Are you utilizing your skills and talents to fulfill your vocational calling? If your answer is no, determine to be on purpose in 2019. Like the minister who is called to shepherd the flock, you are called to a particular career and/or position. Guess what? Being on purpose is serious business. God designed you to flourish in a particular setting. It is your place of provision. Instead of dragging yourself out of bed every morning to go somewhere that sucks your will to live, you wake up motivated- raring to go. You thrive!
By the way, a large percentage of heart attacks occur between Sunday and Monday morning. You know the scenario: TGIF arrives, and you feel relieved having escaped another week of torture. Then, Saturday rolls by before you can blink, and on Sunday you're back where you started - dreading Monday morning. Still, you choose to endure the madness. Don't beat yourself up; you're not alone. More than half of the workforce is out of place! It contributes to poor customer service, bad leadership, low morale, high turnover, stress, health issues, depression, anger, and disharmony among workers.
Nevertheless, you can be the change. First, decide to live on purpose. Success is not luck or an accident; success is planned. Purpose plus action equals results. Second, make a commitment to cross the finish line. Quitting is not an option. You will have to account for wasting your talents. Finally, anticipate adversity. No one said life would be a bed of roses. With that said, use the pricks and prods to push you. Begin today. Plan your work, and work your plan.
