“We have purpose and destiny written over our lives by God. It is up to us to participate with Him by taking bold steps of action toward the vision, toward the idea.” – Zoro

“If people are willing to put in the work, that is what it takes to see their bold idea come to life.” – Zoro

Action steps:

  • Is the way that you speak to yourself holding you back from pursuing your BoldIdea? Try speaking words of love and of possibility instead. Changing your own narrative may be the first step to using your creative talents for Christ.
  • A vision that you cultivate as a young child is just as valid as one you cultivate as an adult. If you’re stuck, uninspired, don’t know where your next step is, think back to what God placed on your heart as a child.
  • Life is not without challenges, but it is without limits. Does your belief system allow you to believe this?
