The Law of Addition: Adding Value To Others (Part Two)

In the last Post, we established that 'Value' is anything we can give to or impart in others that can make them better. Now, how do we make ourselves valuable? In other words, how do you add value to yourself? 
There are several ways to do this. One easy way is to equip yourself with everything you can, with which you can bless others. This could be by reading books, learning new skills or increasing your knowledge and expertise in a particular field. 

You are able to add value to people when you have a "OTHERS-CENTERED" mindset. You truly add value to people when you 'put them first'. A classical example is Jesus Christ. When it wasn't convenient, when He should be having a break to mourn his cousin, John, People came around to be healed and ministered to. Guess what He did? He healed them! Took care of them and ministered to them. In other words, He PUT THEM FIRST! See Matthew 14:1-14.

Finally, Why is it so important to add value to people? It is highly important because what really makes our life count is how much of a blessing we are to others. When we're gone, at the end of our lives, it's the value we've been able to add to others that really lives on after us. We truly Live when our existence is a Blessing to other people.

We're Empowered to Empower Others

One important truth we must all come to terms with in our world today is that as long as we're alive, we'll always be confronted by one challenge or the other. It is childish and immature to think or believe that life, at any given time will be trouble-free. It is then imperative that we understand that we face challenges so we can become stronger and grow to be who God created us to be. 
However, God promises to strengthen and comfort us when we go through trials. He promised to be with us when we go through any storm or fire. 
"When you pass through the waters, I will be with you, and through the rivers, they will not overwhelm you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned or scorched, nor will the flame kindle upon you" Isaiah 43:2
When God does, He then expects us to extend the comfort and strength to others. We are to Empower Others with what God gives us. Just as we know that we can't give what we don't have, we are expected to pass on to o…

HUSTLER OR ENTREPRENEUR?

Earlier today, I asked friends on my Whatsapp time-line the difference between a Hustler and an Entrepreneur. Of course, there was a plethora of answers as different people gave very distinct meanings in response. What surprised me the most was that no two people gave the same answer. Everyone had a distinct point of view.
However, for the sake of clarity and simplicity I decided to curate most of the responses as well as my personal observations into an article.
First and foremost, a Hustler is someone who "make strenuous efforts to obtain" money or profit from different areas or businesses engagements. An entrepreneur however is one who starts a business (or businesses), manages it to produce tangible value and make profit from it. 
You see, it's easy to assume there's not much difference between the two personalities but there are. 
While Kemi, a LASU Undergraduate perceives the difference in the freedom an Entrepreneur enjoys compared to a Hustler, Success, a Bl…
