One day, I was eating in a swanky restaurant with a friend—a friend who, ever since I could remember, was permanently in financial lack. Financial problems stuck to him like glue. While munching, he looked around the nicely-decorated room and said, “The owner of this restaurant is probably cheating. He’s probably not paying his taxes. He’s also probably not paying the right salaries to his waiters. And he’s also probably…”
I cut him mid-sentence and asked, “How do you know?”
I figured he probably had inside information.
But he said, “Isn’t it obvious? He’s so rich. He must be cheating.”
That day, I realized why my friend was poor. Why he was always buried in debt. Although on the outside, he wants to get out of poverty, on the inside, he wants to remain poor. Subconsciously, he was resisting wealth. His subconscious mind found a way to avoid becoming rich. Because according to his belief system, all rich people are bad people—and he didn’t want to be bad.
Do you want to gain a Prosperity Mindset? Stop judging all rich people as crooks. Some rich people are very good people. When you see a friend becoming rich, share in her joy. Be happy for her. When you do that, you’re telling yourself that it’s also okay for you to become rich.
How Do You See God?
How do you picture God?
I know some people who think of God as a God who wants us to suffer. Who wants us to remain poor. This is the Theology of the Poverty Mindset. God is a stingy God.
But the Prosperity Mindset sees God as a generous God. Generosity is His nature. Generosity is His character. And God is a God who wants to bless us with abundance. The Bible says, And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus. (Philippines 4:19 NIV).
