Our April conversation was about passion. Passion will ride waves as all areas of our life do, but when your passion wanes, most likely it is the result of waning faith.
This month I have a message for you. A message for all of us. It is time to give up our namby-pamby-self-deprecating-pathetic-I-can’t-do-it-I’m-not special-enough-everyone-else-is-better-than-me-who-am-I-to-succeed-that-grandly GARBAGE CONVERSATION. YES, it is TOTAL GARBAGE. Let’s throw out the trash right now.
How deeply do you believe in yourself? When you face challenges, obstacles, and outright N-Os in your life, do you give up believing in yourself? The passion in your heart has a purpose. It is your mission to go out and share your message. Community, generosity, health, joy, gratitude, love, encouragement….pay attention to what sparks your spirit because it is yours to share. At all costs, and in the face of setback you CAN succeed. With persistence you will. My dad is very fond of this saying “Keep on, keeping on!” I remember many times in my younger years (and some in recent years)when I was challenged and my dad would offer up that very quote, “Lisa, keep on, keeping on”. You MUST have persistence in your life. You MUST- have deep abiding belief in your dream and in yourself if you intend to persist in your life.
YOU HAVE SOMETHING IMPORTANT TO SHARE WITH THE WORLD!*and from the crowd….”preach it sista”.
Do you believe in yourself? Your message is valuable, and no one else can get it out into the world the way that you can.*and the crowd shouts “AMEN”!
How many times will you face walls, obstacles, rejections, and failures before you give up on yourself? HOW ABOUT, NEVER! *and the crowd goes wild
Your success is up to you. You have many victories waiting for you. Live them now. Everyday affirm your skills, talents, and radical belief in yourself. Everyday. Faith is a muscle that must be built through training and practice.
It takes effort and action to realize your dreams and the thing that actually spurs you to action is believing in yourself. KNOWING the results you desire are one step away, and when it doesn’t work out… it is only one step away, and again with another set back….only one step away. Don’t have it yet? It is only one step away…
Setbacks don’t matter because you KNOW you will succeed.
Above all else, you KNOW.
This knowing? YES! This is your faith. You don’t see it yet. No matter, be sure you believe it.
The stronger your belief…
the higher your expectation of results…
the deeper your experience of worthiness and value…
the faster your belief BECOMES.
And make no mistake. It is BECOMING. Even now in this moment, it is BECOMING.
Make up your mind. Believe it. See it. Believe it some more. Close your eyes and see it again. Believe it even bigger. Every setback is a learning experience. Don’t focus on it. Some missteps and redirection are needed to get you where you are going. Setbacks are necessary. Let me repeat. Necessary.
They give you the opportunity to believe. Deeply.
It is always your choice. Will you take on radical belief in yourself? You can start today.
Leave a comment below. What are doing this year to believe in yourself? How is your message going to be shared? New job. More money. Finding love. Dream home. Relocation. A healthy body. What will you declare as yours with radical belief in your ability to make it happen.
BELIEVE NOW! *and the crowd leaves comments below
This year, Lisa, I’m going for my gold. In all shapes and forms, I am going for the gold in my life. This is how I am dedicating myself and my power and my truth. I’m dreaming, and I’m DREAMING BIG BECAUSE I AM TAKING STEPS TOWARDS THIS DREAM. Action breathes life into dreams. Action moves your dreams from just being ‘potential’ to kinetic! I like what you say about not focusing on setbacks, perhaps what seems to appear as a set back now is really more like a life agility course. Maybe, since we keep track of our reps and records and progress in fitness, we should also start literally keeping note on all of these life exercises! I bet if you look at yourself, you can see how reps, response times, and overall conditioning have improved in terms of life agility. Let’s flex all the muscles we’ve got!
Yes! You are. I adore this, “Action breathes life into dreams”. BEAUTIFUL! Make it happen girl, you have SO much ability and talent. Keep being fired up by your dream. Take action every day. You are a gold medal girl!
oh..and, perhaps I should add that there is a 10 burpee penalty for every time you don’t believe in yourself;) on all agility courses;).
Ewwww. I certainly don’t want to have to do bur pees all the time. I’ll take believing in myself over those anyday.
Thanks for commenting girl, I love it!
