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.
