Are you familiar with the saying, you have to see it in order to believe it? Many are under the impression that in order for something to be true or to simply believe they must first see it. Why not try the opposite? Every year I choose a word or phrase that I will apply to my life for that year and the years to follow. This year it is: Believe. This little word can be extremely powerful and I have seen it work in not only my life but in the lives of many when it is applied.
Everyone has a purpose in this life. So, it is normal to wonder at times what exactly your purpose might be. Look back at your life so far, are there things you could have done differently? Perhaps there are things now that you know you must do but are afraid. This fear will surely keep you from succeeding and truly fulfilling your purpose. Instead of waking up each morning fearing what may happen make it a point to do something that you are afraid of doing. Push through the comfort zone and simply do it! Everyone has a comfort zone and it feels great to simply stay there but in order for you to push past the fear you must step over the line, push through the wall. That line and wall I refer to is the one that is keeping you from moving forward.
Consider a marathon runner. When they begin their long run, they are filled with energy and ready to do it! However, at mile 20 they may feel the resistance start to settle in. By mile 21 they are ready to give up and mile 22 seems like light years away. But instead of giving up, they push themselves with all their might with the little bit of energy they can muster up and break that wall, the wall of resistance, the wall of fear and doubt..the wall of the comfort zone. Soon, they pick up the pace and are once again empowered to move forward until they cross the finish line.
You too, can push through the wall of resistance in your life. No, you don’t have to run a marathon but you can or rather must find something that fears you and cross the line. Crossing the line will give you the empowerment to move forward and continue to challenge yourself. Then and only then will you find your true purpose and finally succeed in your life. You must Believe that you are capable of doing whatever it takes to push forward. Believing will give you the strength to do the impossible and then and only then will you see it! Yes, you must believe it before you can truly see it!
Tony Robbins says that success without meaning makes people miserable and this is so very true. All the money in the world, all the accolades in the world will mean absolutely nothing if it doesn’t fulfill you. This fulfillment occurs when you have a purpose in life and when you truly believe…it will happen and you will see it! Are you ready to do whatever it takes? Are you ready to push past the wall of resistance and cross over the comfort zone? Only YOU can make this choice! A change in your life will only happen when you decide and make the decision to change. Stop avoiding and simply DO IT!! You must Believe it to See it..it happens no other way.
