TOTALITY OF SUCCESS – PART 2′ – Pastor David Ibiyeomie



DON’T SAY THAT THEY HATE YOU IN YOUR OFFICE, YOUR MENTAL SYSTEM IS POOR.

WHERE YOU ARE IS NOT GOOD ENOUGH FOR YOUR TOMORROW, IF YOU DON’T MOVE AWAY NOW IT WILL STINK.

WHEN YOU GET TO THE END OF AN ACHIEVEMENT, KEEP MOVING. ALWAYS ASK YOURSELF, ‘WHAT NEXT’?

IF YOU DON’T LET GO OF THE PAST, YOU MAY HINDER THE BRIGHT FUTURE THAT GOD HAS FOR YOU.

DON’T SAY, ‘I LIKE MIDNIGHT CALLS, ALSO LIKE MIDNIGHT THOUGHTS’!

ASSOCIATE WITH SMARTER PEOPLE, YOU DON’T HAVE TO MEET THEM PHYSICALLY, YOU CAN MEET THEM THROUGH THEIR BOOKS.

ONE OF THE SECRETS OF GREAT PEOPLE IS THAT THEY HAVE THINKING COMPANIONS.

-Pastor David Ibiyeomie

You know why we should be productive? I will say this to you in a little way – If your mind is not productive you will wear people out. If you have ever worked with people whose mind is low, they will drain you and you will talk and talk and talk.

Two young men were working with me yesterday, I didn’t know when I hit one person’s head and said, ‘You want to kill me’? We were doing these seven points together and one of them was very dull.

With the way that I work, if you work with me then you will know that your school will be kept aside. I challenged myself when I became a Pastor because I knew that I was going to teach Professors so I pushed myself to a point where if you are in this Church, you will wonder whether you went to school at all – I developed and pushed myself to that point.

So while we were working on the seven points, I was also with six of them and one person was still on one point and I said, ‘Excuse me, you are still on this one’? And every time that I go to him, he will make excuses and I told him, ‘You won’t come here again. I was angry, I didn’t know when I became agitated.

If your mental capacity is not improving, you will wear people out, you will stress people. Don’t say that they hate you in your office, your mental system is poor.

That you are born again does not mean that you are only speaking in tongues, start upgrading your mind. Today we use the Church to cover up the truth. ‘They hate me in my office’, they don’t hate you, you are very stupid’!

That’s the truth! There are very stupid people in the Body of Christ 🎶 Jesus is coming soon, Amen 🎶 You give them something of thirty minutes, they will do it for three hours.

On Thursday I saw a display of this thing that I am teaching. I told a young man to handle a file and within five minutes, he was confused. You know that your mental system is developed when they give you a multitasking role – They give you four to five things at a time and you do it without mistakes.

There are people if you give them two assignments you will just see confusion everywhere, they will say ‘Sir, you sent me nah…’ When you see a multitasking man, he will stay on one seat and do fifty things but if you give somebody who has a poor mental development two assignments, he will say, ‘Sir, how will I do this when you send me the other one’!

I had a young man who was working with me, he was a part-time Pastor. He said, ‘Sir, I sat with you and I observed that you multitask, you can do fifty things at a time! So give me four assignments’. He’s a Pastor, a medical doctor by training so he assists the doctor in the school, he was also a Chaplain, a Pastor in a Church and also my research officer – And he was doing all of them successfully.

I said, ‘How were you able to do it?’ and he said, ‘I saw that you are able to do so many things at the same time’ – ‘You are talking with the school at the same time you are preparing a Message and praying for the sick’, yet I won’t show any sign of tiredness.

Watch this, if you give that to a man whose mind is not developed, just tell him ‘Bring my clothes and make calls’, he will say, ‘Sir, I forgot to call the person because you asked me to bring your clothes’! But for the man whose mind is developed as he is going to bring the clothes, he will make the call. Let’s not use the Church to cover the truth. I want the Church to sit up and stop deceiving ourselves.

Benefits of productive thinking:


i. You will generate ideas Matthew 7:7-8
The world is ruled by men and women of ideas in every field of endeavours.

Wealth is a function of man’s capacity to think so wealth is a function of ideas. So the more ideas you have, the more wealthy you become. You know? Wealth is not money, wealth is ideas. Now, I said, The poor talk about money, then the rich talk about things. 

Oh, I want to buy a designer’s bag, can you see my house and jet? But when you meet a wealthy man, they will say, I just got a new idea. ‘An idea came to me to be able to do this’ Check the category you belong to! And we must belong to the class of the wealthy. But there are too many poor people on earth and all they talk about is money.

Even as you are in Church now, you are saying ‘If I can get money now’! You are a poor person’. You don’t need money, you need ideas.

ii. You will enjoy promotion
When you are a thinker, you will enjoy promotion. Joseph for instance was promoted in Egypt by thinking in Genesis 41.

Mental work is superior to muscle work. Avoid complaining in your workplace that they are not promoting you, think and be innovative and you will be promoted.

-I see you promoted in the Name of Jesus!

What are the aids to productive thinking?
A. Associate with smarter brains Proverbs 27:17


One of the secrets of great people is that they have thinking companions. Look at me, I am very close to Bishop Oyedepo, I was with him the day before yesterday. He just said, ‘David! Come up’! Friday night and Thursday night, we spoke after Service. Who is close to you? Daniel had thinking companions – Shadrach, Meshak and Abednego in Daniel 2:17-18.

You either meet them physically or through their materials. Jesus was also with the doctors in the Temple Luke 2:45-48. Read journals, read books, listen to relevant Messages and tapes.

Associate with smarter people, you don’t have to meet them physically, you can meet them through their books.

B. Concentration Acts 10:19a
Thinking requires time and a lack of concentration in the process of thinking is what makes us lose ideas when they come.

Invest time in thinking about your job and assignments and you will not lack ideas that will lift you up 1 Timothy 4:15.

-I see you lifted in the Name of Jesus!

C. Utilize the night season
The night season is not the only time for you to sleep, that’s the time to also think Psalms 16:7. Secrets are revealed in the night seasons, great men don’t play with their night season. It is how you utilize the night that will determine what you will become in the day. 

Night seasons shouldn’t be just for phone calls, let it not be the time to talk and chat but a time to think. Don’t say, ‘I like midnight calls, also like midnight thoughts’!

Declarations: I will think productive thoughts.

If you think well in the night you will find out that your brain will assimilate things and produce outstanding results.

Obstacles to mental exploits:
i. Sin
When you literally live in sin, you will destroy your mental capacity. Sin corrupts mental capacity Daniel 1:8.Every man of integrity naturally enjoys mental dignity.

ii. Accepting the status quo
Many get satisfied with where they are and believe that they have done their best but there is always room for progress Proverbs 4:18. Always try to be better no matter who you are in life. Where you are is not good enough for your tomorrow, if you don’t move away now it will stink Micah 2:10.

 

The pride in the past achievement will paralyze your future, there is a place called forward. So shift! Sometimes you succeed so much to the point where you think that you have reached the best but there is another room. Make every end a bend – When you get to the end of an achievement, keep moving. Always ask yourself, ‘What next’?

iii. The trap of past failures
For some of us, because we have failed before it affects our mind Isaiah 43:18-19. Please put the past behind you, many can’t make mental exploits because of their past failures and misfortunes Philippians 3:13-14. If you don’t let go of the past, you may hinder the bright future that God has for you.

-I see you making it in the Name of Jesus.

iv. Comparison
Comparing yourself with someone else affects productive thinking. You are just who you are, don’t try to be someone else. Stay in your own lane, know your strength and don’t be like somebody else 2 Corinthians 10:12. Even wives, don’t try to compete with your husband, the two of you are not the same.

Build in your own strength, your husband may be good in Mathematics while you may be good in English, sharpen your English. You can’t be like somebody else, do your own business 2 Thessalonians 4:11.
