Motivational Monday: Have Faith

For those who have been around awhile, you know that when I initially started blogging, I launched my blog as Speak on Faith. I chose the name because I knew this newest journey of entrepreneurship was going to lead to some bumpy roads, and going to force me to get uncomfortable in many ways that I hadn’t imagined before. But I realized one of the biggest things I needed faith around was my ability to speak publicly. I knew this one thing was going to stand in the way of achieving some of my lofty goals that I set for myself and my family.

For soooo many years, I struggled with a terrifying fear of public speaking (like, I’m talking about darn near panic attacks and anxiety around anything to do with me opening up my mouth in front of people to speak). I knew that I had to increase my faith and confidence in my abilities to get over this somewhat, kinda irrational fear. Once I started believing in myself and seeing myself in places of where I wanted to go, and help inspire others, I was able to call on my spiritual faith for that guidance on getting there.

And even though I ended up changing the name of my blog, the premise of it, the message of it has for the most part stayed the same: Speak on faith. Have faith and believe that whatever you want to do is possible. Have faith that if you stay focused on what you want, you can soon enough get it. Have faith that everything works out the way it’s supposed to. Have faith that what is for you, is for you and cannot be taken away from you. Have faith that you have the power to truly create the life that you want and deserve. Have faith that those kids will eventually let you use the bathroom in peace – ok, this one may take awhile. But you get the idea.

When I look back on what I’ve been able to accomplish in a short amount of time, I have to lend most of it to my increased faith in my own abilities, but most importantly, in the fact that I’ve finally learned what it means to have faith the size of a mustard seed.

What do you need to put more faith in this week?

    What’s funny is I use to love speaking in public then life happened and I haven’t spoke in public in over 5 years tried it this year and my stomach was in knots. I need to get my faith back and just do it. Great post!

      Oh wow Kita, that is interesting how that happened. Sometimes you just have to “do it afraid” and that’s honestly how I started. It took one small (big to me) step of getting up in a crowd to ask a question.

      It definitely can be tough Olivia, but you’re so right – what is yours will come to you if you just believe and keep working at it 🙂

    I can definitely relate. I used to be petrified to speak in public and scared to get on camera. I have definitely come a LONG and having faith in myself and the abilities that God blessed me with, were played huge roles in my journey.

    This is me! I have a love hate relationship with speaking in public. I want to get up there but when I do I am scared that I embarrass myself. My last job required me to do presentations at least once a week and that really helped me to build my confidence. It’s been about two years so I am in need of practice and building myself back up again.

      OMG girl, so you know exactly what I’m talking about. Funny enough, I had to do a lot of public speaking in my last job as well as part of the new hire process, so I guess it was somewhat preparing me for what I’m doing now. One thing that helped me was putting together my own live events cause then I didn’t have a choice lol

    It’s funny because whenever I tell my students that I’m shy by nature, they hardly ever believe me. Just like most people, I had to overcome my fear of public speaking and once I did, I realized that I’m at my best when I’m sharing and pouring into others publicly. Now I just need to work on having faith in this next chapter of my journey that requires me to get retailers to stock my new product! One day at a time…

    I LOVE this!!! I joined Toastmasters to work on my public speaking. I’m going to keep that in the forefront in my mind to “speak on faith.” I agree what’s for you is for you and you just have to speak it and believe it.
