What are you waiting for?
(Here's help to get unstuck!)


Right now you may have a dream and it seems unattainable.The fulfillment of your desire feels like a huge mountain that is in your way. Achieving it seems so big, you don't even know where to start on the majority of days when you wake up.

Permission to speak into your life today?

Thank you.

[If you said yes, you're still reading. If not, you've already clicked the "x" in the corner... bye-bye]

Yesterday I wrote a post about the danger of assuming.  People waste a ton of time assuming something is going to happen that may never will. Just because you're thinking about something 90% of the day doesn't mean anyone else is.


Something happens when you take a step.

Even when you just move an inch, or tackle one small 15 minute item, you have taken a step forward. A friend of mine who is a fitness coach says that even if you do just a 30 minute walk you're still beating everyone who's laying on the couch! 

I beg you...take a step. Whether it be small, or even a little crazy...do it.

There are days that I've woke up and said to myself, "Today, I'm going to submit an article to the Huffington Post!" I spontaneously thought up a good story idea, banged out the query on my computer and sent it off.

And there, I did it.

Was it accepted? No. Not yet. Emphasis on the word yet.

But I took a step. And even when the answer's no, steps are still steps leading you ever onward in your pursuit.

The Huffington Post may not have accepted my proposal but a smaller paper did notice me and accepted. And many others have purchased my work. And the most important thing -- I'm getting better all the time in the process.

You will too, at whatever you're called to do. Take a step. Do something. Don't believe the idiots that say no one cares what you have to say or what is in your heart to do. Everyone doesn't care, but somebody does care, I guarantee it.

So often we get stuck because we think certain somebodies are more important than other somebodies. Let God sort out the people. Just get moving, my friend!

You are a life jacket to somebody who's drowning. But if they don't even know you're there, how can you help them?

Your talent, your passion is needed. Others will listen, they will respond. Maybe not the people you thought would, or dreamed of, but let that go. Somebody will respond, I promise you. Let go of your expectations as to who should notice you. Let God form your tribe.

 They're waiting, but you have to get out there. Take a step.
