This is an Inspirational Article on How to Make Work a Means rather than an End. We live in a very competitive society where people are being judged on appearances, material gain, material achievements and so on. Work has become an enslaver so much so that families get destroyed, many go through a burnout experience, some get depressed, others get frustrated, others lose themselves in the process… The thing is work should be a means to an end, not the end. The question is, do we know what is the end we would like to achieve? Can we clearly picture it? It is not just a matter of being rich. It goes deeper than that, the end should be to have a balanced, fulfilling, happy, peaceful life. This Inspirational Article on How to Make Work a Means rather than an End seeks to help us consciously shift all the negative impact work can have on each and everyone of us, to attract a life of favor.
I just love the name Emmanuel : “God is with us”. It resonates with me. How does it apply to us? How does it fit in our daily lives? In my humble opinion, this is powerful in the sense that it clearly indicates that everything starts from within.
Here are 5 points I think will help you take control over work, to use it as a means to an end rather than as the end and to decide on where you want to be.
- Define the end you would like to achieve.
- Find a strong why
- Find your priorities
- Know who you are and know your worth
- Assess your physical, mental and emotional well-being.
That said, once we have clearly defined the end we want to achieve, have found our muse and why we are applying ourselves so much at work, have found our priorities, have realized who we are and what we can accept or not from others and assessed our physical, mental and emotional well-being, we can easily see that Work has definitely a place in our life but it has to respect some boundaries.
It is not easy as it requires to be willingly conscious of what is happening to us at every moment of our lives and it requires to take action and to snap out of the autopilot mode.
This Inspirational Article on How to Make Work a Means rather than an End seeks to acknowledge the existing challenge but also to highlight the fact that God, the Source of everything, the Almighty, is with us, He is within us and therefore, we have been endowed with the necessary tools to overcome every single obstacle in our lives, be it in our families, in our work environment, in our circle of friends, in our own spiritual life, whatever it is, we have the strength and energy to overcome it.
