These four pieces of literature—The Science of Getting Rich, Your Invisible Power, You Were Born Rich and Think and Grow Rich—can completely transform every area of your life. Sandy Gallagher shares four ideas—one from each book—that, if you make them your habitual way of thinking, have the power to improve the quality of your life forever
PGI’s vision is “to significantly improve the quality of lives globally by elevating the quality of thoughts individually.”
One of the ways we do that is by sharing life-changing ideas with millions around the world. Ideas that dissolve boundaries and show people what is possible when they think differently.
Well, the other day, as I was preparing for our upcoming Classics Seminar, I came across four ideas that definitely fall into the life-changing category.
I would like to share those ideas with you today. If you will take them in, and make them your habitual way of thinking, your life will never be the same.
Your Invisible Power
(from Chapter 9: How I Attracted to Myself
Twenty Thousand Dollars)
“My mind is a center of Divine operations.” I endeavored to keep this statement in the back part of my consciousness all the time with no thought in mind as how the money might be obtained. Probably the reason why there was no thought of the avenues through which the money might reach me was because I could not possibly imagine where the $20,000 would come from. So I simply held my thought steady and let the power of attraction find its own ways and means.
One day while walking on the street, taking deep breathing exercises, the thought came: “My mind is surely a center of Divine operation. If God fills all space, then God must be in my mind also; if I want this money to study with Troward that I may know the truth of Life, then both the money and the truth must be mine, though I am unable to feel or see the physical manifestations of either; still,” I declared, “it must be mine.”
While these reflections were going on in my mind, there seemed to come up from within me the thought: “I am all the substance there is.” Then, from another channel in my brain the answer seemed to come, “Of course, that’s it; everything must have its beginning in mind. The “I” the Idea, must be the only one and primary substance there is, and this means money as well as everything else.” My mind accepted this idea, and immediately all the tension of mind and body was relaxed.
There was a feeling of absolute certainty of being in touch with all the power Life has to give. All thought of money, teacher, or even my own personality, vanished in the great wave of joy which swept over my entire being. I walked on and on with this feeling of joy steadily increasing and expanding until everything about me seemed aglow with resplendent light. Every person I passed was illuminated as I was. All consciousness of personality had disappeared, and its place there came that great and almost overwhelming sense of joy and contentment.
You Were Born Rich
(from Chapter 3: The Image-Maker)
The knowledge of Image-Making eliminates competition from your life, by moving you from the competitive plane to the creative plane. You will soon understand therefore, that in truth, the only competition you will ever have is with your own ignorance.
This idea truly excites me. To be more accurate, I should probably say sharing this idea with you excites me, because I know how it can improve every aspect of your life. I honestly love watching people grow or unfold as new ideas register in their consciousness.
But before I delve into this idea, please understand that everyone is using the Image-Making concept and everyone always has. In fact, everything that has ever come into your life has come as a direct result of the Image-Making process. Therefore, if you will only become aware of the results which you have obtained you will realize you have already employed this great mental tool. Just take a look at the results most people obtain. Generally speaking, you could say it is quite obvious that when they make use of their Image-Making ability, they almost always use it in the wrong way.
You Are An Image-Maker
Most religions teach that God is responsible for everything made in this world and I would fully subscribe to this proposition. However, as co-creators, human beings must bear responsibility for WHAT God makes in their lives.
The Science of Getting Rich
(from Chapter 14: The Impression of Increase)
In following the certain way—as described in the foregoing pages—you are getting continuous increase for yourself, and you are giving it to all with whom you deal. You are a creative center from which increase is given to all.
Be sure of this, and convey assurance of this fact to every man, woman, and child with whom you come in contact. No matter how small the transaction—even if it is only selling of a stick of candy to a little child—put into this action the thought of increase and make sure that the customer is impressed with the thought.
Convey the impression of advancement with everything you do, so that all people shall receive the impression that you are an advancing person and that you advance all who deal with you. Also, give people who you meet socially the thought of increase.
Think and Grow Rich
(from Step 8 Toward Riches: Persistence)
There are four simple steps which lead to the habit of persistence. They call for no great amount of intelligence, no particular amount of education, and but little time or effort. The necessary steps are:
A definite purpose backed by a burning desire for its fulfillment.
A definite plan, expressed in continuous action.
A mind closed tightly against all negative and discouraging influences, including negative suggestions of relatives, friends and acquaintances.
A friendly alliance with one or two more persons who will encourage one to follow through with both plan and purpose.
The preceding four steps are essential for success in all walks of life. The entire purpose of the thirteen principles of theThink and Grow Rich philosophy is to enable one to take these steps as a matter of habit.
Read these ideas every day, and report back to us in 30 days
Print these pages and read them every day. Internalize the feelings you have as you read. That will allow your emotions to start aligning with these life-changing ideas, and begin to pull away from your paradigm.
If you impress these ideas on your subconscious mind over and over, they will manifest in your life.
Discipline yourself to do this each day for a month. If you do, it will be a game changer for how you think of yourself and what you’re capable of.
