Design Your Life Using The Power Of Faith | Start Living On Purpose

Some people’s perception of personal training is someone telling them exactly what to do. The old Chinese proverb, “Give a man a fish, and feed him for the day. Teach a man to fish, feed him for life,” is much more accurate. My philosophy is not to tell people exactly what to do, but to teach them to do it on their own. Strategies to health and business are useless without a purpose.

The Power of Faith

Faith is knowing something exists before it even forms. Imagine this: A vacant piece of land. When a successful person looks at the vacant land they see a skyscraper. Most people would look at that land and think that it’s just an empty field. Successful people can see something already done before it’s there because of strong belief that they can create something great.

Faith is a universal principle that extends for everyone. It’s is in our blood. Faith is looking at your goals and knowing they’re done before they really are. Don’t wait to accomplish your goals when you can accomplish them now. Through the power of faith, nothing is impossible.

It is scientifically proven that your brain cannot tell the difference between imagination and reality. When you constantly visualize the positive, you will see the positive in your daily life. Whatever you focus on is exactly what you’re going to feel.

Where will you be in five years? You don’t want to end up in an undesigned place when you could be designing your future before it even happens.

You have to challenge yourself to face actuality and forget reality by having faith to do so. Reality might feel like you’ll never be able to change, but actuality is that thousands of people have done it and will do it, so you can, too.

Face The Challenge

I can “walk through the valley with the shadows of death” because I can see that light. I have faith that the hard work that I put in every day will pay off for me. Often we go through life feeling victimized. We feel like life is against us, not for us. You are not a victim, you are a volunteer, and you choose the life that you want to live. You are a volunteer to the life conditions you face and your decisions. It’s how you use those conditions that determines how you live.

It’s hard to wake up in a beautiful state every morning when it feels like life is against us. How are we supposed to trust the process? Have faith that when you take the actions that align with your goals on a consistent basis, you will achieve long term goals. Trade your expectations for appreciation. Understanding the bigger picture allows for goals to be achieved above and beyond.

When you begin to believe that life happens for you, not to you, all of the stress and frustration is seen as a gift from the universe. All of our energy and time is here to create a life experience. Everything that happens is a blessing and an opportunity for you to get better and take the next step in your life.

Find The Joy

Finding joy and prosperity in the moment is a maximized quality of life. Enjoy the problems, failures, and process of improvement. If your happiness is predicated on whether or not you met an expectation, then you’ll ultimately be depressed. When you’re able to change your thinking and have faith, you will live life on your own terms and experience genuine success.

There is negativity in this life, and there will be weeds in your garden. The only way to rid your garden of the weeds is finding the purpose of why you want a beautiful garden in the first place. Harnessing that power allows you to rip the weeds out by the roots to ensure they don’t come back.

Try a different strategy. If continuing with the same strategies in your life, business or fitness leads to failure, the time is right to change directions. Open up your mind to absorb new strategies and allow yourself the complete gift of openness to lead you to where you want to be. Be honest with yourself, and start having faith.

So, do you see the skyscraper on that vacant piece of land now?
