I Didn't Know How Either
When I started my company over 17 years ago, I came to a crossroads.
I had to choose between staying at my corporate job (where I worked for a direct fuel distributor) — or walking away, so that I could step into something related to my dream (my life’s purpose).
I didn’t know what my dream or purpose was, exactly.
All I knew was that if I stayed in my job, I would never be able to live my dream.
Today people always ask me, “David, how do I do this? Here’s what I want. But I get stuck in the how.”
Well, I was stuck in the same place. I had no idea “how” to do what I’m doing today. I had to learn all of that along the way.
But I couldn’t learn any of it without first coming to that crossroads — and then having the faith to make a right turn instead of a left turn.
“Left turn” was staying in a place that was comfortable.
“Right turn” meant stepping out in faith towards my dream… and making the decision that I would let Spirit (or God) lead my life.
I had to trust that the opportunity would show up, and it would guide me to where I am now.
To the average person, that’s crazy… quitting your job to follow a dream.
I was married, had four kids, a mortgage, car payments, the whole thing. I had everything we call “the American Dream.”
I was going to risk it all to follow what some people would think is a crazy dream that had no basis in reality.
I’d never done it before. Nobody I knew had ever done it before, and nobody even knew how to do it.
How do you make a decision that seems absolutely nuts in most people’s minds?
It required that I gain more than an ordinary knowledge of FAITH.
Faith would allow me to step out and embrace my dream… and do it while knowing EVERYTHING that was required for me to succeed, would show up.
That’s exactly how I did it. I totally stepped into that road.
I studied faith and applied it to my life. This allowed me to overcome a massive amount of fear.
On this day before Thanksgiving, I urge all of you to take a few moments and remember those times in your life where you stepped outside of the box, did something no one thought you could do, or really followed what your inner voice was telling you to be, do or have.
Be grateful for your own courage and faith and all the people and resources that supported you… and remind yourself that you CAN do GREAT things through the power of decision, faith and action!

I’ve always had your podcast on rotation and really enjoy listening to your content, but it’s truly been a huge part of my life in the last two weeks or so, especially episodes 140 and 141; and, 156-158.
I took a complete leap of faith to leave my current job and pursue my own coaching business that I started in June. This is what I’m called to do; not only do those podcast episodes above TOTALLY resonate and help me, and have been on REPEAT, but then this specific blog post comes out and I know all is right in the reality I’m creating. Thank you for all that you do; I always include your teachings on my gratitude list!!!
