Faith Without Works is Dead!
I want to be rich! *catches up on favorite TV shows* I sure wish I could get that new job *never updates resume* No matter what I do, I just can’t lose weight *eats the 3rd thousand calorie meal of the day* How many of you are guilty of this? I know I am. Guilty of “proclaiming” I want something so bad and continuing my day without making any effort to obtain it. Here’s what’s funny to me, getting upset when things don’t work out how we planned in our head when we did absolutely nothing, but run our lips about what it is that we desire.
Talking gets us nowhere! No matter how often you say it, no matter how convincing you sound to yourself and others. If you do nothing, nothing will happen. I am a firm believer in the power of the tongue. Speaking things into existence, proclaiming them, envisioning them as if they were. However, I think a lot of us missed the fine print where it says, CAUTION: this is not magic, hard work is required. We live in a society where everything looks instant, where everyone feels like they’re entitled to a stress free life. Where minimal effort is given with the EXPECTATION of phenomenal results.
Sorry to break it to you, but you’ll fail over and over again if your view of how to gain success is equivalent to those nights you don’t feel like cooking, so you run to your nearest Chick-fil-a. This is not a feel good post. My intent wasn’t to put butterflies in your stomach. It wasn’t to make you believe whatever you put your hands to will come to pass with minimal effort. We are far too babied now a days. It won’t be easy. It’s going to take way more than you plan to put in and you probably won’t enjoy every step of the way. However, I can assure you it will be worth it.
Success is NOT easy!
If it were easy to be successful (whatever your definition of that is) don’t you think we’d all be? I do! We dream and dread day in and out. Hoping, wishing, speaking so passionately about the desires of our hearts, but can’t fathom being uncomfortable in order to get there. Get uncomfortable boo! Do the things you fear doing in order to grow. Put yourself out there, Stop wasting your time being “fake busy”. Stop making up so many excuses and stop allowing yourself to be so distracted. I want all of us to make it, I want all of us to win and I want us to live the life we all want to live. So get out there and work, love. I believe in you, we believe in you and if you need any support, you know where to find us.
