81 Every human being who reaches the age of understanding of the purpose of
82 money, wishes for it. Wishing will not bring riches. But desiring riches with a
83 state of mind that becomes an obsession, then planning definite ways and means
84 to acquire riches, and backing those plans with persistence which does not
85 recognize failure, will bring riches.
86 The method by which DESIRE for riches can be transmuted into its financial
87 equivalent, consists of six definite, practical steps:
88 Fix in your mind the exact amount of money you desire. It is not sufficient

94 Third. Establish a definite date when you intend to possess the money you

96 Fourth. Create a definite plan for carrying out your desire, and begin at once,
97 whether you are ready or not, to put this plan into action.
98 Fifth. Write out a clear, concise statement of the amount of money you intend to
99 acquire, name the time limit for its acquisition, state what you intend to give in
100 return for the money, and describe clearly the plan through which you intend to
101 accumulate it.
102 Sixth. Read your written statement aloud, twice daily, once just before retiring at
103 night, and once after arising in the morning. AS YOU READ, SEE AND FEEL
105 MONEY .
106 It is important that you follow the instructions described in these six steps. It is
107 especially important that you observe, and follow the instructions in the sixth
