“You’ve got to be seen to be believed.” – a quote the queen said in regards to dressing in bright colors. There’s a lot of truth in that. Some people think if they cannot see it that it does not exist but even on cloudy days the sun is still there.
If only we could believe that it’s there even though we don’t see it. We believe as a child that the tooth fairy is there even though we don’t see them. But why do we stop believing in what we cannot see? Maybe because someone said “Prove it!” and we got shaken by the challenge that we couldn’t prove it and just stopped believing.
Believing, trusting, and having faith are all cousins to doors opening for us. It is sometimes those cousins that save us too. If Noah didn’t believe in God, trust that the flood was coming, and have faith that he and his family would be saved then he would’ve never built the ark.
And here’s the thing, you do not have to prove to anybody what you believe. It doesn’t matter how crazy it looks or sounds. If that is your belief, core values, or instinct then that’s all that matters. Everyone’s path looks different. We each have our journey and our assignment was not on a conference call.
I believe there are folks out there right now, possibly reading this that want to be more and do more but are scared that nobody will believe in them. The fear of failure or not knowing how to explain the mission is real. If you believe that’s what you are supposed to do then go for it. Jump and don’t be afraid to fall. So what if you do, the guy next to you is too scared to try their mission. If you wanna be believed then be seen.
