Most people lack faith and are extremely doubtful and far too "hopeful" about reaching their goals. What you need is to start building more faith and manifesting your goals instead of "grinding" away at them while you rarely get results. How would you like to be able to achieve goals like Jesus? Walk on water and turn a few loaves of bread and some fish and feed it to millions? Maybe you won't be able to heal someone with your cloak, but I can bet you will reach goals a lot more consistently with the mindset that I lay out in this episode.
