Stand out

When Mercy Chinwo started singing gospel music, she was advised by some people to substitute the name ‘Jesus’ in her song for ‘Baba’ or ‘Father’ in order to attract everyone. She faced rejection but it did not deter her. Mercy wasn’t ashamed to stand out even when it meant standing alone. If she has to wait, she waits because she believes that waiting is part of the process. At some point, she was rejected, but she saw it as an a test of faith and time.

In life and in business, dare to be different. There has to be something unique about you and your business if you want to stand out

  9. Big lessons to me (1): when you start, many will advise you in different ways base on their views but keep and stick to what you know, believe and be convinced it’s right by God leading. It’s not about attracting all (everybody) but attracting and pulling Him (God), that is the co-founder of all. (2): I may be rejected and cast away, but God has not rejected and will never cast me away; so far as I maintain a relationship with Him (God). (3): start small but dream big and hold unto your dreams. Keep your passion for God; He will surely see you through.

    “Mercy songs do inspire me so much that I have many and do listen to it all times.
