Is there room for Faith in your business? Well, if you haven’t asked yourself this question, you should. Do you honestly have “Faith” that your business will succeed? Well let’s start with the definition of Faith. Webster dictionary states that Faith is a firm belief in something for which there is no proof and something that is believed especially with strong conviction. The Holy Bible states that Faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen (Hebrews 11:1). Now back to the initial question. Is there room for Faith in your business? Absolutely, you really can’t have a successful business without faith. Many times we run into our business with one focus… the “payday”. We follow the steps given to us, rather right or wrong in hopes of that “payday”. Now, your “payday” may be a vacation for your family, it may be a physical check, it may be a desire to belong… either way whatever the “payday”.. we run toward it with blinders. Then that day comes along when everything that can go right doesn’t, and everything that can go wrong does. You are stuck in a position when you have to decide rather that “payday” is worth the trouble. You have to decide rather you are going to continue on this uncomfortable journey for a “payday” that you have never seen. That “payday” that you don’t even know exist. All of a sudden a need for faith has peaked in your business.

Faith is so important in business that Napoleon Hill dedicated Step 2 in Think and Grow Rich to Faith. Mr. Hill stated that, “Faith is the starting point of all accumulation of riches!” Once you decided to go into business, you basically made a decision to believe in something that did not yet exist. You had the Faith to push forward. Sometimes we are side tracked and we forget that our Faith can take us through any situation. Even Napoleon Hill points out that without Faith you have basically skipped a VERY important step in finding success in your business.

Now that you know Faith is necessary in order to have success in business, how much Faith do you have? In Matthew 17:20 Jesus stated, “if you have Faith the size of a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there’, and it will move; and nothing will be impossible to you.” Now that is powerful. Each day I wake up and begin my day knowing that my Faith will take me to the next step of success in my business. I’m reminded daily of the reasons why I’m building a business. Why I’m self-employed. Why I do not have to clock in to a boss each day. How am I reminded, you may ask.. Well, I have a list written out that states about 15 reasons why I am in business for myself. I add to it every time I cross an accomplishment off of it. All of the items listed are things that are “unseen”. Yet, as I cross items off I’m reminded that there was once a day when I could not see those items. If you find yourself getting stuck and not able to overcome an obstacle that makes it appear as though the things you are having Faith for are too hard to attain, simply write out a list, and hold on to your Faith. Remember without Faith you would not have made it this far, so hold on to your Faith to reach the top of the next mountain.

Keep Smiling,

As we start a new year we want to make sure to place ourselves into a position for success. There are a few things we can do to make sure that we are lined up for success this year.

1. Goal Setting

We need to write out the goals that we wish to accomplish this year. Make sure to write them down and place them in a place that you can look at them every day. Now this list doesn’t have to include the steps to reach the goals, simply the goals themselves. For example: I want to make $X.XX in my business each month. I will take my family on Vacation this year. I will pay off my car this year. I will pay of the house this year. I will receive 10 leads minimum per day. I can not express how important it is to write this information down.

2. Letting Go of Bad Habits

We need to evaluate ourselves. Think about the tings you did last year that did not bring you to the next level of success. Think about the things that absolutely hindered your progress. We need to let these things go. We need to make a conscious decision that we are not going to allow these things to get in the way of our success this year. Some of us may need to let go of some people. Some of us may need to turn off the T.V., or as one of my mentors calls it A.I.R. the Automatic Income Reducer. Some of us may need to decide to work hard now so that you can play hard later. Take the time to write these things down. Look over this list about once a week to gauge how well you are letting go of bad habits.

3. Fill Your Mind with Food For Success

In order to stay in a success oriented mind set we must fill our minds with Food For Success. I have accomplished this task by reading books that fill my mind with thoughts of success, and the realization that I can accomplish anything I put my mind toward. A few great choices are:

How To Win Friends and Influence People, By: Dale Carnegie
The Greatest Secret in the World, By: Og Mandino
Eat That Frog, By: Brian Tracy
Think And Grow Rich, By: Napoleon Hill

Stay focused on your goals and let’s make this year the best one yet..

Keep Smiling,

Yet with the strength from God, I marched straight into the situation without boundaries. So, I figured […]
