Use Your Gifts and Pursue Your Dreams
In life there are obstacles, challenges, hurdles, valleys, pits, trials, tribulations, struggles, hardships, difficulties and so much more. In all these components of life, there are lessons to be learned. In those lessons there are life-changing steps we are forced to take and endure. The greatest lesson being, NEVER GIVE UP.
No matter how hard things may seem, the best thing you can do is stop, be still, pray and wait to hear from God.
As entrepreneurs, we are often faced with a myriad of challenges that I like to call blessings. Oftentimes, we think that whenever we have setbacks, we stop wanting to work towards achieving our many goals, but these setbacks are blessings that help us to see in what areas of life we may need to improve upon. As a business, owner, I’m constantly thinking of ways to grow my business more than I did the day before. I used to get frustrated, a bit down from time-to-time, with tears streaming down my face from disappointment. Now, I work my business embraced with a whole new attitude and confidence. It just doesn’t get any better than this. I’ve deepened my faith and now I’m on to a whole new level of marketing and everything else that I need to maintain a thriving design business. There were times when I literally just wanted to give up on my business simply because business was slow. There is a season for all things and in every single season I’ve experienced in my life, I realize that the season for giving up is when I no longer breathe.
If you feel like you can’t do what God has called you to do or you can’t utilize your gifts the way God intends for you to use them, don’t beat yourself up. The answer is super easy; go to God in prayer and then give Him the glory and praise for leading and guiding your next move.
