Whether you learn from such legendary marketing and business experts such as Dan Kennedy or the more modern solo-preneurs, all of them agree with the idea that your business, income and wealth all begin with a certain mindset. Over the years I have never heard a better explanation than the one Raymond Holliwell gave in his book, Working with the Law.
Holliwell pointed out:
“If you are not succeeding, if you lack any good thing, look more closely to the cause. It is not outside; it is somewhere within.”
Notice where you fail to use the Law correctly to think rightly. There are 3 points in everyday life where one may fall into a snare & delusion:
Do you expect something for nothing?
Does it make you feel good or please you when you get something without paying for it? If so, you are violating the Law. Your returns will always be unsatisfactory. No matter where you go be willing to pay your own way.
Have you known some person who hangs back when you go out for an evening's entertainment? They stand back and let the other fellow pay for the show. People like that lose hundreds of dollars when they try to save themselves a few bucks. The quality of thought they entertain REPELS many dollars they could attract. If you knowingly cheat another one of a dollar, it may cost you many dollars for the mistake.
Do you hunt for things that are called cheap?
Are you are bargain hunter? Cheap thoughts can only bring cheap returns. Those who wait for bargain days will always have to take bargains, but remember – there are no bargains in life. If you have gained monetarily, you may have lost in other ways.
You place yourself in a vibration that lowers your present state. It forces you below your proper level. It limits your thought to a state where you support underselling, cutting, bankruptcy and dishonesty on the part of the seller. He must deceive, cheat or lie about the price of the bargain (or some other article), because he is in business to make a fair profit. You become a party to the violation and come under its penalty.
Do you begrudge spending money?
Do you hate to pay your bills? Release your money cheerfully, even if it be that last dollar you have. Decide what your need is & if it is of greater value than the dollar in your hand, then spend the dollar cheerfully. In this way, you comply with a law.
Oftentimes, we get to a low level and we begin to tighten our purse strings.
We begin to hold back. This is like closing the faucet! It limits the supply from pouring in to you. The Law inevitably produces its own exactness as a rule of action. It's a Divine Law and tolerates no violation.
