Without faith in your desires and purpose, you will never achieve them; you have to believe to bring them into existence. “Faith is the head chemist of the mind. When faith is blended with thought, the subconscious mind instantly picks up the vibration, translates it into its spiritual equivalent, and transmits it to Infinite Intelligence, as in the case of prayer”. Faith is essential to induce the subconscious mind to seek the help of Infinite Intelligence. The power of Infinite Intelligence is essential to guide and inspire you to be successful.
Self-talk or autosuggestion repeated many times daily is the only way to get the belief that you will achieve what you truly desire. It is the key to unlocking the door to your subconscious mind and feeding it with the dominant thoughts and emotions that it will act upon. If you value your life, make sure that these thoughts and emotions are positive and constructive as the subconscious mind will act on both positives and negatives. You are its master and it will bring into reality your dominant thoughts and desires. If you feel and believe yourself doomed to failure, your subconscious mind will attract that reality from the universe. If you feel and believe that people are always against you, this is exactly what your subconscious mind will bring about. Hill says: “Thoughts that are mixed with any of the feelings of emotions constitute a magnetic force, which attracts other similar or related thoughts”.
If you give off positive thoughts and feelings, you will attract the same to you. So, give before you get. This is the philosophy of the Mentoring for Free system. You accept people where they are at and guide them to achieve the success they want by education, training and total openness. You do not seek to impose your agenda on them. This is what Hill is emphasizing in this chapter when he relates how the steel trust was born.
To sum up then; have faith in your own positive desires and purposes, show faith in others, and give before you get.
Regards and best wishes to all.
