Faith…. It’s a concept we all know.
But do we actually have an idea what faith really is?
What it means to have complete and utterly unwavering faith?
For the past two weeks I have been sitting on this chapter. Not being able to decide what to write to you about this chapter. I am having trouble telling you what is Think and Grow Rich about in chapter 3.
Let me explain. I realized somewhere in the past two weeks that I have no idea what faith actually is.
We are brought up thinking we know what it is.
But in actual fact I have no idea, or let me rephrase I had no idea.
I must have read this particular chapter more than ten times already. And after every time I read it I sit down, open a word document and started to type that very first word I started this blog post with, Faith…. And then I am stuck.
I thought about it extensively, I did research, I read many quotes and I meditated.
I think that with all the principles this one is absolutely my weakest. I don’t think I have faith, this is definitely the area in myself I should be working on, real hard.
Do you know there are 6 stages of faith one goes through in their life?
I did not know that either. But interestingly enough, most of us never even reach the level 6 of our faith in our entire lives.
I have to say, had I not read this amazing book by Napoleon Hill, had I never known that my faith was completely nonexistent.
It’s like being blind and not knowing that you can’t actually see.
Don’t be fooled to think that I am alone. I am not, I am actually part of the majority of people around the world.
You see, I am a born Christian, who is active in my faith from the day I can remember. I have been taught all my life that I have to have faith, and that my faith must be strong.
But never have I been taught how to have faith… nor how to make my faith grow big and strong…
That is where the massive difference comes in. An entire new world has opened up for me, and now I know what it really means to have faith, and how to have faith.
Faith is the eternal elixir which gives life, power and action to the impulse of thought.
Get your own copy of the book Think and Grow Rich. You will be amazed, just as I am at what you learn from him.
