True conviction is always first borne in the heart and spirit, and then it translates to the mind, which then translates into meaningful and purposeful action. The problem is, a lot of us think we have conviction when it is merely action driven by feelings or a spurt of idealism. That's when it eventually falls apart or we give up and drop out, because you see, our feelings can only last for so long. So I always try to pray, 'Dear God, birth in me true conviction.'
