Rich MIND Rich Man, Poor MIND Poor Man
The caliber of your THOUGHTS determines the quality of your LIFE. What gets into your HEAD determines what drops into your HANDS. Attitude + Aptitude = Altitude (2017 edition).
"Finally brethren …whatsoever things are true … honest …just …pure …lovely …of good report …think on these things." Philippians 4:8.
Your mental attitude affects all aspects of your life including health, wealth and happiness. A positive mental attitude helps you to achieve a great financial altitude. A positive mental attitude helps eliminate destructive negative energies such as fear, anger, revenge, hatred, envy, anxiety and regret.
When you harbour negative thoughts, you deplete your mental and emotional energy that is better channelled into the attainment of desirable goals. Negative thoughts and emotions must not be allowed any space in your mind. For speedy progress on the path to wealth and success, your thoughts, feelings, words, actions and reactions must be positive always.
Positive mental attitude suffuses your consciousness with positive emotions of love, faith, gratitude, joy and peace. When positive mental attitude becomes your way of life, you naturally exude a genuinely warm, pleasant and infectious personality that makes being with you an exciting and desirable experience. And when influential people desire your company, the doors of opportunity become wide open.
When you live a life of positive mental attitude, you inevitably cultivate that positive approach to life that successful people are known for - you think positive, talk positive and act positive. You walk tall, face up and confident. You live in positive expectancy, and you achieve great results.
Instead of lack and poverty, think wealth and prosperity. Instead of sickness and poor health, think wholeness and vitality. Instead of defeat and failure, think victory and success. Instead of impossibility, think possibility.
Instead of being pessimistic, be optimistic. Instead of worry and uncertainty, fill your mind with faith and positive expectations. Begin right now to live your life in positive mental attitude.
The major difference between the rich and the poor, the successful and unsuccessful, the lucky and the unlucky, is their mindset or mental attitude. Your mental attitude determines how you act and react to opportunities or challenges that come your way.
Generally, the rich mind habitually manifest rich mental attitude, while the poor mind habitually manifest poor mental attitude, even if unconsciously.
To illustrate, imagine two Minds: a rich Mind and a poor Mind standing side by side on the road kerb and watching as a glittering new car zooms past. They both admire the car and follow it with their gaze as it disappears round the corner.
The poor Mind depressingly shrugs his shoulders, shakes his head from side to side and whispers to himself: I can't have that, or I can't afford that or such is not for me. His poor mind and negative attitude automatically forecloses any search for options; thus effectively shutting down the capability of the Mind to generate solutions to his desires, problems or needs.
On the other hand, the rich mind gets positively excited, nods his head up and down and thoughtfully whispers to himself: I'll go for that! or How can I achieve that? or How can I make it? His RICH mind and positive mental attitude automatically activates and sets in motion the creative energies needed to actualise his desire; thus effectively mobilising all mental and emotional forces towards the actualization of set goals and objectives.
With that background illustration, let's take a quick tour to explore the differences between the workings of the rich Mind and the workings of the poor Mind:
The rich mind thinks possibilities.
The poor mind thinks impossibilities.
The rich mind asks, "How can it be done?"
The poor mind believes, "It can't be done."
The rich mind asks, "How can I get that?"
The poor mind intones, "You can't have that!"
The rich mind asks, "What do I have that I can use?" The poor mind declares, "I don't have what it takes!
The rich mind sees the beautiful rose flowers amongst the thorns. The poor mind sees the dangerous rose thorns amongst the flowers.
The rich mind looks out from the prison window and sees the stars. The poor mind looks out from the prison window and sees the mud.
The rich mind sees opportunities everywhere and goes after them. The poor mind sees risks everywhere and runs away from them.
The poor mind sees Goliath and thinks: He's so big I can't kill him. The rich mind sees Goliath and thinks: He's so big I can't miss him!
What the poor mind sees as an obstacle, the rich mind sees as a stepping-stone.
The rich mind sees half glass of water as half full, and is joyful. The poor mind sees half glass of water as half empty, and is sad.
Rich minds make the best out of the way things turn out. Poor minds make excuses out of the way things turn out.
Rich minds give results. Poor minds give reasons.
The rich mind thinks prosperity and abundance.
The poor mind thinks lack and limitations.
The rich mind gives freely with confidence, aware of his eternal link to unlimited supply.
The poor mind gives hesitantly, lest he be left with less than enough for himself.
Rich minds know life is fun and should be lived to the fullest.
Poor minds believe life is hard and full of difficulties.
Poor minds think poverty is a virtue!
Rich minds know poverty is a curse!
Rich minds passionately WANT money, and do something about it.
Poor minds only WISH they had money, but do nothing about it.
Rich minds have purpose. Poor minds have wishes.
Poor minds revere money, and make it their master.
Rich minds value money, but make it their slave.
Poor minds work for money all their life.
Rich minds send money to work for them.
Poor minds wait to get lucky. Rich minds work to get lucky.
While rich minds create additional incomes to meet growing needs,
Poor minds adopt self-denial and cut-backs to survive.
You can see that there are positive and negative perspectives to every situation in our lives. When faced with exactly the same situation, some people see it from the positive viewpoint while some see it from the negative viewpoint.
Some people are generally optimistic about life, while some are generally pessimistic about life. Our stand reflects our predominant mental attitude: Rich Mind or Poor Mind. And this to a large extent determines what we 'see' and what we don't 'see', our actions and reactions.
How you perceive any situation is a function of your way of thinking or mental attitude, acquire over the long period since childhood. It is an inside thing. Your outer world is only a reflection of your inner world.
Positive mental attitude is a powerful and desirable habit-force that propels you towards your goals in life. By the law of mental causation, you will attract into your life the ideas, people and resources necessary to bring to fruition your most dominant thoughts, be they good or bad, positive or negative, rich or poor.
You must therefore nurture positive thought currents that produce desirable results in your life; and you can easily achieve this by developing a positive mental attitude. Never allow negative emotions such as hatred, revenge, fear, anger, jealousy or anxiety to occupy any space in your mind.
The quality of your THOUGHTS determines the quality of your LIFE. What gets into your HEAD determines what gets into your LIFE. Your mental attitude shapes your earthly destiny. Yes, your attitude plus your aptitude determine your altitude. Rich thoughts, rich Life: poor thoughts, poor Life!
What is your mindset? What is your mental attitude? Is it positive or negative, optimistic or pessimistic, rich or poor? Whatever it is, just know that your Mind is your World, and you can take control of it right now to create a new earthly experience of your choice!
When you live your life in positive mental attitude, when you habitually project rich and positive thought-forms into the universe, you inevitably attract corresponding thought currents back to yourself; and you see your world from an exciting new perspective that puts you firmly in control on the path to a happier, healthier and wealthier YOU. Namaste!
