You may know someone that has started a new business, but currently has little or no customers or prospects. You should know that it is not the end of the world for you. It may feel like it but it's not.
What you needs to do is pay close attention to "real" actions and concentrate on learning to provide a service to other people that they want. (Note the emphasis is on what "they" want.)
Paying bills with rubber checks isn't an act of faith. It's desperate gambling. I know from hard experience that it's nearly impossible to get the right mindset for real faith or confidence when you're circling the drain.
Your need to get your feet firmly under youself with real money -- even if your have to do small things or odd jobs for the extra income for a bit. Honest, it's no disgrace (unless you stay there).
Remember that all faith needs feet. If you're in an airplane on its way down in a power dive, you put on your parachute first. And THEN you do affirmations.
The old biblical phrase "faith without works is dead" means just that - belief needs to be connected organically with action. Productive action. If it's not, then it's not true belief, it's only an attempt to con yourself.
Too many people hope that they can do affirmations or pray or ASSERT, and this will save them from having to make a decision and take action. But that's not the way it works. Action and affirmations must be bonded together as a single unit and support each other like two legs. Neither faith nor action can stand alone.
So you will want to understand that positive thinking is good (and absolutely necessary), but positive action is also an essential ingredient.
Simply sitting around is not going to work.
When You are willing to take action, with all the stops out, Your faith will bring the blessing breaks, the synchronicities, and the destined meetings with just the right people at the right times to help move you forward. But it's the action that anchors all that potentiality into reality. ACTION.
Otherwise, it's all vapor.
"Willing to take action with all the stops out" ... some folks call that enthusiasm, others call it commitment. But it sure boosts the octane.
You may think that your taking a detour on the way to your goals, but understand that this is not a "wrong turn." It's just another way of getting where you are going and doing Whatever it takes.
Just remember that you don't have to give up on your dreams and goals when some little thing comes along (or not so little). The goal is what's important, not every little step it takes to get there (as long as we remember to TAKE the steps).
I'd guess that the old gremlin of impatience has killed more dreams than any other single influence. It's so common to think, "If I'm not getting there RIGHT NOW, then that's it; I'll never make it."
It might help to think of your vision of your future as a very penetrating stare. It penetrates anything that may seem to block your path. As long as you keep seeing what's in your future, you won't become stalled by the stuff that crops up in front of you today.
This may all sound cliche', but it's true, every bit of it. And I learned it all the absolutely hardest way. I lived through it over and over and over and... Ihave to grind and continue to grind.
So if you want to grow you boundaries you have to put action to that dream. This is why faith needs feet!
Be Blessed Family!
