THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN YOUR WORK AND YOUR JOB

Your job is what you are paid to do, your work is what you were born to do.
Your job is your skill, your work is your gift.
You can be fired from your job, you can’t be fired from your work.
You can retire from your job, you can’t retire from your work.

The innate understanding of your divine responsibility is what gives your life a focused bearing. Your work was created by God, but your job was created by men. What would you rather do: put more effort into growing the seed God has planted into you, or waste your time seeking jobs you weren’t born to do.

Don’t quote me wrong, this doesn’t mean you should hate your professional career, it could be what your were born to do (it could be your work), the purpose of this is that you understand who you are really working for, for God or for Men.
What is your work?

Life Began with Strife

[Life… it all began with strife]

A quick look into the past,
the day we took our first breath,
a loud cry! we made,
coupled with feelings of hurt and pain.
Thinking in our little heart… “what a world of strain.”

[Life… with the poking of little knives]

Time flew as age began to grow,
mistakes became a daily blow,
with little flaws often leading to big spanks.
Failure, also a daily routine
while the results of success was seldom seen.

[Life… an epic saga of Love]

The conquest of pain begat gain,
with every fall to the ground a crown was found.
Subtle heights were attained in the crafts of loftiness,
but the challenges came in fuss, muss, and truss.
A life that started in sorrow became a life of mellow.

…it all began with strife,
with the poking of little knives
thankfully, it’s just a saga of love

An Idle Brood Over the Ears

The hollow of the ear is never appeased
it peeps and peaks without the owner’s heed
putting the mouth in dire straits
while the body suffers higher consequences.

The mouth closes
so does the eyes
but the ears stays open
devouring every utterance in its path.

Your ears won’t stop hearing
But the words of your mouth can always be cautioned.

Problems are Good!

The full potential of an average man is never brought to light unless he encounters an unexpected form of danger, disappointment, or distress. Scientists would call this the result of an “adrenaline rush,” which is right, but there is actually more to it.

Problems and challenges shouldn’t always be perceived as a counteractive part of life. If God allows evil to persist, such evil will definitely result in good, but sometimes it depends on our level of spiritual understanding. Understanding gives us the innate ability to see the light out of darkness, and of course, the good out of evil.

The negativities of life are meant to align us into discovering  our strengths. A man can never grow strong in his comfort zone, he has to be endangered before he becomes empowered.

Take Little Steps

Theories and Practicals must go hand in hand for you to make constant progress in your academic/professional field of study, irrespective of its difficulty or easiness.

The study of theories makes us overlook the need to practice, because of its vague and deceiving simplicity.
Just as we all quote “things are easier said than done.”
This all comes down to understanding the profound concept of “words without action.”

A new year resolution is more or less like an aspired THEORY, but a theory needs to be fed with constant practice before it becomes effectual, worthwhile and a little productive. “Sometimes the smallest step in the right direction ends up being the biggest step of your life.” Don’t wait for the perfect time to start making plans towards achieving your goals, there is no such thing as ‘perfect time,’ we only have TIME, and it keeps going without caution.

“A little step here, a little step there, and pretty soon all steps will end up becoming a big heap.”
