My mentor once told me that my greatest strength and greatest weakness are the same. When I heard that I thought, um…that makes no sense at all. But then she said, “It’s your mind.” GASP! < mind blown >
I am naturally very analytical and creative mentally. In a matter of seconds, I have thought out a million possible scenarios of how things may play out or a million ideas of how to implement something. It’s an amazing strength but if not kept in check, my so-called strength will have me writing to you all from a lovely, all-white padded room.
That is why my mind, specifically my mindset was something I needed to change (and still need to change depending on some days) in order to begin intentionally walking in my purpose.
You cannot bring your old, rusty, dusty mindset into this new journey of fulfilling your purpose.
Your mindset MUST change. It is not an option.
Your mind has to be open and pliable to the way your purpose may be fulfilled because guess what? 9 times out of 10 it’s not going to happen the way you think it will.
When I was younger I used to say I’m very good at telling people what to do. As I got older and more mature in who I am, it changed to I really like helping people with their problems. Now I realize, it’s all of the above but really it’s teaching, or in other words, coaching people through….to. (See what I did there?)
Through those various stages, my mindset was changing. If I didn’t become more pliable to what my purpose could be, trust me when I say I would not be writing this blog today. Why? Because I never even wanted to write. It wasn’t on my radar AT ALL. I don’t journal, never kept a diary, I just wasn’t that girl. In MY mind, writing had absolutely nothing to do with my purpose. But through writing I’ve actually been fulfilling part of my purpose.
Through something I never even had a desire to do, God used that to help me fulfill my purpose.
If you’ve been feeling frustrated or even inadequate because your purpose isn’t coming along the way you thought it would, I want you to change your mindset. Be pliable. Realize that the way you may fulfill purpose may actually look nothing like what you thought.
Change your mind about how you think it should get done or how it will look.
Identify any negative and/or stubborn thought patterns you have that may be delaying your purpose.
Free your mind and the rest will follow!
