Notes from the book The Power of your Sub-Conscious Mind by Joseph Murphy PhD in relation to Wealth & Success.
Watch what you say. You have to account for every idle word. Never say, “I will fail; I will lose my job; I can’t pay the rent.” Your subconscious cannot take a joke. It brings all these things to pass.
Know that faith is like a seed planted in the ground; it grows after its kind. Plant the idea (seed) in your mind, water and fertilize it with expectancy, and it will.
Believe in the reality of your idea, plan, or invention, and as you do, it will manifest.
Wealth is simply a subconscious conviction on the part of the individual. You will not become a millionaire by saying, “I am a millionaire, I am a millionaire.” You will grow into a wealth consciousness by building into your mentality the idea of wealth and abundance.
Want/need wealth and success?
This is what you do:
Repeat for about five minutes to yourself three or four times a day, “Wealth—Success.”
These words have tremendous power. They represent the inner power of the subconscious mind. Anchor your mind on this substantial power within you; then conditions and circumstances corresponding to their nature and quality will be manifested in your life.
You are not saying, “I am wealthy,” you are dwelling on real powers within you.
There is no conflict in the mind when you say, “Wealth.”
Furthermore, the feeling of wealth will well up within you as you dwell on the idea of wealth. The feeling of wealth produces wealth; keep this in mind at all times. Your subconscious mind is like a bank, a sort of universal financial institution. It magnifies whatever you deposit or impress upon it whether it is the idea of wealth or of poverty. Choose wealth.
Yoursucceeds best when it is specific and when it does not produce a mental conflict or argument. You must not use affirmations that you inner being will conflict with and think that you are “lying to yourself”. If you believe it not to be true, it will not work.
How to avoid mental conflict Make this practical statement frequently, particularly prior to sleep:
“By day and by night I am being prospered in all of my interests.”
This affirmation will not arouse any argument because it does not contradict your subconscious mind’s impression of financial lack.
Increase your sales by repeating this statement over and over again,
“My sales are improving every day; I am advancing, progressing, and getting wealthier every day.”
Your subconscious multiplies and magnifies whatever you deposit in it. Every morning as you awaken deposit thoughts of prosperity, success, wealth, and peace. Dwell upon these concepts. Busy your mind with them as often as possible. These constructive thoughts will find their way as deposits in your subconscious mind, and bring forth abundance and prosperity.
If you convince your subconscious mind that wealth is yours, and that it is always circulating in your life, you will always and inevitably have it, regardless of the form it takes.
Repeat the word, “Wealth,” to yourself slowly and quietly for about five minutes prior to sleep and your subconscious will bring wealth to pass in your experience.
Your true source of wealth consists of the ideas in your mind. You can have an idea worth millions of dollars. Your subconscious will give you the idea you seek.
Envy and jealousy are stumbling blocks to the flow of wealth. Rejoice in the prosperity of others. If you are ever annoyed or irritated by the prosperity or great wealth of another, claim immediately that you truly wish for him greater wealth in every possible way.
The block to wealth is in your own mind. Destroy that block now by getting on good
mental terms with everyone.
Here is a simple technique you may use to multiply money in your experience. Use the following statements several times a day,
Let this be your daily affirmation; write it in your heart,
“I am one with the riches of my subconscious mind. It is my right to be rich, happy, and successful. Money flows to me freely, copiously, and endlessly. I am forever conscious of my true worth. I give of my talents freely, and I am wonderfully blessed financially. It is wonderful!”
You don’t want just enough to go around. You want all the money you need to do all the things you want to do and when you want to do them. Get acquainted with the riches of your subconscious mind.
One reason many people simply make ends meet and never have enough money is that they condemn money.
Don’t make money your sole aim. Claim wealth, happiness, peace, true expression, and love, and personally radiate love and good will to all. Then your subconscious mind will give you compound interest in all these fields of expression.
Specialize in your particular field and try to know more about it than anyone else.
A successful man is not selfish. His main desire in life is to serve humanity.
There is no true success without peace of mind.
A successful man possesses great psychological and spiritual understanding.
If you imagine an objective clearly, you will be provided with the necessities through the working power of your subconscious mind. Your thought fused with feeling becomes a subjective belief, and according to your belief is it done unto you.
Stop trying to get something for nothing. You must give to receive.
You must give mental attention to your goals, ideals, and enterprises, and your deeper mind will back you up. The key to wealth is application of the laws of the subconscious mind by impregnating it with the idea of wealth.
The first step to success is to find out the thing you love to do, then do it. Success is in loving your work.
The second step to success is to specialize in some particular branch of work and know more about it than anyone else.
The third step is the most important one. Your desire must not be selfish; it must benefit humanity.
The path of a complete circuit must be formed. Your idea must go forth with the purpose of blessing or serving the world. If it is to benefit yourself exclusively, the circle or complete circuit is not formed, and you may experience a short circuit in your life which may consist of limitation or sickness.
Success means successful living. When you are peaceful, happy, joyous, and doing what you love to do, you are successful.
Rejoice in the success, promotion, and good fortune of the other. In doing so, you attract good fortune to yourself.
