What is that one thing you’ve always wanted or wanted to do? Something you’ve wanted to buy? That dream job? That dream house? That dream car? That ideal woman/man? Well what better time than the present? What’s stopping you from going for it? Fear of failure? Fear of being told no? No’s are like eating dirt or falling and scraping your knee as a kid, it helps build character and thicker skin. Failure is an illusion and always an opportunity to start over.
What would you do if you knew you couldn’t fail? How many things have you said no to, or put on hold out of fear? Today allow your faith to be bigger than your fear.
I’ll start it off, I’ve always known that I was meant to write, inspire, and teach among other things. For years I wanted to start a blog ✅. I wanted to loc my hair, appointment booked (5/4) ✅. I wanted to write a book (In progress). I wanted to move to Los Angeles (Working on it). Fear for me has been crippling, but no longer will I allow it to control me.

As humans, fear is a natural response for most when entering the unknown; unfamiliar territory, or starting something new. For me it mimics the feeling of transferring to a new school, in a new state, during your junior year.
Exercising faith can be difficult. Growing up I always heard the scripture Hebrews 11:1, “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things not seen.” I never fully understood what it meant until I got older. My interpretation- – Faith is the confidence or knowing needed to acquire what you desire.
Are you ready to shoot your shot in 2018?
Lately I’ve been seeing several of my friends take that leap of faith, starting businesses, leaving jobs, and living their best lives. I’m definitely inspired!
Until next time…❤️
