Do you have a plan for Creating Wealth?

Before you answer that, are you a person that creates things? I hope the answer to that one is yes, or you will never get wealth.

One more question for you. Speaking of creators, according to the bible, what was the first thing God created?


If you’re looking in the book of Genesis, you’re looking in the wrong place. Flip over to the book of Proverbs, Chapter 8.

The answer is “wisdom.”

The first verse in chapter 8 tells us the section is all about “wisdom.” When we get to verse 22, we read this:

The LORD brought me forth as the first of his works,
before his deeds of old;
I was appointed from eternity,
from the beginning, before the world began.”
Proverbs 8:22-23 (NIV)

What is the importance of this? It depends on what you think the definition of wisdom is.

I tend to think that wisdom is thinking ahead and planning out how you want things to work out. If you make this decision, how will it play out? Or if I make that decision, then what will the consequences be? If you think of it this way, then you might say that it is mapping out your future, or creating a blueprint for future events.

If you think about it this way, then one could argue that what God was doing when he created wisdom was that he was planning out the creation: the universe, the stars and planets, the oceans and even the creatures. And more importantly, he was determining how everything would interact. Does that make sense to you? Or am I just way out on a limb here?

I guess whatever opinion you have what wisdom is, this little patch of text does seem to indicate that God was a planner. We already said that this was part of his nature, so creating wisdom ahead of everything else does tend to agree with everything that came later.

If God is thinking ahead, what about you? Are you setting the stage for creating wealth for your life by making a plan? Do you need help with that plan? If the answer to that is ‘yes’ then I recommend the audio program by Kevin Hogan called the Millionaire Mind Home Study Program. It is the comprehensive start you need to transform thinking and take out the learning curve of decades!

This program is unique in its approach; and more importantly, it works. This is NOT a get-rich-quick scheme nor is it a savings program. It is about radically changing the nonconscious mind… and in less than one month and to literally start accumulating wealth.

With The Millionaire Mind, you are going to be able to easily adopt the beliefs, values, thoughts and attitudes of the most wealthy people on the planet while benefiting your family, friends and community.

The material in this system is so cutting edge, so thoroughly researched… there is nothing better (and that means more EFFECTIVE) on the market. You gotta to have a plan, and this program lays out the foundation. Go get it now!

Question for Today: If you were thinking about starting a new business, or thinking about putting a garden in your back yard, what would be the consequences of not planning things out?

    If you don’t have a vision of the end in mind, it is much more difficult to reach the objectives, in any area of life.

    The typical consequence of not planning ahead are waste of time and energy, subpar results,. missed targets, lack of focus and general aimlessness…

  2. If you don’t have a plan, more than likely you will fail.

  3. Dale Bell says:

    We dont like to fail but alot of the time we fail to plan. If you think of all that had to be done just to create the world God had to have Wisdom in order for the earth be able to sustain itself. There is a huge area for discussion about wisdom. Great post.

  4. Mark says:

    There are many place in the bible that talk about the importance of having a plan. I think wisdom helps us discern what plan is best for the long-haul. I see people that think an emotional decision is “a plan”…

  5. We all need a fooproof plan and an airtight alibi. God’s plan for us is the only one that wasn’t designed by and for fools. Godly wisdom can guide us through the tough times.

  6. I love your interpretation and it makes sense. if you’re going to do anything of value, you have to plan it out first and give it some forethought. Now, if only everyone had wisdom…

  7. […] Remember from my last post, “Wisdom” was the first thing that God created. It was his plans, or blueprints for everything, including how everything relates to each other. No wonder it is so valuable for creating wealth. If you know the secrets to how things work, what is the limits of what you can do? […]

  10. If you look at the Bible, you cannot deny that God is a planner – how many prophecies are in the Old Testament that come to fruition in the New Testament?

    If you do not plan, how do you know where you are going? I suppose there are those people that just hop in their car and drive willy-nilly, but for the most part, we know roughly where we are going before we start. In a garden, if you do not plan, you may end up running out of room before you get all the plants in the ground. Or forget to buy seeds. Or realize that your hose doesn’t reach the plot.

    While spontaneity is ok occasionally, planning will usually work much better.

    Planning is always important. If a teacher doesn’t plan she could forget to teach some important elements of the lesson. So imagine if we consider life… how much more important knowing where we’re going and getting there is….

    You need a plan but sometimes I think we get carried away with planning. Especially as fast as thing change now.


  14. Austin says:

    Were I to not plan, what would happen – animals getting in to the garden, a car engine seizing, or in short NOTHING?

    I still need more wisdom; I’m dumb.

  15. Austin says:

    I don’t think any good thing is stopping me from success but it is suggesting for me to come closer to it. And I can’t go without going; It’s impossible.
