Be decisive, take action, and accomplish more. This is my motto for this second half of 2016, as I’m continue on this full-time freelance career journey, with opportunity to be long-term. It definitely required some stepping out in faith and making decisions to pursue it, but I’m so glad I did! I’m anticipating accomplishing more this year than ever before, in my freelance work, on my educational journey, and in my blogging endeavors.
Part of my blogging endeavors includes participating in various Facebook blogging challenges and events, such as this Power Affiliate Club (PAC) Blogging Carnival for this month of July. Remaining consistent in blogging has been a challenge over the years, but I think I now have the best track record with this blog, because I have had a plan and implemented the plan. Sure, there have been some mistakes along the way, but I like how fellow PAC blogger Paula put it: we may be flawed, but we can also be awesome as we learn and improve along the way. She said that means we can be “flawsome” as we take action and apply what we learn!
So here is your July 8 inspiration to encourage you to be decisive, to take action, to accomplish more…and to be “flawsome.” 🙂
“Whatever the problem or situation,
decision is always better
than doubt and indecision.
Become a decisive person,
and you will accomplish a lot more
with less effort.
No one learns to hear from God
without making mistakes.
Don’t be overly concerned about errors.
Don’t take yourself too seriously.
You are a fallible human being,
not an infallible god.
Learn from your mistakes,
correct the ones you can,
and continue being decisive.
Don’t fall back into a pattern of indecision
just because you are wrong a few times.
Take some action and sow the seed.
Devote a reasonable amount of time
to waiting on God.
Don’t be afraid of yourself!
You will not be the first person
to make a mistake,
nor will you be the last.
The fear of failure
keeps thousands trapped in indecision,
which definitely steals joy
and complicates life.
Don’t be afraid to make a decision–
follow through with it.
Just do it!”
–Joyce Meyer in “New Day New You”
I think some of the best take-aways from this one are to remember we’re not perfect, and we will make mistakes, but as long as we keep learning from them and continue making decisions and taking action, we will be more productive and accomplish more!
So what are YOUR thoughts?
Are you a decisive person?
Do you find it easy or difficult to make decisions and follow through?
