If You Give Up On Your Career Now, You'll Hate Yourself Later

Jun 2, 2010, Written by Sue Miley

If you are a Christian business owner than hopefully you embraced the idea that you will work for decades and you wanted it to be meaningful work.  At some point in your life God gave you a vision for your business.  You know what it is like to follow God’s plan for you and your business.  Unfortunately, I am seeing many young people graduate high school, college, and/or graduate school and begin their career defeated.  Why?

  • the economy is terrible
  • no-one is hiring
  • they are told by well meaning advisors to just be practical and get a job

I know some of these things can be and are true, however, these graduates have decades of work ahead of them.  We need to motivate them to go against the odds and seek, pray and search for God’s calling in their life.  I don’t want to set people up for failure, but in my experience attitude, hard work and perseverance have always made a huge difference.

Here is my passion-filled plea to graduates about why their career is worth their whole-hearted efforts!
