Finally I ran out of those, and in the interim I reluctantly felt I should give this book one more try... I'm SO GLAD I DID! It turns out this book was written in 1910 (woulda helped me had I checked the copyright to begin with-explains the language anyway) OUT OF ALL THE LAW OF ATTRACTION AND SUCCESS BOOKS I'VE READ SO FAR, THIS BOOK IS THE BEST, AND THE ONLY ONE I CARRY EVERYWHERE AND REFER TO DAILY. ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL. Mind you this was written BEFORE the term "Law of Attraction" was thrown about with regularity. It's fabulous, and gives a concise and clear modus operandi to achieve your dream life, even if your present situation really sucks. Wallace Wattles reminds us that it is a Certain Way of thinking, and living, that produces with certainty the life we create. I will absolutely buy this for everyone I care about.
There is a part in this book, right at beginning of it, describing the book:
This book is pragmatical, not philosophical; a practical manual, not a treatise upon theories. It is intended for the men and women whose most pressing need is for money; who wish to get rich first, and philosophize afterword.
It is for those who have, so far, find neither the time, the means, nor the opportunity, to go deeply into the study of metaphysics, but who want results and who are willing to take the conclusions of science as a basis for action, without going into all the processes by which those conclusions were reached.

This book can be described easily as:
Use your power of thought to think the ways you can make more money with knowledge that you already possess; but don’t stop with just thinking and planning, you need to take the action, because you’ll achieve nothing if you don’t work on getting your plans and thoughts into reality.

Every thought you have is derived from an impression of the outside world. When you SEE HEAR SMELL TOUCH or TATSE something it INVOKES a thought. In other words, we are being controlled (really we are programmed) by the outside world. What we must start to do is live from the INSIDE OUT. Give control to you, and the outside will then be a reflection of the INSIDE.
These impressions create our THOUGHTS and our THOUGHTS determine how we FEEL. Therefore THINKING and FEELING as a combination is the secret ingredient to IMPRESSING your mind. Our Minds are easily IMPRESSED because we REACT (triggers emotions) to situations and people that make us FEEL bad (thought was just impressed), which leads to negativity and negativity repels money. You have to be on the right frequency to attract money. How..
Gratitude is the seed for more. Whatever you're grateful for you will pull more of that into your life. The power is not in the gratefulness alone but the power really resides in "feeling" grateful. Feeling grateful is sending out positive emotions out into the universe and whatever you are grateful for you align with on a vibrational level.
"When we realize this" as Wattles says, we loose all doubt for we now know how to create what we want to create and have what we want to have and become what we want to become. You have always had control over your life, but you have given control of it to other people and circumstances because you have allowed it to take possession of your mind by your REACTION to life.
Be mindful of your Words, be mindful of the words of others around you because life and death is in the power of the tongue. Words are powerful, because words determine how you feel and you can never "feel" really grateful and positive if you allow others to hurt you with their words because they are at an emotional level hurting your vibration and your vibration is what attracts everything you desire
