[vc_row padding_top=”0px” padding_bottom=”0px”][vc_column fade_animation_offset=”45px” width=”1/1″ id=”” class=”post-content” style=””][text_output]You must have heard it before, someone saying, “They stole my idea!” Someone has a great idea to do something like open a pastry shop and sell their food cooked with mother’s special recipe. They think about it and plan it in their mind, but they never do it. Of course, they have many reasons why they didn’t or couldn’t do it. The noise from discouraging thoughts and circumstances drown their ambition and they give up. Then…someone else does something exactly like their idea and they feel cheated.

Often times when we look at ourselves, there are so many reasons why we would never be able to achieve that goal. In addition, we have been trained since childhood to avoid failure and reach for success and its rewards. So no-one wants to fail, if we don’t want to fail, we don’t want to try. That idea will only get off the ground when conditions are PERFECT but how often does that happen?

Children are, for the most part, not bound by the limitations and fear that cripples adults. They cry when they feel sad no matter where they are. They also laugh and play regardless of who is watching. Our adult sensibilities and our respect for what is “normal and acceptable” cripple our innovation and make us fearful. If every inventor waited until everything was perfect, nothing would be invented.

The Merriam-Webster dictionary defines faith as, “Firm belief in something for which there is no proof.” What made Walt Disney persist after he was fired from the Kansas City Star because his editor felt he “lacked imagination and had no good ideas.” Frank Winfield Woolworth worked at a dry goods store. His boss did not allow him to wait on customers because Woolworth “didn’t have enough common sense to serve the customers.”

Somehow both of them took a “leap of faith” and founded companies that are now household names. All indications pointed to failure for them, so why did they persist? Our weaknesses can never be a reason not to try. When we don’t see the hope in ourselves, the answer is simply to latch on to a greater source of hope. We just need to be connected to a bigger dream.

Grasshoppers, can’t fly but they jump high not thinking about how they will land. We can also jump without fear. We fail because we fear and we don’t try because we fear that we will fail. The solution is to just ignore fear and take a leap of faith![/text_output][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row padding_top=”0px” padding_bottom=”0px”][vc_column fade_animation_offset=”45px” width=”1/1″][vc_raw_html]JTNDc3R5bGUlM0UlMEEuZW50cnktdGh1bWIlMjBpbWclMjAlN0IlMEElMjAlMjAlMjAlMjBtYXgtaGVpZ2h0JTNBJTIwNDAwcHglM0IlMEElN0QlMEElMEEucG9zdC1jb250ZW50JTIwJTdCJTBBJTIwJTIwJTIwJTIwdGV4dC1hbGlnbiUzQSUyMGp1c3RpZnklM0IlMEElMjAlMjAlMjAlMjB0ZXh0LWp1c3RpZnklM0ElMjBpbnRlci13b3JkJTNCJTBBJTdEJTBBJTNDJTJGc3R5bGUlM0U=[/vc_raw_html][/vc_column][/vc_row]
