I think I see what you mean. If I have faith in myself, I will say "I can do this" and "I can love this" "I can love me". Then, the most amazing gift will be to suddenly wake up and realize that our faith in God has grown too, because God promises that "inasmuch as ye have done to the least of these, my brethren, ye have done it unto me".

Is faith faith then? Will having faith in one's self eventually lead to faith in God?

Faith is simple. Ask a child. Some of us grow too far away from our childlike nature.

Have you ever been around a person who worships himself? How about a person who thinks of others? Whom would you say is the happiest and most fulfilled?

Those who look to God and think of others find that God looks after them. Therefore a part of faith is just that, and as god looks after us, our faith grows because we cannot help but acknowledge his hand in all things. I testify that his hand is recognizable.
