(Proverbs. 20:13). Love not sleep, lest thou come to poverty; open thine eyes, and thou shalt be satisfied with bread.
In continuation of our discussion, takeover is the domination of your environment with your product and vision. Takeover is not possible until you are financially independent and successful. Power to create and enhance your productivity is what determines your level of influence and impact on the earth. The major way the devil make people poor is to make them clueless. Below are more keys to financial takeover:
4. Planning: Planning is the selection of objectives and policies for the future. Planning is deciding in advance what to do, who to do it, when to do it and how to do it. It involves the process of deciding today against tomorrow. Planning saves times and money and consequently, reduces, if not totally eliminates borrowing and lack. Those whose primary aim in life is pleasure, spends their later years in pressure, while those who plan their life, spend their later years in pleasure.
5. Wise Spending: Avoid excessive spending; only buy things that are necessary. List your needs in the order of importance and make sure you follow the order. Men are in shapes, shoes are in sizes, but lives are in stages. The key to effective financial freedom is the ability to apply the following:
a. What is needed that must be purchased
b. What is wanted that should be purchased; and
c. What is optional that can be postponed.
6. Financial Control: If you want to be financially independent, control your taste. Romans 12:16b says “Mind not high things, but condescend to men of low estate”. Try to avoid buying things on credit just to please someone, to show class or to belong. Friendship is not by force, it is by choice. Therefore, avoid high class companions that can influence your spending habit (read Proverbs 25:28). To get to the height of financial success, you must know the level you are, the level you want to be and how to get to that level. Define your goal and pursue it.
