Brian Braudis’ 1-Minute Morning Memo: June 25, 2018 – Faith

I have always had faith that doing the small things leads to big results. I have witnessed it work for me personally and many other people that I work with as a coach. I had enough faith—even for those who at first did not. The faith that small, finely tuned adjustments made the difference between success and failure was always affirmed through experience.

That folks is what faith looks like. Not belief. I wasn’t believing in me or dogma of some kind. I remained open to the truth no matter where it led while experimenting, trying, course correcting and trying again.

Faith is risky and takes more courage. It is less secure than beliefs. You don’t know but you’re ready and open to try. You still challenge everything but with openness to learn what will work. Faith helps people take small steps each day.

Taking small steps, creating small wins each day is what creates momentum and that momentum helps you make the habits that end up making you. There’s a quote that goes something like—we build our habits then those habits come to define us.

Reading on the subject of cosmology—which is a new area for me, I learned that physicists are beginning to understand our universe and they have recognized that many of the physical constants of Nature seem to be the right pitch, angle and make up, everything is set just right to allow matter to condense and create life.

The late Stephen Hawking said, the remarkable fact is that the values of these numbers seem to have been very finely adjusted to make possible the development of life.

Hawking came to that conclusion with careful intellectual scientific study.

I’m awestruck that we both arrived at the same conclusion–small, fine adjustments make all the difference–through different paths. We both just used what we had. Essence and science got us both to the same place. That’s cosmic!

May The Faith Be With You!
