In life, you need to have faith to be able to take life head on. Rather than raise the flag of defeat, lash out in anger or take the path of least resistance, you can rise up to the challenge and meet it head on with your faith in God.

Marcus Garvey once said, “Some of us seem to accept the fatalist position. The fatalist attitude that the Creator accorded to us a certain position and condition and therefore there is no need trying to do otherwise.” His words preface an essay by writers Dennis Kimbro and Napoleon Hill who wrote about black men responding to challenge in the book Brotherman: The Odyssey of Black Men in America, An Anthology.

Here is a statement from the book: “in everyone’s life, there comes a time of ultimate challenge, a time when all our resources are tested. A time life seems unfair. A time when our faith, our values, our patience, our compassion and our ability to persist are pushed to the limit and beyond. While some have used such test as an opportunity for growth, others have turned away and allowed these experiences to destroy their hopes.” You can Live Your Dreams

Without that faith and that unceasing belief on yourself and our capacity to rise above, there would be no progress and development on a personal level and as a society. We have to be moving on despite of the many burdens and challenges we are facing. There would self-doubts along the way but we have to focus on the things we want to achieve and even if there are times we can be derailed, still we can be there. :)

This post reminds me of the saying/lines "You will know how strong you are when being strong is all what is left". I agree that we should have faith in ourselves which is also saying that we should believe in ourselves that we could reach our goals. Also to develop for the better.
