How much do I want to read more? 6/10
This is a simple idea, in the tradition of the "law of attraction", and the auto-suggestion popularized by Emile Coué.
I think the core idea is good, but the way it is described here is simplistic. And its efficiency lies in subtle details you won't find here.
People wish to have this or that, and then return to their daily routine.
The secret suggested here is to think more about what you want. Both in details and in repetitions during the day.
The goal is to train your "subjective mind" to be convinced, so that in turn, it convinces your "objective mind", where lies your true power.
Some quotations from the book:
- To get what you want is no more mysterious or uncertain than the radio waves all around you. Tune in correctly and you get a perfect result.
- Trying to figure out the how is as unnecessary as trying to figure out why a grain of corn placed in fertile soil shoots up a green stalk, blossoms and produces an ear of corn containing hundreds of grains, each capable of doing what the one grain did.
- talk to your inner self about your desires until the doubts that interfere with your progress are gone.
The famous little red book that makes your dreams come true
If you KNOW what you WANT you can HAVE IT.
Knowing that the greatest good comes from helping others without expecting praise, the author of this work has requested that his name be omitted.

"If wishes were horses, beggars would ride."
is the attitude taken by the average man.
They are not aware of a power so near that it is overlooked; so simple in operation that it is difficult to conceive; and so sure in results that it is not made use of consciously
"Gee, I wish that werw mine"
the same thought regarding a ring in the jeweler's window.
"Yes, dear, it would be nice to have a home like that, but it is out of the question. We will have to continue to rent."
the salesman, protests that he does all the work, gets the short end of the money and will some day quit his job and find a real one.
I'm late for Bridge now. She'll have to wait until tomorrow.
So goes the endless stream of expressions like these from millions of people in all classes who give no thought to what they really want.
If you would like a decided change from your present condition, you can have it; but first of all you must know what you want and this is no easy task.
When you can train your objective mind (the mind you use every day) to decide definitely upon the things or conditions you desire, you will have taken your first big step in accomplishing or securing what you know you want.
To get what you want is no more mysterious or uncertain than the radio waves all around you. Tune in correctly and you get a perfect result, but to do this, it is, of course, necessary to know something of your equipment and have a plan of operation.
The power capable of giving you that which you earnestly desire is your subjective mind.
Occasional wishing or half-hearted wanting does not form a perfect connection or communication with your omnipotent power. You must be in earnest, sincerely and truthfully desiring.
Your objective mind and will are so vacillating that you usually only WISH for things and the wonderful, capable power within you does not function.
WRITE down on paper in order of their importance the things and conditions you want.
Do not be afraid of wanting too much.
Change the list daily, adding to or taking from it, until you have it about right.
Three Positive Rules Of Accomplishment:
- Read the list of what you want three times each day: morning, noon and night.
- Think of what you want as often as possible.
- Do not talk to any one about your plan except to the Great Power within you which will unfold to your Objective Mind the method of accomplishment.
It is obvious that you cannot acquire faith at the start.
There is no need to analyze how this Power within you is going to accomplish your desires. Such a procedure is as unnecessary as trying to figure out why a grain of corn placed in fertile soil shoots up a green stalk, blossoms and produces an ear of corn containing hundreds of grains, each capable of doing what the one grain did.
It is natural to be skeptical and have doubts, distrust and questionings, but when these thoughts arise, get out your list. Read it over. talk to your inner self about your desires until the doubts that interfere with your progress are gone.
Your objective mind is so susceptible to suggestion, therefore choose friends and associate with people who now have some of the things you really want, but do not discuss your method of accomplishment with them.
Put down on list of wants such material things as money, home, automobile, or whatever it may be, but do not stop there. Be more definite. If you want an automobile, decide what kind, style, price, color, and all the other details. including when you want it. It you want a home, plan the structure, grounds and furnishings.
If you want money, write down the amount.
This may seem very foolish at first, but you can never realize your desires if you do not know positively and in detail what you want and when you want it.
when you are thanking your greatest and best friend, your Omnipotent Power, for the gifts received, do so with all your soul, and let it be reflected in your face.
