I love easy-to-chew quotes. Sometimes they can be lengthy or overdone, but this one really hit home for me. It’s simple, to the point and true. I’ve been daydreaming about starting a business and have gone through hundreds of ideas trying to find that perfect idea. I don’t just jump in head first into anything. I’m more of the “analyze every single angle possible and predict all possible outcomes before making a decision” kind of gal.
The truth is though, sometimes you just have to take that first step. This idea TERRIFIED me. I kept thinking “What do I have to offer people that they need?” Most of my adult life, I’ve job-hopped in hopes of landing the ideal job, but I’ve come to realize that there is no perfect job because that’s not my calling. I was created to be a business owner that helps people. The details are not as important as the mission.
There will never be a good time to start a business, family, go back to school, or accomplish any other dream or goal you have for yourself. You won’t get angels to cast a spotlight down on your answer or receive some sign from God about when the “right time is” because every day is a sign from God to do something. If you woke up this morning, you’ve got purpose and a plan so you need to take advantage of the day. For years, I kept looking for some epiphany but the only revelation I received was this:
Not exactly an inspirational story to share with business leaders one day, but it’s the truth. I had to take action myself before anything would happen. God has given me my talents and my ambitions, but I have to actually use them. My hope for your today is that you take your passion and do something with it. Don’t keep it bottled up or try to perfect it before you release it to the world. Start using it now and the rest will fall into place.
Never Lose Hope,
