Get out of the Boat

 We all have a desire to grow, accomplish, and exceed but there's always those pesky obstacles that hinder us from achieving our aspirations. We begin to listen to that voice that tells us that we're fine where we're at or we'll stay here just a little longer and catch the next opportunity. We diminish our potential by making our own boundaries and staying in our comfort zones. God has planned great things for us, but we have to take a leap of faith and just trust that everything will work out on it's own. Change cannot occur unless you make the first move, you have to be willing to let go of the past in order to move onto the next best thing. Fear is a complex emotion that can be crippling and debilitating if not addressed immediately. We are not slaves to our emotions and cannot allow them to get the best of us or our situation.
    I think, act, and feel through my current emotion which sometimes makes me stubborn and selfish. When we act through our emotions mistakes are made and regrets surface. Sometimes we just need to take a minute and realize that these emotions are situational and that we will be able to get through the current issue. We cannot allow fear to draw boundaries on our talents and abilites that God has blessed us with. If you are looking to grow, then get out of the box. Stop limiting yourself. For those of you who have time, I highly recommend reading the book "If You Want to Walk on Water Then You Have to Get Out of the Boat", it is an insightful and profound book with motivational guidance that challenges you to make a change and grow in your walk.
