Why you must start from the Grass Roots if you want to be a Winner.

He is who wants to start from the top run into the embrace of mediocrity and failure. In the end, it is easy to blame God, others, and whoever we may attribute our failures too but a look inward may show that the root cause is in our failure to prepare. Sunday Adelaja quipped, "The person who does the bare minimum, while expecting to accomplish the maximum is setting himself up for failure. That person has an attitude of doing nothing to get something, hoping to be lucky in the end."

WHAT IS PREPARATION (Starting from the Grass Roots)? 

Preparation is the ability to be ready before the time for any event of life by acquiring the needed knowledge, skills, training, and information and possibly experience in all vital areas of life that would be relevant for the one being prepared. Preparation is being ready for the eventual to avoid being taken unawares.

Preparation is to harness one's passion for something to develop steps to accomplishing a good outcome The etymology of this word reveals that pre' means before parade "make ready" Thus. Preparation is something you do before.

Preparation is the process of branding or to be re-branded for being equipped in all endeavors of life. It is a key element to achieving whatever one desires in life. Where preparation is lacking, failure, frustration, and defeat are the possible outcomes.

All great men in history had a solid preparation for what they set out to do. It is foolish for anyone to assume he could step into something worthwhile in life without the necessity to prepare for it. 

Therefore, we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking unto Jesus, the author, and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. 

We are admonished and challenged here because of the many witnesses that have gone before us, those who took time to prepare for what God would have them do in their lifetime, and how they got prepared by laying aside every weight and sin that could easily weigh them down and other things they had to endure, too. 

Jesus is shown here as the prime example for us to look to. He gave it all it took to truly be ready for life and living. He endured the cross, he despised the shame, reproach, and ignominy associated with the cross and looked up with joy to the outcome.

Anything of lasting value is worth being adequately prepared for “History favors the aggressor,” so goes the adage. Similarly, life never fails to honor a prepared person.

The preparations of the heart in man and the answer of the tongue is from the lord. There are key issues worthy of note and which we may derive from this verse either literally or by implication about preparation

Preparation Nuggets

  • Your preparation determines your reparation. 
Reparation is the art of restoring something to its original or satisfactory state Whatever a person goes through in life that may have caused damage either spiritually, emotionally, or relationally, could still be mended.

This is only possible if perception changes from hurt to that of seeing yourself as being prepared for something greater Preparation, therefore, makes reparation or restoration possible.

  • Preparation is a matter of the heart. 
What the heart is not ready for the mind and body will not carry it. Until your heart is fully set for a thing no amount of outward push can take you anywhere in life. 

The one whose heart is open to accommodate what next is about to happen shall not be surprised at the result that follows. Is your heart fixed on a particular thing or are you still processing the process you are to go through? This is where fear sets in Stop over-processing and start accepting and accommodating the process you are to go through.
