Recently, I shared this on FB Live and I wanted to share it on the blog as well!
#1 – Ups and downs are totally normal! Truly, there is always going to be a 20% rule when it comes the mundane…actually let’s face it, some days are going to feel 90% mundane when we think about laundry, taxes, etc! Hence why I call it “nurturing” my business/life/calling, because that’s what it IS. It’s small things that must be done (although they should be outsourced as much as possible! Click here for my free class on that topic.) Reframe the mundane so it doesn’t bog you down too much, this is so important to a sustainable business (and intentional lifestyle too!)
#2 – FEAR!! Ugh, fear! It’s, unfortunately, normal, but we need to know we have the authority to cast it OUT! So often fear is the case though, we don’t feel good enough or we are fearful that God won’t really provide. Or we’re scared of what other people think of us, and so much more. This is so often the thing that’s holding us back though! It’s the element that makes us want to quit! I know because I’ve lived this cycle of “yay God, roar! Chase my calling!” for a week…and then 3 weeks of FEAR and quitting…and then starting the cycle all over again and never getting very far in life…sadly, this is true for quite a long time in my entrepreneurship journey.
#3 – Feel like you want to quit because you just feel like you can’t do it?! Guess what, love!!! That’s GOOD! That means you’re on track with your calling and purpose because your purpose is much bigger than you! It’s also about the thousands of people on the other side of your obedience to God AND most importantly about GOD showing up and showing off to give Him the glory and bring others to Him.
Truthfully, darling. If you’re feeling stretched by your calling, then God’s in it most likely! My fav analogy on this topic, David & Goliath! David was skilled, but was he skilled enough to kill a human giant?! No! It was God showing up and showing off! David gave God the 5 pebbles and decent skills he had and said, “here God! Use them for this crazy thing you’ve called me to do!” Guess what?! God did! God filled in Davids’ gap and gave them the victory! It’s the SAME thing for you love, believe it!!
In the video, I also chat a little bit about how our feelings, thoughts, and actions come into play here, so if you’re interested in that watch the video starting here at min 14, but I’ll have another FB live/youtube video/blog post on that later.
with love & blessings,
Ps. Would you like me to turn these videos into an actual mp3 style podcast to listen to on the go?! I know it’s sometimes hard to listen to a FB live or a youtube video that’s 20-30 minutes long…if you’re interested let me know on Facebook or email me and I’ll set it up!
