The Author's Magic Key: How to Stay on Track and Keep the Faith
Just as it takes three full seasons to reap the true rewards of The Author’s Money Tree, there are three necessary components to achieving your goals. Action. Thought. Faith. The final book in this trilogy, The Author’s Magic Key, focuses on helping you develop a strong faith in yourself. The Magic Key to Faith To see this plan through to fruition, you’ll need to have complete confidence and trust in what you’re doing. You’ll need to hold true to your goals even on those days when your progress seems slower than you’d like. One of the best ways to develop faith is to read the stories of others who have succeeded before you. This book is filled with many of the sources I often turn to for inspiration. Some of these people are authors. Others are business owners, actors, or athletes. They all have one thing in common: a strong, unwavering faith in their own abilities that was developed over time. The Magic Key to Focus They also have a laser focus on reaching their desired goals, whatever those goals may be. They visualize their desired result daily before taking action. And they train their brains with the use of affirmations, as recommended by Napoleon Hill: The method by which one develops faith, where it does not already exist, is extremely difficult to describe. Almost as difficult, in fact, as it would be to describe the color of red to a blind man. Faith is a state of mind that you may develop at will … Making repeated affirmations to your subconscious mind is the only known method of developing the emotion of faith voluntarily. (Hill, 1937) This book is filled with many teachers who can help you achieve your goals under any circumstance. Even if you don’t have any “cheerleaders” around you. The Magic Key to Endurance Let’s face it, some days are easier than others when it comes to sticking to any goal. We all have our moments of doubt. Sometimes, it would be easier to quit. It doesn’t matter who you are, you’re going to have setbacks. It’s at those times when you’ll need a little boost to help you get back on track. In this book, I’ve included the inspirational stories of several people who have succeeded before you. But I don’t want you to see their successes alone; in fact, I want you to see their failures. Because I want you to see how they got back up again—how they endured through difficult times—so you know you can do it, too. Whenever you’re struggling along your journey as an author, I hope you’ll pick up this book and read it. Remind yourself why you’re doing what you’re doing. Use these words to restore your faith and move forward.
