Just do it! Stop worrying about what others might say. Are you planning to do anything that’s going to hurt you or anybody else? No? So just go for it! There are so many things in life that cause people to not go after their dreams. What’s stopping you? What’s getting in the way? What are you allowing to hold you back? What excuse are you using this time? Is it age? Is it a lack of money? Is it a lack of opportunity? Is it that you are waiting on God?
Okay, I get it. You’ve been praying and asking and waiting for God to open that door; but what are you doing in the process? Are you waiting by faith or walking by faith? Walking and Waiting are both actions. They are both something that can be done. But to get the results you are believing for, you need to do BOTH. You can’t just rely on one without the other. You can’t walk without the expectation of reaching a destination; you can’t just wait without an expectation of something happening. Why else would you walk? Why else would you wait? You must walk and wait. They go hand in hand. Faith without works is dead. Point. Blank. Period. I can sit and pray that God opens a door for me to get a job, but if I don’t get off my roody-poo and “walk” by applying for a job, I shouldn’t “wait” with the expectation that a job will hire me.
You can “wait” in the midst of your “walking”, but eventually you gotta just do it! You’ve got to want it so bad, that you won’t allow anything to hold you back. You can say that you want to lose weight, but if you don’t begin to act on that by doing what it takes, you’ll probably begin to gain more weight because you’re just sitting around saying what you want to do while still eating whatever comes your way. You can not just wait for things to happen. When you begin to do what needs to be done (Walking), you can then Wait with the expectation that something will happen.
During this time of walking and waiting, don’t allow doubt to sneak in. You may not see instantaneous results, but that doesn’t mean your goals won’t come into fruition. You must also change your mind set so that you believe in what God has put in YOU. I hate to sound clichéd, but Beyoncé didn’t just happen overnight. Her daddy knew what he was doing. It took years for Beyoncé to get over being shy and feeling like she needed a group, to believe that she could do it on her own, and become the dynamic solo entertainer that she is today.
Yes, she has always had people who believed in her, and you might be saying that you don’t. Okay…are you going to allow that to stop you? If you don’t believe in yourself, who will. How do you know your “Daddy”, doesn’t know what he’s doing? Don’t allow what the naysayers say, to be proven true by not fulfilling your destiny. * I apologize for the Destiny’s Child reference while mentioning Beyoncé…it wasn’t planned. * What I am trying to say is, you have to do what you believe you should do, and not concern yourself with what others think about it. Keep in mind that it’s not your business to know what others say or think about you. There is nothing you can do to control that anyway. It’s a waste of time and energy, which you could be putting into what you can control which is working to achieving your dreams.
Remember that sitting (waiting) for too long can give you sores. Get up and just do It! Whatever “It” may be. It may not be any easy road, but just take that first step. Only God knows where that step of faith will take you. Just do it!
