We All Have a Season
Seasons. Time. I think about how great Julius Erving, Dr. J, was as a professional basketball player. He had a marvelous basketball career. And then there was Kareem, A.J. and Magic Johnson of the Los Angeles Lakers. Larry Bird of the Boston Celtics. Dominique Wilkins of the Atlanta Hawks, Kobe Bryant of the Los Angeles Lakers, LeBron James of the Cleveland Cavaliers and I could go on and on and I think I will….Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh of the Miami Heat and of course I can’t forget one of the best players in the NBA today and one of my favorite players, Kevin Durant of the Oklahoma Thunder. They have and continue to have their seasons.
There are millions of people who have had seasons as we all do and will in this life. Berry Gordy, founder of Motown Records, Michael Jackson, one of the greatest entertainers that has ever breathed. Whitney Houston, Marvin Gaye, James Taylor, Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin and again, I could go on and on, but I will stop here and say, we all have a season, a time when we will do what we love or perhaps are called by God to do.
What do you do when you hear someone say to you, maybe this is not the season for you to do this or that. Maybe there is some truth to that, but what do you do when you have an ocean inside you wanting to pour, flow out of you with all the things that you desire to do. Have you ever felt or experienced anything like this. I do every day.
You See, Women Are Multi-Talented. It’s Who We Are!
There have been and I know there will still be times when I want to do ten million things. I have gotten frustrated because I’ve been all over the map trying to accomplish a million things all at once until I devised and implemented a plan for myself.
While I can understand and appreciate the fact that there is a season for everything, in everything there is a season. If there is something in you stirring around in your heart and you know for a fact that it has been written, etched and set in stone, then all you have to do is write out a clear plan and get all the things that you want to do. Of course we all have a season, but it doesn’t mean that we just have to do one thing during our season. Write out your plan and stick to it, believe that you can do it and you will.
To God be all the glory as we work as Christian women entrepreneurs who love to do business God’s way!
