Have you ever wondered why 2 people with the same background, same resources and same skills…
One might be struggling to get by…
While the other succeeds — and is ‘living the life of their dreams’?
These are the kinda thoughts I had all the time when I was still in full-time ministry.
Because I spent many years on the ‘struggling’ side.
Now, I LOVED what I did.
I wouldn’t trade those years for anything in the world.
But sometimes, it hurt.
Even though I knew I was doing God’s work…
It can be tough watching others “get ahead” in life by putting their dreams for God on hold, in favor of taking on a big-paying corporate job.
Or launching a business that has nothing to do with their faith.
Meanwhile myself and so many others in full-time ministry struggle to pay bills or save for retirement.
But the thing is, even once I stepped out of ministry and tried to start my own businesses…
I still struggled to get by or see any real results!
Well, because.. even though I felt like I was called to do MORE as a Kingdom Builder…
I never felt like I was worthy of the resources I needed to do that!
I was scared of earning anything more than my ministry salary.
Because I feared it would make me less aligned with God.
Before I discovered DSF, I tried a whole bunch of different things.
MLMs, Affiliate Marketing… you name it, I tried it!
And while I definitely wouldn’t recommend anyone try their luck with those methods…
(Because that’s just it — your success is entirely based on luck!)
The real reason I never made more than around $100 bucks with any of them…
Is because I was holding myself back!
Every time an opportunity to succeed would come along…
I’d find a reason why I couldn’t go through with it.
Sometimes that “reason” was something as simple as…
“I’m feeling pretty wiped out today. I’ll get to it tomorrow.”
The point is…
We self-sabotage ourselves ALL THE TIME!
And the truth is it happens to my students inside DSF too!
I see some students make 2 steps forward…
Only to find a way to take themselves another 2 steps backwards.
But the thing is…
You CAN do this!
There is nothing that separates you from anyone else in our community.
You’re smart, talented, and determined just like everyone else 🙂
It’s just a matter of getting past all that “head trash” as best you can…
And continuing to take little steps every single day.
You’re just as worthy of greater stewardship as anyone else.
In fact, given you’re a member of one of our communities…
I can only imagine you have amazing ideas of what you’d do with those extra resources!
And if that’s the case, there’s no reason to fear things like money, or “success”.
At the end of the day, it’s all just a tool to help us grow His kingdom.
As long as we remember that, there’s no reason why you can’t succeed, grow a strong biz, and live a life of freedom!
Ok, that’s all I have for you today.
Thank you so much for reading, I hope this was helpful!
Enjoy the rest of your day,
Your brother in Christ,
