It has been a while since my last blog and that is going to change. Being the New Year of 2012, and the first Saturday of the year, I have a renewed excitement to motivate people to live their best lives. I have designated Saturdays to be my blog writing day!! :)
So much happened in 2011, good and not so good, and the one lesson I took from all of the happenings, is to just go for my dreams in 2012, and I would like to encourage every reader of this page to go for your dreams as well. Don't hold back anymore.
Just do it!
There are people at the other end of your success waiting for you to touch their lives with your story, your perseverance, your life...Don't allow a day to go by that you are not working toward the success of your passion. Take baby steps everyday, and before you know it, success is knocking at your door.
What is it that you have put off for too long? Perhaps it's that book you need to write, that piece of art you need to create on canvas, that speech you need to make that is going to be life changing in someone's life, that business you have wanted to launch...The list goes on and on.
Let 2012 be the year you make a committed decision to be true to yourself. To be true to the gifts and talents that God has placed within you to bless His people, and in turn bless your life.
Get real with yourself and do an honest self assessment as to what is stopping you from pursuing your dreams, and then face those issues head on and put them behind you.
Fear and doubt are big factors that paralyzes people from living life to the fullest. God says that He has made you to be more than a conqueror...(Rom. 8:37) and that you can do all things through Christ who is your strength (Phil. 4:13). God has placed within you all that you need to accomplish those dreams, and has provided all that you need to get the job done.
Give yourself a chance and just try. Ask yourself -- If I could not fail, what would I do?
I have to tell you that I myself have had to face my fears and doubts, and God has breathed His breath of life into my very being that is so powerful. I have made the quality decision, with the help of a fabulous team, to move out in Faith and be a blessing to others, and to be true to myself.
Since November of 2011, I have seen God's hand on my life/my dreams and visions...bringing success and blessing, but they would not have happened if I hadn't stepped out in faith, taking those baby steps. God will meet you at the next step of your journey if you will allow Him too.
I heard a powerful teaching from a fabulous Woman of Faith, Kathryn Kuhlman, many years ago. She shared the simple example of a chess game. When we make our move, God will make His move. As long as we are seeking Him first and obeying the instruction for the next move, stepping out in faith, He will continually meet us and help us at the next move or level.
No more holding back, but moving forth in victory living life to the fullest. Don't live with regrets of allowing your life to remain dormant/stagnant. "Allow your life to be like a river of living waters!"
God bless you all and I pray this message has been encouraging and uplifting to you in this season of your life, and I look forward to hearing about your successes.
With much friendly Love!!!
P.S. What is Fear?
