Chapter 3 Faith

Faith is defined as: 1. complete trust or confidence in someone or something.  
2. strong belief in God or in the doctrines of a religion, based on spiritual apprehension rather than proof.

SCRIPTURAL DEFINITION
"Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen" Hebrews 11:1. 
Faith is the connecting power into the spiritual realm, which links us with God and makes Him become a 
tangible reality to the sense perceptions of a person.

All down the ages, the religionists have admonished struggling humanity to “have faith” in this, that, and the other dogma 
or creed, but they have failed to tell people HOW to have faith. They have not stated that “faith is a state of mind, and 
that it may be induced by self-suggestion.”

A mind dominated by positive emotions, becomes a favorable abode for the state of mind known as faith. A mind so dominated may, at will, give the subconscious mind instructions, which it will accept and act upon immediately.

FAITH IS A STATE OF MIND WHICH MAY BE INDUCED BY AUTO-SUGGESTION

Have Faith in yourself; Faith in the Infinite.

FAITH is the “eternal elixir” which gives life, power, and action to the impulse of thought!

FAITH is the starting point of all accumulation of riches!

FAITH is the only known antidote for FAILURE!

It is a well known fact that one comes, finally, to BELIEVE whatever one repeats to one’s self, 
whether the statement be true or false. If a man repeats a lie over and over, he will eventually 
accept the lie as truth. Moreover, he will BELIEVE it to be the truth. Every man is what he is, 
because of the DOMINATING THOUGHTS which he permits to occupy his mind. Thoughts which a man 
deliberately places in his own mind, and encourages with sympathy, and with which he mixes any 
one or more of the emotions, constitute the motivating forces, which direct and control his 
every movement, act, and deed!     -Hill

Lately I've seen so many people worried...worried about this virus, worried about their job, worried about bills...etc.
I wonder if they believe that they're creating their own reality?  There was a time when I allowed negative thoughts to 
occupy my mind, and it never failed...negative things kept happening!  I did not understand self-suggestion at that time.
I thought that I had Faith in myself, but there was too much negativity around me.  I was in a really bad relationship,
I was working at a factory filled with close-minded people, and most of all I wasn't involved in personal development.

Life today is so much better, I constantly speak positivity into my life and the lives of others!  Since joining MFF I've 
become a lot more successful in ALL aspects of life!

Thank you Linda and Michael Dlouhy for teaching me the real definition of Faith and auto-suggestion...it's made a huge difference in my life really understanding how it actually works!!!  Thank you to all of my friends here at MFF it's a pleasure being a part of this powerful mastermind!
