Why I Never Get Things Done
I ran into a business woman and as we began to catch up on life, she made this observation: I have a lot of great ideas but I can never get them done. As I pondered her statement, I realized that we all can relate to this! We all have lots of great ideas, dreams, visions and goals. By the end of the year however, theyre main figments of our imaginations. Why is that, she wanted to know?
I believe the root cause of immobility is fear. Most of us have identified fear when it comes to being afraid or terrified of something. I believe fear manifests itself in a more subtle form and keeps us from doing what we already know to do. I asked her what she wanted to do. She recited her list of the three things in life that she has meditated on for years. She knew what to do but was not taking the action steps to bring them to life. She was smart, intelligent, and savvy.
I launched Miracle Mondays, my complimentary coaching conference call for women who desire to go to the next level in their homes, businesses, careers and ministries.
Guess what? This dream was on the table for over a year before it became a reality.What took so long? I believe at the subconscious level, I was afraid to move forward. The response has been absolutely amazing.
Fear has an ability to deceive us and make us think we do not have the time or knowledge to do something. It’s just that…deception. Fear does not come from God. Fear is a spirit. It comes in and immobilizes our ability to make simple steps and ends up “talking us out of” our dreams. We learn to hide our gifts and talents after we experience a failure or setback. It whispers in our ears over and over again. Today we take control over it!
I told her to get a journal and write down her dreams. Just taking that small step will free her to get moving. Once it is on paper, something supernatural happens. It becomes possible. Write out your favorite scriptures, confessions and affirmations each day. Little by little, the spirit of fear will begin to shrink and die. We become empowered to take bigger steps and before you know it, we are up and moving in the direction of our dominant thoughts of God-success and accomplishment. Do it afraid until fear has to go and bother somebody else. Keep writing out your dreams and make them bigger and bolder every day. Before long,the year will be over and you will have accomplished so much more than you can imagine. Go Bold in 2017!
