Today’s post includes a quote from Catherine Ponder along with a summary section from her book, Open Your Mind to Prosperity. Enjoy the post and put her wise suggestion into practice.
The second way to create prosperity mentally is by picturing it. The picturing power of the mind is one of the oldest devices known to man for getting what he wants. Instead of fighting problems, picture your way out of them.
The picturing power of the mind turns your thinking form “I cannot have this” or “It will never happen to me” to hope, belief and finally to mental acceptance that “It can happen to me” and “It will happen to me.”
You can hasten your good by picturing it. You can help others by picturing the good for them.
Generalities do not produce results, because they lack substance and power. Vague hopes and indefinite goals are not convincing to the mind, whereas a clear-cut picture of the good you want activates people, places, and events to cooperate with your pictured desires.
You can picture your way to increased prosperity, health, family harmony–even world travel.
You can picture a thing and bring it about rather than trying to reason it through or force results.
When you are trying to achieve a result and it has not come, it is often because there is still something in mind, body, affairs, or relationships that you need to renounce, free, release, or eliminate. As long as you put off this elimination process, you put off results.
