When it comes to prosperity accepting it isn’t enough. You have to expect it as well. How you view your chances at successfully doing something has a great deal of effect on the way you approach the task. Or more specifically, whether you even attempt it or not.
Many times someone will think of an invention. They could patent the idea, sell the rights, and make a great deal of money. Some people do this. Often however, they have the idea and think, “Oh someone probably already thought of that.” Or they talk themselves out of doing the idea, because they aren’t qualified to design it, manufacture it, or market it. Of course they don’t need to know these things. They just need to have the idea and find someone who wants to take it forward.
Or they may talk themselves out of competing in an athletic competition, asking someone to dance, or applying for a better position. While the Universe offers us light, Edison still had to invent electricity. And while you have electricity now, you still have to flip on the light switch. Prosperity is waiting for you to call upon it.
Most people don’t make that call. How about you?
Do you approach new projects with the belief that you will succeed—or expect you may need to fail a time or two, before you will get it right? Do you enter a sporting event expecting to win—or thinking you are already beat? Do you expect to be wealthy—or expect to struggle? It’s worth some thought.
