From the mind of @emellewriter…
I will never understand the concept of wanting to do something and not doing it. I mean, what the hell are you afraid of? You’re either going to try to do something and do well. Or, try and fail. But, either way, you’re probably going to live another day to try again. There is nothing but space and opportunity out there in the world for you to explore and try, just do something.
Your whole life is full of falling anyway from the time you’re a baby. When you learned to walk, you fell many times before you were able to walk steadily. Why would anything else be different? But, did you stop walking? Did you stop trying? No, you stood on your wobbly little fat baby legs and walked towards your mama or daddy until you got it right.
That’s literally how life works. You fall sometimes but you get up again and again until you get it right. You don’t just not try at all or give up after the first time. Have some resilience. Stop being scared of being successful, or failing. Get your butt up and be all that God created you to be. You were not created to be dull, lifeless, lazy or derelict.
You are something amazing to behold and it’s time to step into it. Wasting away your talents, your gifts, your passion and your purpose is a slap in the face to the one that created you. Make a choice to either step out, fall, get dirty and clean up to try again; or just stay in and do nothing. Either way, you must make a choice.
It will not be easy, it will not be painless and it will not come without tribulation. But, it will pay off in the long run and that is what we are all working towards – the future.
