Two years ago, Matt and I couldn’t afford groceries.
He reminded me the other day as I was grabbing organic produce.
“Remember when we had to buy groceries on multiple credit cards because everything was maxed out?” Yes. This used to be my life. But we kept going and didn’t give up.
Why? Because we had FAITH.
We decided to focus more on the vision of what we were creating for our future, more than the reality we were facing at that moment.
Running a business is not for the faint-hearted.
Especially when we hit slumps, setbacks or obstacles in our business.
You have a reality that is giving you all these signs to give up but you have this fire in your heart to keep going.
Back then, maxing out credit-cards and struggling to get by, I knew in my heart that I wanted to do something big and amazing in this world and I was fighting for it.
Yes, there were many days where we were pinching pennies and barely affording bananas, but I kept going and kept trusting that the universe was calling me to something I couldn’t currently see.
We created wealth because we had faith.
Faith allowed us to invest in our business when we were struggling.
Faith allowed me to show up as a leader before I even was.
Faith was the permission slip for me to take a risk and go after my dreams.
Faith is the reason why I am here today running Badass Business Babe with the most amazing Team and #BBBNATION.
Faith is about trusting in something you cannot currently see.
And without faith, we would not be here today.
So the next time you look at your physical reality and you say, “see it’s not working,” check yourself and ask, “where is my faith today?”
I love you. Don't stop going after your dreams.
Lauren Eliz Love.
