Mindset 163

by C.L. Harmon
Sometimes all we can do is accept the decisions of others. Although life is so much about choices, we are often not given the choice to change the views and decisions of others.
Many times our only option is to accept and this is not by accident but by design. This act of acceptance, however, does not mean that we have faith in other’s choices. It does not mean we believe in them or understand the direction they have chosen to pursue.
To be believed in is a fundamental need for us all to build character, confidence and self worth. There are no great achievements without support, no rewards without faith. As we live we learn that we are created to believe in possibilities, not question them.
This is accomplished by choosing to have faith in ourselves and others. Unlike acceptance, this faith is always a choice which cannot be forced; it can only be given. This too is done by design.
Sometimes we are forced to accept so we can be given the opportunity to believe. If we choose to look beyond our own views pertaining to the lives of others and simply offer our faith to them and their choices, we become a part of all their accomplishments.
Endless possibilities exist only in the presence of unwavering faith. When we believe in others, we not only give a part of ourselves to them, we tell them that they matter. And it is that faith which is the most important element needed to achieve great things.
