After reading many self-help books, I realized that many Great Thinkers believe in the existence of this Higher Power/Supreme Intelligence we call God. Brian Tracy, the famous motivational speaker, refers to this Power as the Super-conscious mind. Wallace D. Wattles, the late American author, calls it the Thinking Substance. These individuals believe that trusting this Power is essential for a successful life. Besides great thinkers, my parents and teachers have always stressed on the power of believing in God.
That being said, I wondered why so much emphasis is placed on believing in God. However, after I started my journey towards greatness I started believing in God because I realized the following:
- God Exists
The primary reason why you must believe in the existence of a Highly Intelligent Higher Power is that it exists. God is real folks.
I have never read any philosophical explanation that convinced me that God doesn’t exist. Atheists claim that life came from nothing. They argue that things just found themselves on this planet. This is bullshit because life cannot come from nothing. Nothing Can’t Create Something. Something has to create things, and this ‘something’ is God.
Furthermore, a close look at creation proves that God exists because nature appears to be designed by a designer. I love animals dearly, and every time I see them, I realize that they are designed in a way that accurately matches their way of living.
For instance, birds have hollow bones to enable flight? Fish have gills so that they can survive in water. The cheetah’s spine is flexible to enable high speeds. Who designed the gills, fins, and the cheetah’s spine? Did they just come from nowhere?
In 2014, I hit rock-bottom and doubted God’s existence because I wondered why he couldn’t take my problems away. I, therefore, read several books that attempted to prove God’s existence but they never made me believe in God. However, one day, while I was thinking about God’s existence, a friend popped into my room from nowhere and told me that God exists.
I wondered what made him tell me about God’s existence because I didn’t ask him. Also, I wondered what made him come at my place despite the fact that he rarely visited me.
Anyway, I concluded that God wanted to prove his existence through him. From this day, I have never doubted God’s existence.
God is Real folks.
- Life Becomes Purposeful
When you believe in God, your life becomes purposeful because you realize that God created you to fulfill a certain purpose. Studies show that many people who don’t believe in God think life is meaningless. These folks often succumb to depression or even commit suicide because they seldom find something meaningful to build their lives around
- You Will Have Faith in the Future
Recently, it dawned on me that people who truly believe in God have faith in the future. They believe that God is always ensuring that they have a better future. For this reason, they always have a peaceful state of mind because they believe God will make things to work out in their favor.
Personally, believing in God has also made me have great faith in both today and tomorrow because I believe that God, who cares for his creation, is creating a better future for me.
- You Will Set Bigger Goals
I also learned that many Great People achieved what we consider the impossible because they believed that a Higher Power was assisting them in everything they did.
‘Great people had an attitude of confidence that there was a power greater than themselves that was helping them.’ – Brian Tracy
It is hard to believe in the achievement of great things if you know you are working alone. However, when you believe that there is a God working with you in achieving whatever you want, you will have the audacity to set BIG and ‘unrealistic’ goals because you’ll be convinced that God, the Greatest Power in the Universe, will assist you in the achievement of your goals.
Therefore, if you believe in God, please keep believing. However, if you don’t believe in God, please start doing so because you will find life purposeful, you will have confidence in the future, and you will also believe that nothing is impossible for you.
My belief in God makes me work hard, and keep posting articles for you to read because I believe God brought me here to enlighten people. This belief also makes me believe that my dream of making this blog reach the whole world will come true because I’m working with the MOST POWERFUL FORCE IN THE UNIVERSE.
Therefore, I trust that nothing I want will be impossible for me to achieve because WITH GOD EVERYTHING IS POSSIBLE.
‘My confidence comes from knowing that there is something greater than myself that I am a part of and is also a part of me. I call that God. I do nothing without this understanding.’ – Oprah Winfrey.’
‘We struggle and Work Hard Because We Have Placed Our Hope in The Living God.’ – Saint Paul.

8 Key Learnings From Eckhart Tolle’s Book: A New Earth: Awakening to Your Life’s Purpose
Eckhart Tolle, in his book: A New Earth, teaches the negative effects of the ego, and the factors that strengthen it. Also, he teaches how to transcend the ego, and stop identifying yourself with temporary things.
The book enables readers to shift their consciousness and live a fulfilling life. Here are the primary lessons I learned from it.
- Stop Labeling Things
The naming of both living and non-living things results in us failing to realize the true nature of everything. Avoid labeling things, and you will realize that everything is a mystery.
For instance, when you see an ant, don’t call it ant, just see it as a six-legged creature with consciousness and you will realize how mysterious the ant is. Similarly, when you see a bird, don’t think of it as a bird, instead, think of it as a creature with flying abilities, and you will realize that the bird is a miracle.
‘When you don’t cover up the world with words and labels, a sense of the miraculous returns to your life that was lost a long time ago.’ – Eckhart Tolle
- How Companies Trick You Into Buying Useless Things At A High Price
Many companies make you buy valueless things at a high price by making you believe that these items will add immense value to your life. They make you believe that you will be happy or famous if you buy expensive products such as Gucci or Louis Vuitton bags. However, these products become valueless when many people buy them.
- How to let go of the attachment to material things
The attachment to material things is disastrous as it might result in chronic worry, anxiety, and unhappiness. We must, therefore, learn to let go of this attachment. But how do we let go?
Eckhart Tolle teaches that we can let go by realizing our attachment. Secondly, he teaches that this attachment disappears when we stop seeking happiness and security from these things.
- Poverty is a result of the ego
Everyone in this world can have more than enough. However, some egocentric individuals amass excess resources and force a large percentage of the world to share what is left. Their egos make them not to care that their greed is resulting in people lacking basic resources.
- The adverse effect of identifying yourself with your physical appearance
The modern society has been tricked into believing that beautiful, curvy girls and strong handsome men are the most valuable individuals. This belief has resulted in most of us using our physical appearance to determine our self-worth.
Little do we know that identifying ourselves with our physical appearance can lead to chronic stress and anxiety when our physical appearance fades. Beautiful girls and handsome men usually descend into depression when their beauty starts fading.
- The definition of Spiritual Awakening
According to Eckhart Tolle, spiritual awakening is the realization that what you think, experience, and perceive is not who you are, and that you can never find your true self in material things.
- 6 Main Things That Strengthen the Ego (Your Lower Self)
- Wanting to be right all the time.
- Showing off
- Feeling bad about other people’s success.
8. Give what you want to get what you need
Give anything you think people are not giving you. For instance, if people neither love nor respect you, you must start loving and respecting people.
You always receive what you give. Therefore, give away what you think is inadequate, and soon you will have more than enough. As Eckhart Tolle puts it, ‘whatever you think the world has failed to give you, you already have, but you will never know you have it unless you allow it to flow out.’

Abraham Hicks/Esther Hicks Presents the Five Powerful Steps of Getting What You Want
Esther Hicks is a great spiritual and inspirational teacher who mainly teaches The Law of Attraction. In one of my articles, I provided 15 Remarkable Esther Hicks’ Law of Attraction Quotes. The quotes will enable you to realize why you sometimes attract the things you don’t want.
Here, I will share Esther hicks’ main steps of getting what you want. Check these steps, realize the step you are in, and work on ascending to the fifth step.
- You See A Problem/Contrast
In step one you realize the things you don’t want, and what’s missing in your life. You also have questions you want God to answer. You, therefore, ask The Creator to fulfill your desires and give you answers.
In step one you mostly want The Creator to improve your life.
- Realize That The Creator is Fulfilling Your Requests
If you keep asking and focusing on your problems for a long time, you will remain in step one. Therefore, to advance to the next step, you have to realize that The Creator has already answered your prayers. Know that God has already gathered what you have asked for in the Spiritual Realm.
- Have An Attitude of Faith
Realize that you’ll get whatever you’ve asked for. Relax and don’t worry about the fulfillment of your desires.
In this stage, you must avoid struggle and thinking about your problems. Have an attitude of faith by knowing that the things you’ve asked for are coming. You don’t have to know how your prayers will be answered. Just believe that The Creator is fulfilling your desires every moment.
You must practice being in this stage, where you know that your prayers have been answered because life will always make you ask for more.
- Manage Your Vibration
In step four, you master the creative process.
You attain a peaceful state of mind, and you don’t get upset when things don’t go your way. You stop worrying about what’s missing because you know you can get whatever you want. You, therefore, become happy regardless of what is happening around you.
- Ravel In The Contrast
Here, you realize that everything you want is already yours, and you understand that contrasting experiences are part of the Ask-And-Receive process. You also master the ability to focus on the fact that The Creator is always fulfilling your desires.
I believe many people’s prayers are seldom answered because they don’t know the process of asking and receiving. Let’s try Abraham Hicks’ method and see if we can get our prayers answered. Thank You for reading.
