What does the book teach?

The book considers the idea that there is a key to success that all successful people have used whether they are consciously aware of it or not, and this secret is constantly working and in motion.

The secret is: if you are just wishing for things in your life you will never achieve them, but if you earnestly desire what you want, focus on it and think of it constantly there is a ‘greater power’ that will conspire to bring you the ‘success’ that you are looking for.

It doesn’t matter if call this ‘Greater Power’ the Universe, an inner power, your subjective mind or God – it will bring around the results in the same way.

It Works provides a method for copying the method that all ‘successful’ people have used whether they knew it was this that gave them their success at the time or not.

Why does this work?

The majority of all ‘successful’ people have a goal that they are moving towards. More so that they have faith that they are going to get their end result no matter what. Their faith in achieving whatever they want is unwavering and undying. They think constantly of their goals and make moves to make them happen on a regular basis.

This method can be linked to Manifestation and the Law of Attraction. Whether you believe in these or not… Knowing what you want in life and focusing on it on a daily basis you are forced to think about your goals and you will have a much better chance of succeeding than just wandering around in the dark for your whole life.

It helps you keep you focused on what is important to you and even if the method brings about your results as happenstance it likely came about better or quicker than normally would have.

The Method to getting everything you want in life

Create a list of everything you want in life. Be specific and don’t hold back. Create this list in the order of their importance to you.

  1. Read the list of what you want 3x per day (morning, noon and night)
  2. Think of what you want as often as possible. While you have free moments visualise what it would be like to have what is written on your list
  3. Do not talk to anyone about your plan except to the ‘Great Power’ which tell you how to achieve what you are after

From here it is important to give thanks to your ‘Great Power’ when it unfolds the method of accomplishment to you and brings about what you’ve written on your list.

The book also states that it realises acquiring faith at the start can be tricky. Therefore, it recommends that you stick to materialistic things at the start before moving onto other things.
