Hey everyone, this is Jason Owens for the renewable confidence podcast. This episode is called you need to start dreaming again. Thank you so much for joining me. I love running these shows. This whole podcast is about you developing greater confidence in yourself and in your business every day. And right now, the message that I want to give to you today is that setbacks are simply a part of life. I used to internalize failure so badly that any kind of failure that I had would keep me from trying again. It would keep me from having a positive outlook. It would keep me from a number of things. In fact, I realized that the way that I was internalizing failure, ah, was costing me a lot of my dreams. It was costing me that, that go out there and do it again. It was costing me the chance to dream a, another dream, dream, a bigger dream.
It was costing me really pretty much everything. I mean, it was with regards to my business goals, uh, the way that I internalized failure was the thing that was holding me back probably the most. So I just wanted to share with you that yeah, I’ve grown a ton in that area that Hey, listen, I have to be a lot more forgiving of myself. Whenever I have a, uh, I encounter a setback and whenever I work with some people, I would say, not all, but I would say I would say some, maybe even approaching half. Um, it’s normal. It’s very normal to internalize failure and Oh my gosh, this didn’t work out. There is something wrong with me. There is something wrong with my goods, my products, my services, my price point. There are some, I have created this failure. I cannot tell you how wrong that is.
And I can’t tell you how deep of a lie that is. A, I don’t know how many of you are, I don’t know where you guys are spiritually. Um, I don’t bring up this aspect a lot in most of my podcasts, but I will bring it up here. There are times when these things that we hear in our head that voice, that internal voice. There are times when that internal voice isn’t from you. There are times when that internal voice is from your enemy, meaning Satan, and that individual is putting some words in your head. You are agreeing with it. You are thinking that it’s your voice, you are running with it and you’re internalizing it and you’re believing it. And whenever you stop for a moment and catch yourself and realize, Hey, wait a minutes, that’s not true. The fact that I’m not good enough, that is not true.
Let me tell you very clearly that is a lie. You are not created and put on this earth to not be good enough. All right. You have all kinds of strengths, talents, skills, abilities that you are needed. I mean you are needed desperately. You are needed clearly and we can’t really get through this life without you and what you have to offer. I want you to let that sink in. We cannot get through this life without you and what you have to offer, so please, please, please, please start dreaming again. Do not allow a setback or a series of setbacks or a year of setbacks or even a decade of setbacks keep you from dreaming. Keep you from reaching out and pushing forward with an idea that you have. It may be a totally different idea than what you started out with. It may be the exact same idea that you want to go out and give another try.
Absolutely. Do it. We need you, so please keep trying. Okay guys, this has been a very, very short episode and I’m just, I just want to leave you with encouragement today because please keep dreaming again, please keep dreaming you are needed and Oh my word. Do not ever stop. And if you feel like stopping, drop me a line so that I can get you excited again. I would love to hear from you. So don’t keep, don’t, don’t stop everyone. Just keep pushing forward. Love you guys, and just keep at it. Take care and I’ll see you on another episode.
