unique to various times and season which will always exert pressures and challenges that may steer us into partuular affairs of life.
It is pertinent therefore that Young professionals recognize their placement and place themseves so that they are not crushed to the bewilderment of unexpected negative events and the rutniess congeners
Young Professionals must understand that the worid would continue to follow the path of change and dynamism and so they have to adapt to these changes.
John Maxwell wrote: "Most people want to change the word to Improve their lives, but the world they need to change first is the one inside themselves."
Improving oneself can actually be simple steps and not necessarly big min-blowing changes. All that is needed is determination, consistency and willingness to attempt at things that will challenge and bring out the latent potentals in them so as to become
great influencers and an epitome of success story.
Improving oneself involves becoming aware or your situation, understanding change,
continuous improvement and reliance on God's leading.
QUALITIES THAT ATTRIBUTE TO SELF IMPROVEMENT
Three qualities that are attributable to self-improvement.
Sltuational Awareness: 1 Chr 12:32
Young professionals should take cognisance of the fact that they live in a fast changing wond and as such awareness of the situation and understanding the times is very important.
Gathering information and spotting trends that may signal
change on the horizon will help in charting the direction for self-improvement. It therefore means that anticipating and preparing for change is more important than just reacting to it.
Understanding Change: Eccl 3;1; Rom 12:2
Being flexible and willing to embrace the fact that the world is in a changing mode wil make for better understanding and help in taking advantage of different opportunities and circumstances that we may come across. In our present world.
The young adults must appreciate that professional competion and a
technological advancement constantly combine to force the need for consistent re-evaluation, pragmatic and proactive response to the dynamism in the world.
Enthusiastically understanding and accepting the challenges that evolve with change and a desire to improve oneself and exploring such opportunities is
critical in breaking through and achieving success. Rom 8:28
The world people need to change is the world inside of them.
Most people tend to be so comfortable that they find it very hard to adjust or change.
This on the long run affects their level of growth....
For one to progress in life, he or she must not be static in nature but must be dynamic in nature.
As the world is moving, you keep moving with the world.
This goes a long way in helping one achieve success.
Now,to continue building yourself in this fast changing world.
Build your skills and keep learning: Prov 1:5; 2 Pet 1:5,6

increasing speed of service, living with ambiguities and unocertainties that will
require making quick decisions and improvisation nere necessary, doing your
best and adding value, knowing your niche and becoming a problem solver that
identifies and provides direct action to bring about solutions.

constantly rules in the affairs of men in all ages. Depending on God is greatly

Thank you very much for this inspirational write up. I think I've learnt alot from everything you have said.
This topic is very apt and needed for all to hear.
Firstly, looking at the topic, you wouldn't know that it's coming from a scriptural background.
We all need to grow in a fast changing world.,,
I have a question though, who are young professionals?
**Don't be a good student and a bad teacher.**
@Osaroj😍 To me, young professionals are people especially youths who have the knowledge, idea, skill of a profession(job😎
Take for instance, a doctor can be a young professional, an accountant, a business man, a graphics designer,an artist ,a writer whether it be a white collar job or a brown collar job like welding, carpentry, plumbing.
They're all young professionals. It doesn't matter what you're doing, as long as you're working, you're a young professional.
Thank you! these are truly inspiring words.
This world is changing and fast it ,for you to live in it you have to always improved your self in order not to be left behind or lacking. So every day you have improve every day .
Like for example ,phone change almost every six month , after six month you will hear that new phone is out been released, it because life phone are always upgrading . that is how life too is changing.
So you can chose to stay in one spot or place or chose to move with life .
**Life is good**
