Taking Risks…Even in a ‘Bad’ Economy

He had a stable job. He enjoyed it for the most part. But…he knew there was something more. He wanted to use his God-given talents to do something else…something more.

 

Many would tell him ‘Are you crazy to look for a different job? You should just be happy with what you…

Fear of not finding your calling?

 

Fear of giving up a secure job?

Fear of God being angry if you make a poor choice?

Can Your Calling Change?

I hear this question often: Can’t my calling change over time?

 

It’s a legitimate question. One that we should wrestle with.

The things we do in life…the things we do in our jobs, they will change over time.

For example, I’ve moved from technical roles to people-focused roles over…

Take Risks in Your Calling

Are you willing to take some risks?

 

I don’t mean eating Chinese instead of Mexican tonight.

 

I mean taking a significant risk…that could result in significant reward.

 

I’m just getting ready to go to the country of Georgia. I’m fired up about engaging with people across cultures (as I always am when I go on such a trip …:)

Pursuing My Calling…in the Republic of Georgia

By the time you read this, I’ll be on my way to the country of Georgia.

 

Why the globetrotting you ask??

 

It’s written on my DNA. I can’t help it.

 

Ever since I was a teenager, I’ve had a love for crossing cultures. As I’ve aged, I’ve realized more and more that my calling has a ‘cross-cultural…

Face Your Fear…Take Some Risks!

He’s a great guy. I enjoy talking to him. He’s funny. He’s engaging. He’s talented.

 

But…he just won’t take the risk.

 

A few years ago, he had a business that failed. So, he moved to a more ‘secure’ position.

 

He’s done well there. He’s well respected. Few people would suspect that he’s unhappy.

 

But…he is. He feels drained.…

Do You Surround Yourself with Positive or Negative People??

We all know them. Each of us has someone like this in our lives. They can see the worst in everything….including us.

I call them ‘negative people’.

It doesn’t matter what you want to do, they have a reason that it will fail. It doesn’t matter what your ideas are…they shoot holes in them. It doesn’t matter if you have the biggest revelation from…

Wait on God or Take Action?

I’ve got several Christian friends. I’m a Christian as well.

One of the things I hear often is ‘I want to pray about this before I make a decision’.

Hey…I’m all for that. Seeking God helps me to get things in the right perspective. It reminds me that He’s with me…I’m not in charge of the world.

But…some of these friends pray, then never make a decision. They just…
