While I typically write for a select audience as you might realize, the ideas I write about are designed to help my readers, in any part of the world arrive at conclusions that help them live phenomenal lives.
No matter the country you live in, some businesses are failure-proof with little or no need for go-to market strategies or promotional marketing.
These businesses deliver products and services that are ‘need-to-haves’ and by this, I mean things that are essentials like food and safety. Need to haves give you a sort of certainty that with little or no advertising, someone out there will need to eat or a place to stay that’s is affordable. Need-to-haves are your opportunity.
Want-to-haves however, are where most of the people venturing into business play. By ‘Want-to-haves’ I mean, things that are non-essential, things that people can actually do without like books, luxury goods and all-things that require some sort of advertising and promotional effort.
Now, the Bible says there is profit in all labor which for Christians is fantastic if you actually believe the Bible. So wouldn’t you rather start a business of ‘Need -to-haves’ than ‘Want-to-haves’?
I mean, if you started a diner in a place around a construction site or university campus, wouldn’t you be guaranteed business success almost instantly, particularly if your food is great and moderately priced?
Think about it:
Need-to-Have vs Want-to-Have
This may be shocking but true.
When many people get married, they do so to be happy. Nobody gets married for most of the reasons they tell you they want to get hitched for. Some people think they are in love while others do not want to be alone as they get older. And others still, get married because they feel they are of age and its definitely the right thing to do.
Well the shocking truth as many find is that the reason they got married was a spoof. It is why 50 percent of women regret their marriages. Marriage is not about happiness, rather it’s about growing.
It’s about growing into the person God designed you to be; that learning, loving and becoming that interdependent person who understands that marriage is a ‘give-and-take’ relationship; a support-and-be-supported framework among three people-God, your spouse and you.
But how does God come into the equation Nehi?
Simple. You use His word in the Bible as a standard for how you treat your spouse. For example, He says in Matthew 7: 1, ‘Do not condemn and criticize…’ Your role is to take that principle and apply it to your dealings with your spouse.
When you base your marriage on biblical principles, you literally invite God into it and trust me, He can calm every storm.
All of the problems you are faced with in your marriage right now can be carefully and deliberately overcome if you just make the adjustment that:
Marriage is a threesome.
