This morning, I was sitting in the car listening to the radio while my husband was in the barber shop, suddenly I had a thought. Do I have a fear of BECOMING? As I pondered this thought, I begin to think about what others have said I am. I’m ugly, my clothes are not fly, my hair should look better, you are nerdy and a list of many other negative statements. These are the things I use to hear about who I am. Instead of standing in who I was BECOMING, I internalized those thoughts. Those internal thoughts created the fear of becoming who I was destined to be.
Over the years, I have stepped out in several areas that allowed me to use my gifts and talents. I would go so far then become fearful to take that next step, standout, speak loud, or be proud of who I was. All because I allowed what others thought of me to shape the destiny that was already created, ready, and waiting for me from the beginning of time. All I had to do was STEP on fear to see me. The truth is, my short comings, missteps and mistakes were always on the path of me becoming who I was destined to be. I had to see me, embrace me and walk in that destiny. Today, I want to encourage you to block out what people think of you. STEP on fear so you can begin to walk on your path of BECOMING. Begin to write your goals and dreams. Make a plan, then take a step. It’s time to kick the butt of fear and BECOME!
