Faith helps dreams come true


imageFaith, the topic of today’s daily post, means something entirely different to me than the regular meaning of the word and is key to everything that I have achieved so far.

Normally, one would associate faith with the church. That was not the first meaning that came to my mind when I saw this challenge. 

Faith is Mental Strength

To me, as an NLP coach, if you do not focus on yourself and have faith in what you can achieve, then you will never reach your true potential.

I did, however, come upon this thought by accident, as a result of a series of small goals that I set myself. just before the 2010 World championships I accidentally discovered NLP. That was a life changing moment in itself.

Faith is what you want it to be.

#10FactsAboutMeI had absolute faith I could lose my 4.5 stone and become slim. I also had absolute faith that I could maintain that.

The next goal that needed personal faith was achieving an international game as a rugby referee. Had I not believed that I could overcome sexism, fitness problems, weight loss and change people’s preconceptions of female referees, I would not have got as far as I did.

I didn’t set out to start triathlon  with the goal of representing Great Britain, but once someone had planted the seed in my mind, I had full faith in myself that I would work as hard as I could to become fit. The award of a place on team GB was an added bonus. The focus was on myself, and the faith took care of itself.

Faith is unbridled self belief

My personal faith has enabled me to overcome a head injury, that took place 8 weeks before the world championships in 2011. It has enabled me to compete in the 2012 world championships despite having grave news about a serious knee injury just two weeks before the race.

I will continue to have faith that I can in fact achieve anything that I want to achieve, as long as I hold fast my faith in myself and the endless possibilities of what I can achieve.
