Life is an ever-changing experience filled with both great opportunities and difficult challenges. For the person who has embraced the idea that life the way they have lived it can no longer be, the challenge before you is to shift the culture. This idea of culture shifting is what many corporations undergo after assessing their current practices and paradigms, against expected outcomes. They expected more but for some reason, the current culture has produced far less than what was expected. The lack of productivity that consistently occurs demands examining current paradigms and practices to determine their usefulness and effectiveness. The culture in work environments is oftentimes influenced by the thoughts, perceptions and opinion of others and these play a vital role in determining the cultural attitude.
Translate that to our personal lives and we will see the same. We have personal opinions, perceptions and even attitudes that stifle our effectiveness. There are many practices and paradigms we incorporate into our lives on a daily basis that have not yet yielded the expected outcome. It’s been said that “insanity is doing the same thing over again expecting a different result.” There are countless people who need to put up a sign that reads: UNDER CONSTRUCTION as it pertains to their lives. Initiating a culture shift in your life begins when you make the choice for kingdom values for it’s at the point where you come under the rule and reign of God for your life. Scripture says; “I have set before you life and prosperity, death and destruction. For I command you today to love the LORD your God, to walk in His ways, and to keep his commands, decrees, and laws; then you will live and increase, and the LORD your God will bless you in the land you are entering to possess.” (Deuteronomy 30:15-16)
How do you envision your future? If you can’t see one, know that God has glorious future waiting for you to seize. It’s there for you but you will have to lead your own personal culture shift!
