Turning the Tide

Negativity 3

It Starts with Vision

I have been spending more and more time trying to help people change their mindset about what’s possible, trying to get them to believe in themselves and achieve more in life. At times it’s like pushing a boulder uphill. For reasons that are hard to explain, some people tend to cling to the negative nurturing they received growing up or experience in the present. As long as those dark clouds of self-doubt hover over head, it’s difficult to escape the shadows.

So much of what we believe  shapes our reality. We think negatively about a situation, the outcome is rarely if ever good. When we harbor dark thoughts, when we doubt everything, the doo

rs to possibility remains closed. I actually know some people that intentionally reject what they hear or see because they’ve been taught to be skeptical and negative.

This kind of limiting cognition is a real death spiral and leads to nowhere. So how is someone to break free of this kind of thinking? How does one escape the dark circumstances of a life their own thoughts created?

Vision. Human beings are very visual. Our vision is probably one of the first senses that shaped our evolution and set us apart from the rest of creation. When I say vision, I am not just talking about what we see with our eyes. There are animal species with far sharper visual acuity than man, but they don’t build skyscrapers or Mars land rovers! The vision I speak of does include what we see with our eyes but more importantly, it includes what our eyes cannot see! The vision I am really writing about is what happens in our mind’s imaginative eyesight.

Our minds are the creative engines of this world, fueled and sparked by the divine. What we imagine, we can create. What we imagine in our mind’s eye becomes a reality we can shape. As long as we limit ourselves to negativity, an atmosphere of negativity is all that will be created. Our subconscious mind is always busy creating so when we are consumed by the hurdles and challenges in front of us, our creative mind undergirds those barriers!

Vision - Eye

So we have to change our vision. We have to engage our imagination to create positive outcomes. We have to think and deliver to our subconsciousness the material it needs to create a whole new world of possibilities. So instead of seeing rejection, see approval. Instead of imagining that you cannot start your own business, see yourself opening a new store, developing a new product or service, or launching a business plan. Instead of seeing failure, you have to see success in your mind. You have to imagine that you are (not will be) a successful business owner! Take a first step here. Watch this presentation, see yourself making hundreds of thousands of dollars a year, and chase those clouds of negativity away!

 

Vision and Dreams

Vision and Dreams

How many of you make it a habit to write out your vision and dreams?  I believe that there are probably a great many of us that believe this is important to do but don’t.  We understand the theory and the promise behind this exercise but often times when it comes right down to putting it into practice, we fail big time!  We fail to take advantage of what’s offered in our vision and dreams.  Maybe not all of you… ok well, just me then (smile)!  I want to take a quick few minutes to talk about why (If you’re like me about transformative envisioning), it is vital to the process of growth that we write out our vision and dreams and make them plain.

I honestly and truly believe with all my heart that when God’s word tells me that as a man thinketh, or believes about himself, so is he or so he will become.  I believe this.  I take it literally because it comes from the Word of God, but I also believe it because there have been too many respected scholars and philosophers who have affirmed this basic, fundamental principle through various teachings and writings.  We experience visions and dreams for a reason.  Our minds really don’t stop processing information when we close our eyes at night (see Nature, The Journal of Neuroscience).  I believe our best work occurs when we focus and experience vision and dreams.

Now, I believe that this essential truth is often mislabeled or misapplied by the secular world but there is no denying how true this is (see Nature 2).  For example, scientist can explain the color of the sky but I believe its hue comes from the finger of God.  Does this mean that the science is wrong?  Of course not.  We may quibble over attribution and credit but the central tenant remains true, the sky is blue!

So when the Lord says that I am what I think, that my thoughts have the power of transformation, I believe it completely.  When He says to me that the power of life and death is in my tongue, I don’t quibble with that statement.  I take it as fact.  When He says that salvation is as near as the words out of my mouth, that if I will confess Him as Lord and Savior, I will be saved, I doubt nothing!  I rejoice!!!  I see the evidence of this every time I look in the mirror and recognize that but for the grace of God…

Yes, this all works fine and dandy for Christian believers but what if you’re not of that belief?  What if you haven’t come to that revelation of faith? What should I know or care about vision and dreams?  You can still be transformed by the things you say!  The tone of your day is often set by the very first thing you experience or say in the morning.  Have you ever stubbed your toe getting out of bed or walking to the restroom?  Do things tend to go downhill afterwards?  Think about it.  What was your reaction when you stubbed your toe?  Those words shape what follows!

This is what this post is about and this is why I say to you that vision and dreams are very but what you also have to put into motion are your words!  Faith without work is dead!!  The work affirms your faith and gives substance to your faith.  You put your words into motion by writing!  Write your visions and dreams out.  Write down your visions and dreams and revisit them often.  Make it a daily habit to write WHAT YOU want to SEE HAPPEN.  Your visual cortex is directly impacted by what you write and vice versa.  One reinforces the other and when you write the vision you really do make it plain.  In other words, making it plain actually means to make material, to make real, to bring what was invisible into the visible realm.

Write_the_Vision2

This is what I want you to do every morning and it is very simple…even a caveman could do it (sorry if I have offended any local Neanderthals).  After you pray, meditate or conduct your devotion, sit down for a brief moment in peace.  Don’t get started on the next thing, just give peace a moment to settle on you.  Take out a piece of paper, tablet, cell phone or any device that will allow you to write.  Think in your mind of one thing that you really want to see happen, be completed, or achieved in that day.  One goal, start with one and write it down.  Concentrate on that one thing and nothing else.  Don’t worry about any other aspect of what you want to see happen, i.e. what it will take to accomplish, how much, how long, whom will need to get involved, etc.  Now write your thought out just as it was formed in your mind.  Write it a second time.  Write it five more times for a total of seven.  Try to keep the vision to a sentence or two and later you can expand that as needed.  By keeping it short you don’t get distracted with unnecessary verbiage.  Short and sweet and to the point!

What you have just done is given your vision and dream some preliminary form.  As you see it and read it, your vision will continue to gain clarity and that is what you need.  The clearer the vision the stronger the transformation from the immaterial to the material will be.  This is why when we sometimes ask God for help or assistance, our aid doesn’t seem to come or when it does come it is in a form that we hadn’t even imagined.  Of course, when we get the help we seek, we’re probably satisfied to get it in whatever form it comes!  What I am sharing with you is how to achieve specifically that very thing you hope for with specificity.  You have to be specific and focused when it comes to receiving the thing you want.  If you ask God for anything, any kind of way, then don’t be surprised to receive whatever!

Our Master said to ask and it would be given, to seek and it would be found, to knock and it would be opened (see Matthew 7:7).  You have to ask specifically for the specific thing with specificity.  You have to seek with intensity in order to find exactly what you want.  Last, you have to knock on the door, the right door, in order to enter the room you intend to be in.  All of these things come from a focused clarity and intent.  This is how you begin to actualize your vision and dreams.  Write them down, revise them with specific intent and focus on the dream some more.  The vision will continue to become clearer and clearer until what you are writing is laser focused and on target.  After that you’ve done the most important part.  In the past perhaps you did not receive what you asked for because you didn’t ask and when you did you may have asked incorrectly.  It’s time to change all of that!!!  Gain a strong foothold on your future and write the vision, make it plain.  Once the vision has taken form and become material, it’s much easier to run with it and receive it!!!!  Vision and Dreams have a real purpose in your life so don’t neglect the gift that God has given to us.

Guard Your Prosperity

Guard your prosperity 4Guard Your Prosperity

Seeing your way through a major problem isn’t always easy and once you do, you should work just as hard to preserve your victory!  Often times people do not want to see your success.  They may mouth the words that say otherwise but many times hard feelings are formed against what you have achieved.

I can’t pretend to know what is in every man’s heart, but actions speak louder than words.  Just look at your circle of friends and acquaintances and ask yourself whether there is a change in the air when you come into great success or break throughs. What happens when you share your good news with others?  What words are spoken into your ear?  Do they affirm your blessings or do they naysay?

When you have fought hard to form a positive self image, a new answer to a persistent problem, or some vision of health and wealth for you and your family, don’t let the enemy snipe at it.  Don’t cast these pearls before those who despise good things.  Guard your prosperity, make sure that no one tears down what you have fought to build up.

In your mouth are the keys to change and faith.  In the mouth of those not aligned with your vision are the keys to your demise and that of your dreams.  You have to learn to distance yourself from those whose dreams run counter to your own.  Two people cannot truly walk together unless they agree.  Make sure that you walk the path set before you, the one you have envisioned, the one that leads to greater prosperity and purpose.  If someone is walking with you but is speaking and believing counter to your purpose and destiny, your own path will become confused.  You may even find yourself straying from purpose, your purpose, and walking in someone else’s path.

I think this is what often happens.  People get lead astray and start adopting someone else’s vision, then they get despondent when their life is convoluted, unproductive and indebted.  How can you prosper following someone else’s vision and purpose?  If you do this, your own prosperity will languish and so will you.  You won’t live up to your own potential.  This is what you often see when you encounter complainers and people full of bitterness.

Guard your prosperity 3

So I say Guard your prosperity.  Protect it, cherish it and nurture it by devoting time to concentrate on what you have envisioned.  Build a habit of reaffirming your vision and don’t share it with everybody.  People can see your prosperity from afar and learn from your methods after the fact, but while your developing your vision guard your prosperity carefully.  If you have a vision board, great, but don’t post it or display it for public scrutiny.  It is your vision.  Make sure you see it.  No one else needs to see it.  I say this because when others see what you have envisioned for yourself, they ask questions.  These questions can sometimes be very negative and demotivating.  This is because they don’t understand your vision and how do people react to things they don’t understand?  They oppose them, they strike out against them and attempt to dismantle them and make you feel silly for having such passion and vision.

Questions from these type of people can have a real debilitating effect on your spirit and your vision.  These questions can appear to be harmless at first.  Someone might ask, “do you really think it’s a good idea to see that job making $350,000 a year”, or “why buy a Mercedes?  People who buy those care only about image.  You don’t want to be that person do you?”  When you hear questions like this what does it do to what you have dreamed about?  It is deflating.

Guard your prosperity 6So cast off the naysayers and guard your prosperity.  Your dreams are yours and they have come into your life just for you.  Relish them and see yourself walking in the prosperity God intended for you to have.  Let the naysayers sit and spin!!!  You roll out in your Mercedes filled with the knowledge that $350,000 is sitting in the bank at your disposal!!!

Night Cries….Part 3

Screaming 4

Night Cries Part 3

By

Timotei

Time seemed to stop for Erik.  Before him stood a visage of death, poised to end his very existence.  Erik’s mind and body was moving in slow motion.  Everything grew still and it looked to Erik that even she stood frozen in a block of cold, poisoned silence.  Despite all his efforts and safeguards, she remained, she existed, she was here…and she was intent on ending him.  She was a mistake.

Of all the technological achievements and modern marvels that flourished on Cold World, no one really understood. No one foresaw what such extreme emotional isolation was doing to the souls of men.  With so many emotional connections severed and with society fully engaged in the practice of Divestiture, no one was paying attention to the after effects.  She was an after effect.  She was a malignant reflection of the darkest aspects of Erik’s soul.  She represented all the demented and savage lusts of Eriks heart and soul unbounded and unchecked.  With no emotional anchor or cage, she was set free from the inner most sanctums of Erik’s soul.  She was a birth defect of his soul.

She first manifested in Erik’s dreams, dreams that grew steadily more macabre, darker and vivid.  Erik, so exhausted from his daily ruminations and rituals, never gave the dreams a second thought.  They were unimportant to him since they added nothing to the discoveries he sought in advanced theories about Cold World and the planets above.  But one night, the dreams stopped.  The nightmares became blank echoes in his mind.  He ceased dreaming.  He could not even recall the slightest remembrance or piece of his night thoughts from the night.

Erik was not too troubled by this.  After all, his inventions waited.  He had more than enough preoccupations to busy himself with.  He brushed it off.  But then it happened.  Erik cried.  Tears rushed down his cheeks like a ravenous beast starved far too long.  In the middle of his laboratory, Erik found himself balling like a baby, his face blank in confusion but his heart singing out with pain like none he had ever experienced before.  What was happening to him?  What was the meaning of these tears?  How was this even possible his thoughts exploded?

Erik rushed to his bathroom and stared in the mirror.  The tears were real.  His head was starting to spin and he staggered out of the bathroom seeking a place to sit, no, lie down.  The cold of the lab floor embraced him and Erik lie there staring up at the ceiling.  His mind was awash with questions.  This was his saving grace.  His mind.  He would focus his genius on discovering the nature of this event.  He doubted the divestiture failed.  He was beyond committed.  So what just happened?  As his mind searched for answers his pulse calmed and he started feeling more like himself. Erik rose from the floor and walked over to his lab bench.  A reflection in the tech screen caught his eye.  It wasn’t the look on his face that he noticed as he stared into the screen.  It was the murderous eyes that blinked back at him that sent chills up his spine.  They weren’t his eyes.  They were the eyes of a woman, a woman insane with rage and hatred.  Today was a first for Erik.  Today was the first time in his life he felt what he would later describe as fear.

Erik stepped away from the screen and sought a quiet corner in his lab.  He needed to gather his thoughts and assess the situation.  Erik looked around the room and then found the screen again.  She was gone.  Had he just imagined it all?  Maybe he was overworked he thought to himself.  Perhaps a brief walk in the midday sun would help him gain clarity and clear his mind.  Erik headed to the sky walk and waved his hand over the floor direction indicator.  Once inside the doors closed silently and with a low hum the sky walk began its descent.  Inside the sky walk the lights flickered briefly and the front door panels shimmered and almost bowed upon themselves.  The doors glimmered with the visage of a woman silently screaming bloody rage and intent at Erik.  There was no sound but Erik could feel her rage.  In a fit of panic Erik started screaming and the doors of the skywalk swung open.  The ground level had been reached and a crowd stood outside in the campus sunlight staring blankly at Erik’s sweat drenched hair and face.  Erik choked and coughed roughly in an attempt to gather his wits and step outside.  His pulse was racing and pounding in his ears.

Julia stepped quickly to Erik’s side and asked, “Are you ok Erik”?

Erik was shaking like a leaf in the autumn wind and replied with a small weak voice, “I…I don’t know”.

“We heard screaming from inside the skywalk”, Julia offered.  She peered inside the skywalk’s travel box to see if anyone else was inside.  There was no one.  Other people started conversing and re-engaging in conversation with their voice printers having been interrupted by Erik’s screaming.  No one save Julia seemed the least bit curious by all the screaming and went about their tasks as though nothing had happened.

“Julia”, Erik rasped.  “Something is happening that…that…,” Erik paused, “I can’t explain”.  The words were so alien to his ears.

Julia responded with a look of mild curiosity.  “There was screaming coming from the skywalk Erik.  Was that you?”

“I believe so Julia”, Erik said.  “But I don’t really understand why I was screaming” he lied.  “I think I need to just get some rest.  It will become clear to me later why my body did that.  Please don’t concern yourself with it.”

“I was not concerning myself Erik.  I simply wanted to know why there was screaming coming from the skywalk and why you looked so, so…afraid or something.  It was very odd and completely out of character.  Were you experimenting with the void bugs again?  You know what kind of hallucinogenic effect they can have on the nervous system”, Julia said flatly.

Erik hesitated before saying, “No, it wasn’t that.  I use full precautions now.  I never leave things to chance.  I just think my mental state was, uhh, I failed to achieve synchronicity with my divestiture programming”, Erik stammered.  “I will have it all in order soon so don’t worry about me.”

Julia looked puzzled.  “What do you mean worry Erik?  I don’t think that’s possible.  Don’t you recall, I’m at 45% divestiture now?  Worrying is a vague concept to me now.  My curiosity was merely peaked by the unusual sounds you were making.”

Erik just stared at her.

“Ok, so you will regain synchronicity and explain the source of the noise you were making later”, Julia asked.

“Yes, yes, of course Julia.  I have got to go now, but I will be in touch”.

With that Erik turned and walked off, not looking back, not wanting to see what might have been reflecting on the doors of the skywalk.  His palms were wet with perspiration.  His legs felt like rubber.  He needed to sit down or he was going to collapse in the street.  He needed answers and the thought occurred to him that there might be one place, one person who might be able to provide some.

The Storm’s Debris

Storm3

The Storm’s Debris

I was just sitting at my desk and I’ve been pondering something I thought I’d share here.  I have a very good friend that is battling something now.  It’s pretty heavy and very emotional.  They shared with me some of what they are facing and at first glance it’s very heart breaking…at first glance or from the outside of faith looking in that is.

While I was sitting here I was thinking of how I could apply what I’ve been learning and sharing on this blog about the Law of Faith.  I spent some time with this individual sharing some of the dynamic thought changing ideas embraced by Law of Faith thinking and a spiritual posture.  It dawned on me that what my friend is going through is an example of how the 4th dimension works.

I shared a few keys from Dr. Cho’s book as well as a few verses from the bible with my friend but they were not positively receptive to them.  I didn’t go into great detail because it’s just too much to share in one setting, especially when the receiver is emotionally distraught.  I was listening for any leading from the Holy Spirit and He showed me what was going on with my friend.  They were in crisis and that storm had their full and complete attention!  All the debris being tossed to and fro by that storm totally blinded my friend to some of what I was saying to them.  It was very heavy, the amount of baggage and “stuff” hanging around their neck was daunting.  I began to see why my words weren’t taking root.

Remember, the realm of spirits (lower case) or 4th dimension is not just about the activity of the Almighty.  There is good and bad in the 4th dimension and the key to remember is that the 3rd dimension can be directly impacted by the 4th; therefore, if I speak negatively about my health and see only death in my future guess what?  I am ushering in death.  I am causing effects in my 3rd dimension body because of what my words are creating in the 4th dimension!!!!

Storm

This is what my friend was doing.  These emotions were allowing all kinds of negative words and thoughts to manifest…and my friend didn’t even realize it!  I could see it in their eyes.  The tears were flowing and those tears were acting as a lubricant, further sliding their vision into a very dark, hopeless place!

The bible says that without a vision the people perish (Prov 29:18).  But if you only see the negative and the dark side of things, you will experience the same result as if you had no vision!  I just can’t say this enough, it is essential that the words of our mouths match the vision we seek!  I told my friend to focus on seeing a different outcome than the darkness they were focusing on.  I told them to start affirming a new vision for a positive outcome, to speak it, and do it regularly.  I am firmly convinced that God wants us to speak in the affirmative, to tap the power of His presence and in thereby doing we give Him glory!

I am going to focus, affirm and meditate on the complete and total restoration of my friend’s health, both emotional and physical.  Let these words I type be acceptable in your sight, “O LORD, my strength, and my redeemer” (Psalms 19:14).

Operationalize Your Faith

Operationalize Your Faith

With so much potential available and virtually untapped by most people of faith, myself included, what kind of changes can I make to utilize what I am learning about the power of the law of faith or the law of attraction?  Just how does one go about operationalizing their faith?

I went through a seminar a few months back called REBOOT.  It was a transition prep seminar for separating military members.  It was one of the best three weeks of the year for me!  I learned so much during that seminar I couldn’t begin to share what I learned here.  I would need a book.  Not only did I learn about the law of attraction during this seminar, but I also learned how important daily affirmations can be.  I’m not talking about mantras or chants or stuff like that.  Affirmations, when written down and made a part of your daily habit, become a means of declaring and speaking into the 4th dimension!  Affirmations are one way to operationalize your faith.

There is actually a method or template for writing out the affirmation and it’s very powerful.  If you speak the affirmation after you write it down you are engaging the speech center of your brain and according to Dr. Cho, the speech center controls the nervous system.  The nervous system is what carries signals throughout the body, signals that help make changes in how the body’s physiology responds to outside circumstances.  The speech center has control over how we think and act!!!!  As a man thinketh, so is he… (I love it).  Remember the words found in James 3:1-11.  The tongue is such a small member of the body yet it boasts great things and can affect the whole body (paraphrased).  Our words carry allot of weight and control so many things internally and externally.

Anyway, you can change your attitude and posture by what you say.  Your body will obey the words of your mouth.  So then when you speak into the 4th dimension in faith and in Jesus name, you can create effects you seek in the 3rd dimension.

Daily affirmations help focus your thoughts and engage the speech center which prepares the body to conform to what has been spoken.  This is also a great way to renew your mind each day.  Your mind will conform to the things you say.  Remember the speech center is housed in the brain, connected to how you think and feel.  Want to feel better, then speak better!  Operationalize your faith every day!

 So what I am going to do is develop a daily ritual involving my morning prayer and meditation and the drafting of my affirmations.  This is where I have been slack because I know what I want to accomplish but I forget to operationalize my faith like this!!  Now there is a flashback word for you military types.  Operationalize your faith, speak the word and create the environment you want to live and prosper in.

See Your Prosperity

Prosperity 2

Can You See Prosperity

I had an absolutely fantastic weekend.  Monday was…well, Monday but otherwise I am feeling like a complete success.  I’m putting my plan in action and my new campaign is under development!  I cannot emphasize enough how much you need to get Dr Cho’s book the 4th Dimension.  I almost want to guarantee that if you buy it don’t love it, I will buy it back from you…I did say almost (smile).  I feel that confident in the book’s value though.

I have started envisioning 1000 new leads for the month of August.  All I need to do now is think about what that might look like and then meditate on that one thing until I get the assurance that it’s going to happen, that it is happening, that it has happened! I won’t try to evangelize you here but I will say that with all the things you can put your faith in, why not try God?  Why not put your hope and trust in what He has purposed for you?  What do you have to lose?  I believe that ultimately your success and prosperity is what God is after.  He really wants you to succeed and He has created a system to help you achieve it.  Dr. Cho calls it the power of the 4th dimension, the realm of the spirit world.

The 4th dimension has dominion over the 3rd which is the earth.  We live, breath and move within the 3rd dimension.  We are three dimensional creatures and we live in a three dimensional world.  Everything is a matter of authority and power.  The 3rd dimension has dominion over the second (a plane) and the second dimension has power over the 1st (a line).

If you draw a line, that line can only influence the molecules that are in its line space.  But if you stack multiple lines on top of each other you then have a plane and all lines in the plane are subject to that plane!  The ruled lines on notebook paper is always subject to whatever that paper is doing or being made to do by forces in the 3rd dimension.  This same principle goes with the 4th or spiritual dimension power over the 3rd.

It may sound crazy and a bit whacky, but it’s not.  It actually follows the general principles of physics.  More convincing to me are the examples given in the bible concerning how this spiritual realm works.  What Dr. Cho makes very clear in his work is that the 4th dimension is and can be used for both good and evil…now that should give you pause and to me, it explains some of the phenomenon that mankind has witnessed throughout time.

Prosperity 5

If you’re willing, try Seeing Prosperity in your future.  Forget about the doom and gloom.  Don’t even speak negative language because language shapes the world you live in. Instead, speak of your success and see your prosperity.  Live in that space.

Any-who, I said all that to say that I intend to utilize the creative power of the Holy Spirit to create success for my business and my personal life.  I will speak positively about what I want to happen in my business endeavors and in my personal life.  I am going to meditate on increase.  I am going to see it in my mind’s eye, praise God for it, and wait on His assurance that it shall be.  I am going to walk in prosperity and speak it over the lives of all those connected to me.

So here is my recap:

  • 1000 leads a month for http://instantpaydaynetwork.com/jcraig63
  • Promotion to GS-13 at my present job
  • 500 new sales a month with http://www.empowernetwork.com/jcraig63/
  • A new job for my daughter at a prestige’s salon in California
  • A great, economic, and reliable car for my daughter to travel back and forth to work in
  • A new job for my wife in the banking industry that is very close to home.
  • Unrivalled prosperity for every reader of this blog.

In my prayers and meditations I intend to be much more descriptive about these things per the Word of God and the teachings presented in Dr. Cho’s book.  As I have said before, check back here and see what I have to testify about when the leads start pouring in and the things I have spoken out loud…err, typed, come to pass.

Law of Faith & The Law of Attraction

ask-believe-receive

The Law of Faith & The Law of Attraction

As business owners and entrepreneurs, there is probably many variables that are very common to us all.  Or at least it should be.  We all have drive, hunger to succeed, energy, family or community support, etc, etc.  What should also be on that list of common denominators is Vision!  In fact, Vision should be at the top of any list of desirable character traits followed closely by passion.

When I say vision, however, I am not talking about a statement of direction you may have for your business.  I am talking about something intimately connected to what Dr. David Cho calls the Law of Faith.  He expounds extremely well on this in his first volume of the 4th Dimension.  By the way, if you don’t have this book, stop everything you’re doing and order it through Amazon or Barnes & Noble right now!  It is a must have for any business entrepreneur.  I just ordered volume two!

My statement on Vision is also closely connected to what Rhonda Byrne wrote about in her book The Secret.  The movie is available on Netflix and it’s really worth checking out if you haven’t seen it yet.

Both Dr. Cho and Rhonda Byrne, in my opinion, base their work on a very simple but core biblical principle found in Proverbs 23:7.  As a man thinks of himself, so is he!  In sum, we have the power to create and this comes from God (my opinion).  We were made in His image and likeness so why shouldn’t the power of creation lie within us.  If indeed God is in us, as we are born again, then doesn’t it also follow that God’s creative element also lies within us.  I know, I know, I’m preaching here but consider this.  The bible also tells us that to every man is given a measure of faith…to every man regardless of whether you walk in the light or not!  So to each of us is given the ability to believe and some do and some do not, but to those who do believe…imagine what becomes possible.  If you believe and that belief or faith is proportionate in size to that of a mere mustard seed…mountains can be moved!

This then is what I speak of when I talk of Vision.  Do you, can you see the thing that you want to accomplish or become?  Is it real in your mind’s eye, so real that you can act as though you have already achieved it or experienced it?  If you embark on starting a new business, how do you see that business growing?  How much revenue do you see or envision coming into that business?  How successful can you envision yourself?  I tell you, if you practice the Law of Faith, you can really conceive of the very thing that you see!  I highly recommend Dr. Cho’s book, both of them lol, and I suggest that you peep out Rhonda’s movie on Netflix, The Secret.  Don’t brush these works off as hoaxes or shams.  I have practiced some of the things suggested in The Secret and saw them accomplished.  I have also walk by faith and practiced some of the things Dr. Cho shared in his book and I can say with equivacation that it works! (Where did that word come from hahaha).

I am going to take this a step further.  I am going to actively set in motion the Law of Faith concerning my business venture on Empower Network and ISDN.  I am going to believe for 1000 leads a month with a 30% conversion on those leads.  On August 31st I will report back here to testify to my success (smile).  You realize that this will mean that for the month of August I will have made $6000.00 dollars.  This is the number I am going to envision for my business.  I’ve just taken the first step towards bringing my Vision to pass.  What will you envision for your business? Your life? Your family?
