We all want financial freedom, we all say we want to make enough money to live life on our own terms, do what makes us happy and help our families. Many say they don’t want to live paycheck to paycheck forever. We all say we want more out of life.
But do you want to know what the TRUTH is?
The TRUTH is many will never arrive to that point. Ooouu, was that harsh? Was I wrong to say that? See the thing about that statement is it’s not that many of these individuals don’t have skills, talents and ideas to get them there it’s the fear, the excuses, and the lack of discipline that will stop them.
Les Brown once said
“The graveyard is the richest place on earth, because it is here that you will find all the hopes and dreams that were never fulfilled, the books that were never written, the songs that were never sung, the inventions that were never shared, the cures that were never discovered, all because someone was too afraid to take that first step, keep with the problem, or determined to carry out their dream.”
2019 I’ve finally brought something to life that I sat on for years.

Ask me why I delayed and if I keep it real it was fear and distractions. I was doing a ton of things I had no business doing, these all took me away from my implementing core pieces connected to my purpose. Fear can paralyze you from moving, I ignored the fear because fear never stopped me before from doing anything else so it was easy to tuck this one thing away in a corner. My fear was intertwined with my pride, because I was fearful it would not go how I expected and my pride would not allow me to fall or fail so time, as time does, kept moving.
Today I want to encourage the dreamers, and the visionaries. You have a desire for a life that keeps you up at night, you have an idea that you have no clue where to start. It comes and goes, one minute your on fire, next minute you don’t even want to think about it. Start small, small wins matter. Ask for help, get with people who are skilled where you are not. My favorite suggestion, Google it! We are in a time where we have such an advantage, the internet has a wealth of information to point us in the right direction.
Ask yourself, what are you scared of? Ok. What if you do fail? Ok. But, what if you don’t?
When God gives you an assignment you can’t delay.
Delayed obedience is still disobedience.
