Chapter 3: Faith The second step toward riches
I actually listened to this 3 times this week. Being a blue it sure is hard sometimes to focus but this time I was listening and trying to find the true meaning that we are all supposed to see eventually to get what we need from Hills book.
But I will say that Faith is the number one thing that drives me. I have always had Faith that my son will talk one day and because of Faith I never gave up. He is doing incredible now. Not talking in full sentences but can sometimes let us know what he wants with words now. I know it is so exciting for him. When you see the excitement on his face when we finally understand what he wants because we heard it come from him.
I know Faith is very important and it is something I always kept dear to me. Faith that everything works out for the best and when something is not going as planned I have Faith that it was meant to be that way somehow and Faith that the outcome was the way it was supposed to turn out.
Some of us believe in God and some of us don't. Faith has a lot to do with this. I could have said there is no GOD. Because why would GOD give me such a special child to care for. But I turned it around and said GOD gave me this special child because he has Faith in me. Faith that I won't let him down.
I drank furniture polish at 18 months old and almost died. My family had Faith that I would make it through and of course, I did. I had Faith that I was here for a reason. I did not think it was to raise a special child. But I guess that is my calling and I know I am doing the best I can for him and I intend to make his life filled with fun and special things.
I am today named IBO Featured Member Of The Day and when I went to sleep last night I had a feeling I should look at my computer but I didn't. I woke up this morning and saw my picture up there. This is 4 times in one year. It took me 5 years to get there but I know that sharing and caring is the way and that's why I have landed this so many times this year.
Someone told me the other day that my problem not making any money was because I was helping too many people. That I should just care about myself and be making the money. I know that can't be true. I have Faith that helping and caring for others is going to get me all that I desire.
Faith brought me to where I am today and I will keep the Faith that life will bring an abundance of whatever it is that I need.
Thanks to Michael and Linda Dlouhy for helping us all reach the big picture and to my mentor Bob Soaf for never giving up on trying to reach me. It is an honor to know him and to be mentored by such a caring person. I always had the Faith that I would find someone out there just like him.
