Something weird yet extraordinary happened to me the other day.
There’s a new project and a new path I’m working on as a Content Marketer. It’s been something I’ve been passionate about for the longest time, and finally decided to go all in on it.
A few weeks ago I heard God say to me “Winston Go talk to your former employer about working with him on the project“.
Now I’m big on spirituality, as it has been a major influence in my life in many ways. As a matter of fact 5Y2M was born out of my spiritual connection with God.
Still for some reason I hesitated and procrastinated to reach out and make that call.
Maybe it was fear that prevented me from doing so right away. The fear that reaching out meant that I was taking a step backwards in my life, rather than moving on as I had swore never to look back once I left.
Maybe it was pride. The pride that comes with feeling that reaching out meant that I was asking for a handout, or indirectly begging for a way back in.
It’s more likely the second one. Hey I’m still working on myself and growing too.
I kept telling myself I didn’t need to go that route God wanted me to. That I could find another way.
Whether it was that I had overcome the fear, or I finally was willing to move pass my pride I finally reached out.
That one phone conversation had opened up certain doors for me that will be beneficial for years to come, based on what I’m trying to accomplish. Doors that may not have been possible had I allowed pride to stop me from reaching out.
So for those of you reading this the biggest takeaway is never ignore the voice that’s telling you to go.
Whether it’s to pursue a dream or an idea, you never know where that one decision will lead to. Far more than you could have hoped, imagined, or prayed for.
What Am I Grateful For About This Situation?
I’m grateful that I didn’t allow fear or my pride to stop me from reaching out. That I can see I am growing as a person and become better.
What Did I Learn From This Situation?
I learned the importance of not letting my own inhibitions stop me from taking action, no matter how scary it may be. To always listen to that voice in my head that’s telling me to go.
How Can I Use This In The Future To Become Better?
I will trust that everything happens for a reason, even when I can’t see how or why. That I will not procrastinate whenever I hear the voice of God say “Winston…go!”
