All wealth is the offspring of power; possessions are of value only as they confer power; events are significant only as they affect power; all things represent certain forms and degrees of power.
This passage points to us the idea that power, wealth, and possessions are inter-related. Haanel makes this point because in Point #1 he wrote
Abundance is a natural law of the Universe…
…that mind is the active principle whereby we are related to the things we desire.
As you think of your goals, as you plan for your goals, as you work toward your goals, Haanel insists that
…the law of growth begins to take effect and we find that conditions and environment are but the objective form of our thought.
Quoting from the Bible, Haanel wrote in Point #11
With an understanding of this law you may ‘decree a thing and it shall be established unto thee.’ (Job 22:28)
There are different translations of that verse and different interpretations as well. For some it will sound “Secret-ish” in the sense that we can “manifest” what we want.
A better understanding of the verse reveals something a little bit different. It means that whatever it is that you decide to do — whatever your goal is — you can do and it will be done.
And it will be done because you confidently and persistently work at it. As Haanel wrote in Point #23:
Knowledge will not apply itself. You must make the application. Abundance will not come to you out of the sky, neither will it drop into your lap, but a conscious realization of the law of attraction and the intention to bring it into operation for a certain, definite, and specific purpose and the will to carry out this purpose will bring about the materialization of your desire by a natural law of transference. If you are in business, it will increase and develop along regular channels. Possibly new or unusual channels of distribution will be opened and when the law becomes fully operative you will find that the things you seek are seeking you.
Those are some powerful words!
Make note of them!
Your understanding of this process and these principles will be the deciding factor between your success and failure.
