Never Give Up Quotes

“Pain is temporary. Quitting lasts forever.”
~ Lance Armstrong

“If you quit once it becomes a habit. Never quit.”
~ Michael Jordan

“It’s always too soon to quit.”
~ Norman Vincent Peale

“Age wrinkles the body; quitting wrinkles the soul.”
~ Douglas MacArthur

“Effort only fully releases its reward after a person refuses to quit.”
~ Napoleon Hill

“Most people who succeed in the face of seemingly impossible conditions are people who simply don’t know how to quit.”
~ Robert Schuller

“Success seems to be connected with action. Successful people keep moving. They make mistakes, but they don’t quit.”
~ Conrad Hilton

“No man is ever whipped until he quits in his own mind.”

“Most people give up just when they’re about to achieve success. They quit on the one-yard line. They give up at the last minute of the game, one foot from a winning touchdown.”

Never Give Up

Why can’t you quit and go back to your old lifestyle? For one, once you quit on a major decision, it becomes a habit. A bad habit. Now, to accomplish anything, you have to quit the habit of quitting. Wow, and getting dizzy. Once the habit is developed it becomes the easiest thing you will do. It becomes easier every time you do it. You will never attempt anything hard ever again. Every time something becomes difficult, you will quit. Here is a lesson I learned early on and have passed it on to my children. Life is hard and it is not fair. You must learn to persevere and drive on when everything in your mind is telling you to give up.

You must have a strong mindset to change your lifestyle, become more self-confident, and be successful. A strong mind is always looking to grow. If you can develop your mind into a growth mindset, you will not quit.

Just Keep Going

If you’ve decided to do anything significant, at some point you will think about quitting. We have all been there. These thoughts are at their greatest frequency just before you are about to have a breakthrough. All you have to do to be successful is turn the corner or take another step. If you just drive one more mile you will find the answer. If you ever get to the point where you’re considering giving up and returning to your old lifestyle, think of WHY you wanted to change.

Remember WHY And Never Give Up

To reiterate, when you make that life-changing decision at some point you will think about quitting. Whatever you decide to do is going to seem harder than he originally thought. The thoughts of quitting will permeate your brain if you do not have a strong mindset. Always remember WHY you started, lean on your teammates, and always move forward.

Like the movie character, Rocky Balboa said, “The world ain’t all sunshine and rainbows. It’s a very mean and nasty place and I don’t care how tough you are it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it. You, me, or nobody is gonna hit as hard as life.” So when life hits you hard, take it, smile, and keep moving forward.

Have you ever gotten to the point where you felt like quitting? What did you do to break through and succeed? Leave a comment below and let me know your thoughts.

“A goal without a plan is just a wish.”
~ Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

“By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail.”
~ Benjamin Franklin

10 Quotes About Planning For The Future

Now that you have your desire or definite purpose you want to tap into your imagination to help create your plan for the future. I discussed in last week’s post how your imagination can be thought of as your workshop where your plans are created and organized. I have also talked about in previous posts the six steps for turning your thoughts into reality. The formation of a practical plan is one of the steps.

  • Find a group of like-minded individuals to help you create your plan.
  • Decide what form of compensation that you will trade for their help.
  • Meet with the group at least twice a week.
  • Maintain perfect harmony between yourself and every member of your group.

You Will Need Help Planning

This group is what is known as a “Master Mind” group. It can consist of as many people as you may need. One person might suffice or you might need many more to tap into their “specialized knowledge.” Let’s face it, it is extremely difficult to accomplish anything alone. We simply don’t have all the knowledge necessary to create our plans for the future.

“Our goals can only be reached through a vehicle of a plan, in which we must fervently believe, and upon which we must vigorously act. There is no other route to success.”
~ Pablo Picasso

“Setting a goal is not the main thing. It is deciding how you will go about achieving it and staying with that plan.”
~ Tom Landry

Everything begins in the mind as a thought. It is going to take a solid, practical plan to transform that thought into an actual physical item, such as money. Once you have your plan, go to work. Do something every day and continue to take advice from your “Master Mind” group.

“Good fortune is what happens when opportunity meets with planning.”
~ Thomas Edison

“You can always amend a big plan, but you can never expand a little one. I don’t believe in little plans. I believe in plans big enough to meet a situation which we can’t possibly foresee now.”
~ Harry S. Truman

You Never Plan To Fail, But It Happens

Your first plan might not be your best plan and you find it doesn’t work. No worries most first plans fail. Henry Ford built two automobile businesses that failed before he started the Ford Motor Company. Thomas Edison failed 10,000 times before he invented the light bulb. If you fail, go back and redo your plan and try again. Keep reworking your plan until you find one that works.

“A good plan violently executed now is better than a perfect plan executed next week.”
  ~ George S. Patton

“Unless you have a definite, precise, clearly set goals, you are not going to realize the maximum potential that lies within you.”
~ Zig Ziglar

Working on your plan will help prevent procrastination, self-doubt, and anxiety. As you continue to work on your plan you will build belief in yourself and your plan for the future. As your belief turns to faith then nothing can stop you.

“Plans are of little importance, but planning is essential.”
~ Winston Churchill

“Planning is bringing the future into the present so that you can do something about it now.”
~ Alan Lakein

Why Setting Goals Is Important

Who actually writes down goals? Well, the best answer is, successful people. Did you know that 96% of all the wealth created in the world is created by 1% of the population? These are the people that are extremely successful in building businesses and making money. By comparison, I recently heard that only 1% of people actually write down their goals. One could deduct that the 1% who are writing down their goals are also the 1% creating 96% of the wealth. For example, in my post last week on becoming an expert, I listed some habits of successful people. One of those habits is that successful people are goal-oriented. This is a great reason why setting goals is important. Taking this all in, I think it’s time we started writing some goals.

Do you need direction in your life? Are you uninspired and procrastinate? My course will show you how to properly set goals and change your life. Goals will put purpose back into your life.

What Are Goals

What are goals? Simply put, goals are just things that you want. Decide on some things that you want and write them down. Now you have some goals. For example, you might want more money, a bigger house, or fame. Maybe you want a better relationship or actually be in a relationship. Whatever you want, write it down.

They must have an end date. By setting an end date, you will stay on track to accomplish them. It helps you do a little bit every day to keep moving forward. You will also be able to track your progress towards reaching your goal. For example, by December 31, 2020, I have earned $1,500,000 profit in my businesses. I can now see how close or far I am to accomplishing it. This allows me to look at my plan and see if it’s working.

goals-important-dragon-boat-race

Methods

One method of staying on track with your goals is called, “The Seinfeld Method.” In this method, you get a large yearly calendar and hang it on a prominent wall. Establish your goal and your plan. Every day that you do something in your plan and work toward your goal, put a big red “X” on that date. The purpose is to establish a chain and never break the chain.

Another method is to put two jars on your desk. One jar is filled with marbles, paperclips, etc., and the other is empty. Every time you do something towards accomplishing your goal, move the object to the empty jar. This is a great method for accomplishing them. For example, A lot of salespeople use this method when they have a goal of making X amount of sales calls a day.

The Person You Become

What I like most about setting goals and working towards obtaining them, is what I become from the process. Who will you become by focusing on your goals? What kind of person would you be after working on your plan? Like me, you will change. By focusing on them you will begin to get a direction in your life. It will give you a purpose and you will find you are better because of it. This to me is the most important aspect of goal setting, what you become, and another reason why setting goals is important.

Imagination Is More Important Than Knowledge

Imagination is more important than knowledge is a bold statement. Last week I talked about specialized knowledge and how to organize and direct knowledge to make it powerful. Today I’m continuing with the 13-steps to gain riches as written in the book, Think and Grow Rich, by Napoleon Hill. In his book, Hill gives us 13-steps to acquire wealth. The same steps and techniques can be used to acquire anything. This is the fifth step, imagination, and how imagination is more important than knowledge.

Happy Valentine’s Day! My wife and I have been together for 30 years and are happier than ever. Here are some tips on how we keep our relationship fresh and exciting. Get your FREE Relationship Tips Today!

The Importance Of Imagination

One of my favorite sayings is, and I say it a lot, is everything begins in the mind. Disneyland, McDonald’s, Apple, great novels, music, and movies all started in someone’s mind. They began as a thought and with imagination became an idea.

Imagination is the workshop where people formulate their plans. The imaginative part of your mind is what spurs you into action. Without imagination, the Wright brothers would have never gotten off the ground and shown us we could fly. You are only limited by the use of your imagination.

Two Forms Of Imagination

There are two forms of imagination in your mind, synthetic and creative. Synthetic imagination creates nothing. It works with the information it is given, your observations, education, and experience. This is where you can organize old concepts into new combinations and plans.

https://unsplash.com/@kellysikkema

Creative imagination is when your finite mind is connected to Infinite Intelligence. Hunches and inspirations are received by your creative imagination. It only works when your mind vibrates at an exceedingly fast rate, such as when you focus on a strong desire (your definite purpose) and mix it with emotion. It is through emotion that you increase your mind’s rate of vibration.

The Faculty Of Creative Imagination

Great men and women of the world in all walks of life owe their success to the faculty of creative imagination. They knew how to utilize their minds to turn their definite purpose from an idea into reality. Your imagination just like your body becomes stronger with use. Your imagination like your muscles become weaker through inaction.

To achieve your goals, you must first focus on developing your synthetic imagination. It is necessary for forming your plans. Once your plans are in your synthetic imagination you must commit them to paper. Writing your plans is the first step in converting your thoughts into your reality.

Take Control Of Your Life! My Courses Give You What You Need.

Successful People Use Their Imagination

Ideas are the product of imagination. Imagination is more important than knowledge because knowledge comes from your imagination. Most people, even the most successful, didn’t know how to take their ideas and make them work. They used imagination, both synthetic and creative to transform their ideas into reality.

Use your synthetic imagination to formulate your plans on how to achieve your goals. Develop your creative imagination to provide the inspiration and ideas from Infinite Intelligence. Would you like to be in a better place in life this time next year? If so, find your definite purpose, write down a plan for how to make it happen, and begin developing your imagination. We live in an unlimited universe so anything can happen.

Becoming An Expert Episode 29

In this podcast, Becoming An Expert Episode 29, I want to talk about what it takes to become an expert. Would you like to be considered an expert in your field? What are some of the advantages of being known as an expert? 

  1. You can charge a higher rate.
  2. People have more confidence and trust in you.
  3. It’s easier to grow your client list.
  4. It helps in marketing what you have to offer.
  5. Etc.

Are You Struggling With Self-Confidence? I Have Created A Course To Help You Find Yours!

Becoming An Expert Episode 29

People who are considered experts in their field are also some of the most successful. Author Stephen King is an expert in the genre of horror fiction. If you wanted to begin writing horror fiction novels, he would be a good source. In the field of business, Richard Branson would be considered an expert. He has taken a small record store and turned it into several other highly successful businesses. When I’m thinking about American football one name comes to mind, Tom Brady. Because of his success, he would be considered an expert on being a quarterback as well as on becoming a champion.

The thing about becoming an expert and being successful is there are no shortcuts. I know today, living in our fast food society, we want everything right now. Unfortunately, striving to be the best takes time. No one is born an expert. Your gift is inside you when you’re born but you must develop that gift. Becoming an expert only happens through training and experience. It is said that to be an expert at anything you must do it repeatedly for at least 10,000 hours. When I was a Special Agent with DEA, I was considered an expert in narcotics trafficking and smuggling techniques. I didn’t have that knowledge when I was hired or even after I graduated from the Academy. It took many years of studying and experience to become an expert.

Habits Of Successful People

As I was researching this post, I realized that successful people tend to have the same habits. In his book, Think and Grow Rich, Napoleon Hill spent 20 years studying the richest and most successful men in America at that time. He came up with 13 qualities that all these men shared. I came upon an article on the website weekplan.net which lists 50 habits of successful people. Here are a few of those habits.

  1. They are early risers.
  2. Meditation.
  3. Love of reading.
  4. They spend time on focused thinking.
  5. Exercise is a part of their day.
  6. Their network contains like-minded individuals.
  7. They set goals.
  8. Multiple sources of income.
  9. They avoid things that waste time.
  10. They consider problems as gifts.

Developing A Mastermind Group With Specialized Knowledge

I’m continuing my posts based on the 13 steps for acquiring wealth. Napoleon Hill in his book, Think and Grow Rich, discussed the 13 common steps successful men used to acquire their wealth. Today, I’m going to talk about developing a mastermind group with specialized knowledge. This is the fourth step for acquiring wealth or in accomplishing your goals.

Valentine’s Day is coming! My wife and I have been together for 30 years and are happier than ever. Here are some tips on how we keep our relationship fresh and exciting. Get your FREE Relationship Tips Today!

Developing A Mastermind Group With Specialized Knowledge

There are two types of knowledge, general and specialized. General knowledge is of little use in accomplishing anything. It’s great to have, but it won’t get you anywhere towards accomplishing your goals. Specialized knowledge is organized and intelligently directed through practical plans of action. Knowledge is not power but only potential power. Knowledge becomes power when it’s organized and directed.

Education

Hill believed that our educational system is flawed. It gives students knowledge but never teaches them how to organize and use that knowledge. For example, many college graduates don’t work in their field of study. They spend four years gaining knowledge of which most is of little use to them.

Don’t get me wrong I’m not against education. I’m glad that I went to college and that my two daughters are currently attending universities. The knowledge that we learned has made us better people. That being said, the truth is, I was never taught how to use that knowledge to accomplish something.

mastermind-specialized-knowledge-three-friends-laptop
https://unsplash.com/@wildlittlethingsphoto

Specialized Knowledge

This is why it is important to develop a mastermind group with specialized knowledge. Most people have general knowledge and ideas. What they lack is the specialized knowledge to turn their idea into money. For example, an inventor knows how to build things but doesn’t know how to market or sell what they’ve built. They don’t know how to manage employees or of potential legal issues.

Mastermind Group

How can they overcome these obstacles and lack of knowledge? Form a mastermind group and bring in people with the specialized knowledge they lack. They can use that knowledge and organize it into a definite plan of action. Their next step is to go to work.

They can continue to add on to their mastermind group by finding others with specialized knowledge they can put to use. Successful people don’t stop acquiring specialized knowledge. I love to learn both general and specialized knowledge. Learning keeps me alive and I’ll only stop learning when I die.

Steps

To be successful in acquiring wealth or accomplishing a goal you need to:

  1. Form a team. Look for and find like-minded people with the specialized knowledge that you don’t have;
  2. Work together towards a definite purpose;
  3. Organize the specialized knowledge and put it to use;
  4. Form practical plans for accomplishing your definite purpose;
  5. Put action to your plans and work in harmony.

Follow the above steps and you will get closer to your goals every day.

Final Thoughts

Developing a mastermind group with specialized knowledge is just one of the steps on your journey to success. Don’t try to take your journey alone. No one knows everything and successful people become so as a team. Write down the knowledge that you do not have and begin looking for people with specialized knowledge. Develop your mastermind group and go do something great.

Episode 28 How To Overcome Self-Doubt

I’ve talked about this in several previous articles and want to discuss it more thoroughly today. I’m talking about those little creatures that hide deep inside our minds. The ones that pop up at the worst of times. Their only function is to prevent you from living the life you so richly deserve. Yes, I am talking about those dreaded “Doubt Demons!” They are there, dug in deep and camouflaged, waiting for the right time to come out. It is imperative to stifle these demons. If at all possible, they should be eradicated.

Take Control Of Your Life! My Courses Give You What You Need.

Like all demons, they are created by fear. They are particularly active right after you make a decision to change yourself for the better. Have you ever tried to lose weight and began to get cravings for unhealthy foods? Doubt Demons. If you’ve ever attempted to get a promotion, you might have started noticing the quality of the other candidates. You begin to compare yourself with them and believe that they are better. Doubt Demons. Did you start a business for financial freedom? After you made that decision were you engulfed in fear, asking yourself, “how will I pay the bills?” Doubt Demons.

Where They Come From

Any thought you have that fills you with fear is placed there by the Doubt Demons. Where do they come from? Unfortunately, these Doubt Demons can be given life inadvertently. When we are young and our thoughts are forming, we are very vulnerable. Many times our Doubt Demons are placed into our subconscious mind by adults who don’t realize the harm they are doing. Often your parents, teachers, etc. have tried to protect you from disappointment. They say things like, “he’s just shy,” “she’s not a good test taker,” or “it takes money to make money.”

Statements

Any statement such as the ones above gives life to these Doubt Demons. Imagine what will happen if you want to ask out the girl of your dreams but you been told that you are shy. You want to go to the college of your choice but are “not a good test taker.” Doubt Demons are not exclusively given life just when we’re young. They can also be placed in us as adults by our coworkers and friends. Have you ever told a friend about a big dream? If their response was less than enthusiastic, it gave life to your Doubt Demons.

Do you want some tips and techniques to control your Doubt Demons? Listen to my podcast above, Episode 28 How To Overcome Self-Doubt.

5 Techniques For Using Auto-Suggestion

The book I’m reading for January is Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill. It’s a fascinating book written in the 1930s. Hill devoted 25 years of his life and spoke with 500 successful and wealthy men. He discovered 13 steps that all the men had in common and used to obtain their wealth. This is my second time reading this book and Hill says it takes three times to fully understand the content. Also, you must faithfully complete the exercises he lays out to get the most out of the book. In this chapter, he writes about 5 techniques for using auto-suggestion to obtain what you desire.

5 Techniques For Using Auto-Suggestion

Auto-suggestion is the third step to obtaining what you desire. I wrote about steps one and two, Desire and Faith, in my last two blog posts. When talking about auto-suggestion, you must understand how your conscious and subconscious mind works. All suggestions and self-administered stimuli reach our mind to your five senses. Auto-suggestion becomes a bridge between your conscious and subconscious mind. Your dominating thoughts are contained in your conscious mind. By using auto-suggestion or positive affirmations, they will move into your subconscious mind and influence you into action.

Your Conscious Mind

Everything you perceive through your five senses is stopped by your conscious mind. Your conscious mind has the power to pass these perceptions to your subconscious mind and it also has the power to reject them. The conscious mind cannot differentiate between positive and negative perceptions. Whatever thoughts are dominating your conscious mind will be passed to your subconscious mind.

techniques-auto-suggestion-purple-yellow-sphere

Your Subconscious Mind

Your brain is built so you have complete control of what enters your subconscious mind. Whether they are positive thoughts or negative thoughts is up to you. You can control the type of thought you want to allow into your subconscious mind. Think of your thoughts like seeds. Positive thoughts will grow positive results (flowers). On the other hand, negative thoughts will grow negative results (weeds).

The five techniques for using auto-suggestion are:

  1. Write down a statement of what you desire and when you want to have it. Next, write what you are willing to give up and your plan for obtaining it.
  2. Read your statement aloud twice a day; once in the morning and once before going to bed.
  3. Close your eyes and see yourself having what you desire.
  4. Feel the emotions that you will feel when you obtain it.
  5. Have faith that everything you wrote in your statement will come true.

Faith

By feeling the emotions of having what you desire you will communicate your desire directly to your subconscious mind. Closing your eyes and seeing yourself in possession of your desire, along with feeling the emotions, will eventually lead to giving you the spirit of faith. Go back and read last week’s blog post to understand the importance of faith. Without faith, your statement is just words. This is the reason most people fail to obtain their desires; they never develop faith.

Take Control Of Your Life! My Courses Give You What You Need.

5 Auto-suggestion Techniques

These 5 techniques for using auto-suggestion are necessary to get what you desire. You are applying the principle of auto-suggestion. Faith is your strongest emotion and your subconscious mind will act upon your faith. It is normal to be skeptical whenever you are approached with a new idea. It sounds too easy but the power of auto-suggestion will turn your skepticism into belief. Eventually, your belief will turn into faith.

Control Is In Your Hands

You are the master of your destiny. You and only you determine the life you want to live. The dominating thoughts in your conscious mind passed through to your subconscious mind determines your actions. In turn, your actions will determine your reality. If you want to change your life, it can happen with these 5 techniques for using auto-suggestion.

As always, if you enjoyed reading this post like, follow, and comment. Let me know if you have ever used these five techniques for auto-suggestion. If you want to make a change or need any help, send me an email, and we can set up a time for a call. You can check out my courses at the link above.

Perseverance Is The Key To Success

Do you ever wonder, why isn’t anything easy? Wouldn’t it be so nice if we could go through life without any struggles? Especially during these trying times in which we are currently living. Unfortunately, that doesn’t happen because life itself is a struggle and it takes strength and perseverance to get by. People who succeed in life are persistent. They learn how to improvise, adapt, and overcome. This is a phrase that Clint Eastwood made famous in his movie, Heartbreak Ridge. Perseverance is the key to success.

Perseverance Is The Key To Success

You can’t get something great without giving something up. The struggles that we go through are necessary in order to accomplish our goals. God presents these struggles to us and we must learn to overcome them. Even though our struggles seem mighty, God never gives us more than we can handle. Whatever you’re going through, rest assured that it’s already inside you to overcome that struggle. The comedian Steve Harvey talks about his struggles when he first tried to make it in comedy. Looking at him now you would never know that he had to live in his car for three years while he was struggling to make it. He persevered and now leads an abundant wealthy lifestyle. He had no idea how long it would take him to achieve his goals.

Persevere, Your Struggles Don’t Last Forever

We must persevere because our struggles don’t last forever. As I said earlier, they can never be too hard because God never gives us more than we can handle. If you improvise, adapt, and overcome, you will come out stronger and better. You can have the life you always wanted. In order to persevere, you must have a definitive purpose, a big WHY. This will get you through when it gets too hard, and you don’t feel like it’s worth the struggle. Do a little bit every day to get you closer to your goals and always keep moving forward, never go back. A great book to read on perseverance is “The Alchemist” by Paulo Coelho

Whatever it is that you want to achieve, to be successful you need faith. For example, if you want to acquire wealth, you must have faith that it will happen because most people don’t become financially independent overnight. You have to believe that it’s going to happen at some time. You have to see the amount of money you desire in your mind.

Sometimes beautiful things come into our lives out of nowhere. We can’t always understand them, but we have to trust in them. I know you want to question everything, but sometimes it pays to just have a little faith.
~ Lauren Kate

It’s worth taking a risk when motivated by faith in God’s Word.
~  Ruben Barreto

There are two parts to the mind, the conscious and the subconscious. The subconscious mind is more powerful and can translate your thoughts into reality. If you are thinking positive thoughts, positive things will come to you. On the other hand, if you are thinking negative thoughts continually, you will get the negative things you are thinking about. For example, a person who is struggling financially constantly talks about their debt and bills. Consequently, they accrue more debt.

Faith Opens Up A Direct Line

Once you add faith to positive thought your subconscious mind transmits it to the universe. Without faith, that transmission is blocked. Simply saying and thinking positive thoughts isn’t enough. You must add faith to your daily affirmations. Know that it’s coming, feel the emotions you will have when you receive it and don’t worry about the timing. Just know that it’s on its way. Faith opens up the direct line of communication between us and God.

Faith is believing in something when common sense tells you not to. Breathe, and have faith that everything will work out for the best. Without faith a man can do nothing; with it all things are possible.
~ Sir William Osler

Faith is unquestioning belief.
~ Ronald Hopfer

These 10 quotes about faith will help you get what you desire. Your first step is to decide what you want. Once you decide, make it your definite purpose. Develop a burning desire to obtain it. Mix in faith and know that you already have what you want. Close your eyes and see yourself in possession of whatever it is you want. Do not worry about how you are going to obtain it. The subconscious mind will show you the plans for achieving success.

To one who has faith, no explanation is necessary. To one without faith, no explanation is possible.
~ Thomas Aquinas

These 10 Quotes Are Helpful

How does one go about developing faith? In the 10 quotes about faith, the quote above by Thomas Aquinas shows how difficult it is to describe faith. Faith is not tangible and you can’t point to it. It is something you have or you don’t have. You develop faith through the repetition of affirmations daily. These affirmations will cross from your conscious mind to your subconscious mind. The more you repeat them, the more you believe. In time you will voluntarily develop an emotion of faith.

My faith didn’t remove the pain, but it got me through the pain. Trusting God didn’t diminish or vanquish the anguish, but it enabled me to endure it.
~ Robert Rogers

None of us knows what might happen even the next minute, yet still, we go forward. Because we trust. Because we have Faith.
~ Paulo Coelho

By adding emotion, i.e. happy or grateful, to your thoughts and combining with faith, those thoughts begin to translate to your desires through action. Thinking and saying, “by July 1, 2025, I am happy that I earn $10,000 monthly,” your subconscious mind will start showing you a plan to achieve the money. It’s up to you to recognize those plans and put them into action.

Let’s Do Something Great Together!

Beware Of Negative Thoughts

As I said above in paragraph three, and it bears repeating, your thoughts are transferred to your subconscious mind causing great things to happen. As a word of warning, there is a negative counterpart. If you are constantly speaking and thinking negatively, these thoughts will bring negative things to you.

Faith is a knowledge within the heart, beyond the reach of proof.
~ Khalil Gibran

Send a drop of faith, with a single prayer and God, will show the way, as faith is always there.
~ Julie Hebert

As I wrap this up, if you want to change your current situation and live a better life keep these two statements in mind. A positive mind becomes a home for faith. A negative mind becomes a home for fear. Faith and fear cannot exist in the same place. Live your life by faith.

Faith is a very important attribute to positive thinking.
~ Hanif Raah
