 Our inner image of ourselves and what we want to accom­plish in life makes us become what we were meant to be. We have each created the lives we are living now through our beliefs we have established within ourselves. Belief systems based on lack and limitation reproduce themselves physically into our lives.


Think of unlimited prosperity – the true reality – and you’ll experience unlimited prosperity – ultimately and inevitably, though not instantaneously.

Think of lack and limitation and you’ll experience lack and limitation.

Limits are things we impose on ourselves, or allow to be im­posed upon us. The bottom line is that our success or failure begins and ends with our attitudes about ourselves and suc­cess. What we believe determines our results What we con­centrate on comes back to us – multiplied 100 times. Our beliefs in the possibility or impossibility of any situation de­termine the outcome of that situation. If we don’t believe in the possibility of success, it’s not possible. Access vast success with self-chosen new processes

Action Step

How do we replace our entire negative belief systems with a new, prosperity-focused belief system? It’s just like anything else – start at the beginning.

1. Write down you’re your beliefs are.

2. Then begin by asking yourself questions like: Do I deserve success and prosperity? What would happen if I achieved success? Am I good enough for the man/woman in my life/that I want in my life? Would my success take success away from those around me, or would it increase everyone else’s? Do I deserve to be happy? Are the people I surround myself with positive or negative influences in my life? Why do I as­sociate with people who bring me down?

3. The answers to these questions will create other questions. For example, if you surround yourself with negative people in your life…why do you do this? Is it because you feel that you’re not worthy of positive people in your life? If so, that is a limiting belief that needs to be replaced with a prosperous belief. You don’t have room for negative peo­ple anymore.

4. One-by-one, eliminate each and ev­ery negative belief. They are like weeds that need to be plucked out and dis­carded. Replace each with a new, posi­tive belief. Working off of the example above, instead of concentrating on your belief that you’re not worthy of positive people in your life, replace that old be­lief with “I am worthy of abundance and prosperity, and only attract positive, en­couraging, helpful, supportive people.” You’ll be surprised at how quickly those “can’t do” people will change their neg­ative tunes or drop out of your life com­pletely. Do this with all of your old be­liefs and watch as prosperity manifests itself into your life.

It takes 21 days to totally eliminate a bad habit and incorporate a positive habit as a new belief. But what’s 21 days when the result will be having ev­erything you’ve ever wanted?

Think big and prosperous and you’ll get big, prosperous results. Think small and lacking and you’ll achieve just that. The choice is yours.
