Dear Parents: A Letter To You In Faith
By Donovan Grant
In today’s adventure we’re going to share about the importance of faith.
Have you ever noticed who gets the most respect and the most satisfaction in life?
If you look closely you'll notice it's not the spectators, it's not the whiners and it's certainly not those who think that they have missed out on their chance to succeed.
Those who accomplish much in life have been men and women with the faith and desire to achieve. The people who recognise that faith is a basic right as well as a strong ally to have.
And because of that these people are willing to face up to and even test their comfort zones. They're willing to accept change and try things that have been a terror barrier to them before.
The women and men who reach the top in their area of work or play are the ones who act with faith. They stand firm under pressure and take risks the doubters would be too scared to dare.
So what do we mean by faith?
Faith is… "responding to a challenge in a way that others may see as brave, but is necessary to successfully handle the matter at hand."
This step of faith is not based on proof; faith is like an inner guidance system for any given situation.
It requires good awareness of your surroundings; it requires self-belief and shrewdness and faith also involves taking chances. And you know what… when you decide on which direction to take, faith prays that you take action assertively.
Now faith does not mean being careless, impolite or inconsiderate to others. We don’t want to adopt these characteristics at any time at all. Faith is just a zesty word that delightfully describes bravery.
And why is this? It’s because in today’s challenging times bravery and confidence need to be at the heart of any successful plan.
In fact Martin Luther King Jr said that “faith can give us courage to face the uncertainties of the future.”
Remember this- faith is not a legacy you inherit! You have to sense from deep inside that you already have the strength and resources you need to live a successful life.
Faith however is not easy as it will call for you to make tough decisions and move forward for what you believe in.
Let's be clear, we need to be unbending in topping up of faith. By assessing your personal growth and following through on your goals you are bringing clarity, energy and vitality to your body, your mind and your spirit.
So when will your magic moment come and how will it appear?
Do you think it's going to come without a real act of desire, commitment and faith?
And how will you show your faith in your performance today?
Your challenge for today is to act with faith in every possible opportunity. Stand tall, wear a smile and act with complete belief and expect that things will go your way. Whether you’re talking on the phone, in a meeting or giving a presentation share your purpose and ideas with faith and certainty.
When you act with faith over and over again, you will far outshine others who do not. The power of your faith will help you to forge ahead today and everyday beyond what you have previously thought was possible.
In your efforts to be successful in life… always remember that life is a journey, you are the driver and whatever situation comes your way, you have the choice what meaning you give to it.
Let’s live with faith every day!!
