Confession: I’ve got boat fever … big time!
I just spent 4 days over Memorial Day weekend on Smith Mountain Lake — one of the best Striper Fishing lakes on the East Coast — and had so much fun out on the water exploring, swimming, tubing, fishing … and especially window-shopping my next boat purchase.
I’m leaning towards a power sport cruiser in the 30- to 34-foot range … and I have to admit I’m pretty excited about it. You may have heard me tell the story of how — years ago — I sold my boat in order to attend my first Personal Development live seminar, with Tony Robbins. My life has been an incredible ride since … and I’ve not spent a single moment since thinking about owning a boat again — until now …
And this next boat is going to be … well … slightly more luxurious than the last, to say the least (wink).
So, it’s a decision.
I’m in the market for a pleasure craft, and I can hardly wait to enjoy & celebrate this complete circle. I’m so very grateful for the growth & expansion that stepping up & into my purpose, and following faith, has allowed me. And so it is.
And isn’t it just perfect that the article below — that I’d prepared for you precisely for today — is titled: “The Power of Faith”.
Enjoy. Absorb. And most importantly: Step Up!

“7 Mindset & Manifesting Secrets of Multimillionaire Entrepreneurs”
The Power of Faith
In my last article, I started telling you about the third of seven secrets of multimillionaire entrepreneurs, and that is belief and faith in a higher power.
One of the most incredible books I’ve ever read is God Works Through Faith, by Robert Russell.
Russell writes that faith is the confidence that you have the power to do all things through God. You can solve any problem, remove any obstacle in your life. You can dominate every circumstance and open every door. That is 100% accurate.
How Faith Works
When I first started my business, I was working out of a makeshift office that used to be a bedroom. Things were tight sometimes; I’d have a little dip in business or would run out of leads.
At those times, I would stand up and with all the strength inside me and as loud as I could, I would shout, “Success is coming! It’s here now! It’s here every day! It’s showing up now! The calls and people are coming! The business and money are coming! I claim it as mine! It is here now!”
Without fail, either later that day or the next day, something would happen; out of the blue, the phone would ring with a solution.
Before you think that’s just me…several years ago, one of my clients had to leave the house and land that she loved, and was really grieving about it. One day, while crying on the porch of her home-office, that quiet voice inside said, Turn it.
Although she’d never done anything like this before, she turned her grief to faith and started shouting, “It’s all coming with me! The pond! The ducks! The sheep! The beautiful land! All of it! It’s all coming with me!” She shouted until she was spent.
Ten minutes later, the phone rang, and it was her future landlady to the ranch where she now lives, where there is not one pond but seven … not one acre, but dozens.
Claim Your Results
Do you know why we had those results? We had them because we claimed them.
Despite the absence of evidence, I knew 100% that success was mine. I was not going to be denied my success. And you know that I wasn’t.
Most people who start off in business struggle somewhat and are often worried about whether they are selling enough product or have enough clients to pay the bills.
When you master the concept of faith, a significant shift takes place within where you tap into a place of knowing. You know that you can manifest whatever you want and need.
From that knowing, you can move into a place of total service. When you do that and become a real blessing to humanity, it’s almost like the turbocharger on your car kicking in. You take off and skyrocket.
To grasp this, you have to expand your awareness. You need to think about, and really understand, your overall purpose as a spiritual being and why you are here.
As individuals, very often we identify with our kids, spouse, job, skill set, the problems we’ve had in the past or our perceived limitations, and we think we are those things.
We don’t realize what a special form of life we are.
We’re the highest form of life on the planet that we’re aware of. And we’re all creative, which means we’re here to create and serve.
That really is a divine purpose. You serve that first and foremost in your life, and everything else becomes secondary.
It does require that you step up.
But, remember, you don’t have to do that alone. When you step up and out with faith, Spirit is with you every step of the way. All you have to do is say, or shout, YES.
