To succeed in any business, clarity and precision are required. This is why businesses that stand tall and weather the seasons are usually businesses with a strong sense of mission. This is due to the fact that your mission statement is an expression of the clarity you currently possess. Our Lord Jesus continued to proclaim with exceptional clarity, “Repent! For the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!” A confused mind is chaotic and cannot produce good results. If you are dissatisfied with your business results, look for areas of complexity and confusion in the operation. Reduce the ambiguity.
There are different levels of clarity. Knowing you want to start a business is a start, but the path to success requires a deeper level of clarity and precision. Understanding the specific industry or niche you aim to enter is crucial. Many entrepreneurs waste time and resources chasing seemingly incredible opportunities that, in reality, lead to nothing. The key lies in discernment, recognizing that your success is limited by the amount of clarity you possess. A simple idea, crystal clear to your soul, often leads to higher productivity and more significant progress compared to a complex idea that only adds confusion.
Are you too confused to make money? A confused mind may conceal their lack of clarity with big words and bravado, but people eventually see things for what they are: confusion. When someone listens to you but cannot understand what you’re saying, their response is always no. We should pray with the Psalmist: “In you, O LORD, do I put my trust: let me never be put to confusion” (Psalms 71:1). Over everything else, you must prioritize gaining clarity in your life, marriage, business, and ministry. The key is to recognise areas where you require assistance and to seek that assistance.
