Does this sound too good to be true? It's not. The first step to success is to decide that you want it and that you'll do whatever it takes to get it. Many people say they want success, but in reality, they don't want the responsibility that accompanies it. When you've made your decision that it is worth it, you must give deliberate, bold, conscious attention to your prosperity. The following are steps that you can take immediately which will produce quick results.

• When you open your mind to happiness and prosperity, you open your mind to a world of possibilities. You must know WHAT you want. You don't really know what you want unless you can WRITE IT with specific dates, description, and dollar amounts. Write it in handwriting and in the present tense. State it as if your goal were already being accomplished-"I am….." Keep your goal statement handy so that you can read it and rewrite it frequently.

• Next, CREATE A VACUUM in the area that you are attempting to enrich. Nature abhors a vacuum and when you create one it will supply what you desire to fill the empty space. You can create a vacuum by cleaning out the old to make room for the new. Clean closets, drawers, garages, files, cars, and everything in your life. You become stagnant, stale, and prevent movement toward desired changes when old unneeded things remain in your life. If you want to have success on a shopping trip for clothes, clean out your closet first. My friend took my advice recently and before she could go shopping she was given an incredible, practically new wardrobe by someone who no longer fit into her size. She created a vacuum and it was filled!

• Express a prosperous attitude by SPEAKING OUTLOUD. Express prosperous attitudes by speaking to yourself and others in conversations several times a day in a positive way that you expect success. You cannot expect to get the goals you've written if you tell an opposite story or express doubt to your friends.

• IMAGINE WITH FEELING the things you desire. Imagination creates your world! You are the sum total of your dominant thoughts. Thoughts are habits in our mind that become our reality. Think conscious thoughts about your goals. Imagine them with feeling. Your subconscious mind, which is being programmed by your imagination, cannot tell the difference between something real and something imagined with feeling. The best time to imagine is before you sleep at night when your mind is like fertile soil and the seeds of imagination you have just planted in it begin to grow.

• CREATE A VISION BOARD with pictures and words that specifically represent your desires. Your mind thinks in pictures and putting specific pictures and words representing the things you desire on a poster board and placing it where you will see it all the time, is another way to reprogram your subconscious mind. Make sure you put a picture of you in the center, a picture that represents your source, real or fake money and even some affirmations. Make it colorful and exciting so your journey will be colorful and exciting. What you see is what you get! Your subconscious mind does not take a joke. It is impartial. It takes directions. Use a Vision Board to give it specific instructions.

You will move closer to your goals the minute you begin to take the actions I have suggested. When you do, you will be using the Law of Attraction in a positive way to attract your desires to you. The word ‘Attraction’ has the word ‘Action’ inside of it. A lot of people think that Attitude is Everything. Wrong! The other ‘A’ Words is just as important. That word is ACTION. You can have the best attitude in the world, but if you do not take action you will not move forward and create the success you want in your life.

Recently a woman told me, “Oh, I know all about the Law of Attraction. It’s really great!” What isn’t so great is that she was on the verge of a divorce, her business was close to shutting its doors, and she was very unhappy. This woman was making a common mistake. She knew about the Law of Attraction so she thought that was all that was necessary. Knowledge is not power. Implementation of knowledge is power. You must take action! Conditions in your life can change as quickly as you get into action!
