For 2 years I’ve had an idea God put in my heart to start. It came from a growth group I led for small business owners. The author had a really cool way of helping people find where their ‘fit’ was within volunteering at a church. My thought was taking the principles and applying it to entrepreneurs…helping them find what type of business they should open.
I planned the entire thing out. I wrote the workbook, I developed surveys and questions, I laid out the website, I had my designer do graphics, and I even planned the first event.
But…I never LAUNCHED if. I never pressed play. And for the last 2 years, I’ve had a rock in my shoe, a thorn in my side, an anxiety and frustration that I never did it.
Sound familiar? We entrepreneurs have a tendency to do this. We plan, talk about it, get people fired up, and then we fall short from execution.
Maybe you’ve never experienced it in business, but in other areas of your life. A diet you wanted to start, an exercise routine you wanted to develop. We read the books, we have the supplements, but we fail to execute.
You’re not alone. And this threat of inaction will never go away so long as we live in this world that has an enemy that seeks to destroy our dreams before we can even start.
We’re up against….the RESISTANCE.
The Bible says
"We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ." 2 Corinthians 10:5 NIV
God is letting us know that there is an enemy that sets itself up against God. This enemy attacks the mind. All business ideas start in the mind, and that’s where the enemy seeks to gain control.
But this verse also gives the solution. We must take the thoughts captive and made then obedient to Christ. What this means is that we have to see it as our instructions from God into what we need to be doing, and we need to go out and do it…in His name!
It’s not enough for you to just plan an idea or tell 3 people about it. That’s half the battle. The other half is actually doing it. That’s when the blood, sweat and tears come out. That’s when the rubber meets the road, when you fight the RESISTANCE that doesn’t want you to get started.
If you have a dream paint, then you pick up a brush. If you have a dream to help others repair their credit, then you buy the domain and get the business cards.
We all have dreams. Having a dream is important, but EXECUTION is where it all matters.
When I get to heaven, I want to hear God say “Well DONE my faithful servant,” because he’s not going to say “Well planned” or “Well thought” or “Well strategized” either.
Coming up with business ideas is fun, I love the creation phase. Going after them is the matter. Don’t delay another day on your dreams. It’s now or never. We can’t afford another day of delay. The world needs to know.
Can I help you be a little momentum for your idea? Message me, this is what I do as my calling. I’ll send you a resource.
