This clearly has been a difficult time for most during the last 5 months dealing with Covid-19, losses of family and friends, close ones losing jobs etc. It has truly been a trying time. Most of you know that I am a Registered Nurse by trade, still working as a leader in the hospital setting during this pandemic. I am grateful to GOD for having a job during these trying times. I could complain about having to go to work every day and possibly getting to be exposed to the virus or staying at home without an income, so I pick my battles.
A great thing occurred in the midst of the pandemic, I received a promotion to a Director role in Nursing. Look at God! One thing I know for sure is that being confident in what my gifts are and knowing my worth-what I bring to the table, attributed to me receiving this promotion.
Once you are clear about who you are, what you offer and what your gifts are, you can speak to the results you bring, cast the vision for others to see and build followers to help you to achieve it.
So, here are the three strategies you will need to know and do in order to advance to the next level in your career or business .
- What Do You Offer?: The first thing you have to do is be crystal clear on what you can offer . What do you bring to the table ? I know my gift is administration and leadership. I am also a Shepherd and I help to move people in one accord, I help the lost. With these gifts I pour into others to achieve one common goal. I would recommend that you search online and take a spiritual gifts test so that you can clearly know what your gifts are and how you can apply it to your profession or business. This way you are aware of you strengths and what areas you can exceed in.
- What Do You Want? : The second thing you must to be clear on is what do you want? If you want a promotion and that advancement to the next level, you have to be clear on exactly what it is that you want. This will help you to decipher from the things you do not want . Clarity is everything for the next level and for any advancement, or accomplishment. You must be certain not to muddy the waters with too much activities that will keep you busy and not productive, therefore hindering you from reaching your next level. Get Clear!!
- Will You Work For It? : Finally, you have to be willing to work for it. Work hard like it depends on you but knowing that this is something you are destined for by God. You deserve it! Plus, if this opportunity was not for you how could you ever envision it. Once you can see it, you can achieve it, so you have to believe that this is for you . If God has clearly planted the vision within you then you must know that it’s within your reach, so you have to work for it and know that this is for YOU!
Think about these three things knowing your gifts , being clear about what you want , and working hard towards it and think about how you can apply these three strategies in your career or business to advance to the next level .
