Recently in another chapter and another lesson Nick Harper wrote about the little engine that thought it could. As it moved along the the tracks and approached a big mountain that it had to climb it knew it would be a hard pull so it started repeating a phrase to itself….I think I can, I think I can,I think I can,I think I can,I think I can until it made it to the top and over the other side. All that was, was an affirmation that it actually could do what it thought it could do or self talk if you will. It’s faith was weak at the start of the mantra but the more those words were repeated as it climbed that mountain that faith grew and grew until what do you know, I’m halfway up the mountain. Then more and more self talk….I think I can I think i can…and then wow here I am at the top of the mountain.
Thats what we are trying to do, get to the top of that mountain that some of us have struggled with, some for quite a few years. We experienced failure and sometimes were disheartened looking for answers. We questioned our faith. We trusted the gurus and sent them our hard earned money expecting what they had to offer as being the magic bullet only to be disappointed once again.
And then in desperation we happen upon MFF but how could something for free be any good? Why would anyone want to give something any good away for free. We are skeptical and our faith is weak but as we stick our toe in the water and give it a little try it kind of makes sense. Then as we plug in more it starts to make a lot of sense. If we stay long enough and get though about three or four cycles of TAGR our lives began to change dramatically and we don’t even recognize that former self…..I have offered the ebook to a potential client who is still mentally trying to process in his mind how someone could give away anything so valuable for free. As that self talk continues that struggle to get to the top of the mountain get easier and easier until all of a sudden we are flying down the other side.
A lot of times when I am at the gym and I am on the third set of a lift I have doubts that I can get in all the reps. And tell myself that if I can at least get two thirds of that I will be happy. But when I start pumping and telling myself I think i can and all of a sudden it’s done and I did more reps than the first set and the whole time it wasn’t a physical thing, it was a head thing. So nice to know that we have the control of building our faith with our self talk.
If we go into prayer about sometime with doubt and fear that the prayer won't be answered it probably wont be but it we go in believing, trusting and believing that God will take care of it it will. It's all a head thing!
