I have been in this phase where I felt like a barrier was preventing me from launching into my next. I recognized that although other areas of my life are progressing, my professional development is stagnant.
I know that I am called to do more in the marketplace, but every time I get clarity on how to launch; I let fear cripple me.
I was chatting with a customer at work about her nonprofit entity. She said something that made me realize I was sleeping on my purpose in life. I know that I am called to do more in the marketplace, but every time I get clarity on how to launch; I let fear cripple me. I am discriminating against my purpose because I refuse to get out of the way.
The opportunities are on the table for me to be successful, but I just keep talking myself out of the next level. Now that I have recognized my created barriers, it’s time for me to break the glass ceiling.
Maybe you are in this same space. You see little progress in accessing your next because you are stuck in your now. We have to combat the barrier by first recognizing there is one and work on breaking through it.
As I was pondering on what to write, this dropped in my spirit, “Don’t sleep on your purpose.”
I believe this is what I have been doing and so many others - sleeping on our potential. We can see beyond our limits, see through them to where we should be, but this invisible barrier seems to stop us every time.
It could also be a spiritual glass ceiling. The glass ceiling is a term often used in corporate America. It’s a visible barrier that prevents you from attaining the success you see others around you achieving.
We have the gifts and talents, but we still haven’t arrived to our full potential, but if we are to reach God’s potential for our lives, we must realize that we all have “glass ceilings” in our lives, and that to move ahead of these they need to be shattered.
I believe God wants to do exceedingly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us. Ephesians 3:20.
God’s plans for us don’t have ceilings, but never the less these ceilings exist, not in God but in our minds.
Today, let’s level up to shattering the glass ceilings and stop sleeping on our purpose. We are created to bless the world so that God may be glorified through us.
