Start Your New Year with the Renewed Faith

Faith is taking the first step even when you don’t see the whole staircase.
Martin Luther King, Jr.

The week began with Martin Luther King Jr. Day and I am still caught in the spirit of that day. Of many pearls that I have collected from the ocean of Martin Luther King’s wisdom, the above quote is stuck to my mind. For me faith is like seeing the stars even when the sky is overcast. The belief that every cloud has silver lining is the most valuable asset an individual can possess. The people who have been successful are those who had a firm and indomitable belief in themselves as well as in the universe. Sometimes, you are scared to take the step but you got to stand and trust yourself and have faith in the universe. This universe never lets anyone fall, so you got to trust the universe. Life is not about giving up in the wake of winters and think about spring. If spring is in your mind, you will not be able to look for the good things winters have to offer. Therefore, one must learn to wait till the last step in the staircase rather than giving up in the first step itself. We can achieve new vistas only if we believe that they exist. This belief has to begin in our mind and spirit and then we can physically achieve those new goals. For years, people have believed what they have seen. But, sometimes you got to see what you believe in. The dreams manifest in reality only when they are strong enough and deepest convictions are followed. This year start your life on a new note with renewed faith and trust in the universe.
