Seeing Your Work as Changing and Touching People's Lives

Ask any man on the street why he works and he will tell you working is to earn enough money so as to get a good life.  Many people see work as a necessity for living, and some will say they work for their dreams.  Others will tell you working is their passion and they enjoy every minute of their work.

To me, if you consider work as work, you are working too hard and life is not meaningful.  You are no different than the busy ant, or the dog that slaves.  To me work is about changing and touching peoples' lives.  

You don't have to be a teacher or a high level politician to change or touch peoples' lives.  Everyone, regardless of their profession, vocation, education or speciality, can change and touch peoples' lives. The moment you see your work as an opportunity for you to change or touch someone's lives, you never have to work another day in your life.  For now work has a totally higher meaning.  You will be energized to do whatever you do everyday.  Challenges will no longer be daunting but exciting opportunities for you to touch peoples' lives. Isn't this the dream that we are all dreaming about?  There are 4 Cs' Way to Change and Touch People's Lives:
  1. Connect with People.  Connecting with people at the heart level is the greatest gift you can give to anyone. When you connect with people, all problems can be solved easily and communication is a breeze.  If not, you are just going through the motion and are just talking to the wall.
  2. Conduit to a Purpose.  As a trainer, training gives me the conduit or passage to touch peoples' lives.  Everyday when I stand up and teach, I am touching peoples' lives knowingly and unknowingly.  Your conduit could be something else, like making the world safer, or just bring joy or relief to the public
  3. Community.  When you connect with people through a purposeful conduit, you are building up your community. That's what celebrities do with their songs and movies, and we too can do the same with our vocation.  As a Trainer Coach I am building a community of learners that will learn what I teach to go and touch and impact many peoples' lives in their work. Isn't this a very noble job?
  4. Closing. To touch and change peoples' lives, we need to have closing, that is, lead people to where they want to go.  In sales, our closing is for them to buy our goods and services which will benefit them and solve their problems.  In management, we 'close' our team by getting them to take action so that they can be better employees. No matter what you do, you need to close or you're just wasting time and people will be at the same position as where they started.
