Hello and welcome to a piece of peace, your weekly dose of motivation and inspiration. Today I would like to share on the topic ?Doubt vs. Faith?. Like many of you, I struggle with doubt. Sometimes the very idea of doing something dramatically outside your comfort zone brings so many feelings of uncertainty. Can I really do it? Am I good enough? What will people think about what I am doing? Are my parents going to be happy? The fact of the matter is Doubt kills more dreams than failure ever will. It is the number 1 cause of inactivity and unproductivity in us. Questioning your ability to perform any task means a lack of faith in who you are.
Many of us are waking up each day procrastinating on things we have promised ourselves we would do years ago. We continue to remain in the same unhappy situation because we do not have the courage to pursue our passion. Because doubt is something that affects your self-esteem, productivity and confidence, it may leave you feeling inadequate. Feelings of inadequacy tend to result in a general disinterest in the work you are currently doing and in turn have a long term damaging effect.
Can you endure your uncertainty until it shows you another way? Some stories don?t have a clear beginning, middle, and end. Life is about not knowing, having to change, taking the moment and making the best of it, without knowing what is going to happen next.
People may doubt what you say but they will always believe what you do. The way to overcome the negativity of doubt is to inject the positivity of Faith. Faith that there is a greater purpose for your life is the strongest vaccine to doubt. Doubt sees the obstacles, faith sees the way, doubt sees the darkest night, faith sees the day, doubt dreads to take a step, and faith soars high. Doubt questions, ?Who believes?? faith answers ?I?.
If you advance confidently in the direction of your dreams, and endeavor to live the life that you have imagined, you will meet with a success unexpected in common hours. Sometimes we look at other people?s success and decide what limit we feel they need to reach. Even if others give up on you, never give up on yourself. Faith gives you the strength, power and determination to thrive in impossible situations. There is no chance, no destiny, and no fate that can circumvent or hinder or control the firm resolve of a person with Faith.
Don?t sit around and hope good things happen. You need to make them happen. And remember to always be yourself, because everyone else is taken.
Much love, Peace Hyde.
