Taking a Leap of Faith is never easy nor comfortable, in fact it’s everything but that. In a nutshell taking a leap of faith is to take an action with no prediction of it’s success. It is making a decision and without further deliberation jumping. Sounds scary huh? Well it is! To take a leap of faith you must really believe that where you’re going, is better than where you are. People that make this decision are more than risk takers, they are visionaries, they are people that have original ideas about what the future can hold. Let’s clarify this, someone that changes a job is not exactly taking a Leap of Faith, people change jobs every day. Now let’s say that person quit a job to work for a new start up company and was going to work on commission because the person believed in the company and product – now that’s taking a Leap of Faith! Here’s a good way to look at it: If most people you know wouldn’t do it, that’s probably a Leap of Faith. But let’s be clear, a Leap of Faith is anchored with some evidence of it’s practicality. Just the words alone give you some indication of that. It’s Leap of Faith, not Fall of Faith and the word Faith tells you that there is some belief. And along with belief there is trust, confidence, optimism, hopefulness and a conviction. Doesn’t sound so bad now huh??? But leaping is just the beginning, the real work starts once the leapers feet hit the ground. And that is where the rubber hits the road and separates the men from the mice.  Let’s look at two people that leaped and are now soaring high in their success.
