Dedication makes you outstanding-Benjamin Zulu

Connections may give you a quick start but all they can do is open a door for you. What you do with the opportunity is entirely based on your attributes. That’s why people who have big positions and privileged connections get very scared when they see someone from below them coming up with sheer determination. They know this kind of rising is internal and cannot be stopped.

You may be a nurse in a facility, for instance, and because of your dedication your popularity begins to rise among patients and the administration. You’re more reliable and self-driven, and you start to be entrusted with more duties. You teach yourself administration and people skills and your competence begins to spread beyond the wards.

All of a sudden some doctors want to make you feel inferior and to remind you that they’re a rank above you. But since you’re not competing with anyone you politely give way and avoid any confrontations. You just love your job and you don’t understand why people are unnerved by your presence.

Some may even try to cook up very malicious rumours about you, that you’re moving around with bosses if you’re a lady, or interns if you’re a man. Just to destroy your name and ‘cut you down to size.’

Solution? If you don’t have godfathers to connect you and protect you in the corporate world, you must rely on Father God. You must do what David did to get himself to the Palace. While he was a herdsboy he did it excellently and expanded his skill set while fully relying on his inner guide. His biological father despised him and his brothers hated him. Yet he still rose to the apex of his society and earned an eternal legacy by following the simple rule of single-minded dedication.

You can too.

One of the officials said, “I know one of Jesse’s sons from Bethlehem who can play well. He’s a courageous man and a warrior. He has a way with words, he is handsome, and the Lord is with him.” (1 Samuel 16:18)
