A man without capacity cannot manage and grow any resource including opportunities given him/her. So, for me, it’s always capacity before capital/resources/opportunities.
To build capacity doesn’t necessarily mean to have formal education but includes developing a proven set of skills, expertise and competencies for driving change, fostering resilience and delivering multiple results.
With time, dedication to duty, self improvement and consistency, an apprentice will become a master craftsman.
He/she will have built the requisite capacity for elevation – promotion.
And taking on any new challenge, he/she will have an experience to fall on, the character to defy the storms and the proven tool kits to deliver results.
So before desiring elevation, build capacity. Develop yourself through work, network and further personal/professional courses.
Don’t set yourself up for grand styled failure when God manifest His promise because you weren’t prepared and ready.
As you pray for elevation, continue to build capacity for performance when the time comes.
