If At First You Don't Succeed....by Edwina Frazier on 09/06/10
Yep! You got it, try try again! What have you just kicked to the curb because it just doesn't seem to be coming together for you? Yeah, I know you've been working on it a loooong time and if it was going to amount to anything you'd have some fruit by now. Ok, now that you've got that off your chest may I ask a question?
Are you dissappointed or relieved?
A sense of relief might suggest you weren't ready to take this project on. This might not be the season for it. But are you preparing yourself for the season? Don't put it on the back burner and forget about it thinking "One day, some day it will come to pass" That's just wishful thinking! Continue to stratagize and plan. Network and get your resources in order... delay does not mean denied!
On the other hand if you are disappointed and find yourself looking at your project with mournful eyes of what could have been, then perhaps it's not ready to be buried yet! Gather up the pieces of your dream (literally) and organize them in a file. What were you able to accomplish? Did you get your name registered? Start a website? Business cards or flyers? Establish a bank account? PayPal account? Did you run an ad or hire someone to do some work for you? Gather everything you've done and take it to a Small Business Consultant at your local SBC office (Google up the office in your area) Their services are free and they can offer advice that can help you get to the next level.
You weren't working on a businees?
This applies whether we're talking about business, ministry, relationships, finances, etc Get the ear of someone who can provide insight and wisdom and map out a new plan of action! Hey, I haven't heard any fat ladies singing... Have you?
Get in there and try it again. The best is yet to come!
