Prosperity is a state of mind…It is done to you as you believe…Do you believe that what you think about you bring about? Your sense of security is an inner condition that does not depend upon outer circumstances. It’s like the farmer choosing the kind of seeds he will plant. Be careful what you plant because it will grow and multiply. The farmer does not make the wheat grow. He only plants the seed. In the same way, you plant your thought seed, trusting and knowing that the harvest will, in due time, appear. Stay focused on what you want, not what you don’t want.
Who do you think gave you the talent and the ideas for your career/life/business? Did you just make it up? Who gives you nudges to do this or that, when you pay attention? God/Spirit/Life Force, whatever you want to call it, gives you the necessary ideas and clothes them with all that is needed to bring them into form, if you believe.
Your prosperity does not depend on others. You don’t need to steal, coerce or compete for prosperity. You don’t need to inherit it. Start with where you are. You have creative imagination. You have intuition to guide you. You have a reservoir of understanding and ideas that can overcome any problem. Start with what you have and move confidently forward.
Be grateful when you pay your bills! So many hate to pay bills, hate to pay taxes, and put off writing checks as long as possible because they hate to see their bank account diminished. Be careful here, as this stems from a mistaken belief that your Source of Good will run out. Try writing “thank you” in the memo section of the checks you write, and be truly grateful for the goods and services the world provides for your comfort.
There are two approaches to life: the prosperity approach, and the poverty approach. Fear of poverty is poverty itself. Some people believe that because of their background, their environment, their nationality, they are destined to be poverty-ridden/cash-strapped their whole lives. It doesn’t matter how much money a person has…it’s how he views money that matters. There’s a saying: “I’ve been broke many times but I’ve never been poor.”
