I will start this introduction by quoting the Bible. According to the Bible, ‘’faith is the assured expectation of what is hoped for, the evident demonstration of realities that are not seen. Hebrews 11 :1. ‘’ In these days, more than any other times in the history of the world we need hope, we need faith. Many people in the world are single, many people in the world live by paycheck and they don’t like their job. Many people have a very difficult financial situation or medical problem or something else that steal their joy and happiness. If that is your case, this little ebook is for you. You can find in it very simple and pratical informations that you can implement today in order to feed your mind with faith. No matter what is the reason why you are down and discouraged let me remind you that a good and happy life are always possible as long as you can have a vision of the life you want and focus your mind in the good side of life. You can do this through the eyes of your faith.

Thank you.

There are many spiritual values : love, patience, courage, faith, kindness, honesty, persistence, forgiveness, humility and so on. Among these spiritual values there is one that comes over and over in any religion, spiritual books, business books… espacially when it comes to overcome problems. This spiritual value is ‘’faith’’. Like any tool well used, faith is a powerful tool that can make life better to anybody who knows how to use it in order to get result.

When you want to use any tool, a computer for instance, you have to learn how to use it, otherwise you won’t get anything from your computer even if it costs you much money to buy it. So likewise ‘’faith’’ is a tool that we can learn to use and when we know how to use it well, we can apply what we learn in our life. Surely we will reap tremendous positive results in our life. So, how can we become a person of faith or a man or woman who uses faith as a tool in his daily life ? There are many ways to do it but I will suggest in this part of the ebook, 4 ways to strenghen our faith.

1 Affirmations

Affirmations are short positive phrases that we say over and over to ourselves. For instance : ‘’good things come my way’’, ‘’life is always on my side’’, ‘’I am a magnet to money ‘’. Short positive sentences like these are called affirmation or incantation. What that does ? When you say something over and over to yourself your mind start believing that what you affirm or say is true.

Our mind is the only creator of our life and it only creates what we believe is true. If you believe that you are poor your mind will create poverty for you. If you believe that you are rich, your mind will create riches for you. When we understand the power of our mind to create for us what we believe in, we will not underestimate the power of affirmation or what we say to ourself over and over whether it is unconsciously or consciously.

Know that when we say positive words to ourself, it does not necessary need to match with your current situation. Maybe you are sick, and you start saying over and over this incantation ‘’ healing and restoration come on my body.’’ The truth is that you are sick, don’t deny that, the power of your affirmation here is that you are setting your brain to look for new ways of healing and restoration of your body. You are physically sick right now but your mind is strong and sharp. What that does is that instead of leaving in fears and beeing hopeless, you are full of faith and courage. The bottom line is that you can quickly find ways, whether to go and see a doctor or do something else that will heal you.

You are jobless and broke, you repeat over and over again to yourself that ‘’opportunities are coming on my ways’’.The truth is that after saying that for over 10 to 20 minutes to yourself whether it is louder or silently for days, for months even for years, you will not necessary come out with a telephone call for a job interview or a customer who wants to pay you $1000 for your service. You have to take some actions and discipline yourself more. What the affirmation does is that your mind is geared and ready for business opportunities, your mind is set up to get a wonderful job.

Like I said earlier, faith is a tool that we need to learn how to use it. The more you affirme something over and over, the more your mind start to believe that affirmation and if your mind believe it, it will surely create circumstances for you to make what you affirm, a reality. You don’t necessary need to repeat to yourself the same positive phrase over and over. You can write it on paper and stick it on your refrigerator, on your bag, or wherever you can see it any times of the day. It may also be in the backgroud of your computer, your smartphone or tablet.

2 Read books or listen to tapes on topic of faith

In most of my blog posts I used to point out the power of a good book and how it can positively make an impact in our life. Most of our challenges and setbacks even the goals that we want to realize, there is somebody else who has already gone through those difficulties and has won the battle we are fighting, succesfully. We have a goal, no problem, sure enough, somebody had the same goal and has made that goal a reality. The importance of reading a book here is that there is a book or some books that talk exactly on how you can solve the problem you face. If you read that book, you will grab wisdoms, intelligence about how to solve that problem.

Most people has written books about their journey from sickness to total healing. People has written books about their journey from total lack of money, deep debt to total abundance. There are plenty of stories of breakthrough related to each problem that every person faces today. You know the power of a book is that the testimonies of other can inspire us, it can motivate us and push us to action. Yes, we can say that ’’ if they can do it, why not me ? Me too, I can do it.’’ You see, reading books, listen to tapes is a great resource to sharpen our spirit and our soul for what we want in life.

3 Dream big.

Faith has nothing to do with reality, common sens, logic. Faith means that you see the invisible as if you see it in real word. Most people only see what their eyes can perceive. It is hard and impossible for them to see the futur or look any situation through their spirit. This is the reason why dreaming big can help to train our mind to look beyong relity and step in in the invisible world, the erea of our life that makes anything happen. When you dream big, you see the end result of what you want in your life but it is not real yet. So you start to believe in your dream and to take all the actions needed to make it a reality. Note that your faith cannot be strenghened if you have lousy objectifs, what I mean here is that your target is something you already see with your eyes and you can touch it.

Big dream is not necessary something related to money such as making $1million or building a new entreprise, dream big may be believing strongly that you will be a good parent while your child is out of course. You may strongly hope that your spouse with whom you separated will come back to you one day. Dream big is also strongly believing that the community that you start today with zero resource and no members will grow and will change the world…. There are different ways of dreaming big. If we want to be a person of faith and we want a good life, we must have dreams and objectifs that are beyong our current means and power. If we want to make those dreams happen we will surely need an external help and something supernatural that I call here ‘God’.

4 Don’t curse your challenges

Faith means problems, challenges, setbacks and all kind of bad things that will surely come on your way to test your faith. Nobody can grow and become a mature person if he curses the problems that life handle to him. You have to embrace your challenges with joy and strong hope that you cannot be defeated by them. So, stop blaming your problems and start blessing them and look for solutions to overcome them by being full of strong faith that nothing can shake. I will finish this first step by reminding you that faith is a spiritual asset that only grow and develop under trials. So, you want to be a person of faith, get ready for trials after trials. The only way for you to breakthrough these trials will be to trust your God and yourself. Are you ready for that ?


Fear keeps us focused on the past or worried about the future. If we can acknowledge our fear, we can realize that right now we are okay. Right now, today, we are still alive, and our bodies are working marvelously. Our eyes can still see the beautiful sky. Our ears can still hear the voices of our loved ones. Thich Nhat Hanh

We are taught by every religion to have faith and to trust a High source of power that control everything. Although faith is one of the common spiritual values that comes often when it comes to cultivate spiritual values, the truth is that very few people can be called a man of faith or women of faith. When most people face an adversity they always fail to trust themselves not even that God can help them to defeat the problem they face. Why is that ? I think that the reason why most people do not practice faith is because they fall into four traps that are fatal to faith. These four traps are : fear, doubt, logic and impatience.


Fear is the direct opposite of faith and it is the number one reason why most people are defeated by their challenges and accept to live the life that they don’t want, settle for less they can be. When people face a difficult situation, instead of opposing a strong faith and a strong courage to the problem, they let themselves consumed by fears. Suppose that they were laid off from their job, they are immediately consumed by fears as they are thinking on how they will pay the bills, how they will pay the rent and what their life will be without a paycheck. That fear leads to all the nagative thinkings. All their mind is grabbed by anxiety and they become blind in their spirit as they completly fail to see the new opportunities that their new situation can give to them.

I am not trying to ask you not to feel any fear at all or to accept any difficult situation with cheer because there are opportunities behind them. We are human beings and it is good to be fearful at first when you are laid off or when you face a serious situation. What I am saying is that you have to go beyong your fear and the negative feeling after you are aware of the problem. Fear cannot solve your problem, what it does is to keep you focus on all the dark side of the problems intead of showing you the bright side of your problem. It is good to feel fearful at first when we receive a bad medical report but what happen then ? As the days are going, do we still nurture our fears by analyzing and searching for reasons of the problems we have ? Are we trying to find answers to questions like these : ‘’why we have that medical report ? How are we going to pay the doctors..? Why this ? Why that ?’’

What if litlle by little, we started to replace our fears by a strong faith and a great trust to our creator knowing that if it comes my ways it means that I can defeat it and that everything serve me and that I can overcome any challenges small or big  ? When you start believing that you can prevail, victory is on your side, your fears start disapearing and intead of seeing the dark side of your problems, you start thinking of the solutions and all the bright side of your challenges start coming to your mind. That is why it is very important to stop feeding your fears because they keep you in a position where you fail to solve your problems. They draw out of you all of your inner power to solve your difficulties. So never listen to your fears.


Faith never works with doubt. What doubt tells us is that : ‘’it is not possible and I cannot do that.’’ Why do we doubt ? Because we are looking the situation we face with our natural eyes. We cannot see it with our spirit. As human being we have the ability to see things whether with our physical eyes or our spirit eyes. But because we live in a physical world most people don’t even know that they have the ability to imagine something that is not yet and make it happen. Although all of us are enjoying the benefit of a modern life ( car, internet, plane, phone, building …) one of the secret of this modern life is that many visionaries have believed first in something that did not exist and they made it happen because of their faith. What would have happened if they have doubt that what they have imagined in their mind would be impossible to create ? They would not take the necessary actions to create them.

When we see a building, that means it has first existed in the mind of the owner of the building. It became real because he believed he could make it happen. If he had some doubts like most people have, he would not be able to make that building a reality. Whether it is a business, a church, a community of volunteers for a good cause, a political party… All of them came first from imaginations, something that nobody can see except in the mind of the person who imagines the thing he want to create. What doubt does is to kill a dream, to kill a hope, to kill imaginations and to put people in situations where they are prevented from the main tool that makes everything happen in the real world. That tools is faith. Anybody who refuses to doubt and has a srong faith can move all the mountain of his life that is what the Master, Jesus said.


Faith has nothing to do with logic and common sense. When you are deeply in debt and you live by paycheck, if you use the logic part of your mind, you may conclude in paper that you will spend 20 or 30 years to pay your debt. Why ? Because you have only calculated with your common sense, your reason, your logic. But what if you can imagine that you can make 10, 20 times even more the money you are earning today ? It is not impossible, What if the person to whom you owe money call you one or two years later to reduce 75% of your debt ? That option is also possible, yes, we see it happen in people’s life. What if a few years later you inherit big wealth or you get a promotion in your job ? So you have to see every situation you face with all the possibilties. Most of us have heard the stories of people who were healed from cancer although the doctors have predicted their death. We have also heared stories of people who have lost their job, their money etc but years later came back stronger and weathier than they were before. I think that if we want to explain these great coming backs with common sense and logic it will be hard and difficult to explain. What I want to explain here is that when we are in trouble : debt, jobless, poverty, sickness… we have to turn off the logic part of our mind and start looking for all the possibilities to solve our problems. What papers and graphics do is to analyze and show us all the impossibilities and to push us down and to focus on the dark sides of our problems instead of encouraging us to focus all our mind in all the solutions that are possible.


Impatience kills faith because patience works side by side with faith. It is hard for most people to wait today because we are taught to be in harry. But when we are in troubles we cannot fix the problems immediatly. I’m talking here of serious problem such as sickness, lack of money, deep debt, relationship problems… To fix these kind of problems you need to be patient and wait for a while. I know that it is uncomfortable to wait and that is why most people fail to solve their problems because of their impatience. For everything in life there is a set time. A pregnant woman whether it is comfortable or not shall wait 9 months before having her new baby. She does not have a choice otherwise she will lose her baby. Let say you have a broken relationships and you want to fix it. You cannot get any immidiate result because you have to wait for the time to pass by, until then you can cultivate new skills that can help you to have a better relationships.

When we start a new business, we have to wait until it will start to grow. If we want it to grow quickly the same day or the same week, we will get ourselves in trouble. We need to wait patiently and with comfort because, it is easy to start complaining and we will start saying ‘’ two weeks ago or one month ago I am waiting and I still have the same problem.’’ Faith has its laws and rules, it does not work with impatience and complainings. While you are doing your part of the job of solving your problems by taking massive actions, be comfortable and rejoice while waiting for your breaktrough.


Life journey is full of many contradictions and things that we cannot understand and explain. You work hard, you do your best at work but you don’t get the promotion. You do all your best to start a business but you don’t get the fund you are looking for to start the business. You do everything to your spouse but the marriage breake down. You always help other when they are in need but when your turn comes, nobody cares about your problem. Ten years or twenty years have passed but you did not get the breakthrough, your prayer did not get the answer you are looking for. Around you, you even see mediocre people who are blessed and posess things that you want to own for a long time. You work very hard, you take all the classes, but you don’t get the results you are looking for….These kind of situations happen for every person in their journey for a better life. The problem is that when we go through situations like these, we can become deeply disappointed, deeply frustrated, discouraged about life. We can completly loose our joy and even settle for less and deep bitterness for the rest of our life.

If somebody is going through a deep frustration, my objectif through this part of the ebbok is to bring back joy, faith and hope in the heart of the reader. Here are some practical solutions.


Like I say in the beginning, life is full of many contradictions that can steal our joy and our dream. While we are going through circumstances that are frustrating us, our attitude toward this sad situation can make a difference. Our attitude is how we handle the situation ? Do we camplain ? Are we angry ? Are we tempted to give up ? Are we jealous ? Honestly, most people are bitter and they weep when things are not going their way in life. I understand them. It is good to weep, to cry when we are going through hardship. But for how long do we weep and cry ? After weeping, we have to get up again and start with more zeal the race for a better life.

In the journey of life we cannot win if we have a weak attitude. We have to have a warrior mentality. When things go hard, that is the best moment to sharpen your mind and fight the good fight for a better futur and a good fight for a better life.

Your attitude is very important because if you fail to have a better attitude, your ennemy or the problem that you have can use it against you. No matter how diffilcult, how long the bad situation is, you have to keep a good attitude. When the wind blows in a sea, what determines if the boat will land safely or not is how the sail is set. If the sail is set well, no problems for the people in the boat but if the sail is bad, the people in the boat are in danger because the wind will break down the boat. Likewise, keeping a good attitude while you are in the storm of life can help you to land safely.

Your attitude must be stong, your attitude must be full of determination, your attitude must be full of zeal to continue the fight even though you get knock down too many times.


We cannot explain and understand why, although we have done our best we did not qualify for the loan of our dream house. We cannot undertand why our spouse leaves us although we are doing our best to have a better relationships. We cannot explain and understand why we are still single although we are doing our best to have a mate. Why is my financial situation did not change although I am doing my best to improve my finance ? Why is my health is poor although I am doing my best to have a good health ? Why is this ? why is that ? The moment you keep asking yourself these questions you will become down and sad. There are plenty of things in life that we cannot explain and the best attitude to have toward these things is to trust the Infinite Intelligence that what is going wrong in our life today, if we keep the good attitude, will absolutely work for our good not to destroy us.

Intead of focussing on the ‘’why’’ and trying to find an explanation or a reason, trust more and be aware that at the end if you did not give up, you will have the last laugh.


In your road to victory and total blessings, your adversary will laugh and makes life bitter for you if you start loosing energy because the fight is taking long than you think. If you start looking for your plan B and start playing the game in a wishy-washy way, that is how your ennemy will keep you in his trap.

The truth is that when the battle for a better life or the tremendous efforts we have made to achieve a dream fall appart, the temptation to settle for mediocre life or to bend our standards to the standards of average people is high. We can esealy find excuses since we have tried and tried but failed.

Don’t do that. No matter how hard you fail, if you don’t get your way, keep saying to yourself : « I did not come here to give up my dream » When the battle is tough your inner resources must be tough as well. Making some excuses will weaken your energy and you won’t have the power to continue to persue your dream.


When things are not going in your ways despite all of your efforts and in the same time other people with less efforts or even no efforts at all are enjoying the things you want, I do understand that it will be very painful, but you have to know that there is a reason for that. The journey for a better life or the achieving of any significant dream is full of tests after tests. Most of the times people who achieve more that the average people, pass unbelievable tests that can deeply beat or even kill the average people. That is why we call these great achievers, heroes.

You have to prove that you will be content and do your best even things are not going in your way. You have to prove that you will keep giving even though you are not receving, You have to prove that you will keep honoring people even though they treat you bad. You have to prove that you will keep your faith higher even though you are working and praying for many years and you don’t see anything in the external word.

Maybe it is probably the time for you to grow and develop a strong character. There are many things in life that we cannot learn through a class, a book… but only through a personal experience so that at the end you develop a spiritual masso. You cannot be strong if you are not put under pressure. You may not like it but if you stick with it, it will work for you. You are growing, you are becoming a mature person, you are becoming more applier, you are getting prepared for high responsibilities. You cannot get promoted without any preparation. If you get what you want or achieve your dream without any preparation, the things you get will be a burden and a heavy load for you, not a blessing. It will not help you, it will hurt you.

Your gift and talent can take you to a certain level of your life, but if you don’t have the required character for that gift, you will not stay there for a long time. Character is developped through tough time when we are not getting our way but we keep doing the best things.

Even if you are doing your best to earn more money and you did not see anything yet, even if it is a long time you are single and your efforts did not pay yet… Don’t get bitter, don’t give up. Your situation is not changing yet but you, you are changing, you are becoming a better person, you are growing, you are getting prepared for new level of your destiny.

It is easy to say that we have faith when things are going in our way. But what happen when we do our best and still have to wait for the things we want ? Do we loose our faith ? Can we continue to trust God ? Our character and the person we are becoming while pursuing a dream are more important than the dream or the things we want.

Remember, there are too many contradictions in life and the journey for a better life is sometimes bitter. Everyone has his share of frustrations and things that we cannot undersdand. you have to make up your mind that you are not going to let these things steal your joy, your happiness, your dream, your hope. Do what you can and trust God for the rest. Leave with this attitude: ’’even if my situation does not change, I am still going to be happy,’’ ‘’ even if I see somebody with more talent and things I want, I will not be envious or jealous,’’ ‘’If my spouse does not change, I will continue to treat her or him well, and I will be happy.’’ ‘’I will always leave in peace with myself ’’. If you continue to do that you will be like the forces of nature, you will be unstoppable and you will probably get all the things you want sooner or later. Can you do that ?
