Chapter 3 - Faith

 

This Chapter is titled Faith the  "VISUALIZATION OF, AND BELIEF IN ATTAINMENT OF DESIRE"
which is basically talking about having FAITH in whatever we want to accomplish.

Hill states "It is a well known fact that one comes, finally, to BELIEVE whatever one repeats
to one’s self, whether the statement be true or false.

THOUGHTS WHICH ARE MIXED WITH ANY OF THE FEELINGS OF EMOTIONS,
CONSTITUTE A “MAGNETIC” FORCE WHICH ATTRACTS, FROM THE VIBRATIONS 
OF THE ETHER, OTHER SIMILAR, OR RELATED THOUGHTS."

As we have decided to use Network Marketing as our vehicle to
attain our desire we need to ask ourselves; do I have the faith,
do I believe I can do it, how am I going to know if my faith is
strong enough?

James 2 tells us that "Faith without works, is dead."

As Michael related to us on Mondays call about his BMW story
we could all see he had the faith as well as Linda had the faith
that they were going to win the BMW.  

How did Michael show his faith?  The same way we can show 
our faith in attaining whatever we desire -  by behaving as if that
desire was already a reality. 

Michael sat in that BMW everyday looking at the instruments,
feeling the leather upholstery,  seeing himself driving that car
and Linda believed enough to go out and buy the special key chain
so Michael could attach the keys of his newly won BMW onto the 
key chain.  They flew to the event without purchasing a return ticket
because they knew they would not need it.

How real is our belief?  Do we do the things that we know will
move our business forward?  Are we willing to take the time  
to get on the training calls?  Are we willing to put in the
time to advertise our business?  Are we willing to become uncomfortable
and share our products and business with other people?  Are we saying
our self talk?  Do we post a lesson on the Think & Grow Lessons
forum weekly?

There is an old saying, "Actions speak louder than words." 

Jas 2:14 states, "  What does it profit, my brethren, if someone says 
he has faith but does not have works? "

If we don't do the things we know will bring the results, all
we are doing is fooling ourselves.

Michael and Linda did the works,  they showed their belief by
their actions.  How about us? Are we really doing the works or are
we just going about the motions?  Are we stealing our own dreams 
by neglect or are we pursuing our dreams with passion and faith
and belief? 

The questions were - do I have the faith, do I believe I can 
do it, how am I going to know if my faith is strong enough?


I will know by looking at the actions I am taking on a daily basis.

Are we ready to buy a one way ticket, are we ready to purchase
a key chain,  Are we really ready to do whatever it takes?
