In this chapter, Neville takes us into Scripture again to illustrate, through stories, how our wish must ultimately come to pass through simply persisting in maintaining the consciousness and the feeling of the desired state, all we wish to be, do and have, already fulfilled.
Neville writes, “Ask, seek and knock mean assuming the consciousness of already having what you desire.” He continues; “Here, to pray means to give thanks for already having what you desire. Only persistency in the assumption of the wish fulfilled can cause those subtle changes in your mind which result in the desired change in your life; all must respond in harmony with your persistent assumption.”
He closes this chapter with these words: “Your assumption, to be effective, cannot be a single isolated act; it must be a maintained attitude of the wish fulfilled. And that maintained attitude that gets you there, so that you think from your wish fulfilled instead of thinking about your wish, is aided by assuming the feeling of the wish fulfilled frequently. It is the frequency, not the length of time, that makes it natural. That to which you constantly return constitutes your truest self. Frequent occupancy of the feeling of the wish fulfilled is the secret of success.”
I’d like to ask, what would you be doing if you do not persist in maintaining the feeling tone of your wish fulfilled, if you give up? Would you then shift your dominant thoughts to things you don’t want? That is what most people do, and guess what? They persist in those thoughts, they add feelings of despair, doubt, worry and fear and think from that negative state frequently. Then, that is exactly what’s starts showing up in their life.
It works both ways so stay with what you DO want! Persist! You’re worth it! Your dream must be fulfilled through you. Grab a copy of Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill as well and read, everyday, for at least thirty days, Hill’s chapter on persistence!
