How do our actions and relationships fuel our success?
How do we operate in integrity?
What is the model for service?
How to we show kindness and compassion?
How do we treat people with dignity?
If we want to achieve our highest aspirations and overcome our greatest challenges then follow Christ and God’s Word.
This is the foundation of great character and prosperous relationships.
It is the pathway to a powerful life.
When we let our own light shine we give others the permission to do the same.
How Are You Doing?
Today, more than ever, our purpose is about character, delivering value, and developing relationships.
You’ve had successes but just maybe…
- You question the reason for all your hard work.
- You question what has happened to your dreams.
- You wonder if there’s something else that would renew your passion.
- You wonder if there is a way to do what you love and still pay the bills.
- You’re burned out and exhausted.
- You fear breaking away because your financial survival is at stake.
- You feel you’ve been left out or passed by. Others have gotten ahead faster, and you wonder when it’s your turn.
- You’re tired of the status quo. You don’t feel like you can be who you really are and be successful. You’ve ended up being someone else.
- You’ve asking yourself, what’s next. You have the skills and knowledge, but, there’s just something missing.
- You want change but don’t know how to go about it. You’ve done it before but you feel stuck.
It does not have to be that way.
We all have different expectations. Whatever our expectations may be, they impact our demeanor and how we live.
When we focus on ourselves we are filled with thoughts of… money, goals, growth, respect, recognition, autonomy and control. However, when work is self-centered it has less meaning.
Our work becomes meaningful when we contribute to something larger than ourselves. That is, we want to make a difference in the lives of others.
Renewal requires a change in focus. From a focus on what we want to what God wants.
The question is How? In three ways.
- By examining our character. Is our heart in the right place? Is our spirit whole? We shall fix our attention on God and change ourselves from the inside – out. Only God can change our heart and spirit.
- By understanding our value. What gifts and talents has God given us? Are we really using these gifts? Since God is love we ought to love also.
- By developing our relationships. We work with people. Our ministry is conducted for people and by people. How we interact and serve is the basis of ministry and personal success.
Relationships drive business results. An Individual’s success at work is all about character, value, and how people relate to each other.
Biblical truths help us shape our character and teach us how to form relationships and interact with others. To love our neighbor as our self is a most important instruction.
The wisdom in the bible is true – nothing more; nothing less. We need to rely on the bible to teach us principles that, without exception, show us how to fulfill our desires.
From the Bible we learn how to…
- take any situation we’re in and make it work for us.
- develop self-confidence and attract people to us.
- stop worrying about work and start living.
- enjoy our work – enjoy our life.
- never settle for less than we can be in Christ.
- be everything Christ wants us to be.
- reignite the passion we first had and bring to life dormant courage and commitment.
- break down the barriers holding us back and discover how to meet the demands on us knowing that with God nothing is impossible.
- achieve the results most important to us and our families.
It is interesting how the advice in many self-help books and courses can be traced back to biblical truths.
As Christians we don’t need self-help because we have God-help.
We have the power of the living Christ within us.
