E–» Encourage People: Encouragement is one of the most powerful tools in the quest for relevance and accomplishment. Encouraging someone is like injecting that person with adrenaline shots that give physical energy and psychological shots that give mental energy. To encourage someone is to give support, confidence and most importantly hope to that person. Its the hope for a better tomorrow that keeps us active and makes us determined to make it. Encouraging someone might be the boost of hope they need to carry on. Encouraging people also has a way of encouraging you.
F–» Focus on People: Businesses have learnt that focusing on people is the best way to achieve growth. Governments have learnt that focusing on people is the best way of reaching out and making an impact. Pastors have learnt that focusing on people is the best way to get souls saved. Musicians have learnt that focusing on people is the best way to sell records and make money.
No matter how smart or gifted Bill Gates is, he will never get anything done at Microsoft if he doesn’t focus on people and surround himself with the right employees. We can never go anywhere in life without focusing on people and make sure you focus on the right people.
G–» Give People: We have been wired to be selfish in nature, we are always looking for what to take, take and take. We are not looking for avenues to give to people in terms of gifts, our talents, our time, our money. It says in Acts 20:35 that “it is more blessed to give than to receive”. Look for people to give to because as the Bible says you receive more blessings when you give out than when you receive. Remember, God loves a cheerful giver (1 Corinthians 9:7).
H–» Help People: Helping people is one of the most fulfilling things someone can ever venture into. Why do you think Billionaires like Warren Buffet and Bill Gates give out billions of dollars. They give money out to help people in need which in turns gives them a feeling of importance. Helping people is a way of life. It gives you a sense of value and importance on the society. John Bunyan said and I quote “you have not lived today until you have done something for someone who can never repay you.”
