Making the leap from hope to faith

tight-rope-walkIf you want someone to act, give them hope.  That is the cornerstone of every effective marketing plan in existence.  Regardless of seller or buyer or product or idea, for us to act, we need to have sufficient hope that there will be an outcome that we want.

By definition, hope is the belief that something can be true or can happen.  It is possible.  It may not be probable but it is possible.

What we must realize is that we want that assurance before we invest ourselves. Before we do the work. Because some work is pretty daunting.

The greater the hope, the greater the chance will be that we will actually take the necessary steps and make the sacrifices.  There is a price for every promise after all.

There is more to the miracle of results though. Because hope without faith is not enough. Hope is different from faith. It’s subtle but important. It is in the combination we find the magic what makes the real difference.

When we have hope, we believe it can happen.  But when we have faith, we believe it will happen.  That’s true motivation.  It goes beyond the initial leap.  It is walking the tight-rope of life knowing you are going to make it through.

Hope can help us take the first step, but only with faith will we be able to keep walking.

I find that I’m not as careful with hope as I am with faith.  Hope is easy.  Faith takes work.  But faith is where the promise comes true.

Where do you need to take the leap and get on the tight-rope of faith? Are you ready to go from  “I can” to “I will”? Once you are, before you know it, you will say “I am.” Two of the most powerful words in our personal language arsenal. I am.

What I love about the process is that the more we do this, the easier it gets to really believe and have faith in what we can do – the difference we can make not just in our own lives but in the lives of others and ultimately in the world.

Ready to get started?

Live today like you want tomorrow to be. Have hope. Practice Faith.

Live well.
