I released this e-book on my birthday. 10 Days of Power: Accessing the Power Within. It is a 10 day devotional that helps to bring awareness of the strength down on the inside of you. But I must be very honest I had a lot of concerns about putting this out into the world. Why may you say? See I am an introvert I don’t like being the center of attention or calling attention to myself. I almost dint put it out because of that fear. But I had listened to a periscope by Dr. Sonja Stribling on “Give yourself permission to be amazing. It was just what I needed to hear before the launch of this project. See if you are like me how many times have you allowed fear to hold you back. I can’t tell you how many opportunities and situations that could have had me further then I am right now that I did not seize because of fear. Fear of rejection, criticism, and not being good enough.
What I have come to know for sure is that their will always be uncertainty. There will always be critics. As my pastor says “the by-product of success is critics”. But there is also the blessing and joy of not allowing fear to stop you and allow the fear of criticism stop you. And I would not be getting the emails and messages over social media how this message is helping those that have read it and will read it. See the world needs people like you and me that will look fear and the face and in the midst of it still share our gift with the world.
I want to encourage you and tell you give yourself permission to face what you have been running from. Its time to give yourself permission to be great. Stop waiting on others to affirm you or tell you that is okay. Because some wont because they fear if you ever realize who you are they wont be necessary. Trust and believe in the greatness down on the inside of you and take the leap. When you access the power within you will surely see that you are stronger than you think and have more to give than you thought.
