It is precisely two days prior to the start of a new year and I am deeply engaged in an internal dialogue followed by an intense prayer about my intentions for greeting the new year. This dialogue (may I add) is between me and God. The intensity of this exchanged is fueled not by the ordinary concerns, but by a greater mandate to help more people do what they love while simultaneously being made aware that within them are deposits and seeds of greatness. Seeds too great to be ignored. The crust of this mandate is premised on a belief of mine that gets stronger by the minute. I believe wholeheartedly that within all of us are one or more solutions designed and packaged for one or more pervasive problems that we were destined to solve. Such a task at the bare minimum is a daunting one, however with some sweltering faith and a little consideration about how powerful story-telling truly is, I decided to employ a little story-telling to this book. My hope is that by sharing a number of these short stories, the seven (7) undeniable laws I discuss within this book would become more relatable, practical, easier to remember and less overwhelming. Thus, getting each reader that much closer to their harvests, favor and increase now.
As a basic point, story-telling has existed for as long as humans have had the capacity to speak or better yet, story-telling have existed for as long as humans could fathom a means to communicate (verbally, nonverbally or written). Truth be told, our very society is built on the foundations of great stories (true stories). Moreover, stories are embedded within our everyday lives and if we took the time to evaluate what drives us even today, we would find somewhere in that assortment a story or two. Hundreds of stories that we have heard … Whether at bedtime, at a party, school, in church, in the boardroom, on the job, on vacation or somewhere, somehow they have become a part of who we are and it continues to play a key role in framing how we think and how we conduct our lives.
