It’s YOU and the time is NOW!

Happy belated New Year! I hope 2018 is treating you well and that you are starting the year off strong. It’s only February but some folks have already lost their faith in this year because of opposition, a lack of support, and discouragement. What’s crazy is that the very things that should fuel us are what we allow to stop us. Oh, you didn’t realize that opposition was actually necessary in the journey to greatness? You did not know that the push back was actually a set up? These are the things that fortify us and strengthens our faith.

Sure, it’s tough to deal with opposition and discouragement but those things can only live if we breathe life into them. We relinquish our power over to them when we allow them to hijack our thoughts and change our confession. You start second guessing your ability. You start feeling like God made the wrong choice. You question if the timing is right. Then you take a break. Then you quit. Sound familiar?

If not you, then who? If not now, then when? The answers are YOU and NOW! God chose you because he knew you could do it. And it will never feel like the right time because it’s not easy fulfilling your destiny. Don’t allow fear and negative self talk rob you of your future. And please don’t allow the opinions of others to detour you. I have come to learn that haters are really just students in disguise. You’re not their enemy, you’re their teacher. Teach them that hard work pays off! Teach them what it means to be unstoppable! You can do this! Start the business, write the book, go back to school, accept the position. The time is NOW!
