Many times we limit ourselves from achieving our full potential because we’re afraid of what the perception of this “new” us will be. We’re worried about others saying we’ve changed. Everyone wants to be “real” and having someone think we’re a hypocrite doesn’t exactly fit into that image.
When God is doing something new in you, the old has to fall away.
Sometimes that means old relationships, old friendships, old ideas, old mindsets, and old behaviors. One of the things that I’m learning is that just because I did something the same way for years and yearrrs, and it worked wonders for me in the past…does NOT mean that way of operating will work for me in 2018. As a matter of fact, for me, the way I did things last year, would not work at all for this year.
The way that I blog? Different.
The relationships I’m building? Different.
The type of clients I’m getting? Different.
God is doing something completely different in all of our lives.
The way to navigate this year successfully is by receiving His plans, His ways, His strategies and His ideas.
We’ll be successful in every pursuit, every venture and every relationship if we seek Him for the new.
Ask yourself these questions:
What old things did I bring into the new year?
What old strategy am I still trying to implement that just isn’t working this season?
What negative mindset is preventing me from being able to recognize the new thing that God is trying to do in me?
Don’t stunt your growth this year and become frustrated in your lack of progress all because you decided not to hit that reset button.
Do it! It’s time for something new.
