I too had this same outlook on life, but now I have a greater appreciation for my gifts and I am ready to share them with the world. We all have a divine mission, but  it is up to us to tune in and fulfill it. To start off the New Year, we want to share how to embrace your gifts, and create the life you have always dreamed!

1. Hobbies Do Make Money:  

This word is undervalued in that people underestimate the potential of things you do for fun. What if you could somehow translate your thing into a service or product? Your craft, gift, and skill could be much needed innovation.

This world is changing every day and your imprint can be what drives the change in the future. If you are an artist, but your drawings remain in your sketch book, you may miss out on many opportunities Let me tell you, that there are some people sharing their gifts and making $200+/hr easy. If you bake, you could be the next CEO of a bakery or the author of a recipe book. What I am trying to say is, that it is okay for you to step outside the box and profit off something you enjoy doing in your spare time. You never know, it could turn into something bigger.

Sometime We Can Get in Our Own Way -Choose to Embrace Your Gifts

2. Many Businesses are Never Born Because of Fear: 

There are many reasons for why people choose not to pursue their dreams of entrepreneurship. However, the top reason remains to be fear. Fear of not achieving success or not receiving support. I read a blog the other day in which the author noted that when she first started blogging, she was afraid to share her work with her personal circle in fear of what they might think of her. I am not that blogger, but I can admit that I was also shy for the same reason. Some people fear the idea of an inconsistent paycheck. For these reasons and more, many great potential entrepreneurs never start their journey.

There is nothing wrong with fear that pushes you to your victory. The enemy is the fear that pulls you back. Click To Tweet

When so many cognitive obstacles are pushing against you, it becomes hard to find importance in your gift. As a result, one may choose not to invest the time defining and practicing their craft. There is nothing wrong with fear that pushes you to your victory. The enemy is the fear that pulls you back.  There is a popular quote on many home décor items that states, “Dance as if no one is watching.” Your confidence is the first tool to defeating the fear that pulls you back. In these situations, it’s okay to be selfish and embrace your gift for your own happiness. Whatever you do, do not limit yourself, take risks, and be okay with being uncomfortable.

3. Embrace Your Gifts and Make it Count: 

Believe in what you do and know why you do it. If you are serious about your gift you will work hard to make sure it is displayed at its best. My husband always tells me, “don’t be half stepping” to let me know that I need to put forth my best efforts.

As you prepare to share your gifts with the world, it is important to remember that YOU will be your biggest cheerleader. And then one day, you will create a tribe of supporters who also find your gift to be valuable. Do not be afraid to get out there and meet others in your niche. Create your own board of supporters. These can be people who have a similar gift as you, and can provide feedback and support when needed. Most importantly, find comfort in sharing your gift with others.

Embrace Your Gifts with Values

As I prepare to close, I want to ask you about the quality of life that you desire. Are you okay where you are now? Are you living up to your potential? If not, are you ready to make a change? I hope that you are but if not, I understand that it may take some time to process the changes that you need to go through. A change that I cannot promise will be easy but one that will have a beautiful and rewarding end. In 2018, I wish you the very best and I hope that you attain and exceed all of your goals.

  1. Thank you for this, Amandela. It was exactly what I needed to read first thing this morning on the first day of a beautiful new year. It’s rough lately trying to staying focused on my dreams and not letting them go as small obstacle after small obstacle keeps pushing me down. Time to push forward! Happy New Year to you and your family!

    1. Happy New Year to you too! This year will not be easy because you will be determined to push harder than you ever have. That’s what happens when you believe. Then before you know it you will be right where you wanted to be…right where you deserved to be. Best wishes this year my friend!

  2. These are all great thoughts. If you don’t believe in you, how can you expect others too. A great confidence boost for going into the New Year. Thanks

  3. Beautiful! So well-said. My favorite is #1, I think in part because I’ve discovered that over the years. I have talents that people like and need and want, so why not put them out there and get paid to do something that God blessed me with?! Great thoughts here. #wanderingwednesday

  4. What an inspiring blog post. Thanks for that.
    I also follow my dream and have my own business from what used to be a hobby. I love helping other people with my products and blog to make their lives better. It IS rewarding like you said. And it is a shame when someone is not sharing their gift with the world out of fear.
    So thank you for your words 🙂

    1. That’s awesome! Yes, I am getting there. I keep verbally affirming that one day I will be a stay at home business mama. I just gotta stay focused! 🙂
