How do I know I'm ready?
Do you have a little fire in your heart? A passion for something greater? Let me lean in here, real close…God gave you that desire. He lit that fire in your heart because he knows that you are greater and you can do more. As a creative we have all of these hobbies and passions that we love to bless others with. We have friends and family coming to us wanting this project done or that thing made. Girlfriend, you have something there! Take that God given talent and change the course of your life.
You desire something more:
As a wife or momma we can often get so lost in those titles. In our hearts we just want something that we can call ours… whether as a stay-at-home mom just wanting to contribute to our family finances or as a full-time employee just wanting to build something to call your own. That desire in your heart is God pulling you to walk in your calling, walk in the path that He has set out for you. Is it scary to step out to do something new? Absolutely. But it is also so very rewarding.
Your friends and family come to you to make things for them:
Buzz. Another text from someone close wanting you to make them a door hanger. Beep. There goes another one wanting you to make something to donate to the silent auction as a favor for you 3rd cousin twice removed. Ring. A phone call from an old friend reaching out to see if you still have the embroidery machine. Girlfriend. We. Don’t. Do. Free. Just because we can do All. The. Things. doesn’t mean that we should have to give away our time for free. You are valuable and your time is worth something. Don’t get caught up in your mind that it didn’t take you that long to do it. Your talents and abilities can change the course of your life but you have to start charging what you are worth.
God has given you all the signs:
Everywhere you go you hear it… Start a business. Every where you go you see it… Start your business. You can’t hide from it. You can’t run from it. It is following you! What is holding you back? FEAR? Fear of failure? Fear of success? Fear of other people’s opinions? Fear of not being enough? Fear of not enough time? Fear of losing money? Do you know what FEAR stands for? False Evidence Appearing Real. All of those thoughts are just distractions keeping you from the path that you should be on. When God gives you this sign, he is going to equip you with the knowledge and ability to build the thing he has placed in your heart.
Mamma. Wife. Daughter. Sister. Friend. You are so much more than those titles. You are you and there is no one else in this world that can fill your shoes. God destined you. He created you. He has a plan and a purpose for your life. So my question is… are you going for it or are you going to take a backseat to fear?
So where do I go from here? I’m so glad that you asked. We would love to help you where ever you to move your business, idea or passion to the next level. Check out our FREE group where we help mamas turn their passions into reality.
