Don’t you realize that in a race everyone runs, but only one person gets the prize? So run to win! All athletes are disciplined in their training. They do it to win a prize that will fade away, but we do it for an eternal prize.
So I run with purpose in every step. I am not just shadowboxing. I discipline my body like an athlete, training it to do what it should. Otherwise, I fear that after preaching to others I myself might be disqualified.
1 Corinthians 9:24-27
God has called us to run the race. Are you running well? Are you ‘training’ to improve your business and life? Are you working ‘on purpose’ to show His goodness and share Jesus with others in the marketplace?
I love all the benefits of Personal Mastery Training. Here are twenty benefits that you can achieve to get more significance and satisfaction in your life and business. Then we will look at some strategies to get you started.
God created you uniquely to do the ‘good works’ He planned for you (Ephesians 2:10). When you understand your purpose, you are positioned to know what God wants you to do. Knowing your purpose allows you to align your priorities, remove any guilt, perform better, and feel fulfilled.
God wants you to align with Him for your success. You can only do this by spending time with Him. Bible study and prayer are essential. By partnering with God, you raise your standards, build personal character, express authentic gratitude, and deepen your faith-life.
God gives you the Holy Spirit to be with you and guide you. He is God’s presence inside of you. He will help you to do the right thing, take the right steps, and feel God working through you. By accessing this power, you resist temptation, overcome obstacles, develop tenacity, and gain self-control.
God has a plan for you, and He wants you to plan it carefully. You are in business to serve God by serving others. Your business exists to solve someone’s problem. Planning allows you to save time, be focused, clarify goals, and complete tasks.
God intentionally gives you the peace you desperately seek. His blessings come in many forms and are exactly what you need. When you are working in His will to prove you are one of His chosen (2 Peter 1:10) you will succeed. You start to prosper by eliminating stress, boosting your health, improving relationships, and generating more happiness.
The fruits of the Spirit are love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control (Galatians 5:22-23). Did you know it takes WORK on your part to have success in these areas?
If you want your life and work to be one that honors God and grows you, then you need to step up and be disciplined each day. Create habits that will help you display the benefits of Personal Mastery.
Begin by . . .
- Creating an ideal daily routine and stick to it. Invest time in creating these routines as well as give equal importance when it comes to following these routines. They structure your life and business, save you time, and make you more efficient.
- Beginning to practice Self-control. Self-control has the power to improve your focus and decision-making capability. It has a huge impact on success. Spend more time on those activities that contribute positively to your success not ones that take away. The Holy Spirit helps you build this muscle creating your stress-free life.
- Deprioritizing useless opportunities. When you create your goals deprioritize tasks that take you away from your goals and consume time. Pay more attention to details that make things better in terms of accuracy, time, and quality.
- Starting to take more risks. In order to achieve extraordinary things in your life and business, it’s necessary to take calculated risks. Don’t settle for living inside your comfort zone, which means missing opportunities. Challenge yourself so you can work with excellence for your clients.
Knowing that Personal Mastery can give you so many benefits seems like the best-kept secret. Most people do not invest in ‘the disciplined life’. They think it’s boring. But you know what? It has given me a strategy for showing up in my life and work that feels amazing and allows for greater success.
Here’s another secret: success is not a family heritage or something that entirely depends upon good luck. Success is something that can be learned and be achieved by adopting the right habits. Start implementing these habits into your daily routine. Take the first step towards a successful life and business, the one God wants for you.
