Chapter 3 Faith


The Second Step toward Riches

"Faith shows the reality of what we hope for; it is the evidence of things we cannot see." Hebrews 11:1.

Each of us practice Faith every day, we have faith that the bus will come on time to take us to work, we have faith that if we work the required hours we will receive remuneration at the end of the week. Both these examples are based on someone else performing actions and ethical actions at that. Ethical actions produce positive faith.

Hill had a son who was born without ears and without the necessary opening in the skull to allow passage of sound waves as in a normal person. The doctors predicted that Hill’s Son would be deaf and mute. Hill did not accept the doctor’s prognosis and he proceeded to set in motion the passionate desire that his Son would not only hear but also talk normally. He had “Faith” that his actions would produce the required goal of hearing and speech. Not only was this goal achieved but the Son went on to help others.

In the quote above it real sums up what faith is, the attainment of ideas and dreams which at conception are not visible in finite form, but through the six steps described in Chapter 2 of “Think and Grow Rich”, the creative imagination, autosuggestion, and Faith along with the other principle set out by Hill they will be achieved.

I had difficulty with step 6 of the six step process of Chapter 2. I could not visualise the final riches. Over a period of time and by the use of auto suggestion (self talk) also using meditation I have been able to now visualise the riches in my bank account for use as set out in the clearly written down statement of the goals I am wishing to attain. I had Faith in the Principles set out in think and grow rich.

Similarly I have Faith in the Mentoring For Free System, that by following and doing all the various steps I will obtain my Passionate desires.

It is with gratitude and thanks to Linda and Michael Dlouhy and all at Mentoring For Free for the guidance and constructive criticism that I have Faith to achieve my Passionate desires.
