May 26: You Are Worth More Than Your Salary!

Proverbs 22:29

Seest thou a man diligent in his business? he shall stand before kings; he shall not stand before mean men.

Ephesians 5:15-16

15 See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise,

16 Redeeming the time, because the days are evil.

Salary is what your boss or employer deems fit to pay you based on your productivity and the value you are adding to him and/or your organization. But there is far much more in you than your employer or boss has seen or appreciated because your current level of productivity is not all that you can afford. Your potential is worth much more than your productivity. Don’t rest on your oars! Drive yourself beyond your comfort zone. Success is not within your comfort zone; it is in the “stretch zone”. Stretch – that’s the rule of the game! Nothing good comes out of convenience other than failure! Put your company under obligation to you. Keep society under obligation to you! Put the world in debt to you! Don’t live like you are sorry about life! Be a real contributor to life. Don’t just exist! Live! Make the world a better place because you lived in it and played your part!

Remember, selfishness cramps your ability to succeed! Don’t live for self! Self is too small to live for! A day is enough to live for self! A lifetime is too much to be devoted to self! If you really want to live for self, you don’t need more than a day to do so. A day long lifespan is enough to live for self. If you are older than one day, that’s proof that your life is bigger than you. That’s proof that self is not all there is to live for, but many selves. You are a global figure; your destiny is bigger than your locality, your country, and even your continent! Be bigger than the blunders you make or have made; live big, be big and surpass your experience ever increasingly! Learn to love others. Only those who love count! Be and stay on the giving side of life! Forgive those who hate you. Never stoop low to their level and hate with them. You are bigger than them and their hatred, for greater is He that’s in you than He that’s in the world.

In the Name of Jesus Christ, I declare that I am far bigger on the inside than my performance on the outside. I can do much more than I have done so far through Christ who strengthens me. I am worth far much more than my salary, and I’m working at my true worth daily in Jesus’ Name! Amen.
