Don’t Stay Stuck: Choose Fear, Or Choose YOU!

I keep waiting and waiting for something to change- waiting for divine inspiration, for God to show me my path, my future, what I’m meant to do with my life.

Ever feel like that?

 

All of a sudden it hits me…no flashing signs, no voices from heaven.

He wants me to choose.

Yup, I get to choose! I’ve been stuck because I haven’t made a decision. Or, I’ve made one (or several), but never follow through. I’m too worried about having everything right before I begin, and making sure I do everything right.

But guess what?

We don’t have to be perfect!

Know why?

Perfection doesn’t exist!

 

Everyone feels fear, but you can’t let it stop you.

And there is a cure for fear.

It’s called ACTION.

 Sometimes you have to do it afraid.

Take action while the fear is still present and it will dissipate.

Stop worrying about those around you… what they’re accomplishing, how good they are. You don’t have to be like them or do things like everyone else.

There is more than one way to eat an elephant. You just have to be you!

Give yourself permission to be un perfect, to be flawed, to make mistakes.

And then take action, move forward, and do it anyway.

Don’t worry about being good enough…you probably never will be, and you don’t have to be.

Just be you- that is enough.

 

Do what you love. Help people.

Don’t get wrapped up in the little things , the technicalities, or what you can’t do…focus on what you can do.

Narrow down your focus as much as possible. This doesn’t mean you can’t have more than one project going on at the same time, but be careful…there’s only so much time in a day.

Believe in yourself, in your talents and capabilities.

 You have something to offer the world that no one else can, and that is YOU!

Share your gifts, your talents, with the world. To keep them locked up, whether due to fear or something else, is really selfish of us.

Somewhere in the world there is someone who needs to hear what you have to say. Get your message out there so it can at least have a chance at reaching them.

You don’t have to be good enough, because you are enough. You don’t have to be perfect, you just have to be present. And you don’t have to be fearless, you just have to show up.

 

 

Now take action! Share with us in the comments one thing you’re going to do to take action today.

And as always, enjoy your journey!

Five Things A Writer Does Besides Write

I haven’t been doing much writing lately…does that make me not a writer? Because after all, a writer writes, right? Well in starting out and launching a writing career, I’m finding that there are many other things a writer does other than just write. To name a few: A Writer Learns There is so much.
