“It’s time to decide. You can be a victim or you can be rich, but you can’t be both. Listen up! Every time, and I mean every time, you blame, justify, or complain, you are slitting your financial throat . . . It’s time to take back your power and acknowledge that you create everything that is in your life and everything that is not in it. Realize that you create your wealth, your non-wealth, and every level in between.” (T. Harv Eker) There has never been greater opportunity to achieve financial Success than there is right now! In times of turmoil, chaos and massive shifts of wealth, more – not less – opportunity is revealed. We create our own personal circumstances, and regardless of whether we label “times” as “good” or “bad,” guess what – either way, we are RIGHT. As Napoleon stated long ago, “Circumstances? To hell with circumstances. I make my own circumstances.”
And the Word became flesh and lived among us, and we have seen his glory, the glory as of a father’s only son, full of grace and truth.
It is your mind; you have the ability to control what you think. You MUST accept this principle as true if you are ever to acheive real, honest and everlasting Success in your life. The dominating thoughts which one permits to remain in the conscious mind – whether these thoughts be negative or positive is immaterial – will reach and influence the subconscious mind, which has no ability to reject any thought impression; it only accepts AS TRUE what your conscious mind passes to it.
SUCCESS KEY: Begin to adopt a new Self Image: one of personal prosperity and abundance. Add as much detail as possible to the Image and make it as clear as possible in your Mind’s eye. Hold the Image at all times, regardless of what is going on around you. Do not let your present results dictate the Image that you hold in your mind, and regardless of how tough things may get, you must continue to hold an Image of personal properity, abundance and Success. Persistence is key with Image Making. Continue to hold the Image of personal prosperity and understand that what is happening to you must happen to you in order to prepare you to receive the good that you desire.
“What we ponder and what we think about sets the course of our life. Any day we wish; we can discipline ourselves to change it all . . . The choices are ours to make . . . We created our circumstances by our past choices. We have both the ability and the responsibility to make better choices beginning today.” Jim Rohn, Master Success Teacher and Legend
Getting what you want is success, and success is an effect, coming from the application of a cause. The cause of success is some power within you; you have the power to develop any power to a limitless extent, for there is no end to mental growth. All you have to learn is what is the cause of success, and how it must be applied.
One of the really great minds and souls of modern times – and indeed of any time – was Thomas Troward, late Divisional Judge of the Punjab, India. Of his writings, the late William James of Harvard said, “Far and away the ablest statement of that psychology that I have ever met, beautiful in its sustained clearness of thought and style, a really classic statement.” The Boston Transcript editorially stated, “The author reveals himself as easily the profoundest thinker we have ever met on this subject.” Genevieve Behrend, Attaining Your Desires (1929)
“Faith in God, Prayer and Worship, Approach to the Father through Christ — all this is in a certain sense familiar to you; and all I can hope to do is perhaps to throw a little more light on these subjects, so that they become to you, not merely traditional words, but present living facts . . . . if you feel that you want some other sort of learning, do not mind saying so; only you will never find any substitute for Christ.” – Judge Thomas Troward in a letter to Genevieve Behrend dated November 8, 1912
Success Key Success Manual: Attaining Your Desires by Genevieve Behrend. One of the really great minds and souls of modern times – and indeed of any time – was Judge Thomas Troward. Genevieve Behrend, the author of Attaining Your Desires, was Troward’s only personal student. A stellar pupil of a great sage, indeed. In this book, Behrend reveals the teachings of Troward, as she learned them, as they apply to achieving success in any endeavor. In this book, Troward plays the part of the Sage, while the Pupil is played “Humanity at Large.” In Attaining Your Desires, Behrend has written a dialogue between Sage and Pupil, and through that dialogue, as though in a personal classroom, Troward’s teachings are brought forth: “Thought is the only action of the mind. By your habitual thoughts you create corresponding external physical conditions, because you thereby create the nucleus which attracts to itself its own correspondence, in due order, until the finished work is manifested on the material plane . . . . ‘I AM’ is the word of power. If you think your thought is powerful, your thought is powerful.”
The scientific use of thought to achieve Success consists in forming a clear and distinct mental image of what you want; in holding fast to the purpose to get what you want; and in realizing with grateful faith that you do get what you want. But you must not only think; your personal action must supplement your thought. By thought, the thing you want is brought to you; by action you receive it. If you are ever to begin to make ready for the reception of what you want, you must begin NOW.
The whole process of mental adjustment and atonement can be summed up in one word, gratitude. Many people who order their lives rightly in all other ways are kept in poverty by their lack of gratitude. Having received one gift from God, they cut the wires which connect them with Him by failing to make acknowledgment. The more gratefully we fix our minds on the Supreme when good things come to us, the more good things we will receive, and the more rapidly they will come; and the reason simply is that the mental attitude of gratitude draws the mind into closer touch with the source from which the blessings come.
Did you know that living in a state of Gratitude can be one of the most powerful Keys to Success? There is a Law of Gratitude, and it is absolutely necessary that you should observe the law, if you are to achieve the Success that you seek. Giving thanks and maintaining an honest and sincere Attitude of Gratitude is a surefire way to turbo-charge your Success Path and achieve the Success you Desire.
