How to Get Promoted at Work

corp-ladder-400x265

The truth is that in any organization, no one human being is indispensable. Even the owners of businesses are not indispensable. Steve Jobs was kicked out the first time. Steve Jobs died the second time. So there are three ways out of a company: by choice, by force, and well…in a box.

Mind Games

During my first year at the university, there was a course called General studies; that included general stuff (honestly I don’t remember). It was compulsory for all newbies. What I remember is the part called Logic, it was about analytical reasoning. Its purpose is to familiarize you with certain formal methods for representing and evaluating arguments and reasoning. These methods can be used not only for philosophy, but for any subject matter. Something like: “if Lola is a girl and she’s from Lagos, then Lola is a Female Nigerian (but it was more technical than this, with formulas at some instances)

Contentment and Prosperity

BalanceProsperity

There are enough bible passages in the bible to support the truth that God desires to meet the needs of His children and that He wants them financially stable. We see the likes of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob who were contending with nations. Abraham for example fought an army of four kings to get his nephew back. That’s four nations brought down by one man and we all know it takes money to fight a war. All you need do is look at the US defence budget to get the picture. A lot of the principles of financial success can be seen in the bible. But the question is: To what end?

If I call you a show off, I’m sure you won’t appreciate it, even if indeed you are. I mean to be a show off is to behave in a way that is intended to attract attention or admiration, and that other people often find annoying. In other words, that means you are annoying. But is it always wrong to be a show off? Can we measure it before it gets a tad annoying?

You are very conscious of yourself and the things you do, you are struggling, you have fallen short, yes! You fell again, you have sinned even as a believer, you are hot and cold, sometimes neither in nor out, you want to do good things but you don’t, you try to love Jesus more, and read the Bible more, perhaps improved weekly service attendance will help, or a more suppressed social life. I know you are trying, so am I, but where does it end?

Hypocrite or Righteous?

“But if it is by grace (His unmerited favor and graciousness), it is no longer conditioned on works or anything men have done. Otherwise, grace would no longer be grace [it would be meaningless]” (Romans 11:6, AMP).

One of the devil’s most famous accusations is, “You’re a hypocrite!” Let’s say, for example, that you have a bad thought, or you lost your temper and acted out of character, or you missed reading your Bible for three straight days. He’ll come to accuse you of not being righteous, of being a hypocrite. So what’s the proper response when your righteousness is under attack? What do you do when the voices of accusation show up?
