"... Come to me. Get away with me and you’ll recover your life. I’ll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with me and work with me—watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won’t lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with me and you’ll learn to live freely and lightly.” Matthew 11:28-30 (Message)
It’s often easy to assess our level of physical health. There’s plenty of tests we can take to provide us with information that will give us a good picture of our overall wellness. Likewise, we can analyze our bank accounts, cash flow, and debt levels to determine if we are financially fit.
However, when it comes to our professional pursuits, it’s a little harder to determine if our business aspirations are healthy. Here’s a quick “F.I.T.ness“ test that may reveal if the opportunities you are pursuing from a career or entrepreneur standpoint are worth your time and investment:
F – Future focus: Does you business align with your life purpose? Is it getting you closer to accomplishing your short and long-term goals? Does this business allow your vision to grow?
I – Intense interests: Will your business fully integrate and leverage your passions? Are you able to impact the people and communities that you care about?
T – Top talents: Is your business going to leverage what you do the best? Are these pursuits going to help you strengthen your strengths and become the best in your industry at what you do?
Sometimes it’s easy to chase opportunities that seem great, because they have worked out for other people. However, that doesn’t automatically mean those paths are the right F.I.T. for you. Just because something is right for someone else, doesn’t make it right for you. Your optimal entrepreneurial path will F.I.T. you specifically.
Everything that looks good isn’t good for you. Make sure that every business venture into which you invest your time, talents, and treasures is purpose-driven, passion-pointed, and profitable!
