Faith to do the impossible regardless the odd.
For example climbing the mountain. Would you still want to climb the mountain if you don't believe you could do it? Unless you want to suicide, I don't think any rational people would want to.
It is the same when you are lost and completely alone in the vast ocean with no hope of being found by any ships. After few days you begin to suffer severe dehydration and hallucination.
It is tempting to drink salt water, or jumping into water and get yourself drown. You need to have faith to hold yourself no matter how impossible it seem.
Faith allow people to hope. And hope motivate people to keep surviving regardless the odds.
If you believe you can do it, you will do it. That's faith.
