Belief is the state of mind in which a person thinks something to be the case regardless of empirical evidence to prove that something is the case with factual certainty.
So, Milton are you telling me that despite factual data , I can believe something to be true anyways? Well, that is correct! I want to be able to explain what this all means. I am no science major or doctor, but what I do know is there are plenty of examples where this definition that you have been provided is true and played out in the interaction of humanity and life.
Let us start with a story of a young Jewish boy who was faced with an opportunity to not only win a woman, but treasure and respect as well. David before he was crowned King of the Jews was approaching a battle that his siblings were participating in, just bringing them lunch. When he was there he could hear the enemy talking all kind of smack (my interpretation) , this angered David and he wondered why no one had taken charge and made something happen.
“no one had taken charge and made something happen.”From the outside looking in, the person doing all this talking was a giant of a man, it was said that he stood 9 feet tall and had broad shoulders and a huge sword. David stood less than 6 foot and not quite the muscle make up as the giant. Facts you say this giant should be able to easily defeat any one including David, but the belief of David moved past facts into truth. If you don’t know the story, David kills Goliath this giant and takes his head , shield and sword, all while using a slingshot with a pebble. He was claimed as being a hero for his nation and went on to be one of the greatest Kings the Jews ever had.
I could share thousands of stories over time where belief overshadowed what facts are set before you. But I will from here give some coaching:
Milton is genuine, persistent, and sincere. There are very few things that detract Milton from his pursuit of what he believes in. His attitude is fantastic and professionalism top notch. -
