CHAPTER 3 FAITH: VISUALIZATION OF, AND BELIEF IN ATTAINMENT OF DESIRE
The Second Step toward Riches

Napoleon Hill says, "The emotions of FAITH, LOVE, and SEX are the most powerful
of all the major positive emotions. The mixing, or blending, of these three
emotions has the effect of opening a direct line of communication between the
finite, thinking mind of man, and Infinite Intelligence."

Hill goes on to say, FAITH is created by our repeated autosuggestion. We have
found it requires self-talk at least a thousand times a day for as long as it
takes to gain complete faith in our ability to overcome any obstacle we
encounter without negative thoughts entering our subconscious mind. If we act on
the "hunches or inspirations" we receive, we will get past any obstacle in our
path.

The only way to fail is to quit. Michael has a list of over 100, so just chose
one, if quitting is Your DESIRE.

Hill suggests saying our self-talk is the only known method of voluntary
development of the emotion of faith.

When people begin committing crimes, if they continue a life of crime long
enough, they will begin embracing it and be influenced by their crimes.

So whatever we tell our subconscious mind, good or bad, our subconscious mind
will begin believing and we will be influenced by it.

To develop a BURNING DESIRE, as Barnes had in Chapter 2, we MUST say our self-
talk with emotion (given feeling) and mix it with total FAITH. Only then will
our subconscious mind eventually believe us and pass on to Infinite
Intelligence, the Universe or God, whichever one wishes to use.

Hill suggests we deceive our subconscious mind into believing we are already in
possession of what we DESIRE.  Our subconscious mind will transmute into its
physical equivalent any order given to it in a state of BELIEF or FAITH and that
order will be carried out.

To deceive our subconscious mind we must visualize in DETAIL all aspects of our
BURNING DESIRE.

We now have the method for putting into reality Napoleon Hill's statement;
"Anything we can conceive, we can achieve."

As Michael says, "How we do anything, is how we do everything." When a person
downloads Michael Dlouhy's book, Success In 10 Steps, they don't have a BURNING
DESIRE, FAITH or the concept of self-talk. So there must be a radical change.
The negativity MUST be eliminated and replaced with a positive mindset. A
mindset that "How we do anything, is how we do everything;" becomes a mindset
filled with positive thoughts mixed with emotion that will develop FAITH,
allowing a person to receive "hunches or inspirations" that lead them to where
they have said they want to go.

I am grateful to Linda and Michael Dlouhy for their BURNING DESIRE and FAITH
that has led to the most complete formula for success one can find anyplace, bar
none. It's a complete proven, duplicatable system that anyone can master, if
they have the DEISRE. Thank You, thank You, thank You Linda and Michael Dlouhy.

I am grateful to those who make up each training call and create a master mind
group as Napoleon Hill found when interviewing 500 of the richest men of his
time. Each of them belonged to a master mind group. Thank You, thank You, thank
You to each one of You.

PS: I am grateful for those who have chosen to be COACHABLE and are
communicating with me periodically. We are helping each other develop the
BURNING DESIRE and FAITH that allows those "hunches and inspirations" to come
our way.  Thank You, thank You, thank You to each one of You. I appreciate You
very much.
