Finding the Joy in Our Calling

CorVive has been in overdrive over the past couple of months as we have celebrated a milestone anniversary, held our most talked about event, and traveled around the world with our incomparable leaders. Given the celebratory spirit over the past couple of months it has really began to solidify CorVive’s place in the world, and we are truly finding the joy in our calling.
Our simple philosophy of love, serve and care is deeply resounding and is instilling a feeling of expediency in all of CorVive’s leaders. These valued partners devote much of their time ensuring that the CorVive message is alive and thriving…and if you ask them it is not work, “it’s a calling.” So many of the wonderful people involved in CorVive feel like the stars have aligned to create an opportunity like no other and we stand with those leaders ready to spread the opportunity!
I find so much inspiration everyday from those leaders that recognize the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity that they have their hands on and they do not take it for granted. I am reminded of a thought regarding ‘work’ and ‘jobs’…and it goes something like this…the only time you find true meaning in your job is if you are doing something that serves others. You may find a job that is fulfilling to a point, but the one long lasting job that you will never tire of is making a meaningful contribution to someone’s life. The underlying truth in this message is profound.
We should all be finding the joy in our calling…are you finding it in yours?

Worry – Make a choice

We worry about our families, we worry about our world, and sometimes we end up worrying just to worry. It’s a dance we all end up doing more than we need to, mostly because being worried is a vast misuse of energies and time. You can only worry about those things you directly have control over. Our problems in life are all that we can directly influence and sometimes even these closely related troubles are still things that might be beyond our direct control. This is where worrying seriously deprives us of our ability to do good in the world. 

Everyday we can examine a worry and quickly decide if it is something our actions can have a direct impact on. If it’s something we can’t impact then we need to let this worry go and focus on what it is we can influence. One of the things I believe is an immediate remedy to worry is gratitude, service and hard work. These actions can swiftly help you combat the troubling spots in your life that can cause you to worry. 

Try it out. When you begin to experience anxiety that accompanies worry, quickly run through a gratitude checklist. It is amazing to see how worry can be dispelled by gratitude. Couple this exercise with service. When you begin to serve those people in your life that are worthy of your time and energy, you will soon realize that your problems are somewhat less significant. If you begin to replace worst case scenarios in your mind with those of service and gratitude it is almost impossible not to feel your worries ease. 

Worry is something that you will deal with daily, but it is critical that you balance worries and stress with meaningful attitude and service. Keep in mind there is a choice associated with worry. It is either something you can change or something that you cannot, recognize the difference and it will save yourself a lot of worry.
