HOW TO SUCCEED ON THE JOB                                 Ephesians 6:3-9

rendering service with a good will as to the Lord and not to men, (v7)

how do you succeed on the job? (1) By keeping your eyes on your objective. Are you selling windows? Then you don’t walk into someone’s house and offer unsolicited advice about their living room décor. Focus on what you’re called to do. People can be easily offended, and by speaking about areas outside your expertise – what your customer has solicited your help in – you can jeopardize good opportunities… And learn to appreciate people, even those you don’t like. Customers are not friends; friends are friends. Place value on others. Respect them, even if your personal opinions differ from theirs!

(2) By treating everyone fairly and equally. If you show favouritism by only being kind and respectful to those you like, you’re in for trouble – if not now, then down the road. You need to learn how to work with people who aren’t your favourites. Why? Because they will remember your attitude, whether good or bad and not be particularly inclined to help you in the future (3) By trying not to take things personally. You must learn to let go of grudges and to set aside past histories with some of your co-workers. When you find your emotions flaring up and you’re tempted to react, stop and remember what’s really going on: you’re in the midst of battle and the first shots have been fired. This is the time to say a silent prayer, remember your true calling, and respond with love, patience and a professionalism that will cause those around you to want what you’ve got! (TWFYT)
