Two thousand years ago around a date like today same month, one of Jesus disciples known as Peter told Jesus it was time for them to pay their taxes and they don’t have any money. That’s how come I knew it was around this date of the month. Jesus’ reaction was “NO PROBLEM!”
Now why would Jesus say no problem? Well, history has it… He was a miracle worker. If you take a challenge to a miracle worker, what will he say? NO PROBLEM!
Then after Jesus said no problem he tells Peter, “GO FISHING” Peter without much questions decides to GO FISHING, in this relationship he had had with Jesus he was already used to seeing weird things happening so he goes fishing. The first fish he caught looks in mouth and sees coins. Then shouts WOW! COINS! WOW COINS! WOW! WOW! COINS! COINS! He decides to count, enough to pay his taxes and Jesus’ taxes. Which gives Jesus’ position on taxes. Thus, we have a miracle.
What if Peter didn’t go fishing? There will be no miracle.
Here is the parenthesis…. YOU COULD FISH! YOU CAN FISH! YOU SHOULD FISH! Then
you decide not to go fishing, now there is NO MIRACLE FOR YOU!

APPLICATION OF THIS ANALOGY IN REAL LIFE
STUDENT: Let’s say you’re a student studying and you have a problem in a given area of your study. What should you do? CONSULT YOUR LECTURERS/TEACHERS. Yes, the answer belongs to the asking. What if you can consult, you should consult then you decide not to consult? You won’t only fail your exams you will also remain stupid in your area of study. For some argument your skills will be lacking. For some discussions your knowledge will be below average. So, ask, CONSULT, GOOO FISSHIINGG.
UNEMPLOYED: Let’s say you don’t have work to do and really needs one, what is the noble thing to do? LOOK FOR ONE, yes move out of your nest, go confront the job market, drop some CVs, tell someone to inform in case of any job opening and don’t choose work on the onset, you’ll climb the ladder once you’re inside there. What if you SHOULD LOOK FOR WORK, YOU CAN LOOK FOR WORK, and the you decide NOT TO LOOK FOR WORK? No work for you now. SO GOOO FISHHIIIINGG….
EMPLOYED BUT NOT ENOUGH SATISFACTION/INCOME: Yes, we say as you grow older needs increase and as needs increase your cashflow should also grow fatter. Yet in the job market the salary may not grow faster to match your growing needs. So to survive, you have to look for ways to create extra cash flows….yes in the quest of this you need get part time cashflow opening to generate extra income. What if SHOULD LOOK FOR SIDE HUSTLE INCOME FLOW, YOU CAN LOOK FOR IT THEN YOU DECIDE TO LOOK FOR IT!!! NOW THERE IS NO MIRACLE. You will remain behind on your bills and continue complaining just how the world is cruel on you.
IN BUSINESS/ENTREPRENEUR: Business normally deals with customers and if there is one skill an entrepreneur should master and learn is how to EFFECTIVELY take they service/product to the market place. Getting clients, selling your item to them and keeping in touch with them to get recommendations to their contacts and get customer returning is another important skill to master. Indeed it’s takes time to bring value to the market place but we understand you don’t get paid for the time, YOU GET PAID FOR THE VALUE. To reduce the time and speed your success time it’s very important to WORK HARD ON YOURSELF THAN YOU DO ON YOUR JOB.
PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT is very essential because if you sell you can earn a living but if you skillfully sell you can build a fortune. I understand most be people don’t read but you don’t have to be most people especially if you want to build a fortune, you must be willing to do what the rest ain’t willing to do. DEFINITION OF SUCCESS IS DOING WHAT FAILURES WON’T DO. So don’t be lazy in learning, watch videos, read books and attend seminars related to your area of specification. WHAT IF YOU CAN LEARN, YOU SHOULD LEARN THEN YOU DECIDE NOT TO LEARN! Now your growth will be tortoise and you will just me making a living instead of building a fortune and leaving a legacy.
WANT TO SETTLE DOWN: What if you feel like you want to settle down? Yes prayer may be important but after prayer you must go out, identify the lady, find a way to get close to her, get her contact, get to know some few things about her either through friends, make known your intentions towards her, do follow ups until she says yes, grow the relationship during thick and thin, take her out and buy her gifts, appreciate her little efforts and things she does, be there for her and then start planning long goals and settling down, do the marriage and it doesn’t end there. You must do what it takes to keep the family together, avoid anything that may lead to separation/divorce and this isn’t a walk in the park. Sometimes she may call you to inform you of coachcroach disturbing her in the house while you’re at work and you must act helping otherwise you’ll have issues to solve when back home….hahaa… sounds funny but that’s how it is.
If you don’t do the required, remember while you were wooing her there were other people who wanted her and if you dont do as required just like in a footbal match; only the bad player gets replaced, the match proceeds. So always remember someone is warming up to take up your chance if you don’t play your role. If you don’t provide for your family, your neigbour is warming up and he’ll provide for them at a cost.
So WHAT IF YOU SHOULD DO WHAT IS REQUIRED OF YOU, YOU CAN DO WHAT IS REQUIRED OF YOU BUT YOU DECIDE TO MAKE SIMPLE ERRORS IN JUDGMENT REPEATEDLY, NOW THERE IS NO MIRACLE OF YOU HAVING A LONG TERM, STABLE RELATIONSHIP AND WORKING MARRIAGE. SO GOOO FISSHHINGGG!!!!
SINGNING OFF: Am sure by now I’ve managed to convinced you the importance of GOING FISSHING in whatever you do in life and wants to achieve more out of it.. So it’s my wish that you decide to go fishing because nature will always give you the fish with coins, (coins of opportunity/side hustle/partner /job/business opportnuty/dream job/scholarship etc ) and thus gives you a chance to say WWWOOOOOWWWW to life.
