Faith is not belief. Belief is passive. Faith is active.

Stronger than doubt

Your doubts may feel strong and compelling, yet you are much stronger. After all, you have the ability to take action.

Your doubts require a certain specific scenario in order to make any sense. You, however, can work your way to a whole new scenario in which those old doubts will have no validity.

Every action you take is a triumph over your doubts. Start small if you must, build up to bigger, more consequential actions, and those doubts will surely and steadily fade away.

Your doubts get all of their energy from you. And you don’t ever have to give them any more of it.

Instead, put your energy into positive, effective action. Put your energy into dreaming big, wonderful, meaningful dreams, then step forward and act to give those dreams life.

Even the biggest doubts are no match for the power of your passion. Put that passion into action, and leave your doubts behind.

— Ralph Marston
