CHAPTER 3 FAITH: VISUALIZATION OF, AND BELIEF IN ATTAINMENT OF DESIRE
The Second Step toward Riches
FAITH is the head chemist of the mind. When FAITH is blended with the vibration of thought, the subconscious mind instantly picks up the vibration, translates it into its spiritual equivalent, and transmits it to Infinite Intelligence, as in the case of prayer.
This chapter is about the visualization of and belief in the attainment of our DESIRE, created in Chapter 2. The results we created from the other 5 Steps.
FAITH is created by repeated self-talk to the subconscious mind. Said enough with belief builds confidence. Hill says this is the only way to know to develop the emotion of FAITH.
How do we say our self-talk? Do we say just a few times or 100’s and 100’s of times?
Do we visualize the person we will become per the instructions of Step 2 of this chapter?
It is clear, after 80+ years and all the very successful people applying these steps, and the instructions following in these principles, what Hill is giving us works if we use them constructively. On the other hand, if we use them destructively, it will destroy just as readily.
Self-talk can lead us to peace and prosperity or to misery, failure, and even mental suicide.
Every one of us has more worldly goods than Gandhi. He had no money, no home and not even a suit of clothes, but he had POWER. How did he come by this power?
HE CREATED IT OUT OF HIS UNDERSTANDING OF THE PRINCIPLE OF FAITH, AND THROUGH HIS ABILITY TO TRANSPLANT THAT FAITH INTO THE MINDS OF TWO HUNDRED MILLION PEOPLE. – Napoleon Hill
How much effort have we made to learn the influences of FAITH?
Do we come here expecting results, but lack the desire to put in the effort required to get those results?
Or do we not even show up for these lessons or do we show up and not post lessons, nor participate?
We are not given the success we want. We are given the success we deserve.
Taquittee Cross gave us a very good picture of what can happen if we are COACHABLE. She said, “These Think and Grow Rich Lessons can give us a complete understanding of this book.” She is so right because she is COACHABLE. She wants to learn. She will do whatever it takes.
I am grateful to Linda and Michael for having created Mentoring For Free. I look at the skills taught here as a stepping stone to greater things for those who are COACHABLE. The Pro system is a good place to practice what we are learning so we can make the mistakes REQUIRED to become as successful as we DESIRE. Thank You, thank You, thank You Linda and Michael Dlouhy for this incredible system.
I am grateful to each person who comes to our weekly calls and makes them harmonious Mastermind groups. Thank You, thank You, thank You to each one of You. Without You, Mentoring For Free would not have become so successful. Thank You, thank You, thank You to each one of You.
PS: I am grateful to each person who downloads Success In 10 Steps and allows me to communicate with them. We to are creating a harmonious Mastermind group, working on our journey to success. Thank You, thank You, thank You to each one of You. I am humbled and very appreciative of our efforts to help each other succeed.
