Passion into Action

Now that you have discovered your passion, written your mission statement, and developed ideas on what to do with your passion, it's time to devise a plan to make your dream reality by putting your passion into action. The first step in developing an action plan is to recognize the cages you put around yourself that hinder you from going after your passion and fulfilling the call of God on your life. Look at the list below and identify those cages that imprison you.

• Fear

• Insecurity

• Finances

• Responsibilities

• Past mistakes

• Perfectionism

If you identified with one or more of these cages, ask yourself the following question: Do you want to die without pursuing your God-given passion? I know I don't. I don't want to settle for anything other than the adventure God has for me.

I want to encourage you to break out of your cage and step into your God-given adventure by pursuing your passion. If you need help breaking out of your cage and into your calling, seek counseling from your pastor or a Christian counselor. Don't settle for anything less than the adventure God has for you. You will not regret it!
