I wanted it all.. And i kept chasing it all. The thrill was exhilarating…
And then i found myself in sales where it is believed you can literally write your cheque.. Its upon you to decide how much you want to earn at the end of the month.
Every morning i woke up and put my best foot forward even with my laid back nature i was willing to sell to as many people as much as possible and it wasn’t easy and i wasn’t the best… Yes i won some and lost a many some but i kept pushing on non-stop.
Every conversation at this point in time was selling and i wasn’t sure if i truly had meaningful relationships or i was just nesting until i could hit the gold mine😂😂😂
This was the life.. Monday to sunday looking for prospects and at some point it got tiring but the pressure was real.. I had to make it or i would need to have an answer as to why i didn’t have a sale😥
But now i realize its all vanity, i was all about self. Right now i don’t even know why i wanted the things I wanted. I needed so desperately to prove a point to the world that I had it.. That i had made it, i wanted to own a house people would come and be amazed at, then they would know just how successful i was. With everything prim and neat.. What lie. What a deception.
Your employer’s main agenda is to give you targets and sell this brilliant idea of how your achievement can earn you so much. So you keep pushing but its never enough but you keep at it then you slowly begin to lose you. Q
What does it profit you to gain all this riches and literally have no one to share it with? The friends you have are business acquaintances.. And you have become a stranger to your family?
I walked away to follow God’s voice. And His calling on my life and soon i began to realize that the very things i needed can never be bought with money. Money gets you fake friends who love until its all gone. Money can’t give you peace, money can’t buy you love… But God? He gives you a sense of Purpose and direction. He gives you the real meaning of living
I walked away to discover what it is that gives me purpose and as i journeyed in prayer i realized i have wealthy hands.. We all do actually..
I love to create recipes and menu’s and i love the look of satisfaction on my clients faces after service. But then i also discovered i love training people how to cook and i began asking God how much more can i do? And i realized people want to start businesses but are afraid or need an upgrade in their kitchen or a new skill set and i will be honest. The thank you’s i receive is worth so much more than any amount of money anyone could pay😀
This year i found what gives me peace and joy and its derived from the looks i get from the people i have been called to help. Nothing i have is mine to keep. No gift, no talent is mine to keep. When I share my culinary skills with others i find joy.
Recently I got an invitation to go on a mission to equip people in the catering business and I packed my bags so fast and off i went and this is what gives meaning to life for me. Knowing that someone somewhere is flourishing because i offered a helping hand.
They may forget me. May never pay me but my Father in heaven is happy i made a difference
Someone can learn a thing or two from you, teach it. Show them how you so it. We are mostly driven by money but how about giving back by sharing your skills with someone today who may not be able to afford the college fees but has a desire to learn and start something?
This is how we slowly begin to eradicate poverty and raise hard working citizens who then are able to provide for their families
