What causes certain people to succeed where other people fail? This has been a question that has fueled my photography business over the last five years. How can so many people go into the business only to drop out just a few months or years later and what is the main factor that creates longevity. I have decided that the main factor is our relationship to fear. How do we handle certain situations and decisions when we act from fear rather that acting from faith? How do we handle risk? How do we deal with being completely uncertain?
Just like with everything in life, there are no guarantees. A woman who has been at her job for over 30 years could lose it tomorrow without warning. Just like you could start a business and fail. But with this one question, I was able to take the biggest risk of my life up until that point and it made all the difference.
