If you want to achieve greatness stop asking for permission. ~Anonymous
Ok so I've been MIA for over a week 😳 that was never my intention however as we know life can sometimes throw you that quick curve ball that will have you all mixed up trying to figure out where you left off and for me that tends to happen when I get "behind" and by behind I mean not being AHEAD of the game lol. And that leads me to this week's quote. "If you want to achieve greatness stop asking for permission." Well now this quote is a good one. Often we have so much we can do and there is so much we can BE that we spend more time planning to BE that we can't just BE..... this weekend I started a new book for the month and within the first chapter I immediately realized that I haven't been living up to my full potential and it's probably because I continue to waiver.
My thoughts are often occupied with the thoughts of "can I do this", or "is this really for me" . I'm thankful for my husband because he's great at bringing me back to reality. I doubt my abilities and I doubt if I'm even in the right place but my husband is a constant reminder because he will forever and always as the tough questions to get me back on track. He will always ask "why" I'm doubting myself and I have proven to myself and others already that not only am I capable, but I'm worthy.
The thing is MOST people struggle with themselves all the time, hesitant to be AWESOME even when that's exactly what we were made to be. God doesn't make mediocre beings, he designed us to be great but if we continue to go around like we need someone's permission to be great, that's just absurd, and actually it's a form of fear! You see FEAR is a very very real thing and when we are born, we are only born having just 2 fears built in. One is of falling down and he other fear is of loud noises. Which means every other thing we fear is LEARNED and what's even more important is that it can also be UN learned. So you can teach yourself to overcome your fears consistently because all you have to do is figure out how to unlearn whatever it is you are afraid of, this can go for just about anything really!
So stepping out of our comfort zone is tough, it's scary, it forces us to bend but it doesn't have to break us!! We are designed to be extremely resilient beings however we must KNOW this about ourselves and that is where you must build your overall confidence! Because confidence can be something that will catapult you into true success and happiness! When you accomplish things you get a rush, you feel relieved and PROUD and these are all good things. Yes we should always remain humble but that doesn't mean we can be super stupid excited about all of the DOPE things we do!! Because we truly can!!
So this week I want YOU to step it UP and step out of your comfort zone! Leave me a comment and let me know what it is you are going to do NEW this week!! Let's ALL challenge ourselves!! For me, this week I want to TRIPLE the amount of LIVE videos I do because I live to provide inspiration and motivation and I'm not going to CARE what anyone says or thinks about it because I believe this is my purpose and SOMEONE somewhere NEEDS to be encouraged!
