Faith is the second step to acquire that which you desire. Turning thought into its physical equivalent requires faith. In the book Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill, faith is described as believing that what you desire will appear. That this believing is what causes the infinite to respond and provide. The book continues to point out that all thought when combined with emotion and faith will immediately cause the physical counterpart to begin to manifest into your reality.
Any thought whether positive or negative, when combined with emotion will give the order to the subconscious mind to create, this is then transmitted to the universe, or higher power, and so in time the thought will become physical. When you have a thought, and you combine it with emotion you plant a seed, and with continued thought you in essence water and fertilize that seed and in due season, that thought comes to fruition bringing about that which you have thought.
The book Think and Grow Rich goes on to say that with the above statement, you will understand that the subconscious will translate any thought impulse. It will act whether or not the thought is negative and destructive just as readily as if the thought were positive and constructive. This is why so many people are suffering from misfortune and poverty, because for the most part we cause it ourselves. Too many of us believe it is our fate to be poor, that we are mediocre, that we are doomed to failure, and more importantly, we believe it is out of our control.
There is where the book Think and Grow Rich offers hope, the book clearly and plainly states the methods and procedures needed by any person to use to create wealth where there was none, to create good fortune, opportunity, and happiness. By careful consideration of your method of thinking, added with emotion and belief, you can very literally think and grow rich. With just a little faith in yourself, you can completely change your life to be, as you want it, as you think it should be, as you desire it, and not as others have told you it should be. This is after all your life; it should be as you think it should.
Now you may be getting the hint that your thought when mixed with the proper ingredients will command that your desire be carried out, and that your subconscious will transmute into the physical by the most direct and practical method that which you are demanding. NEVERTHELESS, you must actually do it. Wistful thinking and wishing will not cause the desired results, rather you must hold the thought with added emotion, then believe that you have it, and then have faith that when you are ready it will come into your reality. Just remember the words of Napoleon Hill “no more effort is required to aim high in life, to demand abundance and prosperity, than is required to accept misery and poverty”.
