I can imagine many things holding you back. Fear, lack, shortage of finances, mental blockage, anxiety; to name a few. I know how to feels to ‘think’ you don’t have enough, but I’ve come to realise that what you focus on, you magnify.
Think about it, when you are preparing for an exam, you will stay up during late hours to study and take in as much information and knowledge that you can to prepare in order to pass the test. This is the same about life; we need to be prepared for what is already ahead of us, whether we feel ready or not. If you wait for opportunities to find you, you’ll be waiting a very long time. Remember: YOU ARE THE OPPORTUNITY! So act like it and the right people will find you!
I’ve had great opportunities running quarterly workshops on how to write a book for aspiring authors, to building self-confidence and personal development, to helping and encouraging people to find their gifts and turn it into purpose. I remember in 2016 writing my first book It’s Time To Heal currently on my website; I had a vision to help young and mature women deal with internal conflict and to embrace their own journey to freedom and self-discovery.
At some point in your life, you will come to a place and analyse where currently are, whether you need to slow down or speed up. Regardless of what position you are in, life won’t give you a manual. God has given each of us the opportunity and freewill to choose how we desire to live.
Now, as for me, my purpose in life is to help and bring out the best in others through storytelling and book writing. It is such a shame that many of us, if not all have great and abundant talents, but it seems fear screams louder because of our environment, society, family pressure, peer pressure and many other external and internal voices that keep speaking negativity.
Now that we are halfway in 2020, I want to ask you, how do you want to end this year? What will you look back on and say “I am so happy I did this”. So far, I’ve been able to turn my third book From Glory to Glory into an audiobook, I’m nearly in the finishing stages of publishing my fourth book (during Covid-19!), I’ve seen growth in my business Authentic Worth, I’ve had great opportunities meeting many people during lockdown! And now I am still working smart and expecting the remaining six months to be better, but more importantly; do you know what I REALLY look forward to? Helping aspiring authors publish their book by the end of 2020. It is possible!
