Chapter 3- Faith Visualization of and
Belief in Attainment of Desire
Faith is the eternal elixir which gives life, power and action to the impulse of thought.
A Quote for Napoleon Hill.
To have Faith one must take stock of their mental assets and liabilities. As I have done this, and as Napoleon Hill has said, I have found that I lack self-confidence. The Self-confidence formula that Mr. Hill has given us in this chapter will be something that I will repeat every day from this time forward.
It is as follows:
First, I know that I have the ability to achieve the object of my Definite Purpose in life, therefore, I DEMAND of myself persistent, continuos action toward its attainment, and I here and now promise to render such action.
Second, I realize the dominating thoughts of my mind will eventually reproduce themselves in outward, physical action, and gradually transform themselves into physical realty, therefore, i will concentrate my thoughts for thirty minutes daily, upon the task of thinking of the person I intend to become, thereby creating in my mind a clear mental picture of that person.
Third, I know through the principle of auto-suggestion, any desire that I persistently hold in my mind will eventually seek expression through some practical means of attaining the object back of it, therefore, I will devote ten minutes daily to demanding of myself the development of SELF-CONFIDENCE.
Fourth, I have clearly written down a description of my DEFINITE CHIEF AIM in life, and I will never stop trying, until I shall have developed sufficient self-confidence for its attainment.
Fifth, I fully realize that no wealth or position can long endure, unless built upon truth and justice, therefore, I will engage in no transaction which does not benefit all whom it affects. I will succeed by attracting to myself the forces I wish to use, and the cooperation of other people. I will induce others to serve me, because of my willingness to serve others. I will eliminate hatred, envy, jealousy, selfishness, and cynicism, by developing love for all humanity, because I know that a negative attitude toward others can never bring me success. I will cause others to believe in me, because I will believe in them, and in myself.
I will sign my name to this formula, commit it to memory, and repeat it aloud once a day, with full FAITH that it will gradually influence my THOUGHTS and ACTIONS so that I will become a self-reliant, and successful person.

P.S. By repeating this Formula aloud every day at least once, I will discover that there are no limitations to the mind except those we acknowledge, Quote by Napoleon Hill and what I believe is true.
