Hebrews 11:1 tells us "Now faith is the substance of tings hoped for and the evidence of things not seen." But Hill states, "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.”
Thus we can learn that as Hill tells us, "FAITH IS A STATE OF MIND WHICH MAY BE INDUCED BY AUTO-SUGGESTION." WE thereforesee that a self-confidence formula which includes auto suggestion mixed with positive emotion becomes our substance of things hoped for and thus things which will be seen.
"Optimism is the faith that leads to achievement. Nothing can be done without hope and confidence." Helen Keller
It is through autosuggestion and our self-talk that we can develop the hope and confidence which becomes the foundatin for FAITH!
