You must have it before you can give in.
And many people fail to press the Thinking Substance, because they have themselves, only the vague and missed concept of the being the one to do to have or to become.
0:24 Join me virtual intrapreneurs on this new episode of the virtual enterpreneurs. As we continue reading the book, The Science of Getting Rich by W D. Wattles. Today we are reading chapter eight, and the way the episode is going to go, is we're going to read the chapter. And because the chapter is slightly longer I'm gonna keep my notes, shorter, but they're still very powerful and very important. And then after that we'll have a call to action for you guys to take.
0:59 And if you have any questions, or if you've ever had any questions, feel free to send me a message back, or you can just ask me the question at WWW dot Herbert marketing help.com That's where the podcast is. And aside from that, the past episode we read was about gratitude, and we looked at the concept of us needing us as intrapreneurs business owner and beginner marketers, we need to change the concepts and the mind sets, you know head. The reason why we need to change that is we need to start seeing problems that we are faced with everyday as new opportunities, right, and a very good example I remember just yesterday after, as soon as I finished reading and puffing the recording episode was, if you didn't read the book. Start with Why buy.
1:56 What's the guy's name, haha, escaped escape. Guys this is being recorded live escaped by Simon Sinek, so the book Start With Why by Simon Sinek, is an example they have.
2:11 I think West Airlines. They, you know, they were faced with the problem that they didn't have enough aeroplane and so they had to come up with a new way that they could turn around their aeroplanes.
2:23 As soon as they've landed, and onboard, all the customers, and still take off on time, you know to make up the budget. And it seemed like a very difficult task at the time and doing that gave them the biggest and the best competitive advantage on in the airline industry and I think it has the name now to do called the five minutes turn around today. Apparently it's not so five minutes anymore, it used to be. But the idea was that they could learn the plane and turn it around and in five minutes have everyone on board and, and he read it and read in prepared, you know, when it took off. Now I'm not so sure we're having everyone on board, but the idea was five minutes to turn the brain around and ready to take off after people have have gotten on board. Now, it's things like these where we look through the problems and realise the only way is through that we come up with new intuitive and advantage and powerful ways to progress through these problems. And so that was the key theme of yesterday's chapter of the book, The Science of Getting Rich by WD Wildlands. So today we are reading chapter eight, as I said in the chapter is called, thinking in the Certain Way,
3:39 chapter eight, thinking in a certain way.
3:43 Turn back to chapter seven, and read chapter six, and read again about the story of the man who formed a mental image of his house, you will get a fair idea of the initial step towards getting rich. You must form a clear and definitive mental picture of what you want. You cannot transmit an idea unless you have it yourself. You must have it before you can give it. And many people fail to impress. Thinking Substance because they have themselves only a vague and misty concept of the thing they want to do, to have or to become.
4:28 It is not enough that you should have a general desire of wealth, to do good with everybody has a desire, it is enough that you should have a wish to travel to see things live more, etc. Everybody has those desires also. It is also. If also, you are going to send a wireless message to a friend, you would not send the letters of the alphabet in their order, and let him construct the message for himself, nor would you take words at random from a dictionary, you would send a coherent sentence, one which meant something. When you try to impress your once upon substance. Remember that it must be done by a coherent statement, you must know what you want and be definitive.
5:31 You can never get rich, or start the creative power into action by sending out and uniform longings and vague desires.
5:43 Go over your desires just as demand, I have described went over his house, see just what you want, get a clear mental picture for it. As you wish it to look, when you get it.
5:59 That here, mental picture. You must have continued in your mind as a sailor has in his mind, the port towards which is sailing the ship.
6:13 You must keep your faith, your face towards it at all times. You must no more lose sight of it than this demon loses sight of the compass.
6:26 It is not necessary to take exercise in concentration, not to set apart, special times for prayers and or end affirmations, not to go into the silence, not to do a coat dance of any kind.
6:44 These things are well enough, but all you need is to know what you want, and want it badly enough so that it will stay in your thoughts.
6:56 Spend as much of your leisure time, as you can. In contemplating your picture.
7:04 But no one needs to take exercise in concentration his mind, all the things which you really want is the thing that you don't really care about, which require effort to fix your attention upon them, and unless you really want to get rich, so that you, the desire is strong enough to hold your thoughts directly on purpose. When the purpose, as the magnet poll holds the needle, the compass. It will hardly be worthwhile for you to try to carry out the instructions given in this book.
7:41 The method here in set forth for the people who desire for riches is strong enough to overcome mental laziness and the love of ease and make them work.
7:53 The more clear and definitive, you make the picture. Then, and the more you dwell upon it. Bring it out, bring it all out into delightful details. The longer the stronger your desire will be and the stronger your desire, the easier it will be to hold your mind fixed up on the picture you want something more is necessary. However, then Amir's than merely to see the picture clearly, if that is all you do. You are really only a dreamer, and will have little or no power for accomplishment.
8:35 Behind you clear vision must be the purpose to realise it to bring it out into tangible expression. And behind this purpose must be an insane vincible and unwavering FAITH that the thing is already yours, that it is at hand, and you have only to take possession of it, leaving the new house, mentally, until he takes form around you physically in the mental realm entered once into full enjoyment of the things you want.
9:13 What, whoever whatsoever things you ask when you pray, believe that you shall receive them, and you shall have them say Jesus, see the things you want, as if they were actually around you at all times, see yourself as owning and using them, make use of them in imagination, just as you will use them when they are your tangible possession.
9:47 Dwell upon your mental picture until it is clear and distinct, and then take the mental attitude of ownership towards everything in that picture, take possession of it in mind. In the full faith that it is actually yours, hold to this mental ownership. Do not waver. For an instant, in the face, that it is real.
10:16 And remember what was said in the preceding chapter about gratitude.
10:22 Be as thankful for it all the time as you expect to be.
10:30 It has when it has taken form.
10:34 The man who can sincerely thank God for the things which, as yet, he owns only imagination has real faith.
10:47 He will get rich you He will cause the creation of whatsoever he wants.
10:55 You do not need to pray repeatedly for things you want.
10:59 It's not necessary to tell God about it every day use not vain repetition is then havens do say Jesus, to his people, for your Father knows, knows that you have need of these things before you ask him.
11:26 Your path is to intelligently formulate your desires for things which make your love, which makes for a larger life.
11:35 And to get these desires arranged into coherent world, whole, and then to impress this whole desire upon the Formless Substance, which has the power and the will to bring you what you want.
11:55 You do not make this impression by repeating things strings of words. You make it by holding the vision with unshakable PURPOSE to attain it.
12:06 And with the steadfast faith that you will do attain it.
12:12 The answer to prayer is not according to your faith, while you take money while you talk, but according to faith, while you're working.
12:24 You cannot impress the mind of God by having special Sabbath day, set apart. Tell him what you want, and then forget him during the rest of your week. You cannot impress him. By having special hours to go into your closet and pray. If you then dismiss the matter from your mind until the hour of prayer comes again, or prayer is well enough, and has its effect, especially upon yourself in qualifying your vision and strengthening your faith, but it is not your oral oral petition, which gets you where you want, not to get rich. You do not need a sweet hour of prayer. You need to pray without ceasing.
13:13 In by prayer. I mean, holding steadily to your own vision, with the purpose of to cause its creation into solid form, and the faith that you are doing so.
13:31 Believe that you received in the whole matter turns to receiving.
13:40 Once you've clearly formed your vision. When you have formed it it well, to make oral statement addressing the supreme in reverse and prayer.
13:54 And from that moment, you must in mind, receive what you asked for. Leave in the new house, where the final clothes, ride in the automobiles, go on a journey and confident to plan for greater journeys, think and speak, of all things. You have asked for, in turn, in terms of actual present ownership.
14:23 Imagine environment, and the financial condition, exactly as you want them, and then leave all the time in that imaginary environment in financial condition mind however that you do not do this, as mayor dreamer and castle building holds to the faith that the imaginary is being realised, and do their purpose to realise it into the purpose to realise it. Remember that it is faith and purpose in the use of imagination, which makes a difference between science and the dreamer and having learned this chapter. It is here that you must learn the purpose, the proper use of the wheel, and of chapter eight of self the science of getting rich.
15:23 So, as I said that chapter was a little bit longer than our usual chapters, and there's a lot in that chapter, and just to try and summarise some of the points I remember the very first point to remember is purpose, right, and as an intrapreneur if you haven't heard about purpose, then you must be very new to the game because the whole idea of building a business. If you do not have a purpose. You are on the wrong planet. The intrapreneurship, in terms of intrapreneurship, because purpose is what drives us forward in all our endeavours.
16:03 Right. And the next thing that I remember here is, you must work towards it. Right, imagination, without action. It's the same as dreaming. There is no magic involved, it's work. Right. And when I first got into the world of building businesses, one of the very first thing that I remember learning was your vision statement, your mission statement, and then I think there was also your goal. Something like that. There were several things but I think you'll go really stuck out as one of the key things that you really need to have on your mind at all times. Right. And so, this chapter really brings together the key and core fundamental of where you, your business really starts right. It starts with your very strong desire, right, of creating something, because when you're creating a business, you are creating something completely out of nothing, and it grows and it brings in new people, and it evolves, but over time. One of the biggest things that I've learned is that small businesses and big businesses they were all built, the way the.
17:26 Nobody builds a small business, and then it grows into big business, big businesses we build big and small businesses we build small, and that is the way things are. And one of the two things I wanted to do is I wanted to read the book, the intrapreneur myth by Michael Gerber, and the book.
17:48 Start with Why by Simon Sinek, those two books will be will make this chapter really irrelevant, they will open your world. They will open your mind into your into the world of business beyond imagining. Because, starting with why talks about purpose. The power of purpose and how it pushes intrapreneurs business owner, even presidents, even people who have set forward movements that have transformed our society to the way it is today. It all started with purpose, why, why, why, right. And so if you go into the world of creating something out of nothing.
18:33 Purpose is going to be the driving force of all of it, because everything is going to be hard. It's going to be difficult today is going to be roadblocks that were unforeseen and purposes we're going to push through all that.
18:48 Right, so those two books are very critical. Now the one thing, going back into my note I strained away from my notes there for a little bit. Now going back into my notes, one of the biggest thing that I'm seeing on this chapter as well, is the concept of hunger. Right. Do you want it bad enough that it's the only thing you think about in going through it is the only solution to move forward.
19:15 Do you want it that bad, because that makes all the difference in his success talk, Dan Locke talked about hunger, and he described hunger for success.
19:30 And he says, the difference between those who enjoy them, and those who don't, is not because one of them has a special talent or a special relationship, or all these other beautiful things that make you success.
19:46 He says, The reason, what makes one successful, and one other one not is not special connection, it's not all these resources can help, but it's hunger to want it bad enough that you're willing to put yourself through the headache.
20:11 And through all the struggles that it comes with wanting something great. Right. And so, and Coach Tony Robbins, wanting it hard enough is not enough.
20:25 You must be wanting it hard enough to do everything it takes to get it in quote Tony Robbins, Tony Robbins, one of the things that he says in one of his talks, is if you want the island, burn the boats.
20:41 Right. and so by burning the board essentially there is no way back. And I think that's going to be the last point for this podcast because I don't want to run over time. So I hope you enjoyed that. If you did, please share it with a friend.
