In connection with this, consider again the statement, ALL THOUGHTS WHICH HAVE BEEN EMOTIONALIZED, (given feeling) AND MIXED WITH FAITH, begin immediately to translate themselves into their physical equivalent or counterpart.


Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see. (Hebrews 11:1)


The emotions of FAITH, LOVE, and SEX are the most powerful of all the major positive emotions.


I could really put so many scriptures into this lesson.  The bible talks of these three emotions in great abundance. Song of Solomon is strictly on sex itself. Faith can move mountains. Kingdoms have been won and lost because of love or a loss of love. And sex, well… it’s the industry leader of the internet today. Sex is in the majority of advertising. In the news, the saying goes, if it bleeds, it leads. And there is also another saying but this is in regards to marketing: sex sells.


And so, faith really ties a strong spiritual element into things. It’s trusting in the unknown. A lot of people hit up faith at the end of their run, the foxhole prayers, at it is said. Basically, with nothing else to give, they turn to God in hopes of rescuing them from their own demise.


I remember in my younger years, drinking and then having to drive home. Praying the foxhole prayers all the way home. And in the end, I got home and would repeat my folly not too long after. Why would I fail? Lack of focus. I didn’t dwell on the goal of not repeating my mistake. I didn’t dwell on the good I wanted to create. There was no positive self talk. I didn’t take the thoughts further. I wasn’t motivated to do so. Not by myself or by my circumstances.


A thought thus “magnetized” with emotion may be compared to a seed which, when planted in fertile soil, germinates, grows, and multiplies itself over and over again, until that which was originally one small seed, becomes countless millions of seeds of the same brand!


So we are always producing seeds. What brand am I making? And if you notice, rebranding is possible. If I don’t like the brand I am producing, it can be changed. Pepsi changed their logo a few times since the brand was created. And they’re not the only ones. Can you imagine if Mario and Donkey Kong would have remained the 8-bit characters into this new age of gaming? Rebranding is a natural process.


To accomplish successful rebranding of myself, the self-talk is essential. Giving of me to myself and to others is essential. Help others to be successful gains success of self. I’ve met some who just didn’t understand that idea. What coach wants to see their students fail? And when a coach’s players are successful, is not the coach successful?


Have faith in your desire. Have confidence in what you hope for and  be assured in what you do not see.
