Picture this: You find yourself wanting more out of life. You either want a bigger house, better job, higher education or possibly want to start your own business. But the more you think about this dream, the more you start to worry. So what do you do when faced with this challenge? Downgrade the dream? Settle for where you are? Or face the challenge head on and go for it? If you’re like me, there have been times when self-doubt kept you from going after things you deserved. You have either convinced yourself that now is not the right time or just lacked the confidence to fight for your dream. Many of us allow fear to activate our decisions before we even attempt to try.

But there’s no room for fear if you’re living by faith. Change can be scary, but God didn’t create us to be average or to be stagnant. God created us to excel.

So what is holding you back from taking your leap of faith? Make a decision today to overcome that fear and commit to moving forward. Believe in yourself and in the life you want to create.

Here are some things that may help:

If you’re scared of taking a leap, write down what you’re afraid of.
Remove the power from the obstacles and put it God’s hands. Fears are usually formulated by self-doubt. Anything that has happened to cause this doubt is in the past, not who you are today and not how God sees you. Replace fear of the unknown with a sense of desire for what’s to come. Being in the unknown can be scary, but try to replace your fear with desire for the passion you are pursuing

If you feel that you don’t have what it takes, remember that God has already given you everything you need to be successful.
Remember that God put this dream inside you and will work with you until it comes to pass.

If you feel that the obstacle too big, break it down into manageable pieces.

Don’t try to handle everything all at once. Do something each day toward your goal. No one said that the leap had to be a big one. Sometimes leaps are just small enough to make a difference

If your past failures have you down, refocus your attention toward your successes instead.
What are some accomplishments that you’re most proud of? How did you get there? Direct your energy toward developing that character trait which leads to those successes.
