Every person has the ability to be successful. Those who do try something new or create something are doing so because they have self-belief and faith in themselves. In order for us to have a conscious focus, we need to identify where our faith comes from. By giving our conscious mind a name; such as higher self or true self, we create a reality and can move past self doubt and self defeat and give our self to our faith.
In meditation we can identify with our true self. Once you are able to connect to your true self; there is a realization that you are being directed and guided by your higher mind or God mind and that you are not alone. In practicing mediation and in trusting our higher selves we are having faith that our true self is there to guide us and lead us to our success and our true path.
