem. But if another man get there and look at it as an ordinary log of wood that is spread over a big river, fear will crept in and loose the courage of crossing. Even, if he ever make attempt of crossing the sea, he will step into the log of wood with fear, which will causing him to focus his attention on the flowing of the river rather than focusing on the other side of the river. However, it is what you focus that gets your attention, and what gets your attention determine your destination. So, such a person will definitely loose his footing and sank into the river.

Beloved, never see what is opposing your desire and aspiration as a problem but as a bridge that can link you to the better side of your life.

Make effort to convert your challenges and adversities to a bridge of stepping into the next phase of your life, and this can only be possible by looking beyond your natural limitations and circumstances to the future you desire.
