CHAPTER 3 FAITH: VISUALIZATION OF, AND
BELIEF IN ATTAINMENT OF DESIRE.

Read carefully the 3 following quotes defining faith”

Optimism is the faith that leads to achievement.
Nothing can be done without hope and confidence.
Helen Keller

Faith is taking the first step even when you don't
see
the whole staircase. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Faith is to believe what you do not see; the reward
of this faith is to see what you believe.
Saint Augustine

We come now to a key step in the 13 principles as
laid out by Napoleon Hill. We were told that “thoughts
are things” just waiting to be hatched. When thoughts
are transformed from an idea into a burning desire the
magic starts. Now comes the element call FAITH.  Faith,
an optimism of I can, I will, it’s mine, even when not
seen at the moment. Faith allows us to live in the now knowing
absolute the end goal is ready for us.

The emotions of FAITH, LOVE, and SEX are the most powerful
of all the major positive emotions. When the three are
blended, they have the effect of “coloring” the vibration
of thought in such a way that it instantly reaches the
subconscious mind, where it is changed into its spiritual
equivalent, the only form that induces a response from
Infinite Intelligence.

Helen Keller rightly said it, without faith we have nothing.
Just think how important faith is? You drive into a service
center to full up the car, you must have faith that is really
is gasoline. I am having surgery on my foot on Thursday, I
must have faith that Dr. Grimes (yes that is his name) will
know what he is doing. What about the doctor who will be
putting me to sleep, I must have faith he knows how to wake
me up.  Edwin Barnes had to have faith that he would be in
business with Thomas Edison before he jumped onto that freight
training. Every desire can be fulfilled when faith in liberty
applied.  

How do we find and develop FAITH? We do so by remembering faith
is a state of mind which may be induced, or created, by
affirmation or repeated instructions to the subconscious mind,
through the principle of autosuggestion. I think that sound just
like using a self-talk. It is in the repetition of saying our
self-talk 100’s, 1000’s of time, ingraining it into our
subconscious mind to where it became part of us.  

I have experienced the power of faith watching Connie battle the
disease working on her body. I have often told my friend Connie
my rubber ball she just keeps balancing back. I have felt my
faith expand in the time I have been on Mentoring for Free.
Hearing the lesson read on these calls and listening to
experiences of others. To feel the support of each of you on
the weekly calls. This place will build faith in oneself, in
the power of a mastermind, in business, and in the opportunities
to give back to others.

Thank you, thank you, thank you to Linda and Michael Dlouhy in
your faith to build and giver this system to those like me hungry
for accurate truthful information. A special thanks to Bob Shoaf
for friendship and support you give weekly.  To each of you who
have downloaded  the e-book “Success in 10 Steps” and are coachable
thank you, thank you, thank you!
