Most of you probably clicked on this link thinking I’m going to chat about failure…which would honestly be super accurate because it’s inevitable for every entrepreneur! Well actually, for EVERYONE.
But I’m not talking about failure today, at least not on the surface.
Today I’m talking about mindset, and how we view ourselves & God.
If religion or faith isn’t your thing, feel free to skip this! I just have to share these lessons I’ve been learning.
I’ve also learned a pretty hard lesson that good ideas aren’t always God ideas.

And that distinction matters.
Because we live life in seasons. And it’s always nice to talk about someday when we’ll “make it” or “have it all”, but we’re seriously missing this principle of seasons of life.
I am a dreamer. Through & through. But sometimes in order to also be a DO-ER, I need to go after the current God ideas only, and leave the good ideas for their time & season.
I won’t lie, this is SUPER tough for me at times. I get so cranky and whiny because I just want all of the things like yesterdayyyyy!
But…this is the best way. Bitter sweet, but still the sweetest. The fruit that has come from this lesson is amazing to me. I’ve gotten more REAL stuff done in the last 2 weeks applying this lesson than I have for the first part of 2015 entirely.
I cannot wait to see what is to come. Each season holds it’s different goals, dreams, trials and wins. And for once, I’m not fearing that. I’m embracing it! (Which is a total win for me. Big time.)
Patience is not a strength of mine, but I am learning to wait on things and be excited for them to come in other seasons of my life (hello dream home, babies, adoption, other/new business opportunities, etc.) while still being very disciplined and excited for the now as well!
I hope this spoke to you my loves. I just had to share becuase as a teacher at heart I love to share what I’ve learned and the things I’m learning & wrestling with. This is so important because you’ve gotta be YOU in business, through & through, or it will not be fulfilling enough to keep going on this crazy road!
with love & blessings,
