When I made the commitment to write Turn Possibilities into Realities, I was clear about the name of my chapter “From Fear to Faith” as that is what it has taken to turn a possibility into a reality in business and life.

Leadership isn’t for the faint of heart.

It’s easy to let the disappointments, failures, or setbacks of yesterday cloud your today. 

Looking back at “what might have been” may have you think twice when trying something new or making the decision to follow your calling. 

I hear it all the time from potential clients.

It takes belief in yourself – and a dose of faith – to trust what you’re meant to do and brush aside the doubts that may creep in now and again.

On the journey, you never get to see the immediate and the horizon clearly when examining fear and faith.

Faith is “complete trust of confidence in someone or something”.

Once you make the commitment to move forward confidently all it takes is the next step and the next step to gain momentum and ultimately reach your destination.

Yet, it’s easy to get sidetracked and choose comfortable.

Or familiar.

I like both of them. ((After all, who wants messy AND unknown?!?))

The question is, will you choose to focus on fear or faith?

Because what you may find on the journey of courageous leadership is it never was about the destination anyway. 


The Upside Challenge of the week is to look at where and how you are making choices that keep you in the “comfortable” or “familiar” zone.

How can you choose to lead from faith and push your growth edges to go where you’ve never been before?

The world needs you and your brilliance.
