Faith is allowing ourselves to be seized by the things we do not see. – Martin Luther
In “Think and Grow Rich” by Napoleon Hill he talked a lot about faith. He told the stories of Edison, Ford and others like them to illustrate that these success stories were born through extreme faith. They all latched on to a vision of the future and never lost faith that it would come to be reality.
The quote above reminded me of this because of his use of the word seized.
Many of the great success stories could be written using that description.
Henry Ford was seized by the idea of creating an affordable car.
Thomas Edison was seized by the idea of creating a light bulb.
The question for each of us is: What has seized me?
Are we seized by worry, jealousy, and fear?
Or are we seized by prosperity, contentment and joy?
We do not have to invent the next light bulb to be able to have faith in a big idea that will seize us and lead us to success and happiness.
Make it a great day.
