Napoleon Hill wrote the book on self-development, the actual book. There were a few before like, Wallace Wattles and James Allen, but Hill tied all the good stuff up into one epic book.
He wrote a lot on faith and I want to share it with you today because it’s sometimes at times like these – you only have to read the news to see what I mean – that faith can go a long way:
Over to Mr Hill.
Faith is the only cure, which gives life, power and action to the impulse of thought!
The foregoing sentence is worth reading a second time, and a third, and a fourth. It is worth reading aloud!
Faith is the starting point of all accumulation of riches!
Faith is the basis of all “miracles”, and mysteries which cannot be analysed by the rules of science!
Faith is the only known antidote for failure!
Faith is the internal unit, the “chemical” which, when mixed with prayer, gives one direct communication with unlimited intelligence.
Faith is the internal unit which changes the ordinary way of thinking, created by the limited mind of man, into the spiritual equivalent.
Faith is the only agency through which the cosmic force of Unlimited Intelligence can be taken and used by man.
If you think you are beaten, you are,
If you think you dare not, you don’t.
If you like to win, but you think you can’t
It is almost certain you won’t.
If you think you’ll lose, you’re lost,
For out in the world we find,
Success begins with a fellow’s will –
It’s all in the state of mind.
If you think you are outclassed, you are,
You’ve got to think high to rise,
You’ve got to be sure of yourself before
You can ever win a prize.
ife’s battles don’t always go
To the stronger or faster man,
But soon or late the man who wins
Is the man WHO THINKS HE CAN!
Thoughts become things, so guard your thoughts by not listening, reading or watching trash. Keep your goals at the forefront of your mind, have FAITH, take action and watch what happens.
And this week, when you’re thinking, THINK BIG! That’s the only positive thing I’ve ever read of Mr. Trump’s that rings true to me and I like thinking that way.
