Chapter 3 - Faith
Gregory Peck stated "Faith gives you an inner strength and a sense of
balance and perspective in life."
People come and go at Mentoring for Free. We have seen this happen
for years. Some stay but that is the minority. I believe the deciding
issue of whether they stay or not comes down to faith.
The people that stay at Mentoring for Free not only have faith in themselves with
the inner strength that they can make a good choice, they have that "sense of balance
and perspective." They have confidence and belief that there are still people in this
world that will help others.
The ones that come and go do not have that faith, that sense of balance
in making the right choices and they do not have the faith that someone would
help them for free. They are skeptical.
Stephen Curry stated "It doesn't matter where you come from, what you have
or don't have, what you lack, or what you have too much of. But all you need
to have is faith in God, an undying passion for what you do and what you choose
to do in this life, and a relentless drive and the will to do whatever
it takes to be successful in whatever you put your mind to."
Having faith is critical but we also have to follow through. We cannot just
think things will work, we have to do the work, to show that our faith is real.
