Feeling Inadequate?

Have you ever been in a position where you felt inadequate? When you felt as if, even though everyone else thinks your the right person for the job, you question it? How come, in the times when everyone else sees it, we deny it the most? We question the very implications that prove we are it. We are the chosen ones for whatever task it may be.

Friends, I encourage you today to not be afraid to be different. In an instance like this, where others see your potential, it may be that you just aren’t ready to make a move. But ask yourself this question – how long must you wait before you take a step? How long will the door remain open before someone else walks in?

I don’t want you to act too quickly but let’s also remember not to drag our feet. You are good enough, you are smart enough and gosh darnit, people like you! Stop concerning yourself with all of the things that could go wrong, all of the things you may not like and all of the moments that may or may not happen. Focus on the abilities you’ve been given – the very ones that are making you stand out in the crowd.

Today isn’t just about the opportunities in our lives, it’s about what we’re going to do with those opportunities. Are we going to choose to ignore the signs, let our fears outweigh the possibilities or are we going to move forward and pray that where we’ve been led is where we are to be? Don’t be afraid if today isn’t your day but certainly don’t turn away the chance if it is. You never know if it will come again.
