Day 17 – Tasha Chen’s Science of Getting Rich Academy
“There is a thinking substance from which all things are made, and which, in its original state, permeates, penetrates and fills the interspaces of the universe.
“A thought, in this substance, produces the thing that is imaged by the thought.
“A person can form things in his thought and by impressing his thought upon formless substance, can cause the thing he thinks about to be created.
“In order to do this, a person must pass from the competitive to the creative mind; otherwise, he cannot be in harmony with the Formless Intelligence, which is always creative and never competitive in spirit.
“A person may come into full harmony with the Formless Substance by entertaining a lively and sincere gratitude for the blessings it bestows upon him. Gratitude unifies the mind of a person with the intelligence of Substance, so that a person’s thoughts are received by the Formless. A person can remain on the creative plane only by uniting himself with the Formless Intelligence through a deep and continuous feeling of gratitude.”

Day 16 – Tasha Chen’s Science of Getting Rich Academy
“For the present, however, it is enough to know that neither the government under which you live, nor the capitalistic or competitive system of industry can keep you from getting rich. When you enter upon the creative plane of thought you will rise above all these things and become a citizen of another kingdom.
“But remember that your thought must be held upon the creative plane; you are never for an instant to be betrayed into regarding the supply as limited, or into acting on the moral level of competition.
“Whenever you do fall into old ways of thought, correct yourself instantly; for when you are in the competitive mind, you have lost the cooperation of the Mind of the Whole.”

Day 14 – Tasha Chen’s Science of Getting Rich Academy
Chapter 14 discusses the impression of increase and offers a reminder that even if you plan to change your vocation, all of your present action must revolve around the business you are currently in. The message of “bloom where you’re planted” does not mean you have to remain in an unfulfilling job or position — just the opposite. By applying the principle of living in the Certain Way NOW, you set yourself up for advancement and expansion into a new line of work you desire, when you give others the impression of increase.
And in so far as your business consists in dealing with other men, whether personally or by letter, the key-thought of all your efforts must be to convey to their minds the impression of increase.
Increase is what all men and women are seeking; it is the urge of the Formless Intelligence within them, seeking fuller expression.
The desire for increase is inherent in all nature; it is the fundamental impulse of the Universe. All human activities are based on the desire for increase; people are seeking more food, more clothes, better shelter. more luxury, more beauty, more knowledge, more pleasure — increase in something, more life.
Every living thing is under the necessity for continuous advancement; where increase of life ceases, dissolution and death set in at once.
A person instinctively knows this, and hence he is forever seeking more. This law of perpetual increase is set forth by Jesus in the parable of the talents; only those who gain more retain any; from him who hath not shall be taken away even that which he hath.
The normal desire for increased wealth is not an evil or reprehensible thing; it is simply the desire for more abundant life; it is an aspiration.

Day 10 – Tasha Chen’s Science of Getting Rich Academy
You cannot retain a true and clear vision of wealth if you are constantly turning your attention to opposing pictures, whether they be external or imaginary.
Do not tell of your past troubles of a financial nature; if you have had them, do not think of them at all. Do not tell anyone of the poverty of your parents, or the hardships of your early life. To do any of these things is to mentally class yourself with the poor for the time being, and it will certainly check the movement of things in your direction.
“Let the dead bury their dead,” as Jesus said.
Put poverty and all things that pertain to poverty completely behind you.
Think of the riches the world is coming into, instead of the poverty it is growing out of; and bear in mind that the only way in which you can assist the world in growing rich is by growing rich yourself through the creative method — not the competitive one.
Give your attention wholly to riches; ignore poverty.
Emphasis mine because this was a key point for me from the time I started this program with Tasha.
When you understand that the Universal supply is limitless, that there is more than enough for everybody, it removes all guilt about “taking” from someone else. On the creative plane, there is no such thing as competition, because you are causing what you want to be created — not attempting to steal a creation from someone else. The creative plane offers equal opportunity for all, regardless of race, background, health, social status or any other factor.
Any individual who makes the effort to learn and apply these principles will succeed. And not only that, they will inspire and encourage the people around them to do the same.
As Wattles says, “The very best thing you can do for the whole world is to make the most of yourself. You can serve God and man in no more effective way than by getting rich; that is, if you get rich by the creative method and not by the competitive one.”
What a freeing concept.
Still, this system requires focused concentration and the avoidance of all conflicting ideas, if you are to succeed. In today’s world, I can’t think of anything more valuable than proving the validity of living in the Certain Way and showing others how they can too. Everyone could then release all thoughts of victim-hood, take control of their thinking and behavior, live their dreams, and teach others how to follow their example.
