This is quoted directly from what for many is the Law of Attraction Bible, “Think and Grow Rich” by Napoleon Hill, copyright 1937. Long LONG before “The Secret” which is now very popular. Of course, this science long predates that, and can be found in all of the scriptures, and far into antiquity.
But first, let me quote something from the intro to this book:
“In every chapter of this book, mention has been made of the money-making secret which has made fortunes for hundreds of exceedingly wealthy men whom i have carefully analyzed over a long period of years.
The secret was brought to my attention by Andrew Carnegie, more than half a century ago.”
This secret was the Law of Attraction, and can bring you not only money, but anything and everything you desire. First issue however, is figuring out what it is you want. If you aren’t sure what you want, you’ll get well, who knows what… And for most of us, that’s exactly what our lives look like.
Quoted from Think and Grow Rich:
FIRST: I know that I have the ability to achieve the object of my definite purpose in life; therefore, i demand of myself persistent, continuous action toward its attainment, and i here and now promise to render such action.
SECOND: I realize the dominating thoughts of my mind will eventually reproduce themselves in outward, physical action, and gradually transform themselves into physical reality; therefore, I will concentrate my thoughts for thirty minutes daily, upon the task of thinking of the person I intend to become, thereby creating in my mind a clear mental picture.
THIRD: I know through the principle of autsuggestion, any desire that i persistently hold in my mind will eventually seek expression through some practical means of attaining the object of it; therefore, i will devote ten minutes daily to demanding of myself the development of self-confidence.
FOURTH: I have clearly written down a description of my definite chief aim in life, and I will never stop trying, until I shall have developed sufficient self-confidience for this attainment.
FIFTH: I fully realize that no wealth or position can long endure, unless built upon truth and justice; therefore, I will engage in no transaction which does not benefit all whom it affects. I will succeed by attracting to myself the forces I wish to use, and the cooperation of other people. I will induce others to serve me, because of my willingness to serve others. I will eliminate hatred, envy, jealousy, selfishness, and cycnicsm, by developing love for all humanity, because I know that a negative attitude toward others can never bring me success. I will cause others to believe in me, because I will believe in them, and in myself. I will sign my name to this formula, commit it to memory, and repeat it aloud once a day, with full faith that it will gradually influence my thoughts and actions so that I will become a self-reliant, and successful person.
