Journaling the Journey: Entry 1

God is so good y’all!

When I just think about how true that statement is... it's overwhelming. I mean no matter the situation, you can always find something to praise and give God glory. Amen!

Today, I had the day off. And I spent it working on my new MSI (Multiple stream of income) I know for sure I want this to be a business. I've put a lot of work in already, and feel as though I have a solid foundation of knowledge. 

But what’s holding me back?

FEAR!

I'm afraid I'll fail. Especially, since running this particular business or establishing this MSI would require me to put myself out there. There being in the fore front. There being in the public's eyes. I mean what if this venture doesn't get received well. 

I've never been one to win popularity contest. I'm more of the you either like me or you don't type. I held the President, VP, or Treasury titles not the Homecoming Queen, if you catch my point. 

Now, as I'm writing this entry it's dawning on me: 

Everyone’s not going to like you. And that is okay. You can not make everyone happy.

In other words, the ones who do like you, support, and cheer in your corner, you know chose to be there. They are the ones who genuinely care for you. And that feeling (knowing people are in your corner because they want to be) beats winning a popularity contest and not knowing who truly cares. 

Realistically speaking, I'm only 21. If this whole new business venture doesn't work out as planned than at the very least I can say I tried. Better to fail forward than to never act. 

Being an entrepreneur is not for the faint at heart.

Lord give me the strength!

Amen,

Simone Danielle.
