Life ni kujichocha. FAITH IT UNTIL YOU MAKE IT!!
When I first used this vehicle, I had received a call from a foreign company with an office in Kenya requesting whether I was in a position to offer a certain service. The fact that they had been referred to me by another multinational was a prove that I could do the task. They sent a lady to come verify my physical location and the Chinesse lady was there in my office for about 4 hrs making alot of calls in Chinese and listening to my staff responding to calls that came just to be convinced that I was reliable. Coincidentally that time I had very many visitors come to the office, some of those you would wish to have in such a situation. Later around 3pm they requested I go meet their Managing Director. I called a friend and we used this Prado and when we arrived at their premises. the MD was out with some managers having a discussion and when they saw us arrive I could see the conviction in their eyes and they ushered us into their boardroom with those affirming positive nods. Just by how we landed at their office convinced them that I was equal to the task and actually they paid me 100% before doing the assignment.
My friend, this is what I call the power of perception in personal branding. There is a way you can present yourself in an event and win the trust of people around.
Have you ever seen when a football or rugby team is about to get to the field or some days before they face a major opponent and the coach is about to chose the team, they do crazy things on the pitch to scare the opponents as well as have the coach believe in their ability.
My friend, you have to make the world know that you exist and have the potential. Don’t just sit there and wait for a ‘one sweet day’, you gotta arise and make your light shine so blight that the world recognize what you are made of.
By imitating confidence, competence, and an optimistic mindset, a person can realize those qualities in their real life.
This is about setting your mindset right. When you correctly identify something within yourself that’s holding you back. Behaving like the person you want to become is about changing the way you feel and the way you think. Men acquire a particular quality by constantly acting a certain way. The essence of being successful is not faking it but the opposite–being authentic. If you want to become someone or achieve something, it has to come from your authentic self. So I recommend ‘Faith it until you make it’.
Look at David in the bible, he faced Goliath with a lot of boldness until Giant Goliath. HE Faithed it. Faithing.
1 Samuel 17:46 This day the Lord will hand you over to me, and I will strike you down and cut off your head. And I will give the corpses of the army of the Philistines this day to the birds of the sky and the wild beasts of the earth, so that all the earth may know that there is a God in Israel, 47 and that this entire assembly may know that the Lord does not save with the sword or with the spear; for the battle is the Lord’s and He will hand you over to us.”
Perfection is not attainable, but if we chase perfection we can catch excellence. See the big picture and sweat it out to pursuing it.
So many times I know my faith in my purpose and my abilities have gotten me to continue to stay positive and take actions towards fulfilling dreams, even after feeling rejected. It takes a lot to stay inspired and on course towards life goals; like sharing and succeeding with your public speaking skills , new business ideas, or attracting a great partner, even a marriage partner.
My wife Keziah can tell you on how the tactics I used to win her to by my wife worked. She keep reminding me vile nilimuingiza box easily in a comical way which was about kujichocha.
Faith is defined as having confidence or trust in something or someone. When you “faith it till you make it”, then you don’t need to be an imposter. You instead have faith in who you are, and what you offer, and that energy exudes and broadcasts so clearly that you magnetize what you want naturally.
Take a few moments to focus on something you want to create in your life. First, are you telling others or is it just an inner desire?
Next, do you talk about it in a positive assured manner or a defeated or negative way?
How much faith do you have in creating your desires?
If you’re not faith-ing it till you make it, what action can you take or support do you need to get your confidence and belief quotient up?
Please note am not talking about fake it until you make it.
When you are faking you are pretending to be something that you are not. You are in fact living in a false reality. You’re seeking to deceive others and yourself all the while you truly know that what you are faking is not who you are within or what you truly believe. On the contrast, faith-ing is the exact opposite!
Faith is not pretending, but TRULY BELIEVING in what God can do, has done, and will do! FAITH-ing is complete and total trust in God.
It’s a confidence in Him, His abilities, and His faithfulness. A life lived in faith, is a life that doesn’t pretend to believe in the power of God but truly believes in His power! Everything we do in this life should be done BY FAITH and IN FAITH. Why? Because if we expect to please God and honor Him, there is no other way we can live.
So I want to encourage you, whatever you are dealing with or facing in your life right now, FULLY and COMPLETELY trust God. “FAITH it until you make it!”
God does not expect you to have all the answers. That’s what He’s for! He doesn’t want you to try to figure it all out on your own. Instead, He wants you to simply focus on having absolute and total faith in Him in every aspect of your life. Whether it’s your finances, your career path, your relationships, your aspirations, or your health, seek to trust Him with ALL of it! God has never failed His faithful children.
Even if circumstances in your life may seem difficult, remember difficulty does not mean God has failed you. Instead it’s a perfect opportunity for you to put your faith in the one who created you.
He loves you. Just continue to walk in faith like He has commanded you.
How will they recognize that calling, that gift, that talent in you if you don’t arise and display it for the world to recognize it? Even the bible says that our gift will open doors for us and make us dine with kings, but we have to play our part of discovering and exposing them to the world.. You gotta do something friend, don’t just sit there waiting for year 2030 for Obama to be the president of Kenya for your star to shine, Changamka, ebu jitokeze, simamaa, jiwakilishe, jionyeshe mbele ya watu.
Ni kujichocha na Imani bana. Faith does not make things easy, it makes them possible. FAITH IT UNTIL YOU MAKE IT.
