As I write this, my knees are knocking and I am sweating like a pig on his way to the "baconator"...
Today is the day I decided to do IT afraid...what, you might ask is "it"? Well....EVERYTHING! God gave me ideas and gifts that would cause me to grow and to be wealthy. Wealthy financially as well as peaceful, having great relationships and an overall cool life.
In addition, He has gifted me with awesome Instigators to teach me how to make a living doing what I LOVE which is coaching, speaking and writing. All I have to do is listen, learn and implement...I'm good at listening, but then I veer off into the deets of "how", "when", "what-if"...and then "just forget it"....
I'm great at learning, this is not me being cocky, I really am a quick study...BUT, where I have struggled is implementation from fear of expectation of things not working out and all being this tremendous waste of time.
I don't know if you can relate but when a dream is so sacred to you, the thought of it failing or not going as planned can be well...paralyzing.
So anywho...my one of my Instigators invited me to this 30-day email challenge where I must commit to reach out to my email list of clients and people I have met at numerous speaking engagements and vending events as well as people who know me and love me. She asked me today, "Patrice, have you started the challenge?" Oy vey! I told her that I would be starting this coming Monday and that I was well..."afraid"...
All of this es muy importante because, I am self-employed and if I don't work or write, I won't eat, let alone pay these bills! 2 Thessalonians 3:10 tells me, "For even when we were with you, this we commanded you, If any will not work, neither let him eat."
Well, this sister LOVES to eat...
I wholeheartedly expected violins to start playing and for her to be oh so sympathetic....NOT SO! Her response was like ice cold water when you turn on the shower and forget to turn it to "HOT"!
Her exact response, was, "You'll STOP being scared when you make money!" This was SO eyeopening to me. SHE IS AND WAS SO RIGHT!
You see, I know how SCARY it feels to be broke, to not be making ANY money, to hope your business takes and to do ALL of the "doing" of the business....BUT NOW it's time to implement and REGARDLESS of the outcome, I AM GOING FORTH! I MUST!
I will let you know how it goes...if this is you and you haven't decided to step out yet, REMEMBER, this is WHY YOU 'R' BROKE! What are you gonna do?!
If I can be of assistance or service to you or you want someone to hold your hand on the way to the "baconator", reach out to me...I'm here to help!
