Never Let Your Fear Grow Bigger Than Your Faith

The Word Faith

If you roll the word over your tongue a few times you begin to realize how powerful of a word it is. Most of us have faith in something.

Many people have faith in a higher power or religious doctrine.

Having faith in others or a deity is good, but the person you need to have unwavering faith in is you. Only when you have faith in yourself will you be able to reach your goals.

Practicing faith is different than being a positive thinker.  It is deeper.  Having self-faith means that you make choices and base decisions on your own knowledge and your intuition and you don’t second guess that decision if someone else expresses doubt.

It’s having a deep seated belief that things will work out.
