FAITH or SUCCESS – What came first ?

By Olivia Antonic

FAITH or SUCCESS – What came first ?

Many of us achieved success through persistence, hard work and pure faith.
The Oxford Dictionary says that “FAITH” is:
“COMPLETE TRUST OR CONFIDENCE”  &  ” FIRM BELIEF ESPECIALLY WITHOUT LOGICAL PROOF”
Faith or Belief is an INSTIGATOR and a CATALYST within the person bringing ‘dreams’ into reality.
On many occasions I set my sight on something without knowing how the result is going to come about.
But it did, it still does and I KNOW further success is inevitable for anyone with strong enough FAITH,providing there is unswerving persistence, particularly when there is nothing to show for the long hours, hard work, lack of finances, family/partner objections and series of other pressures.
It boils down to HOW STRONG THE FAITH IS,how strong the belief is, not necessarily one self – but the belief in  that it can be done.
Furthermore, let it not be assumed that one can day-dream and ‘firmly believe’ that they have the winning Lotto ticket.
The LAW of ATTRACTION demands ACTION !!!
Yes, we need to COMMIT & DO whatever it takes & is conducive towards our goal – and keep at it.
Yes, we will definitely encounter FAILURE and DISAPPOINTMENTS on the journey for they are an integral part of success… and…
Yes, WE WILL SEE OUR DREAMS COME TRUE if  WE GET UP THAT ‘ONE MORE TIME’, like in a boxing match, the winner is the person that gets up that ‘one more time’.
The faith is driving them on even though they look half dead.
The  wonderful thing about FAITH is that NOBODY CAN TAKE IT AWAY FROM US – unless we let it go
Then… that means…
that WE ARE SOLELY RESPONSIBLE FOR OUR SUCCESS, or lack of it…
“IF IT IS TO BE – IT IS UP TO ME” – Brian Tracy
Interesting concept…
To your continued success , JUST DO IT !!!

    Hi Olivia,

    Faith = action. I agree, if it’s too hard to have big faith or take big actions, we can start with a tiny faith and small actions first, be successful in that, and move to bigger and bigger action. Build up the confidence gradually and obtain results continually.
