To move forward with passion and conviction every business leader needs to have faith. No matter your spiritual orientation the belief and trust is essential to inspiring others who can and will follow you. An inspired leader is nothing without the ability to impart that inspiration to their staff, clients and vendors. Robert Russell offers this very practical list in how to foster and strengthen Faith within each of us.
I would suggest you post this somewhere you can glance at it daily to remind you of these important characteristics.
1.) Be expectant, confident and optimistic.
2.) Keep your enthusiasm strong: never allow yourself to be discouraged or depressed.
4.) Keep your ambition and aspirations high; cultivate patience and perseverance.
6.) Keep your consciousness expanding. Growing and moving to higher levels.
7.) Be positive in your thought, feeling and action.
8.) Accentuate the positive in every situation. Never allow yourself to dwell upon misery, sickness, operations, symptoms, reverses, misfortunes or bad luck.
9.) Never depreciate, criticize, minimize or speak disparagingly of yourself. Never dwell upon your mistakes. Think always of yourself as growing, expanding and becoming more efficient, resourceful and dynamic.
10.) Look for the good in everything and everybody. Refuse to recognize anything but good.
12.) Think in large sums. The more you expect, the more faith will bring you.
13.) Convince your mind that what you seek is already here, that it is yours now.
14.) Train your mind to think in terms of abundance; never allow it to dwell upon lack or limitation in any form.
15.) Stimulate your facilities and talents by increasing your demand upon them.
16.) When you meet trouble of any kind, refuse to be worried or disturbed by it. Know that you are bigger than any adverse thing that happens to you and have the power to overcome it.
17.) Meet every problem with the conviction that it is already solved. See it as an opportunity to prove God.
18.) Face every difficulty with courage, strength and fortitude; determined to turn it to good account.
19.) Know that you have the power to adjust anything, change anything, correct anything, overcome anything or subdue anything.
20.) Act always with the Truth; and never allow yourself to compromise with evil. If the Truth is to make you free, you must rely upon it. You must pass from belief to trust.
Practice makes perfect. And you don’t need to be perfect to have an impact.
