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!

Inspiration – Words of Hope and Encouragement in Times of Trouble!
Hope and Encouragement is on the Way
If you are in an emotionally, physically, or financially difficult spot…
…do not become discouraged.
Throughout history, during very troubling times, God provided words of hope and encouragement.
God is For Us
“’For I know the plans that I have for you,’ declares the Lord, ‘plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.’” (Jeremiah 29:11)
We must understand a very important truth, if we are going to overcome trials and reach our full potential: God is for us. He is not against us.
Even if our current situation is due to discipline or judgment for our own disobedience, God still provides us with a promise of victory and deliverance. God never leaves His people hopeless, even when they drift in their love for Him.
Do Not Fear
Right now, your faith may be confronted with a terrifying unknown. You may be facing a fearful situation and feel hopeless; as if you will barely survive.
But hear this: God does not want us to be afraid of the future. Jesus often said “Do not be afraid” and “Peace be with you” in order to give comfort and show understanding.
In times of trouble it is good to evaluate and adjust our faith, and rediscover a deep need for the Lord. We see God often use trials to position us for greater blessing.
You may not understand how God will deliver you, but you can be sure that He will. Take courage and believe that He will calm the raging storm surrounding you, and you will witness the clouds breaking apart.
The Lord always has our best in mind; even while we experience great disappointment. God’s desire is for us to see Him as our only source of salvation and blessing. In the book of Revelation, God gives to each believer a message of eternal hope. It reminds us to not be afraid and describes God’s eternal triumph.
“The Lord will come again, and in the coming of the Lord lies the great hope of the believer, his great stimulus to overcome evil.” – Charles Spurgeon
Wisdom and Hope for Today
Through the Word of God we get the wisdom and direction we need to face any and every situation; today and in the future.
So, go ahead now and do your part. Ask the Lord for help and to reveal His will and plan for your life. Commit yourself fully to Him. Walk in obedience to His Word no matter what the cost. If you take this approach, God will provide for you in ways that go far beyond human understanding. Have hope and be encouraged: God is with us.
May your hope be in God and your life full of growing prosperity!
God bless you,
