We’ve been discussing how to live a life of purpose by finding and focusing on your passion and discovering and stating your strengths. The next thing we need to cover has to do with all of those things (little or large) that get in our way and keep us from pursuing our passions even when we know our strengths.
Overcoming obstacles can seem daunting. The things that hold us back can vary:
3. fear of failure
5. emotional support
What has kept you from pursuing your dreams? For me, my obstacles have been a nice combination of all of the above but most specifically number four. Only when I finally found security in the knowledge that I am Christ’s child and how much I am loved did I have the courage to pursue my own.
