How much more do I need to say?
Welcome to day 6 of The Science of Getting Rich. I hope you are starting to grasp the understanding of how possible it is to create wealth for yourself and your family. For five days I have shared with you “THE SCIENCE” behind it all. And I want to inspire you further as we go into another very important chapter in this book, The Science of Getting Rich
So, without further delay, let’s begin with Chapter 5 – Increasing Life
A seed dropped into the ground, springs into activity, and in the act of living, produces a hundred more seeds. Life, by living, multiplies itself. It is forever becoming more; it must do so to continue to exists.
Intelligence is under this same necessity for continuous increase. Every thought we think makes it necessary for us to think another thought. Consciousness is continually expanding. Every fact we learn leads us to the learning of another fact. Knowledge is continually increasing. Every talent we cultivate brings to the mind the desire to cultivate another talent. We are subject to the urge of life. In seeking expression for this urge, we are impelled to know more, to do more, and to be more.
In order to know more, do more, and be more, we must have more. We must have things to use because we learn and do and become only by using things. We must get rich so that we can live more.
Life is so much better when you have a few bucks in your pocket to do more of the things you desire. Just ask my friend, Emma Tiebens. Emma’s story of success is a great story in itself, but I will save that story for another day. What I want to share with you is the lifestyle she lives. In the past seven months that I have known her, she has just about traveled the globe. She’s attended numerous business events, each costing hundreds of thousands of dollars, not to mention the cost of getting to the location of the events. On top of that, she’s taken several leisure cruises and family trips to places that many people can only dream of taking. It’s a dream for most because they simply can not afford the cost. But this is not the case with Emma. What’s a dream for most is reality for her. And that reality is possible because she’s inspired to know more.. do more.. and be more. Thus, she lives more..
Get rid of the idea that God wants you to sacrafice yourself for others, that you can secure his favor by doing so. God requires nothing of the kind.
What He wants is that you should make the most of yourself – for yourself and others. And, you can help others more by making the most of yourself than in any other way.
This goes back to the introduction – Are Christians Allowed to Be Wealthy?
You must get rid of the thought of competition. You are to create, not compete for what is already created. You do not have to take anything away from anyone. You do not have to drive sharp bargains. You do not have to cheat or to take advantage. You do not need o let any man work for you for less than he earns.
You do not have to covet the property of others or to look at it with wishful eyes. no one has anything of which you cannot have the same. And, you can have it without taking what he has away from him.
I know many will tell you that you must be a fierce competitor in order to produce wealth in this industry. Well, I beg to differ. There is a limitless supply of riches and no one can stop you from getting what is yours. If you are creative, honest and inspired to succeed, you will without a doubt – SUCCEED. And, if you are doing things “a certain way,” you will become rich!
Join me again tomorrow as I continue to tear apart this awesome wealth manual for you. Chapter 6 – How Riches Come To You will be the discussion. As I have said at the conclusion of the previous chapters, you won’t want to miss this!
Until tomorrow.. Be Inspired, Be Encouraged & Be Yourself!
