Unleash Your Inner Warrior
“We try, when we wake, to lay the new day at God’s feet; before we have finished shaving, it becomes our day and God’s share in it is felt as a tribute which we must pay out of ‘our own’ pocket, a deduction from the time which ought, we feel, to be ‘our own’. A man starts a new job with a sense of vocation and, perhaps, for the first week still keeps the discharge of the vocation as his end, taking the pleasures and pains from God’s hand, as they came, as ‘accidents’. But in the second week he is beginning to ‘know the ropes’: by the third, he has quarried out of the total job his own plan for himself within that job, and when he can pursue this he feels that he is getting no more than his rights, and when he cannot, that he is being interfered with.”
My dear warrior,
Over the last year I have often found myself struggling with the idea of job satisfaction. In jobs like mine, it seems to come with the territory to ‘live for the weekend.’ Working 8-5, having weekends and major holidays off, accruing vacation days for a few days off here and here or a proper vacation if you so desire. People spend their weekends either drinking and partying, or working on their houses and spending it with their families—depending on their goals and priorities. Me? I spend my free time with family, writing blogs and books, training martial sciences, bodybuilding, making art and being creative. But somehow (particularly with the long, dark days in which I saw no sunlight during my days in a windowless office), life seemed to become dimmer. That feeling of being ‘stuck’ in a job began to overwhelm me. That is, until a single conversation changed my perspective.
“Man finds it hard to get what he wants, because he does not want the best; God finds it hard to give, because He would give the best, and man will not take it.”
The way the world is now, people think they deserve everything, and do not understand that there is a difference between being worthy and being deserving. Have you ever stopped to think about if you actually deserve something? Or if you are actually worthy of them?
