You have 3 types of training, self-development, organizational and institutional training. Your high school, college, etc...are examples of institutional training. If you are employed, your employer has organizational training usually when you start and during your employment with the organization. Guess which one is most important? All three have a level of importance but self-development is the most important type of training for yourself. We should self develop all the time. If you want to learn a new language, do it! If you want to learn how to paint, do it! If you want to learn about Real Estate, do it! The key is to know yourself, know who you are, and understand your gift to the world. Once you identify your gift or something you are passionate about, your self-development needs will become clear.
Society has the concept backward in my opinion or should I say on purpose!! Most people are told to go to school, get an education then get a job. This game plan will only fill you with a lot of information not in alignment with your gift and lead you to the trap of debt, stress, complacency, and contentment. Fulfillment can be different for everyone, but being fulfilled will only come from knowing and living out your gift. Your God giving gift which will only be known searching and becoming closer to God. Your Gift is also known as your work. Your work is different than your job. Your job is something you were trained to do and your work is something you were born to do! You must know the difference!! Development of yourself should never stop!! Take the time today to think about and identify your gift! Proverbs 18:16 A man's gift makes room for him.
Have a great day,
