Chapter 3 




  FAITH, the head chemist of the mind, controls your destiny. With the emotions of FAITH, LOVE, and SEX, being the most powerful of all the major positive emotions. When the three are blended in the subconscious mind, it can be changed into its spiritual equivalent, the only form that induces a response from the Universe. 

--Napoleon Hill 

  First, you have to know yourself, because Enemy #1 is your mind. You have to remove the weeds. You are NOT your mind. You are your words that come out of your mind. Your mind is NOT to be trusted. 

  We are born into this world as an empty container. 80% of brain development is before age 3. Made up of everything your learnt from other people. You should question everything you know. CHOICE is whether you believe it or not. Your mind is THEM every minute of the day. It’s their right or wrong belief. 

  AWARENESS is the first element of change. BOLDNESS is the second element of change. Your ACTION or INACTION is the particular file of your mind. Isn’t it funny how we are radically the same, but have different files in our mind. 

  The world is basically the same and WE give it meaning and change. Nothing is anything, until you make it something and make it a reality. We have different viewpoints from different files in our mind. 

  You have to get people to trust you. Your WORD becomes LAW, not what others THINK. You have to be less judgmental. You have to TRAIN your mind for and not against, because the files in your mind is always in SURVIVAL PROTECTION. The voice in your head is not you. Your mind is over worried (stressed out), which causes your bodyguard to say, “WHO CARES!!!” Which causes FEAR = ANXIETY = CONFUSION. Consciousness = choice in the present verses programming in the past = BEING HUMAN. 

  Your mind plays tricks on you. Saying, “I wish I was you, but I bet you don’t want to be like me.” Why does your mind have a bias toward the NEGATIVE? People go from problem to problem. The reality is: We will never fix all our problems! Then our mind creates one!!! Do I want to entertain that thought?  

  Instead, we should say to our mind, “Thank you for sharing.” You should constantly monitor your thoughts. Are you serving yourself or are you serving us, others, and the world? You are the captain of your Universe. Is your Universe EMPOWERING? or DISEMPOWERING? Install a virus protector in your head. Your mind is NOT your bodyguard. 

  --T. Harv Eker

  FAITH is the ability to see things that don't yet exist. FAITH, though, can turn difficulty into a reality, positive reality.

  -- Jim Rohn
