A couple of weeks ago I found myself stuck in somewhat of a dilemma. I found that my mind was been consumed with worry, concern, and even some sadness.
After a few days of this, one of my best friends came to me and asked if I was ok… he had noticed I hadn’t been acting myself.
I decided that I needed to talk to someone about it, and why not talk to someone who I trust completely?
At first I struggled to find the words to express the way I felt, but before I knew it, the words were pouring out of my mouth before I even had the time to think about what I was saying.
I didn’t feel adequate.
I didn’t feel like someone like me, someone who has made so many mistakes, could ever have an important role in making this world a better place.
How could I help others, when so often I find myself unable to help myself?
And perhaps what was worrying me the most was that for the first time in my life, I had a very clear picture of where I wanted to be, where I wanted to end up…
But all I could think of was everything that could go wrong.
I didn’t feel like I deserved all that I was hope and dreaming for.
I was about halfway through all of my thoughts when my friend interrupted me mid-sentence and said to me, “Sam, I don’t know what to say to make you feel better, and I don’t know the solution to your every worry, but here is what have to say: Faith in the outcome. Have faith in the outcome.”
His words hit me so hard. At that moment the direction of my every thought and worry changed.
I have made mistakes. But I have moved past them.
Things will go wrong. But so many things will go right.
I will get knocked down. But I can get back up.
I will be hurt. But I will always be loved by so many.
The journey will be difficult. But I have faith in the outcome.
I think this is such an important thing to remember. If you know where you want to end up, then work hard, and have faith that you will get there.
Because that is exactly what will happen
When you have faith in the outcome.
