Finding balance in this area was key. I am learning how to discern what is mine to do. I am learning how to run and grow a business. I am learning how to stay focused on my vision. I am learning to say NO!
This revelation didn't come from a life coach or a self help book. It came from my heart. The heart holds the key to everything we wish to accomplish. When we are courageous enough to listen to our heart (for me that's God) we can put all our qualities into practice for our greater good! It's great to collaborate with people and share ideas, but ultimately its up to me to put things into action and to decide what works for me.
What I have learned is this ~ I have a clear vision and it drives me everyday. I am excited about it and it brings me joy everyday to focus on moving forward. Now that I know what it feels like, I also know when something doesn't align with my vision. The tricky part is to acknowledge it and be OK with saying NO and making the choice to stick with the plan.
I have some great support and people that keep me grounded, but it still has to be my vision and action.
So what is your dream? What are you so passionate about that you eat, sleep and breathe it? What is your challenge or distraction? Listen to your heart! God put it there for a reason and if it truly is your dream, it won't go away, it will only get stronger. Take care of it! Nourish it! And don't let distractions take you away from it!
