Wanna know the TRUTH?

The biggest hindrance, obstacle, and blockage to your dreams is…YOU!

At the root of the laundry list of excuses you have come up with over the years for why you "can't" do that thing your soul is begging you to do, you will find YOU.

It's not the money, it's not a lack of time. It's the fear of becoming the best version of YOURSELF. See, being ordinary, fitting in, or just getting by is easy. Hence why everybody is doing it. It's easy to sit and create a list of why you can't, but it's hard to create the steps and strategy for success. This is the reason most people never walk in their purpose and build prosperity because it's HARD.

But let me ask you this? Don’t you think you are worth the HARD? I mean, aren't you worth that same investment of time, money, and energy that you've been giving away to people who don't even appreciate it? You give your time to people who waste it gossiping. You give your money to people who are terrible stewards of their own, and I know you've given energy to joy suckers. So at what moment will you finally say enough is enough and make the investment in your greatest asset…YOURSELF.

To do that, you are going to have to eliminate the excuses. This will require you to be honest, get creative, and be willing to take a few losses. You have to get honest about the fear of success, because YES, you will have to change to grow mentally, physically, and spiritually to create the space to receive what've you keep praying for.

You need to get creative about ways you can find the time to elevate your knowledge, increase your income so you can make the proper investments, and get in alignment with the right people that will enhance your current skillset. Creativity will be so much easier when you remove the clutter and allow it to flow freely.

Finally, you have to learn to accept failure as part of the process and thank God in advance for the lessons. Losses suck because they can be quite painful and traumatic (trust me I know), but they also store your greatest development opportunities. Don't punish yourself by dwelling on mistakes. Allow yourself to receive and move with grace and mercy and then teach someone else how to do it better.

It's time to stop waiting, stop hesitating, and stop allowing fear to lead you nowhere. It's time to activate that faith you love speaking about but never actually put into ACTION!

It's time to see yourself as wonderful, bold, and confident because that's your original design. It's time to accept that it's going to be hard and know you have the courage to withstand and defeat any and everything that threatens your destiny.

This is your season. Your season to sow and harvest all that God has for you. All you gotta do is fully accept your GIFTS, understand your experiences, and maximize your skillset.
