Think And Act Rich

Initially, we shall explore a few ways on how the rich act in accordance with their thinking and how we can apply these ways to encourage and guide us in doing the same.

Always keep in mind that you can attract as much money as you desire by knowing that it is all in the mind.

It is what you choose to think, and act upon, that produces the money you want. What you think will be, will be.

Control Your Expenses
When I was still young, I used to hear the expression: “Live within your means.” I think nowadays, we need to correct this expression by changing “within” to “below.”

These days, if we work for somebody or for a corporation, we need to set aside some savings which we can use for a “rainy day.” There is never enough savings, that is why we sometimes find a second job. And this is the reason why we want to improve our lives financially, by getting off the “rat race” and achieving financial freedom.

Sometimes, we have the uncontrollable habit of buying things we don’t actually need, especially when items are “on sale.” We stock up on things that are “on sale” thinking that we are saving.

At first thought, it seems we are, but on second thought, we are actually losing.

Foodstuffs get spoiled. Clothes go out of fashion. Appliances’ warranties expire even before they are used. Sometimes, they become defective due to prolonged storage. And new models are introduced which makes what you have on hand, obsolete or phased out.

This might probably be the reason why they are “on sale.” If you notice, most electronic appliances are expensive the first time they are introduced and they become cheaper in time.

We stock up on things thinking that a similar opportunity might not come our way the next time. I hate to say this but probably some products are excessively produced on purpose, to be put up “on sale” if not completely sold while regularly priced.

To some producers, it’s cheaper to sell at cost or minimum profit than to keep under storage, not to mention expiration dates. This is also one way to promote a product. You see, when people know that a certain product sometimes goes “on sale,” they always have the product on mind.

It’s free advertisement at its best. The product makers don’t lose money anyway. On the contrary, they make money.

All too often, even the rich people fall prey to this kind of promotion. The poor and middle class would say: “I might as well spend my savings on these items since little savings are not going to make me rich anyway.”

And you know what happens to your house if you keep on stocking up? You turn your house into a warehouse. There will be clutter everywhere, especially when your house isn’t big enough.

You buy things “on sale,” only if you intend to sell them for a profit and not for your own future consumption. Keeping a reasonable quantity is justifiable.

Be prudent. This is one habit that we need to improve or correct.

If you are making enough or more than enough, keep in mind that it is not how much you make that can make you rich. It is how much you spend and how much you keep.

Some of us have the habit of buying luxuries the moment we have the money or credit line for it. Most rich people, in spite of being rich, buy luxuries last.

With the money you keep, books are some of the best investments. They keep you skillful. They open up new horizons which can lead to creating wealth. The same thing is true with seminars, tapes, and other media related to acquiring financial knowledge.

Be Generous

Many people think that rich people are selfish, that’s why they have lots of money at hand. This may be true in some cases; however, there are a lot more individuals who are wealthy because they know how to give.

When you give something from your heart without expecting anything in return, you release a powerful force that will trigger your good deed to "bounce" back to you in amazing, and sometimes unusual ways.

Whenever possible, be generous in giving to others. You will notice that what you receive, or the return, will be more than what you give. As humans, we have the tendency to reciprocate what we receive. But don’t give for the sake of expecting something in return. Give freely from your heart, and the rewards would be greater.

The act of giving can summon the spirit of joy to come into your heart. How would you feel when you've given something to your less fortunate neighbors? Let me tell you that nothing could brighten up a day more than hearing them express their most heartfelt gratitude and seeing their smiles extend from ear to ear.

Giving is also a healthy habit. It could prolong your life by instilling within you an inner sense of peace and accomplishment.

What you give doesn’t necessarily have to be something material. It can also be time, effort, talent, service, or even an affectionate feeling.

Just like all things in life, giving has its limitations. Being too generous can have its toll. Your kindness might be taken advantage of and people might abuse your good intentions. Beware of individuals who are continuously seeking your aid. It's better to teach them how to solve their problems than to always attend to their needs.

As the saying goes ...

"Give them some fish and you'll feed them for a day. Teach them how to fish and you'll feed them for a lifetime."

Lastly, here's what I consider the most important rule about giving. Keep your good deeds to yourself. Don't announce to the whole world that you've donated $100,000 to your favorite charity or that you've helped save a child from a life-threatening disease.

If you really desire to give, do it secretly and in private.

Some people would write "anonymous" rather than their own names when they've made a contribution. The universe smiles upon these individuals, and they will get their just rewards in due time.

Consider this: If you are on the giving end, doesn’t it mean that you are in a better position than the recipient? Doesn’t it complement your character?

Program Yourself For Riches!

There is no doubt that thoughts do direct your actions. And thoughts do have power and can help you accomplish many things. What you think is what you do and who you are. If you think poverty, you will always live in poverty. If you think of prosperity, you will always be prosperous. The secret is to the way you program your mind.

Some people have a sense of entitlement and actually depend on others to cater to their will.
This is the mindset they have.

It was programmed into them from the beginning. Because of this mindset, these people fail every time they seek to establish anything in life for themselves. Whether it involves going into business, making friends, or whatever else they do, if they have the mindset that the world should cater to them, they are doomed to everlasting misery and loneliness.

And there are people who are kindhearted but have been hurt so many times in their lives that they have been programmed to believe that relationships mean pain, so they avoid dating or getting into a relationship.

There are people who are good, hard working people, whose only goal in life is to make something of themselves and do so without hurting others.

They put on the mentality that they can’t get rich because the rich are bad people. That the rich are mean and will defraud others quickly to make lots of money. Because of this mentality, they never get rich, but only live from paycheck to paycheck.

As you can see there are many scenarios of people who function in life based on their core beliefs or programming, instilled into them since they were babies, or which they had learned at some point in their lives, which resulted in a shift in their thinking and awareness.

There are people who will actually commit self-sabotage because they don’t know any better.

They think they are doing the right thing but in fact they set themselves up for failure every time they try something.

And if you try to reason with them about it, and explain to them what they are doing, they just look at you blankly and claim that everything that happens to them is based on other people, the economy, or other factors, but they will not look at themselves as the problem.

This is because they only look at things from the conscious level. What they see in front of them is what they believe. They only go by what input they receive in their conscious mind and this is the root of their problems. They can only see or think about what is in their conscious mind and that limits their abilities beyond all comprehension. If the eyes can play tricks on you, well, the conscious mind can also play tricks on you.

If you listen to your conscious mind, you won’t get far because you will only perceive what you see in front of you. But if your subconscious mind has been programmed properly, you can experience untold amounts of prosperity. On the other hand, if your subconscious mind was program incorrectly you can end up believing wrong things such as:

Rich people are evil. This is how they get rich. They are pompous, arrogant, and dishonest in the way they deal with others. And in order to get rich you have to be just like them.

Poor people are special because they have no money to keep them tied down so they can go out there and do whatever comes to mind to make them happy. They are mainly nice people whose only goal in life is to make a living for their family and die penniless.

It is the right thing to be poor.

It is a spiritual aspect of oneself to be in a poor state. This way you stay humble and worship God the way he wants you to without restrictions.

These are just some of the types of programming we often face. But these are not the only beliefs we had programmed into our subconscious. We also have other ideas and thoughts including reasons why we lack greatness and have no prosperity in life.

Everything we absorb in our everyday existence affects us not only consciously but subconsciously as well. Why? Because what gets fed into our conscious goes into our subconscious. If you read a good book you have happy thoughts. If you read a book on horror, nine times out of ten you will have a nightmare. If you focus on what the news presents, you will start absorbing this into your brain, which will have an effect on you either for good or for bad.

Remember, the way you act now is the way you were programmed from the past. This is an important concept you must understand and retain.

The life you have right now, no matter what you have or don’t have, the way you act or don’t act, the attitudes you have or don’t have; every part of your very being is the direct result of the way you were programmed from when you were born till your present moment.

Every single step you took, you were programmed to do. Every word you heard from someone, you took and placed into your conscious. And what happens to input that goes into the conscious? That’s right, it goes into the subconscious for processing, which in turn creates a reaction, or what was processed is stored in memory for later retrieval.

Every day of your life, from the day you were born to the present, you were being programmed. But the question is: which type of programming did you receive? If you received good programming you’ll end up being a good person with strong character and moral ethics, who will in turn be guided by the right principles. However, if you are programmed incorrectly, you could end up becoming a juvenile delinquent, a drug abuser, an alcoholic, or even a prisoner in a jail.

When you are programmed incorrectly, this programming may not be bad in itself. It may just be stated in a way that downplays who you really are.

For example, if you are born into a particular race, and for years that race was downtrodden because of hatred and prejudice, this core belief or programming may be given to you at some point when you are young and that programming will go into your conscious mind then into your subconscious mind for processing.

The end result is that when the child faces a situation where his ethnicity or race is challenged, he’ll remember that programming and he’ll take some kind of drastic step to relieve the pain or anguish he may feel based on what associations he had developed with that programming when it occurred the first time. Unfortunately, what often happens in this kind of situation the person ends up committing murder or suicide.

Another kind of scenario may be when a person is born with a silver spoon in his mouth.

This means the person is born in a family that is richer than anyone else in the community.

This child will have been programmed from infancy to believe that money is the most important concern in the world, that nothing else matters in life but to have money. This child is programmed to understand the laws around money and to learn to grasp money as if it was their god. They are told in their programming to respect money as a weapon to achieve greatness in life, and to look down on anyone who does not have money like the child’s family does. This does occur in the homes of the filthy rich and is unfortunate because it leads the child to accept the notion that rich people are better than anyone else.

Of course, there is the other extreme. A child could be born from an unwed mother living in the ghetto.

She may program her child to accept the fact he will be poor all of his life. And because of this he will grow up to be poor, or maybe get into trouble with the law.

Or imagine a person who has been conditioned about starting a business.

On the other hand, the person described above could become so hesitant about starting a business, all because of his programming, that he misses a great opportunity to make it big in a business venture and get rich.

Unfortunately, these kinds of situations happen to many people every single day. It all stems from their programming. It has so much to do with your mindset and what was planted there from birth to the present day. And you may not even know it because it came in such a way that you didn’t know you received it. It was like subliminal messages.

This is why it is so vital that you monitor your thoughts as you progress through the day.

You don’t want to focus your time and attention on aspects of any input that may disqualify you from getting the proper programming you need to overcome any previous programming that may have affected you in an adverse way.

That could be compared to a garden. If you plant a bunch of seeds you do not want to just leave them there to grow without taking care of them. If you leave the garden unattended, what will happen is that weeds will grow among the plants. The weeds will grow along with the plants and maybe even become a part of the plants or suffocate them by grabbing a lot of the soil's nutrients.

To overcome such a problem, the garden needs to be cultivated and cared for on a regular basis.

A garden well cared for will produce an abundance of plants and vegetables to the delight of the grower.

This goes for the conscious and subconscious mind.

If you continue to feed negative thoughts into your conscious mind, these thoughts will be processed in your subconscious mind. In turn they will be used to serve their purpose at the necessary time.

But if you feed your conscious mind upbuilding or good thoughts, these will also get processed in the subconscious mind and stay in memory for use at a later time. Don’t forget one principle here.

The subconscious mind does not know what is right or wrong. It doesn’t know what is good or bad. It only processes what it receives. And that is all it does. You have to be in control of what the subconscious mind processes. It is by your vigilance that you can prevent bad thoughts from getting into your mind and causing you pain and frustration later.

In some cases, you may have to completely alter your core beliefs in order to replace them with more productive beliefs. As you learn and grow in life and you realize what He was programmed by his father who was also self-employed, but failed at his business, to accept the fact that once he starts a business he will fail within two years. Now he could go into this business venture he wants to get involved with without thinking about it or doing any research and end up losing his shirt because he wasn’t careful enough.

This is mainly the result of his programming.

He thought he could get rich fast, but when he entered into the actual business, his previous programming intervened and caused him to sabotage his business to the point where he failed and lost out.

you need to do to become prosperous and wealthy, a lot of your previous programming will need to be replaced or you will need to reprogram your subconscious mind so you will have the right mindset to forge ahead and become the person you want to be.

The best way to overcome previous programming is to replace that programming with new programming. This means continued affirmations.

You need to change your mindset with words and phrases that will up build you and help you develop a better personality.

There are many steps you can take to help you to change your previous programming so as to reflect the new programming. It will take time, patience, and perseverance, but the time involved will produce results.

You just need to decide for yourself if you want to change. If you don’t want to change, you won’t. But if you do want to change, you will. It is control and will power that will determine whether you change or not.

Some people have to get so desperate that they are forced to change when they realize the present course they are facing will lead them nowhere or to disastrous results. But if you act right away, you won’t have to hit rock bottom or face a calamity before you decide to change.

You will have decided that change is required and will take the necessary steps to secure this change.

Just as with computers, subconscious programs can be changed. Operating systems have patches that alter the way the software works. When these patches are applied, they change the settings in the system so as to allow the new settings to take effect and work. Then the operating system has a new way of working. In some cases, these changes may help the user tremendously.

These changes can also provide more functionality and security. This is why upgrading or reprogramming is so important.

If computers go through this, what do you think about the human brain? In order for your brain to function properly and to provide you with everything you need to enjoy and envision life the way you want, you will need a patch job for your conscious and subconscious mind.

You will need to download the program into your conscious, which will feed into the subconscious, and in turn the subconscious will process this new program, and hold it in memory for future use, and/or provide results immediately to the person who received the new programming.

This is the primary way of change. By changing your programming, you can literally change your life and your core beliefs. This is what matters most in life and everyone has a chance to accomplish goodness in their lives if they undertake this challenge and replace old worn-out, self-defeating tapes, and replace them with upbuilding, thoughtprovoking tapes that will alter the programming for good.

Your Unlimited Power To Become Rich!

You may not realize it, but the mind is very powerful.

It is unlimited in potential. You can create anything you desire just by letting the mind do what it was created by God to do.

Once you begin to understand the power of the mind, and learn the laws of the universe, you can reprogram your subconscious so you can obtain anything you want in life and live life to the fullest.

If you think about one thing for a minute it is this: you do not need to struggle in life to make something of yourself.

All you need to do is apply the principles set out in this ebook and the new programming you will receive will turn your life around.

Life does have a purpose for you and will give you abundance if you program your mind in that direction.

Once you learn and apply the principles and techniques required to alter your programming, enhance your mind’s functions, and improve the way your mind can develop, you can have anything you want or desire.

It just takes a single step and understanding of the mechanism to appreciate what it does.

The mind has a great deal of power as was stated above. It has the ability to heal all diseases. But yet, in the average person, only 10% of the mind is used, which results in 90% not being utilized.

Imagine what we could do if we used the full capacity our mind can muster.

Every person on this planet has the same capacity in their brain but not everyone uses it.

If we were to take a handful of people together and tap into their entire brain function, we could brighten a city for at least a week.

This is how powerful the mind is. It is just the choices we make and the beliefs we were programmed with that separate us from successful individuals.

It is really the programming that we received from birth to the present that shapes who we are and what we do.

We have the capability to do marvelous things, but it is our belief system and our faith that allows us to take part in some events in our lives or not.

Our belief system or programming is what sets us apart from other people. Everyone on this planet has a belief system in place that guides their thinking, reasoning, and functions.

Whether these people take part in sports, have a trade, or are lifetime students, the origin is the same. They got to where they are because they knew the power of the human mind and they utilized it to its fullest.

You have the ability to have and do whatever you want if you satisfy all the conditions that will allow you to use your powerful mind to the greatest degree. You first have to be aware of what you want.

The next step is to desire what you want. The next step involves your pre-processed programming – your beliefs. If your beliefs will allow the situation to occur, it will. But if your beliefs will not allow it to occur, you won’t do it.

This is why the idea of subconscious programming is so important.

It is the mechanism by which your old thought processes can be changed so you will have new beliefs.

As a matter of fact, there have been studies done that showed people accomplishing great feats with the power of their mind. Acknowledging this power and using it beneficially is what will help you take the first step toward realizing your goal of obtaining whatever it is you want.

You can prosper with no problem once you understand the power of your mind, and use it for the purpose it was created for: to give you everything and anything you want in life.

But before you can do anything you must be open to the world of your mind, and see the immense power your mind has.

In order to do this we first tap into our subconscious. Many of these terms will be covered later in chapter two, but it would be good to summarize them here so as to give you a head start as it were.

The Subconscious Mind
The subconscious mind acts as the translator to the conscious mind. It is given commands by the conscious mind and fulfills those commands with ease.

The subconscious mind is also referred to as the go-between between the conscious and superconscious mind.

In order to program your mind to do what you want it to do, you first have to understand the subconscious mind and how it works, or you won’t know how to program the mind.

You must learn how to control the subconscious mind so you can learn how to reprogram it.

Only then will you have the ability to achieve personal development and reach the empowerment that only your mind can give you. Once you reach this plateau, you will be able to command anyone and get anything you want. Only then will you have fulfilled your dreams of living your life to the fullest.

And what is so special about the procedure is that it really does not take long to perform the exercises you need to gain control and reprogram the subconscious mind.

Developing your understanding of the power of the mind starts with knowing two laws or principles.

These two laws are The Law of Vibration and The Law of Attraction. If you are unfamiliar with these laws they will be covered briefly below.

Just know before these two laws are discussed, that when you understand these two laws and how they apply to the subconscious mind, you will begin to see how powerful the mind really is.

The Law of Vibration
The Law of Vibration seems easy to understand but can be complicated to those who do not know how it works.

The one principle you will take away from this discussion is that The Law of Vibration will always be here among us and always works, whether we choose to believe it or not.

The Law of Vibration states that everything in the universe, no matter what it may be, is energy. Energy makes up the entire universe.

You place a particle under a very powerful microscope and you will see molecules. These molecules are in a constant state of movement. If we looked inside a molecule we would see an atom. And inside this atom you will find a proton in the center with an electron circling around.

This is energy vibrating. Everything vibrates at different rates or speeds. When the vibration is within our ability or frequency range, we can hear or see the vibrating source of energy.

Because we were created by God or by some infinite spirit or consciousness (as some like to call it), this higher power vibrates as well.

And since we are a part of this creation or consciousness, we are also energy in the form of a body. We vibrate like anything else. Every part of us is a vibration including our thoughts and sounds.

Light is also vibrating. Since we know our bodies vibrate and our thoughts also vibrate, then if we become aligned with the universe in vibration, we will be able to attract whatever the vibrations point to.

But our thoughts, which go back to our conscious and subconscious, must vibrate in tune to the universe for us to achieve what we wish.

This is why we must monitor our thoughts within our conscious and subconscious so as to make sure all input is in vibration or harmony with the universe.

The Law of Attraction
Just as we have the Law of Vibration, we also have The Law of Attraction. The Law of Attraction is a universal law that states that there is a cause and effect to everything we think and do.

If we think about a particular thing, we end up getting it. Just as it is important to learn about The Law of Vibration, you must also learn about The Law of Attraction. If you want to learn how to attract anything you desire you need to set up an attraction for it. To do this, you must make sure your thoughts within your subconscious mind are geared toward what you are trying to attract.

If they aren't, you won’t get it, instead you will get what you don’t want, because your subconscious mind thought it.

The Law of Attraction is something that exists apart from you. It exists and therefore it is. The Law of Attraction is a universal law that never goes away. You can control it to some degree by what you vibrate to; by what your thoughts are geared to. The end result is simple, if you reprogram your subconscious mind to vibrate with the universe, you can get anything you want just by thinking it.

The Function of the Subconscious Mind
Now that you know the two different laws that work with the subconscious mind to grant you what you want and to provide the effective programming you will need for prosperity, you would do well to focus on the subconscious mind itself.

Knowing how the subconscious mind functions will be a stepping stone toward controlling it.

When you think of the subconscious mind you may think of it as the brain. If you did you would be wrong. The brain is not the mind, but the brain makes up a part of the mind.

The mind uses the brain to carry out its functions as required.

The conscious mind is used to take in input through all five human senses and interprets this input.

It then sends these interpretations to the subconscious mind for processing. The subconscious mind then manages these inputs by controlling what they do to the body or by what action the person takes. Your intuition or psychic powers arise from your subconscious mind.

If you want to focus on getting something, all you have to do is start the process by thinking about what you want, then that thought will proceed to your subconscious mind, which in turn will act on your thought, which will be in vibration with the universe, and the result – you will obtain what you thought about.

And what is amazing about the subconscious mind is the fact that it is always working. It never stops functioning.

This is why you have dreams at night. The subconscious has processed all information and is ready to deliver the result to you, either through your dream, or by you obtaining what you thought about or wanted.

The main thing is that you, or we should say, your subconscious, must be in total vibration to the universe for you to get whatever it is you desire.

This means your programming in your subconscious must be in line with what you desire for you to get it. If this programming is not in alignment, you will not be in vibration, which in turn will cause you not to get what you wanted or desired. This is why you must be in total alignment with the universe. And by having your thoughts vibrating this way, you will be in alignment.

To recap, you must understand how the The Law of Vibration, The Law of Attraction, and the subconscious mind work, in order to be able to get what you want in life and to live life abundantly in prosperity.

The whole principle works simply by the conscious mind taking in the input, which can be from all five senses; it will then take this and interprets what it receives. The conscious mind then transmits this to the subconscious mind for processing and acting on.

During this stage, if the subconscious mind has any programming held in memory that is in opposition to the thoughts being processed, there is no vibration and no alignment to the universe. And when that happens, the desire or want will fail to materialize.

To obtain anything you want in life, you must make sure your pre-programmed subconscious mind is right and in tune to the vibrations of the universe. If it is not in line with and vibrating to the universe, you'd better undergo changes in your mindset and alter the programming so you will be in tune and vibrating in harmony with what you want.

Another way to look at how the mind works between the conscious and subconscious is to think of it from this point of view: when you develop a thought, it is analyzed by the conscious mind which then starts to send electro-chemicals within the brain. As the electro-chemicals travel through the brain, neural pathways are opened and the data passes through the brain.

As the data travels, additional cells throughout the brain are imprinted with the data being processed. The conscious mind then attaches emotion to the thought based on its perceived interpretation of the data. This increases the vibration of the thought and at that time a belief is established. This belief is then stored in the subconscious mind. This belief could be based on truth, reality, or a lie. It depends on where the thought came from and how it was interpreted. This data can then be accessed and utilized in the future by the conscious mind to either support or deny any further thoughts that are inputted into the conscious mind.

When the conscious mind receives the same input again, it is the job of the subconscious mind to locate and provide that data which was stored previously, send it back to the conscious mind with an emotion of some type included, which was also stored previously with the data, which will create a vibration based on the frequency of the data presented.

If this previously stored data matches the vibration of the universe, there is an alignment and the result is the creation or manifestation of what that thought was intended to provide.

This really is not a hard process to achieve. It just takes work and determination, and having faith doesn’t hurt either. You must always remember that the subconscious mind does not know the difference between what is real or imagined. It only responds to what is fed to it. So for it to work correctly, you must be sure of what you are feeding it, and what has already been fed before, if you really want to succeed at the game of subconscious programming or mind control.

Think And Act Rich

Initially, we shall explore a few ways on how the rich act in accordance with their thinking and how we can apply these ways to encourage and guide us in doing the same.

Always keep in mind that you can attract as much money as you desire by knowing that it is all in the mind.

It is what you choose to think, and act upon, that produces the money you want. What you think will be, will be.

Control Your Expenses
When I was still young, I used to hear the expression: “Live within your means.” I think nowadays, we need to correct this expression by changing “within” to “below.”

These days, if we work for somebody or for a corporation, we need to set aside some savings which we can use for a “rainy day.” There is never enough savings, that is why we sometimes find a second job. And this is the reason why we want to improve our lives financially, by getting off the “rat race” and achieving financial freedom.

Sometimes, we have the uncontrollable habit of buying things we don’t actually need, especially when items are “on sale.” We stock up on things that are “on sale” thinking that we are saving.

At first thought, it seems we are, but on second thought, we are actually losing.

Foodstuffs get spoiled. Clothes go out of fashion. Appliances’ warranties expire even before they are used. Sometimes, they become defective due to prolonged storage. And new models are introduced which makes what you have on hand, obsolete or phased out.

This might probably be the reason why they are “on sale.” If you notice, most electronic appliances are expensive the first time they are introduced and they become cheaper in time.

We stock up on things thinking that a similar opportunity might not come our way the next time. I hate to say this but probably some products are excessively produced on purpose, to be put up “on sale” if not completely sold while regularly priced.

To some producers, it’s cheaper to sell at cost or minimum profit than to keep under storage, not to mention expiration dates. This is also one way to promote a product. You see, when people know that a certain product sometimes goes “on sale,” they always have the product on mind.

It’s free advertisement at its best. The product makers don’t lose money anyway. On the contrary, they make money.

All too often, even the rich people fall prey to this kind of promotion. The poor and middle class would say: “I might as well spend my savings on these items since little savings are not going to make me rich anyway.”

And you know what happens to your house if you keep on stocking up? You turn your house into a warehouse. There will be clutter everywhere, especially when your house isn’t big enough.

You buy things “on sale,” only if you intend to sell them for a profit and not for your own future consumption. Keeping a reasonable quantity is justifiable.

Be prudent. This is one habit that we need to improve or correct.
If you are making enough or more than enough, keep in mind that it is not how much you
make that can make you rich. It is how much you spend and how much you keep.
Some of us have the habit of buying luxuries the moment we have the money or credit
line for it. Most rich people, in spite of being rich, buy luxuries last.
With the money you keep, books are some of the best investments. They keep you
skillful. They open up new horizons which can lead to creating wealth. The same thing is
true with seminars, tapes, and other media related to acquiring financial knowledge.
Be Generous
Many people think that rich people are selfish, that’s why they have lots of money at
hand. This may be true in some cases; however, there are a lot more individuals who are
wealthy because they know how to give.
When you give something from your heart without expecting anything in return, you
release a powerful force that will trigger your good deed to "bounce" back to you in
amazing, and sometimes unusual ways.
Whenever possible, be generous in giving to others. You will notice that what you
receive, or the return, will be more than what you give. As humans, we have the tendency
to reciprocate what we receive. But don’t give for the sake of expecting something in
return. Give freely from your heart, and the rewards would be greater.
The act of giving can summon the spirit of joy to come into your heart. How would you
feel when you've given something to your less fortunate neighbors? Let me tell you that
nothing could brighten up a day more than hearing them express their most heartfelt
gratitude and seeing their smiles extend from ear to ear.
Giving is also a healthy habit. It could prolong your life by instilling within you an inner
sense of peace and accomplishment.

Every action starts with a thought. This is what guides us and helps us deal with life on its own terms.

When we have to make decisions we use our faculty of the brain to think and reason about what we are facing so we can come to some positive conclusion that is most beneficial to ourselves and hopefully to those around us.

It doesn’t matter what our station in life may be, we all use the same avenue that allows us to make decisions by what we experience, see or hear.

If we think bad thoughts, bad things happen to us. If we think good thoughts, good things happen to us.

This way of thinking we believe comes from our consciousness. It dictates the way we think and reason about what has happened in our life and has a direct influence on the outcome of whatever problem or issue we happen to face.

This conscious level controls how we discern our surroundings at any given time.

But did you know that the conscious level of the mind is only involved in what we perceive?

That’s right.

The conscious level only takes in what the eyeballs and ears take in and initially deposit that information. However, the process does not end there, for another step is involved.

There is another level of the brain that has more control over our thoughts than the conscious level does. This is the subconscious. The subconscious is what really processes our thoughts that come into our conscious mind.

The subconscious mind takes those thoughts and processes them for us to act on. The final process is delivered to our conscious mind in the form of feedback that we interpret as our thoughts.

These thoughts also direct our emotions. As you can see the thought process is very powerful.

When these thoughts come to our conscious mind, they may or may not be in harmony with our programming - programming that was ingrained into us when we were little ones. This is programming we received starting at the day of our birth. And so we may reject some thoughts because of our limited beliefs.

But what exactly is the subconscious mind?

You can think of the subconscious mind as something like a computer. When you first purchase a computer you have the hardware that allows it to function the way it was intended.

You have the box the CPU is stored in, the monitor, keyboard, mouse, CD or DVD drive, and hard drive. Everything is there and in place. There is one problem, though. Without the operating system that computer is worthless. The operating system is a set of written code, or instructions if you will, that controls all the hardware on your system.

As soon as the operating system is installed on your computer, suddenly it works and you can now use it for whatever your purpose was when you turned it on.

Plus, you can add more programming to it so it can perform all sorts of different functions besides the basics it came with.

When you perform a task, you are doing it without thinking about what the computer is doing. However, the computer is constantly sending electronic signals back and forth just so you can use that software. You are not conscious of it, but it works.

The mind works the same way.

You have the conscious mind, which as stated before is our current state of awareness. This is where we receive images and hear sounds that are interpreted as thoughts in our consciousness. If you compare the conscious to the computer, the conscious would be a text editor.

You bring it up on your screen and start typing a document. As we type the words on the screen, we are constantly making decisions as to what to say, if the format is right, the spelling is correct, etc.

In our brain, our conscious is the decision maker to a degree.

It takes in all our input and tells the subconscious when to go to work to process that input. After the subconscious mind does what it needs to do, the conscious mind reacts to the results the subconscious mind produces then decides what to do next and feeds that information to the subconscious for processing.

If you compare the subconscious mind to the computer, it is the operating system. It contains all our memory, habits, beliefs, personality, and more. The subconscious mind also controls the body.

It will store information and act on it. The subconscious acts on whatever it is given by using predefined instructions (just as an operating system does) that basically tells it what to do and how to do it. Of course, the body itself is the output of the computer, or the screen. It responds to the programming by doing or reacting to what was intended by the subconscious mind. And what is awesome about this whole endeavor is that it does all this automatically.

Therefore, the mind has two areas or functions – the conscious and subconscious.

Without these, we would be just like a computer without the operating system – a box of hardware that does absolutely nothing.

This is why conditioning or feeding the subconscious mind the correct input is vital to our existence.

Think about it. If you have a bad experience at some point in your life, your conscious mind will take that in as input and send that input to your subconscious mind for processing.

The result is that bad experience will stay locked up in your memory bank for later recall.

So when you face that same or similar experience later, the subconscious automatically retrieves the memory so you can feel the same sensations you did previously.

Not everyone knows that there is a non-physical barrier that lies between our conscious and subconscious that works to prevent anything from reaching our subconscious mind that is not in harmony with what our previous programming was.

This can be a good thing, for it protects us from any negative thoughts or prevents any unknown or unwanted thoughts from entering into our subconscious mind.

If this area of our brain is designed to prevent unwanted thoughts from entering our subconscious, how did we get programmed in the beginning? Let’s take a look at this to see how this was possible.

When we examine programming we find there are three types we go through in life. The first one, genetic, is part of our heritage.

It is programming that comes from our genes. This includes how our body functions, our personality, the talents we develop, etc. The second type of programming involves our environment.

This is what we learn as we grow up including our name, our sense of who we are and what we are about, how to read and write, how to dress, how to keep ourselves clean, eventually how to drive when we get old enough, how to get along with others around us, and more.

The programming receive from our environment also includes what we learned from our parents, TV, the movies, our peers, our teachers, what we read, what we are told from others, and commercials on TV and radio.

Anything that originates in the environment has to do with this type of programming.

The third type of programming, is one you will normally not hear about or read about, because it is an area of our brain that scientists have kept secret because they are either scared by it, or don’t fully understand it.

This third level of programming has to do with what is referred to as mass mind. or “race mind” as certain people call it. Some call it human race consciousness. Some doctors also called it the collective unconscious.

This is the type of programming that we absorb without even knowing it and includes the beliefs and attitudes we have about our family, our country, our culture, our ethnic background, and our socio-economic status in life.

The reason this type of programming is rarely discussed in psychiatry or even in medical journals is because we don’t even realize this is programming. We think it is just a way we run our lives and we accept it that way.

We are programmed the same way a computer is programmed. We are fed thoughts just as a computer is fed thoughts, only our programming is done by actual words, while a computer is programmed by machine language or code. This code is in the form of numbers and is done in a logical sequence.

Subconscious programming is not done simply by thoughts that are repeated over and over on a consistent basis.

Instead, it involves neurological patterns that occur within our cellular structure. And since our bodies are made up of millions of cells, whatever is in our subconscious mind can affect our health for good or bad.

This is why if we are to try to change our lives, we need to do more than change our thoughts, we have to go deeper than that and change our programming.

Changing our programming involves many series of steps and processes that will be discussed in this ebook. The main point to remember here is that our cellular level has to change if we want our bodies and our lives to change.

There are two ways in which we can reprogram ourselves.

The first way is what scientists call the “quantum leap” method. This is when you get a conscious awareness of some extreme event that literally changes your thoughts and attitudes.

An example of a change like this could be when someone has been diagnosed with a fatal disease and knows he will die in a certain time, but suddenly a miracle occurs and the person is cured of the disease. The other way to reprogram our minds is through repetition and reinforcement.

It is not just a matter of saying a word or phrase over and over again.

You must perform some technique that will break that barrier that prevents certain thoughts or signals from gaining entry into the subconscious area. This area is very strong and impermeable. It is like using a hammer on a cement block.

If you strike it enough times you will chip away at it; so too with the brain. You have to feed it a lot of continuous thoughts that basically repeat the same words or phrases over and over again.

It is like learning a new skill.

Unless you are a genius or extremely intelligent, you have to practice that skill for a time until you have it so ingrained in your mind that it becomes a part of you or becomes second nature, because the repetition has entered your subconscious mind and is now working from there.

If you ever bought subliminal tapes you will find they work because the signals or thoughts do not push into that barrier.

Instead the signals go directly into the subconscious and plant themselves there. And as the thoughts are being directed to you, your subconscious mind collects these thoughts and retains them, and locks them away in your memory banks forever.

In the upcoming pages, you will learn techniques that will help you to change your mindset and alter your subconscious programming so that you can change your way of thinking and live life the way you intend.

You will become educated on how the human mind works and you will see how much power the human mind has. This will help guide you in the right direction so you’ll have a better understanding as to the proper way to alter your subconscious mind.

Every step in the process may seem intimidating to you at first because you have held your beliefs for so long that any change will seem scary if not downright terrifying.

But it is at this time you have to put your blinders on and just go with the process, otherwise you will never see change occur in your life.

Anthony Robbins said it best when he mentioned in one of his audio recordings that people live in a comfort zone. Whether it is good or bad, they live in a zone that they are familiar with.

What may seem to us as pain is pleasure to them.

If this description fits you, the only way to turn your life around is to be convinced that your pain is not pleasure but pain.

This will force you to want change. This can be done with subconscious programming.

But the initial stage has to be set and that begins with you. You are the one who has to decide to change.

No one else can make that decision for you. It really depends on how badly you want change.

If you are tired of living in your pain but want to live in peace, joy, pleasure, and have a good life, you need to alter your thoughts and those altered thoughts will in turn lead you to change which will in the end change your feelings.

Your life will actually take on a new meaning and you’ll be grateful you took the step forward. So if you are ready to take the plunge and begin the life-long process of change, you need to take that first step and that involves your mindset.

But before we get into that you must understand the mind itself before you can learn about thoughts and how the mind uses and stores thoughts.

Without further ado, let’s get started.

John Paul Getty's Rules of Success

The 8 rules of success the millionaires have in mind

By Vic Carara

The late J. Paul Getty's rules for accumulating wealth are simple and to the point. In fact, it is so simple that most people who read them either dismiss them as sweeping generalities or falsely believe they have known and used them most of their lives... but these people are probably not rich. So while these guidelines may lack romance or an obvious direction, be assured that they are the genuine article. Apply them as soon and as often as you can, and apply them with intelligence and creativity.

Rule No. 1: To acquire wealth today, you must be in your own business.

You may think that the corporate executive with a $100,000 salary is better off than small shop owner, but the executive will be hard-pressed to double his income and taxes will eat up most of any increase. The simplest peanut vendor has unlimited opportunity to expand his business and his income, and even salesmen, who in most cases are able to write their own paychecks, can control his sale increases himself.

Rule No. 2. You must have a working knowledge of the business when you start and continue to increase your knowledge of it as you go along.

If you don't know what you're doing when you start, your mistakes will be costly and often unnecessary, and you won't be able to keep up with the technological explosions in any field. Start smart and stay that way.

Rule No. 3. You must save money in your personal life and in your business venture as well.

Discipline is the key to saving money. You must develop the will power to deny yourself immediate gratification or the temptation to gamble on the quick buck. Resources will be needed for expansion and should be guarded carefully.

Rule No. 4. You must take risks, both with your own money or with borrowed money.

Risk-taking is essential to business growth. Nelson Bunker Hunt is admired for his guts in trying to corner the silver market, not scorned for losing money on this deal. Some of the richest men have staked their entire fortunes and lost, several times over, before the risk-taking paid off. Back those risks with good judgment, experience, commitment, and the right support. Seek advice on risks from the wealthy who still take risks, not friends who dare nothing more than a football bet.

Rule No. 5. You must not only learn to live with tension, you must seek it out.

Thrive on stress! If it means getting physically fit, having a psychiatric overall or losing 50 pounds before you can handle it, do it. Once you can learn to thrive on stress, you will not only enjoy it, you will seek it out willingly and enthusiastically and wonder how you could live any other way. Men of means look at making money as a game which they love to play. Consider it serious business and you will suffer far more stress than you need or want. Keep your perspective or your stress level will rocket beyond your control.

Rule No. 6. Build wealth as a by-product of your business success.

If wealth is your only object in business, you will probably fail. Wealth is only a benefit of the game. If you win, the money will be there. If you lose, and you will from time to time if you play long and hard enough, it must have been fun or it was not worth it.

Rule No. 7. Patience.

This is the greatest business asset. Wait for the right time to make your moves. Let your business grow naturally, not by pressing your luck.

Rules No. 8. Diversify at the top.

Once you've made it, you'll understand that any business is limited in the challenges it offers. You'll want and need other games to play, so you'll look for other ventures to hold your interest.

Now go for it!

Law of Attraction – Be Like A Great Actor To Be Successful

"Unlock the Secret of Law of Attraction By Following Three 'Obvious' Steps"

by Aldian Prakoso

What if I see something that causes me heartache or if I dont want to think about
some bizarre experience?

If it is something you don't want, don't think about it, it's just that simple. For what you resist persist. The Law of Attraction cannot tell if you do not want the experience, especially since you keep thinking about it and wondering and predicting what you will do about it. Sensing that you want to keep creating more doubt, fear, anxiety, etc. because your energy is so focused on those types of experiences, the law says here's more. The more you concentrate on the unwanted object or experiences, the more energy you give it to grow. If it is something you truly desire, think about it to the point you can smell it, feel it and taste it and then "act as if you already have it in your life.

The next time you get into your old car, "act as if it's that new luxurious one you desire. Every time you get behind the wheel only believe, smell, and think of it as that new one. Start play-acting and pretend. Imagine you have the job, car, etc. and actually sense/visualize how you feel; insert yourself into the vision. Why? Because the universe does not distinguish between what is make believe and what is real. When you are pretending to the point that you actually believe you are in possession of the object of desire, then the universe matches it if you have mentally aligned with it and have physically made room for it.

How is this accomplished? Well, the universe doesn't have a mechanism to detect when you are pretending, so your consistent desirous thoughts about what you would love to experience is responded to as the real deal.

Go to the car dealership and sit in that luxurious new car. Go to the jeweler and try on that diamond ring, and sit in on a corporate meeting and get that feeling of entitlement in your soul. Start pretending, act as if now. Use this exercise daily. Start small then build to a bigger desire, you will need to feel confident and comfortable when you are acting as if. Remember, the subconscious mind doesn't distinguish between the real world and a virtual one. Acting as if will cost you nothing and there is not a great deal of energy expended. You simply incorporate the process into your normal daily routine.

Why pretend?

Pretending is like having access to a virtual reality game without being hooked up to any electronic equipment. Believing it's a game; the suspicious, cautious conscious mind will not reject, analyze or judge any of these thoughts against your current belief system because it views this exercise as play.

Just be like Angelina Jolie, Al Pacino, Tom Cruise or other great actors. They act it out and pretend that they're someone else according to their movie characters. You just need to act it our in your daily life.

Do not be deterred if others think you are acting weird, for it is through understanding and practicing the principles of the law that you will receive everything you believe and desire. Yes, it is the Law of Attraction and one of itsreal secrets is "if you believe it, you can achieve it." Only then can you have, be or do anything in your life if you desire it. Believing and having faith is the foundation for any desire to manifest.

12 Commandments To Attracting Greater Wealth!

By David Bach

One of the defining characteristics of a Smart Woman is that she is paid what she is worth. So why is it then that so many Smart Women (and even Smart Men) regularly accept earning less then they should? Did you earn what you deserve in 1999? Were you fully recognized for the value you bring to the work place? Well, if the answer to the above is “no”, that’s okay because a new millennium awaits us. Having taught thousands of women the following 12 Commandments To Attracting Greater Wealth I know that if you take action and utilize these simple yet powerful concepts you can attract greater wealth in you life in 2000 and beyond! As we begin this incredibly exciting year my hope for you is that in 2000 you are a Smart Women that both lives and finishes rich!


People constantly complain about how much money they make-or, rather, how much they don't make. I call them the gripers. They say things like "My boss doesn't appreciate me," or "I haven't gotten a raise in over a year," or "All my hard work and effort goes unnoticed," or "If only I worked for XYZ Company, I'd make twice what I'm a making now," or-and this is the classic line-"I'm in a dead-end career going nowhere." For the next 30 days I want you to say to yourself whenever you hear one of these people going on about how lousy his or her situation is: "If their work is so unappreciated, they should get off their collective butts and change their destiny."


The single greatest way to increase your income is to add value. I learned this important lesson from motivational speaker Zig Zigler. Zig says that in order for you to get out of life what you want, you have to help other people get out of life what they want. Even if you never did anything else of note, this one action would boost your standing with your boss or client. (By the way, this works with significant others and children too.)


We are all blessed with special talents that make us unique. Some people discover their talent at a young age and from then on focus their lives on honing it until they are rewarded by society.
The question you need to ask yourself (or ask others who know you) is what makes you uniquely valuable. What is it that you have to offer? Chances are there is something that you love doing. Most likely it's something you're good at. The point is, if you focus on this thing you love doing, you can become uniquely valuable enough at it that you can be paid significantly to do it.


Time is our most precious asset. Yet most people waste it doing stuff that someone else can do. Figure out what you make an hour and then never do something that you can pay someone else less to do. A Smart Woman focuses on what she does that makes her uniquely valuable. Everything else, she delegates.


Whether it’s at home or at work most people are slowed down by the messes that clutter their space. Consider cleaning your office first! According to time-management expert Jeffrey Mayer, author of Time Management for Dummies, most people spend about an hour a day looking for papers that are lost on the top of their desks-60 percent of which aren't needed anyway! Now, think about this for a second. If the average person is really spending an hour a day looking for stuff, that's about 22 hours a month, or 264 hours a year, down the drain. That's a whole month of working time.

The messes in your life don't stop at the office. You should clean up your home as well.


One of the greatest things you can do is to get really clear on your direction. To assist my clients and help them do this I always ask them the following question…If we were getting together three years from today, what would you want to see happen in your life to feel you had made great financial progress?

Some people call this goal setting. I call it life planning. Why write it down? Well as motivational expert Anthony Robbins taught me, if your life is worth living its worth recording! What could be more worth recording then the direction you want your life as a woman to head in the 21 Century.


For some reason, once most people leave school (and it does not matter whether we're talking about high school, college, or graduate school), they stop valuing the process of learning. I think this is a big mistake. The common denominator among really successful people is that they consistently seek new skills and better tools. Less than 5 percent of Americans read books like this one. They can propel you to a higher quality of life and happiness.


John Templeton, the billionaire investor and renowned philanthropist, once said that the key to life is not to be a go-getter but a "go-giver." This one statement changed my life. It is so easy to get caught up in whatever it is we are trying to accomplish, which often leads us to believe that we should be a go-getter. But a go-getter focuses on getting. A go-giver focuses on giving.

I'm not just talking about giving financially to charity but also about giving time to the people who need it. This can even start at home with your children or at the office with a new employee. Seek to be the person who is there with a helping hand.


Your financial future can be shaped the moment you make a financial decision. Remember the basic philosophy of Smart Women Finish Rich: When it comes to your future, you can be either proactive or reactive. Most people never make up their minds about the things that are important to them. So ask yourself: What’s one big decision have I been avoiding? I suggest that you stop avoiding it and act on it in 2000.


In sports, certain athletes are known as "go-to guys." These are the players who can be counted on to deliver in a pinch. The idea is that when the game is on the line, others give the ball to the guy who can make the play-the go-to guy.

These days more and more women are making names for themselves in both sports and business. That's what a Smart Woman wants to do. She wants to become known as the type of woman who rises above the competition, who can make it happen. She wants to be a "go-to gal."


In sales, they say the key to success is learning that you have to ask for the order. But salespeople aren't the only ones who need to learn that lesson. Everything in life that's important requires you to "ask for the order." From getting promoted to getting your children to pick up their clothes, you're not going to get what you really want if you don't ask for it. Yes, if you do all the other commandments I've listed, you're bound to be rewarded in some way or another-but if you are going to be able to charge your customer more or get that raise you want and deserve, ultimately you're going to have to ask for it.


MIHN stands for Make It Happen Now! In life I believe there are really four types of people. Those who watch things happen, those who wonder what happened, those who complain about what happened, and those who MAKE THINGS HAPPEN NOW! As you go about your life, ask yourself regularly which person are you being. Life is not a dress rehearsal. You get in life exactly what you go for. I say the heck with being a spectator and jump in.

2000 is going to be an incredibly exciting year. There will basically be two types of people in 1999; those that focus on what they didn’t get in the 20th Century and those that focus on who they will become and what they will enjoy in the 21 st Century. While I believe that achieving financial security and attracting greater wealth in your life is a goal worth striving for I want to end this article with something I myself often neglect. In our efforts to build a secure future and protect our financial destiny, we should never forget that the greatest asset we have is life. Unfortunately, life is of limited duration and is not guaranteed. There is no insurance we can buy that will give us back our life or make it possible for us to bring back those we love.

My point is that you shouldn't get so consumed with your financial journey that you don't spend enough time-sharing moments with the people you love. As you take control over your finances and your career, please remember to let those you really care about know how much they mean to you.

Live Your Life with No Regrets!
The choice is yours. Take the tools in this article and start now to begin your personal journey to the new woman you want to be in three years-more financially secure than you are now, more successful in your career, happier, even healthier.

Potentialize Your Opportunities

By Mark Victor Hansen

I remember watching the movie “Dead Poet’s Society” when it was first released in the theatres. Robin Williams’s character is a professor who wants his students to think for themselves, so he makes them stand on top of their desks to view things in a different way. That really stuck with me.

When you think about it, people hardly ever look at the world through their own eyes. They get their information filtered through the eyes of others, whether they’re the eyes of the media, politicians, friends or family. But what looks like one thing to someone may look totally different to someone else. To really see what’s going on in the world, to see what opportunities exist for us, we have to see the world through our own eyes in our own way.

We all need to recognize and potentialize opportunities when we see them. What do I mean by potentialize? When something has potential it has power, it expresses possibility, it is influential and effective.

As we go through each day we should be on the lookout for any situation that expresses possibility. Any situation. To attain the success you desire you have to recognize possibility everywhere and then stretch and flex your mind to create million-dollar ideas. And you’re not limited to just one. The more you practice seeing the possible in daily life, the better you will become. Then you take those small possibilities and potentialize them and create great monetary abundance.

We all have the ability to potentialize opportunities and create phenomenal wealth. And the amazing thing is that there are multiple possibilities for potentalizing in every situation! Just because someone comes up with a new way to do something doesn’t mean that there isn’t yet another way to do it. We have each been blessed with individual characteristics and abilities that no one else has. We each have our own special way of doing things. And that means we each have the ability to potentialize in our own unique way.

"Be grateful for your problems, for they stimulate an ‘I-can-solve-it’ new attitude."

I want you to begin to recognize potential in every situation. This may seem a bit challenging at first, but once you get into it, it becomes fun and easy.

For the next week I’d like for you to keep a journal. Every day write down 10 ideas you could potentialize into new, prosperous opportunities. Anything and everything you see or hear, write it down, including your ideas for potentializing the situation.

For example:

Let’s say you’re on your way to work and you stop for coffee. While you’re waiting for your latte you overhear a conversation between two businesspeople. One is saying how they need a new website for their business. This is the opportunity.

Your suggestion for potentializing the situation could be that you approach the two people and tell them about your colleague, who happens to design websites and who you know to be professional and trustworthy. You get the businessperson’s name and telephone number and approach your colleague with the information. You suggest that for every account you bring to them, you receive a flat finder’s fee. They agree, because it’s easy potential business for them, which means more money for them.

You see, even an overheard coffeehouse conversation can lead to an opportunity for profit.

A New Way to Easily Achieve Your Goals

I've learned at least two things about achieving goals: There is an easy way and a hard way.

The hard way is to work night and day, stay obsessed, rarely sleep, and never give up.

Since everyone talks about the hard way, I want to address the easy way. After all, why struggle if you don't have to?

I've used the easy way to create bestselling books, lose 70 pounds in 8 months, find my ideal mate, get healthy, increase my wealth, and much more.

Obviously, it works.

Here's the formula in brief:

1. Be grateful for what you already have.

2. Playfully declare what you would like to have with positive emotion, feeling as if it is already achieved.

3. Act on the nudges and opportunities that appear.

That's it. In my latest book, "The Attractor Factor," I explain a 5-step formula for getting what you want. It's useful for those times when you don't feel grateful, or can't decide on what you want, or don't understand the concept of letting go while taking inspired action. It's also helpful when you have issues about money, or deserving, or feel in any way blocked from your goals.

But the bottom-line for me is this: Declare what you would like with no attachment and plenty of good feeling, feel grateful for what you already have, and act on what appears. The result will be the manifestation of a happy life.

Let's explore this in depth.

1. Feel grateful now.

It doesn't mater where you live or what you have.

If you're reading this, you're most likely living like a king or queen compared to people in third world countries. You may even be living better than kings or queens from history, as they often lived in cold, violent, frightful times. You've got it made.

2. Choose what you want without attachment, feeling as if it is already achieved.

There's magic in saying "Id love to---(fill in the blank) but I won't die if I don't have it." Since the world is simply energy taking form, when you declare you want something, you begin to attract it. But when you say you need something, the need pushes it away. You want to select your desire, and feel the joy of already having it, without feeling any desperation. Need will push it away; Desire will attract it. If you feel as if you *already* have it, then you *will* have it.

3. Act on your opportunities and intuitions.

You may get offers, calls, or who knows what. Act on them. You never know what will lead you to your goal. Your ego cannot see the big picture. Intuition and opportunities will come to you from the larger view, and your job is to act on them. As you do, you will be taken to your goal, even when it appears you are being blocked away. Trust is key.

Is that really all there is to it?

Again, the fuller procedure in "The Attractor Factor" will take care of any snags in the process, but the basic process is simple. Let's walk through it:

1. Look around your room. What are you grateful for? Make a list. Get into the authentic feeling of true gratitude. In other words, be happy now. You don't need a reason to be happy. But if you want one, find something, anything, to be grateful for right now. When you're grateful, you're in a mental place that will attract more to be grateful for.

2. Look around the playground of your mind. What would you like to have, do, or be? What would be fun? Write it down. As you do, feel what it would be like to already have it now. Pretend you won the lotto. What would you want for yourself or others? What would be fun? The key is playful non-attachment while experiencing its completion *now.*

3. Now pay attention. As you go about your life, listen to your hunches and act on them, and pay attention to the opportunities and act on them. You never know what will take you in the direction of your goal. Your job is to take inspired action. You may have some work to do in this step, but the work will be from your heart, and will take you in the direction of getting your goal.

Why not go through the steps right now?

How to Build Your Own Empire in 5 Easy Steps

Long before the movie "Gladiator" hit the theatres, millions of people have been fascinated with ancient Rome . More than 15 centuries after its fall, the Roman Empire continues to profoundly influence world history. But few have ever explored how Rome marketed itself to greatness. It wasn't all blood and guts, gladiators and chariots, togas and swords. There was a strategy and a mission, too.

After all, how could an ancient class of poor farmers rule most of Europe ? Why would people leave their farms and their families to travel into unknown territories and fight barbaric wars? They were basically self-sufficent. They didn't even have a need for money until the third century. What's the deal here?

Roman Marketing was the key. In short, it was a powerhouse strategy practiced by the greatest emperors to instill hypnotic confidence in soldiers, allegiance from the public, and victory over almost all enemies.

And you can use it today to build your own empire.

Here's how Roman Marketing worked:

1. Create a mythology.

Rome did not have an inspiring past. Since it lacked the rich mythological sources of the ancient Greek, Rome filled in the holes by making up their own culture. They created their own legend. They told stories of Rome being founded by the survivors of Troy . Another story said Rome was founded by Romulus and Remus. These stories awakened a sense of the heroic in people. It gave them pride and confidence. It helped soldiers agree to fight for a country that was "the glory of Rome ." Battle wounds became symbols of pride. It's no accident that Rome 's principle god was Mars---the god of war. With that kind of deity on your side, why *not* go into battle?

2. Share your wealth.

In the early days of Rome , citizens had no choice but to serve in the army. And they might serve up to 20 years. Why would they agree? Because Roman leaders made it worth their while. Soldiers were given land and later, when it was useful to have, money. Whenever an enemy was defeated, the goods were divided among the soldiers as well as the leaders. A happy soldier was a loyal soldier. Generosity was a trait adored in Rome . In later years, when greedy Roman leaders were more reluctant to share their wealth with their troops, soldiers were more reluctant to fight---and Rome fell.

3. Rouse the public.

Ancient Rome knew the value of songs, parades, monuments, paintings and displays in creating loyalty among the public. Many Roman leaders wrote books which conveyed their views as well as gained them popularity. Roman writers used drama and poetry to spread the fame of Rome . These public shows were designed to entertain the public as well as convince them of the greatness of Rome . They worked so well that the public eagerly awaited celebrations. Some of these events lasted for days. One lasted 123 days.

4. Discipline yourself and your employees.

Roman soldiers worked hard, fought hard, and knew the value of discipline. Self-control was worshiped. But discipline didn't always mean punishment. It meant following a lifestyle proven to get results. That method included hard training as well as daily relaxation. Soldiers relaxed before battle. Evenings were a time of quiet. Even business dealings were not discussed over dinner. Leaders saw that followers were given time to renew themselves. A rested warrior was a strong warrior. Soldiers were trained to follow proven rules designed to do one thing: Win at all costs.

5. Lead by example.

Julius Caesar remains one of history's greatest commanders. He led by personal example. He would address his troops as "fellow-soldiers." He knew the names of every one of his soldiers. He often led battles from the front lines. He let his own confidence filter through the ranks. He also befriended the masses. He gave food to the poor. He provided banquets and receptions, complete with entertainment. He had his face stamped on Roman coins as a reminder of his leadership. He even brought the first hippopotamus from Africa , all for the purpose of winning loyalty so people would follow him wherever he wanted to take them.

How can you make Roman Marketing work for you today? Let's see...

1. Create stories about your business.

When you talk about people you have served who love your product or service, you create a sense of loyalty among your employees and a sense of desire in prospects. You create a culture. A mythology. Stories sell.

2. Share your profits.

Share your profits with your employees, with your community, or with other worthy causes. When you share your wealth, you open your mind psychologically to receive more, and you create good will among the people you touch. All of this is good publicity for your business and you. Sharing sells.

3. Awaken the public's support for your business.

Let the public know when you do good deeds, help people, share wealth, invent something or do something that helps your local area or the world in general. Support the world and it will support you. Publicity sells.

4. Discipline yourself and your employees.

Be at work on time, create and implement a plan that brings you new business, focus on a goal and work till you achieve it, and be sure to also relax and spend time with family and friends. Create a set of principles that work and follow them. Discipline sells.

5. Lead your people.

Let customers and employees see your own enthusiasm for what you do. They will model your behavior. Act with passion and be congruent and you'll win their hearts and minds. People want to be led. Leadership sells.

Compared to the atrocious warring times of ancient Rome , today we live in paradise. But here's the best news of all: When you apply the secrets of Roman Marketing to your own business, you'll find that you won't have to do something nearly every ancient Roman had to do: Fight to win.

Have you ever felt that you’ve been cheated?

Perhaps you purchased something and it didn’t live up to your expectations? Maybe you bought something and it broke within a few days or found out later that what you purchased wasn’t what you really wanted . . .

For most of us, this has happened at least once in our life. My point in bringing this up is to point out to you how you are now focusing in your mind about that event. You remember it don’t you. You remember specific details of what happened . . . and you are probably in a bad mood because of it, aren’t you?

Well, I want to point out to you . . . right now . . . that you can STOP those thoughts NOW, by concentrating on something else. Go ahead and think about what you would buy right now when you have a million dollars in cold, hard cash. That’s right, you might be thinking of a new CAR, BOAT, MANSION, TOY, HELPING OTHERS, being financially free and perhaps you are even thinking of a VACATION or trip to HAWAII or other trips you would take. One person once told me that he was thinking about the words he would say to his boss when he quit his job.

Now, as you are thinking about having your own MILLIONS DOLLARS, what would you do? How would you fee when you have a MILLIONS DOLLARS now?

Now STOP thinking about that and LISTEN to LEARN how you can not just “think” about it, but actually create it in your life INSTANTLY!

You don’t think it’s possible? Think again!

If you’ve been going through the exercises I’ve just guided you through, you might not have noticed that when I asked you about being cheated, you got a little upset. When you remembered that experience in your mind, you literally create the same physical sensations that you experienced in the past during that event. Your mind accessed the same thoughts, feelings and sounds that you had at that time in your life. You might have felt upset or slightly angry when you remembered it.

Then, if you thought about having your own million dollars . . . what happened? If you actually could imagine it in your mind, you really did think about what you would do with it, you probably even could see yourself living a “different life” than what you are living right now. Did you do it? Did you experience it? I did. If you didn’t, start from the beginning and do read it again - and this time, try to see it in your mind and honestly think about what you would do with your own million dollars.

The fact is, that our minds are more powerful that we know. As humans, we can literally take something from our past and relive it over and over and over again. You might know someone who does this.

Think about it. Have you ever heard someone say almost the same thing when something goes wrong? Maybe they say “I had a bad childhood,” or “I’m no good at X,” or some other negative statement that they have placed upon themselves.

Without going into scientific details, you can learn to master your mind and use it’s creative/ remembering ability to bring into your life whatever you want. Specifically, you can change your mind so you create, not only abundance in every form, but you can actually create a Million Dollar Income Stream into your life . . . now.

Then, feel good about your accomplishment.

Step seven: Circumstances and situations will start arising in your life that will allow this exact amount to manifest itself into your life. Simply be positive (remember you cannot doubt, for if you do - you will not obtain the money) and allow the universe to work its magic in your life.

Step eight: Repeat steps one through seven. By doing so, you will acquire Million Dollar Income Streams in your life. You now have the exact steps. Remember to use them.

Thank you for allowing me to share these secret steps with you. I wish you complete success as you create your own Million Dollar Income Streams . . . now.

“I’m Thinking...But I’m Not Growing Rich!”

by Bob Doyle

So you’ve read “Think and Grow Rich”, and you’ve got an intellectual understanding that you “become what you think about”. You have a list of affirmations about wealth, and you recite them every day.

But you still have no money. Wealth doesn’t seem to be anywhere around.
What’s the deal here? According to Napoleon Hill, you ought to be filthy stinkin’ rich, right?

Well, here’s the real deal: If you’re not “Wealth Conscious”, than all this thinking, and all this affirming isn’t going to bring you wealth. Thinking, and affirming are simply actions you’re taking. But they are just PART of the sequence of creating wealth. If you skip the FIRST step, you simply can’t get anywhere.

So what’s the first step?


To attract wealth, you first have to BE wealthy. THEN, you think wealthy thoughts, speak wealthy affirmations, and take wealthy action.

“But how can I BE wealthy if I’m NOT wealthy?” you ask. Logical question, but it’s based on the false assumption that you don’t have wealth. You HAVE wealth. You’re simply not aware of it. You have constructed a physical reality that prevents you from experiencing Wealth. This can all be explained with the science of Quantum Physics.

So let’s look at some very basic concepts of Quantum Physics that will explain what I’m talking about.

First, you probably are aware - at least on an intellectual level - that at a subatomic level, we, and everything else in the Universe, is Energy. When you break everything down, we’re all made of the same stuff, and we’re all connected. The Universe is just this huge ocean of Energy, vibrating at various frequencies which gives the illusion of individuation. That is, we experience the illusion of separateness from each other, physical objects, and wealth because our “senses” are decoding the Energy around us in such a way as to create our physical reality.

This all happens in our thoughts.

So, to simplify things quickly here for the sake of time (another illusion), “things” only exist because we observe them. It is in our observing that things come into existence.

Without our observing, things are simply “waves” - probabilities of existence. Physicists agree on this.

Our beliefs are a very powerful Energy system in our lives. Our beliefs allow or disallow certain experiences in our lives, including wealth.They make up who we are. We “BE” in the world according to our beliefs. If we are being is “someone who is trying to get wealthy by repeating affirmations”, then THAT is what our reality will be. We will just be TRYING to get wealthy.

We have to make the decision that we ARE wealthy, contrary to any external physical evidence. That evidence is an illusion based on the belief systems that have guided who we have been being up to that point.

A truly wealthy person isn’t wealthy because they have money. They have money, because they are wealthy! That’s the distinction that most people have backward!

Here’s an example to illustrate what I mean:

Tony Robbins became a millionaire at a very young age. Then, due to a series of poor judgments, he lost it. But within a year, he had it back. How did he do this? HE NEVER LOST HIS WEALTH. He only lost his money, which is just a symbol of wealth! Because he is “Wealth Conscious”, he literally “magnetically attracts” wealth into his life. He truly can’t help it! It’s who he is! And there are thousand out there like him, who attract wealth simply because it’s who they are. You can make the same decision and have the same results.


Conversely, a person who has grown up with “lack consciousness” can win millions in the lottery and lose it within a year. Their consciousness - their ENERGY - simply can’t maintain the attraction to Wealth because they aren’t “wealthy” in who they are being.

But again, Wealth is a decision. If you aren’t currently experiencing wealth, you first need to realize that abundance is fact it’s all there is. Poverty and lack are the illusions. You can shift your consciousness to Wealth - BE Wealth - by simply making the decision, THEN your thoughts, speech, and action will allow you to experience the wealth that is yours!

This is indeed a complex subject which challenges our core belief systems. But it is those very belief systems that keep a person in a state of lack.

Look at your financial situation today. Look at your core beliefs about Wealth and You, and see if your life isn’t a PERFECT reflection of your beliefs. Then, look where those beliefs may have originated. When you can awaken to yourself that your beliefs create your reality, rather than the other way around, you have the option to truly be free to experience a reality of prosperity that you deserve!

Success Programming

Article by Randy Gage

I was behind a one-armed man at the sub shop. He was complaining about the fact that the lady cut the tip off of the bread she was making his sandwich on.

The attendant explained that they cut the bread exactly, so regular subs are six inches long, and large are 12. He kept whining about the ¼ inch tip she had cut off. She explained that he would receive the same standard portion of meat and other fillings. He wasn't impressed.

In fact when the sandwich came out, he insisted that he wouldn't pay for it unless they found the tip she had cut off, toasted it, and put it in the bag. Standing behind him, with my blood sugar dropping, and my blood pressure rising, it was all I could do to refrain from smacking him upside the head. Of course he left without leaving a tip. I watched him get behind the wheel of a taxi parked in front and begin his dining experience.

So what kind of success programming do you think he had?

I bet he's proud of himself for cadging that extra bite of toast. In fact, I'm sure he sat in that taxi, congratulating himself for his assertiveness and savvy consumerism.

What do you think about his priorities, and where he expends his energy?

Is he focused on abundance or lack?

It's a similar kind of situation with you. I think the programming you've had is what determines your approach to just about everything in life. But instead of being programmed for success-most people are programmed to avoid failure.

Now perhaps you think I make too much of our cab driver's thriftiness. I think not. Your programming controls how you react to hundreds of situations, each and every day. And the way you react reveals what your programming really is.

Another example . . .

How do you think about money?

When you think about money, is it about how much of it you lack, or how much you can manifest? And why you want to manifest it.

Most poor people spend all their time thinking about money. Or more specifically, their lack of it. When I was younger and broke, that is what I did. I was fixated on money all the time. I thought about all the things I didn't have and couldn't get. And I was very jealous of the people who had them.

Know where that led to?

Jealousy soon turned to hate. Soon I hated all rich people because they had what I wanted.

Nice homes. Exotic cars. Expensive clothes. They could go to a restaurant and order what they really wanted. And not worry about who would pick up the check.

That's when the real problems started . . .

Because I hated rich people. But I was working hard every day trying to become one. So that set the stage for a whole bunch of internal conflict that I had no idea was going on.

So I would surge forward to success-only to sabotage myself every time I got close. I snatched defeat from the jaws of victory more times than I can count.

I thought I was programmed for success, but that wasn't true. I was programmed for poverty, but acting for success.

The symptoms are always there, if you know what to look for . . .

Ever see someone who experiences more anguish at losing $10, than the joy he gets from earning $100?

Someone orders his dinner at a restaurant and the waitress asks, "Would you like a salad with that?"

The correct answer is "yes" or "no" but never, "Is it included in the price?

Ever see someone who drives around a parking lot for five minutes-to save a one-minute walk to the store?

All of these scenarios have the same plot line: They are fear-based, not abundance-based. Decisions are made not on what the possible benefits are - but in order to avoid a possible negative outcome.

Now the question for a lot of people is, "How do I really know what kind of programming I have?"

They want to know if they really have success programming, or just success surface actions. The answer is in the questions above.

If you make decisions-particularly money and career ones-based on the moving away from fear model- you've got poverty programming.

If you make decisions on a positive, move toward good model, then you have true success programming.

So what do you do if you test poverty programming?

Well you're already doing it. Of particular importance is regulating the influence you're getting from the TV shows and movies you watch, books you read, etc.

And the other area is the people who are closest to you. Your "Sacred Circle" of the five people you are the closest to. It's crucial to your success that you have some positive people in the five to support you.

One of the biggest factors in your prosperity is the people that you associate with. Of particular note is your Sacred Circle. These are the five people that you are the closest to.

I believe that the people you allow to make up this group are so instrumental to your prosperity consciousness, that they truly become sacred to your prosperity path. They color your goals, expectations, and what you believe is capable and possible for you.

Be honest with yourself, would you describe what you now have as a Sacred Circle, or a "Rancid Ring?" Who are the five people in the group closest to you now?

Can you think of two or three new people that you currently know, that you can actively work at developing a deeper relationship, and bring into your circle?
