Not growing in your career field, or desire to find a new job? Maybe you struggle with reaching career goals. Are you a slacker at work on purpose because you just don’t want to be there?

What if today you challenge yourself through a few simple questions about yourself?


1. Do you have s positive mental image of yourself achieving your full potential in your career?
2. What emphasis do you place in enhancing the quality of your work or your reason for doing your best?
3. As an individual, do you believe that you have the capacity to envision yourself, bringing positive upgrades to your career or job duties?
4. Is the right to choose that positive change is an ability God gave you to be capable of determining that you can reach positive career goals?
5. Is integrity important to you?


Now reflect on your answers; first, think about your answers and why you believe what you believe. Next, pray; ask God to give you wisdom and boldness to decide to go after every area where you may have discovered a weakness, inadequacy, negative self-image or self-talk, lack of integrity, or simply unbelief?

After you pray, trust that God has already begun a new work in you.
