What is faith?
This is a question I’ve been working on for a while now, part of a bigger project to really examine the words we use a lot and maybe don’t “KNOW” what they mean. So I’ll ask again, what is faith…
“Optimism is the faith that leads to achievement.”Helen Keller
Today’s quote from Helen Keller takes a stab at answering the question and defines faith as optimism that leads to achievement. But I’ve come to understand it differently.
See, optimism still leaves room for it to not work out. I can be optimistic about an outcome that never happens. Faith, however, means it IS going to happen, just as certainly as something already written in history.
So what does all this mean to the business owner? To the entrepreneur? As we are nearing the end of 2019 and finishing up our plans for 2020…are you optimistic or do you have faith?
