When it is all said and done, when you have done your work, done it well, and “tilled the soil” of your success, one thing remains: To trust that the “what” you have done will bear fruit. Trust is an inner knowing and a “focused surrender” that things will work out.

Martin Luther King Jr. wrote: “Faith is taking the first step even when you don’t see the whole staircase” and Ramona C. Carroll opined that “faith is putting all your eggs in God’s basket, and then counting your blessings before they hatch.” They are exactly right!

There are steps to take in the faith and trust process. First you must take the right steps to your path of success. You must have a vision and a purpose and use the skills, disciplines, strategies and techniques - and not just a few times. This is a continual daily process of “planting the seeds” and setting the impressions in your mind.

When you waiver with doubts, you weaken the link and path to a successful outcome. You may have to take additional steps if you feel there is more to do to insure success. But trust is an internal process based on faith, strength, intuition, passion and a true knowing that what you are doing is right and will have the highest and best result.
Results are all around us. Every successful step you take along the way to your goal is proof that what you are doing is working. This builds your trust in yourself and in the process. And when you take a step that does not work, you can re-evaluate and listen to intuition to take a different step.

Life is a learning process. As I write this, I realize how much I need to follow my own advice. It’s difficult to have faith when the outer results are not in front of you. But it is only when you trust and have faith, that something greater happens. Doors open, obstacles diminish and step-by-step…day-by-day, you walk the path to your goal.
