Achieving our full potential

In today's society, great stress is placed on getting to the top in business—through company politics, personal power, psychological manipulation, drive, and the sacrifice of other interests. Sometimes, indeed too often, the cost of such a climb is great: strain, broken health, and even the abandonment of the moral character and ethical standards that make life worth living.

What is the Christianly scientific approach to achieving our full potential? What should be our motives and actions? Let's be very clear with ourselves right from the outset: If our motives are pure and our actions are in response to God's directing, climbing to reach the top in our career can be wholesome, healthy, rewarding—an adventure. Surveys show that many ambitious people want to achieve very legitimate ends—not just money and material benefits but a job that will permit them to grow and learn and express the fullness of their talents.
