To begin my lesson I would like to refer to Mr. Napolean Hill’s definition of Faith:
“Faith is a State of Mind which may be induced by Auto Suggestion
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.”
First of all FAITH is the “eternal elixir” which gives life, power, and action to the impulse of thought!
i feel that the following sentences of Mr. Hill are the core of what Mr. Hill wants his reader to remember about FAITH.
FAITH is the stating point of all accumulation of riches!
FAITH is the basis of all “miracles,” and all mysteries which cannot be analyzed by the rules of science!
FAITH is the only know antidote for FAILURE!
FAITHi s the element, the “chemical” which, when mixed with prayer, give one direct communication with infinite intelligence.
FAITH is the element which transforms the ordinary vibration of thought, created by the finite mind of man, into its spiritual equivalent.
FAITH is the only agency through which the cosmic force of Infinite Intelligence can be harnessed and used by man.
EVERY ONE OF THE FOREGOING STATEMENTS IS CAPABLE OF PROOF!
