Honestly, I do! I wish that you would go for your dreams like your life depended on it, because guess what? They DO.
The Bible tells us in Romans 8: 19, that Creation is waiting for you to be revealed. Yes, you!
You might feel unqualified
You might feel inadequate
You might feel unprepared
But guess what?! You join the millions of others who took the leap of faith anyway!
You heard this before:
JK Rowling was turned down by 6 publishers before the awesome Harry Potter books made history.
Oprah was told by her first boss that she was too emotional and not right for TV, and according to Forbes Magazine remains the richest self-made woman and only black female billionaire.
Walt Disney was fired from a Missouri newspaper for “not being creative enough. He’s been bankrupt but now is a household name! He still holds the record for the most Oscars won by an individual, according to Walt Disney.com.
I look at lists like this and it encourages me to carry on even when I slip up. Most of my life is lived out in the public eye, which means that you get to see my messy times as well as my awesome times.
I take ownership of everything, because it’s all apart of my story.
I know that it’s because of my story that I overcome.
I can talk to people all over the world and pull them out of despair because I know what that feels like.
I can look you in the eye, and say ‘nothing is impossible’ because I have seen this for myself.
I tell you about miracles everyday, because my life IS a miracle.
So, go on! I double dare you to silence the fear and do it anyway.
Today, I’m encouraging you to; start that biz, apply for that job, send in that show-reel, turn up to that audition, ask that guy out…it’s time!
