A majority of young professionals are struggling to figure things out on their own at work and in life.
If you have your direct superior leading you in doing your job well and supporting your career growth, and you have your pastor and young adult leader encouraging and teaching you to grow and live according to the Word of God, you are blessed to be among the very tiny few percentage.
The truth about being a Christian is that, the same victorious power of Christ flows within you, so you just cannot not be excellent at work.
But in reality, you are always pressured and stressful by your work, chasing after deadlines, having a hard time working with your boss.
You work so hard but don't see much growth in your career and personal development.
I know these struggles at work are real.
It's not like you always skip church, you even join the Bible study meetings.
But when you get to the office, it's a different atmosphere altogether.
Even those who say 'amen' with you at church sometimes behave like a totally different person during the board meeting.
You even find yourself raising your voice or getting annoyed super easily at work than when you are at church.
It's because we often keep God in the church
We subconsciously regard our spiritual life as only one part of our life, and feel that a bigger part of our real life happens outside the church.
Actually, God is more involved in your career than you think, for He is the One who gives you the ability to earn (Deuteronomy 8:17-18).
He is not just a God on Sundays or during Christmas. God wants to stay in touch with you every day, especially in your job where you spend most of your waking hours at.
Every time we talk about being a Christian at work, many young adults tell me that they want to be Christlike examples at work, sharing gospel with their non-Christian colleagues. They want to be a blessing to the people around them.
You know what?
The first sign of your testimony is really to simply do well in your job while showing Christ's love to others, especially the terrible people you are dealing with at work.
Doing poorly in your work performance or having grudge against the people you work with certainly does not make a great testimony.
If you are willing, I want to help you to shine among your colleagues, where you can confidently share your opinions at key meetings, your boss appreciates your contribution to the team, the top management thinks about you first when they are considering a candidate for a special opportunity.
I don’t want you to wake up to another quarter of struggling to do your job with your boss, missing another project deadlines, worrying about losing your job, and all the unpleasant working experience which is far from what God has empowered you to enjoy.
For too long, I have seen too many Christians continue to accept a struggling life at work and at home.
I was like that back then, and I never look back after I chose the victorious career life with God.
I also realized that God's promises are for every believer, and Faithful Salt was established to help more Christians to experience God's power in their day-to-day working life.
The fact that you are reading this tells me that you need some career help which may not have been well met at work and in the church.
If what you need is someone experienced enough to coach you into a high-performing corporate career while keeping you accountable to be more like Jesus Christ in your daily working life, you have come to the right place.
I specialize in hitting that sweet spot between corporate career coaching and discipleship training.
Before we dive straight into your work performance
I think we need this heart-to-heart talk for a moment..
How's your personal walk with God in the past 3 months?
I'm not talking about those times when you go to church or do Bible study with your friends once a week.
I'm talking about your personal quiet time with God, especially on your working days.
If you've been spending time with God consistently, you should go ahead and get started with my Stretch-2 Checklist mini email course to start delivering higher quality job assignments.
If not, then read on.
Perhaps you're always busy and tired, juggling with your hectic life day in and day out.
And as your working life started to become busier and more demanding, you have even slowly lost your personal life.
When you finally have some space to breathe, all you want to do is to enjoy your long-lost me-time, maybe chill out for a drink or binge on Netflix while you can.
Slowly, the thought of spending time with God only feels more difficult, and it makes you feel guilty sometimes like you are not a good Christian.
You found a church to go, you downloaded some Bible and devotional apps to your phone, sometimes you read the Daily Bread, but it just feels kind of dry.
You're looking for something deeper with God, which you believe is very hard because you don't have the time, or sometimes we're just honestly lazy.
Then once in a while you met some friends or colleagues sharing about things they did which you know are not right.
You felt like God was telling you to speak truth into their lives. But you just didn't know what to say to them and how to say it.
You want to be a blessing to the people in your life, but you feel like a handicapped Christian sometimes. Like you haven't read enough of the Bible to say the right thing when you want to, or you wonder if God would answer your prayer because you haven't been really praying for a long time.
If that's you, I totally understand that feeling. That was me, too, before I started bringing God back into my working life.
But from now on,
You don't have to feel Guilty about not having quiet time with God any more
For I've prepared everything you need to start spending a quality moment with God again right now.
