Level Up Your Life

Ladies! Let’s go! I’ve got something on my heart that I just needed to share. This week I was in my car driving and got stopped at a red light. The light eventually turned green, and I drove forward. The car beside me also wanted to go, but couldn’t. They didn’t have a green arrow. They started to drive after seeing me move, but then immediately stopped as I continued going.

In life, when you take action more people want to follow.

Now I stand by stopping at all red lights, but in a metaphorical sense, we can’t just sit at a red light all of our lives watching other cars pass by. We have to make the stoplight turn green. We have to create our own momentum. Life isn’t just going to fall in your lap. Your success, your happiness isn’t going to happen because you merely think about it — you need to take action.

I know we’ve all been there. We’re the ones sitting at a red light, seemingly watching everyone else make progress and excel. Maybe today you’re scrolling through Instagram seeing girls you know and don’t know getting pay raises, having a close relationship with Jesus, earning a big promotion, killing the diet and exercise game, or having the perfect relationship. And you’re just sitting there, wishing that was you. Hoping that your life was what you dreamed it could be.

Here’s my question… what’s stopping you?

This is a question I have to ask myself as well.

The answer? Well, it’s usually that I’m letting fear drive me instead of putting my actions into place. We need to take control of our lives. We need to turn the stoplight from red to green and start moving forward!

Is it going to be scary? HECK YES. But do you really think all those people that you’re looking at aren’t scared too? Of course, they are. They have their doubts and insecurities just like the rest of us. But you know what… they are more afraid of not chasing their dreams than they are afraid of failure.

Girls, we need to stop delaying the life we want. We have the power. We are in the driver’s seat. If you have a dream in your heart, it’s there for a reason. It’s not meant to be ignored.

So I’m sharing this message with you today as inspiration. Stop letting the cars pass you by. Create that energy. Create that momentum, and over the next week identify one aspect of your life that you want to change — and start working towards it. Give it all you’ve got.

An object in motion stays in motion. An object at rest stays at rest. Right now is when you restart your engine and get moving forward. No success in life was ever achieved without risk. The biggest growth we make comes out of being uncomfortable, and ultimately, we just have to ask ourselves one question: do you want to be stuck at a red light forever?

You got this, ladies! One foot in front of the other. Talk to you in a week 🙂
