Your Job, Career or Calling?

Last night I had a very important conversation with one of our Sisters in Christ who found herself in a dilemma. She had been working hard to move upward in the company where she works now but for some ‘strange’ reason nothing that she did really worked. But there was ONE INTERESTING THING in her story….God kept on talking to her in different ways about her Calling.

When she was in a church service, when she was having a conversation with someone or whenever she was listening to inspiring christian programs she clearly kept on hearing GOD’S VOICE saying: “Let it go!” But because of her fear of the unknown she didn’t respond to God’s voice.

Last night she couldn’t do it anymore….it was too much for her, it was too clear!

 

Get Clarity & Make a Decision

 I am THE LIFE CALLING STRATEGIST so of course I knew what was going on. I knew she was afraid to go for her Calling and that she was worried about financial security if she didn’t have/keep a full time job (or worked more than 24 hours a week).

It’s my Calling to help you overcome your fears and doubts so you can develop the right mindset when it comes to your Calling. So I told her what God showed me during our conversation. It immediately opened her eyes, changed her emotions and gave her the confidence to let go and FOCUS ON GOING FOR HER CALLING! Glory to God!

I know she had made the right decision because God had been talking to her already for months but her fear was stopping her from responding to God’s Voice.

 

NOT the only one

 I am sharing this short story with you because I know that she is NOT THE ONLY ONE who has this problem. God is speaking to you as well and I would love to have a conversation like this with you too.

If you recognize yourself in her story OR if you are ready to take the first steps towards your Calling, contact me asap so we can have a Sister/Brother To Sister conversation about this!

Work-Life Balance

I LOVE TO DO RESEARCH about what can improve our lives and what can help us to become better people. The best part of doing research is when I understand how to apply the new knowledge in my own life so that I can benefit from it as soon as possible.wo-liThere is one subject that I find very interesting at the moment and that is Work-Life Balance.

Research shows us that more than 40% of the people who work are neglecting other aspects of their life because of work. I see this as a very important warning. When we give up the things that are good for us it will always effect us emotionally, mentally and/or physically. And that means that we will not be able to work at our best! It makes us unhappy working people when we don’t develop and express ourselves in every area. A good personal life is important for everyone of us because we need to work on our personal development,  spend time with our friends or family members, take walks in the park, visit a gym, go on holidays, enjoy a hobby and so on.

 

There are different things you can do to help yourself:
  1. doing your best to work smart instead of long. It is smart to decide how much time you want to (or will) spend on your tasks.
  2. saying something about it when you see or feel that the work demands are becoming to much for you. When you say something about it you are giving your teamleader or manager the chance to do something about it.
  3. you can also take a look here to see how I can help and support you if you decide to work on this in your own way and in your own time

 

There are also different ways an organization can help their staff.
  1. sharing information with employees about work-life balance
  2. training managers more about this subject so that they can protect their staff from experiencing mental and physical problems.
  3. allowing  staff to attend supportive meetings and/or activities during working hours as they would for other medical appointments. This way, everyone will benefit from this in the long term.
