Many times over my lifetime, I’ve been faced by circumstances or experiences that I allowed to hold me back. The fear of failure and my own insecurities held me back from moving forward in certain areas of my life. What I discovered during this time was “ME” holding me back. I allowed my internal thoughts, reasoning and overanalyzing my situation hinder me from attempting to reach my goal or dream. Many reasons as to why it may not work, outside forces and procrastination in the process; crippled me from my future. Dreaming, but doubting created a pathway to mind excuses.
So what I vowed to do a few years ago was to DREAM, BELIEVE and always PRAY. This doesn’t mean you will not face tough situations or rough seasons in your life, but you will not allow them to hold you back. Life happens. There are certain situations we cannot control. However; there are many areas we can control when it comes to our life goals or dreams.
Are you looking for a career change, unsure of your plans after graduation or stuck in a situation where there is no hope?
First, you should always remain in prayer. Prayer changes things. Prayer is very powerful and can change your situation. Second, remove fear out of the forefront. Fear has many faces and the most powerful reason to keep you from moving forward. Third, write down what is holding you back. List the reasons why and actions you plan to take to move your life forward. Keep your actions consistent and don’t makes excuses.
