We have passed from a world based on material limitations into a world that is determined by mental concepts. We have moved from the age of things into the “Psychozoic Age”, the age of the mind. Wealth and opportunities are contained more in the person you are and the way you think than in the assets you have acquired in life so far. Your future lies more in your ability to apply your mind and intelligence to your work and your life than it does in your current job or situation.
To achieve something you’ve never achieved before, you will have to think in ways you have never thought before.
Throughout your life, you must constantly thinking about all the things you can do, in every area, to increase the probabilities that you will be successful in achieving your goals. You should leave nothing to chance. You should refuse to wish or hope, or trust to luck. You must take control of your situation. You are responsible.
First. Fix in your mind the exact amount of money you desire. It is not sufficient merely to say “I want plenty of money”. Be definite as to the amount.
Second. Determine exactly what you intend to give in return for the money you desire. (There is not such reality as something for nothing)
Third. Establish a definite date when you intend to possess the money you desire.
Fourth. Create a definite plan for carrying out your desire, and begin at once, whether you are ready or not, to put this plan into action.
Fifth. Write out a clear, concise statement of the amount of money you intend to acquire, name the time limit for its acquisition, state what you intend to give in return for the money, and describe clearly the plan though which you intend to accumulate it.
Sixth. Read your written statement aloud, twice daily, once just before retiring at night, and once after arising in the morning. AS YOU READ – SEE AND FEEL AND BELIEVE YOURSELF ALREADY IN POSSESSION OF THE MONEY.

For example, if your monthly expenses are $5,000 a month and you have $20,000 in savings, your wealth is approximately four month or 120 days. Wealth is measured in time, not dollars.
Ultimately, it’s not how much money you make that matters, but how much money you keep, and how long that money works for you. Every day I meet many people who make a lot of money, but all of their money goes out the expense columns.
Every time they make a little more money, they go shopping. They often buy a bigger house or a new car which result in long-term debt and more hard work. Nothing is left to go into the asset column.
Many people, rich and poor, operate constantly at the financial red line of their personal finances.
The trouble with operating your car’s engine at red line is that the life expectancy of the engine is shortened. The same is true with operating your finances at the red line.
