Taking a Leap of Faith!
So many of us live in a state of fear; fear of the unknown, fear of failure & fear of change that we refusing, knowingly or unknowingly, to move forward in our life. This fear paralyzes us and even though our life isn’t what we want it to be, we continue onward without changing anything because we’re afraid. This is no way to live your life. Fear should never control your decisions, fear should never be listened to except in life and death situations. The truth about fear is that it’s based in the Ego, remember that the Ego wants all the attention in our life, so when you’re not paying attention to it, the Ego creates fear to be heard. The Ego can never be satisfied, it always wants more, to move beyond the Ego takes time and patience. You must strip away the noise and learn to listen to the small voice deep inside. This voice is what connects to God/universe and to everything and everyone. The difference with this voice is that it rarely shouts out. It waits quietly for you to listen to it. This voice is always there but to hear it takes time and learning how to discern it from the noise of the Ego.
One of the ways to move beyond fear and Ego is to take a leap of faith. I recently did this when I decided to take my life back from working in taxes the last 16 years and start my own travel company. These leaps of faith can be defining moments in our life and no matter how comfortable you are with your decision the fear of the unknown will always poke its head through. I know in my soul that whether this business is successful or not, I made the right decision to do this. We all fear failure but failure is part of life and without failing we can never truly soar. It’s what we do with the failure that matters. As long as we learn and grow it’s not truly a failure!
So taking a true leap of faith opens your heart and quiets the noise from the Ego. It connects you to your source and allows your connection to everything. I have discovered that since I chose to do this that I feel more like who I truly am. I see things opening up to me that never would have had a chance to be born. This is not an easy step for anyone but sometimes through these dramatic actions we can find ourselves again.
If you’re thinking about taking a leap of faith; take time, listen beyond the noise and find the comfort in your decision that come from connecting to your true source. I wish you well, I believe in you & if I can help, please let me know.
Till next time,
