Prosperity Conscious vs. Poverty Conscious

October 14th, 2006 | 2 Comments |

What is the meaning of these terms and which one consumes the majority of your thought power. As I have mentioned before thoughts are energy. Thoughts govern our reality, especially when they are reoccurring and focused. You get what you focus on. Thus the familiar quote comes to life: “I think; Therefore I am.” So ask yourself this one question: Are you thinking of prosperity and are thus prosperous or are you thinking of poverty and have been struggling financially for quite some time?

An example of a typical mind frame that is poverty conscious would be someone who takes an envelope full of coupons to the grocery store, passes up a gas station because one 2 blocks away is one cent cheaper, has a hard time spending money, checks the price tags on everything, passes up the item that he/she really wants and goes to the sale rack, and ultimately considers themselves poor or unfortunate and everyone else rich or better off. Some words that might be used are: I hope, I wish, I think I can, I am trying to, it would be nice if…..etc. Also, those who have money because they have saved every penny they have ever earned and have no intention on spending any of it. Yes, I believe in being frugal and wise as far as money management goes, but there is a fine line between poverty conscious and frugal.

On the flip side, a good example of prosperity conscious is someone who¬†can find opportunity in almost anything, can make a decision quickly, knows that money is energy and keeps the flow of outgoing and incoming currency, sees abundance in everything around them, is successful, has a zeal for life and is very positive, tends to be the leader, knows that the expensive rack wasn’t made for the extremely wealthy people, but for him. These are the people who apply the BE-DO-HAVE principle. They are the person…… before they have the life. That is how powerful thought is. You can create any lifestyle you desire through your thoughts.

I have been runninng a very successful home based business for about 2 yrs now and have drastically improved my way of thinking to more of prosperity rather than poverty. Every once in a while I will catch myself and correct my way of thinking but it’s an ongoing thing. I can tell you this much, it has made the difference not only in my business but in my life as well. Evaluate yourself and see what kind of mindframe you have and what you can do to change your way of thinking. If you are looking for a change in your current financial situation then you must first change the way you think.
