My inspiration today is about¬†how you can increase your personal capacity. I’d like to explain that concept¬†by using a cup and a bucket; if you have a cup full of capacity¬†but wanted a¬†bucket full of resource, there‚Äôs no way you could contain a bucket full of¬†resource into your cup full of capacity.
I believe that it happens¬†this way, as taught by Eddie Windsor: if your abilities + your resource + your¬†stewardship are increased, it automatically equals increased¬†capacity. Let’s¬†just go through those three things one by one‚Ä¶
Firstly, your¬†abilities.¬†You¬†can increase your abilities, such as your knowledge, your skills, your gifting.¬†What is your gifting?¬†
For me, it was property. I know property, I’ve¬†learnt a¬†lot about property, I’ve got skills in that area. I’ve now got over forty years¬†of experience in dealing with purchasing property including where to look and¬†what¬†to do. Because I‚Äôve invested in educating myself in that area.¬†
Where could¬†you educate yourself to up-skill your ability? Everybody’s got a gift, and I’d¬†like to encourage¬†you to start learning and¬†¬†educating yourself. Be a student for life in¬†the area of your passion! You can increase your abilities.
Secondly, your¬†resource.¬†If¬†you look after your resource, ask yourself ‚ÄúHow much money do I have? How much equity¬†do I have? What are my assets?‚ÄĚ Your resource¬†right now is, in other words,¬†your capital, your wealth, your reserves, your revenues. Whatever that is, that¬†is your resource right now.
Finally, your¬†stewardship.¬†This is how careful you are with your current resource or how you care for what¬†you’ve already got in your hand and how you nurture the¬†abilities that you’ve¬†already got. This is important because this¬†does¬†influence your mindset toward money.¬†
If you increase your skill, your knowledge¬†base, your ability,¬†and you increase your resources, even if it’s just one step¬†at a time,¬†and¬†your stewarding that¬†very well, then a bucket-load of blessing can come your way.
Preparation always proceeds opportunity and promotion.
If you’re prepared and an opportunity¬†comes, you can move.
If you’re spending more than¬†you earn now, what are you going to do when millions are going through your¬†hands? We have to be able to up-skill ourselves and increase¬†our ability. When¬†we do that and we’re stewarding very well, everything we’ve got, both our¬†abilities and our resource, increased capacity will automatically follow.
I began my¬†journey of wealth creation passionately 16 years ago. I figured out that I was¬†very passionate about property, that I had an ability to see a good deal and¬†that¬†property was something that I understood. After all these years I‚Äôve¬†stayed passionate and educated myself in regard to property.
That’s my encouragement to¬†you today my Money Mindset Movers; let’s increase our ability, let’s increase¬†our resource, let’s increase our stewardship and increase our¬†capacity so that¬†we can carry a bucket-load full of blessing and fit it into a much greater¬†increase in your capacity!
‚ÄúWhen your abilities and¬†your resources are given proper stewardship, an increased capacity¬†naturally follow.‚ÄĚ ‚Äď Eddie Windsor
‚Äú‚ÄôFor the kingdom of heaven is like a man traveling to a far country, who¬†called his own servants and delivered his goods to them. And to one he gave¬†five talents, to¬†another two, and to another one, to each according to his own¬†ability‚Ä¶‚Äô‚ÄĚ¬† Matthew 25:14-15 NKJV
Mindset to move:¬†I am a student for life
Ask yourself:¬†What¬†abilities do you have that you could put to work?
