I almost gave up on my dream



For the past few weeks I have been battling negative thoughts, self-doubt and self-limiting beliefs. It even got to the point to where I was ready to walk away from my purpose and passion. One thing I realized is that even though I read a lot of encouraging material sometimes I need the spoken word in my life. I need to hear someone speak to my heart with motivation and reassurance of God’s word that we all have a purpose to be filled.

So I went back to what I knew to be true and that is that we need daily motivation. Zig Ziglar says that motivation is like taking a bath, we need it every day. To help me get refocused and get out of this funk I started listening to inspirational radio. I listen to Joyce Meyers and Joel Osteen because I believe they are both motivational ministers. I also got refocused on why I started this in the first place, to help others.

Hope deferred makes the heart sick and that is where I was starting to head. I could tell my body and mind were not in a healthy state.

I began to pray and then thank God for clarity, vision, determination, and drive to get me refocused on my purpose. It is so easy to get sidetracked in what I am supposed to be doing. Some days I want to chase every butterfly that comes by and then I get lost.

Today I want to be thankful for getting back on track, for sending people into my life that can get me refocused, and for having a God who never stops sending the right people at the right time.

There are days I want to walk away because it can be hard and lonely pursuing what God has put in our hearts to accomplish. A dear friend of mine told me very point blank that if God lays a purpose on our hearts then who are we to deprive the world of those blessings. Certainly not I. Every once in a while we need our friends to give it to us straight. Well she did and I am thankful for it.

If you are struggling with your goals and focus I would love to reach out to help you get refocused. I am here even if you just need an accountability partner. I know how easy it is to get distracted and discouraged. Keep digging and climbing. There are better days ahead.

The resistance of this world is here to stop us from reaching our goals but we are stronger than the resistance when we reach out for the right kind of help. Shoot me an email and let’s talk about what kind of struggles you are having.

Go out and show the world how AWESOME you are today and make a difference in someone’s life.
