Did you know that the number 7 symbolizes completion and fulfillment in several faith systems?
Although July is reserved for Independence Day, backyard barbecues, family vacations, warm weather, and weddings– have you ever considered July as the seventh month of the year? A month symbolic for completion and fulfillment.
This July, I’m seeking to be intentional about pursuing completion and striving towards fulfillment. Here’s how I envision a process of completion…
Each process has phases and/or stages. There are three types of circumstances that may arise.
The first circumstance: these ‘phases’ are evident when beginning the process.
The second circumstance: you have to create ‘phases’ to assist in accounting for the tasks necessary to accomplish your goal.
The third circumstance: which tends to be the most difficult, you have to trust the process and learn the phases as you go. This last circumstance requires ‘the most’ faith.
According to an article published by Mind Tools– a cohort that provides resources to serve others in developing their professional and personal skills– by thinking in terms of phases, you can ensure that the deliverables produced at the end of each phase meet their purpose.
I believe every human-being was created with an intentional purpose in mind. The pursuit of completion and fulfillment is best accomplished through the lens of purpose. When acknowledging that our contributions play a significant role in the grand scheme of existence, we begin to be intentional about our efforts.
Words of Wisdom by Char of The Week: Showing-up is the first phase to accomplishing completion. Show-up for the day ahead. Show-up for yourself. Show-up because your contribution matters! Ephesians 2:10.
