Have you been thinking about starting your weight loss journey, but aren’t sure whether or not you should give it a try? Do you fear not becoming a success and having to face the naysayers?
I completely understand. I’ve been there, several times as a matter of fact so I know exactly how it feels to go back and forth as you weigh the pros and the cons of your decision. Allow me to share my story and explain how Steve Harvey’s advice inspired me to Jump and start the blog, Focus. Implement. Triumph!
My husband, Melvin loves Steve Harvey. I mean really loves him. Like call him ‘Uncle Steve’ type love. If you’re in his barbershop at 3 PM, then you are watching the Steve Harvey Show. It’s on all three televisions so even if you’re like me and don’t watch the show, if you’re sitting in his shop you don’t have a choice…. You’re watching Steve for one hour. Period. On one particular day, I happened to stop at the barbershop for a quick visit and like clockwork, at 3:00 all of the TV’s were turned to the Steve Harvey Show. I was talking and not paying much attention until two women began to tell the story about how they made the jump to start an event planning business. To be honest, I didn’t pay much attention to their story. Even though it didn’t interest me at the time, for some strange reason the very fact that they made this jump resonated with me. Over the next few months, I couldn’t get the word ‘Jump’ out of my head. Each time the thought would enter my mind, I’d excuse it by saying that I didn’t have time to start a business working full time with a one year old. For months I battled with this simple thought… JUMP!
“You can achieve whatever you want, but don’t expect to get it if you are not ready to Jump” ~Steve Harvey
To my surprise, when I finally gave in and decided to make the jump to start my own business, it was Steve Harvey’s words that were the nudge I needed to believe in myself and my ability to make my dreams come true. It was also the insight that he shared within those pages that reminded me to have faith and keep going, even when I’m going through hell. Let me be honest, just like life isn’t easy, starting a business isn’t either. It’s hard work and it’s time consuming. If you’re like me and still working full time, it requires you to give up sleep. Lots of it actually, but it’s oh so worth it! For everything that you give up, you receive a blessing that is worth so much more. If you have dreams that have gone unfulfilled, then it’s time for you to change your situation and JUMP!
