Faith + Work = Success


leaf cutter ants

It is not sufficient to hope for the best. It is not sufficient to be cheerful and optimistic. It is not sufficient simply to say, think or feel that things will come out all right. In addition, something tangible must be done to make things come out all right. The mind that simply hopes that things will change for the better is not using its power directly in producing that change. Hope is only passive. It looks in the right direction, but it does not act. It means well, but to change fate something more will be needed besides good intentions. The proper course to pursue is to turn hope into faith and combine faith with work and ability; then proceed to change conditions, circumstances and things as you wish them to be. You can. He who combines the highest faith with his greatest ability and the most thorough work may reach any goal in view.  ~ Christian D. Larson
