I woke up this morning with George Michael from WAM! singing on the
radio and telling me that “You gotta have Faith” Our religious leaders and
coaches tell us that we have to have faith. I tell my clients all the time to
have faith. Often the word is used in religious terms and when someone is struggling with a problem they have no solution for. But, what is “Faith”? What does it really mean to have it?
Merriam/Webster defines Faith as:
1: allegiance to duty or a person : loyalty b (1): fidelity to one's promises
(2): sincerity of intentions
2 a (1): belief and trust in and loyalty to God (2) : belief in the traditional doctrines
of a religion b (1): firm belief in something for which there is no proof
(2) : complete trust
3: something that is believed especially with strong conviction; especially: a system of religious beliefs <the Protestant faith> — on faith: without question <took everything he said on faith>
It is #2 b(1) “Firm belief in something for which there is no proof” that I am talking about when I encourage my clients to have faith. There are many things in life that we cannot see. Some of them we cannot see because we don’t know what we are looking at. Success, Happiness and Prosperity for instance. If you have not really experienced much of any of these in your life you wouldn’t know how they felt, what they looked like or even where to look for them in yourself. Faith is radical trust. Trust in yourself, that you can accomplish your goals in life even if you
don’t know where to start in the moment. So, have faith in yourself and what you can accomplish. If you don’t know where to start or you get stuck along the way, ask questions, get a mentor, listen for the answers and trust that you will get the right ones and you will.
Martin Luther King Jr. once said: “Faith is taking the first step, even if you can’t see the whole staircase.”
