Are you feeling stuck in your business? Mel Robbins says that taking action is what you need to do.
Guess what, there are Proverbs that agree with her.
First of all, consider a Proverb that divides us into two groups. We can be lazy or diligent.
Proverbs 10:4 Lazy hands make for poverty, but diligent hands bring wealth.
Another way of saying lazy hands is slack hands. I have to confess that sometimes I feel paralyzed by uncertainty and I don’t do anything for fear of doing the wrong thing. According to this Proverb that is the opposite of diligence.
The answer is to take action. Do whatever you can do. That can include prayer, asking your mentor for advice, looking for answers in the Bible, looking for answers on the internet. Do the next thing; even if it turns out to be wrong. It may just lead your to the next thing; which may be right. Keep moving. You will get where you are going.
Don’t be like the lazy who don’t finish the job.
Proverbs 12:27 The lazy do not roast any game, but the diligent feed on the riches of the hunt.
Proverbs 26:13-15A sluggard says, “There’s a lion in the road, a fierce lion roaming the streets!”As a door turns on its hinges, so a sluggard turns on his bed. A sluggard buries his hand inthe dish; he is too lazy to bring it back to his mouth.
I am not afraid of _________________________________________________ (making phone calls, doing Facebook Live, etc.).
I know I am working toward perfection.
I am fearless when I make presentations.
I am a leader who inspires my team.
I am confident that the right people are being drawn to me through my actions.
Remember, that affirmations are to be worded in present tense, as if what we are working toward is already reality. The prayer is directed toward God. The affirmation is directed toward our brain and aligns our thinking with what is God’s will. That makes it important to base our prayers and affirmations on the Word of God.
