In my last post, I talked about the self-sabotaging behavior of “The Nobody Syndrome.” Women are guilted into holding back. They allow themselves some measure of success – but not too much, because they don’t want to be accused of being arrogant, prideful, or self-serving.
Nobody with any impact.
THAT SERVES NO ONE!
The cure for The Nobody Syndrome is simply this:
Go for it.
Just do it.
Give yourself permission to stand out and be awesome.
Pursue your passions. Build your business. Be as successful as you can be. Rely on God, and bring glory to him through your success. Let HIM open or close the doors as HE sees fit.
Don’t close the doors for God. He doesn’t need your help with that.
And don’t listen to the nay-sayers, to the people who tell you it’s selfish to want more or it’s arrogant to desire success. (Truth be told, they’re usually jealous.)
Pursue your dreams with all your heart. Work as if working for the Lord. Hey, that’s biblical! 🙂
Don’t let anyone else determine the motives of your heart.
You are the only one (besides God) who knows if you’re doing things out of selfish ambition or a desire to serve.
Don’t let anyone else tell you you’re being selfish for wanting to use the gifts you’ve been given.
Don’t let anyone else determine your worth, your destiny, your purpose.
God has NOT called us to be wallflowers.
He told Joshua to “be strong and courageous.” He didn’t tell him to sit back and wait, and see if God decided to bless him. He told him to act. To be bold. To stand out.
I believe he wants each of us to do the same thing.
The Bible tells us very clearly that in everything we do, do it as if working for the Lord.
That INCLUDES in your business!!!
You need to give yourself permission to stand out and be awesome. Step into the greatness you were called to.
If you went about your business as if you were truly working for the Lord, would you do things in a half-baked way? Without excellence? Without doing your best? Of course not. You’d give it your all. You’d do everything you could to make it a smashing success.
Give yourself permission to be awesome. Get out of your own way. Stop the self-sabotage and put an end to The Nobody Syndrome.
