Would You Rather Be Wealthy?

Would you rather be wealthy or poverty-stricken? Not a difficult question to answer, is it? How do you think your thoughts impact on your financial state?

Just as the earth contains in its depths great riches--oil, diamonds, gold, uranium, silver, gas and countless other things--you also have the real riches of life deep within you. Your innate intelligence and your willingness to use your mind are precious. Begin mining within!

There is a great story about a poor miner in Scotland who was often unable to even provide shoes for his children. His young son came to him and told him that he wanted to be a surgeon. His father asked him why he wanted that career and he said that a friend at school had had cataracts. An eye surgeon had operated on his friend and now he could see perfectly. The young boy said that he wanted to be able to help people in that same way.

The father told his son that he had saved $8,000 for his education but would prefer that he worked his way through medical school and then use that money to set himself up in a medical practice in a fine neighborhood. The boy did so. He worked nights and weekends and finally graduated. He wanted to live up to his promise to his father and not touch the money in the bank until he graduated.

When he graduated, his father told him that there really was no money in the bank. The new surgeon was completely at a loss for words for a few minutes. Then both he and his father burst out laughing. The son realized that his father had really engendered the feeling of wealth in his son and it had given him the courage, faith and confidence to believe in his ability to earn his way through medical school.

The secret of success, accomplishment, achievement and fulfillment of your goals lies in the discovery of the amazing power of your thoughts and feelings. You must come to a clear-cut decision that you intend to be successful. Impress your subconscious with love, confidence, right action, abundance, security and good humor and it will always be there for you to "mine"! What you think and keep in mind, you will create.
