A blind boy sat on the steps of a building with a hat by his feet, he held up a sign, which said ‘’I AM BLIND, PLEASE HELP’’ There were only a few coins in the hat a man was walking by, he took a few coins from his pocket and dropped them into the hat, he then took the sign, turned it around and wrote some words, he put the sign back so that everyone who walked by would see the new words, he put the sign back so that everyone who walked by would see the new words, soon the hat began to fill up, many people were giving money to the blind boy. That afternoon the man who had changed the sign came to see how things were. The boy recognised his footsteps and asked ‘’were you the one who changed my sign this morning, what did you write’’ the man said, I only wrote the truth, I said what you said but different way, I wrote today is a beautiful day, but I cannot see it. Both signs told people that the boy was blind but the first sign simply said the boy was blind, the second reminded people how fortunate, they were to have their sight should be surprised that the second sign was more effective.
That remind me what Peter Drucker said: ‘’Effective people are not problem minded but they are opportunity minded, because they feed their opportunity and starve there problem’’ in short what this story painted here is clearer, be thankful for what you are, be creative and be innovative prov 23:7 Because it is your imagination that will set pace for your destination Bishop David O Oyedepo.
Your imagination either make your or mar you, so think differently, positively and productively 2cor 10:5.
When life gives you 100 reasons to cry, show life that you have 1000 reasons to smile, because crying, weeping, thinking negatively and complaining, doesn’t answers to breakthrough, success, testimony, prosperity and divine health 1cor10:10,Num11:1, but it is your mindset that can create all these things mention earlier prov4:23.
In conclusion, what is not in your heart can’t be in your hand, what is too big for your heart we also are too big for your hand to handle. 1John1:1.
