Think a minute…There’s a best-selling book entitled, Do What You Love And The Money Will Follow. It explains that if you’re passionate and good at your job, then you will be happy and successful at your job. Passion is loving and believing something no matter how hard it is to get there. It’s like a powerful river that will make its way through no matter what.
But first, you and I must choose work that we enjoy and are good at. And that’s not always easy.
In fact, sometimes it takes a lot of courage to change jobs! Especially for those of us who were taught we should choose work that’s secure and pays well even if you hate it! After all, it’s only a job, right? The problem is you spend so much of your life at work, so if you hate your job you’re going to hate much of your life!
Most successful people have had to face this same fear of changing jobs. They just did it anyway. So ask yourself:
“Do I want to spend the rest of my life at a job I’m not that good at? Or a job I don’t enjoy?”
If you don’t, do you have the courage to change jobs so you can start doing something you are good at and enjoy? Think…if you improve your skill and go all the way in training for that new job or career, could you become successful?
Of course, if you have a family to take care of and provide for, then you must be very careful and responsible before you make this kind of big change. You should probably start slowly and carefully by first trying your new work a little on the side or just part-time.
Then if it goes well, you’ll have more experience and confidence to know you can support your family with this new kind of work.
However, there’s one person who can help you know what you yourself are good at, and that’s the One Who made you. No one knows you better than your own Creator.
He knows what He designed you to do well! So why not ask Jesus right now to forgive you for living your own way?
Then ask Him to take full charge of your life and career. It’s not until you start living for Jesus His way that you will finally find your place in life, so you can start enjoying the satisfaction of real success. Just Think a Minute…
