I Am Done Playing Small
In the beginning my family, I won't mention any names, made fun of me when I started this oily journey. They scoffed at the fact that it was an MLM, even said that it was a Pyramid Scheme. NOPE....those are illegal and look more like Corporate America and the standard 9-5 company job. They said this business was a waste of time and money. They said I was fooling myself. They said it was a FAD....really? FAD's don't last over 5,000 years. They looked at me like I was weird.......and I am...but not in that sense.
In the beginning I let my mind play tricks on me, even letting the Devil to have a foothold. I would listen to things like you can't do that, you aren't worthy, you aren't smart enough, you are a recovering addict, what makes you think that anyone would believe you or trust you, you're too fat to be running a health and wellness company, etc...etc......you get the idea. ALL LIES!!
Well.....NO MORE....that was letting small minds convince me that my dreams were too big. NO THEY AREN'T!! This is the first time in my life that I have allowed myself to dream or even be in the right sober state of mind to dream a dream. This is the first time that I truly believe in myself and that I can accomplish my dreams. NO...I can't do it on my own, but I CAN do it with JESUS by my side and God leading me every step of the way as I rely on his wisdom, power and vision. NO...it's not always going to be sunshine and unicorns. YES...it will be tough at times, but I CAN succeed and I CAN do anything I put my mind to with the power of the Holy Spirit flowing through me.
NO, I am not where I want to be YET, but I WILL BE and I am enjoying the journey and the process right here, right now, exactly for a moment like this. Don't EVER let anyone rent space in your head other than God and positive thinking. YOU CAN DO THIS TOO! YOU CAN BE A SUCCESS TOO! YOU CAN MAKE YOUR DREAMS COME TRUE! YOU CAN DO ANYTHING YOU PUT YOUR MIND TO!!
