Proverbs 18:10 The name of the Lord is a strong tower; the righteous run into it and are safe.
What is it that you have been needing to do and you just don’t feel motivated to get it done? It’s my understanding that motivation doesn’t come first. It comes after you’ve been doing what you need to do. Nike says it best.
Just do it
As Harvard psychologist Jerome Bruner says, “you’re more likely to act yourself into feeling then feel yourself into action.” So act! Whatever it is you know you should do, do it.
You must overcome the fear and break the cycle. The longer you wait the harder it will be to get started. I love this African proverb below it puts everything in perspective.
Every morning in Africa, a gazelle wakes up. It knows that it must run faster than the fastest lion or it will be killed. Every morning a lion wakes up. It knows that it must outrun the slowest gazelle or it will starve to death.
It doesn’t matter whether you are a lion or a gazelle. When the sun comes up you better be running.
Today, face your fear, break the cycle, take action even though it may seem small or insignificant. Sometimes, baby steps are all you need to get going.
Have a Godfidence day!
