  1. Day 1

    Q1) A person may get rich with mathematical certainty through the application of the Science of Getting Rich as it is an exact science for which there are certain laws that govern acquiring riches which once learned and obeyed, and man or woman can get rich with mathematical certainty.

    Q2) The ownership of money and property come through doing things in a certain way which is aligned with the laws behind the Science of Getting Rich. It doesn’t matter if you know that you are doing these things in this certain way or not, all that matters is that you are. Faith is the key.

    Q3) If you do these things in a certain way, you will get rich. If you do not, you will not get rich regardless of how hard you work. Like cause produces like effect, and in such, the need to be in harmony with these laws is unnegotiable.

    Q4) Getting rich is not a matter of location or environment, if it were, you would find all of the rich people come from the same neighborhoods. Getting rich is connected to being in the right place to execute a market opportunity though. So, that is to say that it doesn’t matter where you come from as long as you are prepared to go to where you need to so you can execute on market opportunities. Be where there are people to deal with, and be inclined to deal with those people who wish to deal with you. Learn how to do things in a certain way. Learn how those who succeed are doing things, and follow their lead. Success leaves clues. One may get rich in the same environment as where another fails. This can be said of two people being in the same business, in the same area. So, your location is not inherently exclusive to riches. If anybody in my town can get rich, so can I. If anybody in my state can get rich, so can I.

    Q5) Getting rich is not a matter of talent, if it were, only talented people would be rich, yet many people who have great talent remain poor. Men and women with less talent can and do become richer than those who already have talent.

    Q6) Getting rich is not a matter of saving or thrift, if it were, only those who are capable of saving will ever get rich. Riches also come to those who spend freely. This is where the mindset of abundance plays a key part. Behaving like there is always going to be more than enough attracts riches in that it opens your mind to the idea of riches, where being tight with money narrows the focus to cutting back. The poverty mindset pushes riches away with its energy.

    Q7) It does not a matter if you do things that are neglected or overlooked by others as these are not required to be given attention to in order to get rich. People who overlook things still get rich where others dot every i and cross every t. Talented people and untalented people get rich. Intelligent people and unintelligent people get rich. The ability to do your work meticulously is not on it’s own in harmony with the laws behind the Science of Getting Rich.

    Q8) Getting rich is not a matter of the right business or the right profession as there are plenty of examples of the right businesses in the right places failing for one while another succeeds. What matters is the ability to do certain things in a certain way.

    Q9) The type of business or vocation I tend to do best in is the type that I have capacity to execute upon with optimal value based outcomes for me, my business, and my Customers.

    Q10) There is no need to change businesses or careers to get rich as the vehicle is not what matters on it’s own. Getting rich is not primarily about the business or vocation. It is about the application of the laws of success within the business or vocation.

    Q11) The benefit of capital helps with being able to more promptly execute in dealings that attract riches. Capital that can be deployed into a venture will return a positive outcome when done in line with the laws behind the Science of Getting Rich. If you have no capital, you can get capital.

  2. Day 2

    Q1) Through applying the laws within the Science of Getting Rich and operating from faith that the fundamental statements as acted upon without fear or hesitation will see a man or woman get rich with mathematical certainty.

    Q2) The causes the ownership of money and property is found in the holding to the faith that the laws within the Science of Getting Rich are true and their delivery certain. To entertain even the slightest of thoughts to the contrary is counterproductive in that faith the size of a mustard seed can move a mountain. If all you see is faith and it is simply the size of a mustard seed, then all you see is 100% faith. This, and the application of the self to the required tasks will see the ownership of money and property come to fruition.

    Q3) If you focus only on the laws within the Science of Getting Rich, and apply yourself with faith in the fundamental truths in this certain way, you will infallibly get rich. On the other side of the coin, if you do not, you will not.

    Q4) Getting rich is not a matter of location in that when two men or women in the same business, in the same neighborhood, have differing outcomes, and one gets rich while the other gets poor or remains bankrupt, the only indicative point of difference is in how they do what they do.

    Q5) Getting rich is not a matter of talent in that very talented people remain poor, while there are plenty of examples of rich people who have no comparable talents.

    Q6) Getting rich is not a matter of saving or thrift in that many men and women who are free spenders get rich, while others who are conservative with their spending remain poor. Operating with an abundance mindset is something that echoes the point made with the mustard seed illustration. What you focus on expands. If you focus on surplus and abundance, you will see more examples of this around you. If you focus on lack, you will attract this and see more evidence of this around you.

    Q7) Getting rich is not a matter of doing things that are neglected or overlooked by others in that very intelligent people can be found who do not get rich, while there are ample situations that can be found where men and women who are not of the same intelligence are far richer. Doing things that are neglected or overlooked is of no consequence when doing things in a certain way.

    Q8) Getting rich is not a matter of the right business or the right profession in that you can change things about your current business or profession to attract riches in line with the laws in the Science of Getting Rich. You may be in the right business or vocation, but in the wrong locality, or serving the wrong market. Simple changes in line with the laws spoken of can attract riches through serving people where they have a need in a certain way. If you help enough people, through application of the laws within the Science of Getting rich in your business or vocation get what they want, you will inevitably get what you want.

    Q9) I will tend to do best in the type of business or vocation that brings value to those who are my Customers which I can deliver goods and services to through doing things in a certain way which causes success.

    Q10) There is no need to change businesses or careers to get rich unless the business or career is one that is by nature of it’s necessity void or fallible, meaning, selling ice to Eskimos is arguably not the most commercially viable of strategies. Systemic redundancy requires thought to be given to the vehicle in terms of general limitations. Remembering that success leaves clues, it is easy to find opportunities, as long as you are prepared to learn how to look for the clues. Do things in a certain way so that you too can succeed.

    Q11) The benefit of capital are that it allows for a quicker ability to execute on dealings. If capital is something that is not possessed, this can be obtained when things are done in a certain way in line with the laws outlined in the Science of Getting Rich through the faith that like causes produce like effects.
