1. Will this opportunity strengthen my relationships with God, my wife, and my children?
I could choose to be an operator for a local company, but will that opportunity leave me complaining and angry with God and then take it out on my family? In that case this route might not be the best decision.
2. Will this opportunity support and grow a great business lifestyle and not distract or detract from my other business/career goals?
To answer this question properly, it is important to know what your goals are. It may be helpful to create a clear list of what your goals may be and thoroughly understand what you want to do and why so that you can avoid a lifestyle that will leave you dissatisfied with your life. Then act!
3. Will this opportunity make me happier, healthier, and a stronger leader?
I think it is not only us that we want happy. It's our children, spouse and others around us we want to help. Therefore, if we are happier, healthier and a stronger leader we can help those around us to pursue the same for themselves. So this question is very important.
These are the three questions I will ask myself before making a clear decision and I encourage you to do the same as well. I got these questions for a wonderful guy, Dale Partridge. Feel free to visit him at http://startupcamp.com/#pricingsection.
If you'd like to accept Jesus into your life today, pray this simple prayer of God's love and grace today: Lord Jesus, I thank you for dying for all my sin; now Lord I invite you into my heart. Come and be my everything today and forever. Forgive my sin as I make You and you alone Lord in my life. Amen. Now read the book of God's love in the Bible: The book of John chapters 1-21. God promises He will guide your life. Pray and ask God to bring the right people into your life. God will guide you to the right church full of people who love His words in the Bible. Our God is so faithful. God bless you today.
