I know at times, the pressure to want everything perfect, in tact, all planned out is the way forward right? However, times will come when it seems everything just doesn’t seem to make sense. We focus more on how we can implement or make our ways go the way we want, but what if it doesn’t work? Will you then forfeit and give up?
It is okay to not have everything together…at times you are not meant to. If you were to know every detail of your life, you probably won’t be able to handle it. The pressure of carrying every responsibility is going to be brain overload. You have to get to a place where you don’t allow the daily pressure to make you conform and give up.
There is a lot inside of you, and whether you feel like you have it together or not, you are important. I was listening to TD Jakes recent message titled: “A flickering light” and one profound statement he said was this: “every famous person is not great and everybody great is not famous”. This speaks volumes! You may be thinking the person next to you is better because they have more followers, or their events and workshops sell out in a day, or they seem more influential. However, the more you focus on these things, the less likely it will be for you to invest in yourself and be a better version of yourself. Remember that there are great people who are doing phenomenal things out there, but are not recognised or acknowledged as much as famous celebrities.
An classic example is someone recording or shooting videos behind the scenes; they are not seen or have much of a following, but come to think of it, they are the most important people in all tasks and projects. Why? Because without them, how would you know what famous people are up to?
Do not underestimate your role; you don’t know how it will benefit you in the future.
What is the purpose of being hard on yourself if you weren’t called to know everything about your life? There are still areas in my life I endeavour to understand why certain things happen the way it does, but if I keep putting pressure on it, I’ll burn myself out, which not only has an affect on how I see my life, but how I respond to others around me. Be very careful when you are in a vulnerable or confused season, so you don’t chase those that love you away.
Authentic Worth have decided to put on an event on Saturday 14th March 2020 themed: “Building Self-Confidence and Personal Development” as a way to support those who struggle with being who they are and looking deep within themselves to take life one step at a time without looking back. Authentic Worth is a platform that not only supports aspiring Authors, but looks deep into the heart and mind of those who need a helping hand in finding out who they are, and what they have been called to do through storytelling and book-writing.
We have very limited tickets left on the site, however, if you believe this is your year to change some things around in your life, I’ll love to invite you to this unmissable event this Saturday!
Remember: it is okay not to have everything together; you are responsible for how you react and respond; you are not in control of your life, even if you want to. Just take life one day at a time and know that everything is working for your good.
