Keep Your Job, and Earn a Promotion! (2)

Keep Your Job, and Earn a Promotion! (2)

“Get wisdom…get understanding.” Pr 4:7

In his book,Emotional Intelligence,psychologist Dr. Daniel Goleman says that IQ amounts to only 20 percent of success. To keep your job and earn a promotion you need more than intelligence. Goleman suggests several things to help you succeed on the job:
(1) Confidence. Confident workers trust their God-given abilities. And where do you get this confidence? From God! “It is better to trust in the Lord than to put confidence in man” (Ps 118:8). Confidence in God gives you the assurance that you “can do all things through Christ who strengthens [you]” (Php 4:13). (2) Curiosity. “Get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding.” Curiosity is eagerness to know, learn and understand more. Curious workers are interested in what’s not obvious. Others presume that a solution doesn’t exist or is too difficult, so they quit at the point at which they should be starting. But when others are saying, “It’s way beyond me,” the curious employee says, “There’s an answer. There’s a better way. We just need more understanding.” Every boss wants curious workers. (3) Decisiveness. “God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind” (2Ti 1:7 NKJV). Fear is a “spirit.” It’s an attitude that makes you pull back, or freeze in place, or give up. That spirit doesn’t come from God, so resist it. Don’t be afraid to take a prayed-over risk, or accept responsibility for an outcome.
