Luke 1:37 (NKJV) For nothing is impossible with God.
There are always times to experience the need for Tipping point opportunities in our lives.
The other day I read a story about a man and his experience of being fired from his job.
After the initial shock had worn off, he grieved for a while, and then he sat around the house and did nothing.
Because he had considerable savings, he didn’t have to work, so he didn’t.
Staying home became easier and easier. What are you doing that makes life easier, yet it robs you of your future? That was ten years ago, and now his savings are depleted.
Being fired left him without employment, but his self-imposed sabbatical left him without self-respect.
Now he doesn’t know what to do with himself. If you lose your job – which a lot of American’s are experiencing these days, don’t drop out of life.
Fight through this time in your life. As a matter of fact, this may be an opportunity for what I call a Tipping point change.
Tipping points are those moments in life when a trend is recognized and a decision that changes everything impacts our lives in our society and culture.
And a crossroads moment like the loss of a job offers you the opportunity to make such a decision.
Where are you in your life and career?
Be sure to read the book Tipping Point by Malcolm Gladwell, he shares how little things make a big difference in our lives.
The value of personal Tipping point evaluations in your life.
There is tremendous value in recognizing our own personal tipping points.
If most of your relationships are positive and healthy, this awareness will help you make the most of your relationship choices and work through any glitches in otherwise good relationships.
In a season and out of difficult or challenging relationships? Here’s an opportunity to do some inquiry work about the drivers behind your tipping point.
If a relationship is problematic for you, really evaluate this person’s place in your life. What do you tolerate?
How does this relationship enhance or subtract from your life? What do you want to say to this person?
What motivates you to remain engaged in a relationship that doesn’t feel right?
These are baseline questions that will help you evaluate good and bad relationships in your life.
Whatever your tipping point moments were, these can be categorized as defining moments in your life because it’s when what was only imagined or perceived, finally became reality.
Point to ponder
Tipping points can be negative trends or can be energizing, we can have faith-inducing trend moments.
If you have lost your job, are you thinking of a career change, or know someone who is, think of it as a Tipping point, and see what God has in store for you.
Please don’t rob your own life of the future God has in store for you!
