This week we're continuing the conversation on purpose and we believe to live a meaningful, fulfilling and purpose driven life these three things should be done right for them to work for you. In our newly released eGuide "4 Foolproof Ways to winning in life" our founder is sharing what helped her to develop a winning streak. Ways that not only set you up for success but for Godly greatness. She also delves into purpose blockers including the ones discussed below.
We like to call these the power 3. Side note: This might not be for you. Maybe you've already mastered these or know this already. If that's the case please pass along to a girl who would need the encouragement and reminder. Let's dig in.
While all (3) points are very much applicable to killing your purpose if not done right, they can also help you find your purpose if done right. The first one we will talk about is COMMUNITY.
1. You lack (good and Godly) Community: Community will be absolutely importante to your purpose walk. Who are your friends? Who do you spend most of your time with? There is a saying that goes "show me your friends and I'll show you your future" and honey this could not be truer. The people who are constantly in your ear with advice about what you should do, how you should do it, when you should do it will affect the decisions you make in life. You want to make sure that these are people with the same values you hold. Friends who can encourage you when you need it most. Friends who can pray with you and for you. Friends who can correct you in love.
2. You lack Confidence: This can be a result of #1. With the wrong community you can begin to believe things about you that actually aren't true. Having confidence is a huge deal. Check out our IG post on that here. We will be tackling identity in the coming months but this will make or break who you become. You won't ever be able to live purposefully without confidence. Having confidence will be the difference between your success or your failure. You will begin to doubt yourself, what you are capable of accomplishing. You won't see yourself through the eyes of God; you were fearfully and wonderfully made but you won't be able to see that when you're lacking confidence. Be sure that the friends and community surround will build you up and not tear you down. And if you're reading this you're certainly on the right track :)
3. You lack consistency: Simply put, you start something only to stop because you either get too busy with other things or you get a bit too laid back. Consistency is another key thing to living a successful and purposeful life. Do me a favor and stay the course girl. Other girls are depending on you and those looking up to you are depending on you. If you're having a hard time sticking to the script this is for you. Maybe there is a dream you want to pursue but because you're not seeing immediate results you give up. Stay the course. A goal you've set and would like to see come to pass. Stay the course. It won't happen overnight but sure enough if you stay consistent you will begin to see the fruits of your labor.
These are only a few sure ways you can kill your purpose but some very important ones that you should take into consideration and begin to make the necessary changes if you have to.
