How many of you are not living your dreams. How many of you are stuck in jobs you hate but you stay because you are afraid to take a chance at something new. How many of you have had a dream, a vision or a business idea sitting on for years, but you haven’t taken the chance to put it into motion because you are afraid you might fail. Do not let your fears hold you back. Take a chance, grasp this moment. If you are determined, and hungry enough for success you will achieve it.
One of the most important steps towards empowerment is having a reasonable belief in yourself and your abilities. Self-confidence plays a key role in your growth and development as an individual.
One of the main reasons people fail to evolve and grow is due to a lack of self confidence. It is not for a lack of strength or even for the lack of trying. As individuals we all have our weak moments, but we must never let go of self-confidence. Confidence is believing that in spite of what you might come up against you will overcome and achieve success.
Are you where you want to be in your life. Are you pursuing your dream, or is fear holding you back? Are you sitting around waiting for the right moment to come? Perhaps that right moment won’t come so it’s up to you to start where you are and allow things to fall into place. How many times have you rooted for others and supported their dreams? Now it is time to take a chance on you. That dream you have been putting on hold for so long, find the courage to go after it now. Shake off the shackles of doubt that you have allowed to hold you back. The right moment is not going to come looking for you. You have to create the right moment.
I encourage you today, not to worry if people think you are a dreamer. Many of those who have achieved success, are the people who had a dream and pursued it. You must have a passion for life, a belief in self, and the determination to to be successful in what you do. Don’t be distracted by the noise and confusion around you. Keep your eyes on the prize!
Be careful of the things you tell yourself. Sometimes people become what they tell themselves they are. Always think positive thoughts about yourself. I Am, are two powerful words, speak them into being. Tell yourself each morning before you leave home: I am worthy, I am successful, I am important, I am loved, I am a wonderful creation of God, I am a masterpiece. I am in control of my destiny. I am going to have a great day.
It is important to be consistent. Form positive habits that will impact on your life in a meaningful way. Practice thinking positive thoughts.
Here is a preview of my book “Awake Your Mind.” It is full of inspirational and positive thoughts to encouage you!
Never allow anyone to make you feel inferior. In a world where you are judged not for who you are but for how you look, maintain your authenticity. Never allow anyone to place you in a little box and tell you that is where you were meant to be. Heights are for everyone who work to get there, so rise and keep on rising.
When the battles you face seem too hard for you to fight alone, just remember God is in the background fighting for you. Life may get overwhelming and you may face attacks from all side but remember if God took you to it he will get you through it. When others abandon you, he will stand by you because he promised never to leave you or forsake you. He is watching over your life.
Don’t just settle for anything in life believing that you can’t do better. Your mind is a powerful thing and whatever you believe, that you can also achieve. So you have to believe you can achieve greatness. Believe that you were not meant to live a mediocre life. Believe that nothing is too good for you to have. Believe that with hard work you can see your dreams take life.
Thank you Lord for inspiration
You have given me today,
And the loveliness of the sunshine
You have sent along my way.
All the clouds in the heavens
Look so pretty there in place
What a sight to just behold them
As they roll along in space
And the world in all its wonder
Valleys low and mountains high
Just a little bit of heaven
As they seem to touch the sky.
Thank your Lord for all creation
You allowed for me to see,
And the inspiration “kindly”
You have given to me.
