Faith, Purpose And Success

I am a strong believer of approaching life, business, work and ministry purposefully, and let my faith lead me to real success. Whatever type of work you do, you should do it with excellence and the aim to grow personally and spiritually through the experiences. Dream big dreams and trust God to help you make some of those dreams come true. Expect God to surprise you along the way. Be most concerned about what you can give rather than what you can get. Trust that God will use difficult situations to accomplish something good in the long run.

In regards to business, I learned from my own and other people's experiences that it is important to strive to do your best to serve your customers, whether they are outside your business or within it. Make the time to truly listen to your customers so you clearly understand what they want. Treat them with respect and kindness. Beyond improving your business -- and your own career success, as a result -- your service to customers is an important way of reflecting God's love in the marketplace.

Invest in mentoring relationships. Build relationships throughout your professional life that can benefit both you and others for years to come by seeking out some mentors and serving as a mentor yourself. Consider what specific ways you hope to grow professionally. One of the ways I am currently doing that is through Success University.

As you interact with people while doing your job, let God's love flow through you to encourage them and help them overcome their challenges, sadness and hopelessness. Keep in mind that God doesn't measure your impact by how impressive your job description is, but by how well you've done your job and demonstrated His love for the people you encounter.

You're bringing God's love to the working place. You're reflecting His mercy and grace as well.
Keep it up, dearest Sister =)
You're shining for Him.

Dearest Audrey,

It's my desire to share His love with the people around me - both in person or on line, not only in the work place, but in all areas of my life as well.

Just like you sis, your love shines through your blog comment and entry =) Thanks so much for that and I really appreciate you =)
