Love, Quality and Integrity at Work

by Anonymous

A couple of weeks ago I received an email asking me if I was interested in applying for a job in my field of work. The next week involved a series of phone calls with the company, so they could get a feeling as to whether I was suitable for the job. For the first time ever I was not attached to getting this job, and I began to ask questions and initiate certain discussions to see if the company was suitable for me to work with.

The unraveling of this process has been very freeing; for me to feel what is most important in any job that I do. In a nutshell, I can say that this is to make my work about meeting people – that is, being with them in a loving way that is never about me, my needs, the bosses’ needs or the companies’ needs, but all about love and care for people first. Then committing to this consistently, to the best of my ability.

Also, I gained a freeing feeling that these aspects about work don’t actually need to be present or active in the workplace or company that I join, but that there only needs to be an opening for me to bring these and live this in the work place.

Within a week a contract was being drawn up to offer me employment. For the first time ever I notified them of my ‘contract’.

This was my contract to them:

1. For me, work is about ‘people’ first, servicing in a way that is not only about maintaining quality and integrity in all that I do, but also about being very loving, caring, considerate and supportive of every person I work with.

2. I recognise that ‘outcomes’ are necessary, however, if ‘outcomes’ begin to outweigh point 1 (i.e. quality and integrity and loving care and consideration is lost), then to me this is not a true outcome, but only a quick solution that will most likely ‘fail’ or fall again in a short period of time. So a balanced focus must be on outcomes as well as maintaining quality, integrity and loving care.

3. Fun and playfulness can be present in any aspect of the work. I will be aware however that this industry can be a very stressful and high-pressured industry to work in, but I won’t ever accept or tolerate abuse from anyone. I will understand that some people may be close to ‘popping’ due to their own frustrations or outside pressures they are feeling.

4. I will be myself.

This is a contract that I will now hold with myself in any work that I do, a contract to be me in fullness in all that I do. The self-growth and awareness I have developed to discover this level of freedom at work has been inspired by Serge Benhayon and Universal Medicine, who live and work in a way that is only ever about love and being who we truly are!

  1. Anonymous, this is great to read; ‘I was not attached to getting this job, and I began to ask questions and initiate certain discussions to see if the company was suitable for me to work with.’ I have been feeling this recently too with work, I used to say yes to whatever was offered and asked of me and be grateful for any work, I had low self esteem then, now I can feel that this is changing as I begin to value myself and to make sure that this job is suitable for me too.

  2. This blog sets the standards on how we ought to approach our work and what better place to set our mark than at an interview, that is start as we plan to go on.

  3. I love how your lack of attachment to the job enabled you to equally interview them to ensure they where the right fit for you – imagine if everyone could do this, the integrity of their work being the most important thing and therefore not trying to get a job at any cost but ensuring that they get the right job for them and the company gets the right employee.

  4. The truth about many workplaces is they are fraught with intolerance, frustration, pressure and often abuse. The only way this will change is if each one of us decides to say no to it, not by leaving the workplace, but by being true to who we are and being someone who says yes to respect, decency and kindness, all while the job gets done.
