Chapter 3 Faith

VISUALIZATION OF, AND BELIEF IN ATTAINMENT OF DESIRE

The Second Step toward Riches

 

The feeling and knowledge of faith carry tremendous power, wherever applied. Faith is fuel that drives us when our muscles are weak and our minds are tired, but our spirits are still on fire! Faith is the nourishment that will sustain us when the world seems to bear no fruit. Faith can be inspired but ultimately is found within each individual and therefore cannot be taken away. Faith is ours to discover, to lift us up, and to share with others so that they too may find faith in themselves. What do

 

es faith look like? This will be different for each individual. You may demonstrate faith through encouragement of others. Perhaps you persist at the one task that is key to your definite purpose but that you have not yet mastered. It could be the impassioned debates you have with others who doubt your purpose. Faith inspires action!

 

WHAT IS FAITH?

Faith is defined in the first verse of the faith chapter of the Bible, Hebrews 11: “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” The Greek word for faith is  in Strong’s Concordance, which means persuasion, conviction of religious truth, conviction of the truthfulness of God, or reliance on God. It comes from the, meaning to convince, to assent to evidence or authority, or to rely on by inward certainty.

Napoleon Hill Explains Faith Like this: the object is, naturally, to acquire the ability to transmute the intangible thought impulse of DESIRE into its physical counterpart, money. By following the instructions laid down in the chapters on auto-suggestion, and the subconscious mind, as summarized in the chapter on auto-suggestion, you may CONVINCE the subconscious mind that you believe you will receive that for which you ask, and it will act upon that belief, which your subconscious mind passes back to you in the form of “FAITH,” followed by definite plans for procuring that which you desire.

The method by which one develops FAITH, where it does not already exist, is extremely difficult to describe, almost as difficult, in fact, as it would be to describe the color of red to a blind man who has never seen color, and has nothing with which to compare what you describe to him. Faith is a state of mind which you may develop at will, after you have mastered the thirteen principles, because it is a state of mind which develops voluntarily, through application and use of these principles.

 

HOW DO WE RECEIVE FAITH?

Knowing how we obtain faith helps us to understand what faith is. It is not something that we just work up or find within ourselves.The method by which one develops FAITH, where it does not already exist, is extremely difficult to describe, almost as difficult, in fact, as it would be to describe the color of red to a blind man who has never seen color, and has nothing with which to compare what you describe to him. Faith is a state of mind which you may develop at will, after you have mastered the thirteen principles, because it is a state of mind which develops voluntarily, through application and use of these principles.

It Takes allot of training and doing and building and seeing your own results and the results of others to build a Definite Faith Base.Your Faith Determines Your Outcome in Life For the Positive and The Negative. Just think back to the time when you told yourself something and you believed it and it happen. It was was your faith in yourself that made it happen. Just as Jesus Use the illustration on the mustard seed.

 To be sure, faith the size of a mustard seed was better than no faith at all. And, they reasoned, according to Jesus, even this size faith could accomplish much. Examining faith can move mountains. saying. if someone's beliefs and confidence are strong enough, they can achieve something that is very difficult..

Just as electricity will turn the wheels of industry, and render useful service if used constructively; or snuff out life if wrongly used, so will the law of auto-suggestion lead you to peace and prosperity. or down into the valley of misery, failure, and death, according to your degree of understanding and application of it. If you fill your mind with FEAR, doubt and unbelief in your ability to connect with, and use the forces of Infinite Intelligence, the law of auto-suggestion will take this spirit of unbelief and use it as a pattern by which your subconscious mind will translate it into its physical equivalent.

THIS STATEMENT IS AS TRUE AS THE STATEMENT THAT TWO AND TWO ARE FOUR!

"As the book states this By Napoleon Hill"
