Chapter 3 - Faith
Faith is essential to be successful at anything. Setting a goal,
whether it is a personal or a business goal, will require faith to
make it happen.
If we don't have faith in our goal we will not put in the effort needed
to attain it.
Life is made up of choices and we have a choice if we want
to develop faith. As Hill points out "Faith is a state of mind
which you may develop at will." We may develop this faith at will.
So again, it comes down to making a choice to do or not to do.
Mary McLeod Bethune has said "Without faith, nothing is possible.
With it, nothing is impossible."
Hill writes "Repetition of affirmation of orders to your subconscious
mind is the only known method of voluntary development of the emotion
As Michael Dlouhy has shared with us the main reason for his success
is "self talk" or Repetition.
What we tell ourselves over and over will make us or break us.
Oliver Wendell Holmes, Sr. has said "It's faith in something and
enthusiasm for something that makes a life worth living.
It comes down choice.
As Henry Ward Beecher stated "Every tomorrow has two handles. We can
take hold of it with the handle of anxiety or the handle of faith."
Which handle will we choose?
