I believe that FAITH is so hard, for some, because we see it as mystical and ethereal.
It is really practical and can become automatic.
No matter what your spiritual belief, it is FAITH that makes it possible. For example: I am
a Christian (or because of the overuse of the word, I prefer follower of Jesus the Messiah)
because I have absolute FAITH that Jesus is who he said he was, and have accepted
that he took my place on the cross.
As another example: wherever you are right now stand up (I am assuming that if you are
reading this that you are not driving :) ). Now look for a chair. Sit down in it. You have just
demonstrated FAITH. Did you spend hours examining the chair? Did you ask your family
and friends if the chair would work? Did you examine multiple chairs to see if one was better
than another? No, you simply sat down. That is FAITH.
We all know that MFF works. Linda & Michael Dlouhy, Ken Klemm, Bob Shoaf... are all examples
that it works. We only need FAITH to make it work for us.
If you are in a "Five Pillars" company, you know that it is possible to achieve your dreams, because
others have already done so. We only need FAITH to make it work for us.
We already know that "self-talk" works because Michael Dlouhy says it is the secret to his success
every time he is asked. Well, that and Linda. We just to develop an emotional "self-talk" and have
FAITH that it will work for us and the possibilities are endless.
The examples are endless. What will you do? Just have FAITH.
Note: where I have said "you", "your", or "we", I meant "I". Yes, this lesson was for me.
Thank you Linda & Michael Dlouhy, Bob Shoaf, and the whole Mastermind for pouring into me.
