MM&I Header

December 2, 2013 - Is your focus upon reaching your goals also accompanied with your faith that you will succeed? Or is your focus continuously interrupted by doubt, worry or fear of failing? The greatest asset that your ability to achieve what you desire can have is your confidence to believe that you can succeed against all odds.  With faith, you can replace doubt with determination, worry with will power, and fear with the fortitude to stay focused amidst challenges.


Take an MM&I Moment to shift any doubt-filled, worrisome, or fearful thinking into the empowered focus you need to move forward with faith on your side. List why you have doubt, why you are worried, or why you fear failure. Then next to each impediment you identified, list two or more things that excite you about the goal you are trying to achieve. What you will find is that when you regain your enthusiasm, you also regain your determination, will power and fortitude to better focus.  Allow your faith and belief to lead you forward, and you will be amazed at how far you will go.
