I struggle with my faith. No, I don’t go to church, but I do believe in God, that things are truly in his hands and everything happens for a reason. At 45 I made a decision that has changed my life – I became a licensed realtor and ultimately went into business for myself…you see, my dream has always been to be a CEO and I figured out that I wasn’t going to get there unless I went into business for myself!
As I have mentioned in earlier posts, the BOLD Laws are great and really keep me focused on what is important. The one that leapt from the page today is “Fear or Faith…You Choose” and it inspired this post. I have faith in my abilities, however, blind faith is a challenge I face everyday. One of my Facebook friends posted this and I felt it really spoke to me:
Sometimes God will ask you to do things that you’re afraid of. Just because you’re afraid doesn’t mean you’re not supposed to do it. You have to get out of your comfort zone and do it afraid. If you play it safe all your life, you’ll never reach your full potential. That’s what faith is all about.
My biggest challenge every day is overcoming my fear of failure, however, I am grateful and thankful every day that I am a part of a company which gives me the tools, training and opportunities to grow as well as family and friends who have blind faith in me that I can accomplish anything I set my mind to. How can I fail with all of this on my side. My goals for this year are big and I get up every morning and work through my affirmations, my gratitude and start my day in faith…how about you?
