EP. 14: Finding Peace
Play • 24 min

We’ve all been there. We’ve made what we think are perfect plans just to have them seemingly dismantled. Or something unexpected happens, and it feels like life is turned upside down. Often in those times we have big questions and open answers. Today, let’s talk about finding peace in the midst of uncertainty.

Notes and Quotes: 

  • Sometimes we get very transactional with God “‘If I do it right, then I will be rewarded with this.’ But does God work that way? No.” 
  • When we get into tidal wave situations, no matter what they are, God helps us and comforts us. 
  • When you feel overwhelmed or let down, try this: stop, look back at the things God has done for you, recount them all, write them down. Sit with God and reflect on how faithful He has been to you. 
  • Find a tangible reminder to go and pray and express your trust in God to provide. He is faithful.
  • “When we have no control over anything, He has control.”
  • Spiritual amnesia: we forget that God is faithful.
  • “Remove and move any distractions that would distract me from Him.”
  • “Instead of worrying, I was anticipating . . . okay God, where are you going to land me?”

140: How to Focus When You are Multi-Passionate
Do you have multiple businesses or lots of business ideas? Are you struggling with figuring out how to focus when you are multi-passionate and enjoy many different types of endeavors? Have you ever gone on a trip and felt like there’s no way you could do all the activities you want to do in the time you’re there? This is similar to how we often feel as multi-passionate Christian women. We have so many ideas and so much we want to accomplish, and it can be really hard to narrow down and focus on one thing. In this episode, I want to walk you through a process that I’ve used for myself to learn how to focus even when you have lots of ideas and passions you could pursue. This will be especially helpful if you are an entrepreneur or if you have business ideas, as I’ll be focusing on this from a business angle. For the full show notes for this episode, go to estherlittlefield.com/episode140. 2 problems with trying to promote multiple businesses: * It’s very challenging to try and build or grow more than one business because it's hard for people to know who to refer to you. * We can spread ourselves too thin and end up being ineffective leaders. How to Focus When You are Multi-Passionate: * Step 1: List out all your ideas * Step 2: Become self-aware * Step 3: Put it all before God * Step 4: Ask yourself: what would you really love to do? * Step 5: Get input from trusted mentors or advisors * Step 6: Run your options through the ‘ideal business’ filter * Step 7: Decide and take action Action Step: Join the free Communicate & Connect Challenge. This challenge will help you to communicate effectively about what you do - your business or your passion project AND connect with the types of people who need to hear what you have to offer. We’ll work through this together so you feel confident when someone asks you what you do, have the words to create curiosity instead of confusion, and can keep the conversation going to lead people down the path of working with you!
