Prepare Yourself

Wise men are praised for their wisdom. Pr 14:24

The bible says, “Wise men are praised for their wisdom.” So keep learning. Knowledge in most major fields is exploding, and if you don’t stay current you’ll be left behind. Repeating the same lessons over and over means you’re not learning enough. Study those who have succeeded where you want to succeed, in order to know what to do and what not to do. prepare yourself

U.S. Admiral Hyman Rickover said, “Learn from the mistakes of others; you’ll never live long enough to make them all yourself.” So, with that I want to share a few points that might help you grow and learn. 

(1) Respect those with experience and expertise greater than your own. Instead of shrinking away from them, reach for them. The Bible says, “Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to help others.” (1Pe 4:10) We all struggle in certain areas; be careful lest your insecurity be misinterpreted as arrogance. 

(2) Become a good listener. Don’t try to impress people by seeking to be their intellectual equal. If you find yourself in a discussion that intimidates you, ask questions, talk only about what you know, listen attentively, and the next time you meet, you’ll be that much further ahead. 

(3) The more you prepare yourself, the more opportunities you’ll get. Don’t come to class unless you’ve done your homework. When God starts taking you higher, prepare your speech, your wardrobe, and your mind. Consult a trusted friend who understands where you are, and where you need to go. If you can’t find one, read up until you grasp the basics. Google can be your friend. “A King rejoices in a wise servant.” (Pr 14:35) The more prepared you are, the more God will open doors of opportunity for you.
