How To Think And Attract Wealth (MUST WATCH)



Sharing buttons:

I'd like to tell you about the strangest

secret in the world some years ago the

late Nobel prize-winning dr. Albert

Schweitzer was being interviewed in

London in the reporter asked him doctor

what's wrong with men today

the great doctor was silent a moment and

then he said men simply don't think it's

about this that I want to talk with you

we live today in a golden age this is an

era that man has looked forward to

dreamed of and worked towards with

thousands of years but since it's here

we pretty well take it for granted we in

America are particularly fortunate to

live in a richest land that ever existed

on the face of the earth a land of

abundant opportunity for everyone but

you know what happens let's take a

hundred men who start even at the age of

25 do you have any idea what will happen

to those men by the time they're 65

these 100 men who all start even at the

age of 25 believe they're going to be

successful if you ask any one of these

men if he wanted to be a success

intended he did and you'd notice that he

was eager toward life that there was a

certain sparkle to his eye any redness

to his carriage and life seemed like a

pretty interesting adventure to him but

by the time they're 65 one will be rich

four will be financially independent

five will still be working fifty four

will be broke I think a moment out of

the 100 only five make the grade now why

do so many fail what has happened to the

sparkle that was there when they were

twenty five was becoming the dreams the

hopes the plans and why is there such a

large disparity between what these men

intended to do and what they actually

accomplished when we say about five

percent achieve success we have to

define success and is the best

definition I've ever been able to find

it success is the progressive

realisation of a worthy ideal if a man

is working toward a predetermined goal

and knows where he's going that man is a

success if he's not doing that he's a

failure

success is the progressive realisation

of a worthy ideal Rallo may the

distinguished the characters wrote a

wonderful book called man's search for

himself and in this book he says the

opposite of courage in our society is

not cowardice it is conformity and there

you have the trouble today its

conformity people acting like everyone

else without knowing why without knowing

where they're going I think of it in

America right now there are over 18

million people 65 years of age and older

and most of them are broke they're

dependent on someone else for life's

necessities now we learn to read by the

time were 7 we learn to make a living by

the time were 25 usually but that time

we're not only making a living we're

supporting a family and yet by the time

we're 65 we haven't learned how to

become financially independent in the

richest land that has ever been known

why we can form and the trouble is

they're acting like the wrong percentage

group the magnify who don't succeed now

why do these people conform well they

really don't know these people believe

that their lives are shaped by

circumstances by things that happen to

them by exterior forces their outer

directed people a survey was made one

time that covered a lot of men working

then and these men were asked why do you

work why do you get up in the morning 19

out of 20 had no idea if you ask them

they'll say well everyone goes to work

in the morning and that's the reason

they do it because everyone else is

doing it now let's get back to our

definition of success who succeeds the

only person who succeeds is the person

who is progressively realizing a worthy

ideal is the person who says I'm going

to become this and then begins to work

toward that goal I'll tell you the

successful people are a success is the

school teacher who's teaching school

because that's what he or she wants to

do the success is the woman who's a wife

and mother because she wanted to become

a wife and mother and is doing a good

job of it the success is the man who

runs the corner gas station because that

was his dream that's what he wanted to

do the success is the successful

salesman who wants to become a top-notch

salesman and grow and build with his

organization a success is anyone who is

doing them

a predetermined job because that's what

he decided to do deliberately but only

one out of 20 that's that that's why

today there isn't really any competition

unless we make it for ourselves instead

of competing all we have to do is create

enough for 20 years I look for the key

which would determine what would happen

to a human being was the key I wanted to

know which would make the future a

promise that we could foretell to a

large extent was there a key that would

guarantee a person's becoming successful

if you only knew about it and you how to

use it well there is such a key and I

found it and ever wondered why so many

men worked so hard and honestly without

ever achieving anything in particular

and others don't seem to work hard and

yet seem to get everything they seem to

have the magic touch

you've heard them say that about someone

everything he touches turns to gold and

have you ever noticed that a man who

become successful tends to continue to

become successful and on the other hand

if you noticed how a man is a failure

tends to continue to fail well it's

because of goals some of us have goals

some don't people with goals succeed

because they know where they're going

it's that simple think of a ship leaving

a harbor and think of it with a complete

voyage mapped out and planned the

captain and crew know exactly where it's

going and how long it'll take it has a

definite goal and 9999 times out of 10

thousand it will get to where it started

out to get now let's take another ship

just like the first only that's not put

a crew on a door a captain at the helm

let's give it no aiming point no goal no

destination we just start the engines

and let it go I think you'll agree with

me that if it gets out of the harbor at

all it will be theirs think I'll wind up

on some deserted beach a derelict it

can't go anyplace because it has no

destination and no guidance and it's the

same with a human being take the

salesman for example there's no other

person in the world today with the

future of a good salesman

selling is the world's highest-paid

profession if we're good at it and if we

know where we're going every company

needs tuffnut sales

and they reward those men the sky's the

limit for them but how many can you find

someone once said the human race is

fixed enough to prevent the strong from

winning but to prevent the weak from

losing the American economy today can be

likened to a convoy in time of war the

entire economy is slowed down to protect

its weakest link

just as the convoy had to go at the

speed that would permit a slowest vessel

to remain in formation that's why it's

so easy to make a living today it takes

no particular brains or talent to make a

living and support a family today so we

have a platter also called security if

that's what a person is looking for but

we do have to decide how high above this

plateau we want to wane now let's get

back to the strangest secret in the

world a story that I wanted to tell you

today

why do men with goals succeed in life

and then without them fail well let me

tell you something which if you really

understand it will alter your life

immediately if you understand completely

what I'm going to tell you from this

moment on your life will never be the

same again you will suddenly find it

good luck there seems to be attractive

do the things you want just seem to fall

in line and from now on you won't have

the problems the worries that knowing a

lump of anxiety that perhaps you've

experienced before doubt fear well

there'll be things in the past is the

key to success and the key to failure we

become what we think about now let me

say that again we become what we think

about throughout all history the great

wise men and teachers philosophers and

prophets have disagreed with one another

on many different things it's only on

this one point that they are incomplete

and unanimous agreement listen to what

Marcus Aurelius the great Roman Emperor

said a man's life is what his thoughts

make of it Disraeli said this everything

comes if a man will only wait I have

brought myself by long meditation of a

conviction that a human being with a

settled purpose must accomplish it and

that nothing can resist a will that will

stay even existence for its fulfillment

Ralph Waldo Emerson said this a man is

what he thinks about all day long

William James said the greatest

discovery of my generation is

that human beings can alter their lives

by altering their attitudes of mind and

he also said we need only in cold blood

act as if the thing in question were

real and it will become infallibly real

by growing into such a connection with

our life that it will become real it

will become so knit with habit and

emotion that our interest in it will be

those which characterized belief the

also said if you only care enough for a

result you will almost certainly attain

it if you wish to be rich you will be

rich if you wish to be learned you will

be learning if you wish to be good you

will be good only you must then really

wish these things and wish them

exclusively and not wish at the same

time a hundred other incompatible things

just as strongly in the Bible you read

in mark 9:23

if thou canst believe all things are

possible to him that believeth by all

friend dr. norman vincent peale put it

this way this is one of the greatest

laws in the universe fervently do I wish

I discovered it as a very young man it

dawned upon me much later in life and I

found it to be one of the greatest if

not my greatest discovery outside of my

relationship to God the great law

briefly and simply stated is that if you

think in negative terms you will get

negative results if you think impossible

terms you will achieve positive results

that is the simple fact he went on to

say which is at the basis of an

astonishing law of prosperity and

success in three words believe and

succeed William Shakespeare put it this

way

our doubts are traitors and make us lose

the good we oft might win by fearing to

attempt George Bernard Shaw said people

are always blaming their circumstances

for what they are I don't believe in

circumstances the people who get on in

this world of the people who get up and

look for the circumstances they want and

if they can't find them make them well

that's pretty apparent isn't it and

every person who discovered this for a

while believed that he was the first one

to work it out we become what we think

about now it stands to reason if a

person was thinking about a concrete and

worthwhile goal is going to reach it

because that's what he's thinking about

and we be

come what we think about conversely the

man who has no goal who doesn't know

where he's going and whose thoughts must

therefore be thoughts of confusion and

anxiety and fear and worry becomes what

he thinks about his life becomes one of

frustration and fear and anxiety and

worry and if he thinks about nothing he

becomes nothing and how does it work why

do we become what we think about well

I'll tell you how it works as far as we

know how to do this I want to tell you

about a situation that parallels the

human mind suppose the farmer has some

land and it's good for the land now the

land gives the farmer a choice he may

plant in that land whatever he chooses

the land doesn't care it's up with a

farmer to make the decision now remember

we're comparing the human mind with the

land because the mind like the land

doesn't care what you plant in it it

will return what you plant but it

doesn't care what you plant now let's

say that the farmer has two seeds in his

hand one is a seed of corn

the other is nightshade a deadly poison

he digs two little holes in the earth

and he plants both seeds one corn the

other nightshade he comes up the holes

waters and takes care of the land and

what will happen invariably the land

will return what's planted as it's

written in the Bible as you sow so shall

you reap

I remember the land doesn't care it'll

return poisoning just as wonderful

abundance as it will corn so up come the

two plants one corn one poison now the

human mind is far more fertile far more

incredible and mysterious than the land

but it works the same way it doesn't

care what we plant success failure a

concrete worthwhile goal or confusion

misunderstanding fear anxiety and so on

but what we plant it must return to us

is he the human mind is the last great

unexplored continent on earth it

contains riches beyond our wildest

dreams it will return anything we want

to plant now you might say well if

that's true why don't people use their

minds more what I think they figured out

an answer to that one to our mind comes

a standard equipment at birth it's free

and things that are given to us for

nothing we place little value on things

that we pay money for we value

the paradox is that exactly the reverse

is true everything that really

worthwhile in life came to us free our

minds our souls our bodies our hopes our

dreams our ambitions our intelligence

our love of family and children and

friends and country all these priceless

possessions are free but the things that

cost us money are actually very cheap

and can be replaced with any time a good

man can be completely wiped out and make

another fortune he can do that several

times even if our home burns down we can

rebuild it but the things we got for

nothing we can never replace the human

mind isn't used because we take it for

granted familiarity breeds contempt it

can do any kind of job we assign to it

but generally speaking we use it for

little jobs instead of big important

ones universities have proved that most

of us are operating on about 10 percent

or less of our abilities so decide now

what is it you want plant your goal in

your mind it's the most important

decision you'll ever make in your entire

life

what is it you want you want to be an

outstanding salesman a better worker at

your particular job you want to go

places in your company in your community

you want to get rich all you've got to

do is plant that seed in your mind care

for it work steadily toward your goal

and it will become a reality it not only

will there's no way that it cannot you

see that's a law like the laws of Sir

Isaac Newton the laws of gravity if you

get on top of a building and jump off

you'll always go down you will never go

up and it's the same with all the other

laws of nature they always work they're

inflexible think about your goal in a

relaxed positive way picture yourself in

your mind's eye as having already

achieved this goal see yourself doing

the things you will be doing when you've

reached your goal ours has been called a

vena barber tall age the age of ulcers

and nervous breakdowns and tenderizers

at a time when medical research has

raised us to a new plateau of good

health and longevity far too many of us

worry ourselves into an early grave

trying to cope with things in our own

little personal ways without learning a

few great laws that will take care of

everything for us these things we bring

on our set

through our habitual way of thinking

every one of us is the sum total of his

own thoughts he is where he is because

that's exactly where he really wants to

be whether he'll admit that or not each

of us must live off the fruit of his

thoughts in the future because what you

think today and tomorrow next month the

next year will mold your life and

determine your future you're guided by

your mind I remember one time I was

driving through eastern Arizona and I

saw one of those giant earthmoving

machines roaring along the road at about

35 miles an hour with what looked like

30 tons of dirt in it a tremendous

incredible machine and there was a

little man perched way up on top with

the wheel in his hands guiding it and as

I drove along I was struck by the

similarity of that machine of the human

mind just suppose you're sitting at the

controls of such a vast source of energy

are you going to sit back and fold your

arms and let it run itself into a ditch

or are you going to keep both hands

firmly on the wheel and control and

direct this power to a specific

worthwhile purpose it's up to you you

are in the driver's seat it sees a

variable law that gives us success as a

two-edged sword we must control our

thinking the same rule that can lead

Amanda a life of success wealth

happiness and all the things he ever

dreamed up for himself with his family

that very same walk and lead him into

the gutter it saw them how he uses it

for good or for bad this is the

strangest secret in the world now why do

I say it's strange and why do I call it

the secret actually it is mistaken at

all it was first promulgated by some of

the earliest wise men and it appears

again and again throughout the Bible but

very few people have learned it

understand it that's why it's strange

and why for some equally strange reason

it virtually remains a secret I believe

that you could go out and walk down the

main screen of your town and ask one man

after another what the secret of success

is and you probably wouldn't run into

one man and a month who could touch this

information is enormous ly valuable to

us if we really understand it and apply

it it's valuable to us not only for our

own lives but the lives of those around

us our families employee is associates

and friends pride should be an exciting

adventure it should never be a bore

a man shall be fully be alive it should

be glad to get out of bed in the morning

he should be doing a job he likes to do

because he does it well one time I heard

Grove Patterson the great late

editor-in-chief of the Toledo Daily

blade make a speech and as he concluded

his speech he said something I've never

forgotten he said my years in the

newspaper business have convinced me of

several things among them that people

are basically good and that we came from

someplace and were going someplace so we

should make our time here an exciting

adventure the architect of the universe

didn't build a stairway leading nowhere

and the greatest teacher of all the

carpenter from the plains of Galilee he

gave us the secret time and time again

as he believed so shall it be done unto

you I've explained the strangest secret

in the world and how it works now on

this side I want to explain how you can

prove to yourself the enormous returns

possible in your own life by putting the

secret to a practical test I want you to

make a test it will last 30 days it

isn't going to be easy but if you'll

give it a good try it will completely

change your life for the better a back

in the 17th century Sir Isaac Newton

meeting this mathematician the natural

philosopher gave us the natural laws of

physics which apply as much to human

beings as they do the movement of bodies

in the universe and one of these laws is

that for every action there is an equal

and opposite reaction simply stated as

it applies to you and me it means we can

achieve nothing without paying the price

the results of your 30-day experiment

will be in direct proportion to the

effort you put forth to be a doctor you

must pay the price of long years of

difficult study to be successful in

selling and remember that each of us

succeeds to the extent of his ability to

sell selling our families and our ideas

selling education in schools selling our

children on the advantages of living the

good and honest life selling our

associates and employees on the

importance of being exceptional people

too of course the profession of selling

itself but to be successful in selling

our way to the good life we must be

willing to pay the price

and what is that price well it's many

things first it's understanding

emotionally as well as intellectually

that we will literally become what we

think about that we must control our

thoughts that were to control our lives

it's understanding fully that as she's

so so shall ye reap second it's cutting

away all fetters from the mind and

permitting it to soar as it was to

finally designed to do

if the realisation that your limitations

are self-imposed and that the

opportunities for you today are enormous

beyond belief its rising above

narrow-minded pettiness and Prejudice

and third it's using all your courage to

force yourself to think positively on

your own problem to set a definite and

clearly defined goal for yourself to let

your marvelous mind think about your

goal from all possible angles to let

your imagination speculate freely upon

many different possible solutions to

refuse to believe that there are any

circumstances sufficiently strong to

defeat you in the accomplishment of your

purpose select promptly and decisively

when your course is clear and they keep

constantly aware of the fact that you

are at this moment standing in the

middle of your own acres of diamonds as

Russell Conwell used to point out and

forth save at least 10% of every dollar

you burn it's also remembering that no

matter what your present job it has

enormous possibilities if you're willing

to pay the price now let's just go over

the important points in the price each

of us must pay to achieve the wonderful

life that can be ours it is of course

worth any price one you will become what

do you think about to remember the word

imagination and let your mind begin to

store three courage concentrate on your

goal every day for save 10% of what you

earn and 5 action ideas are worthless

unless we act on them now I'll try to

outline the 30-day test I want you to

make it keep in mind that you have

nothing to lose by making this test and

everything you could possibly want to

gain there are two things that may be

said of everyone each of us wants

something and each of us is afraid of

something I want you to write on a card

what it is you want more than anything

else it may be more money perhaps you'd

like to W in camera make a specific

amount of

money it may be a beautiful home it may

be success at your job it may be a

particular position in life it could be

a more harmonious family each of us

wants something now write down on your

card specifically what it is you want

make sure it's a single goal and clearly

defined you needn't show it to anyone

but carry it with you so that you can

look at it several times a day think

about it in a cheerful relaxed positive

way each morning when you get up and

immediately you have something that

works for something to get out of bed

for something to live for

look at it every chance you get during

the day and just before going to bed at

night and as you look at it remember

that you must become what you think

about and since you're thinking about

your goal you realize that soon it will

be yours

in fact it's yours really the moment you

write it down and begin to think about

it look at the abundance all around you

as you go about your daily business you

have as much right to this abundance as

any other living creature it's yours for

the asking now we come to the difficult

part difficult because it means the

formation of what is probably a brand

new habit then you have it's not easily

formed once formed however it will

follow you for the rest of your life

stop thinking about what it is you fear

each time a fearful or negative thought

comes into your consciousness replace it

with a mental picture of your positive

and worthwhile goal and there are some

times when you'll feel like giving up

it's easier for a human being to think

negatively and positively that's why

only 5% are successful you must begin

now how to place yourself in that group

about 30 days you must take control of

your mind it will think about only what

she's permitted to think about each day

for this 30 day test do more than you

have to do in addition to maintaining a

cheerful positive outlooks give of

yourself more than you've ever done

before do this knowing that your returns

in life must be in direct proportion to

what you give the moment you decide on a

goal to work toward you're immediately a

successful person you are then in that

rare and successful category as people

who know where they're going

out of every hundred people you belong

to the top five don't concern yourself

too much with how you're going to

achieve your goal leave that completely

to a Power greater than yourself all you

have to do is

where you going the answers will come to

you of their own accord and at the right

time remember these words from the

Sermon on the Mount and remember them

well keep them constantly before you

this month of your tests ask and it

shall be given you seek and ye shall

find not and it shall be opened unto you

for every one that asketh receiveth and

even seeketh findeth and they em that

knocketh it shall be opened it's as

marvelous and as simple as that

in fact it's so simple than a seemingly

complicated world it's difficult for an

adult to understand that all he needs is

a purpose and faith for 30 days do your

very best if you're a Salesman go out of

these you've never done before not in a

hectic fashion but with the calm

cheerful assurance that time well spent

will give you the abundance in return

you deserve and what if you're a

homemaker devote your 30-day test to

completely giving of yourself without

thinking about receiving anything in

return and you'll be amazed at the

difference it makes in your life no

matter what your job do it as you've

never done it before for 30 days and if

you've kept your goal before you every

day you will wonder and marvel at this

new life you found Dorothea bram the

outstanding editor and writer discovered

it for herself and tell us about it in a

fine book wake up and live her entire

philosophy is reduced to the words act

as though it were impossible to fail she

made her own test with sincerity and

faith and an entire life was changed to

one of overwhelming success now you make

your test for 34 days don't spend your

tests until you've made up your mind to

stick with it you see by being

persistent you're demonstrating faith

persistence is simply another word for

faith if you didn't have faith you've

never possessed if you should fail

during its first 30 days by that I mean

suddenly find yourself overwhelmed by

negative thoughts you've got to start

over again from that point and go 30

more days gradually your new habit will

form until you find yourself one of that

wonderful minority to whom virtually

nothing is impossible and don't forget

the card it's vitally important as you

begin this new way of living

on one side of the card write your goal

whatever it may be on the other side

write the words we've quoted from the

Sermon on the Mount ask and it shall be

given you seek and ye shall find

not and it shall be opened unto you

nothing great was ever accomplished

without inspiration see that during

these crucial first 30 days your own

inspiration is kept to the peaks and

above all don't worry worry brings fear

and fear is crippling the only thing

that can cause you to worry during your

test is trying to do it all yourself

know that all you have to do is hold

your goal before you everything else

will take care of itself

remember also to keep calm and cheerful

still that petty things annoy you and

get you off course now since making this

test is difficult some will say why

should I bother well look at the

alternative no one wants to be a failure

no one really wants to be a mediocre

individual no one wants their lives

constantly filled with worry and fear

and frustration therefore remember that

you must reap that which you sow if

you're so negative that's your life will

be filled with negative things if you

sow positive thoughts your life will be

cheerful successful and positive I'm

glad something you all have attempted

see to forget when you've heard on this

recording play it often keep reminding

yourself of what you must do to form

this new habit gather your whole family

around at regular intervals and listen

to what's been said here you know most

men will tell you that they want to make

money without understanding the law the

only people who make money work in a

mint the rest of us must earn money this

is what causes those who keep looking

for something for nothing or free ride

to fail in life the only way to earn

money is by providing people with

services or products which are needed

and useful we exchange our time and our

product or service for the other man's

money therefore the law is that our

financial return will be in direct

proportion to our service that success

is not the result of making money making

money is the result of success and

success is in direct proportion to our

service most people have this all

backwards they believe that you're

successful if you earn a lot of money

the truth is that you can only earn

money after you're successful it's like

the story of the man is

in front of the stove them said to it

give me heat and then I'll add the wood

how many men and women do you know er do

you suppose there are today to take the

same attitude toward life there are

millions we've got to put the fuel in

before we can expect heat likewise we've

got to be of service first before we can

expect money don't concern yourself with

the money be of service build work dream

create do this and you find there's no

limit to the prosperity and abundance

will come to you prosperity and I was

founded upon a law of mutual exchange

any person who contributes to prosperity

must prosper and turn himself sometimes

the returnbook that come from those you

serve but it must come to you from

someplace because that's the law for

every action there is an equal and

opposite reaction as you go daily

through your 30 day test period remember

that your success will always be

measured by the quality and quantity of

service you render and money is a

yardstick for measuring this service no

man can get rich himself unless he

enriches others and there are no

exceptions to a law even drive down any

Street in America and from your car

estimate the service that's being

rendered whether people living on that

street and you ever thought of this

yardstick before it's interesting some

like ministers and priests and other

devoted people measure their returns in

the realm of the spiritual but again

their returns are equal to this service

once this law is fully understood any

thinking person can tell his own fortune

if he wants more he must be of more

service to those who only receives his

return if he wants less he has only to

reduce the service this is the price you

must pay for what you want if you

believe you can enrich yourself by

diluting others you can end only by

diluting yourself it may take some time

but just as surely as you breathe you'll

get back what you put out don't ever

make the mistake of thinking you can

revert this it's impossible the prisons

and the streets for the lonely walk are

filled with people is tried to make new

laws just for themselves we may avoid

the laws of man

for a while but they're greater laws

that cannot be broken and outstanding

medical doctor recently pointed out six

steps that will help you realize success

one set yourself a definite goal to quit

running yourself down three stop

thinking of all the reasons why you

cannot be successful and instead think

of all the reasons why you can for trace

your attitudes back through your

childhood and try to discover when you

first got the idea you couldn't be

successful if that's the way you've been

thinking five change the image you have

of yourself by writing out a description

of the person you would like to be and

six act the part of the successful

person you have decided to become the

doctor who wrote those words as a noted

West Coast attachés dr. David Harrell

think do what the experts since the dawn

of recorded history have told you you

must do pay the price by becoming the

person you want to become it's not

nearly as difficult as where the

unsuccessfully make your 30 day test and

repeat that then they peel it again and

each time it will become more a part of

you until you wonder you could ever

lived any other way live this new way

and the floodgates of abundance will

open and pour over you more riches than

you may have dreamed existed money

yes lots of it but what's more important

you'll have peace you'll be in that

wonderful minority who lead calm careful

successful lives

start today you have nothing to lose but

you have a whole life to win the zoman

Gail and thank you
