I just celebrated my birthday. I have a lot to celebrate this year.
I posted my first blog as a contributor for a major website (I’ll get to that in a minute. You’ll want to keep reading though for the snack recipes!). I am getting ready to launch a major new health program that will help people transform their health and I finished a speech to the largest crowd i’ve ever spoken to so far.
You know, it wasn’t long ago that I was terrified to speak in front of a crowd. These days people find that hard to believe! That’s when I realize how far I’ve come. The truth is, back then, I feared I had nothing to offer. I thought success was meant for others. I have always been much more comfortable cheering for someone else’s success.
Over the years, I’ve come to understand that while fear whispers lies in our ears, faith also whispers in our ears. But faith whispers the truths that we are scared to believe about the same future that hasn’t happened yet. Don’t believe your fears. Choose Faith. When I did, everything started to shift for me and change for the better.
It always works out better when I set aside my fears and follow what I believe is God’s plan for me. Let me give you an example. This week my first blog was posted on IvankaTrump.com. I am so excited to be a regular contributor for this amazing website that understands the challenges that busy women face.
Here are a few pictures from the food photo shoot for the blog…
Looks delicious right? Wait till you taste them!
I hope all of you can benefit from my go-to healthy snacks I shared with her readers. For you moms, with kids starting a new school year, these are a great choice for after school.
My point is, if I had not decided to say ‘why not me? why not now?’, I might have made different choices that wouldn’t have ended in the same result.
Get more comfortable being uncomfortable. Listen to faith, not fear. You’ll be amazed at what opportunities will come your way.
