“You must first have the knowledge of your power; second, the courage to dare; third, the faith to do.”
Charles F. Haanel, 1919
What better way to know your power than to feel you are here for a purpose; it is one only you can do well, given your specific talents, abilities, and the spark of care that you feel for that which moves you?
What is it you care about so much you feel
it to be impossible not to move toward it,
with care for it overflowing in every step?
What better way to have courage to dare than to act without thought of self in service of that which moves you, and using some or all of abilities you feel you do well — and the world smiles back in return?
What do you do, and do so well the world smiles at you
when you are in the midst of it?
And the faith to do . . . ah, there’s the task.
Faith is making the plan, starting at the point where what you dream as your life and life-work is still only a vision, lovely and glowing, and moving backwards to where you sit today, making the plan.
Faith is seeing something that doesn’t necessarily appear to others, but which you see and feel clearly.
Faith is knowing something exists when you don’t tangibly see it. Faith is the vase with water in it, neither half full nor half empty, but rather overflowing. For it is filled with water to the level you see it, and it is filled with air that you can’t see overflowing out of it and enveloping you and all that is in this beautiful world.
Faith to do is taking little step by little step from where you are today to the vision you see in your imagination and taking action in faith you have all the air and water you need now and en route.
So take a little a step today and see where you are! What a beautiful day!
Blessings on your little step today…
