Have you ever found yourself wondering ” What is THE secret to attracting wealth “?
After all, sometimes it seems like making money is so easy for some people and seemingly so hard for others.
I, along with many others, believe that there is, in fact, a secret to attract money and wealth into our lives. The great news is that you can find and apply this secret pretty easily if you just know how and where to look.
It’s 2018! Have you read or at least heard about the book Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill? If not NOW is the time to go check it out. Seriously, go HERE and order a copy and read it!
The timeless knowledge in this classic guidebook about converting YOUR thoughts into wealth through planning and focused action has never seemed truer, or more useful, than it is today!
Opportunity is EVERYWHERE. The key is learning the secret to attracting wealth which is really the secret of how to tap into the endless stream of abundance all around us and claim what is yours.
One of the most time- tested and fastest way to do so is by setting goals for what you want to achieve in life.
Is This The Secret To Attracting Wealth ?
In his book, Napoleon Hill says that acquiring anything you want starts with a strong definite desire. However, as we all know just having a desire for something (i.e. a new car, a new job, financial freedom, etc…) is not enough. If it was, we would all just say “I want a Ferrari!” and the next time we walked out to our driveway one would be sitting there. That’s not the way it works!
Mr. Hill doesn’t call his method “goal setting” , but rather refers to it as definite and organized planning.
He outlines six steps to achieving ones desire (goal). They are as follows:
The Steps Of Definite And Organized Planning – The Secret To Attracting Wealth
- Fix in your mind the exact goal you wish to achieve. For our purposes our goal is financial freedom. Take some time to determine EXACTLY how much money you NEED to be financially free (financially free = bringing in enough money to pay all of your living expenses and bills). Take your time with this step. It is probably the most important. In order to reach our goals of developing passive income channels that produce enough money to obtain financial freedom it is important that we know what that amount actually is. After all, it’s much easier to aim at a target when you ACTUALLY have a target!!
- Determine what you intend to give in exchange for the goal you desire. This one sometimes throws people off when they first hear it. However, everything in life is a result of receiving AND giving. Our goal is to develop systems that help us obtain financial freedom. What we will give in order to achieve that will be the product(s) and/or services we decide to deliver.
Gain A Clear Focus Of Where You Want To Go!
Now that you have determined what it is you want (your goal) and what you are willing to give in exchange for your goal you are ready to move on to the steps that help to solidify your success.
3. Establish a definite date to reach your goal. This one is important. Without a clear end point in mind a large amount of goals fizzle out before completion. Determining and committing to a definite end date breaks down psychological barriers in your mind and greatly help you ensure your chances of reaching your goal of financial freedom.
4. Create a definite and detailed plan of how you plan to obtain your goal and begin at ONCE to work toward achieving it. The most important part of this step is to TAKE ACTION! While the planning portion is certainly vital it is stressed that you are to begin at once to take action on your plan. Don’t be a victim of “analysis paralysis” like so many others. As we will discuss later, we can always revise our plans if (and when) things change. Just get started and do it NOW!
Keep Going! You Are Almost There!
By this point you should be pretty clear on where you are and where you want to go (your goal). If you are not clear, take more time to GET clear! In order to reach our goal of Financial Freedom it is important that our minds are honed in on the idea and that we are able to really get the feeling of obtaining the Financial Freedom we desire. This is truly the Secret To Attracting Wealth.
Move on to these next two steps! Spent some time on them and definitely don’t gloss them over. The more detailed you are with this process the more successful you will be and the FASTER your success will come!
5. WRITE out a clear concise statement of numbers 1-4 above. Make your written statement clear and as detailed as possible. I have found that this step works best when I physically get out pen and paper and write it down. It seems that something is lost when you type your goals on a computer or tablet.
6. Read your statement from number 5 out loud two times a day once in the morning and once at night. While you are reading the statement you should be visualizing success and FEELING how you would feel once your goal has been met

Depending on how clear you are on your direction this process can take anywhere from thirty minutes to several days. The key is to find the balance between really solidifying your goal and not having what is termed “analysis paralysis”. Remember Step 4 says to TAKE ACTION.
