FREEDOM BOOKS - The Midas Method

Setting Of Place

STEP THREE:

Choose a place for your work where you feel comfortable, and are unlikely to be disturbed. The entire program will only take about fifteen minutes every day but remember you may have to say some things out loud and this could be embarrassing.

If you have your own bedroom, then this is ideal; otherwise, choose a time when you are likely to be alone, and select a place (an armchair is sufficient) which you can use for your work. You will not always be able to do your work in this special place, but you should aim to do so as often as possible.

Now choose two times during the day when you will do this important work. This should be one session in the morning, and one in the afternoon or evening. Two, seven-minute sessions a day is all that is required to make this method bring BIG RESULTS for you.

You will not always be able to do your work at these exact times, but you should aim to as often as possible.

You can now start on the practical work!

Here's what you do next:

STEP FOUR:

At your chosen time, go to the chosen place and take out the 'setting of place' card.

STEP FIVE:

Stand, and with your arm extended (as though pointing at something straight ahead of you) inscribe a large capital 'G' in the air in front of you. This 'G' stands for 'Goals' and serves to alert the subconscious mind to what you are about to do.

If you can visualise this 'G' hanging in the air after you have inscribed it, then so much the better.

STEP SIX:

Now sit quietly and relax for about one minute. Try and clear your mind of the confusing thoughts of the day.

Take the 'setting of place' card and read it out loud. Try to feel the 'specialness' of the place where you are working; for the moment, at least, it is dedicated solely to helping you to achieve success.

STEP SEVEN:

Now take the goal card, read it OUT LOUD (if possible), otherwise whisper it under your breath!

IMAGINE yourself getting up at the required time and on the required date to write your goals. 'Hear' the alarm clock going off and 'see' yourself springing out of bed at exactly the time stated. This visualisation is most important.

STEP EIGHT:

When you have done this, stand again, and pointing in the manner described before, un-trace the capital 'G'; that is trace it in reverse so that it 'vanishes'. This tells the subconscious that you have finished the exercise of goal setting.

That's all there is to it...for the moment.

Repeat this exercise twice every day, at your chosen times,and at your chosen place, until the evening before the date you wrote on your goal card. As I said, this should be only a few days away.

On the evening of your big day, set your alarm clock for thetime stated (two hours earlier than you normally get up). In the morning, when the alarm rings, spring out of bed. DO NOT DALLY orallow yourself 'another five minutes'. We are playing for BIG stakes here; you're not getting up to go fishing! What you achieve here will allow you to get EVERYTHING YOU HAVE EVER WANTED; don't blow it for the sake of an extra hour or two in bed!

After getting dressed, take the sheet of plain, white A4 paper and a good quality pen (as before). Now copy your goals from your rough sheet of paper onto the sheet of A4. Use your very best and neatest handwriting, and take your time. If you make a mistake, screw up the sheet and start again.

You should end up with your six (or so) goals written neatly, with no mistakes onto one sheet of A4. Fold this sheet in any suitable manner, and place it somewhere for safe keeping. Choose a place where other people will not stumble across it, but where you can get easy access to it yourself.

Don't go back to bed, just use this extra time for whatever you want.

YOU HAVE NOW ACHIEVED YOUR FIRST GOAL! (Getting up at the stated time.)

If, by some accident, you DID NOT manage to get up, then you should regard this as a serious setback. The only remedy is to start again, and MAKE SURE that you get up next time!
