“What’s stopping you?” For many of us, just starting is the hardest part. For others, completing a project seems impossible. For me personally, time seems to be one of my greatest challenges. There are so many things I want to do, but only 24 hours every day to go after it. Since we are given an unknown number of days in our lifetime, what are you doing right now to keep yourself healthy, rested, motivated, encouraged and set on fire?
★ There are seven days in a week and someday isn’t one of them. ★
★I wish there were more hours in the day and boys were nice and bread didn’t make you fat. ★
★ Success is the sum of small efforts, repeated day in and day out. ★
Overcoming Your Obstacles
- Write Your Mission, Values and Vision
- Develop Self-Discipline
- Be Patient
- Be Practical
- Be Intentional
Write Your Mission, Values and Vision - if you don't know where you're going, it'll be hard to get there.
Develop Self-Discipline - I once heard it said, "Nothing so conclusively proves a man's ability to lead others as what he does from day to day to lead himself."
Be Patient - Handle yourself with care. You can only do what you can do! Growth takes time. Don't rush the process. But are you being faithful with the gifts and talents you've been given? Are you maximizing your God-given potential?
★ Mountaintops inspire leaders but valleys mature them. ★
Be Practical - Get real with yourself...what's standing in your way? Is it time (*raises hand*), resources, or ability? Or under the surface...is it insecurity, fear or complacency?
Be Intentional - Diligence and consistency is KEY. These are truly some of the greatest things blogging has reinforced in my life!
I believe one of the most courageous things you can do is be yourself. Be brave. Be bold. Be bright. Take risks. Hold onto hope and believe in miracles.
★ You must do the things you think you cannot do. ★
★ No matter how you feel, get up, dress up, show up and never give up. ★
