The Law of Supply - The 2nd of the 11 Forgotten Laws - You Must Know About This Law to Succeed

What is The Law Of Supply and why is it so important to your ultimate success? The underlying premise of The Law Of Supply is that God (or The Universe, if that's what you prefer) is the source of all supply. And because God is the source of all supply, there is no shortage in the Universe. There is a never ending supply for all our needs.
The Law Of Supply also goes on to state that when there is a demand for something, the resources needed to create it are available.
There has to be a demand first before we can be aware of the supply. For example, the raw materials to create a motor vehicle has been present in the earth since the dawn of mankind. But it was only once man 's mind broadened to imagine this sort of transport could a demand for it be created. And once the demand was there, man became aware of the raw materials (supply) needed to build the car.
In Raymond Holiwell's book, Working With The Law (The highly acclaimed 11 Forgotten Laws Program is based on this book) he tells the story of a dairy farmer who owned and operated a small dairy farm outside of Pittsburgh. The poor farmer worked hard to eek out a living from what appeared to be barren land.
One day he noticed several men who had been examining the adjacent land walk across his fields. With budding curiosity, he watched them studying the scum and slime in the stream that ran across his farm. He was baffled as to why they would be interested in this.
A few weeks later a man called him and offered him a fabulous price for the farm. He jumped at the opportunity and sold the farm. He moved to Canada and bought another farm.
A few weeks later some strange contraptions were set up on the farm. Word spread that the new owners had struck oil.

Meanwhile, the farmer continued to work struggle and work hard and he eventually died poor.
Raymond Holiwell uses this story to illustrate the point that God supplies us with all that we need. But because we don't know how to tap into this we remain poor. He says "Man will ever be poor as long as he demands of life a meager living and sees in it struggle, toil, hardship and limitation."
Right now, in the midst of the recession, most people are anxious and worried about money. The media bombards is daily with how bad things are and how much worse they're going to get. But anxiety and worry are detrimental to us. It limits our supply of abundance and prosperity.
We need to alter our mindset from a poverty-consciousness to an abundance-consciousness. And that's easy to do once we realize that God, or the Universe or the economy isn't limiting our supply. We are.
Wealth does not come from the vocation you choose. There is money to be made in any field or profession. Look around you. You'll see poor doctors and rich doctors, lawyers who are struggling to make ends meet and those who are thriving. The difference between those who are successful and those who are not lies in their mindset and thinking.
