I wonder why some find it so very hard to believe? to have faith?
Is it because you HOPED something would happen and it didn't - so now it's all about self-protecting? Maybe you've been hurt in the past? Maybe you like tangible things - proof? evidence? facts? Maybe it's easier to be a cynic than a dreamer? Safer to be 'practical' than to appear to be foolish by someone else's standards?
Maybe you're just scared... afraid of being disappointed?
Whatever the reason you simply don't dream anymore... maybe you were never taught to dream as a child? So you don't really know how.............
- What is FAITH? Defn: strong or unshakable belief in something, especially without proof or evidence.
- BELIEF/VE? Defn: to have confidence in the truth, the existence, or the reliability of something, although without absolute proof that one is right in doing so.
- What is FEAR? Defn: a distressing emotion aroused by impending danger, evil, pain, etc., whether the threat is real or imagined; the feeling or condition of being afraid.
Isn't it interesting that 'fear' shows up PRIOR to anything actually happening?
So okay, let's start with something simple: What did you want to be when you grew up?
When I was a kid, I wanted to be an archeologist & an oceanographer. I loved history and wanted to discover it firsthand. I wanted to explore. [and this was before Indiana Jones ;) ]
As a child, I was taught to BELIEVE I could do or be anything I wanted. I was taught POSSIBILITIES...
Were you? If you weren't, it's time. It's time to ALLOW yourself the freedom to be wrong, the freedom to make a mistake(s), the freedom to be disappointed without being devastated, the freedom to be courageous.
See, everyone has fears. Everyone feels afraid. The difference is when you CHOOSE to believe YOU and YOUR DREAM is bigger and more important than your fear. It means being afraid and making the choice to have faith ANYway. It means BEING courageous in spite of, in the face of fear.
Your dream - your vision - is worth a little faith. It is worth your belief in it. YOU are worth that.
What do you believe in now? Allow yourself to dream again. Allow yourself to believe in your dream - whatever it is - because if you can't believe in your dream, who else will? Make the one choice that requires no money, no investment whatsoever but is entirely FOR you.
- BELIEVE in You and Your Vision -Speak your own Truth.
Dare to have Faith in your Dream.
Believe. And don't apologize for making that choice.
THINK. WRITE. BELIEVE. ACT.
