First let us get something cleared up, the universe is the provider of all things, some people call this god, the Great Spirit, the higher power, and so forth. For this article, we will call it the universe. Now the universe will give you everything you ask for, and you ask for things by thinking about them and saying words concerning them and then your subconscious will accept this as you desire and will transmit this to the universe that will then provide the stated desire.
One thing you should understand is that the universe has an ironic sense of humor; it will give you exactly what you ask for, and no less. For todayís lesson, we will use the lottery as the example. Without further ado, how many times have you prayed and wished to win the lottery? I am willing to bet you have already won, and donít realize it. Most states and regions have a lottery system that when you buy a ticket there are levels that you can win, for example if you match two you get a free ticket, and if you match three you get like five bucks, and so on. Have you matched two or three? If so then you have won the lottery, your prayer was answered and your wish granted, but you did not realize it. So you see you did win the lottery, yet you were not happy.
The universe does what it does to make us happy, it likes the feeling of happy and will do whatever it must do to grant your desires in an effort to make you happy. If you receive something and it makes you happy then you should offer gratitude to the universe to ensure that you continue to receive more things that make you happy. When you matched three numbers and got your five bucks, did you thank the universe for making you happy? Probably not, if fact you were most likely feeling a little disappointed. So you confused the universe and caused it to no longer want to help you win the lottery as it didnít make you happy.
Well what does this have to do with think and grow rich? It has a lot to compare to, in that you have to think, and think in the correct manner to grow rich. Sure, there are many other ways to get rich besides the lottery so you must accept the fact that now you need to find a different way to grow rich as the universe will no longer help you to win the lottery. I hear you ask the question; "so how do I think correctly?" The answer is that you must desire, and then use words to convince your subconscious to ask for the thing, and then be persistent in your behavior. The whole of the matter can be found in the book "Think and Grow Rich" and you can find that by looking for the link that comes with this article. (Hint; look for the words "think get rich")
So to sum up this article, using the book "Think and Grow Rich" we will finish with a bit of an admonition. Donít be a skeptic about this, just do it. Skepticism is a characteristic of all humans, but if you follow the instructions with faith, soon your skepticism will be replaced with belief as you prove repeatedly that you can do and be whatever you desire. That you can, you can. Remember the famous words "I am the master of my fate, I am the captain of my soul"
