Another relationship you must give attention to after God and your family is relationship with destiny helpers.
Who are destiny helpers?
Destiny helpers are people who will help you to reach your full potential through teaching, mentoring, financing, leveraging, connections, counsel or prayers. These include your teachers, mentors, spiritual guides, supervisors, colleagues and even friends.
We often appreciate only those who are valuable to us, while sometimes destiny helpers don’t appear like they have anything to offer you. You therefore need to be patient, humble and sensitive to people around you, in order to discern those who are destiny helpers. As a rule of thumb, don’t despise anyone. Everyone has something of value, if you are sensitive enough, you will gain something. Destiny helpers will give you advice that will take you from a negative position to a positive position. Sometimes it is just an hint on how to go about an assignment. Some other times they offer tangible help in form of money, materials or even gifts. Please do all you can to keep them.
There are different junctions in every body’s life, and your ability to take the right turn at each junction sometimes depends on the people (destiny helpers) in your life. Many have made wrong choices and decisions because they either lacked or disdained their destiny helpers. ‘Destiny itself is like a wonderful wide tapestry in which every thread is guided by an unspeakably tender hand, placed beside another thread and held and carried by a hundred others.’ – Rainer Maria Rilke.
Develop, grow, nurture and strengthen your relationship with your destiny helpers. You cannot make it alone. You need people.
God bless us all.
