Belief is fundamentally about action, not just fleeting feelings or passive thoughts. It is the driving force behind our decisions and behaviors, shaping the way we interact with the world. While feelings and emotions can be part of belief systems, true belief manifests in our actions and choices. A person's convictions are most evident not in their beliefs but in their lives and daily decisions. Belief empowers individuals to step out of their comfort zones, take risks, and contribute meaningfully to their communities. It propels them to stand up for what they think is right, advocate for change, and pursue their goals with unwavering determination. In essence, belief becomes a guiding principle that directs one's actions, demonstrating the depth of their commitment and the sincerity of their convictions.
But today, there is a pervasive mantra that we have to feel like what we believe will work out. The problem with this idea is that sometimes our feelings can crowd out truth. In those moments, we must continue to move forward.
