That's one of the principle written in one of the chapters Wallace Wattles wrote in his personal development & success book The Science Of Getting Rich.
Which you can download at www.scienceofgettingrich.net or thescienceofgettingrich.com amongst others.
The chapter in question (Chapter 14) is titled "The Impression Of Increase."
What it basically says is that the Universe is a formless substance that is perpetuated by growth, evolution & increase.
So if you perform an act that promotes this "idea of increase" - aligning yourself with the harmony that IS the Universe - then you will find yourself exposed to & receiving more resources or opportunities to help you do more of these "acts of more" that promote the impression of increase.
Which is part of what the Universe, the "all of everything," is.
For example Wallace Wattles, & yes we're still talking about one of his books The Science Of Getting Rich downloadable here - suggests that we must give in use value than what we take in cash value.
It's the universal "give more than you take" principle.
Were he even refers to selling a hunting rifle to an Eskimo as opposed to selling him a painting.
The rifle is worth more value to him than a painting because he will use the rifle to get him the fur & food he needs to make him rich, not like a painting which won't do him, financially that is, any good by just hanging on his Eskimo wall.
This makes me think of what Robert Kiyosaki said in one of his books about the difference between an asset and a liability, assets being things that bring money IN your pocket, whereas liabilities are things that take money OUT of your pocket.
Like your house "own" for instance.
Many people think that their house is an asset when in fact it takes money OUT of your pocket, that's why you pay a mortgage on it.
It's only an asset to your banker because she's the one receiving the income every month from YOU, in the form of you paying off your house every month.
It only becomes an asset to YOU when you rent it out so that, after all the respective expenses, the tenant pays off the mortgage for you and you still have a profit left over, the profit that goes into your pocket.
Come to think about it I recommend you get a copy of Robert T. Kiyosaki's "Rich Dad Poor Dad" if you want to get an idea of how the mind of a rich women or rich men thinks via your local bookstores, a second hand (used) book outlet like the one we have here in Southgate Mall (even Protea Gardens sometimes has a temporary exhibition of books of this nature), friend, family, library or you can order it on Amazon.com.
It has come to my observation that depending on where you are in your life the effects that The Science Of Getting Rich has can vary from person to person, maybe it's because we all might not be going through the same things at that very point in time.
One woman took the practical principles contained in this book & after implementing them in her own life created an idea that cashed in for her millions of dollars, from reading it in just one sitting - with continuous reference to it throughout her journey to success.
And there was one guy I read of who read The Science Of Getting Rich through a number of times before he FINALLY GO IT!
Which led to him also getting a license for hosting a seminar about it.
Just writing about it now makes me want to go back to it and devour all the juicy richness of its wealth consciousness content and gaining more from it than I did from my last reading.
"When you read a book through the second time around you don't see in it something that you never saw before, but you see in yourself something that wasn't there before."
I got that quote, and have more in reserve, from an audio I listen to every time I get in my car and have on repeat, by Earl Nightingale which I downloaded from a Mark Victor Hansen website.
I want to end of this update by saying that success is a mindset and that it comes from the habits we partake in our daily lives and moments.
So are you current habits progressively driving you towards the financial success you want or are they keeping you in the spider-web of lack and limitation that is echoed by the company you keep?
I mean come on...you want to be rich but you surround yourself with poverty?
How does that work?
That's like going around in circles and thinking you are making progress.
"If you do the things you keep doing, you will keep getting the things you've always gotten."
So here I am asking you to be have an open mind in grabbing a copy of The Science Of Getting Rich that would allow you to take that very important first step towards the life you laugh about with your friends.
A life the other 3% of the people in the world, who make 97% of the money that is being earned in the world are living.
