Hill tells us that “If it be true that one may become a criminal by association with crime, (and this is a known fact), it is equally true that one may develop faith by voluntarily suggesting to the subconscious mind that one has faith. The mind comes, finally, to take on the nature of the influences which dominate it. Understand this truth, and you will know why it is essential for you to encourage the positive emotions as dominating forces of your mind, and discourage — and eliminate negative emotions.

A mind dominated by positive emotions, becomes a favorable abode for the state of mind known as faith. A mind so dominated may, at will, give the subconscious mind instructions, which it will accept and act upon immediately.” 

Hill also tells us that "THOUGHTS WHICH ARE MIXED WITH ANY OF THE FEELINGS OF EMOTIONS, CONSTITUTE A “MAGNETIC” FORCE WHICH ATTRACTS, FROM THE VIBRATIONS OF THE ETHER, OTHER SIMILAR, OR RELATED THOUGHTS.

A thought thus “magnetized” with emotion may be compared to a seed which, when planted in fertile soil, germinates, grows, and multiplies itself over and over again, until that which was originally one small seed, becomes countless millions of seeds of the SAME BRAND"! Isn't that exactly us in building our MLM business? We are the original seed and we are trying to multiply ourselves (duplication) over and over again attracting like minded people like a magnet to us until we have thousands of seeds that produce residual income.

So if that is true and i’m sure it is then there is a formula. First you develop your Faith by emotionalized self talk, that leads to BELIEF which leads to the important part and that’s taking ACTION. Getting laser focused and taking MASSIVE ACTION! And it seems like that is the hardest part for me. You see others doing it all the time, many who have never tried MLM before. So you have the belief that they can do it, BUT….do we have the belief that WE can do it? 

Small action steps might be just that, small but it’s still action. Michael tells us it’s hard to set a goal for a top rank because we have never made that kind of money. So we start small and aim for that first rank, then the next and then the next. When that faith leads to where we BELIEVE WE can do it and then take action the magic begins to take place. Wilkerson says in his book, The Prayer of Jabez “ It’s only what you BELIEVE will happen and therefore do next (ACTION) that will bring about a life change. 

The pharmacist who purchased an idea from the old doctor wouldn’t have spent his life savings on it if he didn’t BELIEVE it would work but if he hadn’t taken ACTION his money would have been gone and the world would have never tasted a coke.

Harv Eker says that 80% of your success comes down to when you believe it. You believe it when you have strengthened your faith by constant emotionalized self talk.

Thank you Linda and Michael Dlouhy for your belief in us and patience with us in never giving up on our success. And thanks to all my friends and mastermind partners for our great times together every week.
