Hard work is the secret to wealth, right?


We both know many people who work hard and barely move ahead. And we also know people who seem to have all the time in the world and have built a fortune.

There is a lot more to wealth than this and this was first discovered by one of the best authors that ever lived – Napoleon Hill. His book “Think and Grow Rich” is the Bible of using LoA for wealth manifestation. Tens of thousands of people have used his principles to manifest fortunes for themselves and for their loved ones.

If you want to learn how to become rich using LoA, then get this book. It is free. It is  a quick read. It’s also better than courses costing thousands of dollars and far more practical.

But getting back to our topic, how do billionaires manifest wealth, money and prosperity?

Element #1 – Desire

Without desire, you have nothing. Desire is the magnetic force of the universe. It draws people and circumstances together. It puts the right opportunities in your path. It makes the impossible possible.

If you want something, you’ll have it.

The more you desire it, the more likely you are to manifest it.

This is because when you feel a strong desire and attachment towards an outcome, you end up getting clear on what you want. You become very emotional about it. This is the universe’s cue to help you create it.

And then, when you desire something, you take massive action. You don’t just wait for it to come to you. You put in the hours, the work, day in and day out.

Element #2 – Faith

Faith works in a strange way.

If you have faith that something will happen, it probably will. This works both in a positive and negative way. I call it a self-fulfilling prophecy. If you are sure that something will happen, then you’ll act in certain ways that will make it true.

But the thing about faith is that you can’t have proof. You need to walk ahead, through the dark, knowing there’s a door at the end. If you expect the door to show itself up, then you’ll be disappointed. You must also believe you’ll get what you want even when you have setbacks and problems and you feel like losing.

If you have faith and move forward, then you’ll be rewarded with countless signs you’re on the right path. If you expect for the signs to show up and then have faith in what you want to manifest, then nothing will happen.

Element #3 – Auto Suggestion

You may know this under self-hypnosis or affirmations or brainwave entrainment. There are many ways to apply auto-suggestion. The idea is always the same – by repeating something again and again and adding emotion to it; you end up believing it.

It’s said if you repeat yourself a lie for 31 days, you’ll accept it as the truth.

The problem is that you apply auto-suggestion at all times. You may not even realize it. You tell yourself things; you repeat them and you believe them. If you say something like “I’m worthless” or “I always fail”, what you think will happen? You’ll act in ways that make this true. If you say “I’m healthy and I attract wealth”,the opposite will happen. Together with the universe, you’ll create good health and wealth”.

This works because most of the time, you are just half awake. You don’t really think of what you’re doing. Rather, you’re following a pre-determined script found in your subconscious mind. This is the real you.

Through auto-suggestion and techniques like hypnosis or technologies like NLP, you can program your subconscious mind with new ideas and suggestions. This will change what you do and will make success effortless.

Element #4 – The Use Of Imagination

Visualization is a well-known technique, used in everything from business to sports. Practicing something in your mind can be just as effective as doing it in real life. For manifestation, you visualize the life you desire before you manifest it.

Consider your imagination like a blueprint for reality. You paint what you want there and then you co-create it with the universe. Day dreaming is visualization but the deliberate, intentional one, where you focus on creating specific images works even better.

While as children our parents scolded us for using our imagination too much or for daydreaming, in reality, this is an amazing tool for achieving success, financial or otherwise.

Element #5 – The Sixth Sense

This idea is introduced by Napoleon Hill. All these ideas were introduced by him. These are the spiritual concepts found in the book Think and Grow Rich.

Most people confuse it with instinct, a sixth sense that tells you what to do. It is so much more than this. The sixth sense is your ability to connect to the universal intelligence and gain access to all the knowledge of the universe. It’s when let knowledge come to you instead of you pursuing it.

A way many scientists and inventors applied the sixth sense is through the power of dreaming. The way you do this is simple. Before going to sleep, ask your subconscious mind to help you find you the solution to a problem that bothered you for a long time. Focus on it. Make it clear in your mind what you are looking.

Place a notebook and a pen next to your bed.

The next morning, as soon as you wake up, write. You will find your solution in what you have just dreamt or you’ll know it. It’s scary how effective it is. It doesn’t work every single time but when it does, it will be like someone came during the night and added this piece of wisdom into your brain.

This also works well when you empty your mind through meditation or those rare moments of clarity.

You may also have experienced this. Think about a time when you have taken a shower and while you were washing, you came with an insight or a solution to a problem that was almost impossible to solve.

It’s no wonder that most people come with brilliant solutions while showering. The water, the heat, the confined space, that there are no distractions (or until they make phones waterproof) makes your mind susceptible to the infinite intelligence. True genius and intelligence doesn’t require you to work harder or to read more. It requires emptying your mind so you can access the wisdom of the ages.

Element #6 – Decision

Something magical happens when you decide.

It’s like you say to yourself “I’ve had enough and I’ll not take it anymore”. You commit yourself to change and change comes soon after.

To decide means “to cut any other choices”. When you decide to become wealthy, you cut the choice of being poor. This is a strong sign you show to the universe you really care about your success. It’s also the key that opens the door to prosperity because once you decide that you don’t want to be poor anymore and you want to experience wealth, you’re cutting off any option in which you can be poor.

However, keep in mind that most decisions are fake decisions. When you decide, you can’t go back. It’s like giving your key back to your landlord and knowing you can never return to your old home again. You are opening new options while closing old ones. So if you want to have a better life, keep in mind you can’t turn back, otherwise it’s not a real decision.

Element #7 – Persistence

Action is critical to manifestation. The universe will put in your place the people and circumstances you need to achieve success but you must still act on them. You must act on those circumstances and meet those people. Nobody will do this for you.

You may not always achieve success right away. I’m sorry but you don’t hike a mountain just by taking a few steps. It may take longer for reasons that will become clear to you later. And the best advice I can give you here is to persist and not give up. Not giving up sends a clear signal to the universe that this goal is important to you and the more you try, the easier will become.

Consider it as a test. Each time life is hard and you amble ahead, it test you to see how much you really want your goal. Pass this test by never giving up.
