You might have already resolved to achieve weight loss/weight gain, create new productive habits, save money for your dreams, or improve your relationships. These are all great! One of our “new year’s resolutions” or what we’d also call as “faith goals” for this year as a family is to read more.
As you were writing or thinking about these resolutions, you probably have thought of,
at least once, to resolve to give more. The idea of changing gears to finally pursue your secret passion--something related to helping others or making the world a better place--has crossed your mind. You get excited about the idea of finally putting your dream into action.
And then you doubt yourself. You decide it’s not the right time yet for that dream.
There’s still a lot of things at stake.
Work, family, relationships.
You might have thought it twice, or even three times. But you struggled to commit to it.
You don’t feel you have the resources to pursue that dream yet.
“Maybe when I get promoted.”
“Maybe when I no longer have this responsibility.”
“Maybe when I finally get to take a sabbatical at work.”
“Maybe when the business has grown 10x.”
“Maybe when I retire.”
Frankly, even when you reach those milestones, you will doubt yourself again.
You will once again think that you still don’t have enough to give.
That is false. You have so much to give.
You just have to investigate. You have to break things down into details to know that you have something to give.
And with that knowledge, you’ll be convinced that you can, in fact, pursue your dream NOW.
Still doubtful? Let’s chat about it. Email us through firstname.lastname@example.org if this is you. We’d love to talk with you about it!
