Have you ever considered that the blessings you receive are also meant you shape you and grow you in an incredible way? I say this because, sometimes we pray for a thing and it comes sooner than we expect. Maybe if we are honest, we didn’t expect it to come at all. It could be a job, or love, or any other new opportunity. When it comes, how do we respond?
A lot of us have a hard time believing we deserve the things we pray for, and as a result we can end up forfeiting our blessings because we refuse them or simply cannot even see them at all.
In this episode, I explore a way to reframe the story so that we are can get unstuck and begin to enjoy the good things that come into our lives. I hope you enjoy!
Have you moved into a new role at work, or are you desiring to move? If so, this next episode is for you.
When we are promoted, we often think it is the title which promotes us– but this is not true. What really promotes us is the challenges that come along with the title. We are promoted by others due to our potential and past experiences– it’s not until we are in a new role that we rise to the occasion.
If you’re feeling scared or inadequate, that is okay. Simply do your best, and remember all the past challenges you overcame when you didn’t give up. Listen to these work success affirmations I have created throughout your day and let them sink down into your spirit and resonate.
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:
It can be disheartening when it seems like everyone around you is passing you by. Remember everyone has a different call and destination.
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.
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!
