How Not To Quit {this time}

Often when I think about planning for my future, coming up with a vision for my life or even setting a goal I tend to feel apprehensive and sometimes even down right afraid.

I know that might sound funny coming from a life coach, but it’s true.

It’s exciting to think about a new beginning and starting with a clean slate, but then that nagging little voice pops up, “What if you fail? What if you don’t follow through again? What if people think…”

All those insecurities crowd my thoughts and then the next thing you know I quit before ever getting started!

Can you relate? Does any of this sound familiar?

Last year I found a way to overcome this whole debacle of goal setting, follow through and not quitting. You really won’t believe how easy it is.


Yep! I simply chose to believe.

Believe what? That I will do better this time? That I will have more will power, that I will not be a quitter.

No not at all.

Instead, I told those nagging little voices of what ifs exactly what they were to me, a LIE!

I politely told the “what if” family they were no longer welcomed in my mind and they would have to take up residence elsewhere.

They were EVICTED!

Eagerly I opened up the door and welcomed the truth {God’s word} to move in and take up permanent residence in my mind.

Romans 12:2 is one of my favorite occupants. Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.

When I felt down in the dumps or could not see the outcome I would knock on truth’s door and simply choose to believe.

Because of my new thoughts I completed a gigantic goal, writing a book.

Sweet friend, I am inviting you today to simply choose to believe. Believe God’s beautiful truth for you. His promises for you. Believe my prayer for you.

Heavenly Father, I pray that everyone who reads this post will simply choose to believe and remain confident of this, that You who began a good work in them will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus. (Phil 1:6) I pray for your abundance to overflow in their lives. In Jesus name I pray. Amen.

What are your goals? What are your fears? Leave a comment; I would love to pray for you!

  1. I have suffered from the “what ifs” my entire life. I have started and quit too many things to count and with each one my sense of failure would pile up. I’m on the brink of “starting” something new (again) and I believe God directed me to your blog to get the encouragement that I need this time around. This time I will choose to BELIEVE that with his help I will carry this to completion this time! THANK YOU, Linda!

    • Hi Kim, I am standing in agreement with you through God’s word that you will complete it this time. So grateful we can connect here. You’ve got this! I believe in you. ((hugs))
