"Plans fail for lack of counsel, but with man
advisers they succeed." Pr 15:22 NIV
A good adviser does three things: they observe you,
instruct you, and motivate you. At first, the thought
of having someone evaluate you may be
intimidating. But think about it: people are watching
you anyway, so why not have a good adviser among
the crowd? Here is a list of some areas in which you
might consider inviting an adviser to evaluate you.
These things are not options, they're essentials:
spiritual development, personal discipline, family
relationships, decision making, handling finance,
conflict resolution, picking the right people,
breaking bad habits and establishing good ones,
goal setting and planning for the future. If you're
serious about succeeding, look for an environment
where you will be mentored, not just paid. Initially,
what you learn is more important than what you
earn, because what you learn early determines what
you earn later. What you don't know can hurt you
and put a lid on your potential. Opening doors of
evaluation is something you owe to yourself and
those who depend on you. And don't let it stop with
you. Pass on what you've been given to somebody
else. Jesus said, "Freely ye have received, freely
give" (Mt 10:8). "But I'm too young, nobody is going
to take me seriously" you say. Paul told Timothy,
"Don't let anyone look down on you because you are
young, but set an example" (1Ti 4:12 NIV). You're
not responsible for knowing everything; you're just
responsible for sharing what you know with others.
As you pour into them what God and others have
poured into you, they will go further and faster too
So ask God for a good adviser and become one to
somebody else.
