For which of you, intending to build a tower, sitteth not down first, and counteth the cost, whether he have sufficient to finish it?
Luke 14: 28
One basic reason many people start out a venture or a project and abandon it half way is because of poor planning. They never had a detailed budget plan or feasibility study before they started out on their project. Half way down the line, they discover that resources were either not enough to complete it or they got to meet a dead end as to the next step to take. This can be totally avoided if the first thing is done, which is counting the cost before venturing out.
When you have a vision, the next thing you do is to plan. Planning is all encompassing; it involves diligently estimating the cost of your vision, evaluating your available resources, having a time line by which you intend completing the project and also strategies you intend to take to achieve the project irrespective of the risk factors or challenges that will arise. This puts you on track to ensure you go through with it until completion.
You have received blessings, prayers and prophecies about what you should be doing or what God has said about you and your destiny; it is now time to sit down and plan, strategize and cost your vision. Begin that today, do not procrastinate anymore and you would see yourself rising to the top. Glory to God!!!
