The Three Significant People in Your Life


imageI am not by nature a brainiac however by design I have chosen not only to be intellectual but also wise by associating with the wise, intelligent and knowledgable. What took them years to learn after many trial and error, they disclose in just an hour or less in lectures, conventions and seminars. So basically what took them years takes me days to put into practice. Iron sharpens Iron. So today I make bold to say, wisdom and knowledge is my defense. In school, we go through lessons, classes and training before exams. Not so with life; life gives you exams first and expect you to learn your lesson from the result. With this awareness I have come to realize that there will always be three significant people in my life.

Confidants……you don’t come across many of imagethem in your lifetime. You have very few of them. These are people who love you unconditionally. They are into you; whether you are up or down, right or wrong. If you get in trouble, they get in trouble with you. They are for you. You can open up and share anything with them. You will never inherit your kingdom until you find your confidant. They will confront you. They will tell you when you are wrong. If you have two or three of them in your lifetime, you are a blessed person.

Constituents…..they are not into you; they are imagefor what you are for. As long as you are for what they are for, they will walk and labor with you. Never think they are for you. If they find somebody else who will further their agenda, they will leave you. You could mistake your constituents for your confidants. And by the time you fall in love with them, they will break your heart.

Comrades……they are against what you are imageagainst. This group make strange bed fellows, because this is a group of people who are not for you or what you stand for. They will team up with you to help fight a greater enemy. However don’t be confused by their association because they will only be with you until the victory is accomplished. These people are like scarffolding, they only come into your life to fulfill a purpose. When the purpose is fulfilled the scarffolding is removed.

Expect the constituents and comrades to leave you after a while. Don’t be upset when they don’t react to your dream the way you expect them to. Be careful who you share your dream with. Remember the story of Joseph. If you tell your dream to your constituents, they will desert you and try to fulfill the dream without you. If you tell your dream to your comrades, they will never support it because they were never for what you were for. If you find a few people with whom you can share your dream with in your lifetime, you are a blessed person.

How do you know your confidants?  They weep with you and laugh when you laugh. If you get into a room and tell someone a good news, stop being excited for a minute and watch their reaction. If they are not happy for you, shut your mouth and walk back out of the door. If they are really connected to you, they will be happy for you when you share your dream. God is so faithful, He will always give you somebody.
