5 Great Lessons I have learned from Claude Bristol’s book: The Magic of Believing (Part 1)

Published

on

The Magic of Believing is a wonderful book by the late News Editor and Reporter, Claude Bristol (1891 – 1951). You must read the book if you are interested in discovering how to use your thoughts for the creation of a happier and successful life.

I read the book thrice because I had to completely grasp its marvelous, and eye-opening information. I have learned much from the book, and I would like to share 5 main lessons I have discovered from it.

  1. Thought is a Powerful Force

Claude Bristol believes that thought is a powerful force that man possesses because everything around you was once a thought. The chairs, cars and any material thing you see were made after a certain individual thought about them.

In addition, he believes that your life is a product of your thoughts. Therefore, if you want a good life you must practice entertaining positive thoughts.

  1. You Attract Whatever You Constantly Imagine

Claude Bristol writes that you can bring anything into the physical world through powerful imagination because you attract whatever you often imagine. For instance, if you keep imagining about failure, you will fail eventually because your imagination will affect your actions, and make you act like a failure. Therefore, you must constantly think about prosperity if you want to attract prosperity into your life.

  1. Hard work Alone Will Not Bring Success

In the book, Claude Bristol claims that a large percentage of the world’s population has worked very hard without achieving success. Therefore, according to him, hard work is not the only thing that makes one successful.

Claude Bristol believes that hard work is only fruitful if it is accompanied by creative thinking and a strong belief in your power to execute your ideas. He argues that many successful people succeeded mainly because of creativity and faith: hard work was just a helper.

  1. The Power of Desire

Claude Bristol believes that all those who want to achieve great things must have a strong desire because it is impossible to achieve anything without an all-consuming desire. Desire pushes you towards success because it acts as a motivating factor and it also makes you work extremely hard.

  1. You can Achieve Anything if You Believe in the Power of God/Creator/Super-conscious Mind

In the book, Claude Bristol acknowledged the fact that there is a supreme intelligent force which controls the Universe. He writes that there is no limit to what you can achieve if you rely on this power.

Claude Bristol teaches that this power can help you when in trouble, and it can also warn you of incoming danger.  Besides this, Claude Bristol claims that many individuals have used the power to achieve riches, fame, and power.

Lastly, Claude Bristol writes that the power has the ability to arrange things to work in your favor if you believe in it and rely on it to help you in all your affairs.

If you have never read the book, please read it. And if you have read the book, feel free to add other lessons you have learned from it

The Top 5 Amazing Takeaways from Yasmin Mogahed’s book: RECLAIM YOUR HEART

Published

on

Yasmin Mogahed’s book, Reclaim Your Heart, was written to free your heart from slavery and enable you to have a positive perception towards hardships. The book also reveals the importance of placing our hope in God and advises us on how to react when we fall.

Besides this, the book is inspiring and also easy-to-read. I learned several things from the book, and I believe it made me wiser.

Here are 5 remarkable lessons I learned from Yasmin Mogahed’s book.

  1. Pain Warns Us That Something is Wrong

According to Yasmin, pain is a warning that something is wrong and we need to make changes in our lives. For example, heart-breaks tell us that we are too attached to a particular person, and we need to let go of him/her. They force us to make internal changes.

  1. The importance of Hardships

Hardships purify our souls and move us closer to God. They also remind us about the Greatness of God, and how small we are compared to his greatness. Difficulties awaken us from our recklessness and show us where we are heading to. For this reason, we must embrace hardships

  1. Life is a Test

‘The present world is an illusory pleasure: you are sure to be tested through your possessions and persons’ – Yasmin Mogahed, Reclaim Your Heart

We must realize that Life is a test that God uses to bring us closer to Him. Besides this, we must see life as a test because this perception enables us to realize that we can learn something from everything that happens to us. Lastly, we must strive to realize how we can pass the test of life.

  1. The Importance of Fasting

Yasmin teaches that fasting enables us to control our soul’s desires because it makes us learn to restrain our physical desires. By learning to avoid eating food while no one is watching, fasting also trains us to avoid indulging in immoral activities when people aren’t watching.

  1. The Definition of Spiritual Awakening

Spiritual awakening occurs when you realize that you had a wrong perception of the world. For this reason, awakening enables you to have a truer and beautiful life. It makes you fully aware and makes you realize that you can do and have anything you want. Lastly, when you awaken, nothing from your past will matter.

I believe these lessons will be of help to you on the journey of life. You are welcome to share in the comment box below the lesson you think is the most valuable.

6 Powerful Lessons From Bob Proctor’s Book: YOU WERE BORN RICH

Published

on

In the article, 16 Powerful and Impressive Quotes from Bob Proctor’s Book, I shared with you my favorite quotes from You were born rich. Today, I would love to share with you the top 6 remarkable lessons I learned from this marvelous book.

  1. Money is an Effect of Hard work

No one got rich through luck because every rich person worked extremely hard to accumulate riches.

Besides this, there is no shortcut to riches, and for this reason, all individuals who want to make big money must be ready to do it the hard way.

  1. The Best Way to Attract Money is Through the Prosperity Consciousness

Always imagine that you have the amount of money you wish to possess. This imagination makes your subconscious mind comfortable with the idea of money hence making it attract the amount of money you desire.

Moreover, imagining that you have the amount of money you desire makes the subconscious mind to formulate ways to bring you the money.

  1. No Amount of Reading Will Make You Financially Successful

Books won’t make you rich because they only provide you with knowledge which is only effective if you practically apply it on the journey to financial success.

  1. Let Go and Let God

Everything becomes possible to those who Let Go and Let God.

To Let Go and Let God means to stop worrying about your future, and trust that you will get everything you need to reach your financial goals. It means trusting that whatever must occur for you to reach your financial goals will happen.

  1. Desire Without Expectation is Useless

Desire is necessary for the achievement of your goals. However, it becomes wishful thinking if not accompanied by expectation.

A strong desire must be coupled with expectation because an expectant mindset prevents negative opinions and ideas from uprooting your goal/dream.

  1. Give Away What You Don’t Need And You Will Get What You Need

Give away the things you don’t need to create space for nature to give you what you need because nature always fills an empty space.

Remember, ‘The Law of Prosperity states that new things only come when you let go old things.’ – Bob Proctor

Therefore, if you want anything, for example, new clothes, just give out all the clothes you rarely wear, and you will soon find yourself with new clothes.

I believe the above lessons will help us attract a prosperous life. You are welcome to add more lessons you’ve learned from life/books that can help us attract prosperity.
