In reality, both persons could stop doing anything and simply thank the Universe and the car could present itself in the same amount of time.
If you are trying to "trick" the Universe into providing you with your desires by doing x, y, z, you are only fooling yourself. Where is your heart? *That* is what you need to work on. The Universe doesn't require pictures and action, desire is enough.
Good luck with the car.
I was only trying to illustrate that Person 2 did more to FEEL like he owned his new car. (This can't be proven objectively, but for the purpose of this example, it shall be considered true. Don't worry about the specific approaches that the two people used.)
In no way have I thought of "tricking" the universe by performing a certain action. Again, everything is different for everybody. All I'm saying is that you should FEEL like you already have what you want. If you want a new car, driving that car is a great way to have that feeling. It makes you feel great. The emotion becomes more powerful. It's not a trick or a short cut. You can also visualize yourself driving the car. Look at pictures of the car. You can do lots of things. I'd say you've got to do whatever YOU'VE got to do in order to FEEL like you've got it. And I don't think I've been doing that. I need to get out and experience it more. Walk right up to and touch whatever it is that I don't have yet. (Or get as close to it as I can.)
The last thing I'd be trying to manifest right now is a car, haha! Thanks anyway.
