We love comfortable. It’s true our beds must be just right, our coffee brewed to our heart’s delight and perhaps fluffy sock are preferable. We have to admit that sometimes comfortableness can be very very good. Then on the flip side, it can be very bad. When you are building a legacy, changing the game, building something that will outlast you requires stomping out it’s the greatest enemy and hindrance – comfortableness.
All the great people that have done great things before you probably weren’t so comfortable. They may have had ideas that were less than popular and that went against the grain. They destroyed the box that had a pretty prepackaged way of doing things, and they discovered the ingenious – the limitless possibilities of just daring to be different. Daring to dream things that took great doses of courage nobody else had. The power of believing that they were created for more and that the more wouldn’t come to where they were comfortable but to where they were drawn out into the deep where there was no certainty.
I never knew that I could swim and not sink until I was so deep in that there was nothing to hold me up but the courage that I must swim or drown in these waters of comfortableness.
What will you gain by taking a step?
The question isn’t if you can do it – the question is when? The greatest hindrance to moving forward is standing still. Standing still gets you nowhere – but taking a step a of faith can get you to places you could only imagine. Often standing still seems to be much safer – less risky. There are no chances or opportunities without some type of risk. The exciting part is that your not just taking a risk – your putting your trust and faith in God. It is easier to plunge forward when you know God is by your side.
Step out – just do it. When you are preparing to head to work. When you step out in the morning – get in your car don’t you expect it to work – don’t you even expect that you will arrive at your destination? Yes! That is faith – you didn’t know what was ahead totally, but did it stop you.
Don’t let what could go wrong hinder you from going forward. It may be scary, but do it anyway. You may have naysayers – do it anyway. It make take a lot of falling and getting back up – do it anyway! You will never know what you can do unless you do it. You will never reach that mountain top unless you get to climbing.
This weeks declaration……
” I am not going to stand in my way any longer – I’m going to push through the fear. I can and I will. Standing still is not an option – moving forward is the plan that can not fail as long as I walk in faith. I have everything I need within me to press pass limits.”
Go do it!
