What's up my friends!? Hopefully the month of May has been awesome to you! Make sure to check out previous blogs if you haven't already. Also, don't be shy about spreading the word about Full Potential Blog with friends and on social media. This month's blog is about taking a leap of faith and how taking a leap of faith will help you reach your Full Potential! Lets get started on taking another step closer to reaching your Full Potential!!!
Leap of Faith
One of the best quotes of all time is "The wealthiest place on the planet is the graveyard, because in the graveyard we will find inventions that we were never ever exposed to, ideas, dreams that never became a reality, hopes and aspirations that were never acted upon." - Les Brown
Why do you think this quote is true? It is true because most people in this world don't take a leap of faith to truly follow their dreams or go after their goals. People like to stay in their comfort zones and play it safe - it's part of how the human brain is wired. So, they go through life being average or remaining in their comfort zone. Don't get me wrong, people can be happy doing this but imagine if they made their dreams come true. It is easy for anyone to talk about what they want to do with their life and the type of lifestyle they hope for, but very few take action on it. Why do people not take action? Because they are scared to fail or that it will set them back in life. What if they pour their heart into their dream and don't make it? They are scared to not reach their dream so they never take a leap of faith to get them started on their dreams because of failure. Well, if they don't start and take that leap of faith, then they are already failing to reach their dreams. Back to the quote, that is why the grave yard is the wealthiest place on earth - because people die not chasing or making their dreams come true.
My questions to you guys is 'Why Not?' Why can't you reach your dreams and goals? Why not take that leap of faith? Do not just settle - go after what you want in life. Think about all the ideas and dreams people didn't get to share with the world because they stayed in their comfort zone. The people who have made it big have taken many leaps of faith and risk. To all the authors, movie stars, athletes, business owners, speakers and more, thank you guys for taking a leap of faith and sharing your amazing ideas with us.
Taking a leap of faith involves sacrifice, time, belief in oneself and discipline. You have to have faith in yourself and in your dream that things will be great and that things will be okay no matter what happens. Make things you want to happen, happen. Don't let social norms or comfort zones hold you back. Everyone can have an excuse of why they don't want to take that leap of faith, "I'm too old", "I'm too young", "I don't have time", "I don't have money", "I don't have the resources". Excuses are an easy way out of doing something that is scary or hard. If you don't have the money, make the money, if you don't have the time, you can still make time for it. The people who are successful don't make excuses and that is a big thing that separates them from everyone else. Take that leap of faith and go after what you want.
