The next obstacle I want to talk about tonight is one that gets A LOT of people. That is the obstacle of Self-Sabotage. Looking back at the ladder of success graphic from the first post, many are stuck down at the 0-30% rungs and refuse to move up (0% = I won’t; 10% = I can’t; 20% = I don’t know how; 30% = I wish I could).
Self-sabotage is like cutting the limb of a tree while you are sitting on that limb. Instead, you need to get out of your own way and believe in yourself. Believing looks less like optimism and more like courage. You are worthy of overcoming whatever is blocking you from the life you dream of and DESERVE.
In our daughter’s room, we have posted a sign “She believed she could, so she did.”
God designed you for greatness and He has a purpose for your life. If you have found yourself walking down a path of trials and difficulties, don’t get discouraged. In all things, God works for the good of those who love Him.
