Hey my lovely people, back at it again with another blog. This blog personally has been one of my biggest struggles, seriously it has. Fear. Something we all deal with as a business owner, how can we stop fear from controlling us? How can we conquer this bad wolf called fear? In a few simple *but takes a lot of work* steps.
First, we have to confront the fear. We have to stop running from it and confront it head-on. When those thoughts creep into our head telling us that we won’t be successful, that we’ll never make 6-7 figures, how we’ll never be able to finally have financial freedom, well that my friend is fear, and it’s also the enemy trying to discredit you, and your hard work. Everything takes time, you have to give yourself grace, of course, you won’t have it all figured out, but you won’t be looking crazy stuck in the wind. Be sure to know that you have the power to control the fear.
Secondly, you have to say something positive back to that negative thought. Your words have power. Once a thought pops up into your head, you HAVE to make sure that you speak something positive back to that negative thought. You have to say daily affirmations over yourself, over your life, and over your business. Recently I came across a business prayer, and I’ll share it with you.
“Father I thank you for the gifts and talents that you have given me to make a business for myself. I declare today over strategic alignment for my business. I declare that I will generate revenue from every continent, and from multiple countries. I’m in demand! People are looking for me, to bless me, and to secure my services from all over the world! My gift is crossing genres, causing industries to collab, and birthing new products and innovative concepts and ideas. What God has graced me to do, helps people, encourages people, rescues people, preserves people, and generates millions of dollars! In Jesus name Amen!”
You have to push forward. You have to keep going even when you don’t FEEL like it. Someone is depending on your business to help them in some way, shape, or form. You can’t allow fear to keep you back from purpose. Your purpose is the very reason why you even started this business, you realized that there was a problem, and your business meets the need. You have to be secure in knowing that where you are right now in business is not the end goal. I know we all want financial freedom, and to be secure, but “get rich quick” isn’t going to teach us what we need to learn now. I strongly believe that you learn business every day, so if you’re already trying to get rich quick, you haven’t even learned financial literacy. You’ll blow the million dollars before you even get it. Take the time you have now, and learn something every day.
You just have to do it. That book you want to write… Just do it. That class you want to teach… Just do it. Those clothes you want to sell… Just do it. That group you want to start.. Just do it. The worst thing that can happen is that it fails, and failure is actually good, it teaches you how to be successful. Don’t let anything hold you back in 2018. Do everything that you want to do.
Be still, and know that he is God.
