March Magic Word Power – Elite Eight – GRATITUDE versus FAITH

In the beginning was the WORD
Saint John 1:1

Freedom Nation United March Magic Word Power

Elite Eight – Game One

An early mentor of mine reminded me that “Words matter, because Words express thoughts”

and

THOUGHTS, as Wallace Wattles so eloquently teaches us

in his seminal work “The Science Of Getting Rich”

TURN INTO MATTER.

Literally put,

IT IS WHAT YOU THINK ABOUT THAT YOU BRING ABOUT

🙂

So What does this mean to me, you ask?

How are we going to use this knowledge to change other peoples’ lives for the better, you ask?

🙂
