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?
