• The God of heaven, He will prosper us. — The Bible, Nehemiah 2:20
• Turn the great energy of your thinking upon “plenty” ideas and you will have plenty regardless of what men about you are saying or doing. — Charles Fillmore (1854-1948) American Mystic
• You do not have to force success and prosperity. Instead, you can develop that exalted, expectant, prosperous state of mind that is a magnet for all good things.
Train your mind never to be disappointed. If certain things do not come at certain expected times in the way you wished, do not consider it a failure. Since you have not received that thing, you can instead stand firm in the faith that something much better is on the way and will appear at the right time. — Catherine Ponder (1927 -) The Dynamic Laws of Prosperity
• I have whatever I need to fulfill my needs.
• I can use whatever comes my way in a positive way.
• All wealth is created by mind.
• The more willing one is to prosper others; the more willing others are to reciprocate. Your prosperity is based on the prosperity of others. Balance prosperity with the quality of sharing.
• You cannot expect to receive if your motivation is based on fear, desperation, or stress. Only in a peaceful, relaxed state of mind can you focus your thoughts and feelings with a purity and clarity that will return clean results.
• Prosperity is naturally associated with desire. Connect your desires with a higher purpose. Fit your need or want into a grand scheme. Sincerity glues your desire to that higher reality. As you “hunger and thirst for righteousness,” realize you may need to look past immediate gratification to the greater good.
• Be goal specific.
• Take obvious action steps.
• Foster a state of calmness and openness.
• Use prayer – focused, purposeful, and sincere.
• Open a place in your physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual self to be filled with your desire.
• Write down your desires.
• Picture your desires as completed results.
• Declare: No one or no thing can withhold good from me.
