Personal Blog by Rhonda Crowdis Hardisty


I consider myself an ambitious person and feel like I go after jobs and other opportunities when they are presented to me, but at the same time I do not always feel as if I am capable of performing on the expected level for all available situations. So, I look past those that seem to be out of my reach or for which I do not believe I am qualified. I drag my feet on others that sounded like a good idea at first, until fear set in and kept me from reaching my full potential.

I have told my oldest daughter that I wish I was one of those people who didn’t fear making a mistake. I have friends who jump right into things for which they may not be qualified or for which they have little information before starting the project. Sometimes this works out for them, but often it causes them pain. I think that is what stops me from doing the same.

I read where someone said, “do not be so afraid to try that you completely miss the opportunity before you.”

If it is fear that is keeping me from opportunities God is placing before me, then I must remember that God has not given me a spirit of fear, but of power and love and discipline (2 Tim. 1:7)

Today I am thankful for this reminder and for opportunities to grow!
