“My thoughts of abundance

will attract prosperity to my life today.”



abundance2Prosperity is an attitude.  Just having some extra money in your pocket, or acquiring more stuff, or obtaining greater financial security, is not necessarily an indication of prosperity.  Even being rich is not the same thing as being prosperous.  Riches and material wealth are external things; prosperity is an innate state of mind.  Riches can be, and often are, transient and impermanent.  Prosperity is a foundational outlook on life and a fixed viewpoint – a way of seeing the world and the availability of its resources — that determines the long-range relationship of wealth to your life.  Prosperity begins on the inside and then manifests on the outside.


Poverty is also an attitude.  Being broke or temporarily without funds can be just a short-lived, seasonal condition, but poverty is a mindset that generally can take a lifetime to acquire and can, likewise, take a lifetime to overcome.  You could be virtually penniless and still not be poor if you knew how to properly see your situation.  You could also win the lottery or receive a huge settlement and never become truly prosperous.  Lottery winners, or people who quickly come into large sums of money and never develop a prosperous outlook and mindset, often lose their money in short order and end up worse off financially than they were before they got the money.


Creative survival that develops into an assured, prosperous mindset comes from knowing how to play the game of give and take with the intention of winning.  It is enjoying the process and staying in the game with an attitude that serves as a magnet for good things.  Both prosperity and poverty are less states of existence than they are states of mind.  They are both learned behaviors and they are both attractive.  A prosperous viewpoint always sees that it’s too early to quit and too late to turn back.  A poverty mentality sees that it’s too late to start and too risky to continue.  The most basic tenet of prosperity is that if you can see it, you can have it.


By practicing the daily discipline of replacing thoughts of lack and insufficiency with a vision of abundance, you can steadily build truth and an inner conviction into the fabric of your being until you cause prosperity and its fruit to become inevitable in your life.  Seeing the possibility of indefinite prosperity will empower you to reshape your future.  Dare to think new and attractive thoughts concerning what you need and what you have.  There is more than enough of what you need to make your dreams come true, and you literally have it all around you.  You have the power to make good things come to you.  You can change your life by changing the way you see things.
