A Young Person’s 3 Step Guide to Success in Work

A young person’s (or old person’s) guaranteed guide to success in work.

1. Exodus 20:12 Honour thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee.

What good things did your parents do?

– Honor the genetics, gifts, talents, and callings that they passed down to you.

– Honor their legacy and their memory.

– Even if they did evil, find something good about them and honor that.

What did your parents tell you to do?

– Do what they asked you to do. It’s your guaranteed first step to success in work.

– Chores? Good grades? Activities? Reading? Do whatever your parents wanted as long as it doesn’t violate Gods Commandments.

– Doing what your parents want is not the end of your life, its just the beginning. Obedience alone will open up many doors.

2. 1 Thessalonians 4:11

And that ye study to be quiet, and to do your own business, and to work with your own hands, as we commanded you…

What work do you like to do with your own hands?

What do you create?

What do you maintain?

What do you fix?

What do you design?

What do you build?

– Book knowledge can only take you so far. Figure out what you like to create. Get creating as early as you can. Then you can teach and give to others.

3. Proverbs 18:20

A man’s belly shall be satisfied with the fruit of his mouth; and with the increase of his lips shall he be filled.

What type of work is it EASY for you to do with your words?

Are you able to enlighten minds?

Are you able encourage feelings?

Are you able to direct actions?

Are you able to inspire conviction?

– After you honor father and mother, and learn how to create with your hands, finding out your most effective use of words is the final step towards mastering success in your work life.

– Figure out if you are best at dispensing information, emotion, action, or conviction.

– Use your best form of communication as the foundation for enhancing the work you do.
