“You cannot fulfill God’s purposes for your life while focusing on your own plans.
If you want God to bless you and use you greatly, you must be willing to walk with a limp the rest of your life, because God uses weak people.”
― Rick Warren
The one thing I think is a constant in all the entrepreneurs that I have worked with, it’s that they believe they have to be super, super strong, capable, performance driven, etc. in order to succeed. This is not their natural propensity in many cases, so they set out to “prove” that they can do it.
This spawns the “false self” in a thousand packages, of people trying to make it happen on their own, their own way, their own strength.
It seems weird to think that we have to get in touch with our weaknesses to find the real strength it takes to get to the place we really want to go. And that place? Not success, not power, or influence…but purpose. And the purpose? To raise others up to become greater than I ever could.
If you can find that place, you will stop striving to reach your potential, and walk in the joy of your purpose. You don’t have to strive when you’re operating in your purpose.
