Chapter 3 Faith


The Second Step toward Riches

Mathew 21:21 Jesus Replied, “I tell you the truth, if you have faith and do not doubt, not only can you do what was done to the fig tree, but also you can say to this mountain, Go, throw yourself into the sea and it will be done. If you believe, you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer.”

I believe there are two very powerful parts to this quote, faith and doubt. Faith is belief in yourself and also what the Universe (God) wants you to achieve through the dreams, ideas and hunches. Doubt is the negativity that creeps in and destroys dreams, etc.

Edwin Barnes had ever increasing faith that he would become the Business Associate of Edison built on his passionate desire. His faith overcame all his difficulties, he did not know Edison nor did he have the money for the fare to Orange. He never doubted that he would stand before Edison and place him n notice that he would be a Business Associate.

Darby witnessed the power of Faith in the conquering of his Uncle by a small black girl demanding 50 cents which her mother needed. Her faith was that she would receive the money provided that she stood her ground; in fact she reinforced the situation by advancing rather than giving ground.

All through my life I have had to face making decisions, the main things I have learnt are that you can achieve whatever your gaol provided you do not quit, you do not think that it is impossible and believe what you ask for in Self Talk you will receive.

I know there are some dreams I have failed to achieve, like my Doctorial Degree, this I believe was due to my doubting that what I had written was good enough. These days I do not doubt, if I have a dreams I first change it to a passionate desire and then have faith that what is necessary for its achievement will be given to me, even though at the onset I may not be in possession of all the specialised knowledge, finances, etc.

Following the principles clearly set out in Think and Grow Rich has been a guiding light through which I will attain my passionate desires so I will not die with my music in me. I also follow the Philosophy Michael Dlouhy is always telling us, “If you knew you could not fail, how differently would you live your life.” I would also add the following quote; “How You Do Anything Is How You Do Everything”.

My sincere thank youse to Linda and Michael Dlouhy for their continued guidance through the Mentoring For Free System. For their original inspiration and insight into what it could achieve in changing the overall concepts of Network Marketing. To those who contribute their brilliance each week in posting lessons and speaking up on the Wednesday Calls my thanks and gratitude.
