Excerpt from How To Program Your Mind For Wealth
Today we need to tackle a crucial aspect of prosperity consciousness that may be holding you back from the true wealth you deserve: the ability to receive gratefully.
You have been following this program for over three weeks now. If I have done my job properly, you are probably enjoying this process more than you ever thought possible, and I’ll bet you have already attracted abundant experiences beyond what you believed was possible in thirty days.
On the other hand, if you have been diligently applying yourself to this program and yet you can see no real physical effects in your life, I can virtually guarantee that you have a psychological block against receiving.
This is the most common cause of lack in our society, for we are so absorbed by the notion of complete independence that we feel we must succeed without any help from anybody in our lives, and we feel guilty if help is given or money comes to us without us having “earned” it. This attitude will simply not attract abundance.
You must realize that you are not on this planet to struggle for survival, completely isolated from all around you. Our extreme insistence on individuality simply fuels our feelings of isolation in a seemingly uncaring world. The truth is that you are completely dependent upon the world around you and every person in it for your survival. Alone, you could not feed yourself or protect yourself. Without the gifts of oxygen, water, and sunlight, you would die.
In order to truly be happy you must realize that you are constantly receiving help from the outside world in order to live your life, and you must receive gratefully everything that comes to you. With this attitude you open yourself to more abundance and more prosperity, and you are more apt to respect and love all other people, for they are vital to your survival and happiness.
Take five minutes right now and feel the truth of these words:
I WILL GRATEFULLY ACCEPT ANY GIFT OR HELP THAT PEOPLE OFFER ME, AND I WILL HAPPILY OFFER GIFTS AND HELP TO ANYBODY THAT I CAN. I WILL GRATEFULLY ACCEPT ANY GIFT THE UNIVERSE HAS TO OFFER.
TAKE ACTION: Try to remember the last time something was offered to you. Did you accept it freely and graciously? Or did you reject the offer, or try to pay for it, or feel guilty for taking it? Your attitude will tell you a lot about your ability to receive. Right now, decide that you will freely accept any gift the universe offers you in whatever form it takes.
“You are prosperous to the degree that you are experiencing peace, health, and plenty in your world.” –Catherine Ponder
