Do you have a desire to try something new or achieve a lifelong dream but can’t muster up enough CouRage to give it a try? At the beginning of the movie “The Mighty Macs” the woman asks two questions that I will never forget:
Could I deal with rejection and temporary pain
Should I suffer a life filled with regret because I was afraid to take the risk?
I can think of numerous times that I tried to talk myself out of trying something new because I feared negative feedback, failure or embarrassment. I have learned that these brief moments of feeling uncomfortable are well worth the satisfaction and confidence you experience by working toward something you LOVE.
I have been running my Letter Block Shop business for almost 4 years now. I can honestly say that majority of the days I LOVE what I do and get excited to watch how much it has grown. It is only a handful of days per year that I actually experience the “not fun/uncomfortable” stuff. Wouldn’t you say it is well worth it? The good days definitely outweigh the bad!
So, what are you waiting for? Don’t live a life filled with regret! Take the risk and start Living-It today!
I need help. We all need help.
On Thursday I talked about ways to hold yourself accountable when wanting to change an area of your life in my post Back to Reality. This applies to any area or time in our life. We all have things we want to improve, but don’t know how to get there. Where can you reach out for HELP?
One area of my life that I wanted to improve was my daily enthusiasm for deepening my faith. I had been in a rut and didn’t know where to start. MY HELP this week has been listening to Christian music. Let me tell ya, it is working!
I had originally tried diving into the bible, and to be honest, all I kept doing was staring at the words on the page. At that point in time, IT WASN’T WORKING! So if you can’t get momentum, keep trying until something clicks! Maybe your new HELP will be a friend you aren’t thinking of, a new book, getting involved in a group/organization, researching the internet….explore ALL options! Don’t give up!
And in case you are where I am, below are some of my new FAVS! Check them out, and SING and DANCE with me!! (If you can’t see the video’s below, copy and paste the titles into youtube)
