FAITH - Essential for the Millionaire Mind

There is no doubt that these are tough times for (some of) us future millionaires.  We are being faced with major setbacks with all of our investments, business endeavors and power career moves.  Dreams and aspirations for millions in the bank, hot Lambos (hood translation: lamborghinis), huge cribs and living the good life have been extiguished with the ferocity of a firehose on a birthday candle.  However, this is where the tough get tougher, the good get better, and the smart get smarter.  

This is the time where your focus on your goals becomes even more important.  

This is the time for FAITH. 

I'm not going to turn this into a religous post because your faith can be in anything you choose to have faith in: God, yourself, your expected outcome, etc.  

FAITH is important because it gives you a needed boost of energy and drive.  The human body only has but so much gas in it's tank.  What FAITH allows you to do, is to use that gas for the things that are going to get you closer to your goals.  FAITH is like a gas regulator.  With FAITH you will not waste your time on worrying.  No need to worry when you have FAITH, because you know that everything work out for the better.  If you play the hand you were dealt, to the best of your ability, you will come out ahead.  Before you thought you knew, with FAITH you know.  There is a big difference.  

Here is how Faith should work. 
Pretend a long lost relative has left you an inheritance of some sort.  You don't know how much or how little but in able to find out you have to present to the lawyers what you will be doing over the next four months on your plan to reach millions.  The better the plan, the more inheritance you will recieve.  After you revreal this plan you find out that you will recieve 1 million dollars at the end of 4 months regardless if your plan is successful or not. The only clause is that you must do everything you said you were going to do with 110% of y
our effort.   

Now everyday you are working your plan you are happy, because in your mind you are a millionaire already.  You are singing in the shower, you are dancing in your car.  You are a pleasure to everyone you encounter, and you are working your plan with certainty and confidence because you are not spending wasted energy worrying..  That's what FAITH is.  It's that million dollar inheritance.  

Maybe money isn't your goal, but what ever it is, act as if you have recieved it already.  Thanks those around you and GOD for already having helped you reach your goal.  Live every moment like you are at your personal finish line and before you know it you're already there.  

As for the set backs, a quote from the great Jim Rohn: 

.......here is what you can do: you can get stronger; you can get wiser; and you can get better. Remember that trio of words: stronger, wiser, better. The winters won’t change, but you can.

Before I understood this, I used to wish it were summer when it was winter. When things were difficult, I used to wish they were easy. I didn’t know any better. Then Mr. Shoaff gave me the answer from a part of his very unique philosophy when he said, “Don’t wish it were easier, wish you were better. Don’t wish for fewer problems, wish for more skills. Don’t wish for less challenge, wish for more wisdom.”

I can't say it any better then that.  

For now I got the hoodie on in the Grand Prix, soon to be the CL63!  Ryan Sheckler - I'll be up with you in a minute homie!

Let's get it!
