“Are you spending more time and energy thinking about DOUBT, SELF-DOUBT and FEAR or HOPE, FAITH and BELIEF?”
-Jamie Kern Lima
What does your own moral compass tell you when it comes to living your own life? Is it one of doubt, self-doubt and fear or is it in hope, faith and belief? Bestselling author and Founder of IT Cosmetics Jamie Kern Lima asks this question in today’s quote. Doubt is uncertainty which focuses on those factors that are around you that will have an impact on you and others. This leads to self-doubt which is that uncertainty with yourself. These both put us on a collision course with fear. Fear of the past, present and future. These all become overwhelming for anyone to handle. To me this is a fixed mindset way of thinking.
Now hope is a feeling of expectation and desire for a certain thing to happen which leads to faith in having complete trust or confidence in something. These both leads to faith which ultimately means acceptance of something that is true. These all encompass the growth mindset way of thinking. Let us make sure we choose to embrace life and not run away from it.
What does this quote mean to you and how can you apply today’s message towards defining/refining your own moral compass?
