"WHAT IF YOUR WORK WERE YOUR CALLING?"

FOR MANY MEN, WORK FEELS LIKE A CURSE, A DRUG, A BURDEN, AN IDENTITY, A CRUTCH, A BATTLE, A SHOW....

...BUT IT DOESN'T NEED TO BE THAT WAY.

If you're  working in a high-performance industry or company, you may be feeling or thinking some of the following:

  • Stress and tension from uncertainty or pressures
  • Exhaustion because of the amount of work you have
  • Anxiety from internal dynamics, such as office politics or restructuring
  • Discontent because the work doesn't truly "feed your soul"

In a moment, you'll learn how you can experience a greater sense of Peace, Purpose, and Presence in your career.


As a result, you'll have less stress and anxiety. 


You'll experience greater clarity in the direction of your career. 


You may even begin to experience greater joy and better relationships in your current job or career.


Your career could advance with less striving and conniving.


You'll also be able to build a strong foundation that will help you survive the inevitable challenges of bad bosses, poor economy, office politics, or "restructuring."


Even if you already enjoy your career as it is, you'll avoid the bumps that often hit very successful men, such as burnout, broken relationships, damaged families and marriages, and even early death.


Instead, you'll have a greater sense of "peace" instead of anxiety when it comes to work -- not a mindless "turn off your brain and just trust God" kind of peace, but one that is rooted in a much deeper transformation.


You'll find a greater sense of "calling" in life, an "anchor" in the world of work that can make the mundane meaningful and the boring beautiful.  You would be building a career filled with "purpose."


You'll also stop separating the spiritual from the workplace, and tap into the "Presence" of Christ in your life with true rest and contentment.


If you're like most men, you probably assume that such levels of Peace, Purpose and Presence just aren't possible in your line of work.


You pursue those things all "outside" of work -- perhaps through church or recreation.


But there's a risk in living such as "split-life."


It's natural, but often not talked about it.


And as a result, you probably are relying on your natural "wiring" of having an "on-off" switch.


You turn "on" your spiritual self when you're with the right people or in the right environment.


You turn your spiritual self "off" when you're at work.


But this is actually the unseen source of many problems which you'll learn as you read further.

What Happens Because Men are Wired with an "On-Off" Switch to Their Relationship with Work and God?

You may have heard that men's brains are like an "on-off" switch.


You probably have not heard this description in the context of work and God. 


But as you'll soon learn, it's a natural instinct which has can create subtle, yet damaging results, your life.


You "on-off" switch gives you the ability to compartmentalize parts of your life.  It gives you the ability to focus on a given task at hand.


Both of these traits help at work, especially in high-performance jobs.


Yet, unless this subconscious "on-off" switch is truly addressed, your natural instinct can slowly corrode your soul.


Not in a "salvation" sense.


But your ability to turn parts of your brain "on" or "off" may be in the way of  feeling true Peace, Purpose, and Presence in your life.


In whatever stage of your career, and in whatever industry you may be in, the true bottom-line will be the state of your soul.


Especially if you don't typically think about your "soul," you need to keep reading.


Perhaps the pressures, demands, or thrill of work have distracted or numbed you from looking deep within yourself or inviting God to search your heart and ask how much peace, purpose and presence you are experiencing through work right now.


Work can be good when you are called.


But the demands and values of high-performance careers can also cause you to make small, imperceptible choices which can, years later, leave your soul feeling empty and remiss.


Jesus himself asked:

And what do you benefit if you gain the whole world but lose your own soul? Is anything worth more than your soul?

(Matthew 16:26)

THE HIDDEN THREAT OF HIGH-PERFORMANCE

Having a high-performance career can give you the satisfaction, income, community, and stimulation that makes you happy. 


It can even extend your personal ministry of connecting with co-workers or supporting.


When you have or pursue such a career, you are putting your talents and passions to work. 


You are putting yourself into situations where you can develop your character and leadership skills.


There is much to appreciate about the high-performance career.


Creative, hard-working, and responsible people often are the same people who pursue high-performance careers.  If you're reading this, you probably have many of these good attributes.


So this article is not to downplay or criticize having or seeking such a career.


It is, however, to make you aware of the potential cost.


Your workplace is demanding.


It demands your time, effort, and energy.


It has an insatiable appetite.


You work could take everything you have to give.


It can take more than you can ever sacrifice. 


No matter how much you give, it will never be enough.


The rewards may seem to be worth it.  Great, high-performing jobs often have enticing, seductive rewards.


These rewards, however, are fleeting.  They lure you down a path of seeming satisfaction.  But will only leave you hungry for more.


That's not the only cost of living in a high-performance culture, however.


There's an even more subtle and insidious cost of living a life in pursuit of high performance: you begin to view the world and yourself through the lens of performing for rewards.


This mindset was, however, the very thing Jesus came to free the world from.


Before I go further, I am not advocating that the world treat every one exactly the same, no matter the quality of the work they product.  This is how the real world works.  And there are legitimate truths and character-building aspects of consequences and rewards, or encouraging high-quality work.


Remember the "on-off" switch?


When you turn "on" the drive, the performance orientation -- it's very difficult to turn it "off" when it comes to matter of your spirit and your soul.


Yes, you understand it intellectually.


But it's very easy and very common for this mentality to encroach upon your relationship with God, your view of church, and your own spiritual journey.


Before Jesus, many people, spurned on by the religious leaders of the time, believed the path to God was paved with good performance.


It was believed by many that reaching goals, following the guidelines, gaining approval, and presenting the right appearance could one enter the Kingdom.


This is what was the path to destruction that Jesus wanted to save you and me from.


He knew that if we tried to carry the burden of righteousness and morality on our own strength, we would fail.


This is the performance mentality that can corrode your soul.


But this performance mentality can sneak in and sully our relationship with God.


Christ's display of righteous anger was directed towards this performance culture in the temple where an actual marketplace was set up.


Jesus' displeasure came not from the fact people were setting up shop, engaging in commerce found in the marketplace.  The mistake many people make is believing that, based on this verse, Christ looked down on those operating in the marketplace.


It was because the money changers and dove salesmen were selling goods for righteousness before God.  They were offering a way for people to buy their way into the Kingdom.


Isn't this thought the underlying premise of performance?


Even if you don't consciously believe this, when your life is seeped into the need to perform, that value system affects how you view yourself and others.


It's the opposite of the very reason Jesus came.


And it's the opposite of what will ultimately refresh your soul.


It's easy to over-spiritualize to the point of confusion the power of grace.


Yet it is that very thing which will free you from anxiety, greed, worry, exhaustion, and discontent that can spring forth from the soil of the high-performance workplace.


YOU HAVE AN IMPORTANT CHOICE TO MAKE:

There's Only One Path to Truly Thriving in a Performance Culture

You have a choice.


The false choice is believing you need to either quit your job or suffer under the pressure.


While changing vocation can and should make sense at the right time, it's not the real choice you need to make.


The choice is to either accept and absorb the implications of high-performance.  Or to challenge it and replace it with a different world view.


This world view is one where you receive the unmerited favor of God, not through your work and effort, but through Christ alone.


Here's the problem with this approach.


Most men understand this in concept.  


But that on-off switch has separated the spiritual asset from the workplace.  


"Balance" has become the codeword for separation of the spiritual and work.


That approach can't work.  As long as one part of your life continues to be driven by performance, that part will always encroach upon your family, your rest, and your soul.


While the foundation is the power of grace, how does that translate to a world of office politics, competitive markets, and demanding bosses?


How can you experience true career growth without sacrificing your children, your health, or your family at the altar of higher and higher performance?

MIGHTY: THE MAN'S GUIDE TO THRIVING AT WORK, IN RELATIONSHIPS, AND WITHIN YOUR SOUL THROUGH DISTINCTIONS

THE TEN-MODULE ONLINE TEACHING AND COACHING MASTERCLASS

MODULE 1

DRIVEN vs CALLED

The foundation for most men in high-performance roles is making the clear distinction between being Driven and being Called.  The differences are subtle, because one can easily deceive oneself.


However, when you are able to press into this distinction and look honestly within under the cover of God's grace, you will be able to see the world and your work with a new light.

MODULE 2

STARVING vs FILLED

Being filled or feeling starved comes results in an attribute which impacts many men and the decisions they make.  That attribute: worthy.  The starving man feels unworthy, and while that feeling probably doesn't operate at the conscious level, it still can gnaw at one's soul.


Unaddressed, feelings of unworthiness leads to striving, anger, loss of self control, depression, isolation, bingeing.  The man who is Filled, however, lives a life secure in his Worthiness.

MODULE 3

BUSY vs BUILDING

While a man living in the high-performance world shouldn't have idle hands, often he makes the mistake of just being busy, rather than building.  


The busy life is one filled with distraction, stress, endless stream of to-do's, projects, and goals.  The building life leaves behind something of substance both in this world and in people's lives.  Eliminating busyness does not automatically mean you are building.

MODULE 4

PRIDE vs HUMILITY

Being religious doesn't protect you from pride.  Yet, it is perhaps the primary source of downfall in men.  


This distinction is subtle and hard to detect.  Yet without conscious awareness, you may be making mistakes which hurt your career and closest relationships.

MODULE 5

PASSIVE vs LEADING

Most people draw the distinction between "follow" and "lead."

But this is the wrong distinction


There are times when the right move is to follow, instead of trying to lead.


The right distinction which I believe men need to be aware of is "passive" versus "leading."

MODULE 6

COVET vs SACRIFICE

The natural instinct is to covet, to seek what one wants.  But the opposite of the coveting heart is the sacrificial one.


This means being able to ask oneself what are you willing to give up in life?


The world and our natural instinct fosters and encourage covetousness, both at work and in relationships.



MODULE 7

REGRET vs REDEMPTION

Whether you are responsible for a team or are an individual contributor, you have a choice of whether you want to lead or be a follower.



MODULE 8

RESENT vs RESTORE

Whether you are responsible for a team or are an individual contributor, you have a choice of whether you want to lead or be a follower.



MODULE 9

FEAR vs COURAGE

If you were to peel back the layers on a man, there's often fear.  Fear of failure, fear of the unknown, fear of missing out, fear of rejection.


This fear can be so painful, it just paralyzed man from moving forward.    In this module, we'll talk about the typical fears and how to begin to face them with full courage.

MODULE 10

DEEP vs SHALLOW

Nobody would ever call themselves "deep."  


Yet, the ability to let the deep call to the deep, seek out a truth within your soul, and may make the difference in whether your soul can rest at work and in relationships.
