Why timing is so important?!

Hey friends! How are you doing?

Have you ever stop to think about the importance of TIMING?! I mean, I don’t know if you’ve ever struggled to find your rhythm to move in life, but I definitely have!

I spent too nuch time in my life feeling like I was running against the clock, always feeling like I was late in certain accomplishments in my life!

I went to college at 21 and, I remember feeling like I was too old to start a graduating course at that age! ( I know, this is tottaly insane!)

After a few years working in jobs that I felt frustrated with, because I never felt like I was doing something great, something where I could use all my potencial!

So I decided to quit the university I was working for, and try to figure out what to do with my life.

At that point, I was not secure about what I would do next but, I was pretty sure that I did not want to keep living the same way!

I always  knew that I wanted to do  greater things, one of my dreams has  always been to travel around  the world!

So I started to look for a opportunity to jump into a cultural exchange! After a few months looking in apps and sites for it, I found something better and different, but it would totally apply for my intentions!

I decided to attend in a YWAM school! It is a christian organization that provides opportunities to do volunteer work and also evangelism around the world, specially in vulnerable countries, for social help!

So I jumped in, I enroled  for this 5 months course and, in the last 2 months, I went to Nepal for the practical phase!(Outreach)

I would never imagined how challenging and great that trip would be for me as a person! A had to admit that it was really hard sometimes, but I faced all my fears and limits in that experience!

After that I never saw myself in the same way again! I knew that I could never go back to my normal life and to “regular jobs”. I really wanted more, I wanted to be part of something greater!

Life is hard, you know that, but what I want you to know is that: If you want to accomplish greater things in life, you have to be open to face hard times: Your fears, faillures, people misunderstanding you,a lot of confflicts and even accusations!

It is not easy to follow our dreams!

Till these days I am learning that, if I want to go beyond that most people usually go, I need to do more, learn more and sometimes, fail hard!

It is not in our confort zone that we grow, we need to go further!

Anyway, I thought during most part of my life, that timing was a bi****. But in the end of the day, I discovered that if you want to build your way to an amazing future, you need find out your own timing!

It is not about following the same rules and strategies that everybody else are adopting! You need to figure out your own ways and rythm to do things!

Don’t feel frustrated, like I used to feel, when everybody around you are doing the same things, repeating the same “mantras”, running to the same goals when you are not!

You have your own path to follow; you just need to know to where do you want to go!

Timing can be a great key to your business, personal life and to achieve your dreams, that is true!

However, you don’t need to bound yourself in this pattern, just to follow what people says that is the “recipe for success”, find your own way to get there!

Be brave and corageous! Only those who persist untill they achieve their goals, will be the ones that people will start to follow and be inspired by!

Don’t be so worried about “what to do next”, just find the right reason to do something, your essence, to keep moving and folowing your dreams!

We are not created to be just another one in the multitude, we are created to live a unique life! Think about it!

Have a nice weekend friends, that is all for now! =)

Ticking away the moments that make up a dull day
Fritter and waste the hours in an offhand way.
Kicking around on a piece of ground in your home town
Waiting for someone or something to show you the way.
Tired of lying in the sunshine staying home to watch the rain.
You are young and life is long and there is time to kill today.
And then one day you find ten years have got behind you.
No one told you when to run, you missed the starting gun.” (Time- Pink Floyd)

What are you living for?!

Hello guys! How you doing?

These last weeks I have been thinking a lot about PURPOSE and what makes us keep walking to our goals, even in the bad days of our lives!

Do you have a clear PURPOSE? Have ever stop to think why are you waking up every day? This is a big question, but most of us spend our lives just neglecting it! I know for me.

I always hated that kind of interview job question: Where do you imagine yourself in 5 years?! Yeah, I used to(really) hate it! First of all, because I did not have a plan and even think about it was scary for me!

Second, because I used to think that was normal to live without a plan, without specific goals! I did not believe myelf enough to plan anything, cause I knew that I would not acomplish it! And that is sad.

The truth is that, most of us are just surviving! However, depending of the season of your life, this is a good thing, right?Cause we need to stay alive!

I spent a big time of my life just surviving, just trying to keep my head above the water, but eventually, I get tired of it!

“There is a right time for everything under the sky” that is what Solomon said and we can agree with that!

That means we can’t just live our lives surviving forever! There is a time for grow and frutify, that is the biblical truth!

So today I want to encourage you to think about that: If you don’t have a plan, if you never stop to think about your purpose on this earth, please start today to think about it, write it down! Hang on the wall!

You are not here by acident! Your life matters,and it should have a meaning! Sometimes we have no idea how important our lives are, for God, for those who love us and see us as a model and so, it should be important for us too!

I know that sometimes it’s really scary even the idea of dreaming about something, because we were hurted and disappointed! But, please, dare to dream again!

Make a list of what you want to achieve in the short and long time! You can begin with simple and achieveble tasks, don’t push yourself too hard if yu are not ready!

But don’t forget to write down and think about your BIG dreams! That thing you may think is impossible! I want to challenge you to believe in your dreams one more time!

Today I am living things that I thought it was impossible 2 years ago! I had no faith in me, in my ability to change or do things I would love to! But now I see how the love of God have changed me!

You can experience that too! A love that heals, that makes you go though the hard times and makes you stronger! It is POSSIBLE!

If you think about some characters of the bible, like Gideon, Moses or Jephtah, you will see that God loves to move through the unlikely! He loves to chose people that no one believes and make they great!

Why can not be you?!

Define your “WHY”. The purpose of your life! The “why” you are living for will be your fuel in the bad and darkest days!

Just put on armor on and go for it! Be confident of this: That He, who began a good work in you will carry it on the completion!

PELO QUE VOCÊ ACORDA TODOS OS DIAS?!

Ola pessoal! Como vai?

Nas últimas semanas, tenho pensado muito sobre PROPÓSITO e no que nos faz continuar caminhando em direção aos nossos objetivos, mesmo nos dias ruins e nublados da vida!

Você tem um objetivo claro? Já parou para pensar por que você está acordando todos os dias? Esta é uma grande questão, mas a maioria de nós passa a vida apenas negligenciando-a! Eu posso dizer por mim!

Eu sempre odiei esse tipo de pergunta típica de entrevista: Onde você se imagina daqui a 5 anos?! Sim, eu costumava (realmente) odiar! Primeiro de tudo, porque eu não tinha um plano e até pensar sobre isso era assustador para mim!

Segundo, porque eu pensava que era normal viver sem um plano, sem objetivos específicos! A verdade é que eu não acreditava em mim mesma o suficiente para planejar nada, porque sabia que não iria conseguir! E isso é triste.

Eis um fato: A maioria de nós está apenas sobrevivendo! No entanto, dependendo da estação da sua vida, isso é uma coisa boa né? Porque nós realmente precisamos permanecer vivos!

Passei uma boa parte da minha vida apenas sobrevivendo, tentando manter minha cabeça acima da água, mas, eventualmente, eu me cansei disso!

“Há um tempo certo para tudo o que está sob o céu”, foi o que disse Salomão e nós podemos concordar com isso!

Isso significa que não podemos simplesmente viver nossas vidas sobrevivendo para sempre! Há um tempo para crescer e frutificar, essa é a verdade bíblica!

Então hoje eu quero te encorajar a pensar sobre isso: Se você não tem um plano, se você nunca parou para pensar em seu propósito nesta terra, por favor, comece hoje a refletir, e escreva isso em algum lugar! Pendure na parede!

Você não está aqui por acidente! Sua vida é importante e deve ter um significado! Às vezes, não temos ideia de quão importante é a nossa vida, para Deus e para aqueles que nos amam e nos vêem como um modelo e, portanto, também deveria ser importante para nós!

Eu sei que às vezes é realmente assustador até a ideia de sonhar com algo, porque fomos magoados e decepcionados! Mas, por favor, ouse sonhar de novo!

Faça uma lista do que você deseja alcançar a curto e longo prazo! Você pode começar com tarefas simples e realizáveis, não se force demais se não estiver pronto! O importante é começar a se mover.

Mas não se esqueça de anotar e pensar nos seus GRANDES sonhos! Aquilo que você pode achar impossível! Eu quero desafiá-lo a acreditar em seus sonhos mais uma vez!

Hoje eu estou vivendo coisas que pensei que eram impossíveis há 2 anos atrás! Eu não tinha fé em mim, na minha capacidade de mudar ou fazer as coisas que eu adoro e tinha como um sonho distante! Mas agora vejo como o amor de Deus me mudou!

Você pode experimentar isso também! Um amor que cura, que faz você atravessar os tempos difíceis e o torna FORTE! É possível!

Se você pensar em alguns personagens da Bíblia, como Gideão, Moisés ou Jefté, verá que Deus gosta de trabalhar através dos improváveis!rs . Ele gosta de escolher pessoas que ninguém acredita e torná-las incríveis!

Por que não pode ser você?!

Defina o seu “PORQUÊ”. O propósito da sua vida! O “por quê” você está vivendo será o seu combustível nos dias mais ruins e mais sombrios!

Basta vestir a sua armadura e seguir em frente! Corra atrás do que você quer! E creia que Aquele que começou a boa obra é fiel para terminá-la!
