Successes vs. Failures - Donut Principle

Instructions for a Favorable Mental Attitude

Provided are instructions to create a mental attitude which is favorable for the expression of Faith:

1. Know what you want and believe that you can and will get it.

2. Give expressions of Gratitude many times a daily for having received that you want even before you actually get physical possession of it – possession starts first in the mind.

3. Keep your mind open to hunches from within. When inspired to action, don’t wait, but move on your own initiative at once. Remember, there can be NO applied faith without Action.

4. You are tested many times before you are crowned with final victory. Accept your defeat as nothing more than a challenge to keep on trying.

5. A burning desire is the starting point of all applied faith. Be definite. Believe and Act. Keep on acting even if at first you meet with defeat.

6. When doubt creeps in remember: "Whatsoever a man believeth, that shall he also reap".
