[Recommended] Reflection: Always count your blessings – by Strive Masiyawa

One sure sign of a great achiever is the ability to own up to one’s failures, foibles/weaknesses and shortcomings in general. A successful person who never shares stories of when s/he was not fully clued up about things, and was still struggling to get things to work right is likely to be hiding something. Nobody goes from zero to hero without making a few mistakes or struggling at one or more points on the way to success.

Strive Masiyawa continues to impress me with his massive honesty and transparency, with regard to his rise to success. He never hesitates to publish, often in elaborate detail, specific examples from his true life story of when he was far from being “cool” and “smart”. This latest article on his Facebook page provides an excellent case in point.

He uses his story to teach the rest of us about the need to exercise gratitude to the creator for whatever befalls us. More importantly, you learn that it pays to NOT jump to conclusions about anything that happens to you, even if it looks final.

Sometimes there will be behind-the-scenes efforts being made on your behalf, that you may be unaware of. So long as you maintain a Positive Mental Attitude, with faith, things will turn out right for you. Mr. Masiyawa’s story illustrates this perfectly.

Here’s a preview, ending with the link to read the full version of this powerfully insightful piece.

Being a believer, I prayed every day for a miracle as the deadline drew closer. One morning, it came into my spirit to approach a very wealthy businessman whom I knew was also a man of faith, and would hopefully appreciate my situation. I went to his office, and said to him boldly that I believed God wanted him to help me. To my shock and disappointment, he turned me down flat.

I left his office and continued to try and get the money. Eventually an old friend of mine who ran a bank called me out of the blue and helped me out with a small loan. He didn’t even ask me for a guarantee, which surprised me. This same banker friend continued to extend to me little loans whenever I was in trouble, and he never asked for a guarantee of any kind.

Many, many years later, when I was much more successful, the banker friend of mine disclosed to me something very shocking…
