Peace and Clarity of Vision – # 6 of 25 Traits of a Fearless Entrepreneur

Most unsuccessful people believe that they suffer from bad
luck or Murphy’s Law. Successful entrepreneurs believe that the world is
conspiring to help them achieve their goals.
I was recently interviewed on this topic and asked if this principle has played a part in my success in
building connections, partnerships and ultimately reaching my goals?  

My answer was this.  
My principles go much deeper than an impersonal “law of
nature” or the “law of reciprocity”.  My
life verse comes from Psalm 139 that says that from the foundation of the
earth, every day of my life was ordered. 
I was created to be the very person that I am and to come across the
paths of those that can help me achieve my goals, my hopes and my dreams.  
The nice thing about that perspective is that I just have to wake up every day, and be
guided by peace and clarity of vision for the day.  That doesn’t mean everything will go smoothly
and that there will be no obstacles or no chaos.
Like this picture of the path that is flooded, I can take of my magic shoes (see yesterday’s blog) and walk on through.    
I can walk through difficult situations (including a spectacular business failure resulting in significant personal loss) with complete assurance that there is something on the other side of those
mountains and that I will be stronger by emerging on the other side.  
I believe that people are attracted to people
who are peaceful about their situation and who have that clarity of vision to
know how to persevere, no matter the circumstance.
