Success. With the economy tilting on its ear, companies closing their doors, and hundreds of thousands of men and women out there looking for work, success is a key concept in everyone’s mind. So what does it take to find to success? What’s out there waiting for you? And what’s standing between you and your ability to achieve?rnrnDwelling in a World of FaithrnrnIt was Bishop E. Bernard Jordan who perhaps best answered the question, “What does it take to succeed?” He explains that the true secret to success lies in our ability to live between a world of facts and a world of faith.rnrnWe all live among oceans of facts. Some things get done, some don’t. Some things are possible, some not. There is fact and then there is fiction. In the factual world there is only so much one can accomplish.rnrnThe other thing about living in a world of facts, that people find difficult to live with, is that society believes there is a set formula for everything. If you invest your money, you can watch the interest grow. If you go to college, you can get a high-paying job. If you spend enough years ruthlessly climbing the corporate ladder, you can find your way to the top-but you’re going to have to sacrifice for it.rnrnHow much are you willing to sacrifice for your success? When you’re walking in a world of faith, the question isn’t about sacrifice. It becomes how you can succeed while still enjoying the things in your life that matter most. Its about the priceless things in life like spending time with your family and having the opportunity to watch your kids grow up instead of being forced to spend their entire lives sitting behind a desk.rnrnIn faith, the barrier standing between you and everything in life you care about is your imagination and the belief in yourself that you can make it happen.rnrnLife is full of tough decisions,” says Jordan. “Some people go through life pleased that the glass is half-full; others spend a lifetime lamenting that it’s half-empty. The truth is there is a glass with a certain volume of liquid in it. From there, it’s up to you! Imagination is everything. It is the preview of life’s coming attractions.”rnrnDon’t become mired in facts alone. Allow yourself to walk in faith and start reaping the rewards that are within you.
