Who doesn’t love a little motivation to start the week off on the right foot? I certainly have needed some encouragement to get this week started. I have been clouded by some fear and some anxiety today, and this quote just kept coming to mind. Maybe you find yourself in a position where you can either take a leap into some uncharted waters or you can choose to stay comfortable. I hope that your heart will be inspired and encouraged today by this thought too..
“Feel the fear, and do it anyway.”
Do you ever have those moments in life where you are about to take a leap of faith and you just freeze?
In those moments, we have a choice to make.
We can either shrink back from the fear, stay in out comfort zones, and look back one day with regret.
We can lean into the fear. Take the leap. And be amazed by what happens to us in the process.
Often times, it is the path we fear the most that will lead us to exactly where we need to be.
I challenge you this week, to take the leap and allow yourself to be amazed at who you become in the process.
“Stop being afraid of what could go wrong, and get excited about what could go right.”
Life rewards action. It also rewards those that are courageous enough to take a step without knowing exactly how things will work out.
I can tell you without a doubt, I’ve felt the most fulfilled and content in my life as a woman, mom, wife, and entrepreneur when I have stayed in my own lane, worked on my own stuff, and have simply focused on taking the next step.
Yesterday during my workout I started spinning out with negative thoughts. I started thinking about how inadequate I felt. How unprepared I thought I was to take the next step in my business. I quickly sank back into the spiritual slavery that I’ve been freed from.The crazy thing is that returning to that slavery is my choice. I have been freed once for all time, and so have you if you have believed in Jesus as your savior. It is time we start remembering that truth. Scripture paints the picture time after time. Let’s not be so easy to be overcome and defeated.
As I started to feel defeated and overwhelmed, I was reminded that “He works all things for my good.” That little blurb of scripture was the only hope and reminder I needed in that moment to get out of that negative downward spiral and empower me to take the necessary action needed.
Overwhelm is a choice. And as a believer I always have the choice to overcome the overwhelm or let it consume me. The key is do whether or not I act despite of the overwhelm.
Will you be defeated by the negative chatterbox today or will you choose instead to start thinking about all that could go right in your life?
Be encouraged today. If you find yourself in that negative spin cycle of thinking. Stop yourself. Write out the lies (negative thoughts) and replace them with what you know to be true instead. Today is your day to be victorious!
I would love to hear your thoughts and what is working for you. Leave a comment with anything that spoke to you and let’s stay connected!
