What Motivates Your Decisions Each Day? Fear or Faith?

Fear or Faith, What Motivates YouDo You Make Business Decisions Based on Fear or Faith?

Do you believe you can have fear and faith in the same moment?  Hmmm.. 🙄   I never thought about these things when I was working at a job.  I learned to ponder on this question once I became an entrepreneur and a home based network marketing business owner.

As An Employee, I Made Decisions Based On Fear

Is it possible that I was making all of my life’s decisions based on fear when I was depending on an employer to live? Yes, I can tell you today, I was!  I wanted more freedom, and I wanted to make more money, however, I had no clue how to accomplish that! 😯  It wasn’t until my heart yearned to spend more time with my 8 year old son, that I turned to “faith” to venture into the entrepreneurial world and learned things no one ever taught me before!

As An Entrepreneur, I Saw Things Differently

Once my eyes were opened, I realized I had no idea of how everything really worked in the world, especially when it came to the new rules of money! 😯 Learning to become an independent home based business owner was a decision I had made based on faith and a huge desire to be home with my son and to have freedom!

Decisions Based On Faith Cause You To Grow

As I studied personal growth and successful people, I found that they made all of their decisions on faith and never on fear.  This is one of the foundational differences between an employee and an entrepreneur.  Decisions made with fear do not help us grow, while decisions made with faith always encourage growth and subsequently allow us to develop new skills.  Once we develop new skills, we become more competent.  Once we become more competent,  we increase our self-esteem.  With more self-esteem, the next big decision will be made with more faith as our competency level will increase again.  The result is more self-confidence and a higher level of self esteem.  This cycle repeats over and over until one day we look up and we have become very competent, very skilled, and we have a very high level of self-esteem. 😀

When you live your life and make your decisions based on faith, you start to understand why Ralph Waldo Emerson said Once you make a decision, the universe conspires to make it happen”.  This is a crucial difference between really successful people and everyone else.

Here’s a video where I explain Fear or Faith?:

Albert Einstein said “There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle“. Do you agree with Einstein’s quote?  I would love to hear if you make your daily decisions on fear or faith?  What do you think would happen if you started making all of your decisions based on faith?  I’d love to hear your comments below.

    Hey Kellie,
    Once I realized how this affected my life, I was not a very good employee cause lots of times I did not allow fear-based actions to scare me. The owners weren’t happy when I stuck to my beliefs of integrity and honesty. Hmmmm, probably why I’m not there anymore! LOL

    Making decision based on faith have moved me along my path and opened many doors. It was up to me to understand the options these held.

    Great thoughts on standing in your faith-based decisions,
    Val 😉

    Aloha Val,

    Oh, you were so smart and yes, it is probably why you aren’t there anymore. How wonderful! Congratulations on having the courage to move forward on your dreams and I know doors have opened up for you. Very cool!

    People are becoming more aware today and will be moved in the direction of faith.

    Thank you for your comments,

    Hi Kellie,

    Many of us hear the little voices of fear when making decisions. We must train ourselves to make faith-based decisions.

    Being silent helps to still the mind, allowing you to face, embrace and release the negative chatter and replace with positive thoughts.

    Thanks for sharing your insight and have a powerful day!

    Aloha Ryan,

    Yes, you’re so right Ryan. The little voices are in our head…the ego. The cool thing is once we are aware of the ego, the ego become weaker. Thank you for your comments.

    Kellie 🙂

    I honestly believe that basing your decision on any of the two could lead you astray. When based on fear one would assume that you’re making your decision under duress and that’s not always going to lead you to the right path.

    As to faith, the only thing I place faith in is my God, that the sun should rise in the morning and the knowledge that if I don’t listen to the wife when she’s talking to me it’s going to bit me in the ass later on. As far as business goes one should always try to base their decision on on the relative facts before them. It’s always a good idea to use the old hypothesis routine; ‘If I do this then that should happen…’

    Once again Kellie, another amazing article! I would love to be able to answer that I live my life in faith, but to be honest, more of my decisions are based in fear. Some of the major life decisions I’ve made in faith, but as a whole, I make a lot more out of fear based on what I’ve experienced in the past than what might be possible now or in the future. Thanks for reminding me that I need to work on that! 🙂

    Much Love & Many Blessings,

    Aloha Karla,

    Awe, you are so sweet! I am so happy you are gaining insight from our posts. Believe me Karla, we all have been there and still I find my ego wanting me to get scared, however, I do my best to not let “her” (my ego) take over, and allow my “higher self” to make decisions based on faith. It’s a life long journey and why Jim Rohn says “Work Harder on Yourself Than You Do on Your Job/Career”.

    Thank you Karla! Aloha 🙂

    Great question, and sometimes both! I have been positively motivated by fear at times in my life, and now am more motivated by faith!

    It’s always worth doing a “check in” when we make decisions, though!

    Aloha Jackie!

    It’s always so wonderful to see your smiling face on our blog! Thank you for visiting today. I know what you mean with the fear thing. I have definitely done that too. I have made many errors in judgement though, because I get too emotionally involved when I am in fear. Like you, I have learned to travel on the “faith” road. I take a breath when making a big decision, like you said do a “check in”!

    Thank you very much my friend! Much love & aloha 🙂
