Lesson 3: How to gain what you want

Last Update: February 08, 2017

Hello my Wonderful WA friends; Greetings to you.

Many thanks for reading and commenting on the previous lessons. Your comments were highly valued.


Here is Lesson 3: How to gain what you want

He ignorant person may say, "How can you get anything by merely wanting it? I say that through concentration you can get anything you want. Every desire can be gratified. But whether it is, will depend upon you concentrating to have that desire fulfilled. Merely wishing for something will not bring it. Wishing you had something shows a weakness and not a belief that you will really get it. So never merely wish, as we are not living in a "fairy age." You use up just as much brain force in "vain imaginings" as you do when you think of something worthwhile.

Be careful of your desires, make a mental picture of what you want and set your will to this until it materializes. Never allow yourself to drift without helm or rudder. Know what you want to do, and strive with all your might to do it, and you will succeed.

Feel that you can accomplish anything you undertake. Many undertake to do things, but feel when they start they are going to fail and usually they do. I will give an illustration. A man goes to a store for an article. The clerk says, "I am sorry, we don’t have it." But the man that is determined to get that thing inquires if he doesn't know where he can get it. Again receiving an unsatisfactory answer the determined buyer consults the manager and finally he finds where the article can be bought.

That is the whole secret of concentrating on getting what you want. And, remember, your soul is a center of all-power, and you can accomplish what you will to. "I'll find a way or make one!" is the spirit that wins. I know a man that is now head of a large bank. He started there as a messenger boy.

His father had a button made for him with a "P" on it and put it on his coat. He said, "Son, that 'P' is a reminder that someday you are to be the president of your bank. I want you to keep this thought in your mind. Every day do something that will put you nearer your goal." Each night after supper he would say, "Son, what did you do today?" In this way the thought was always kept in mind. He concentrated on becoming president of that bank, and he did. His father told him never to tell anyone what that "P" stood for.

A good deal of fun was made of it by his associates. And they tried to find out what it stood for, but they never did until he was made president and then he told the secret. Don't waste your mental powers in wishes. Don't dissipate your energies by trying to satisfy every whim. Concentrate on doing something really worthwhile. The man that sticks to something is not the man that fails.

Success today depends largely on concentrating on the Interior law of force, for when you do this you awaken those thought powers or forces, which, when used in business, insures permanent results.

Until you are able to do this you have not reached your limit in the use of your forces. This great universe is interwoven with myriads of forces. You make your own place, and whether it is important depends upon you.

Through the Indestructible and Unconquerable Law you can in time accomplish all right things and therefore do not be afraid to undertake whatever you really desire to accomplish and are willing to pay for in effort.

Anything that is right is possible. That which is necessary will inevitably take place. If something is right it is your duty to do it, though the whole world thinks it to be wrong. "God and one are always a majority," or in plain words, that omnipotent God, and the organism that represents you is able to conquer the whole world if your cause is absolutely just. Don't say I wish I was a great man. You can do anything that is proper and you want to do. Just say: You can. You will. You must. Just realize this and the rest is easy. You have the latent faculties and forces to subdue anything that tries to interfere with your plans.


I’m always very grateful to you, my Wonderful WA friends, for reading and commenting on my blogs.

Yes, Usiba. The story about the man who became president proves that thoughts become actions and shape your destiny. You also quoted one of my Pastor's favorite sayings: "God and you are the majority."

Good thoughts, Usiba! Love the part about not allowing yourself to drift. It's so easy to drift without realizing it.

Usiba I both agree and disagree with you. Whatever one desires must accord to HIS WILL sustained in the Universe, which we commonly called NATURAL LAWS. As the laws are prefect, they automatically fulfil their mission in the universe. Naturally if you flow with them, things do work to your advantage and vice versa. This means in essence if your desire is evil, you will end up suffering instead of being joyous as HIS plan is for everyone.

Hi my dear Lanu, many thanks for your comments. I agree fully with you. While writing the post, the "evil desire" didn't cross my mind. Thank you for reminding me of it.
I really value your comments.
