POVERTY is attracted to the one whose mind is favorable to it, as money is attracted to him whose mind has been deliberately prepared to attract it, and through the same laws. POVERTY CONSCIOUSNESS WILL VOLUNTARILY SEIZE THE MIND WHICH IS NOT OCCUPIED WITH THE MONEY CONSCIOUSNESS. A poverty consciousness develops without conscious application of habits favorable to it. The money consciousness must be created to order, unless one is born with such a consciousness.

So are we money conscious or poverty conscious?  In order to be money conscious we must program our minds through self talk, but it is not just enough to say "I want money" and expect to see dollar bills  raining from the sky.    

We find time to do our MFF advertising and saying our self - talk  but that is only part of what we should be doing to become money conscious.

The missing piece of our daily activities is found in chapter 2.  We need to go through the 6 steps twice daily.   I have to admit I was not being persistent with chapter 2, and therefore not totally money conscious.

Hill writes  If you are following this book with the intention of applying the knowledge it conveys, your first test as to your PERSISTENCE will come when you begin to follow the six steps described in the second chapter. Unless you are one of the two out of every hundred who already have a DEFINITE GOAL at which you are aiming, and a DEFINITE PLAN for its attainment, you may read the instructions, and then pass on with your daily routine, and never comply with those instructions.

The author is checking you up at this point, because lack of persistence is one of the major causes of failure. Moreover, experience with thousands of people has proved that lack of persistence is a weakness common to the majority of men. It is a weakness which may be overcome by effort.
