I’m re-reading the Master Key System by Charles F. Haanel and found this quote in part 3.
It is well to remember that it is not necessary to outline the method by which the subconscious will produce the results you desire. The finite cannot inform the Infinite. You are simply to say what you desire, not how you are to obtain it.
When I decide to create something new in my life through the Law of Attraction I need only to focus on what I want, not on how I’m going to get it. If I decide on exactly how I’m going to get want I want I will immediately cut off every other way that it could possibly appear.
In his Notes From the Universe, Mike Dooley often says that we should not worry about the “cursed hows”.
The tendency to settle upon a cursed how as a means to achieve a particular goal, is simply a sign that you’ve momentarily forgotten how unlimited, creative, and powerful I am, and that I tirelessly conspire on your behalf when you leave me every option.
Let me loose,
By focusing on how something is to manifest limits the magic that the Universe or God can create in your life. By simply focusing on what it is that you want, the Universe or God can bring it to you more quickly and more magnificently than you could possibly imagine on your own.
Here’s another way to look at it. Through personal development with the Law of Attraction you are working to remove the limitations that you have created in your life. By focusing on how something will manifest in your life creates all sorts of limitation.
That doesn’t mean that you should just sit on your couch, imagine how you want your life to appear, then do nothing. Let’s say that I want to attract a new car. As someone said in The Secret, the Universe likes action. If you are a religious person you can say “God helps those who help themselves.” So I’m going to get started with what I know and look for ways to increase my income through my business.
I’m also going to keep myself open to other things that may show up. Maybe a local car dealership is running contest. Maybe a relative will have a reason to give me the car. Maybe my current car will get totaled in the mall parking lot and the insurance money will get me the new car. It will probably come in some way that I can’t think of.
