A wise man once said " if one has faith; one has everything". The man who spoke these profound words was the spiritual guru of the 19th century an Indian yogi named Ramekrishna Paramahamsa. The textbook definition of faith is to have complete trust and assurance in someone or something.
Whether you have faith in yourself or in a doctrine of religion, faith is as essential to this beautiful thing called life as the air we breathe.
Some agree that there are two aspects to examine when it comes to faith; intellectual assent and trust. For example, intellectual assent is the recognition that a chair is designed to support one who sits in it. Trust, is actually sitting in the chair. Perpetual faith can be a force multiplier while incredulity can create obstacles. It's all in the approach.
Jessie Jackson said "if my mind can conceive it, my heart can believe it, then I can achieve it"! You- yes you were created for a very specific purpose; on purpose! Get your faith up! Learn how to be your own cheerleader!
Muhammad Ali repetitiously told himself and the entire world that he was the greatest fighter and guess what, he was! He was quoted saying "I am the greatest, I said that even before I knew I was."
There is a verse in the book of Matthew in the Holy Bible that speaks about faith. It says if you have faith even as small as a mustard seed, you can say to a mountain, move from here to there and it will move! Nothing will be impossible for you!
In the Islamic sacred book, the Quran, there is a surah that speaks to the power of faith. It reads"so lose not heart nor fall into despair, for you will be superior if you are true in your faith".
One of my favorite video clips comes from Sean John Combs, the CEO and founder of Bad Boy Worldwide Entertainment Group, a multifaceted entertainment powerhouse. Sean secured an MTV spot and celebrated by saying "I'm a savage! Whatever I want I get"!
Faith is the walkway for an abundant life, therefore hold it at the forefront of your thoughts. Get your faith up and you will be unstoppable!
