What am I feeling today?
I went to my networking meeting this morning, a little late because I slept in a bit, and it was ok.
Honestly, I sometimes feel isolated there or like I need to be more selfless and less prideful.
I feel like some of the people don’t like me. Granted at least one of them used to use me but, when we raised our prices, they dropped off (good).
I want to be liked.
I want to be needed by my piers.
I want them to see the value in what I offer.
I want to work with the right types of clients.
I want to take the leap and go after the targeted demographic that I feel is a good possibility (construction). But I’m afraid.
I’m afraid of failure, although I’ve been told time and again that it’s not about right/wrong, success/failure, it’s about learning, growing, and expanding.
I feel like I’m in a good place and that I am getting things together nicely. It’s time to take the leap.
And this time of year can be a good time to take that leap with the industry I’m targeting since they tend to work a bit less during the winter months.
I felt good just now saying a prayer.
The topic of Real Estate brokerages came to mind too. I may look into that.
But first I want to go after the construction industry, the trades industry.
Here are some groups I can focus on:
- Basement Finishing
- Tile & Stone
- General Contractors
I want to go after the top players in these niches though.
How do I find them?
Where do I start?
How can I trust in God?
I looked up “trust in God” on LDS.org and these scriptures stuck out:
3 aTrust in the Lord, and do good; so shalt thou dwell in the land, and verily thou shalt be fed.
4 Delight thyself also in the Lord; and he shall give thee the adesires of thine heart.
6 And he shall abring forth thy righteousness as the light, and thy judgment as the noonday.
7 Rest in the Lord, and wait apatiently for him: fret not thyself because of him who prospereth in his way, because of the man who bringeth wicked devices to pass.
19 And when I desire to rejoice, my heart groaneth because of my sins; nevertheless, I know in whom I haveatrusted.
22 He hath confounded mine aenemies, unto the causing of them to quake before me.
24 And by day have I waxed bold in mighty aprayer before him; yea, my voice have I sent up on high; and angels came down and ministered unto me.
13 And behold, he apreached the word unto your fathers, and a mighty change was also wrought in their hearts, and they humbled themselves and put their btrust in the true and cliving God. And behold, they were faithful until the dend; therefore they were saved.
I want to believe this.
I do believe this.
I don’t always know for sure HOW to put my trust in Him.
I feel it comes as I do His will: the little things like personal prayer, well thought out prayer, pondering, reading, studying, writing, asking for help in the moment of temptation, things like that.
All “simple” things, but by small and simple things are great things brought to pass.
6 Now ye may suppose that this is afoolishness in me; but behold I say unto you, that by bsmall and simple things are great things brought to pass; and small means in many instances doth confound the wise. (Alma 37:6)
I’m grateful for the time I made to study and write today.
I just need to take some steps in the dark and do the best I can.
There’s no rush. There’s no time-table.
I just need to go and do!
