Hard work is the secret to wealth, right?
We both know many people who work hard and barely get ahead. And we also know people who seem to have all the time in the world and have built a fortune.
There is much more to good than this and this was first discovered by one of the best authors who ever lived – Napoleon Hill. His book “Think and Grow Rich” is the Bible that uses LoA for manifesting wealth. Tens of thousands of people have used his principles to manifest fortunes for themselves and their loved ones.
If you want to learn how to get rich using LoA, then get this book. It’s free. It’s a quick read. It is also better than courses that cost thousands of dollars and much more practical.
But back to our topic, how do billionaires show wealth, money and prosperity?
Element #1 – Desire
Without desire, you have nothing. Desire is the magnetic force of the universe. It draws people and circumstances together. It puts the right opportunities in your path. It makes the impossible possible.
If you want something, you get it.
The more you desire it, the more likely you are to manifest it.
This is because when you feel a strong desire and attachment to a result, you end up clarifying what you want. You get very emotional about it. This is the discovery of the universe to help you create it.
And then, when you want something, you take massive action. You don’t just wait for it to come to you. You put in the hours, the work, day after day.
Element #2 – Faith
Faith works in a strange way.
If you have faith that something will happen, it probably will. This works both positively and negatively. I call it a self-fulfilling prophecy. If you are sure that something will happen, then you will act in certain ways that will make it true.
But the thing about faith is that you can’t have proof. You have to move forward, through the darkness, knowing that there is a door at the end. If you wait for the door to reveal itself, then you will be disappointed. You also have to believe that you will get what you want even when you have setbacks and problems and feel like you are losing.
If you have faith and move forward, then you will be rewarded with a number of signs that you are on the right path. If you wait for the signs to appear and then have faith in what you want to manifest, then nothing will happen.
Element #3 – Auto Suggest
You may know this under self-hypnosis or affirmations or brainwave entrainment. There are many ways to apply auto-suggestion. The idea is always the same – by repeating something over and over again and adding emotion to it; you end up believing it.
It is said that if you repeat a lie for 31 days, you accept it as the truth.
The problem is that you apply auto-suggestion all the time. You may not even realize it. You tell yourself things; you repeat them and believe them. If you say something like “I’m worthless” or “I’ll always fail”, what do you think will happen? You will act in ways that make this true. If you say “I am strong and attract wealth”, the opposite happens. Together with the universe, you create good health and wealth”.
This works because most of the time, you are only half awake. You don’t really think about what you are doing. Rather, you are following a pre-determined script that resides in your subconscious mind. This is the real you.
Through auto-suggestion and techniques like hypnosis or technologies like NLP, you can program your subconscious mind with new ideas and suggestions. This will change what you do and make success effortless.
Element #4 – The Use of Imagination
Visualization is a well-known technique, used in everything from business to sports. Practicing something in your mind can be just as effective as doing it in real life. For manifestation, you Visualize the life you desire before you manifest it.
Consider your imagination a blueprint for reality. You paint what you want there and then co-create it with the universe. Daydreaming is visualization but the intentional and deliberate one, where you focus on creating specific images works even better.
While as children our parents scolded us for using our imagination too much or for daydreaming, in truth, this is an amazing tool to achieve success, financial or otherwise.
Element #5 – The Sixth Sense
This idea is introduced by Napoleon Hill. All these ideas were introduced by him. These are the spiritual concepts that we find in the book Think and Be Rich.
Many people confuse it with instinct, the sixth sense that tells you what to do. It is much more than that. The sixth sense is your ability to connect with universal intelligence and gain access to all the knowledge of the universe. It’s when you let knowledge come to you instead of chasing it.
One way many scientists and inventors have applied the sixth sense is through the power of dreams. The way to do this is simple. Before you go to sleep, ask your subconscious mind to help you find the solution to a problem that has been bothering you for a long time. Focus on it. Make it clear in your mind what you are looking for.
Place a notebook and pen next to your bed.
The next morning, as soon as you wake up, write. You will find your solution in what you have just dreamed or known. It’s scary how effective it is. It doesn’t work every time but when it does, it’s like someone came overnight and added this nugget of wisdom to your mind.
This also works well when you clear your mind through meditation or those rare moments of clarity.
You may also have experienced this. Think about a time when you took a shower and while you were washing, you came up with an insight or a solution to a problem that was almost impossible to solve.
No wonder so many people come up with brilliant solutions in the shower. Water, heat, confined space, no distractions (or until they make phones waterproof) makes your mind susceptible to infinite intelligence. True genius and intelligence do not require you to work harder or read more. You need to empty your mind so you can access the wisdom of the ages.
Element #6 – Decision
Something magical happens when you decide.
It’s like saying to yourself “I’ve had enough and I’m not going to take it anymore”. You commit to change and change will come soon after.
To decide means “to give up any other option”. When you decide to become rich, you give up the option of being poor. This is a powerful signal that shows the universe that you really care about your success. It is also the key that opens the door to prosperity because once you decide you don’t want to be poor anymore and want to experience wealth, you are cutting out every option in which you can be poor.
However, keep in mind that most decisions are false decisions. When you decide, you can’t go back. It’s like handing your key back to your landlord and knowing you can never go back to your old house again. It is opening new options while closing old ones. So if you want to have a better life, keep in mind that you can’t turn back, otherwise it won’t be a real decision.
Element #7 – Persistence
Action is critical to manifestation. The universe will put in place the people and circumstances you need to achieve success but you still have to act on them. You have to act on those circumstances and meet those people. No one will do it for you.
You may not always get success right away. I’m sorry but you don’t climb a mountain just by taking a few steps. It may take longer for reasons that will become clear to you later. And the best advice I can give you here is to persist and not give up. Not giving up sends a clear signal to the universe that this goal is important to you and the more you try, the easier it becomes.
Consider it a test. Every time life is hard and you move forward, it tests you to see how much you really want your goal. Pass this test by never giving up.
