Unleashing the Power of Hunger

In today's competitive business landscape, one quality that can make a significant difference is hunger. Not the hunger for food, but the hunger for success and achievement.

As stated in Proverbs 16:26, “It is good for workers to have an appetite; an empty stomach drives them on.”

This hunger, this burning desire for success, can be the driving force that sets individuals apart and propels them to achieve what others may only dream of.

Les Brown, a renowned motivational speaker, famously said, “You've got to be hungry.” This hunger for success is what separates those who are willing to do what others won't. It is this hunger that pushes individuals to go above and beyond, to work harder, and to continuously strive for excellence. When hiring employees, it is essential to look for this hunger, as it can be a game-changer for your organization.

Unmatched Motivation

Hungry employees have an unmatched motivation that sets them apart from others. They are driven by an insatiable desire to prove themselves and make a mark. This motivation stems from their need to succeed, to provide for their families, and to fulfill their dreams. This hunger for success leads to increased productivity, innovation, and a relentless pursuit of excellence. Hungry individuals are willing to go the extra mile, to put in the extra effort, and to do whatever it takes to achieve their goals.

Adaptability and Resilience

Hungry individuals are more likely to embrace change and adapt to evolving circumstances. Their hunger for success propels them to seek out new skills and knowledge, making them valuable assets in the dynamic work environment. They are not afraid to step out of their comfort zones and take on new challenges. This adaptability allows them to thrive in an ever-changing world and seize opportunities that others might overlook.

Furthermore, hungry employees exhibit resilience in the face of challenges. Their determination to succeed fuels their ability to overcome obstacles and turn setbacks into opportunities for growth. They understand that success requires perseverance and that they cannot let little things like rude comments or setbacks derail their goals. Hungry people operate from their hearts with unshakeable faith, allowing them to stay focused on their dreams and overcome any obstacles that come their way.

Hunger allows for Initiative and Innovation

Hungry workers are proactive and take initiative without waiting for instruction. Their self-motivation and drive lead to increased efficiency and the ability to seize opportunities that others might overlook. When you're hungry, you must create opportunities where others do not see them. The hunger in your belly enables vision and allows you to think outside the box.

The hunger for success often goes hand in hand with a creative mindset. Hungry employees are more likely to think outside the box, bringing fresh ideas and innovative solutions to the table. Their hunger pushes them to constantly seek improvement and find new ways to do things better. This hunger for innovation can drive your organization to stay ahead of the curve and remain competitive in a rapidly changing world.

Hunger Fosters Continuous Improvement and Passion for Learning

Hungry individuals have a constant and never-ending thirst for improvement. They understand that to have the things tomorrow that others would have, they must be willing to do the things today that others won't. This mindset of continuous improvement ensures that your team remains adaptable and at the forefront of industry trends. Hungry employees are always seeking ways to improve and grow, pushing themselves to reach new heights.

Furthermore, hungry individuals have a passion for learning. They are avid learners, always looking to acquire new skills and knowledge. This passion for learning not only benefits their personal development but also contributes to the overall growth and success of your organization. Hungry employees bring a wealth of knowledge and expertise to the table, constantly pushing themselves and their teammates to learn and grow.


Team Collaboration

The hunger for success often translates into a collaborative spirit. Hungry employees are more likely to work seamlessly with others, leveraging their collective skills and experience to achieve the common goals of your organization. They understand that success is not achieved in isolation but through collaboration and teamwork. Hungry individuals are willing to share their knowledge, support their teammates, and go above and beyond to ensure the success of the entire team.

Embrace Hunger for Success

In conclusion, hunger for success can be a strategic move that transforms your organization. Hungry individuals bring unmatched motivation, adaptability, resilience, initiative, innovation, commitment to continuous learning, passion for learning, and a collaborative spirit. These skills can elevate your team to new heights and propel your organization towards unprecedented success.

Whether you are hiring or looking to advance in your career, embrace hunger. Seek out hungry, motivated individuals to be on your team, and cultivate hunger within yourself. Hunger is the driving force that will push you to work harder, think outside the box, and continuously strive for improvement. As Les Brown said, “You've got to be hungry.” So, get hungry, and watch as it propels you towards the success you desire.

The Chinese Bamboo Tree

Your, something greater, will come at the right time. Don’t think because you don’t see any evidence that God is not working on your, something greater.
Think of the, Chinese bamboo tree. A, Chinese bamboo tree, takes five years to grow. It has to be watered and fertilized in the ground where it has been planted every day. It doesn't break through the ground for five years. After five years, once it breaks through the ground, it will grow 90 feet tall in five weeks!
You will be blindsided by your, something greater. Your rapture will come suddenly. One day you will be walking along the street and you will get a phone call. You got the promotion or you got approved for a business loan to start your own company.

How I got my something greater in Love

 About 15 years ago I was just ending a bad relationship, I had been praying to God for years to send me the right man, but I kept hooking up with the wrong men so my relationships did not last. I walked into a train one day going home from work and standing at the door doing a ticket check was my, something greater.
We both knew immediately, because who you seek is seeking you. He was looking for a wife and I was looking for, something greater. Eleven months later we were married. We are coming up to our 16th anniversary. But when I left my house that morning and chose what I was going to wear, I did not know that God was directing my steps, because he knew that by the end of the day my life would change.
How many of you know that the window to the heart is through the eyes. The first attraction is sight! So what I was wearing attracted my husband's attention!
That was my husbands first day on that schedule that is why I hadn’t seen him before. He had just changed shifts. He did not know that God was directing his steps also. He asked God to send him someone nice, a quality woman and he did.


There are no coincidences in life every moment is preordained.
Have faith that, something greater, is coming and even though you can’t see the entire staircase just keep putting one foot in front of the next and you will eventually get to the top and finally your, something greater, will be here.
