The Secret To Money

 The Secret To Money

"Whatever the mind .. . can conceive it can achieve."
                                       W. Clement Stone 


The Secret was a real transformation for me, because I grew
 up with a very negative father who thought that rich people
 were people that had ripped everyone off and thought that 
anyone that had money must have deceived somebody. So I
 grew up with a lot of beliefs about money; that if you had it, 
it made you bad, only evil people have money, and money
 doesn't grow on trees. "Who do you think I am, Rockefeller?' 
That was one of his favorite phrases. So I grew up truly
 believing that life was difficult. It was only when I met W. 
Clement Stone that I began to shift my life.

                                                                                The Secret to Money 96
When I was working with Stone he said, "I want you to set a
 goal that's so big that if you achieved it, it would blow your
 mind, and you would knew it's only because of what I've
 taught you that you would have achieved this goal" At the 
time I was making about eight thousand dollars a year, so I
 said, "I want to make a hundred thousand dollars in a year."
 Now, I had no idea how I could do that. I saw no strategy,
 no possibility, but I just said, "I'm going to declare that, I'm
 going to believe it, I'm going to act as if it's true, and release 
it" So I did that. 

One of the things he taught me was every day to close your 
eyes and visualize the goals as if it's already achieved. I had
 actually made a hundred-thousand-dollar bill that I'd put on 
the ceiling. So first thing in the morning I'd look up and there
 it was, and it would remind me that this was my intention. 
Then I would close my eyes and visualize having this hundred-
thousand-dollar-a-year lifestyle. Interestingly enough, nothing
 major happened for about thirty days. I didn't have any great 
breakthrough ideas, no one was offering me more money. 

About four weeks into it, I had a hundred-thousand-dollar 
idea. It just came right into my head. I had a book I had 
written, and I said, "If I can sell four hundred thousand 
copies of my book at a quarter each, that'd be a hundred
 thousand dollars." Now, the book was there, but I never had 
this thought. (One of The Secrets is that when you have an
 inspired thought, you have to trust it and act on it.) I didn't
 know how I was going to sell four hundred thousand copies. 

                                                                                               The Secret to Money 97
 Then I saw the National Enquirer at the supermarket. I had 
seen that millions of times and it was just background. And 
all of a sudden it jumped out at me as foreground. I thought, 
"If readers knew about my book, certainly four hundred
 thousand people would go out and buy it." 

About six weeks later I gave a talk at Hunter College in 
New York to six hundred teachers, and afterward a woman 
approached me and said, "That was a great talk. I want to
 interview you. Let me give you my card." As it turns out, she 
was a freelance writer who sold her stories to the National
 Enquirer. The theme from "The Twilight Zone" went off in
 my head, like, whoah, this stuff's really working. That article
 came out and our book sales started to take off. 

The point I want to make is that I was attracting into my life 
all these different events, including this person. To make a
 long story short, I did not make a hundred thousand dollars
 that year. We made ninety-two thousand three hundred and
 twenty-seven dollars. But do you think we were depressed and
 saying, "This doesn't work"? No, we were saying, "This is 
amazing!" So my wife said to me, "If it works for a hundred
 thousand, do you think it'd work for a million ?" And I said, 
"I don't know, I think so. Let's try it." 

My publisher wrote me a royalty check for our first Chicken
 Soup for the Soul book. And he actually put a smiley face in
 his signature, because it was the first million-dollar check he'd 
ever written. 

                                                          The Secret to Money 98
 So I know from my own experience, became I wanted to test it
 Does this Secret really work? We put it to the test. It absolutely 
worked, and now I live my life from that every single day. 

The knowledge of The Secret and the intentional use of the law of 
attraction can be applied to every single subject in your life. It is the
 same process for everything you want to create, and the subject of
 money is no different. 

To attract money, you must focus on wealth. It is impossible to
 bring more money into your life when you are noticing you do not 
have enough, because that means you are thinking thoughts that 
you do not have enough. Focus on not enough money, and you will
 create untold more circumstances of not having enough money. 
You must focus on the abundance of money to bring that to you. 

You have to emit a new signal with your thoughts, and those
 thoughts should be that you currently have more than enough. You
 really do need to call your imagination into play and make believe 
you already have the money you want. And it is so much fun to do!
 You will notice as you pretend and play games of having wealth 
that you feel instantly better about money, and as you feel better 
about it, it will begin to flow into your life.

 Jack's wonderful story inspired The Secret Team to create a blank
 check available as a free download on The Secret website, www The blank check is for you, and it is from the Bank of
 the Universe. You fill in your name, the amount, and details, and
 place it in a prominent place where you will see it every day. When 

                                                           The Secret to Money 99
you look at the check, feel the feelings of having that money now.
 Imagine spending that money, all the things you will buy and the 
things you will do. Feel how wonderful that is! Know it is yours, 
because when you ask, it is. We have received hundreds of stories
 from people who have brought huge sums of money to them using 
The Secret check. It's a fun game that works!

Attract Abundance

The only reason any person does not have enough money is be-
cause they are blocking money from coming to them with their 
thoughts. Every negative thought, feeling, or emotion is blocking 
your good from coming to you, and that includes money. It is not
 that the money is being kept from you by the Universe, because all 
the money you require exists right now in the invisible. If you do 
not have enough, it is because you are stopping the flow of money 
coming to you, and you are doing that with your thoughts. You
 must tip the balance of your thoughts from lack-of-money to more
-than-enough-money. Think more thoughts of abundance than of 
lack, and you have tipped the balance.

 When you need money, it is a powerful feeling within you, and so 
of course through the law of attraction you will continue to attract 
needing money.

 I can speak from experience about money, because just before I
 discovered The Secret my accountants told me that my company

                                                                                     The Secret to Money 100
had suffered a major loss that year, and in three months it would 
be history. After ten years of hard work, my company was about to 
slip through my fingers. And as I needed more money to save my
 company, things just got worse. There seemed no way out. 

Then I discovered The Secret, and everything in my life—includ-
ing the state of my company—was totally transformed, because I 
changed the way I was thinking. As my accountants continued to
 fuss about the figures and focus on that, I kept my mind focused on
 abundance and all being well. I knew with every fiber of my being 
that the Universe would provide, and it did. It provided in ways I 
could not have imagined. I had my moments of doubt, but when 
the doubt came I immediately moved my thoughts to the outcome
 of what I wanted. I gave thanks for it, I felt the joy of it, and I be-

 I want to let you in on a secret to The Secret. The shortcut to any-
thing you want in your life is to BE and FEEL happy now! It is the 
fastest way to bring money and anything else you want into your 
life. Focus on radiating out into the Universe those feelings of joy 
and happiness. When you do that, you will attract back to you all
 things that bring you joy and happiness, which will not only in-
clude an abundance of money, but everything else you are want-
ing. You must radiate out the signal to bring back what you want. 
As you radiate out those feelings of happiness, they will be sent
 back to you as the pictures and experiences of your life. The law of
 attraction is reflecting back your innermost thoughts and feelings
 as your life. 

                                                                                       The Secret to Money 101

Focus On Prosperity


/ can imagine what a lot of people are thinking: "How can I 
attract more money into my life? How can I get more of the
 green stuff? How can I get more of wealth and prosperity?
 How can I, when I love my job, deal with the credit card debt
 that I have, and the realization that maybe there's a ceiling on
 the money that can come in, cause it's coming to me through 
my job? How can I bring in more?" Intend it!

 This goes back to one of the things we've been talking about
 throughout the whole Secret. Your job is to declare what
 you would like to have from the catalogue of the Universe. If 
cash is one of them, say how much you would like to have. "I 
would like to have twenty-five thousand dollars, unexpected
 income, within the next thirty days," or whatever it happens
 to be. It should be believable for you. 

If you have held thoughts in the past that the only way money can
 come to you is through your job, then let that go immediately. Can 
you appreciate that as you continue to think that, it must be your
 experience? Such thoughts do not serve you.

 You are now coming to understand that there is abundance for 
you, and it is not your job to work out "how" the money will come
 to you. It is your job to ask, to believe you are receiving, and feel

                                                                                    The Secret to Money 102
happy now. Leave the details to the Universe on how it will bring
 it about.


Most people have a goal of getting out of debt. That will keep
 you in debt forever. Whatever you're thinking about, you will 
attract. You say, "But it's get out of debt." I don't care if it's 
get out or get in, if you're thinking debt, you're attracting 
debt. Set up an automatic debt repayment program and then
 start to focus on prosperity.

 When you have a pile of bills that you have no idea how you are
 going to pay you cannot focus on those bills, because you will con-
tinue to attract more bills. You have to find a way that works for 
you to focus on prosperity despite the bills around you. You have to
 find a way of feeling good, so you can bring your good to you.


So many times people say to me, "I'd like to double my
 income in the next year." But then you look at their
 actions and they're not doing the things that are going to
 make that happen. They'll turn right around and they'll
 say, "I can't afford that." Guess what? "Your wish is my

 If the words "I can't afford it" have passed your lips/ your power 
to change that is now. Change it with, "I can afford that! I can buy 
that!" Say it over and over. Become like a parrot. For the next

                                                                                    The Secret to Money 103
 thirty days, make it your intention that you are going to look at
 everything you like and say to yourself, "I can afford that. I can
 buy that." As you see your dream car drive past, say, "I can af-
ford that." As you see clothes you love, as you think about a great 
vacation, say, "I can afford that." As you do this you will begin to 
shift yourself and you will begin to feel better about money. You
 will begin to convince yourself that you can afford those things, 
and as you do, the pictures of your life will change. 


When you focus on lack and scarcity and what you don't 
have, you fuss about it with your family, you discuss it with
 your friends, you tell your children that you don't have 
enough —"'We don't have enough for that, we can't afford
 that"—then you'll never be able to afford it, because you
 begin to attract more of what you don't have. If you want
 abundance, if you want prosperity, then focus on abundance. 
Focus on prosperity.

 "The spiritual substance from which comes all
 visible wealth is never depleted. It is right with 
you all the time and responds to your faith in it
 and your demands on it." 
                    Charles Filmore(1854- 1948)

Now that you know The Secret, when you see someone who is 
wealthy you will know that that person's predominant thoughts 

                                                                                     The Secret to Money 104
 are on wealth and not on scarcity, and that they have drawn wealth
 to them—whether they did it consciously or unconsciously. They 
focused on thoughts of wealth and the Universe moved people, 
circumstances, and events to deliver wealth to them. 

The wealth that they have, you have also. The only difference be-
tween you and them is that they thought the thoughts to bring the 
wealth to them. Your wealth is waiting for you in the invisible, and
 to bring it into the visible, think wealth!


When I first understood The Secret, every day I would get 
a bunch of bills in the mail I thought, "How do I turn this
 around?" The law of attraction states that what you focus
 on you will get, so I got a bank statement, I whited out the
 total, and I put a new total in there. I put exactly how much 
I wanted to see in the bank. So I thought, "What if I just 
visualized checks coming in the mail?" So I just visualized a
 bunch of checks coming in the mail Within just one month, 
things started to change. It is amazing; today I just get 
checks in the mail. I get a few bills, but I get more checks 
than bills.

 Since the film The Secret was released, we have received hundreds 
and hundreds of letters from people who have said that since 
watching the film they have received unexpected checks in the
 mail. And it happened because as they gave their focus and atten-
tion to David's story, they brought checks to them.

                                                                                     The Secret to Money 105
 A game I created that helped shift my feelings about my pile of
 bills was to pretend that the bills were actually checks. I would 
jump for joy as I opened them and say, "More money for me! 
Thank you. Thank you." I took each bill, imagined it was a check,
 and then I added a zero to it in my mind to make it even more. I 
got a notepad and wrote at the top of the page "I have received,"
 and then I would list all the amounts of the bills with an added 
zero. Next to each amount I would write "Thank you," and feel
 the feelings of gratitude for receiving it—to the point where I had 
tears in my eyes. Then I would take each bill, which looked very
 small compared to what I had received, and I would pay it with 

 I never opened my bills until I had got myself into the feeling 
that they were checks, if I opened my bills before convincing 
myself they were checks, my stomach would churn when I
 opened them. I knew that the emotion of the churning in my 
stomach was powerfully bringing more bills. I knew I had to
 erase that feeling, and replace it with joyful feelings, so I could
 bring more money into my life. In the face of a pile of bills, that 
game worked for me, and it changed my life. There are so many
 games you can create, and you will know what works best for
 you by the way you feel inside. When you make-believe, the
 results come fast!

                                                                                     The Secret to Money 106


I grew up on, "You have to work hard for money." 
So I replaced that with, "Money comes easily and 
frequently." Now in the beginning it feels like a lie, right?
 There is a part of your brain that will say, "Oh you liar, it's 
hard." So you have to know it's this little tennis match that 
will go on for a while.

 If you have had thoughts of, "I have to work really hard and 
struggle to have money," let them go immediately. By thinking
 those thoughts you emitted that frequency, and they became the
 pictures of your life experience. Take Loral Langemeier's advice, 
and replace those thoughts with, "Money comes easily and fre-


When it comes to creating wealth, wealth is a mindset. It's all 
about how you think. 


I'd say 80 percent of the coaching that I do with folks is 
about their psychology and the way they think. I know
 when people say, "Oh, you can do it, I can't." People
 have the capability to change their inner relationship and
 conversation with money.

                                                                                    The Secret to Money 107
 "The good news is that the moment you
 decide that what you know is more important 
than what you have been taught to believe, 
you will have shifted gears in your quest for
 abundance. Success comes from within, not
 from without." 
              Ralph Waldo Emerson(1803-1882)

You have got to feel good about money to attract more to you. Un-
derstandably when people do not have enough money they do not 
feel good about money, because they don't have enough. But those
 negative feelings about money are stopping more money coming
 to you! You have got to stop the cycle, and you stop it by starting to 
feel good about money, and being grateful for what you have. Start
 to say and feet, "I have more than enough." "There is an abundance 
of money and it's on its way to me." "I am a money magnet." "I 
love money and money loves me." "I am receiving money every
 day." "Thank you. Thank you. Thank you/'

Give Money to Get Money 

 Giving is a powerful action to bring more money into your life,
 because when you are giving you are saying, "I have plenty." It 
will not be surprising to you to learn that the wealthiest people on
 the planet are the greatest philanthropists. They give away vast 

                                                                                    The Secret to Money 108
 amounts of money, and as they give, by the law of attraction, the
 Universe opens up and floods vast amounts of money back to them 

 If you are thinking, "I don't have enough money to give," bingo! 
Now you know why you don't have enough money! When you
 think you don't have enough to give, start giving. As you demon-
strate faith in giving, the law of attraction must give you more to 

 There is a big difference between giving and sacrificing. Giving
 from a heart that is overflowing feels so good. Sacrificing does not
 feel good. Don't confuse the two—they are diametrically opposed. 
One emits a signal of lack and the other emits a signal of more-
than-enough. One feels good and one does not feel good. Sacrifice 
will eventually lead to resentment. Giving from a full heart is one
 of the most joyous things you can do, and the law of attraction will 
grab hold of that signal and flood even more into your life. You can
 feet the difference.

 I find so many people who make a tremendous amount of 
money, but their relationships stink. And that's not wealth.
 You can go after the money and you might get rich, but it
 doesn't guarantee you'll be wealthy. I'm not suggesting that
 money isn't a part of wealth, it absolutely is. But it's only a 

                                                                                   The Secret to Money 109
 And then I meet a lot of people who are "spiritual" but
 they're sick and broke all the time. That's not wealth either. 
Life is meant to be abundant—in all areas.

 If you have been brought up to believe that being wealthy is not 
spiritual, then I highly recommend you read The Millionaires of 
the Bible Series by Catherine Ponder. In these glorious books you
 will discover that Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Joseph, Moses, and Jesus
 were not only prosperity teachers, but also millionaires them-
selves, with more affluent lifestyles than many present-day mil-
lionaires could conceive of. 

You are the heir to the kingdom. Prosperity is your birthright, and
 you hold the key to more abundance—in every area of your life—
 than you can possibly imagine. You deserve every good thing you 
want, and the Universe will give you every good thing you want, 
but you have to summon it into your life. Now you know The
 Secret. You have the key. The key is your thoughts and feelings, 
and you have been holding the key in your hand all of your life. 


Many people in Western culture are striving for success. They
 want the great home, they want their businesses to work, 
they want all these outer things. But what we found in our 
research is that having these outer things does not necessarily 
guarantee what we really want, which is happiness. So we 
go for these outer things thinking they're going to bring us

                                                                                   The Secret to Money 110
 happiness, but it's backward. You need to go for the inner joy, 
the inner peace, the inner vision first, and then all of the outer
 things appear. 

Everything you want is an inside job! The outside world is the 
world of effects; if s just the result of thoughts. Set your thoughts 
and frequency on happiness. Radiate the feelings of happiness and
 joy within you, and transmit that into the Universe with all of your
 might, and you will experience true heaven on earth.
