ON FAITH AND PRESEVERANCE

'Faith in self' means and amounts to confidence in one's own 'self' i.e., faith in one's own strength, skill and will. Self-confidence is a great virtue. An invaluable asset. It illumines the present and brightens the future. It is comparable to a torch that dispels darkness encircling the world. The well-cultivated faith lashes at the evil despair and pounds the wavering, sluggish laziness to powder. It puts to rout the Satan Frustration first. There is nothing unconquerable and unattainable and unanswerable to a man of faith. 'Impossibility' is erased from his life's dictionary. He springs to action at the very mention of it. He then summons up his resources, sharpens his intellect and marches forward thrusting aside the critics and spurning all the obstacles on his way. And so, he wins ultimately. Does it mean that he wears a success-proof armor? No! Not at all!! He falls often. Bleeds frequently. But the magic of his faith is that he rises, every time he falls, and runs as soon as he rises. So, none could hear the thud at his fall, but all could see a sudden bump, following the fall. Moreover, he never broods over the losses, or failures, nor does he search for scars, or amputations. His self-confidence propels all his impulses and enables him to achieve what he aspires.

But, lack of faith, mind you, results in stagnation of action, giving birth to self-approach. Stagnation sounds a death knells to progress of any kind in anything. Symptoms of deterioration of the accumulated strength, or wisdom appear as first installment. Deterioration is detestable.
