I’ll admit that I live with a restlessness that cripples me with fear, anxiety, and frustration.
You’re not going to believe me when I tell you what’s killing me…
Here we go – what’s killing me is that I feel that at times I’m not living out my purpose. I feel like there’s so much more for me to do. I wrestle with so many books I want to write and courses I want to teach that it paralyzes me.
From the outside looking in, I realize that I’m accomplishing a lot, pushing God’s agenda forward, and making progress on many fronts in my business. But I’m human, and different fears loom over me still.
We all have fears that hold us back from reaching our full potential.
We know a lot about our businesses, we even know our mission and many of us know our purpose. We know we’re supposed to be in the will of God at all times. But knowing it and actually feeling it fully are two different things.
Many of us think that if we change our business model, switch industries, jump ship to another client or close up shop and open up a new business in a different place, we’ll FEEL that purpose we’re seeking.
The truth is most of us have enough opportunity right in front of us.
It’s not the place that needs to change. It’s our perspective that needs adjustment.
The place where God has us both right now is significant, even if you’re struggling to find clients or dealing with a terrible employee. God’s placed us here and has a very important mission for us.
The Bible says:
"But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you". Matthew 6:33
