“Search for it like silver, and hunt for it like hidden treasures, then you will understand.” Proverbs 2:4-5
The above scripture started a workbook on a study that soaks in the scripture of James. When I read those words earlier this week, I was surprised but then again not.
I’d read the same scripture exactly one week prior as the reading for a group gathering. And in that gathering I’d written to be persistent in seeking His treasure, His wisdom.
And just weeks before, I’d chosen a word for the year-PERSEVERANCE.
Honestly at the time when I chose the word I’d defined it as persevering in the places I wanted to grow in-my writing, my photography, my coaching business, for example.
And in those places of growth were multiple tasks of how to get myself BIGGER, more into the market place through social media and networking.
And hopefully creating new, valuable product as that is my favourite part.
But I left that goal as a possibility only because I felt I hadn’t reached the success level to create something new.
I didn’t think it wise to create more when I still had inventory of past collections.
And not wise as (getting real and honest here) having not collected the amount back of the investment I’d already made into all my current creations. So making money an arching goal seemed like a wise thing to do.
I joined an entrepreneur group to learn the multiple ways of marketing, made a binder of goals broken down into steps, vision boards, and daily, monthly, year success sheets to consistently “plan, do, review.”
I started listening to daily motivation videos.
But with all these items, just days in, my motivation began to slip away like water into a drain.
