“Some persons are not getting jobs because of their bad attitude to previous assignments.”
“Your attitude will either bring good to
you, or chase good from you.”
I recently struck up conversation with a local building contractor, ‘Baba Dada’, and these two quotes of his resonated in me.
“I always ask my clients,” he says,
‘What do you see me doing right, so that I can continue? What do you see in me. Because you must like something in me to love me.”
Good questions; every wise man must seek to understand his strong points so as to keep applying the formula. Variables, when applied with the same formula, always get the same results.
Baba Dada shared with me his experience of a building project he completed for a local church. The service hall he built was well received by the church, they loved it and prayed for him. The Pastor even took his details after the job was done.
A Sister from the church loved the way he was doing the job, and asked the pastor if he had his number.
Sadly, according to him, the Pastor told her he didn’t, adding that the “man didn’t do the job well”. Well, the Sister’s spirit didn’t agree with that assessment, but agreed to see the builder the Pastor had recommended.
As God would have it, when she met this builder, his abilities didn’t meet her requirements, which left her feeling sad. “How would she find the other man whose workmanship she loved?” She wondered.
Interestingly, when she returned home, she flips the pages of a particular book, lo and behold, Baba Dada’s number was there! Now, Baba Dada has begun working on the Sister’s building project.
I later discover that sadly, that church still owes him money for the service hall he built but he has already reaped the good he’s sown. I pray they pay him.
Keep doing good, and good will keep coming to you. Most importantly, you’ll have peace of mind, a grain of which, according to Charles Spurgeon, is worth more than tons of gold.
