Should I think what instead of how

In doing my ½ hour daily exercise from The Master Key System by Charles, F. Haanel I saw a pattern in my thinking. The exercise asked me to just sit down for ½ hour and let the thoughts go anyway they want.

Now I combine this with words from this book:Your Invisible Power
which say: "All you have to do is to make ... a mental picture of your heart's desire, hold it cheerfully in place with your will, always conscious that the same Infinite Power which brought the universe into existence brought you into form for the purpose of enjoying itself in and through you".

I see that I have concentrated much of my energy on thinking 'How ' I'll get a thing (done) and not much on 'what' I actually want. So I'll try to switch on this and actually just think of, what it is that I want, elaborate on this in my thoughts.

This is quite fun also :-)

Unconscious decisions - Planning to be poor and dead

In reading the book Rich Dad, Poor Dad: What the Rich Teach Their Kids About Money--That the Poor and Middle Class Do Not! and listening to the tapes that comes with the CASHFLOW 101 game I became aware of a 'funny' idea that must admit that I also subscribed to:

"I'll work to I'm 65, then I'll go down in salary as I am no longer working, and then I'll live off my own savings and government pension"

The thing that is wrong in this statement is that I have the idea that I'll get at lower income when I get 65. This is unconsiously planning to be poor!

I really hadn't thought of it that way.

So now I'm going through the book: The Master Key System by Charles, F. Haanel for the second time and it struck me that mabe I have another similar unconscious reality about my own mental state:

"I have my mental abilities and can improve on them, and when my body gets older, these abilities gets worse and worse and at body death, my mental abilities will be lost and my memory will be zero!"

My god! Is that planning to get worse! It certainly is and it filled me with a nice warm feeling of hope and joy to have discovered this.
