Chapter 9 PERSISTENCE: THE SUSTAINED EFFORT NECESSARY TO INDUCE FAITH
Fortunes gravitate to men whose minds have been prepared to “attract” them, just as surely
as water gravitates to the ocean. In this book may be found all the stimuli necessary to “attune”
any normal mind to the vibrations which will attract the object of one’s desires.
If you find you are weak in PERSISTENCE, center your attention upon the instructions contained
in the chapter on “Power”; surround yourself with a “MASTER MIND” group, and through the
cooperative efforts of the members of this group, you can develop persistence. You will find
additional instructions for the development of persistence in the chapters on autosuggestion,
and the subconscious mind. Follow the instructions outlined in these chapters until your habit
nature hands over to your subconscious mind, a clear picture of the object of your DESIRE.
From that point on, you will not be handicapped by lack of persistence.
Your subconscious mind works continuously, while you are awake, and while you are asleep.
Spasmodic, or occasional effort to apply the rules will be of no value to you. To get RESULTS,
you must apply all of the rules until their application becomes a fixed habit with you. In no
other way can you develop the necessary “money consciousness.”
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.
