When you were younger, did you believe in Santa Claus? Or the Easter Bunny? How about the Tooth Fairy? Maybe you believed your dad was Superman, or another superhero, in disguise. Kids have the most beautiful ability to demonstrate complete and honest faith, with absolutely no need for proof.

Faith is not based on proof and it needs no evidence. But a lot of confusion and skepticism swirls around out there about the true nature of “faith.” Generally, faith is seen as some kind of “religious” thing. But truthfully, it’s simply having confidence – or placing trust – in something. And we were all born with this gift of faith.

Faith allowed you to believe in Santa as a kid. And, as adults, faith actually changes our behavior and can set you up for outrageous success. And – believe it or not – without faith, success will be impossible!

Some people just sit around waiting, for proof or evidence they will succeed or something will work, instead of actually getting up, making a decision and taking action. The opposite of faith is fear… or even procrastination, usually based in fear.

When you’re ready to start a business, or experience a hiccup somewhere along your business journey, it comes down to just one decision: Will you tap-in to your faith and move forward, or will you choose fear and procrastination?

If you struggle with fear and procrastination, it means you lack faith! But with these two simple steps, you now have help CHOOSING faith:

  1. Celebrate your small accomplishments! These little sprouts contain the potential to grow into an abundant crop. But those sprouts must be nurtured, watered and protected! In times when you’re down or need an extra push, these sprouts serve as reminders of exactly how far you HAVE come… you may not be where you want to be, you’re not where you were! They provide PROOF of what is ahead!
  2. Use the success of others to encourage you. Read testimonials or stories from people who have been where you are… and pushed through to success. If THEY can do it, it means YOU can do it, too! This not only builds faith in yourself, but also faith in what you’re doing.

It’s time to make your choice! Fear or faith? Which will you pick? Tell me which one YOU picked below! What does “faith” look like in your life? I can’t wait to read your answers!
