We can talk ourselves out of just about anything. We can list a million reasons why we can’t or why we haven’t. We can talk ourselves right out of a blessing.
I don’t have the money.
I don’t have the time.
No one wants to listen to me.
That’s already been done.
My kids are my main focus.
School is a heavy load right now.
I’m too old.
I’m not smart enough.
My dad was a nothing, so I’m a nothing.
Blah. Blah. Blah.
Now, think about it. What if you actually tried? What if you actually faced your fear? What if you just did IT? Whats the worse that could happen….you actually succeed?! Geeze. Success?? I’ll take it! There’s nothing to it but to it.
Let me say this, there have been times when fear literally stopped me in my track. I would get myself hype and say “today is the day”. Then when it was time to do xy and z, I failed. I would be so disappointed in myself because I would put off and put off. Then one day I finally did what I was afraid of doing. Come to find out, it wasn’t scary at all. Once I started, everything flowed. Why? Because everything that I need is in me. I have what it takes to get the job done. And you know what?? YOU DO TOO!!!!
So what limits are you putting on yourself? Please drop them here…
No longer will you hold yourself back. No longer will you doubt your abilities. No longer will you speak or think negatively. No longer will you limit yourself. You are what you think. Think greatness. Speak greatness. Go and be great!
I can do all this through him who gives me strength.
Philippians 4:13 NIV
No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. Romans 8:37
He must become greater; I must become less. John 3:30 NIV
You, dear children, are from God and have overcome them, because the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world.
1 John 4:4 NIV
