I learned this at a young age. When you think about something, and hold that thought in your mind with conviction that it has already happened, it becomes real.
If I am truly disclosing an ancient secret, why do some people still suffer from bad luck, poverty, and ill health? How can you make your dreams come true? How do you give your life greater purpose?
Let me ask you a question: What do you want?
Take your time, for most people cannot answer this. Of course there will be countless fools who will tell you they want to win the lottery. But what if they did? Their bank account would be one million dollars higher. Would their life change? No, because their mission was complete. They received what they wanted.
Contrary to some things I have read, I do not believe wants and desires should be kept secret. In fact, they should glow for others to admire one’s conviction. It is important to have good intentions. Saying, “I want to be a doctor,” has no value without wanting to help others. Professing, “I want to write a book,” has no value without wanting others to benefit from one’s words.
Write your want on paper. Make sure it is concise. Does this want benefit you? Does it benefit others? Can you see your want in your mind? Are you wearing the clothes you want to wear? Talking to the people you want to talk to? Doing business with the people you want to do business with?
It does not matter if you do not know how you will reach your want. If you have a staircase with twelve steps, you will be able to get to the top of the stairs in twelve steps. Believing in your desire is the same as climbing the steps. The difference is, if you close your eyes and take the same twelve steps, you will still end up at the top of the stairs.
