Whew, I felt this #MondayMotivation quote from Charles Sullivan deep in my spirit today. Hoping it inspires y’all to push forward with your goals in spite of risk and fear.
For me, I have been holding back on some things I’ve wanted to do for a long time. I had a quick conversation about new products I’m releasing soon with my best friend, who was excited to buy. I told her I was putting it off and she was literally like, “Why so long?” I had to admit I was kind of stalling and figuring out some more things on my end. But…I’ve mostly been stalling. It’s a bit of a risk, as all new ventures are, but I don’t ever want to miss out on opportunities just because I’m afraid to say yes.
Now, I’ve learned that not all opportunities are the ones for me and that some ventures will fail, no matter how much you work at them. Just the way it is. I’ve challenged myself that, if the only thing holding me back from an opportunity is my fear, I’m praying and mustering up all of the courage I have and going after it anyway. I want the same for each of you! So, as I challenge myself, I challenge you to go after your goals even if there’s risk and even if there’s fear. The greater risk is missing out on great opportunities to better yourself.
