b. Path to Prosperity

Keep this in mind whatever you do, wherever you are:

Your words, your dreams and your thoughts have the power to create conditions in your life.

What you speak about, you can bring about.

If you keep saying you can't stand your job, you might lose your job.

If you keep saying you can't stand your body, your body can become sick.

If you keep saying you can't stand your car, your car could be stolen or just stop operating.

If you keep saying you're always broke, guess what? You'll always be broke.

If you keep saying you can't trust a man or a woman, you will always find one in your life to hurt or betray you.

If you keep saying you can't find a job, you will remain unemployed.

If you keep saying that you can't find someone to love you or believe in you, your very thoughts will attract more experiences to confirm your beliefs.

Turn your thought and conversations around to be more positive and power packed with faith, hope, love and action.

Don't be afraid to believe that you can have what you want and deserve.

Watch your "THOUGHTS", they become "WORDS".

Watch your "WORDS", they become "ACTIONS".

Watch your "ACTIONS", they become "HABITS".

Watch your "HABITS", they become "CHARACTER".

Watch your "CHARACTER", for it becomes your DESTINY.

Its not happiness that makes us grateful, but gratefulness that makes us happy; and it’s nice to be important, but it’s more important to be nice!
