Chances are you have a few things you’d like to accomplish that seem to be going nowhere. Chances are also good that at one point or another you’ve heard the voices–either in your own head or from others. Those voices stirring up doubts and fear of failure.
It starts out innocently enough–internal thoughts masked as cautiousness or friends just looking out for our best interest; but before too long we’re looking straight at full-fledge dream-sappers.
This isn’t the place we need to be.
How should we respond to this fear? We definitely shouldn’t let it paralyze us and keep us from the awesome things God undoubtedly has in store for us.
For one, fears and doubts are often just lies and roadblocks meant to keep us in mediocrity land so we never reach our amazing potential.
Two, we never know what we’re capable of doing or what will happen unless we go for it.
Three, if we don’t teach our kids to overcome fears and doubts, who will?
Four, if we fail, so what? Failures are the backbone of countless success stories all over the world.
I say, better a life of trying and failing than one of not trying and regretting.
So, here’s to our big dreams and little dreams. Stretch goals, bucket lists or whatever…Let’s all agree to start saying yes more often to the scary goals and those God-sized leaps of faith.
