The majority of people in the United States, and the world, want to have a better life. What that actually means is that people need more money in order to have a better life. Yes, you can say that money is not everything and it isn’t, but it is required to do a lot of things. You cannot be happy with $50 in your checking account while you wait for your paycheck in the next two weeks, with rent due in the next three days. Money can certainty make you happy and I speak from experience. I have been homeless sleeping in my car with only saltine crackers as food, and I have also lived on a luxury apartment on the 34th floor in Downtown San Diego, and I’ll tell you what, I was much more happy in the luxury apartment. For this and many other reasons this article will serve as a guide to let you know the secrets of wealth that are purposely kept out of traditional schools.
The Wealth Advice You Should Have Learned In School
First off the secret is that you can be wealthy. It’s a secret because only the successful and wealthy people of the world know it and understand it. Other people believe it’s not possible and so they discard it all together. What it comes down to is basically knowledge, awareness, and belief. You can see something and know that it can be true, but if you don’t actually believe that it is, then you will simply disregard it. The first tip that I want to give you is to read the book “Think and Grow Rich” by Napoleon Hill. He was asked by Andrew Carnegie to take on a 20 year project which was to study the most successful people through those 20 years and write a book on the principles that made these people wealthy. He studied Henry Ford, Andrew himself, Thomas Edison, J.P. Morgan, The Rockerfellers and countless other people. He figured out the following principles of success which you must understand before we give you the wealth advice that’s true of today’s economic atmosphere.
- Specialized Knowledge
- Organized Planning
- Power of the Mastermind
- Mystery of Sex Transmutation
- The Brain
- The Subconscious Mind
- The Sixth Sense
You must DESIRE to be wealthy if you are ever to be. You must have FAITH that no matter what, you will be wealthy. You must tell yourself all the time that you are already wealthy through AUTO-SUGGESTION. You must use your IMAGINATION to imagine, feel, and see how being wealthy would change your life. The more you use your imagination, the more vivid the vision becomes and the more you have faith that it will happen. You must seek and use SPECIALIZED KNOWLEDGE to understand your chosen field to make money. This means that if you choose to be wealthy through real estate, you must acquire the knowledge that’s specific to that field, or else you will fail. Knowledge is not power, but the use of knowledge is, so if you don’t have the specialized knowledge required to succeed in a given occupation, you will not be successful.
Once you acquire this knowledge it will be easier for you to create an ORGANIZED PLAN. This plan will become your road map to achieve the wealth you desire. Creating a plan means nothing unless you make the DECISION to put the plan into action. It is inevitable that you will have setbacks and failures along the way, but unless you have the PERSISTENCE to get back up and continue along your journey. you will fail. In order to get back up and not be stopped by failure, you must surround yourself with and create a MASTERMIND. This mastermind is a group of two or more people which are aligned to help you achieve your goals. They can be mentors, employees, or partners, but you must create this alliance and keep it in harmony to achieve success faster. As Hill states, a battery has power but a group of batteries has more power and so a group of people have more “thought-power” than any one single individual.
Every person that became wealthy and successful mentioned to Napoleon Hill the fact that sex and the energy it enhances had a major part in their success. SEX TRANSMUTATION then becomes the most powerful creative energy one can use, because the very act of sex is one that leads to the creation of a new life. Those who understand how to use the power of sex become geniuses. One must also understand that the brain is both a receiver and a transmitter of information and so a thought can influence the minds of others and you may attune your own brain to pick up on the signals that are everywhere around us. This is how an idea comes into your mind, you do not have the idea, it is given to you, or you pick up on it from the vastness of the ether. Finally, these wealthy people understood that our actions are mostly the SUBCONSCIOUS MIND programming playing itself out. You can reverse this through auto-hypnosis and by repetition. Once you are able to understand and use the first 12 principles you will be tuned in and will have achieved a SIXTH SENSE.
We discussed the topic of wealth and the advice that you won’t find in any school in the country but can be found in a little book called “Think and Grow Rich”. So the wealth advice that is pertinent to today is that your house is not an asset, saving won’t make you rich, and going to college to get a job is no longer a viable plan to achieve wealth. Read Napoleon Hill’s book and have faith that your thoughts can make you rich, if you know and use the principles.
