Mindset Mastery 51 – A 6 Step Plan For Wealth

Mindset Mastery eBookThere was a distinct difference between Marshall Field and his peers. There was also a distinct difference between Edwin Barnes and his peers. And there was a distinct similarity shared between Field and Barnes. Ultimately that similarity was wealth and success; in the beginning it was pure, simple, desire for it. Hill explains this, and then he takes us further to lay out a concrete plan for developing an unbending on desire.

Mark The Difference

“Pay close attention and mark this difference between Marshall Field and his peers; it is the same difference which distinguishes Edwin C. Barnes from thousands of other young men who worked in the Edison organization. It is the same difference which distinguishes practically all persons who succeed from those who fail.

Every human being who is old enough to understand the purpose of money, wishes he or she had plenty of it. Wishing will not bring wealth. But desiring wealth, in a state of mind that becomes an obsession, then planning definite ways and means to acquire wealth, and backing up those plans with persistence which does not recognize failure, will bring wealth.

The Six-Step Plan

6 step planThe method through which desire for wealth is turned into its financial equivalent, is comprised of six definite, practical steps, including–

  1. Fix your mind on the exact amount of money you desire. It is not enough to simply say “I want lots of money.” Be definite in regards to the amount. (There is a psychological reason for definiteness which will be described in a subsequent chapter).
  2. Determine exactly what you intend to give in return for the money you desire. (There is no such thing as “something for nothing.)
  3. Set a definite date when you intend to possess the amount of money you desire.
  4. Create a definite plan for carrying out your desire, and begin immediately; whether you are ready or not, to put this plan into action.
  5. Put it in writing. Write a clear, concise statement including each of these tenets–the amount of money you intend to acquire, the time limit for its acquisition, what you intend to give in return for the money, and a clear description of the plan you intend to use to accumulate it.
  6. Read your written statement aloud, twice every day; read it once just before you go to bed at night, and once when you wake up in the morning. As you read—see and feel and believe you already possess the money.

Wishes Vs. Desire

I think by now you are starting to see the difference between the people who just wish for money and the people who really, truly desire to have it. The people who do not find wealth through the Law of Attraction are often those who try to wish their wealth their way. Those are the people who do not get that there is more to it, and that a fleeting wish now and then does not have the substance behind it to attract wealth.

    Good morning Sean

    This is so true. I have been reading alot of your stuff and I also have recently read Gerry Hicks and his wife’s book also called The Law of Attraction. Absolutely fantastic stuff. I have personally experienced the power of the law of attraction in it’s negative form and I learned a big lesson from that.
    I have now decided it is wealth health and happiness I sincerely want and I am working towards that. The power of the mind is incredible and I am now removing all negative thoughts from my mind. This stuff really works. I have had a great experience this week in a falling share market and am convinced it is positive thinking that provides benefits no matter what the external conditions are. I also went into partnership 18 months ago and we are flying along. It is just fantastic to enjoy life so much.

    Thank you for taking the time to share your world with ours.

    Regards, Angela

    Dear Sean,

    What a great post! I guess the only obstacle we have to overcome is our own poverty concious. Thank you for helping me re-programing my mind-set.

  4. I too, have read Esther and Gerry Hicks and listened to one of their tapes with Abraham and they are phenomenal. Things are starting to happen, and it is quite fabulous. I am taking only baby steps and what is coming back is giant steps. WOW! This Law of Attraction is great. I love it.

    Hi Sean,
    I always think that if there is something you badly desire but you haven’t written it down, created a plan for how you will set about achieving that goal, and are actively and consistently working that plan; it’s just a wish. In all likelihood, it will remain a wish. You will never have it.
    I’ve learned this the hard way. I have been guilty of this. The best successes I have had always come when I take the time to plan for them.

  6. The funny thing is – if it is already naturally a burning desire you can’t stop yourself but think about it all the time and think of ways to achieve it. Whom to ask, what to try, where to go.
    But the great thing is that with this 6 Steps as laid out by Napoleon Hill we can create that same mindset for things we want to have but are not so convinced (yet) as that we can achieve them. We are the master of our brain. If we implant that seed and help it grow our brain won’t know any different as that this is what is happening – and we will figure out the “how” on the way.

    Thanks for the reminder. Why is this not taught at school???

  7. This is my favourite post, Sean. Not because I know all the rest at all, but because this really does define the process. Doing what this page talks about certainly is enhanced hugely by reading all the other posts. Thank you for all of this.

    • Hi Jo,

      I’m with you. This has to be one of my favourite posts. It’s definitely had a huge impact on me. It’s incredible that just by writing the six steps down and tailoring them to what you want to achieve; reading the steps daily and visualising your success; you can actually make it happen.

      The plan seems so simple and yet it works. You just have to be dedicated enough to do the steps.

  8. Hello Sean,

    A great 6 step plan for wealth. I see how wishing is different from desire. I also have a goal book with a detailed plan but must admit I have not taken the time to read it lately. Thanks for reminding me to get it out and visit my detailed plan each morning and each night….I think when life gets too busy we forget the little important task that really we need to be aware of.

    I have a desire and I know deep down what I am seeking for will come about.

  9. I guess it’s a bit like riding a bike. Someone could devise a six step plan for learning how to ride a bike. Once the six steps are mastered, bike riding is a breeze, you are successful, you no longer need the plan as such, you do it all naturally.

  10. Hi Sean,
    The 6 step plan here in this article is a big help to get me started with this learning. I have most of it in place due to the competition. This is a great opportunity to put this learning into practice right now. Wow!

    Jo, is correct when she said this is probably the best article because it defines the process of the readings from the previous articles. It’s up to me now to plan my wealth strategy from the 6 steps here to guide me.

  11. Thanks Sean, this taught me a great lesson especially to fix my mind on the exact amount and being definite. There is definitely a pshycological reason as you said. I really donot want to wish for money but to have a desire to achieve something and to help the poor & needy.
