Welcome to DISCOVER A NEW FUTURE!
My name is Faith Saunders and I am the founder and CEO of Discover A New Future. I came to the realization a few years ago that many people are merely existing. They take great care to look beautiful on the outside, but are crumbling away inside. Ask me how I know? This was my life until I heard someone ask the question, “When are you going to stop taking a back seat in YOUR life and show up in it?” This question changed my life!
Believe me, it has been quite a journey because at first, I had no clue what it meant to show up in my life. I eventually learned that it meant BEING. Yes, that is connecting to who I really am – good, flawed and indifferent – and really loving myself. It took a LOT of work to get to this point – wading through the valley (self-doubt, depression, fear… the list goes on) but it was worth it. Old habits are sometimes hard to break so I occasionally find myself retreating down familiar but self-destructive paths; however, the good news is that I am able to identify where I am before I tread too far.
The following may sound like a cliché but it’s true – it’s all about connecting with ones PURPOSE. I have no doubt that I have found mine, and it is really liberating. I am here to do whatever I can to help you to BREAK FREE so you can find your purpose! You may be wondering what I mean by BREAK FREE. Most of what holds many of us from fulfilling our purpose does not lie outside of our self; it lies within us – shame, fear, self-doubt, negative attitude and so on. Zig Ziglar said it best:
“You have to BE, before you can DO, before you can HAVE.”
In other words, you have to connect with who you really are (that is, BE) so that you can DO what is really important to you which will yield (that is, HAVE) the things that are most meaningful to you!
