Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. Faith is yet another word for believe. Believing is a process of possession. To be able to possess what you seek for, you must first believe that you can achieve it. When you believe in something, it settles in your spirit, and then moves from something you believe, to something you know. At that point you know it’s yours.
Every individual forms his own estimation of himself. This estimate he forms of himself largely determines what he eventually becomes. You can be no more than you believe you are. It is impossible for one to release more than he thinks is possible. You are only bound by the limited expectancies of the subconscious. The subconscious mind is influenced by your very own thoughts, which reflects your attitude. You are a reflection of your thoughts.
Your faith is linked up to our destiny. It all starts with our thoughts. We think about what we believe. The more we think about what fills our mind, the more we see ourselves possessing it, then we start talking about it. As humans, we have a tendency of wanting to do what we say. Thoughts lead to words which eventually lead to action. The more we talk about what we want to do, cause us to do them. At that moment, when consistency is put into action, over a short period of time, forms the habit we do on a regular basis. Our habits form our character, which determines what we become.
Earlier, we said faith is the evidence of things not seen. How we act largely depends on what we believe. That is why we find people willing to die for what they believe in, regardless of the nature of the cause. On the other hand, take for example; someone who has been raised all his life to believe in a particular thing or cause maybe a religion or culture. Then someone else comes with another belief contradicting everything he believes in, with the impression that it is the truth, and everything he was taught to believe is wrong. Take a second to imagine such dilemma.
You are experiencing everything you believe. Your life is a reflection of your thoughts, so be careful what you say to yourself, because you are also watching and listening. Whatever you say to yourself stays with you, whether of good or not. Learn to weed out thoughts that sabotages.
Think out of the box. Now with the knowledge you just got about the power of your thoughts. Knowing you attract what you believe. I guess you would want to focus all that energy thinking about the right thoughts. You get what you give. Think Big.
