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.”
Listen to Tasha’s full reading of Chapter 16 below.

“Every man and woman who follows these instructions steadily, perseveringly and to the letter, will get rich. The Law of the Increase of Life is as mathematically certain in its operation as the Law of Gravity. The Science of Getting Rich is an exact science.”
Day 11 – Tasha Chen’s Science of Getting Rich Academy
In this chapter, Wattles clarifies the necessity of taking action, and not relying on thought alone. As he mentioned in an earlier chapter, thought is the first step (and a critical one), but alone it is not enough.
Thought is the CREATIVE POWER or the impelling force which causes the creative power to act; thinking in a Certain Way will bring riches to you, but you must not rely upon thought alone, paying no attention to personal action. That is the rock upon which many otherwise scientific metaphysical thinkers meet shipwreck — the failure to connect thought with personal action.
Your thought makes all things, animate and inanimate, work to bring you what you want; but your personal activity must be such that you can rightly receive what you want when it reaches you. You are not to take it as charity,nor to steal it; you must give every man more in use value than he gives you in cash value.
It is not your part to guide or supervise the creative process; all you have to do with that is to retain your vision, stick to your purpose, and maintain your faith and gratitude.
But you must act in a Certain Way, so that you can appropriate what is yours when it comes to you; so that you can meet the things you have in your picture and put them in their proper places when they arrive.
By thought, the thing you want is brought to you; by action, you receive it.
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.
