What is a “Leap of Faith”?

A leap of faith is defined as one of two things:  

Believing in something whose existence can not be proved . . .

Attempting something in which the outcome is unknown . . .

 

Our decision to quit our jobs and live on a boat was a HUGE leap of faith, for both of us. We had no idea what the outcome might be.  We had romantic visions of calm tropical coves, white sandy beaches and clear, blue waters. But we also knew we might face adversity due to weather events, mechanical breakdowns, etc. Could we stand living so closely together all the time? Could we make our meager savings last by accepting a more minimalist lifestyle? 

Lots of questions with no clear answers. We simply had to have faith that it would all work out. Some may find that admirable. Others may think it irresponsible. Let me tell you, we have no regrets. Our leap of faith has been rewarded beyond our wildest dreams. 

My book was an attempt to show others that they too can break out of the normal routines of modern american life and shoot for their dream, whatever it may be. I wanted to show people that they DO have other choices in life. Sure it takes courage, it takes balls, and a whole lot of faith. What is your reward? 

 

There are many talented people who haven’t fulfilled their dreams because they over thought it, or they were too cautious, and were unwilling to make the leap of faith.
James Cameron 

By leaving your comfort zone behind and taking a leap of faith into something new, you find out who you are truly capable of becoming.

 

It only takes one idea, one second in time, one friend, one dream, one leap of faith, to change everything forever.
