There are so many false perceptions about being successful in business that it isn’t even funny! People teach and believe some of the craziest things about success and creating impact on the masses. One being, if you rub elbows with the movers and shakers of your industry you will quickly see success. Or another one is if you act like someone else in the market place (going against your authentic self) you will excel because it worked for them it MUST work for you…WRONG again.
These are merely a few examples of the lies that are told about dominating in business. However, there’s one that tops them ALL! It is the belief that all you need to win is talent. This is so far from the truth! There are millions of talented people who will never reach their full potential in spite of how talented they are. I’m sure you may know a few or even have a few in your family that may come to mind.
Instead of spending more of our time on the lies, I want to share with you that the #1 necessity for ANY business to take off and impact lives is FAITH. Scripture says, it is the substance of things hope for and the evidence of things not seen (Heb 11:1). No matter what your personal beliefs are, you gotta believe in yourself and your ability to affect lives for the better with your gift!
Yes! The foundation is as simple as that. Everything else builds on a solid belief knowing that you will win and you have the capacity to overcome the unknown challenges that await. This by no means says you have to have all of the answers and know each step along the path (no one who has done anything great has done that). That’s just not how it works. But rather, it says that you are up for the curve balls that life has to offer and you will learn from each mistake to make you next step more sure.
Faith is the one thing that you must protect on the daily . The ‘world’ is full of faithless people, experiences, environments, etc. that it can become disheartening to keep your head up at times. I want to encourage you today to do just this. Keep ya head up! Stand tall. Speak life. Surround yourself with winners and never lose sight of what you KNOW you are to do.
I believe the best awaits you and I’m so honored to be on this journey with you,
