“If you can’t ‘Bank’, there’s no need to work. If I want to do a charity or freebie, I will choose that on my own.
But, basically, I work to see “Okay, the nut is cracked what do I have left to put into the bank?”
Because the bottom line is to capitalize on my health and success, or popularity, at this moment;
because it’s not promised to me in the future (and to prepare for that future).
Even if I become more so, there’s no one to promise that to me. I’d be a fool to cry later and say,
“I can’t pay my bills; I don’t have anything.”, and whatever. I don’t want to be one of those people.
I want to say, “Look, when it was time to make hay, I made it. I’m like a little ant, I went merrily to the bank and put it away.””
~ Lola Falana

“I wonder how many times people give up just before a breakthrough,

“Don’t worry about who’s going to pay for it.
Don’t worry about who’s going to execute it.
Don’t worry about who’s going to stand in agreement with it.
All He asked you to do was write the vision and then, read it.
Remind yourself of what you said. Remind yourself of where you’re going.”
~ T. D. Jakes, Sr.,
Bishop/Chief Pastor of The Potter’s House,
