How to Have More Faith

th

Remember when you were younger and believed in Santa, the Easter Bunny and the Tooth Fairy? As children, we have the most amazing ability to have complete faith without needing proof.

Faith has nothing to do with proof. Faith needs no evidence, which only leads to confusion and skepticism. Faith to many seems like something for only the religious. However, faith simply defined is having confidence or placing trust in something.

Faith is something you are born with and it’s a precious gift.

Faith allowed you to believe in Santa as a child. As an adult, faith can change your behavior and set you up for extraordinary success. Quite frankly, without faith it is impossible to succeed!

This leads us to business and how you need to have faith in it in order to succeed.

Your success begins and ends with you! You must overcome your past failures, fears and obstacles and start adding to your success tool belt.

Many people sit around waiting for proof that they can do something, instead of actually getting up, making a decision and taking action.

Do you know what the opposite of faith is? FEAR!!! And along with that, procrastination. And that is usually based on fear.

When you are faced with starting or building your business, are you going to have faith and move forward, or will you choose procrastination and fear? The choice is yours.

Maybe you’re afraid to call people. Maybe you’re afraid you’ll sound like a stereo-typical slimy salesman. You have to have faith in yourself and squelch your fears to move forward in your business. Have faith and take that with you wherever you go. You will see results. If you don’t like the results you are seeing, then adjust what you’re doing and keep moving forward.

Faith is a choice! As Martin Luther King, Jr. said, “You don’t have to see the whole staircase, just take the first step.”

Two ways that can help you have more faith in yourself and in your business:

1. Celebrate your accomplishments! Yes, even the small ones! I look at everything I do as planting seeds. Hopefully, these seeds will one day become sprouts that have the potential to someday grow into a great crop. However, in order for that to happen, those seeds must be planted, the sprouts must be cared for.

2. Look toward other people’s success for motivation. Read testimonials or stories of people who have been where you are and pushed through it. If they can do it, it means you can do it, as well.

This will build faith in yourself and also faith in what you’re doing.

Don’t give up! Have faith!
