Faith or Fear?

Have you ever noticed the innocence of a young child when you ask them what they want to be when they grow up? They often say a fire fighter a police officer, a doctor, a pilot… careers they see as heroes in their eyes. Somewhere along the line as we grow up, we tend to lose that “hero mentality." However, the older you become, and as you move forward in your career, people that are on your team or that you supervise do in fact, need a hero. They look to you to be their guide and to help them through sticky situations.

We must continue to see ourselves as those heroes, just maybe not in the way we once did when we were younger.

However, often times fear, instead of faith, paralyzes us. Whether it’s faith in yourself, or faith as a religion, we let fear pull us down, rather than allowing our faith to bring us up.

Take inventory using these three simple questions:

1. Do you have faith in your team?

2. Do you have faith in yourself?

3. Do you have faith in your organization's strategic direction?

If you were not afraid what would you do next in your career, in your organization, and with your team, if you knew you wouldn’t fail?

Don’t let your aspirations be held back due to fear.

Think about how you can increase faith in yourself and your team in the week ahead.

How do you increase faith in yourself and others? When choosing faith over fear, try these three things:

1. Commit to 30 minutes of self development, quiet time and reading per day.

2. Surround yourself with people you aspire to work with or learn something from.

3. Write down your successes each week- your own or your team's- can be small so not just the monumental ones :-)

There are 3 kinds of people in this world: those that make things happen, those that watch things happen and those that wished certain things happened.

Which do you choose?
