Crutch Easily Constructed…….

What is yours? You probably used it this morning, this week-just to get by. What is that one thing that makes you feel all warm and tingly inside, partially because it’s ours only, our secret, but even more so, because we know it is wrong for us, our lives, and our families. What is your crutch. While up this morning waaaaaaaay before anyone should be awake, without turning on a light or making much noise, I snuck into the kitchen-where my “sugar” and I usually meet and………

Most of us have more than one crutch, more than one thing that helps us get along. Be it our husbands/boyfriends, negative girlfriends, eating, smoking, drinking, or something seemingly as innocent as sugar. I’ll be honest with you, in the season of resolutions and new beginnings, I am examining my own crutches and before January 1, determining to remove them from my life. Anything you must sneak and do……… you can finish this sentence.

But it wouldn’t be me if I didn’t relate this to my ultimate passion- business. Sometimes we wonder what that thing is that holds us back, that keeps us from reaching our ultimate potential. Each year we resolve to move forward to finally step out of the box we’ve created for ourselves. Each year, we fall back on that comfortable “support“. I have been guilty of this and have been in a position many times where I’ve chosen the easier route, but more likely than not, I move forward, down another path, without a single person holding my hand. What advice I can offer is that, moving forward without that crutch, without boundaries, resolving to keep trying at whatever that goal is, ignoring negativity, naysayer’s, loosing weight, leaving “him” alone, starting your business, excelling in your business, figuring out how to get to church without an excuse……..just as your crutch was constructed, it can be also be destroyed.
