CHAPTER 3-Faith

"But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for the one
who doubts is like a wave of the sea that is driven and
tossed by the wind. James 1:6

“FAITH is a state of mind which may be induced, or created,
by affirmation or repeated instructions to the subconscious
mind, through the principle of autosuggestion.” Napoleon Hill

“Why am I here?” is a commonly asked question or it may need
to be. Every one of us came into this world for a purpose, but
the problem or issue is that most people come up short in
finding the answer. Within each of us is an intangible force or
energy just waiting to be released. That force can and will
transform or transmute thoughts from desire into their physical
counterpart. Hills states that this is done by following the
instruction on auto-suggestion, planting those desires into the
subconscious mind convincing it to believe that you will receive
that which you ask. That belief turns into faith to have a definite
plan followed by action.

“Faith goes up the stairs that love has built and looks out the window
which hope has opened.” Charles Spurgeon,

“Repetition of affirmation of orders to your subconscious mind is the only
known method of voluntary development of the emotion of faith. Perhaps the
meaning may be made clearer through the following explanation as to the way
men sometimes become criminals. As stated in the words of a famous criminologist,
“When men first come into contact with crime, they abhor it. If they remain in
contact with crime for a time, they become accustomed to it and endure it. If
they remain in contact with it long enough, they finally embrace it, and become
influenced by it.” Napoleon Hill

Faith isn’t believing without proof –it’s trusting without reservation”
Willaim Sloane Coffin

Faith has taken me to the confidence that God has my life and soul completely
covered in the now and the future. With that faith, Connie and I worked through
the doubts, fears, setbacks, and challenges know we would have a wonderful life
together for 51+ years.

I remembered it on our 10th and 25th anniversary we asked a minister friend to
help repeat our vows to one another. On the 20th we decided we just barely had
each trained there was no need to start over, and yes, the training continues
for another 31 years.  

Faith is that which has fortified me these short months since Connie went home
and know she will be waiting at the gate for me to come home. This is faith that
will take me to success in network marketing there my heart desires. My choice is
to be here as long as it takes and never, never give up.

Thanks to Linda and Michael Dlouhy for beginning living examples of the faith that
moves mountains. A heart of gratitude to everyone who participates in the weekly

calls and brings the value of your faith to all of us.
