Be Valuable

BE VALUABLE
As I keep doing what I love to do in the field of ICT, I have come to realize that people are no just seeking you to help them but they are seeking you to ADD VALUE to their lives. Besides just doing your work and going away, ask yourself this question, "What is my Motivation?" Is it just money you are after or Is it something else. The reason for why you do what you do can determine a lot in yours and other people's lives. 
If you have the attitude of service helping others will not be a problem whether you are appreciated or not. Something is always regarded as valuable when it is no longer there but you can make your value known by being there.
When our motives are clear about whatever we are going to do, sometimes you will turn down some offers because you are honest about not being able to do it at that time but may be later. Doing work the right way without wanting to cheat someone will win you favor beyond just one individual. If you make yourself valuable, many times people, organisations, institutions or companies will postpone their schedules to work with you at your given time so that you can not just do what you have to do but create an everlasting Impact by influencing the way things are done and building others to learn so that they can in turn be valuable people.
I have made a little money recently effortlessly just because I worked well for someone, but my work entailed my integrity, faith, values etc and these were things not just spoken but seen and read from my life. Being valuable has become a core thing many people are looking for and it embodies every godly character that he has given you and has been nurtured in you. The Bible says that he who refreshes others will himself be refreshed. The way you approach work, business, church will speak a lot about who you are, who you believe in, what you believe in and how you have been trained to handle situations "good" or "bad". We should know that in any organisation the people we serve are more valuable than the cars we drive, the phones we have, the food we eat, the birds in the air...
Isaiah 13:12 I will make a man more precious than fine gold; even a man than the golden wedge of Ophir.
Matthew 10:29-31
Are not two sparrows sold for a farthing? and one of them shall not fall on the ground without your Father. But the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear ye not therefore, ye are of more value than many sparrows.

Here are the words of Albert Einstein
"Try not to become a man of success, but rather try to become a man of value." -Albert Einstein
