Life Changes

The other day I downloaded an e-book I found that's called The Science Of Getting Rich. I just started reading it today, and I found this statement:

YOU CANNOT RETAIN A TRUE AND CLEAR VISION OF WEALTH if you are constantly turning your attention to opposing pictures, whether they be external or imaginary.

Do not tell of your past troubles of a financial nature, if you have had them. Do not think of them at all. Do not tell of the poverty of your parents or the hardships of your early life. To do any of these things is to mentally class yourself with the poor for the time being, and it will certainly check the movement of things in your direction. Put poverty and all things that pertain to poverty completely behind you.

You have accepted a certain theory of the universe as being correct, and are resting all your hopes of happiness on its being correct. What can you gain by giving heed to conflicting theories?

Do not read books which tell you that the world is soon coming to an end, and do not read the writing of muckrakers and pessimistic philosophers who tell you that it is going to the devil. The world is not going to the devil; it is going to God. It is a wonderful becoming.

True, there may be a good many things in existing conditions which are disagreeable, but what is the use of studying them when they are certainly passing away and when the study of them only tends to slow their passing and keep them with us? Why give time and attention to things which are being removed by evolutionary growth, when you can hasten their removal only by promoting the evolutionary growth as far as your part of it goes?

No matter how horrible in seeming may be the conditions in certain countries, sections, or places, you waste your time and destroy your own chances by dwelling on them.

You should interest yourself in the world’s becoming rich.

I suddenly realised something I'd already known, but had forgotten. What we think and believe, is what our reality is or becomes.

I immediately ended my other project, Eyes On The World:

Today I realised I've been making a mistake. I realised that our reality is what we think it is, and the more people who think reality is a certain way, the more reality becomes that way. In trying to enlighten others of 'the truth', all I'm doing is giving strength to the reality of global unrest and political disharmony. The more people that put energy into the bad things that are happening, the more those bad things will happen.

By focusing so much of our energy on what we don't like, we are creating more of what we don't like.

As of today, I'm going to make more positive-minded decisions in my life, and start a more positive way of thinking. Instead of focusing on the bad, I'll look for the good. Instead of thinking about what I lack, I'll think about what I want. I'll change my mind, and subsequently, change my life.

What you think, you will become. I'm going to now prove it beyond a shadow of a doubt.
