Do you let your job define your identity? Do you hustle and strive even at the cost of your family? I used to. 2017 was that year for me. A bit more of a personal post today….As an entrepreneur owning my own faith+fitness business, I just wanted to make a difference and provide for my family financially. But then I began to chase success rather than Jesus. 2018 is different. Here is what I can tell you now.
Coaching is not my identity…it’s a placement and position where I can make an impact every day and help my family financially. I no longer hustle and strive trying to force success. I believe my only responsibility is to be faithful in loving people, serving them, encouraging them, sharing with them, providing them with quality programs + tools, asking them questions, inviting them to pursue Jesus and take care of their health with me, and lead my team with humility…then the outcome is in the hands of God. If I succeed, it is because God allowed it. It takes His grace and sovereignty + me owning and committing to my daily responsibilities…the outcome is His.
One of the scriptures my dad shared with my team last night on our team call was from Proverbs 21:31: “The horse is made ready for the day of battle, but victory rests with the Lord.” We have to be prepared and do our part in our work…and then the victory is the Lord’s.
Regardless of what your job is, I pray you understand that your job is not your identity but simply your profession. Honor God in it and work as though you are working for HIM…then trust Him with the rest. You don’t need to let it consume your life and be all you do…you don’t need to strive to the point you neglect your family and other God given responsibilities. Work well in the time you DO have and then leave it. If ever you have considered the coaching business alongside myself and my team, I hope now you have a better understanding of who I am as a team leader and coach. I don’t want coaching to be your life or consume your life. It would simply be an extra platform to serve, make an impact, and provide for your family. That’s it. Don’t overcomplicate it.
