The pace of life

Sometimes, because life can move fast, people only realize that they have become something that they do not like once they see it in themselves.

Life can move quickly and someone can be busy from one thing to the next, without taking the time to stop and evaluate, and before they know it they are exhibiting habits or leading a lifestyle they do not like.

If we’re not intentional in doing the work, we become something we never wanted to be … God is more concerned about who you are becoming than what you are achieving. (Whitney Owens)

Live intentionally. Your life can be fast-paced and busy at times, but prioritize having some stillness here and there. Contemplate and assess whether you are heading in the direction that you want to be moving in, instead of moving in any direction.

Becoming something

As a practice owner, who you are now is entirely different from who you were at the beginning of your business. A business changes a person.

It was really through the practice that I matured so much in my faith because I had to have faith. I had to trust God, I had to lean in when I felt emotional when I felt overwhelmed, I had to trust that the Lord was going to care for me. (Whitney Owens)

Look at your practice; God cares more about who you are becoming than what you are achieving. Is it important to you that your practice does good work instead of a lot of aimless work?

Finding balance

Life is at its most sustainable and impactful when it is centered around balance. You do not need to choose between working hard and being a better person, you can do both. Give these goals adequate time and energy.

You can sit down and work hard to get a new business venture off the ground. Try also to take a moment to make sure that it aligns with the vision and mission of the practice.

Reflect on your day, both at home and at work, and notice when God is active in your life.
