What if we could live in a world where we don’t have to worry about working for someone else? And what if we didn’t have to worry about finding a job or waking up early for work? What if we could work from home, set our own hours, and do something that is not only fulfilling but also profitable? In this article, I will teach you how to divorce your job by making the decision to become a Kingdom Entrepreneur. Here are 5 ways that can help you find freedom in a world of chains.
Define your Kingdom calling
First, let me introduce you to the kingdom business. These are businesses and ventures that are growing and offering solutions to people’s needs. While these businesses may not necessarily produce tangible products, they are the solution. They are helping people in ways that are not visible on the surface, but they are real and relevant. For example, grocery stores like Trader Joe’s or Whole Foods have mastered the art of selling products to the “on-the-go” people. You do not see Trader Joe’s near your neighborhood, but you do know how to find it. What they are doing is creating a trust and relationship with the “all or nothing” individuals.
Tame the fear of failure
It’s almost impossible to succeed in life without failing at some point. If we aren’t failing, we aren’t trying and we are not living life. What is the definition of insanity? Doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results. How many times have you set a goal for yourself and gotten absolutely nowhere. Life is about failure. It’s about getting up, dusting yourself off, and trying again and again. Imagine you try a new recipe for dinner. You decide to go for it and make a special dish for your wife. You read up on a few different recipes, pick one, and try it. Your wife is pleasantly surprised and tells you how great it is. You make it again and again, and it keeps getting better. Then you decide you want to make a nice casserole for a family function.
Get clear on your goals
The first step in getting clear is to get clear on what you want in your life and the life of those around you. If you don’t know what you want, it’s very hard to create that life you want. Asking God for clarity about what He has in store for you is not a weakness; it’s a strength! You know your weakness: seeking the approval of man. Set a time and date to stop working for someone else. Ask yourself, are you doing it for the money? Are you giving the best you have to give? Are you working toward a life of peace and love, or a life of a paycheck and strife? Whatever you choose to do, be clear on the end result. Write down how you want to spend your life with God at the center. Learn more here.
Start with the end in mind
Have you ever wanted to do something that was never fully possible for you to do? Or you have always wanted to do something that was too good to be true? It’s those kind of opportunities where you do something you have never done before or started something you never dreamed you could. When you are a Kingdom Entrepreneur, you can choose what kind of freedom you want and where you want to be. When you are Kingdom Entrepreneur, the possibilities are endless. A better life, a happier life, a fun life; a fun and fulfilling life are all parts of a greater freedom. We have the opportunity to choose our own freedom, a freedom that we can call our own. Remember that you can be who you want to be and do what you want to do.
Divorce your job
Create the freedom to create something new In a world of chaos, “God is continually calling each of us to create something new in the midst of the chaos.” (Dan Allender, CEO of Ethos Foundation, TED Talk, October 2015) When you have a creative mind, you create new things on a daily basis, even if you are not aware of it. Whether you are designing a new layout for a business card or coming up with an idea for a new app, you create something new daily because of your creative mind. Your creative mind can help you divorce your job by creating something different from what’s already existing. You also can set up something new to offer your customers. You don’t have to come up with something revolutionary.
