The only disability in life, is a bad attitude.
After a career change, this quote rings in my mind. In my last post, I said that I was taking a risk at accepting my new job. It was the one field that I that I was scared of pursuing because of its reputation but the company which I work for contradicts the status quo. I leaned on my own understanding instead of God to guide my footsteps. Now that I have let go and let God, doors I have been waiting to open are open before I get to them.
My point is, it was my attitude, that had to change about the field of work. While I don’t plan to make a career out of this, it is an ends to a means. My outlook on how I was to achieve my goals was so close minded that I didn’t realize that God was using those obstacles to help me in the ways that I wanted as well as needed.
In my field of work, I am still speaking to customers, but in a way that is out of my element. It involves personal information and getting all in their business, which I don’t like for others to do to me but what I had to realize was the difference between the two was I was asking for reasons to help them versus to be mosey and gossip or make them feel embarrassed. It is still something that I struggle with, but everyday I go there. I challenge myself to break past that barrier, and it has been working.
I was apart of a training class and discovered in our reports that I am performing the best. It is more about a paycheck for me. This field actually goes hand in hand with my passion to help people do what they need to do to get to where they need to be. If you struggle with your attitude, I challenge you to break that barrier. You may find that to be what is standing in your way of greatness.
Until Next Time,
