I launched The Power Project vlog March 8, 2018 on International Women’s Day with the sole purpose of having a platform to spotlight women living a purpose filled life. I wanted other women to be inspired and know that they can do whatever they put their minds to. I had been working on launching the blog & podcast for 2 months.
I had never heard of Rachel Hollis until a friend told me about Girl Wash Your Face. She told me I had to check it out because the girl reminded her of me & the title is so relevant to my business. *The one where I tell people wash their faces.*
I started listening to the audible the day I ordered the book & had finished it by the time GWYF came in. I was so excited that someone else out there “got me”. She said all the things that roll around in my head. We have the exact same views on most of life. We were both raised Pentecostal. Neither of us have degrees but are still successful business owners, and we both want women to know that they were made for more!
And then, it happened. The fear crept in. The realization that someone else was already doing exactly what I was working towards terrified me. And, she was doing it on a massive scale! She beat me to it. Cue the self-doubt.
And so, the Podcast & blog we’re both put on hold. I wrote & recorded but couldn’t bring myself to publish because someone else had already done it better than I could ever imagine doing it.
How could I *compete* with Rachel?
And then, I realized, there was only one ME. I will praise Him because I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Only I can say what it is that HE wants me to say, and someone needs to hear what it is that I have to say.
There are more people in the world that need to be inspired and empowered than there are of us going out and sharing the message. The World needs More. More good. More empowerment. More inspiration. More purpose. More. Of. US.
So, whatever it is that you’re doubting yourself about, whomever you are comparing yourself with, whatever is holding you back.. SHUT IT DOWN! That is Satan's voice & that bastard is a liar!
You are fearfully and wonderfully made. Psalm 139:14.
You were Made for More!
