Faith – Foundations Of Success 17
Faith, perhaps, plays one of the most important roles in every area of our life. Faith is defined simply as trust and belief in things yet unseen. We therefore must have faith in anything regarding the future or our pursuits, our plans, and indeed who we desire to become. We have not yet seen our success, we have not yet experienced our potential, but we must believe that all things are possible for us. We must believe that we will arrive at a future point which we have not yet seen. Faith is thus the fuel that propels us on toward our end points, believing that some day what we work for will be ours.
What is it exactly that we have faith in?
Those who experience the greatest successes in life have faith in 3 things. You must have Faith in God, Faith in yourself, and Faith in a good idea.
Let’s break these down in reverse order.
Faith in a good idea:
Before you ever start down a path in life, you must first believe in the road you are taking. Believe in a good idea and trust that by going after a particular pursuit the end goal will be worth it. Many people don’t’ think this way, they simply go through life without actually thinking or considering what they are pursuing. But You, You will be successful, and thus you must believe in any and every idea which you pursue, before you begin your pursuit. Success takes faith and hope and trust.
Define for yourself a good idea. Why is it a good idea? What makes it a good idea, why is it worth pursing? What about it is worth the time, effort, and energy that you will invest in it?
These thoughts will form the basis of your faith and trust in the worthiness of any idea you pursue.
Faith in Yourself:
Success does not come to those who have no faith in themselves. It is only the strong who persist, but even the strong grow weary. Therefore, it is only the strong, who know they are pursing a worthwhile goal, and who believe that they, yes THEY! Are able to see that good idea through to its end who make it and experience success.
This is why it is so important that you start with the first Foundation of Success that we introduced, the foundation of your Right To Be Rich.
You’ve got to believe that it is your right and duty to accomplish all that you desire in life. And you’ve got to believe that you have limitless potential, that you can accomplish anything you commit yourself to, that you can learn any skill necessary, that anything you lack can be improved within you.
If you believe this, then you have faith in yourself. You known your ability and potential to succeed. You understand your own burning desire and you believe and trust that you will not give up until you’ve attained it, until you’ve developed the necessary skills to see it’s accomplishment.
The best place to put your faith within yourself is on your limitless potential. Sometimes we get hung up on the fact that we haven’t seen something done before that we are trying to do. And that can be disheartening and cause unbelief within us. But remember that history is being written, but it is also being written by people with imagination.
Faith in God:
There comes many times in life when we have a good idea which we pursue, and we believe firmly in our own ability, but we hit insurmountable odds We can only control a small aspect of ourselves and our mind.
Indeed, the mind is the only thing that we truly have dominion over. Our own thoughts. And we can push, and grow, and develop all we want within ourselves, but what about those circumstances which arise that are totally outside of our control? We hit obstacles that we really have no say over. We have no way to succeed unless something outside of ourselves changes our situation and circumstances.
This is where the Faith in God comes into play. Realize that there is a God who created you, who loves you, who made you for Great things, and indeed made you for Himself, and who put that limitless potential deep within you to achieve all things. When you understand that God is good, and that if you are for Him, He will be for you, you can begin to rely on Him as Provider. He is our strong tower and our shelter. When life gets to the point that we can no longer handle it, and the storm rages outside of our control which no amount of skill can help navigate, we realize that we are at the mercy of the universe. We are at the mercy of God. He controls all things, and if we seek His help we can trust that we will end up exactly where we ought too.
Develop a faith in God. Rely on Him, especially when relying on yourself has no effect. He has given us great ability, but even in that ability we are not able to control all things. In realizing that WE are not God, we then realize that He is. We learn where to put our faith and how to rely on Him to guide us through the storms. Our role is to work, to develop our skills, to listen, to plan, and to prepare, but it is His role to perfect us, to lead us, to shelter us when needed, and to allow our skills and work to have effect.
It is God who provides the miracle of life. It’s taken me a long time to realize this, out of all of the self development, personal growth, and self help I’ve applied myself to, I realize that it is for man to toil and it is for God to provide the life. When I solely rely on myself and my own strength, I hit walls that crush me. But when I learn to rely on the Lord for my strength when I am week, when I have no insight, when I need ideas, then I see there is provision and beauty in the struggle, and instead of being crushed, I am shepherded through the turmoil to a place of rest, growth, and understanding.
Think of a farmer on a new plot of ground. A man can till the soil with utmost care and perfection. He can remove all of the rocks in the field and plant his seed just right. He can water and tend the land as perfectly as possible, pulling the weeds and keeping the pests away. But can He cause the plant’s to grow? Or can he simply give them every opportunity to? Man has no control of the seasons, of the weather, of the growth. He must have faith that in doing his work, God will provide the miracle of life and cause his harvest to grow and thrive. The same is true in any pursuit.
Develop a faith in God and hold that He will provide. That if you are diligent on your ideas and if you learn all that you can to perfect your processes, God will see the right pursuits to their right ends and will provide the miracle of life.
Faith is the element that allows us to reach places we’ve never been, and see things we’ve never known. Faith is the hope for things yet unseen. Therefore, at the very core of improving our life, we must have faith that it is possible. But many of us stop short, or believe too small. If we can simply grasp the concept stated previously, that at the very core of improving our life we must believe it to be possible, then can’t we believe anything is possible? Isn’t any amount of improvement and progress possible for us? Are we somehow limited by the amount of uncharted territory we can cover? I tell you we are only limited by the paths we take and the choices we make. But no matter where you are in life, you still have a lifetime of choices to make. The only key is to set your sites and your well defined goals on exactly where you want to end up in life, on exactly what you want to make of your life, and then head in that direction at a consistent pace.
Then, along the way, monitor your progress in light of your ultimate desired destination, and adjust accordingly. Add the equipment you are missing but need for the journey, and why would you ever doubt your ability to see life change for you?
Therefore, if you have any amount of faith in your ability to change, you have all of the faith you need to see your dreams become reality. Now you just need the discipline.
It is important on your path to success to have faith in 3 things. Have faith in yourself for your ability to become more and to conquer. Have faith in your ideas that you deem worthy to pursue, for their ability to produce for you and deliver. And have Faith in God for the unknown, the uncontrollable, and the miracle of life given to your pursuits and ideas.
