Graphic Designer and ALFG subscriber Derek Austin recently heard from God. He discovered his true creative calling, and how it ties in to his career and his job.
Here’s what I mean:
Derek knew that He had a God-given talent, and although he works at a job that is relative to his skills, he still felt that something was missing; that he still was not operating fully in the capacity that God had him destined for (sound familiar?).
Derek Discovers His Creative Calling
The first thing Derek needed to do was to clarify exactly how God had him wired. What did God place within him
that He (God) was going to draw out of him to accomplish His plan? Derek asked what we all have asked: “Why am I here? What am I supposed to do? Where am I going?”
Derek and I worked together discussing his values, his dreams and his passion. This type of conversation challenged Derek to look within rather than to look outward first.
Through looking at Derek’s skills, abilities, his personality and basically the things that drive and motivate him, Derek realized what he was called to do:
Derek’s Creative Calling: Help Others to Grow as He Grows
The common thread in Derek’s life that really motivates and excites him is related to teaching and training people. Derek said this is an area that he LOVES to do on his job. Helping coworkers learn different skills within the job while adding to their value is something that Derek has always had a passion for. He’s not even paid to do this. It’s just part of his DNA. It’s how he’s wired!
This revelation is what positioned Derek to clearly see what his next steps should be concerning his creative talent and upcoming opportunities. Derek is creating an Action Plan leading to developing workshops in Photo Shop that he will facilitate in his local community and even online!
