“Even though we’ve been given the mental faculty to create our own environment, we don’t do it. So here we’ve got human beings, with marvelous minds, and they’re struggling, thinking they are stuck with the conditions or circumstances they’re surrounded by. I’ d like to do it but I can’t because… Whatever follow ‘because’ is the circumstance, and they become subservient to the circumstance.”
“We let the outside world control our mind. We have been gifted with the higher mental faculties of intuition, perception, will, memory, reason, and imagination. When we begin developing and effectively using these faculties, we can control our outside world and stop letting it control us. Einstein was so right when he said, ‘The intuitive mind is a sacred gift and the rational mind is a faithful servant. We have created a society that honors the servant and has forgotten the gift’.”
“There is only one problem in the world, and that is ignorance. The only problem in your company is ignorance. The only thing holding people back is ignorance. People just don’t know. And they don’t know they don’t know, in most cases.”
“When money comes in quantities known as ‘big money’, it flows to the one who accumulates it, as easily as water flows downhill. There exists a great stream of power, which may be compares with a river, except that one side flows in one direction, carrying all who get into that side of the stream onward and upward to wealth – and the other side flows in the opposite direction, carrying all who are unfortunate enough to get into it (and not able to extricate themselves from it) downward to misery and poverty.
“Every person who has accumulated a great fortune has recognized the existence of this stream of life. It consists of ones’s thinking process. The positive emotions of thought form the side of stream that carries one to fortune. The negative emotions form the side that carries one down to poverty. This carries a thought of stupendous importance to the person who is following this with the object of accumulating a fortune.”
“You don’t attract what you want. Wants are intellectual in nature. Wants are in your conscious mind. You attract what you are in harmony with, what you are. And you are the sum total of your thoughts that become fixed in your subconscious mind. You’ve got to get the want and plant what you want in your heart of hearts. You’ve got to plant it deep in the universal subconscious mind. That will then dictate the vibration you are in, and you can only attract energy to you that’s in harmonious vibration with you.”
“While it may seem that there are many roadblocks on your journey to wealth, the only real obstacle is what you believe, think, and feel about money. Most of us were raised with the cliche ‘Seeing is believing’, which is a skeptical and negative view of life. Wealthy people understand that this cliche is exactly backward – you must believe in what you can achieve before you will see it happen in your life. Wealthy people know that ‘Believing is seeing’. The only thing that separates a millionaire from you right now is a wealthy mindset, and the foundation of that mindset is belief.”
