I am a very introspective person…I’m constantly examining and evaluating myself. At times, I can be too hard on myself, because I want to maximize my potential. I see life as a journey of opportunities and learning experiences that I’m not trying to miss out on. Not long ago, I ran across a list I made a few years ago about things that I want to do…I guess you could call it my long-term goals…I call it my Destiny List. As I looked at the list, I forgot that I had written some of those dreams and desires down. I began to think about what I needed to reach these goal and what was holding me back. I realized that the only thing that was holding me back was fear. I consider myself to be a fearless person, but deep down inside I have experienced some self-doubt as well as some fear of not succeeding. Don’t get me wrong, I am confident in who I am as woman and love who God has created me to be. There have been times where I’ve looked at my circumstance whether it has been lack of resources, personal connection, or whatever it may have been and allowed it to shake my faith. To be honest, I used my circumstance as excuses as to why I couldn’t do this or do that. But, I had to remind myself (and still do) that God has given me all of the talent, skills, and resources to make my dreams a reality. I have no room for excuses. All I have to do is walk in faith and fearlessly pursue my destiny.
So, I encourage all of you, my fellow dream makers to have no excuses and continue be in FEARLESS PURSUIT of your destiny.~Brandi
