“Prepare while others are daydreaming” is a powerful statement made by William Arthur Ward in his Blueprint For Achievement.

H. Jackson Browne said:

“The best preparation for tomorrow is doing your best today.”

What preparations have you made for today?  Have you written your to-do list for the tomorrow?

Robert H Schuller said:

“Spectacular achievement is always preceded by unspectacular preparation.”

I want you to write down the next five words. . .if you get nothing else from this blog…these five words when properly applied will change your destiny.

Here it is.

Ecclesiastes 3:22 in the Contemporary English Version says:

We were meant to enjoy our work, and that's the best thing we can do. We can never know the future.”

According to a recent Gallup workplace study over 70% of American employees DO NOT like their jobs.  That’s not good or for that matter…scriptural.

If we settle for a job just to earn a paycheck. . .with the attitude of doing just enough to get by. . .we’ll never be happy in the job.

To me, it’s real simple. . .if you don’t like what you’re doing or where you’re working. . .stop complaining and do something about it.

Here are seven must read talking points for your success in the workplace or marketplace.

First, stop talking negatively about your supervisor or your job.

Let me ask you a question. . .now be honest. . .have you ever complained about a job, your supervisor or the management of the company?   If so, STOP IT NOW.

When you speak negatively about someone or something. . .you are empowering the enemy to further torment you.

I’m reminded of an airplane flight I took some years ago.  I was sitting in first class and the two men across the aisle were discussing how they were going to become filthy rich.

One of the men noticed that I had more than a passing interest in their conversation.  He directed his comments at me and inquired, “Do you want to be filthy rich too?”  I said, “No, I don’t want to be filthy at anything.”

Then I quoted Proverbs 10:22:

“The blessing of the Lord, it maketh rich, and he addeth no sorrow with it.”

I said for me to be filthy would be sorrowful.

The man said “You must be one of those name it and claim Christians.”

I said if it’s in the Bible I will name it and claim the promise as mine.

He said, “Don’t get me wrong, I’m a Christian.”  Then he quoted Psalm 118:24 which says:
