Evolving - How bad do you want it?

IF you want to be great, you have to evolve.

To evolve is to change and adapt to what is occuring to you and around you. It's making a conscious decision to access who you are, what you're doing, and alter your current situation to grow into who you're called to be. As you grow, you'll begin to notice that many people will talk about you, put you down, criticize you, and confront you about how you've changed. Here's the thing, in order to become who you want to be, you first have to evolve.

Often times, we get upset that we're not where want to be in life, but in reality, we haven't evolved into who we need to be. What have you done conistently that you feel has put you where you want to be? Think long and hard, be honest. When you're evolving, you're going through a transfromation to grow into who you're called to be.

As you tranform, it will appear to be similiar to a spiritual awakening. You will have to come to terms with who you currently are and access where you want to be. You will have to get really honest with yourself about where you are life. The reality may be, you're not where you want to be. That's ok, most of us aren't. But once you analyze where you are and what you're currently doing to better yourself, you can begin to analyze how to be better.

Write down your game plan and pray over it long and hard. Once you have peace about, put it in place and work your butt off to get where you want to be. As you work toward your goal, you will begin to evolve. You will see whose really rocking with you and who isn't. You'll begin to prioritize your time, activities, and those around you, as you should. When you evolve, you have to be picky with your time and where you alott your energy.

As you evolve, you will have to shed some weight. The weight of what others think, people who leech, and those who don't align with what you're trying to do. When you're growing into who God called you to be and have a calling on your life, you can't allow everyone to go with you. Everyone isn't for you or doesn't serve the purpose you have. When you begin to evolve and continually evolve, it will become evident. 

Who you need and what you need, will fall into place. What is not for you or good for you, will cause you unease. Those are the things and people you need to rid yourselves of. 

As women (or men), we want you to know that you have the ability to be and do whatever you want to in life. It's up to you. The question is, how bad do you want it? No really, how bad do you want it? To be better or to really be a person of impact? Once you have the answer to that question, you'll know if you're ready to evolve.

Evolving is a process.  It's hard, challenging, will keep you up at night, have you restless but it should. When you are evolving, you're fighting to become a better you. You're fighting to step into who God called you to be. You're fighting against everything and everyone who said you couldn't.

Make the choice to evolve and stick with it, you've got this!
