Doing Things In "The Certain Way"
What does that mean to you? I initially opened this in book 2006 after watching the movie "The Secret" and finding out the woman (Rhonda Byrne) who created the book and movie started her path of personal growth after discovering Wallace Wattles.
I came to hold this book with close regard, carrying it around often and reading it numerous times every year.
This book was written in 1910 preceding Think and Grow Rich, and to my knowledge the first of its kind.
The book dictates the steps to acquiring wealth through a series of mental and physical concepts with the main one being doing things in the "certain way".
This statement caught my eye immediately and I asked myself, "What is this certain way"? I'll get back to that in a second.
When I am inspired by a thought I quickly move with faith down that path and look confidently for the next sign on the path.
With that being said, I want to talk about another book that brought validity to my paradigm shift on The Science Of Getting Rich.
I changed my perspective on the "certain way" statement, and a few days later I started a new book.
The 2011 released book by Napoleon Hill, "Outwitting The Devil".
If you are into personal growth and success you must acquire this book.
Finish this article first.
Among other things in the Hill text it is said the "drifter" is the biggest and easiest target of the devil.
The drifter is described as the person who works hard not to think, the person who has no definite purpose and shies away from focus in any area.
The space left open by the lack of concentration on improving life is said to be where the devil initially occupies and gains a foothold on that person's life.
It is a great and liberating book.
Okay, so let's tie this all in.
It is easy to initially think that doing things in a "certain way" means and calls upon a method, strategy, or step-by-step process.
That is what I thought for years and it was a concept sufficient enough to bring me some success.
Now I realize it may have been the use of other principles in the book, mainly the filling of space.
This means one may become so big in value to a space that they by natural law have to advance to greater things.
This is accomplished by leaving nothing undone in a situation.
After research and meditation and around 6 years of reading this text, I know realize doing things in a certain way more accurately fits into the whole direction and teachings of wattles by using the following definition Certain>> free from doubt or reservation; confident; sure.
The funny thing is this is the first 4 of 5 meanings of the word however as I searched the Internet for blogs and write-ups on the topic, there are a lot of others that thought what I did about the meaning of certain way.
I believe it may have been a lost in translation since the book is dated to just past the turn of the 20th Century.
Doing things in a "certain way" means to move forward with faith holding in mind without doubt that what you seek to manifest in your life.
The truth is with faith the "size of a mustard seed" you can move mountains.
You can jump on the fast track of reaching your goals.
To do this you need focus, not only to receive your reward but also to avoid drifting into devilish procrastination.
You also need to hold the faith that your thoughts will be manifested in your life in accordance to the faith you hold the space of their physical absence.
