"It Works" and the "Magic of Believing"
If you have not read "It Works: The Famous Little Red Book That Makes Your Dreams Come True!" by RHJ and "The Magic of Believing" By Claude Bristol, then do yourself a favor and do it.
"It Works" was written in 1923 so it came before 1948's "The Magic of Believing".
RHJ's book may be one of the ones that Bristol read in his quest for knowledge.
The two are very complementary.
In "It Works" RHJ tells you to decide on what you want and write it down making a list.
Claude Bristol says the same thing, but his desires are placed on a card like an index card and he also has other tricks for reinforcing it like the "Mirror Technique."
Also you may note that in RHJ's book, contrary to most current New Thought ideas, he says to to list what you want.
In the follow up book, "The Meaning of the Mark", he mentions several times people writing down their desires as in, "I Want" not "I Have".
But he also does say that you should feel as though you already have these things, so it is a combination of both.
That may go round to where Joseph Murphy said that saying "I have" is pointless at first, because you do not "have" and your mind knows you are lying to it.
He advocated saying "Health" instead of "I am healthy".
Anyway, like I said, if you have not read "It Works" by RHJ and "The Magic of Believing" By Claude Bristol, do it and look for the similarities.
And you can throw in RHJ's "The Meaning of the Mark" for good measure.
I cannot believe that I have never done a write up on this book. But if Blogger Search is to be believed, I haven't. It Works by RHJ ...
