Do you believe that people have a mindset of either a prosperity consciousness or a poverty
For whatever a man thinks in his heart so is he. If a person thinks they are poor, speaks poverty from their tongue and believes it in their heart, they will stay poor. Yet - If a man who is poor, believes in his heart and confesses with his tongue only prosperity, he will begin to be prosperous. The mind, the heart and the tongue are very powerful and people don't always think before they speak or "feel" something.
It seems that people tend to be one or the other as a result of their upbringing or circumstances. It also appears that people can change their mindsets as a result of their own choice or events in their life however there is a tendency that whatever mindset they've held from their youth or upbringing is the one they will stick to for most, if not all their life. Whatever we believe is so. I agree with ii3rittles.
ii3rittles is right, in my opinion. In my own case I found that it took a little courage to 'put your money where your mouth is,' so to speak. I had heard that the more you give, the more you get back and this applied also to money. I put this to the test in the following way:
For years, whenever a charity sent me a request to donate money I'd put in a check for a token amount I could easily afford. So I decided that I'd give this a test to see if it worked. With some trepidation, I decided to more than triple the amount for a period of six months. If nothing had changed, I'd stop this.
Would you believe it! At the end of that six months I had more money in the bank than when I started. My usual income stayed exactly the same, but money came to me in other unexpected ways. I was marginally better off.
However, getting out of the rut and expanding that donation amount again to see what happens hasn't happened. I really could afford the tripling of the amount. But doing again with larger donations hasn't happened. I'm thinking that it is fear that holds me back; not willing to take the risk. I'm pretty sure this comes from my upbringing. Also,having a wife who has also been brought up to be 'careful' with money and who gets rather scared when big bills come in, doesn't help.
I still believe that if we Lessen the fear and take a first step, we will gradually change towards greater prosperity. Nature loves positive action.
