Byrne re-introduces a notion originally popularized by persons such as Madame Blavatsky and Norman Vincent Peale that thinking about certain things will make them appear in one’s life. Byrne provides examples of historical persons who have allegedly achieved this. Byrne cites a three-step process: ask, believe, and receive.
This is based on a quotation from the Bible’s Matthew 21:22: “And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive.”
