A new day requires new encouragement. I believe so many of us start out with intentions of being positive and ridding ourselves of fear and self doubt– but then circumstances come. Sometimes we are so focused on circumstances, we are unable to see a clear path from where we currently are, to where we know we want to be.
I tweeted something recently:
If we can change our perspective, we can find ourselves fueled by faith and self-love rather than fear and self-doubt.
I created my most recent podcast– Rise Up to remind all of us (myself included) that if we have breath in our bodies, we have a mission that is not complete. I hope it encourages you!
Pay close attention to the times when you are told things are impossible. Is it really impossible, or is the person who is telling you, no longer curious or out of options themselves? Sometimes people can be SO SURE of themselves, we think they must be right. If you keep going, and keep discovering– it just might be possible for you.
Life gets tough sometimes, but it’s not over. You have to give it your all at every step of your race. Here are some tips for finishing strong at whatever it is you do!
The Wonderfully Made Podcast provides encouragement and inspiration for every day living.
Earlier today I posted this quote on my fan page:
Your dreams are the flowers, and doubt is the weeds. Get it??
I can think of so many times I had a great idea, and I talked myself out of it, or delayed action on it. Oh, I had wonderful excuses. I would hide behind perfectionism and say I was planning to start when I got my ducks all in a row. Other times I was honestly just plain scared!
All around me, I would see people pursuing their ideas with courage– and they seemed unaffected by the hiccups and imperfections. They just kept going! They perfected their craft along the journey instead of waiting. This is what winners do.
Since I want to be a winner, I’m taking courage to pursue my dreams now. I won’t blame anyone else who doesn’t believe in me or my vision. I am daily holding myself accountable to have confidence and hope instead of doubt and fear. If you’re reading this, I suggest you do the same!
