"Faith, acts promptly and boldly on the occasion, on slender evidence."
It's comforting to choose a path that seems well-lit and predictable. But, once in a while, we seem to know with inexplicable confidence that it's time to take a risk.

It is the beginning of everything you want in Life and the road to happiness. Develop it, practice it; from both your heart and your mind.
Ask why. Develop the why. Once the why is strong enough, the how will naturally present itself.

If you felt bad, you were probably trying to please someone else, and did not get the expected external response. Because if you do something that you know is good for you, it feels good. It is that simple. You can misuse the power of your mind, but not diminish its power.
