Only by grow and learning about yourself can you understand who you are and who you are not. Go to www.youruniquedesign.com and take the assessment to help understand how God wired you and what your God given gifts are. I personally took this assessment as part of the Men's Fraternity Great Adventure study. From the study I was able to develop my very own customized personal mission statement that I have posted on my website. Now that I have that, any decision for a new job and volunteer or leadership opportunities are run through that filter of who I am and who I am not. A recent job posting within my company that I was qualified to apply for would have been a promotion, but it would require more overnight travel and less span of control or influence. So I passed on the opportunity, because it didn't give me the opportunity to have a bigger impact and it would require more travel. Understanding who you are and who you are not helps you have a bigger impact for God and model the way for others.
