Often we doubt who we are, why we can't be successful, and all the reasons we shouldn't take the first step toward our next phase in life.
And honestly... I'm sick of it!
Months ago, I decided to kick negativity, excuses, procrastination, and pity parties to the C-U-R-B! No matter where we are in life, we can be tricked into devaluing what we're made of and where we're destined to go. You may be saying, well Clarissa Joi, you already had stuff going on... but the reality is... it was ONLY "going on". I wasn't executing timely and neither did I thoroughly complete what I'd started. I would start working on something great, then stop. Or start working on the next great thing before finishing the last great thing.
I know I'm not alone in this habitual cycle, so I'm sharing 3 important reminders for you!
1) Know who you are! Genesis 1:27 tells us that we are made in His image. How AMAZING is that? We're talking about someone who overcame lies, non-acceptance from his kin, traps, physical abuse, and ultimately death! And you have that same DNA, which means you literally can conquer ANY obstacle that's before you. And if that's not good enough, think back over the things you've already successfully overcome. There are very valuable lessons in everything you've gone through. You are stronger, smarter, and more courageous than you give yourself credit for.
TODAY... ask yourself, what if I am the next ______________? (you fill in the blank)
2) Know that you can! Philippians 4:13 tells us that we can do all things through Christ. There are NO disclaimers or parameters in that scripture, so why do we put them on our lives? I personally feel that I've had an outer-body experience over the last several years. There were times I was so low mentally and physically that I had no clue how I was making it... let alone mothering a young child. But all the while, it wasn't me. The strength of Christ kept me going, just as He is right there for you too.
TODAY... ask yourself, what if I can accomplish ______________? (you fill in the blank)
3) Know that you will! Romans 8:37 tells us that we are more than victorious through Him. Just when I thought victorious was the peak of the mountain... this scripture corrected me. We are MORE THAN victorious! I took my own advice and got back in school, rebranded my business, and launched an online course...all within a matter of 60 days! So what are YOU waiting for? It is written. I've reminded you. And you can even re-read it for yourself.
TODAY... ask yourself, what if I take the steps to ______________? (you fill in the blank)
Instead of pondering who you "think you" aren't, why you "think you" can't, or why you "think you" shouldn't... reverse it TODAY!
What did you fill in your blanks? What are you going to conquer? What are you going to achieve? I'd love to hear from you.
