Stop Waiting & Get What’s Yours

“Baby I’m too busy counting all these blessings, blessings” – Blessings x Lecrae ft. Ty Dolla $ign

Less qualified people have filled positions you’ve been hesitant to apply to. 

Let that sink in.

There’s no use in waiting another five years to do what you could do right now. Draft up the proposal. Get the resume edited. Call up your connections, and get your blessing. 

Listen, you getting your blessing isn’t a selfish thing. It’s actually worse if you don’t say yes to taking the necessary steps needed to actualize the dreams that have been burning inside you all this time. Saying yes means that others will be blessed. Your hard work, your talents, your gifts, your doing things even if you fail, will absolutely mean answered prayer for someone else.

And no, you may never hear about those prayers, but that isn’t for you. You don’t do it for the glory, you do it because you have to. 

Own that. 

You get to note the responsibility you hold as an educator, an artist, a songwriter, a parent, a lawyer, a student, a mentor, an accountant, a researcher, a police officer, a solider. The responsibility to use the abilities you were born with, to sharpen them by being a student of your craft, to seek feedback from those who are where you want to be. 

This post might make you upset because I’m calling you out. These words might be shining light on the places you’ve been ignoring.

But, you need this.

It’s time to stop thinking you’re not good enough. It’s time to imagine what your life would be like if doubt wasn’t an added ingredient.

People have failed you, but you’re still here, You’ve dropped out at some points along the way, but you’re still here. Your friends and family may be saying, “What are you even doing with your life?” but you are still here.

And because you exist, because you have breath in your body, means you have another opportunity (if only the next 24 hours) to surprise yourself. 

Don’t miss it. None of this discounts everything you’ve done in your life up until now. It doesn’t take away from every heart you’ve touched. It’s not a: “Your best wasn’t good enough, so do better.” No, this message is for the person who’s become comfortable letting others fill shoes that they know they should be wearing. 

You know who you are. Go and get yours. Go and do it like only you can. Don’t let another excuse keep you from it.
