Step 1 (the only step necessary): Learn to effectively use what you have – that alone will make you rich; it will attract more abundance to you.

(a) John had a rusty hammer, but learned to use it well. He became ‘quite the carpenter’. His reputation expanded. He soon found himself working many great jobs, and quickly thereafter, he had a large box of great tools with which to work, and even a new truck.
(b) Jim had a toolbox of new carpentry tools, but never learned to use one of the tools effectively. He soon found himself unemployed and had to sell his tools just to pay the rent.
Prosperity had John whistling while working; poverty had Jim mumbling and grumbling.
