Stop Waiting
Christine Norman

f you wait until you know beyond a shadow of a doubt, if you have to be absolutely convinced, or if you need to be completely reassured that you are 100% correct before you step out, you have likely waited too late.

Great risk yields great reward!

Don’t be afraid to be the first one to do something. Don’t get stuck waiting for others to see your dream, confirm your dream, or approve your dream. These are things we seek out of fear and self-doubt. Pioneers, visionaries, innovators, and inventors go first and set the pace in forward movement.

Don’t get stuck in paralysis from over-analysis!

The mistakes you can and will make starting out should not stop or prevent you. It is from those mistakes that you gain knowledge, strength, wisdom, and experience. Imagine a baby waiting to walk until he could walk perfectly without stumbling. Not realizing that every stumble was actually teaching him a lesson, strengthening his legs, and preparing him to walk.

Get up, get out, and start making strides toward your destiny! Take the risk and do the work. That little seed of courage that you have now–though it seems weak and small, will blossom into the full confidence you seek. But first you must step out…

“Remember, I commanded you to be strong and brave. Don’t be afraid, because the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.” (Joshua 1:9 ERV)

    Work Ethic
    I am not a sports fan, but I have always been a Kobe fan. My family has always wondered about my fascination with him when I hardly care for sports. What they don't understand is that the stories of his work ethic astound me. Hard work always gets my attention! They don't understand that work ethic is everything to me. My dad was a construction worker and ALWAYS did what he had to do for us. When my daughter was small and my ex was not working, my dad tried to come out of retirement and go back

    The Cost of Fear
    For those of you who do not know me, that is me circled in the picture above. I know the picture is a little grainy, but I absolutely love it because it captured everything that I was feeling at our book release party. When I look at it, I see how beautiful I look. I see how happy I look. I remember how overjoyed I felt. I wrote a chapter in an anthology with 19 other authors and when we came together for the launch party on this weekend, it was nothing short of divine; I see that when I look at
  4. Dab!

    Unsportsmanlike conduct? I get it, there are rules. But do we really want to say don’t celebrate the time of your life? Don’t have fun? Who’s really mad? You did the work, you overcame the obstacles, and now your preparation has met divine opportunity and you just want to dance, or dab a little, or even a lot! You are not the least bit worried about all of the negative forces that were against you, they thought you would never make it but you are too busy celebrating your successes to think of
