What Is A Leap Of Faith?
A leap of faith is a decision or action that is taken without the assurance of a positive outcome or without complete certainty about the consequences. It involves taking a risk or making a choice based on belief, trust, or hope, rather than on concrete evidence or facts.
Leaps of faith are often associated with moments of significant change or transition, when a person is faced with a choice that involves a significant level of risk or uncertainty. For example, starting a new business, moving to a new city, or leaving a stable job to pursue a passion may all involve leaps of faith. They don’t always have to be major events – they can be small, too! For example, trying frog legs, wearing a crop top, or giving yourself bangs for the first time, Those are all definitely leaps of faith! 😂
Leaps of faith can be scary, as they involve stepping into the unknown and taking a risk. But 99% of the time, they are exhilarating and rewarding; these leaps more often than not lead to new opportunities, growth, and personal fulfillment.
5 Steps To Take A Leap Of Faith
1. Gain Awareness
Having clarity on what exactly it is you want or want to do. What is something that is always lingering in the back of your mind? Maybe it’s something that you tend to suppress because it’s a little scary.
2. Trust The Process
Trust that when you take the first step, you will be guided and supported. There may be hurdles, but trust that you will overcome anything. The red carpet usually rolls out in front of you when you finally take that leap. Think of your leap of faith as a literal leap – jumping into the wind. Go with the flow! The more you try to control the process, the more resistance you’ll create. Relax and don’t overthink it!.Don’t question your decision, just keep going. Life doesn’t always need to be taken so seriously.
3. Look For Signs
You’ll be surprised at how many little signs and synchronicities will pop up once you take the leap. Say you quit your job, then out of the blue – poof! – the perfect job appears in front of your eyes. Even how you’re feeling can be a sign that you’re on the right path.
Reminder: If you’re looking for a sign, that IS your sign!
4. Remember The Logistics
There is some ‘thinking’ involved with taking a leap of faith; it’s not just la la land. If you’re taking a big leap of faith like moving or quitting your job, there is a certain amount of administrative tasks you should be on top of before you take that leap. Unfortunately, it’s not the wisest decision to quit your job immediately when the thought enters your mind. Make sure you have enough money to survive for a while and have the essential logistics of your reality in order before leaping. But remember! Do NOT let these logistics keep you from taking that leap – don’t delay too long, otherwise you may give up. Just quickly get your affairs in order and leap into that wind, baby!
5. Be Confident
Most importantly – go all in! Don’t hesitate!! Anything is possible! I can assure you from personal experience that every single leap I’ve taken has paid off so much!
The Master Of Leaps Of Faith
I wanted to share the reminders I always keep in mind when I take my leaps of faith. It can be kind of scary, but just know that every single leap you take is 100% worth it – I promise.
Here are some major leaps I’ve taken in my lifetime:
- Quit my job and sold all my belongings
- Moved to Bali with no job and not knowing anyone
- Started my own business
- Hired a coach
- Moved between many countries over the span of 5 years
- Started a podcast (this is my very first episode!)
In this podcast episode, I share exactly how I kept calm during each leap, and also the signs I received while I was making my decisions. I mean, when I was deciding if I should move to Bulgaria or not, I received multiple signs that it was the right choice! Who would’ve thunk it?!
I wanted to share these experiences so you know that anything you set your mind to is possible! If I can do it, you can too! I promise!!
