“Believe in yourself. You are braver than you think, more talented than you know, and capable of more than you imagine.” - Roy T. Bennett
The last blog’s theme focused on planting a seeds, making a commitment to nourishing them, and then being patient enough to grant adequate time to let them take root and grow.
It’s been two weeks. I have no desire to ask you to dig it up and see how far you’ve come, but I am curious…. How has the commitment itself come?
Are you still committed to that(or those) seed(s)? Or have they fallen by the wayside?
If its the latter, can you get excited?
Each failure is an opportunity to get curious. An opportunity to look at what isn’t working and how it might work better.
Ask yourself, what information is in that failure?
Was it a lack of desire?
What about a lack of faith?
Where in your life do you desire to be committed, but feel you can’t due to lack of faith in yourself, in your capabilities or in others? Or where might that commitment exist but be stymied by that lack of faith?
Lack of faith is a poison. No matter how much you nourish the “seed” of your business, relationship or habit, that poison eats away at the nutrients, stunting real potential growth.
Take a moment and think back to some your successes.
I’d venture they started off with a particular desire, no doubt mixed with some level of frustration and even a dash (or more) of failure. What about those successes that, initially, were huge failures? Was lack of faith present, then?
No matter what the scenario, time and again, when clients work towards goals, true success happens when faith seeps in.
Quite likely, once you first glimpsed success, once you tasted it, and once faith took hold, that’s when you started to soar.
Faith, it truly is a powerful tool.
This week, when you commit, when you water those seeds, can you pledge to having faith in yourself, being open and curious as to where that might take you? Though not a simple switch, it is a choice. You have the power to choose.
