One of the most powerful books ever written, partly because it was based on many years of research, is Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill.  In my mastermind group we discuss this book one chapter at a time.   The following are the thoughts of Ken Klemm on chapter three.  Faith; Visualization of, and belief in attainment of desire, the second step toward riches.

“What I BELIEVE has absolutely nothing to do with FAITH.

My Beliefs are all hardwired into my brain. Look, talking about neuroscience is really tedious – so please just trust me on this, and do Your own research if You need to.

My brain, and YOURS, were hardwired through REPEATED SUGGESTION.

Watch this… Complete the following phrases for me:

Money is the root of all…

It’s lonely at the…

Nice guys finish…

If You swim within a half-hour after eating, then You will…

None of the above are proven absolutes, but I’ll bet a dollar to a doughnut You were raised into the same PARADIGM I was.

Paradigm? A fancy word for the box I live in. My Beliefs define the box – all its possibilities… and its limits.

FAITH? Faith is simply KNOWING things beyond the boundaries of the box. I may live in the box, but I KNOW, without leaving the box, there is a larger world out there.

Faith is Knowing my Creator gave me unlimited authority to re-define my box. I can change its size, its shape… or even throw the thing out and get a whole new box!

Faith is Knowing He sent me many teachers throughout the ages to show me how, even to this very day – Knowing that I can be one of His teachers whenever I allow Him to speak through me.

Faith gave me a CONSCIENCE – something that instinctively Knows what is right and wrong.

It is not my responsibility when someone up-line, down-line, cross-line or clothes-line loses Faith and forgets the Face of their Father. I must be true to myself and Him. THAT is my responsibility!

Faith is living in The NOW… ALL the way in The Now (where there are no limits).

Your Friend and Servant,

Ken Klemm – Florida, USA”
