There is a reason that you have made it this far in life. You realize that in all the stories thus far this week. You would not be on the set with all those cameras if you had not taken some sort of action to get that far. You see, we only take action based on the amount of belief we have.
This is why I never suggest to anyone that they can reach that RockStar dream in one week. Instead, I want to get them to believe in themselves for just the next few steps. The reason why so many people are not taking the biggest steps of action is they do not have a belief that big yet.
You see, if you did not believe that you could make a million dollars, you would not take the action needed to get it. You would take action, but just enough to get to what you believe you are capable of.
I have mentioned so many times the faith or fear idea, the fact that you will sit on a chair because you have the faith it will hold you. If you have used that chair hundreds of times, well there is no longer faith needed to sit in it.
But let’s take the idea of acting on a business idea that could increase your profits by, say, 20%. You might be willing to act on faith and take a few extra steps to make that happen. But if I were to tell you: “Do this and it will give you an increase of 80% profit,” if you have never seen that big of a jump in your profits, well you are probably not going to act because you won’t believe.
It is very hard to increase your faith to major amounts if you have never seen that kind of result. But once you have seen that kind of result in your life, well then you will have no problem believing that kind of increase can be done.
To get someone to take action, you need to build their faith a step at a time. Once a large step happens then the belief is there; until that time you will not take any kind of additional action.
We used the example of the director saying “Action,” and the idea that in front of that camera you were daydreaming and could not take action. We also related that to getting distracted and not taking action in your life. Well, to get that part in the first place, you had to have taken some sort of action at some time. Now you need to take the next step in action and see yourself playing the part.
Taking your action steps and building your faith one step at a time will get you to higher and higher leaps of faith, and once you see it happen, you get rock solid faith. You actually see what the Bible term “a mustard seed of faith” is like. It’s awesome, so won’t you join me in taking action? RockStar dreams are ahead for those who do.
