The Second Step toward Riches

Over the years many millions of people searching for the answer to creating great wealth have read Think and Grow Rich looking for that ‘magic bullet’ for immediate success. Sadly, perhaps very few of those readers became millionaires or great leaders in their communities.

In most cases possibly the main reason for that lack of success was they lacked faith in the power of the systems and methods between the covers of what they were reading.

 As Mr. Hill explains “As an illustration, consider the purpose for which you are, presumably, reading this book. The object is, naturally, to acquire the ability to transmute the intangible thought impulse of DESIRE into its physical counterpart, money. By following the instructions laid down in the chapters on auto-suggestion, and the subconscious mind, as summarized in the chapter on auto-suggestion, you may CONVINCE the subconscious mind that you believe you will receive that for which you ask, and it will act upon that belief, which your subconscious mind passes back to you in the form of “FAITH,” followed by definite plans for procuring that which you desire”.

The method by which one develops FAITH, where it does not already exist, is extremely difficult to describe. Faith is a state of mind which you may develop at will, after you have mastered the thirteen principles, because it is a state of mind which develops voluntarily, through application and use of these principles.

Repetition of affirmation of orders to your subconscious mind is the only known method of voluntary development of the emotion of faith or, what members of Mentoring for Free know as daily self-talk which, involves not just repeating a series of words but actually visualising living and enjoying the desired for success as if we already owned that success.

I also believe the process of developing faith is helped greatly by associating and working with those who think the way I do and who, in many cases desire similar things to me. That constant re-affirmation and meeting of minds is surely is the real power of a great Mastermind Group.

With thanks to Michael and Linda for staying ‘all in’, to every coach and member for their awesome energy and commitment and to every reader for the energy they add.
