What Are you feeding your mind?
It is wrong to apply your will to other men and women in order to get them to do what you wish done.
Join me on this episode of the virtual entrepreneur, as we continue our reading on the book, The Science of Getting Rich by W D. Wattles. Now, today we are reading chapter number nine. Yesterday, we read chapter eight, which talked about thinking in the Certain Way, and today's chapter is going to be talking about how to use the wheel. Now, if you're new to this podcast, my name is Herbert innocent, and the goal of these past few episodes have been to look at the formula of getting rich. What this means is that for you as an entrepreneur. As a business owner, or as an affiliate marketer, we are looking at the formula that allows us to get more resources, building business takes a lot of resources. It takes a lot of our ability to have more to use so that you can create more, because nothing, no problem in business cannot be solved by having money. That is why we are here. Most of the problems in life can be solved by more money.
1:40 There's a quote I can't remember exactly by who. But if I remember correctly, I read that quote from from the book, the one page marketing.
1:50 And that, quote, said it say that money isn't everything, but it's right up there, close with oxygen, because nothing stops us from doing more than not having more money. So, in a past chapter, what we looked at where the how to use the wheel, and we looked at, you know keynote, we noticed that the chapter focused on the idea of having purpose and intent, and having a vision, right, and bold action.
2:31 The key action point for yesterday was that to write down what it is that you want into write down with clear, concise, and deep understanding, asking yourself why exactly do you want that, right, and I'll be putting a lot more resources to help us dig deeper into some of these concepts because they do apply into the world of business a lot.
2:55 Now, they may, the English in the book may be much more, much more in the literature sense, but the lessons in here are very much practical in the business world, and I see them every single day, and also.
3:10 So, what we talked about yesterday was hunger and thinking a certain way. And also, really looking deeper at your vision, and the purpose, right, because just because there's a formula doesn't mean there won't be any action needed to be taken. Right. So, before I continue rambling, that I'm going to jump right into the chapter we are going to read the chapter. And then we're going to discuss the key notes from the chapter.
3:38 Right. So chapter nine, how to use the wheel.
3:46 To set about getting rich is a sign in a scientific way. You do not need to try to apply your willpower to anything outside of yourself. You have no right to do so, anyway.
4:01 It is wrong to apply your wheels to other men and women in order to get them to do what you wish done.
4:10 It is a fragment Flug entry wrong to coerce people by mental power entities to coerce them by physical power. It is compelling people by if compelling people by physical force to do things for you, reduces them to slavery, comparing them by mental means accomplishes exactly the same thing.
4:40 The only difference is the method.
4:43 If taking things from people by force by physical forces Norbury. Then, taking things by mental force is robbery. Also, there is no difference in principle.
4:58 You have no right to use your willpower upon another person, even for his own good for you to not know what his for his good.
5:10 The Science of Getting Rich does not require you to apply your power or force to any other person in any way whatsoever.
5:24 That is not the slightest necessity for doing so. Indeed, any attempt to use your willpower upon others will only tend to defeat your purpose. You do not need to apply your willpower to things in order to compel them to come to you.
5:45 That would simply be trying to coerce God, and will be foolish and useless, as well as irrelevant.
5:56 You do not have to compare God to give you the good things any more than you have to use your willpower to make the sun rise.
6:07 You do not have to use your willpower to conquer and unfriendly deputy to make stubborn and rebellious forces do your bidding.
6:18 Substance is friendly to you, and is more anxious to give you what you want, than you are to get it to get rich, you need only use your willpower upon yourself.
6:32 When you know what to think and do. Then you must use your wheel to compel yourself to think and do the right things. That is the legitimate use of the wheel in getting what you want to use it in holding yourself to the right, cause, use your will to keep yourself thinking and acting in a certain way.
7:03 Do not try to come. Do not try to project your will, or your thoughts or your mind out into space, to act on things or people. Keep your mind at home. It can accomplish more there than anywhere else, use your mind to form a mental image of what you want and to hold that vision with face and purpose.
7:31 In the US, your reel to keep your mind working in the right way, the most deadly and continuous your faith and purpose, more rapidly, you will get rich, because you will make only positive impression upon the substance, and you will not neutralise or offset them by negative impressions.
7:56 The picture of your desires, held with face and purpose is taken upon by the Formless, and permits. Each great distance, throughout the universe. For all I know is this impression spread, all things are sad moving towards his realisation. Every living thing, every inanimate thing and the thing yet, and created.
8:26 Dude, towards bringing into being that which you want. All forces begin to exert in the direction that all things begin to move towards you.
8:43 The mind of people everywhere are influenced towards doing the thing necessary to be fruit to the fulfilling of your desire, and they work for you, and consciously, but you can check all this may starting in negative impression into the Formless Substance. Doubt or unbelief, in a certain is as certain to start a movement away from you as faith and purpose are to start one towards you.
9:19 It is not my understanding is that most people who try to make use of the Met mental science in getting rich make their failure.
9:30 Every hour and moment you spend in giving heed doubts and fears, every hour you spend in worry every hour in which your soul is possessed by unbelief. Set a current away from you in the whole domain of intelligence substance.
9:50 All the promises are onto them that belief and onto them only. Notice how insistent, Jesus was upon this point of belief.
10:05 And now you know the reason why, since belief is all important.
10:12 It behoves you, to guide your thoughts and your beliefs will be shaped to a very great extent by the things you observe, and think about it is very important that you should command your attention.
10:31 And here, they will come in to us.
10:37 For it is your wheel that you determine upon what things, your attention shall be fixed.
10:47 If you want to become rich. You must not make study of poverty.
10:54 They are not brought into being by thinking about the opposite.
11:00 Things are not brought into being by thinking about the opposite.
11:05 health is never to be attained by studying disease, and thinking about disease Racha Racha Racha out. This is not promoted by studying things and thinking about sailing and no one ever going to reach by studying poverty and thinking about poverty.
11:30 Medicine is a science of disease has increased disease religion as a science of sins has promoted sins, and economics is a study of poverty, you'll feel the world with the wretchedness and want.
11:47 Do not talk about poverty. Do not investigate it, or concern yourself with it. Never mind what is caused, what its causes. You have nothing to do with them.
11:58 What concerns you, is the cure.
12:02 Do not spend your time charitable work or charity movement. All charity only tends to perpetuate their wretched their wretchedness end to eradicate.
12:16 I'd not say that you should be hard hearted or unkind and refuse to hear the cry of need.
12:26 But you must not try to eradicate poverty in any of the conventional ways.
12:32 Put poverty behind you, and put all that pertained to eat behind you, and make good get rich. That is the best way you can help the poor, and you cannot hold the mental image, which is to make you rich. If you fill your mind with pictures of post poverty.
12:59 Do not read books or papers which is you circumstantial accounts of the wretchedness, the turn of the tenement dwellers of the horrors of the child labour, and so on. Do not read anything which fills your mind with gourami images of wanton suffering.
13:20 You cannot help the poor in the least by knowing about this, about these things, and the widespread knowledge of them does not tend at all to do away with poverty.
13:34 What tends to do away with poverty is not getting the picture of poverty into your mind, but getting the pictures of wealth, into the minds of the poor.
13:45 You are not deserting the poor in their misery when you refuse to allow your mind to be filled with pictures of that misery.
13:55 Poverty can be done away with, not by increasing the number of well to do people who think about poverty, but by increasing the number of poor people who propose, with faith, to get rich.
14:15 The poor do not need charity. They need inspiration. Charity only sends them a loaf of bread to keep them alive in their rigidness or give them an entertainment, to make them forget for now, too. But inspiration will cause them to rise out of die of the hell out of their misery. If you want to help the poor, demonstrate to them that they can become rich, prove it by getting rich yourself.
14:46 The only way in which poverty will ever be banished from this world is by getting a large and consistent increasing number of people to practice the teachings of this book. People must be taught to become rich by creation, not by competition. Every man who becomes rich by competition throws down behind him. The ladder by which he rises and keeps others down, but every man who gets rich by creation is open away for 1000s to follow him and inspires them to do so.
15:24 You do not show how hardness of heart, or unfeeling disposition, when you refuse to pity, poverty, see poverty, read about poverty or think or talk about it, or listen to those who talk about it.
15:45 Use your willpower to keep your mind off the subject of poverty and keep it fixed with faith and purpose on the vision of where you want, and of chapter nine of the science of getting rich.
16:06 All right so that chapter was filled with a very powerful message. And I mean, very powerful because I have shared very strong opinion on this subject here.
16:24 I have never believed in the idea that charity brings us anywhere better than where we were. It's always seems like charities other people's business. Right. It's just for them to get more. And it may not be for profit, but it's more to create jobs for specific people, while keeping others where they are. That's the way it has always seemed to me. Anyway, I'm going to keep those opinions aside and continue on into my notes on how these helps us with business because that is what we are here for. So,
17:02 taking you back when I was in college, one of the biggest things that I really learned before, when, you know, when I was really starting college was there was this professor. I do not recall what exactly he taught, I think it was, maths or physics. I think it was physics that he was teaching, but one of the things that he mentioned at the very beginning of the semester was.
17:31 Be careful what you feed your mind.
17:38 Think about that.
17:41 Be careful about what you feed your mind.
17:46 There are many things that we come into contact with every day. We feed our bodies we feed our souls, and we feed our mind, and I don't remember many lessons I actually don't remember much of what he taught me at all. Aside from the fact that he was from Russia. And he taught in Taya semester, and I don't remember much of I remember this lesson. Be careful what you feed your mind. And I remember sitting there on the second row of the lecture, and the students behind beside me and behind me seemed to have had a very strange reaction to that phrasing, and it doesn't matter why. But it seemed to me that our minds need to be fed and that was the first time I came to that realisation that our minds need to be fed, just as we feed our bodies. Right.
18:43 And, in ancient Rome, the idea of having sports was that you have a healthy mind in a healthy body. Right, so we feed our mind with the books that was the beginning of education, right coming about of books and scriptures, and the goal was to also feed the body while feeding the mind, right. So, this concept becomes really, really important for us intrapreneurs for two particular one particular big reason, right.
19:16 When you're in the business. Right.
19:19 You will notice there are two things. There is consumers of content of products.
19:26 And then, is creators of content of products, right now, each one of us is somewhere along the lines is what on any of these sides depending on what we're doing right and one big thing you'll notice is that if you're consuming content, Right, and if you're creating content. Those are two very different mindsets that you have, right.
19:55 And as intrapreneurs. We need to learn to shift from being a consumer, to being a creator of content, or better, to be a conscious consumer and creator of content, right. And what I mean by this is when I started business. I was also reminded by the phrase that. Be careful what you feed your mind, right. You need to have a very specific plan of fun to feed your mind. But what really, I suppose, stuck with me moving forward was that it is so easy to get caught up in the consuming of content that most people end up consuming mindlessly right. Scrolling down on social media platforms and forgetting why exactly are consuming, and as intrapreneurs our attention, our time are very valuable, and where we put them when we put those two things. That is where our results are going to come from. They're not going to come from just mindlessly consuming data coming from consuming content with an intention to take action to get a very specific, measurable result. Right.
21:12 Specific, measurable result that is what we want at the end of all these consume consumption of content, right, and so we want to shift our mindsets from seeing problems and roadblocks to seeing opportunities, and the only way we can really do that is by being conscious of our mind when we are consuming content, Right, by being actually conscious of what is going on through our thoughts. Right. And so one example that I've used in the past episodes was that if you want to study how other successful people are doing things right, how they're running their businesses, how they're running their ads, then we must stop consuming those ads.
22:00 It's not studying them, looking at an ad and looking at the elements, why did that ad, catch your attention. Right. Why did that presentation, get your attention. Why did it get you motivated. How did it get you to take action, especially if they got you to spend money, you need to study why it got you to start to spend that money. What was the phrase that use that got you from where you were to take out your credit card and purchasing that product, because it is understanding these principles that we are able to use them.
22:39 To effectively inspire others to take action. Positive Action. Right. And so that is where I want to leave us today, right.
22:53 I'm going to leave us today here because there was just gonna go a very long, and the action for what I want us to do today is to become actively conscious of our thoughts. So I want you to start thinking, and be conscious of what you're thinking about. Is it positive is it negative does inspire you or does it bring you down. And when you see an odd because be looking at them consciously studying them any content you consume studies, because I can guarantee you, if it has an effect on you it's going to have an effect on other people and understanding that is a basic step.
23:31 This is not an original lesson from me. This is what one of my mentors taught me, and I'm just delivering it to you. Thank you so much for tuning in on this episode of the virtual enterpreneur, I will talk to you on our next episode. Have a good day. Have a wonderful evening.
