    What Are You Searching For?

    Time to Change Direction? June 15, 2017 Enhancing Human Performance

    Warrior Wisdom
    After listening to all the speakers at the Warrior Coaching Leadership Summit 2017 I walked away with a deep understanding in my heart that true joy can only be found in a spiritual journey.

    There was a collective agreement from the 15 presenters that joy does not come from more stuff and happy experiences but instead it comes from journeying together in the good times and the tough times. Sharing of ourselves in relationship with each other is the journey that God has put us on.

    And yet the world with its many voices of competition, power, consumerism and consumption, wants to rob us of this truth.

    I once heard of a famous musician in his younger years used to seek out people with power and wealth to spend time and develop relationship with them. After journeying on this path for a few decades (and himself becoming famous and wealthy) he now says that he wouldn't cross the street to meet most of  them because so many of them are consumed with their ego and accumulation of power and wealth and they have no joy.  Instead he would rather engage with people that are weak and broken and work on developing meaningful friendships. 
     

    The truth is that only a relationship with God and deep friendship with others will bring joy to our lives.

    Out of these relationships we learn to care for those less fortunate than us. Through serving others, we learn to hear God's voice, we are more certain of our calling, and we begin to understand that the journey towards joy requires us to walk through good times and tough times.


    God will use every single struggle to multiply our effectiveness in our calling.

    He uses every victory and every defeat to prepare us for eternity and live for heaven on earth here and now. 

    There is a better way. There is freedom in stepping out of the rat race, in spending more time with friends, in serving others well and in being thankful for all the little things in life.

    Yurij - I love this. As a guy that chased financial success, I know the truth you speak. Jim Carey said "I wish everyone had the opportunity to become rich and famous so they too would realize that it is the answer to absolutely nothing".

    Thank Yurij! My family is having that conversation right now! More stuff or more relationships? My wife was saying, "I think we're being called to not save up for the house, but to pour it into our church community." And I said, "I think so too. When we're old and wrinkly, I think there'll be more joy if our community is flourishing, than if we have things X, Y and Z."

    Now I hear your saying the same thing! Thank you and bless you.

    How many times have I heard that life is a journey to be enjoyed, building relationships with others, yet I get distracted by the stuff?

    Great post!

    Great post Yurij. I feel much more joyful now despite the challenges life throws my way now. Three years ago, every little thing that happened seemed to steal my energy and joy. I was focused on the wrong things though. Shifting my focus to healthy relationships with people I care, serving out of abundance, and most importantly my time with God has changed everything. Thank you.

    Amen to that! I have seen and experienced a LOT of brokeness lately and I wouldnt exchange the people that I'm journeying with. And the relationship and closeness and trust that I have for my Heavenly Father for anything... But that has come with some very tough challenges and stories within the journey. Thanks again Yurij!

    Yes Yurij! You nailed it! I read last night that love can penetrate deeper in our broken parts, especially our hearts. Thank-you for being truthful and leading with your heart. Love you! Brad
