Prosperity Minded – 6 Conflicting Thoughts Battle For Your Success and Failure
Prosperity Minded Leads to a Life of Success!
Successful people train their minds to
think success and see themselves
attaining their goals.
They understand the power of their thoughts,
attitudes, and beliefs and use them as tools to become successful.
So, become prosperity minded and become successful. Sounds easy, right? Wrong!
The problem? Success doesn’t come easy because thoughts and attitudes of failure bombard us daily. Take a look at these six conflicting thoughts, attitudes, and beliefs that battle daily for our success and failure.
6 Conflicting Thoughts That Battle For Your Success and Failure:
CONFIDENCE vs WORTHLESSNESS
Success says, “You are confident and you can do whatever it takes to succeed and prosper.”
Confident people see themselves as being able to overcome any challenges on the road to success. Their confident attitude empowers them to move forward with a vision of success and the ability to rise up and take on any task at hand.
“For the LORD shall be your confidence, and shall keep your foot from being snared.”
— Proverbs 3:26
On the other hand, failure says, “You are worthless, you don’t have what it takes to succeed, and nobody else believes in you either.”
Those who lack confidence and struggle with feelings of worthlessness, are filled with thoughts of assumed failure. They are sure no one else believes in them and they in turn take on the same belief and lack the confidence needed to stay motivated toward success.
DETERMINATION vs DEFEAT
Determination says, “You are committed to the end, no giving up.”
Determined people are prosperity minded and the motivation to succeed seems to emerge naturally from the depths of their heart and soul. Tell the determined person they can’t, and it only fuels their determination to show you they can.
“But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.”
— 1 Corinthians 15:57
Now, on the other hand, defeat says, “You are sure to fail and make a fool of yourself, like you always do, why even bother trying.”
People that live with a spirit of defeat seldom accomplish anything meaningful because they avoid all situations that might result in failure. Thoughts of failure overtake their mind so much so that they rarely make goals toward success, let alone take steps to achieve them. They constantly create excuses why they should not even try.
FAITH vs FEAR
Faith says, “You trust in God and His great power to guide your daily choices toward success. Your future is bright.”
People with strong faith believe they can achieve their goals, and they aren’t afraid to take risks because they trust in God to direct them and help them on their road to success and prosperity. Wrong turns and set backs on the way, do not shake them up, because they have faith that God will work things out and that He is ultimately in control.
“Jesus said unto him, ‘If you can believe, all things are possible to him that believes.’”
— Mark 9:23
Fear says, “You always have bad luck, you have no control, and something bad is sure to happen. You are destined to fail.”
Those who live with a spirit of fear have a mind full of negative thoughts of worry, lack, tragedy, no control, no options, and blame toward others and situations. They avoid risks at all costs to avoid any embarrassment of failure. They feel stuck and they have no faith in themselves or God to make choices and do what it takes to succeed.
Take Control – Prosperity Minded
Success has no limits for those who are prosperity minded and get control of their thoughts, attitudes and beliefs. A prosperity minded person who defines his or her goals based on God’s Word will find they begin to soar to new levels in all areas of life, including; relationships, spirituality, finances, and career.
“I can do all things through Christ which strengthens me.”
— Philippians 4:13
Your goal now? Train yourself to have an abundance of success attitudes, thoughts, and beliefs. Let the Lord be your confidence. Give thanks to God who gives us victory through Jesus Christ. Have faith in God. Believe in yourself and know you can do all things through Christ. Think success – be prosperity minded.
May you be prosperity minded, strive for success, and live a life of growing prosperity!

Abundant Attitude – Think Like a Prosperous Winner and Stop Whining!
Think Abundance – Attract Abundance
The abundance of God is a never ending supply and flow.
In order to see and tap into this supply requires
an abundant attitude.
God is able to do exceeding abundantly above all
that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us. (Ephesians 3:20)
A Prosperous Winner or a Poor Whiner?
There is so much whining and complaining going on these days. I’m sure today alone you’ve heard someone complain about school, family, friends, work, the boss, lack of money, traffic, waiting in line, and more.
What happened to a little gratitude and appreciation? Where is the thankfulness for all the abundant blessing in our lives?
For those whining about their boss and job, there are many who would be more than thankful to have a job with even the worst boss. For all those complainers, there are many people in worse situations that would gladly trade places with them.
Choose not to worry, whine, and complain about life’s challenging circumstances. They only thing whining will accomplish is to attract more of the negative things you are whining about.
Put on an Abundant Attitude and Think Prosperous
The Word of God has the power to cause us to prosper, but we have to put it to work in our lives by meditating on it, speaking it, and doing it.
“As a man thinks in his heart, so is he.”
— Proverbs 23:7
Keep your life in perspective and have an abundant attitude by giving God thanks for all that is going well and all you are blessed with. Think and focus on the positive and attract a greater flow of the abundance of God in your life.
When God’s Word and His principles are first place in our lives, our attitudes and thoughts will begin to line up with His, and we’ll act accordingly.
“Then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success.”
— Joshua 1:8
Speak and confess success and the abundance of God flowing in your life. The power of His Word at work in our hearts will cause us to have thankful, grateful hearts; able to see the blessings all around us.
Is the abundance of God flowing in your life? God has created a system that will produce abundance in our lives. Blessings will come to those who operate in it; even when others experience lack. Choose to think prosperous and put on an abundant attitude!
May you have an abundant attitude and a life flowing with growing prosperity!

Growing Prosperity – Why Limit Prosperity to Only One Area of Your Life?
Would You Like to Successfully Prosper in More Areas of Your Life?
Do you limit it to only one?
Many people find they limit prosperity to only one or two areas because they are diligent in only those areas.
For example, some are successful in the area of healing and walking in divine health, but fail when it comes to financial prosperity.
Why does this happen? The answer given to this question is often that it must not be God’s will that a person be prosperous or healed.
Knowledge of God’s Willingness to Prosper
It is key that we have the knowledge of God’s willingness to prosper us.
“Grace and peace be multiplied unto you through the knowledge of God, and of Jesus our Lord.” — 2 Peter 1:2
We are often like the leper in the first chapter of Mark that knows God is able, but questions whether or not He is willing. But Jesus answered the man’s question saying, “I will” and then healing power flowed into the leper’s life.
Does God want us poor? We need to answer the poverty question if we want to see prosperity come.
We need to know God will and not doubt about His willingness. God’s willingness and prosperity is multiplied to us through the knowledge of God. As we gain the knowledge of God, we gain faith in that knowledge, and in turn see grace multiplied to us.
Get a Healthy Attitude Toward Prosperity In Every Area
If we spend our time with a focus on healing, we will enjoy prosperous health. But then we might struggle to prosper financially. It is important to find a balance.
Our thinking and believing needs to line up with the Word of God, rather than letting preconceived ideas rule that may be contrary to God’s will. If a person believes that it is a sin to have money or live in a nice house, they will have contrary thoughts and attitudes that prevent growing prosperity.
If our mind is not prosperous in a certain area, then usually we will not prosper in that area. If it is the area of finances, then we may not give much because we don’t believe God wants us to have anything. Then because we never believe for a return, even if it comes, we miss it. To reap a financial harvest, it takes a prosperous attitude.
We can prosper in even the little things in life. When we meditate on the Word of God daily, renew our minds, and purpose to live in line with His will, God says, “Whatever you do shall prosper.” (Psalm 1:3)
Make no mistake about it: God is willing to use His power and ability to prosper us. His peace is multiplied to us through the knowledge of God. Peace is prosperity because it joins us together as one with Jesus, and that is prosperity any way you look at it.
May you gain the knowledge of God’s willingness to fill your life with growing prosperity!

A Desire in the Heart and Magnetizing Thoughts
Dare to Listen to the Voice of God Calling You!
it is never too late to reach out and manifest those dreams and desires that God has placed on your heart…
The following is an excerpt from “How to Get What You Want” by Orison Swett Marden…
Enjoy the following, which is taken from chapter 2 of Marden’s book:
“‘Think the things you want.’ The profoundest philosophy is locked up in these few words.
Think of them clearly, persistently, concentrating upon them with all the force and might of your mind, and struggle toward them with all your energy. This is the way to make yourself a magnet for the things you want.
But the moment you begin to doubt, to worry, to fear, you demagnetize yourself, and the things you desire flee from you. You drive them away by your mental attitude.
They cannot come near you while you are deliberately separating yourself from them. You are going in one direction, and the things you want are going in the opposite direction.
“A desire in the heart for anything,” says H. Emilie Cady, “is God’s sure promise sent beforehand to indicate that it is yours already in the limitless realm of supply.”
No matter how discouraging your present outlook, how apparently unpromising your future, cling to your desire and you will realize it. Picture the ideal conditions, visualize the success, which you long to attain; imagine yourself already in the position you are ambitious to reach.
Do not acknowledge limitations, do not allow any other suggestion to lodge in your mind than the success you long for, the conditions you aspire to.
Picture your desires as actually realized, and hold fast to your vision with all the tenacity you can muster. This is the way out of your difficulties; this is the way to open the door ahead of you to the place higher up, to better and brighter conditions.
When Clifton Crawford, the actor, started on his career in America, he played in one-week performances in small towns and cities. One night he was told by a prominent member of the company that his work wasn’t much good, that he would never be successful, and had better go back home to Scotland.
Notwithstanding this discouraging but well-meant criticism and advice, young Crawford remained in America, continued in his profession and in a comparatively short time reached the coveted position of a Broadway ‘star.’
After his first success in New York he had the satisfaction of meeting the friend who had advised him to return to his own country, and reminded him of the incident.
Clifton Crawford won out because he related himself mentally to the thing he wanted, because he listened to the voice in his own soul rather than to the pessimistic predictions of outside voices.
“Why has the heart restless yearnings
For heights and steps untrod?
Some call it the voice of longing
And others the voice of God.”
That something within you which longs to be brought out, to be expressed, is the voice of God calling to you.
Don’t disregard it.
Don’t be afraid of your longings; there is divinity in them. Don’t try to strangle them because you think they are much too extravagant, too Utopian.
The Creator has not given you a longing to do that which you have no ability to do.
One reason why the lives of many of us are so narrow and pinched, small and common-place, is because we are afraid to fling out our desires, our longings, afraid to visualize them.
We become so accustomed to putting our confidence only in things that we see on the physical plane, in the material that is real to the senses, that it is very difficult for us to realize that the capital power, the force that does things, resides in the mind.
Instead of believing in our possession of the things we desire, we believe in our limitations, in our restrictions.
We demagnetize ourselves by wrong thinking and lack of faith.
We see only the obstacles in our path, and forget that man, working with God, is greater than any obstacle that can oppose itself to his will.” — Orison Swett Marden
“Be followers of them who through faith and patience inherit the promises.”
— Hebrews 6:12
God bless you,
Growing Prosperity – What Does the Attitude of Obedience Have to Do With Prospering?
The Heart of Obedience
Manifestation also comes a whole lot quicker and easier when obedience is combined with the right attitude.
How about we take a look at the attitude of obedience?
We know the blessing of God follows obedience to His Word, but the attitude you have in your heart is important too.
The Attitude of Obedience
Many people obey God’s commands but they do it with a bad attitude. 🙁
“If you are willing and obedient, you shall eat the good of the land.”
— Isaiah 1:19
Notice this verse also includes our willingness be mixed with our obedience; in order to prosper and receive abundance. When we step out and act in obedience to the Word of God, regardless of what area, we should do so with a cheerful heart. 🙂
God loves a cheerful giver! (2 Corinthians 9:7)
If you are giving tithes and offerings, or honoring your father and mother, or worshipping God, or walking in love, or forgiving, or praying, it should be done with a positive and willing attitude. When we do what the Bible says we will eat the good of the land.
The opposite side of cheerful obedience is to be grudging or unwilling. The person who obeys, but has a wrong attitude receives a different reward. Keep in mind; we do not have an excuse to disobey. We simply need to adjust the attitude of our heart to line up with our obedience.
Here is some good news: The Lord searches the whole earth to show himself strong on behalf of those whose heart is perfect toward Him. (2 Chronicles 16:9) Perfect here means to have a completely willing heart before God.
Now is the time to start putting this into action. Let’s choose today to not only obey God, but to keep a right attitude when we do. God can do something with us when we have a willing heart. At this very moment He is searching to show himself strong on our behalf and help us prosper and abound.
May your willingness and obedience fill your life with growing prosperity!

How to Attract Prosperity and Abundance with 3 Key Steps!
Unlock the Door to Unlimited Abundant Supply
There is no need to have poverty stricken thinking while there is unlimited abundance available to everyone.
The supply is there and already flowing right past your door…
…it rests with you to make the connection that will draw it to you.
Start making the connection today with these three key steps:
#1) SEEK THE SOURCE
God is the source of all supply. We need the power of God to gain wealth and prosper. Without Him the results we get on our own will be limited and half the time they will result in a mess.
We are told when the Lord makes a person rich He adds no sorrow to it. If we acknowledge God in our lives and seek Him, then He will direct our paths.
“Those that seek the Lord shall not want any good thing.” — Psalm 34:10
#2) THINK ABUNDANT
The law of abundance and prosperity is as definite as the law of gravity. If you are not attracting the abundance you desire, you are most likely still under the mental bondage of limited poverty thinking. However, remember, there is no limitation in Him in whom all fullness lies.
“As a man thinks in his heart so is he.” — Proverbs 23:7
Think prosperous and allow yourself to believe and have confidence in God. You can flood your life with all good things when you have magnetizing faith to tap into the abundance flowing by you.
#3) STAY DETERMINED
You must DO everything to the finish and not quit!
You must believe you will prosper and you must practice what you believe, in order to get results. You must fling your energy into the work needed to reach your goals. Continue to maintain the right mental attitude, with a determination to turn your back on poverty and face toward the abundant life you desire.
You are a child of God, the creator and possessor of all things. His desire is that you prosper. So open your mind to the abundant current of supply He has provided for you.
Believe me: God knows not only what you need in your life, He knows how to help you attract it. Acknowledge Him daily. Let God do His part and you do your part. Then watch as you are blessed to be a blessing to others and attract prosperity and abundance.
May you continue to experience a life of growing prosperity!

The Power of Positive Thinking to Help You Get Happy & Attract Success!
Self-improvement requires adjusting your attitude and becoming a positive thinker. You’ve probably heard that statement a hundred times before. And it is true.
“If you are going to think: Think big.” – Donald Trump
Sometimes the change is so gradual you don’t notice anything at all, until one day someone else points out that you seem different. They may ask if you’ve gotten a new outfit, changed your hair, lost weight, or started dating someone new?
Tapping into positive thinking not only makes you happier, 🙂 but it also makes you more attractive; the kind of person others want to be around.
There are some common signs of positively charged people.
How to Tell if You Are a Positive Thinker?
Check out the following list to see if any of these sound familiar, and help gauge your progress and see what you have to look forward to.
You Know You’re on the Right Track When:
1.) Your long drive to work flew by so fast, you questioned why it ever bothered you in the first place.
2.) You spent twenty-two minutes waiting in line at the bank, on your half hour lunch break, and your day wasn’t ruined and your life didn’t end.
3.) The gas station attendant gives you the wrong amount of change back; you point it out with a friendly smile and he happily corrects the mistake.
4.) The long awaited repair part for your vehicle finally arrived at the dealership after two weeks on backorder, only to discover it was the wrong size. You are so patient and understanding about the mistake, when the dealership calls, they give you a significant discount on the repair service.
5.) Throughout the day, when you catch a reflection of yourself in a mirror, you’re smiling and you don’t think you look like an ugly duckling.
6.) You don’t hear the timer go off and dinner in the oven gets burnt to a crisp, yet somehow you quickly throw something together that turns out better than you originally planned.
7.) Unexpectedly you find yourself with generous free time on your hands, and lots of enjoyable things to do with it, including the energy needed to do them.
8.) You realize the last time you let yourself think “I can’t” was while thinking: “I can’t believe how blessed I am to have all these wonderful things happening to me!”
Well how did you do? Did you recognize yourself in any of these? Or are you looking forward to the day you do?
Regardless of your current level, a key to keep in mind is that the most positive, powerful, life changing thing you can meditate and think on is the Word of God. In Psalm chapter one it says that those who meditate and obey God’s Word are blessed and whatever they do prospers.
Make no mistake about it; positive thinking has the power to change your life. As you continue to use this technique in your life, you will find you don’t have to put much effort into achieving what you want.
