Mindset Mastery 53 – What Hill’s Steps Require

Mindset Mastery eBookThe steps we talked about in the last post require very little in terms of prerequisite preparation; like wealth creation, these steps really only require the willingness to see them through. They are for all people, from all walks of life.

What You Don’t Need

“The steps do not call for any “hard labor.” They do not call for sacrifice. They do not require a person to be naïve or gullible. A person does not have to have extensive education in order to apply them successfully. But applying these six steps successfully does call for a sufficient capacity for imagination to enable a person to see, and to understand, that the accumulation of money cannot be left to chance, good fortune, and luck. It is essential to realize that every person who has accumulated great wealth first did a certain amount of dreaming, hoping, wishing, desiring, and planning before they acquired money.

Face Facts: What You Do Need

You may as well face the fact now, that you can never have money in substantial amounts, unless you can work yourself into a white heat of desire for money, and actually believe you will possess it.

You may as well face the fact, too, that every great leader, from the dawn of civilization to now, was a dreamer. Julius Caesar and the Romans dreamt of building an empire; George Washington dreamt of a free America; the Wright brothers dreamt of flying; and Nelson Mandela dreamt of delivering his country from racial divisiveness and oppression into a free and democratic society. And, lofty as these goals must have seemed in the beginning, every one of these dreamers achieved what they set out to do and realized, within their own time, their dreams in physical reality. These men, great leaders of all-time, had the vision and imagination abundant enough to see the realities in their visions before they ever took their physical forms.

If you do not see abundant wealth in your imagination, you will never see it in your bank account.”

The Way Of The Wealthy

As so many wealth experts will tell you, wealth starts in the mind, not the wallet. It is that garden you have to cultivate first, otherwise real wealth will never materialize.

    Good thoughts Sean, planning is the key issue to all in life, at this stage of my life i wish i had been taught all about planning and live for today not tomorrow.

    I will say I’m learning a lot now though.

    Wealth” starts in the mind”. My mind is telling me to go to Collins St., Melbourne in Feb 09. Good idea!!!

  4. LOL. Well said, Grace. I have one of your species (female) in my family too and I think she agrees with your way of thinking. 😉

    Hi Sean,
    I like to use visualization in every area of my life. I find that if I can create ‘movies’ in my mind and fill them with emotions it makes it easier for me believe that it is possible to achieve what my heart desires.
    There are many ways to visualize what we desire. It can be as simple as visiting a car yard and touching the car of our dreams and seeing ourselves driving the car. I find that the more I use this technique, the easier it seems for me to believe that I can have or do the thing I desire.

  6. Everything starts with a dream, an idea. Otherwise we would only copy what is already existing. But that way we wouldn’t create anything new. And I think everybody agrees that we humans are creating a lot of things on a daily basis.
    The way of the wealthy is just more conscious than that of most other people. They don’t stop at the wishing base but move on to make it a strong desire on which they will act. And everybody around them will help them to achieve it in one way or another.
    Mindset rules the world 🙂

  7. It’s a breakthrough when you finally get that wealth starts in the mind. Most of us go for so long thinking it’s something else outside of us. When you discover this truth, it’s like being awakened with The Secret.

  8. You know, intellectually I get these words, and nod wisely, and even convey them to others in various ways pretty much all my life. Getting through the veil that I have over my own imagination is one of my greatest challenges. Not as terrible as it sounds, it’s better than a lot of occupations I can think of.. there, it’s working already! I’m thinking – now the next step……..

  9. Want it, imagine it, plan it, be certain of it, intensely. This, to me, is the message of this post.

  10. Hi Sean,
    Visualization comes naturally with most things however to consciously visualize having money is another concept all together. I will be worked on it as I am seeing that I have not before put an importance on this area like I should be doing.

    I like the idea and as Jazz said, go and look and touch what is wanted and visualize yourself having it. I recall when I wanted a piece of furniture I did go through this process. I knew what I wanted, where I wanted it from, and how much I wanted to pay and I got just what I wanted. I know it does work visualization and planning. I need to develop the burning desire for money, as the article here instructs me to do.

    Great Sean Thank-you.

  11. Hi Jill,

    I still find it a little amazing that it works. I grew up thinking the only way to be successful was to get a job and work hard. If I was prepared to sacrifice and make smart decisions with my money; I would be wealthy.

    It’s not totally true. I mean, there is some truth to that but the bigger truth is that you must learn to control your mind. You must learn the principle of success and apply them. That is the true path to wealth.

    And, learning to visualise what you want is a big part of it.
