When your Win becomes a Gin.

The quickest way to fail even when you could be a success is overconfidence. It never allows you to pay proper attention and do a double check. The quickest way to lose after winning is pride. This is an intoxicant. And an intoxicated person is one with no focus, sense of direction and short sighted. Proverbs 20:1 Wine is a mocker, strong drink is raging: and whosoever is deceived thereby is not wise.

The height of a person’s foolishness is exposed in the state of stupor. He or she’d tell you he/she moved mountain to get where he/she is while he/she only rested on a piece of rock. Or probably slay a lion but squish when a rat crossed his/her path. Many times but not, a person of pride will boast of what he/she doesn’t own but dream of. Oh of course he/she does have some possession but not nearly as much as you’ve been made to believe. Proverbs 11:2 When pride cometh, then cometh shame: but with the lowly is wisdom.
Also, a person’s secret could easily be exposed in such state of stupor. His/her mouth speaks faster than the rate at which his/her mind is functioning reasonably. Before he/she realises it he/she has spoken much more than he/she intends. And words are too quick to evapourates into thin air never to be retrieved. The distance pride can take you; humility will take you much further than that. The greatest of a win is staying humble in the midst of such rejoicing. A win is the turning of one’s mourning into dancing, being favoured or whatever good things that happen in a man’s life Psalm 30:11, which could become better if he/she doesn’t turn it into a gin. To avoid such one should:
Stay the point:  You might find it easier after being successful to forget the past (especially if it is a humble beginning) and not to worry about the future but the point is that; the present won’t last forever.  The earth is constantly rotating and people are on the go. If you get it good today be assure someone will get it better tomorrow. I hope that someone isn’t one you’ve looked down upon yesterday. You know you won’t forget that!
Love differently: Many times I have had course to wonder how do some people get it wrong with all of the talents and gifts the Lord has trusted them with? Then I remember the parable of the talents in Mathew 25:14-30. You should read it. He could only see who the master was instead of who he could be. Learn to love even when the people don’t deserve it. Forget! If those same people prayed for your lose. The secret is; it will multiply your win just as it happened with the first servant.
Steer:  At one point in time someone will get it right while another will get it wrong. If you’ve found the right way to win and keep it. Steer others in that same direction. The more win we get, the greater peace man will enjoy. Simply lend a helping hand to the falling, because you could be needing that same hand to pull you up tomorrow.
Never let your win become a gin. It is the ruin of tomorrow’s beauty. Have a beautiful Saturday. Cheers!
