Monthly Shorts - FAITH

What I am Thinking about...
I am thinking a lot about faith. A few years ago I read the book "Think and Grow Rich" written by Napoleon Hill, if you haven't read this book yet, do yourself a favor and read it. I believe it is the bible or foundation of any other business book out there, period. Napoleon Hill wrote this book during the depression time learning from the people who succeed during that time and explains the road to success in a way that not many books were able to add on to his core ideas.
Anyway, one of the main cornerstones that are mentioned in this book is FAITH. That moment that you keep trusting yourself when everyone around you think that you are crazy, or any other word you want to add to the list. Now, a little background, my parents grew up in a Kibbutz in Israel, which means that as a child our family didn't give too much attention to religion or faith. It is not just me, it is most of the people around me who grew up this way. When I read Napoleon Hills Book it made me think a lot about faith and what does it mean to me, but I could sense how uncomfortable I am. I became curious about "that place" where you truly believe that what you are creating and the path you chose are meaningful. I thought I understand it. But today during my run, while looking at the trees and cars and the still water and the leaves I realized that in 2018 I learned to understand faith. You see I took an oath this year to believe in what others still can't. Sometimes we can see for others what they cannot see for themselves. So many times in my life people were able to see the spark in me when I was still too messy to see it myself. They called on me and asked me to show up. But sometimes people are not even ready to be called on, and that's okay, all we can do is believe that they will, one day. Some of you might be way way ahead of me in this game of faith. It is okay, I am where I am. What I do know, is faith is not an uncomfortable word for me anymore. I say that Faith it that quiet moment that makes you feel at peace.
