In a world that seems to dump challenge after challenge on our shoulders, it’s important to understand the difference between Hope and Faith. Hope articulates the wish that things will get better. Faith is the belief that carefully considered action can lead to productive outcomes.
There are thousands of good ideas that emerge from creative minds every day. What makes them great is a combination of talent, timing, perseverance and luck. That last element may seem to be the toss of a coin, but as Louis Pasteur wrote, “Chance favors the prepared mind”. If you have the courage to believe, you may not achieve exactly what you first picture in your mind. But with persistence, you will find the right road and the right people to help you mold the initial hunk of clay into something valuable.
