Whether you’re just starting out or are an old pro, who doesn’t want to be a more successful entrepreneur?

30 Ways to Become a More Successful Entrepreneur.

30 Ways to Become a More Successful Entrepreneur

Owning your own business gives you a sense of freedom and empowerment. You can build things and watch them grow.

Entrepreneurs make decisions for themselves, realize their creative visions, and develop lasting relationships with other entrepreneurs, customers, and vendors.

It’s a great way to live. That’s why I’ve founded so many companies — I can’t get enough.

That’s why Patel put together these tips to help you to become more successful.

1. Get gritty

Grit is perseverance. Grit is the go-get-’em attitude that we expect of entrepreneurs. Grit is the ability to keep working when everyone tells you that you should give up.

If you want to be a successful entrepreneur, you have to be gritty.

Honestly, without hard work and perseverance, you’re not going anywhere in the entrepreneurial world.

2. Challenge yourself

If you want to be a successful entrepreneur, you have to challenge yourself. No one else is going to push you, so it’s up to you to do it.

Challenges keep entrepreneurs nimble and on their toes. If you’re constantly looking for the next challenge, you’ll always be prepared for what comes your way.

pngbase64be89479a8e38b9d

Consider this example:

You’re going to the gym to build your upper body strength. You start doing bicep curls with a 10-pound weight. It feels pretty heavy at first. But as you build up your strength, it gets easier.

Would you stop there? No!

Then it’s time to do bicep curls with a 20-pound weight. Once you’ve done bicep curls with a 20-pound weight, going back to a 10-pound weight will feel easy.

Challenging yourself with new and difficult tasks will make your other tasks seem even simpler. Just like the 10-pound weight feels light after you lift a 20-pound weight.

As an entrepreneur, you always have to be looking for the next big challenge.

3. Be passionate

If you don’t love what you do, don’t do it. I truly believe it’s as simple as that.

As an entrepreneur, you’re going to have to put in long hours and make sacrifices for your business.

When you’re passionate about what you do, putting in the long hours won’t feel like a sacrifice anymore.

If you’re not passionate about what you do, you’re not going to have the motivation to keep going when you’re stressed and tired.

Have you ever noticed those entrepreneurs who never seem to get tired? Those entrepreneurs who get that gleam in their eye when they talk about what they do?

Yeah, that’s passion.

Forty-four percent of entrepreneurs started their business because they saw an opportunity to create something great. They are passionate about their business. Are you?

pngbase6421482a401c2a7240

Be passionate about what you do, and being an entrepreneur gets just a little bit easier.

4. Take risks

Humans are generally risk-averse, but part of being an entrepreneur is recognizing the risks that you should take.

Successful entrepreneurs take risks. It’s part of the job.

Successful entrepreneurs also know which risks to take and which they shouldn’t. Learn to recognize the risks that will benefit your business and take them.

pngbase64681122440804324c

Taking risks has a dangerous side, but the opportunities they present often far outweigh the potential dangers.

Learn how to identify which risks are worth taking and you’ll learn how to be a successful entrepreneur.

5. Trust yourself

If you don’t believe in yourself, who will?

Being a successful entrepreneur means that you’ve learned to listen to your intuition and rely on your wisdom when making decisions.

Your ability to trust and believe in yourself will show your confidence. People are more likely to follow and trust confident leaders.

Trusting in your own skills will also take some of the pain of uncertainty out of being an entrepreneur.

When you feel uncertain, remember how much experience and knowledge you have. Most entrepreneurs start their business after years of experience working for someone else.

pngbase64ba05f2a5ae947016

There’s nothing wrong with asking for help when you need it or turning to a mentor for advice, but you also have to learn to trust yourself and your own judgment without input from others.

Learn to trust yourself and you’re already starting down the path of entrepreneurial success.

6. Reduce fear

Fear stops action. Entrepreneurs have to be able to pivot and quickly take action when they see an opportunity or recognize a mistake.

With fear riding on your shoulder, you won’t be a successful entrepreneur.

As an entrepreneur, if you let fear be your guide, you won’t be able to listen to your intuition, you’ll be afraid to take the necessary risks, and your judgment will be clouded by emotion.

Find ways to reduce and manage your fear and you’ll be a much more successful entrepreneur.

Remember, fear has to do with your perspective.

Research has shown that the more crime TV that you watch, the more likely you are to fear crime. Reduce your fear by changing your perspective.

pngbase64e064ff7def51f68a

My favorite tip for managing fear as an entrepreneur is to do confidence-building exercises.

For me, I like to take a few moments at night to think of the decisions I made that day that had a successful outcome.

Thinking each day about the decisions that you made that benefited you, others, or your business will help you to quickly build your confidence and reduce fear.

7. Visualize goals

This tip is less abstract than you might think, so bear with me.

When I recommend that entrepreneurs visualize their goals, I don’t intend for them to close their eyes and see the goal in front of them.

What I want you to do to visualize your goal is to define it so clearly that it’s real and tangible.

For example, which of these is a more accomplishable:

  1. I want to become a successful entrepreneur.
  2. I will become a successful entrepreneur by starting a business that solves a problem for this specific niche of my audience.

The second one, right?

When you can clearly articulate and visualize your goal, it becomes more achievable.

There are many ways to visualize your goal if you aren’t sure how to start. You can write it down or draw it out.

pngbase6474f0580ff8b4cd29

You can tell someone, such as a friend or business partner, or take photographs that represent your goal. Go with your strengths.

When you ask a successful entrepreneur what their goal is, they can tell you in great detail what it is that they’re working to achieve.

8. Hire great partners

I’ll admit that this one might be a little bit obvious.

Successful entrepreneurs aren’t successful within a vacuum. We all have a great team and support network behind us.

And when I recommend hiring great partners, I don’t just mean someone who can do the job you’re hiring them for.

I want you to hire partners who have great character and whom you like and respect.

And just as a bonus, you’re more likely to succeed with a partner than you are on your own.

30 Ways to Become a More Successful Entrepreneur.

You and your partners will be working long hours together and making stressful decisions. If your partner has a character that you don’t respect, your team won’t last long.

Fill your team with people who have great character and you’re well on your way to success.

When choosing your partners and team members, always remember that you can teach skills, but you can’t teach character.

9. Act

Talk only delays action.

Successful entrepreneurs act.

It’s easy to get wrapped up in planning, considering potential failures, discussing funding, and talking in meetings with board members. If all you do is talk, you’ll get nothing done.

At some point, you have to halt the talking and make something happen.

10. Spend time

Do you think that there’s such a thing as an overnight success? I recommend that you take a closer look.

Upon examination, those people and businesses that became overnight sensations and successes actually worked really hard and long for their achievements.

When you think you’ve found an overnight success, check again and examine closely the hours, days, and years that went into their success.

Take a look at their life, the things they learned, and how many times they failed.

Successful entrepreneurs take the time that’s required to reach success. And many of them have failures along the way.

30 Ways to Become a More Successful Entrepreneur.

If you think it’s taking too long to find success, give yourself a break.

Keep plugging along, putting in the hours, and before long, you’ll be a successful entrepreneur.

Just imagine looking back at all the hard work and knowing it paid off. Keep that image in your head to motivate you forward through the long, slogging hours.



 

11. Plan your finances

Startups and entrepreneurial businesses need money. It’s just a part of the lifestyle.

Many entrepreneurs spend too much time looking for money and not enough acting, but that doesn’t mean that you can leap into the abyss without a plan.

For most entrepreneurs, they’re using their own savings to start their business. That’s risky. Have a plan and you minimize your risk.

pngbase6479d04690f9ee99a6

Plan out your finances in the beginning and try to stick to it, but know that the plan will have to be adapted along the way.

12. Who’s your customer?

One of the most common reasons that entrepreneurial businesses fail is that there isn’t a customer.

If you start a business or make a product but don’t know who will buy it, that person might not actually exist.

Before you make a financial plan, raise capital, or even choose a name, make sure that there’s a customer who would buy your product or use your services.



Without a customer, you don’t have a business.

Successful entrepreneurs know who their customers are.

13. Listen to complaints

This is one of the tips that I think is the most important for entrepreneurs to learn.

Your customer’s complaints are how you identify your business’s weaknesses.

Similarly to the last tip, without customers, you can’t have a successful business. There’s another possible scenario, though.

You might have customers who are interested in your product or service, but if you don’t listen to their complaints, you soon will have no customers.

Take your customers seriously, treat their complaints with respect, and listen.

You might think you’re giving them value, but they may not agree.

pngbase64e80514fa93dcbd90

Your customers know what they want, and they’re going to tell you what they think.

A smart and successful entrepreneur listens to those complaints and uses that information to fix the business’s weaknesses.

14. Exceed expectations

If you deliver more than you promised, you’re sure to have satisfied customers, investors, and business partners.

Making promises and not delivering is a quick way to lose your business.

In contrast, successful entrepreneurs exceed expectations.

15. Manage risks

Remember when I said that you should take risks? Yep, you should. But, you shouldn’t take every risk that presents itself.

Instead, manage your risks.

Learn to recognize which risks are worth taking and which you should walk away from.

For example, if you know that you don’t fit the mold of the typical entrepreneur, find out how to better fit in and limit your risk of being skipped over for being different.

pngbase6488376b848e3426d8

As a successful entrepreneur, you need to learn how to identify which risks to take but also when to take risks.

Taking risks isn’t just about what the risk is but also when you’re taking the risk.

Earlier on in founding your business, taking a risk might have a much lower chance of failure than toward the end of founding your business.

Be sure to recognize where you are in the entrepreneurial cycle when calculating which risks to take.

Learn to manage your risks and you’ll be a much more successful entrepreneur.

16. Read case studies

As an entrepreneur, you’ll be inundated with your business, need to take care of it all the time.So when you get home and have some leisure time, you might be tempted to read fiction or books for entertainment.

So when you get home and have some leisure time, you might be tempted to read fiction or books for entertainment.

Instead, I encourage you to read case studies. Read biographies of successful entrepreneurs. Read everything you can get your hands on about those who have already been successful.

There’s always something to learn from those who have already done it.

I especially think it’s important to learn from the mistakes of others. If you learn from their mistakes, you won’t have to make those mistakes yourself.

And if you do make mistakes yourself, definitely learn from those. Or others 

pngbase64be7532c4953b99f3

The more you learn from their mistakes and successes, the faster you can grow your business and become a successful entrepreneur.

17. Self-promote

Many people don’t want to self-promote or talk about their business too much for fear of sounding like an ego maniac.

pngbase649f489d87b99b8e2f

But if you don’t promote your business, who will?

Egotistical self-promotion and self-promotion can be differentiated.

Know your business, know some key stats, and have your 15-second elevator pitch polished and ready to go. Then, when someone asks you about your business, you can promote it factually and quickly.

Another way to self-promote without sounding cocky is to know what your customers say about your business. When someone asks how your business is going, you can tell them your customer feedback.

Don’t forget to provide some of the bad as well as the good.

18. Set company culture

There may have been a time when company culture wasn’t important, but with social media and the 24-hour news cycle, your company and employees are always under scrutiny.

Your attitude, beliefs, and morals set the tone for the rest of your company and culture. Cough, Uber, cough.

Set a positive company culture from day one and you’ll be more likely to work with people you enjoy and who inspire you as well as attract great customers.

Many entrepreneurs are working with family, from home, and even across borders. It’s important to set and know what you want your company culture to look like.

pngbase64487f42feaf99b84f

19. Network, network, network

There is no such thing as too much networking. Well, there is, I guess. Don’t let networking get in the way of building your business.

What I mean to say is that you shouldn’t ever stop networking because you never know where your next lead will come from.

And you’re not alone. Chances are, if you network with enough people, you’ll bump into another entrepreneur who might have the ideas and connections you need.

30 Ways to Become a More Successful Entrepreneur.

You might find a new connection while grabbing a beer at the airport bar, you might meet your next business partner in an elevator on your way to a meeting, and you just never know who’s sitting next to you on the bus.

Meet everyone you come into contact with and have a short chat. You never know who you’re sitting next to and what connections or resources they might be able to offer you.

20. Learn and create

The successful entrepreneur mindset is that of learning and creation. As an entrepreneur, you always want to be taking in new information and creating.

This type of mindset can be draining and tiring, but without it, you’re not going anywhere.

30 Ways to Become a More Successful Entrepreneur.

To stay in the learner and creator mindset, stay away from TV, social media, and movies. These types of entertainment cause us to be passive and just take in information.

Pursue everything in moderation, but in general, these activities are time-wasters for entrepreneurs. Limiting your entertainment time is a sacrifice that must be made to become a successful entrepreneur.

Instead of watching TV and movies, read case studies and meditate. Take care of your mind and body in constructive, healing ways.

It may “feel good” to watch TV, but it’s not actually a rejuvenating way to relax.

To be a successful entrepreneur, find relaxing activities that help to restore your learner and creator mindset.

21. Deliver, don’t sell

Honestly, no one likes to be sold to. I mean seriously, who enjoys going to the car lot and buying a new car? We all know what we’re getting ourselves into and dread it.

So, instead of selling to your potential customers, deliver. Offer them a free trial and deliver a great product.

Research has found that giving away a free product or trial on social media is two times more effective than standard hard-sale tactics.

pngbase64f79aa364556c4538



When your company delivers a great product or service, you’ll build customer loyalty faster than you can say, “successful entrepreneur.”

22. Baby steps

Building a successful entrepreneurial business can seem daunting, and that’s OK. Building a business from the ground up is a massive undertaking.

But I have a foolproof tactic: Break it down.

Any problem that seems insurmountable, break it down into baby steps.

Once you’ve broken it down into baby steps, take them one at a time. Before you know it, just by placing one foot in front of the other, you’ll be halfway up the mountain.

With grit and perseverance, baby steps will get you far toward becoming a successful entrepreneur.

23. Put everything on your calendar

You think I’m kidding, but I’m not. Put everything on your calendar.

Think something doesn’t need to be on your calendar? It does.

Put your meetings, quiet work periods, time with friends, happy-hour business meetings, kids’ soccer games, workouts, meal times, and anything else that you do on your calendar.

Once something is on your calendar, then everyone who needs to meet with you knows that time isn’t available.

And then, a meeting won’t be scheduled for when you “intended” to go to the gym. Exercise is important to entrepreneurs for many reasons, and I’ve got more on that later.

30 Ways to Become a More Successful Entrepreneur.

Once everything is on your calendar, that aren’t anymore excuses for not getting them done.

I want to also draw your attention to one of the items I included: Quiet work time. That is time when you can work, solve problems, or think creatively without being interrupted.

Everyone needs these periods of time. To be a successful entrepreneur, guard your quiet work times with your life. The success of your business may depend upon them.

24. Exercise

Did you know that sitting down all day long is bad for your health? It is.

Being a successful entrepreneur doesn’t just mean running a profitable business. Run yourself too ragged managing that business and you might not be around to enjoy its success.

You must take care of yourself as well as your business. One of the many self-care tasks that I recommend is exercise.

30 Ways to Become a More Successful Entrepreneur.

Make sure to book time in your calendar to get in some exercise and get out of your chair.

Maybe you go to yoga, institute walking meetings, climb the stairs instead of taking the elevator, or simply go to the gym.

Build time into your calendar every week (dare I hope for every day?) to be physically active and take care of your body as well as your business.

A sick or unhealthy entrepreneur isn’t a successful entrepreneur.

25. Focus

The life of a successful entrepreneur can feel scattered and disjointed, but it’s important to limit your time spent multitasking.

Research has shown time and time again that multitasking doesn’t work. Humans aren’t capable of it.

And yes, multitasking includes being distracted by your phone and email tabs. Close them and put them away.

30 Ways to Become a More Successful Entrepreneur.

Learn to focus and take time to do just one task. Giving one task your full attention will mean that you’re more likely to get it done and do it well.

It’s also important to know that too many tasks on your to-do list can make you ineffective and distracted.

Learn to focus your to-do list on the tasks that you’re capable of finishing in the amount of time you’ve allotted for them.

For example, each night, set the three tasks that you’ll complete the following day. And each month, set the overarching goal for your company that you want to achieve in the next 30 days.

These techniques can help you to learn how to focus and more effectively manage your business.

26. Take time off

We finally made it to the tip that I think it the toughest for successful entrepreneurs to put into practice.

And yes, I really mean that you need to take time off. Americans don’t do it enough.

30 Ways to Become a More Successful Entrepreneur.

You might not need time off every day or every week, but you do need to take time off. If all you do is work, you’ll burn out. Fast.

I think this is the most challenging for entrepreneurs because they often see themselves as invincible or believe that they must be invincible.

No, we’re all humans and we need time off.

Time off allows your brain to roam, to rest, and to think. Ever wonder why you think of so many ideas in the shower? It’s because your brain has free range to just think and roam.

Even the most successful entrepreneurs don’t work all the time. Everyone needs time off, so don’t shame yourself for being human and normal.

When you do take time off, notify your staff ahead of time and let them know why it’s important to you.

Teaching your staff the importance of time off will help them to respect your time away and to recognize when they need time off.

By the way, you should allow your staff time off too. They also are human and will occasional breaks.

Take time off before you need it and recognize that it’s important for healing, creating, and becoming a more successful entrepreneur.

Do you agree that this is the toughest tip to work into your life?

27. Ask

You don’t know anything. No one does.

So ask for help, advice, mentors, and everything else you need. Asking questions gains you information.

The more information you have, the more connections you can make, and the easier running your business will become.

Asking questions also helps you to remain in a learner mindset, ready to accept advice and information.

Learners and those who ask questions are more likely to become successful entrepreneurs.

28. Fail

Failure is an option.

Yep, I said it.

30 Ways to Become a More Successful Entrepreneur.

Better to accept it now then later. You will fail at some point.

Failure is an aspect of becoming a successful entrepreneur, so you’d better get used to it now.

29. Get inspired

Being an entrepreneur is a creative pursuit. As an entrepreneur, you have to make connections, solve problems, and create new things that no one has thought of before.

Creators and creatives need to be inspired.

Successful entrepreneurs take time for the things that inspire them.

30 Ways to Become a More Successful Entrepreneur.

Maybe your inspiration comes from being in an art museum, maybe it’s reading books, maybe it’s doodling —whatever it is that inspires you, do it. It’s good for your business.

Successful entrepreneurs are inspired. Don’t let that magic slip for too long. Whenever you can, and definitely when you’re feeling burned out, get out there and get inspired.

Inspiration is the spark for ideas. Ideas make successful entrepreneurs.

30. Help others

Entrepreneurs are busy, so this tip sometimes trips them up. It’s easy to think, “I don’t have time to help anyone else! I’m so busy already!”

But helping others can be inspiring and massively beneficial.

How well does it feel to help others? And as an entrepreneur, you have a network with whom you can share your expertise and jobs you can hire people for. Why wouldn’t you help others?

30 Ways to Become a More Successful Entrepreneur.

When you help someone, they will likely find a way to help you. It might not be today or tomorrow, but somewhere in the future, they will be there to help you when you need it.

Helping others is also a great way to build a loyal and supportive network around you.

Successful entrepreneurs help the people they meet.

Conclusion

Succeeding in business doesn’t require overnight success. In fact, that’s largely a myth.

As I’ve demonstrated in these 30 tips, you have to take a long-term strategy and build it in baby steps until it becomes a success.

You can do it, but only if you’re aware of the potential pitfalls and ready to fail.

It’s also essential to give and accept help. Entrepreneurship isn’t a solitary pursuit. It takes a village, as they say.

Finding success as an entrepreneur is no easy task, but with these simple tips, I hope it becomes just a little bit easier.

Remember, my biggest challenge to all of you entrepreneurs out there is to take some time off and to listen to complaints. I think these tips are often forgotten but are so important to being a successful entrepreneur.

From Cbl Media By Neil Patel Digital

One thought on “30 Ways to Become a More Successful Entrepreneur.”

  1. Hi,

    I’d like to share some extremely significant news that’s been making its way throughout the internet relevant to our future security.

    We are coming towards a future of a one world cashless money society in which they will mandate us to have an RFID chip implanted in our body. This chip will store our information and we will lose our privacy because of the tracking power.

    Bigger news than this, have you heard that this was predicted about two-thousand years ago from a very well known person named Jesus? How could this be? Keep reading… This may be the most important thing you will ever read.

    – “And he(the false prophet) causeth all, the small and the great, and the rich and the poor, and the free and the bond, that there be given them a mark on their right hand, or upon their forehead; and that no man should be able to buy or to sell, save he that hath the mark, even the name of the beast or the number of his name. Here is wisdom. He that hath understanding, let him count the number of the beast; for it is the number of a man: and his number is Six hundred and sixty and six” (Revelation 13:16-18 ASV)..

    Speaking of the last times, this can only be speaking of a society where physical currency is no more, which we have yet to see, but we are on the horizon of. Why’s that? Otherwise we would be able to buy or sell without taking the mark between each other if tangible currency was still around. It logically deduces itself to this conclusion.

    This mark can’t be spiritual, because the word references two unique physical locations. If it were to be spiritual, it would just say in the forehead.

    This is just the beginning. It is startling how on target the Bible is with respect to this RFID microchip. These are notes from a man named Carl Sanders who worked with a crew of engineers to help advance this RFID microchip in the 1900’s.

    Carl Sanders sat in 17 New World Order conferences with heads-of-state officials such as Henry Kissinger and Bob Gates of the CIA to talk about their agenda on how to bring about this one-world system. The government commissioned Mr. Sanders to invent a microchip for identifying and controlling the peoples of the world-a microchip that might be placed underneath the skin with a hypodermic needle(a fast, convenient process that would be gradually accepted by the people).

    Mr. Sanders, along with a group of engineers with him, with US grant monies provided by tax dollars, took on this mission and designed a RFID chip that is powered by a lithium battery, rechargeable by way of the temperature fluctuations in our skin. Without the knowledge of the holy Bible (Carl was not a follower of Jesus at the time), these engineers spent one-and-a-half-million dollars conduction research on the best and most convenient spot to have the RFID chip placed within the body.

    These researchers found that the forehead and the back of the hand(the two locations Revelation says the mark will go) aren’t only the most convenient locations, however are also the only viable spots for rapid, consistent temperature fluctuations within the skin to recharge the lithium battery. The chip is approximately 7 millimeters in length, .75 millimeters in diameter, about the dimensions of a grain of rice. It is capable of storing pages of details about you. All of your general information, work information, crime history, health data, and financial history can be stored on this chip.

    Mr. Sanders believes that this chip, which he remorsefully helped invent, is the “mark” spoke of in Revelation 13:16-18. The original Greek word for “mark” is “charagma,” which is defined as a “scratch or etching.” It’s also fascinating to observe that the number 666 is a word in the original Greek language. This word being “chi xi stigma,” with the end part, “stigma,” additionally meaning “to stick or prick. Mr. Sanders believes this is referencing to using a hypodermic needle being poked in the human flesh to insert the RFID microchip.”

    Mr. Sanders reached out to a doctor asking what would take place if the lithium contained within the chip leaked into the human body. The doctor replied by saying a horrible sore would appear in that location. Now this is what the scriptures of Revelation 16:2 has to say:

    “And the first went and poured out his bowl on the earth; and there came an evil and grievous sore upon the men that had the mark of the beast, and those who worshipped its image” (Revelation 16:2 DARBY).

    Scripture tells us we cannot buy or sell without receiving the mark of the beast, or the number of its name. This number is identified as 666. The scriptures tell us to calculate the number 666. How can we count 666?

    This is where it gets really interesting. Calculating the number of the beast 666 has been long debated throughout history, but has finally been uncovered in these last times by the Holy Spirit. What you will read confirms itself with the word of God the real interpretation to calculate 666.

    Throughout the Bible, God uses the number 3 for confirmation. Below are a few examples:

    “For there are three that bear witness in heaven: the Father, the Word, and the Holy Spirit; and these three are one” (1 John 5:7 NKJV).

    “and that He was buried, and that He rose again the third day according to the Scriptures” (1 Corinthians 15:4 NKJV).

    “…Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty, Who was and is and is to come!” (Revelation 4:8 NKJV).

    Now what is interesting is the the mark is revealed in detail in 3 different verses (Revelation 13:16,17,18), and each verse lists three different characteristics of the given subject. The final three being the number 6 used three times in a row. Here is a key point to deciphering how to count the number 666.

    What does it mean to count 666? It means to add up. How may we add up 666? Call back to mind my previous key point regarding God confirming in threes. So logically, what would be the most sensible way to count the number 666? To count it equally in 3’s based off the number. We cannot count it equally as 600+60+6, this would also bring us back to the beginning. We are not able to count it as 600+600+600, or 60+60+60, because there are no zeroes in between or at the end of 666. The only sensible option is 6+6+6=18. What is fascinating is that the verse that reveals for us to count the number of the beast itself is verse 18, being the third verse out of three verses that describe the mark. What is 18 divided by 3? 6. So 3×6=18, or 6+6+6=18.

    Another interesting point is that the two other combinations (bringing a combined total of 3 possible combinations) for moving the plus symbol in between the 6’s are 66+6=72, and 6+66=72. Count both 72’s together and you get 144. Why the number 144 is interesting is because the verse following Revelation 13:18 is the first time in the Bible where the 144,000 are being described in detail:

    “Then I looked, and behold, a Lamb standing on Mount Zion, and with Him one hundred and forty-four thousand, having His Father’s name written on their foreheads…” (Revelation 14:1).

    Now if you add up all 3 numbers by counting 666 by moving the “+” symbol around in all 3 possible combinations, it would be 72+72+18=162. What is fascinating about the number 162, is, if you divide 144,000 by 162, you get 888. The name for Jesus in Greek gematria adds up to 888. The New Testament was originally written in Greek. Revelation 14:1 not only mentions the 144,000, but also the Lamb who is Jesus.

    Now what is interesting about the number for Jesus, 888, is that if you apply this same formula, you get 8+8+8=24. Why the number 24? Revelation chapter 4 tells us there are 24 elders seated around the throne of God. This is the same throne where Jesus sits:

    “Immediately I was in the Spirit; and behold, a throne set in heaven, and One sat on the throne. And He who sat there was like a jasper and a sardius stone in appearance; and there was a rainbow around the throne, in appearance like an emerald. Around the throne were twenty-four thrones, and on the thrones I saw twenty-four elders sitting, clothed in white robes; and they had crowns of gold on their heads” (Revelation 4:2-4).

    Now if you take 8+8+8=24, and 8+88=96, and 88+8=96, you get 24+96+96=216. Take 144,000 divided by 216 and you get 666. Consider that this was the same method to get the value 162 out of counting 666 that brought about the numeral 888 when dividing 144,000 by 162. It’s perpetual.

    With utilizing the identical formula of counting by including the plus symbol in between the numbers, why do all these numbers relate in such a way?

    Another interesting point to notice is that if you add up all of the numbers from 1 to 36, it totals 666. The number 36, as in three sixes? Could this be a hint that we should add up three sixes instead of perceiving the number as six-hundred sixty six?

    So what could this imply? Well we all know in this world we’re recognized by numbers in numerous forms. Starting from our birth certificates to social security, also with our drivers license, being recognized based on a system of ruler ship. So it’s possible that this RFID microchip will comprise a new identification that has a total of 18 characters.

    May this be the title of the beast, the number of its name? The one-world beast system which is recognized by 18 characters? This is able to match the scriptures that speaks of a mark that we must have to buy or sell in our right hand or forehead, and that it also consists of the number of the beast, throughout a future cashless money society.

    The Holy scriptures warns us in the last days that a false prophet will rise up performing miracles to deceive many to acquire the beasts mark:

    “Then the beast was captured, and with him the false prophet who worked signs in his presence, by which he deceived those who received the mark of the beast and those who worshiped his image” (Revelation 19:20).

    Whatever it takes, DO NOT RECEIVE IT!

    “Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation. He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name” (Revelation 14:9-11).

    We’re residing in very prophetic times with major Biblical prophecies being fulfilled. When Donald Trump recognized Jerusalem as capital of Israel on December 6 2017, this was a big step to bring about the Third Temple foretold in the the scriptures.

    God’s word warns us that the Antichrist will seat himself in this temple:

    “…and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition, who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God” (2 Thessalonians 2:3-4).

    In the Islamic faith, they have a figure known as the Mahdi, referred to as their messiah who they are eagerly waiting to be revealed. There are many testimonies from individuals on the internet who believe this man shall be Barack Obama who may be the biblical Antichrist. I myself have had unusual dreams concerning Barack Obama. He got on stage declaring himself to be a follower of Christ with no affiliation to the Muslim faith, however it was later revealed by his own family members that he certainly is a religious Muslim.

    His actual birth name is said to be Barry Soetoro, and he had his name changed to Barack Obama. But why?

    Jesus says, “And He said to them, ‘I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven'” (Luke 10:18).

    In Hebrew, the name “Barack” means “lighting”, and the usage of “Bama” (Strongs Hebrew word 1116) is used to mean the “heights” of heaven.

    The day after the election of Barack Obama (11/04/08), the winning select three lotto numbers in Illinois (Obama’s domestic state) for 11/5/08 were 666.

    Obama was formerly a U.S. senator for the state of Illinois, and his zip code was 60606.

    Regardless, whoever seats himself in the Third Temple that is to be built in Jerusalem, declaring themselves to be God WILL BE THE ANTICHRIST. DO NOT BE LEAD ASTRAY.

    Why do we need Jesus Christ?

    “for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God” (Romans 2:23).

    “For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord” (Romans 6:23).

    Our good works can’t save our souls from the wrong we’ve committed. If we step in front of a judge in the court of law, being responsible of a crime, the judge won’t judge us by the good that we’ve accomplished, but rather the crimes we’ve committed. If we as fallen humanity, created in God’s image, pose this kind of moral justice, how much more a perfect, righteous, and Holy God?

    God has delivered to us His ethical regulation’s by means of the 10 commandments received by Moses at Mt. Siani. These laws were not given so we can be justified, however in order that we could see the need for the savior. They’re the mirror of God’s character of what He has put in each of us, with our conscious bearing witness that we know that it’s wrong to steal, lie, dishonor our parents, and so forth.

    We can attempt to comply with all the moral laws of the 10 commandments, however we will by no means catch up to them to be justified before a Holy God. The same word of the law received by Moses manifested as flesh over 2000 years ago in the body of Jesus Christ. He came to be our justification by perfectly fulfilling the law, living a sinless life that solely God could accomplish.

    The space between us and the law of God can in no way be reconciled by our own personal merit, but the arm of Jesus is stretched out by the grace and mercy of God. And if we are to seize hold of, through faith in Him, He will pull us forward being the one to justify us. As inside the court of law, if someone steps in and pays your fine, even though you’re guilty, the judge can do what’s legal and just and let you go free. That is what Jesus did nearly 2000 years ago on the cross. It was a legal transaction being fulfilled in the spiritual realm by the shedding of His blood, with His final words being, “…It is finished!…” (John 19:30).

    So why did Jesus have to die for us?

    Because God is Holy and just, the wrath that we deserve could not go unnoticed. Through the perfect righteousness and justice of God’s character, it ought to be dealt with, it must be quenched and satisfied.

    For God takes no pleasure in the demise of the wicked (Ezekiel 18:23). That is why in Isaiah chapter 53, where it speaks of the coming Messiah and His soul being a sacrifice for our sins, why it says it satisfied God to crush His only begotten Son.

    That is because the wrath that we deserve was justified by being poured out upon His Son. For if it was poured out on us who have earned it, we would all perish and go to hell. God created a way of escape by pouring it out on His Son who’s soul could not stay in Hades, but was raised and seated at the right hand of God in power.

    So now after we put on the Lord Jesus Christ (Romans 13:14), God no longer looks at the person who deserves His wrath, but now the glorious image of His perfect Son residing in our hearts, justifying us as if we received the wrath we deserve, making a way of escape from the curse of death.

    Now what we must do is turn from our sins and trust in the saviour, confessing and turning from our sins. That is not just a head knowledge of believing in Jesus, howeverrather receiving His words, taking them to heart. Where we no longer live to exercise sin, but turn away from our sins and practice righteousness:

    “Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor sodomites, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom of God. And such were some of you. But you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus and by the Spirit of our God” (1 Corinthians 6:9-11).

    By doing so we will become transformed into the image of God by faith in His Son Christ Jesus Who’s willing to provide the Holy Spirit to people who ask of Him:

    “Most assuredly, I(Jesus) say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Do not marvel that I said to you, ‘You must be born again.’ (John 3:5-6).

    “But you are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God dwells in you. Now if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he is not His” (Romans 8:9).

    Now what are you waiting for? Our Father in heaven only desires the best for us all, restoring every thing this world has stolen from us. This is what it means to be “holy”. To be made whole.

    He’s waiting to hear from you. That God given tongue to speak language, by means of faith, pray to Him, ask Him to forgive you by confessing to Him your sins and be willing to forsake them; that you receive the sacrifice of His Son Jesus on the cross, and that you want His Holy Spirit living inside you transforming you into a child of the living God.

    Jesus says, “but whoever drinks of the water that I shall give him(the Holy Spirit) will never thirst. But the water that I shall give him will become in him a fountain of water springing up into everlasting life.”

    Did you know that Jesus spoke more about hell than anybody else in the holy scriptures, even more than He spoke about heaven?! For this very purpose He came to die for us, to save us from this place that we earned by our sins.

    He describes hell as a actual place where,

    “Their worm does not die
    And the fire is not quenched” (Mark 9:44).

    And where,

    “There will be weeping and gnashing of teeth…” (Luke 13:28).

    Jesus tells us who to fear,

    “And do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. But rather fear Him who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell” (Matthew 10:28).

    “Now I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away. Also there was no more sea. Then I, John, saw the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a loud voice from heaven saying, ‘Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and He will dwell with them, and they shall be His people. God Himself will be with them and be their God. And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away.’

    Then He who sat on the throne said, ‘Behold, I make all things new.’ And He said to me, ‘Write, for these words are true and faithful.’

    And He said to me, ‘It is done! I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. I will give of the fountain of the water of life freely to him who thirsts. He who overcomes shall inherit all things, and I will be his God and he shall be My son. But the cowardly, unbelieving, abominable, murderers, sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death.'” (Revelation 21:1-8).

    Out of all of the world religions, how can we make certain the Bible has it right? The scientific facts has established and continues to support that the universe once had a starting point wherein space, time and matter had been created. Many know this as the big bang.

    “The non-biblical religions tell us that god or god’s create within space and time that eternally exist. The Bible stands alone and says that time and space don’t exist until God creates the universe.” – Astronomer(Phd) Hugh Ross

    The Bible not only got it correct that space, time and matter all came into existence at the beginning of the universe, it additionally states in 7 different scriptures that the universe is expanding 1000’s of years earlier than scientists discovered these things.

    Did you know that the real Noah’s Ark was discovered in the place where the Bible instructed us it’d be with the right dimensions? As well as proof for the destruction of Sodom & Gomorrah and the Exodus account of the Red Sea crossing?

    The Bible is by far the most translated and studied historical book in the history of the world, filled with predictive prophecies, matching what we find in the book of nature. Would not you count on God’s word to be so?
