Will and Faith - it’s a beautiful thing

Richard Devos, co-founder of Amway, once said, “The only thing that stands between a man and what he wants from life is often merely the will to try it and the faith to believe that it is possible.”

Will and faith; two powerful little words that, unfortunately, are not often used in the marketplace these days.

Human will is an anthropological alloy forged of spirit, desire, and conscience. It is an invisible force deep inside of you that makes things happen in your life. Faith, it has been said, is believing in something you can’t see. Faith in yourself is faith in your will.

But if will is the atomic power of your existence, without faith, it’s inert.

If you want to see a demonstration of will and faith working together, go watch a small business owner. Here’s what you’ll see: A will that drives them to create things and accomplish feats lesser mortals are barely able to dream about, in tandem with a faith that allows them to keep going when most others would accept defeat.

Small business owners are like bumblebees: they don’t know that they aren’t supposed to fly. And yet they do. Powered by will, on the aerodynamics of faith, small business owners fly their dreams every day.

It’s a beautiful thing.
