To have a vision is one thing, to do something about it is another.

How do you begin? And… where?

Those questions have followed me around for a while now. As, I have been touting around a vision to start a faith based non-profit for about five years now. Five years is a long time. In that time, I’ve been overwhelmed on how to put into action the vision I have. What stops me most of the time is fear. Fear of the unknown, fear of failure, and fear of failing before I’ve even done anything. I have talked myself out of going in the direction of my dreams over and over. I have gone in the direction of other possible interests and pursuits (going towards real estate, event planning, I’ve thought about staging homes, outdoor guiding, maybe even becoming a personal shopper (under the direction of a friend’s recommendation, I tried my hand at consulting), and maybe even a freelance writer). Why? Because it’s easier. But, the outcome is always the same. I am not happy with the results. Because, I know the direction I ultimately want to go in and I’m avoiding it.

Sound familiar to anyone?
