Wishing will not bring riches. But desiring riches with a state of mind that
becomes an obsession, then planning definite ways and means to acquire
riches, and backing those plans with persistence which does not recognize
failure, will bring riches.
Power of Passion
The method by which
for riches can be transmuted into its financial equivalent, consists of six
definite, practical steps:
1. Exact amount.
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. (There
is a psychological reason for definiteness which will be described in a

desire. (There is no such reality as “something for nothing.)

are ready or not, to put this plan into
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 through which
you intend to accumulate it.
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.
COCA Principle of Achievement
It is important that
you follow the instructions described in these six steps. It is especially
important that you observe, and follow the instructions in the sixth
paragraph. You may complain that it is impossible for you to “see yourself
in possession of money” before you actually have it. Here is where a
DESIRE will come to your aid. If you truly DESIRE money so keenly that your
desire is an obsession, you will have no difficulty in convincing yourself
that you will acquire it. The object is to want money, and to become so
determined to have it that you CONVINCE yourself you will have it.
