I wonder why there is so much fear in dealing with the unknown. Why is it so hard to step out and do something spontaneous, new maybe even different? To create, build, or run with a vision or a dream that you have kept very close to your heart.
Why is it so easy to come up with a thousand different reasons why you should not? But knowing for those same thousands of reasons why you should. How easy is it to link failure with your self-worth, abilities, or self respect. I feel that too many people fear the sting of “being a failure” so they fail to even attempt new challenges, afraid that they will fall short in their efforts.
Is life not about taking chances? When did the standard start being about measuring up to what people think and say? Instead of meditating on what my Creator thinks and says about me. He says that I am fearfully and wonderfully made. He says that I can do all things through Christ who gives me the strength. He says that I am blameless, righteous, and a child of God, all day, everyday. And that he has a plan for my life.
A friend of mine shared this with me some time ago, it’s a quote by Zig Ziglar.
“Failure is an event, never a person; an attitude, not an outcome; a temporary inconvenience; a stepping stone. Our response to it determines just how helpful it can be”.
As always, Thanks for reading my blog, and God Bless.
