Hey loves! V here, back again with another podcast! First, let me start by thanking you all for your support! So far, my podcasts are being well received and it motivates me to keep on sharing with you all.
Which brings me to this week’s episode – “Pursue with Passion”.
A few weeks ago, I was talking to a friend of mine. She began to share with me some of her dreams and goals and how she was struggling to find the passion to pursue them. She wasn’t happy in her career. She knew she didn’t want to continue in that career field so changing companies was also not an option. However, she did know that she wanted to go into business for herself.
When I asked her why won’t she start doing the necessary work to get her business off the ground – she listed several EXCUSES – fear of rejection, fear of not receiving support from others and lack of motivation/passion were among her top three.
I wonder how many of you out there are in the same boat. You’re not happy with your career and you have all of these ideas to start a not-for-profit, a t-shirt business, a V-log/You-Tube channel, create your own business, etc. but you find that you lack passion and motivation or are too afraid to take a leap of faith.
And just as I challenged my friend, I want to challenge you all too! Have you ever considered where you could be by now if you had already gotten started yesterday? That’s such a powerful question to ask ourselves as it really makes us realize how much time we waste living in fear and not pursuing our dreams. They say that the graveyard is the richest place on Earth and it’s not because of all of the money spent in burying the dead. No – it’s considered the richest place because of all of the knowledge, all of the dreams, all of the businesses that were never started because someone was living in fear and/or not pursuing their goals with a fervor like no other!
All of the not-for-profits that were never started.
All of the t-shirts that were never made.
All of the V-logs that were never shared to inspire others.
All of the business that were never created!
I don’t know about you but I definitely don’t want my dreams to die with me! That is why I am pursuing them with every ounce of passion I have and I want to encourage you to do the same. Me starting this blog journey was me pursuing my dreams with every passion that I have! No one can see the vision you have and no one can execute that vision like you can. That is why God specifically chose you to be the one to have the dream in the first place! He already knew you were the best person for the job! Please don’t allow your dreams to die with you!
Next week, I’m going to share with you all my third-quarter goals check in. Basically, I set goals in the New Year, as did most of you, and every quarter I revisit those goals to make sure I’m on track! I encourage you to look at it as you evaluate your own goals and I pray that you begin to pursue all of your dreams with a passion and motivation like you never have before.
