I don’t do well when I have to hustle. But I have found a key to success … for me. And it's more relational than hustle. Let me explain.
It wasn’t too long ago that I had these thoughts - How the heck do they do all that! How have they grown their business so easily? Why don’t I have results like that? Do I have to put in more hours? Am I going after the wrong things? Am I seeking my will not God's will?
Is that you too?
I’ve learned that a spirit of striving isn’t from God. And as a believer, anything NOT from Him will be blocked. Why? Because I’ve prayed and asked God to show me where He’s working. I want to partner with God. And in His grace, if I’m off course He will direct me back though opposition and alert me with a feeling of striving.
But when it is from Him I will see open doors through connection and have peace. Sometimes there is opposition but lacks striving and peace still remains.
There are some universal truths for any person, career, and personality. This is one of them.
But what makes one person feel like striving and another not is because of gifting and talent. In order to find success in your life, you need to be in alignment with how God made you.
Do you know how he made you? Do you know your strengths? Knowing this will help you be a great leader.
“No leader sets out to be a leader. People set out to live their lives, expressing themselves fully. When that expression is of value, they become leaders. So the point is not to become a leader. The point is to become yourself, to use yourself completely – all your skills, gifts and energies – in order to make your vision manifest. You must withhold nothing. You, must, in sum, become the person you started out to be, and to enjoy the process of becoming.” – Warren Bennis, On Becoming a Leader
I’m passionate about helping people discover and walk in peace and joy without striving. I do this through teaching and speaking ... but also through coaching. That’s where I find the favor of God on my life. It may be different for you.
Let me help you discover who you were made to be too.
