#RCS 1: Power & Control Obsessed
Are you self-centered, egocentric, insensitive or inconsiderate in your approach? Do you have this air of superiority attitude? Do you see yourself as a self-made man, self-made business tycoon, self-made professional?
The truth is there is NO self-made man anywhere because we all are product of influence.
You see, Only the combined effort of many people (Synergy), with the direct result of GOD’s Blessings makes a person/ company a success.
In driving the point home. A talk show conference represented by brands of the well accomplished business leaders and renowned professionals I was opportune to listen to included brands like:
Jeremiah.10:23 brand, Proverbs.16:25 brand, James.4:13-17 brand, Ecclesiastes.2:26 brand, James.1:17 brand, Deutoronomy.8:17-18 brand, James.4:13-17 brand, Luke.12:13-21 brand, Philippians.2:5-8 brand!
And here are some of what they said:
” If you start thinking to yourselves, “I did all this. And all by myself. I’m rich. It’s all mine!”—well, think again. Remember that GOD, your God, gave you the strength to produce all this wealth so as to confirm the covenant that he promised to your ancestors—as it is today.” – Deutoronomy.8 Brand
“O Lord [pleads Jeremiah in the name of the people], I know that [the determination of] the way of a man is not in himself; it is not in man [even in a strong man or in a man at his best] to direct his [own] steps”. – Jeremiah Brand
“There is a way that seems right to a man and appears straight before him, but at the end of it is the way of death.” – Proverbs Brand
” And now I have a word for you who brashly announce, “Today—at the latest, tomorrow—we’re off to such and such a city for the year. We’re going to start a business and make a lot of money.” You don’t know the first thing about tomorrow. You’re nothing but a wisp of fog, catching a brief bit of sun before disappearing. Instead, make it a habit to say, “If the Master wills it and we’re still alive, we’ll do this or that.”
As it is, you are full of your grandiose selves. All such vaunting self-importance is evil. In fact, if you know the right thing to do and don’t do it, that, for you, is evil.” – James4 Brand
” So, my very dear friends, don’t get thrown off course. Every desirable and beneficial gift comes out of heaven. The gifts are rivers of light cascading down from the Father of Light. There is nothing deceitful in God, nothing two-faced, nothing fickle. He brought us to life using the true Word, showing us off as the crown of all his creatures.” – James.1 Brand
” Let this same attitude and purpose and [humble] mind be in you which was in Christ Jesus: [Let Him be your example in humility:] …” – Philippians.2 Brand
Again, there is No such thing as self-made man. Obsession for power and control are TRAPS with huge capacity of ruining an empire and destroying promising career!
Look out for them and avoid them like War!
