Success and Prosperity: Right Thought and A Right Attitude
Successful minds are of certain type of minds. It is true that they have ambition different from rest of the common people, different vision, and different driving power, different capacity for work, and a strong will. They never spare themselves, and, in addition, they seize each opportunity when it comes. But their principal cause of success is their type of thinking. They think is terms of success and achievement, abundance and prosperity. If we think consistently in terms of success and prosperity, then, sooner or later, we express these things to a greater or lesser degree in our life. In simple words, according to our ability, we achieve the greater success possible in our case. We cannot all be at the top of the tree, but we can for sure reach to the best possible position. Expect in the case of peculiar people who think they can do anything and everything, whereas they can do nothing properly, we can all accomplish much more than we could ever believe possible. There are abilities hidden within us that are undreamed of. Our capabilities seem to increase as our responsibilities grow greater.
Unsuccessful people are those who though sober and hard working and who want to get on, and always sink to the bottom, no matter how much one may help them, and in spite of splendid opportunities put in their way. These people have one habit in common studies says they think in terms of penury and failure. Because of this, all their actions and decisions, unknown to themselves, are of such a kind as to bring about penurious conditions and failure. Men of equal abilities are not equally successful. People born at same time and place are not equally lucky. One may have fixed idea of success and achievement which acts as a center around which his thoughts, both conscious and unconscious, ( https://www.dreamfulllife.com/2019/08/conscious-subconscious-mind-conscious.html ) revolve; while the other has a fixed idea or fear of failure, around which his thoughts continually turn. One is energized and inspired to successful achievement, while the other’s efforts are undermined and his energies sapped idea or fear of failure and ruin.
It may be true that one is born with a successful type of mind, while another may inherit a failure type, yet it does not necessarily follow that the latter must always remain a failure. His type of mind can be changed. By changing his thoughts he gradually transforms the fixed idea of failure into one of success. The attitude of the mind is changed and the thoughts are trained to flow in new directions. This, in time, changes the whole man, so that he rises like a cork in water, instead of sinking like a stone: he comes to what to him is the top of his profession, or calling, instead of gravitating to the bottom. He finds that there is plenty of room at the top, simple because few use their mind in the productive way.
Our thoughts should be not merely of success and achievement, but of service and helpfulness. We should not think so much of “what shall I get out of it”, as “how helpful can I be”, for all solid success is based upon the extent of our helpful to the community. The more helpful we are, the more indispensable we become, therefore, the greater the rewards, as a rule.
Apart from all this, the fact remains that thinking in terms of success and achievement, at the same time maintaining a consciousness of abundance and prosperity, tends to attract these things to us. The mind is creative to a degree undreamed of by most people, and our thoughts attract things to us after kind – opportunities for achievement and more abundant circumstances on the one hand, or failure and lack on the other.
The inner cause of successful achievement, then, is in the mind. Instead of allowing it to wander anywhere it pleases, we have to train it to think constructively. While others are spending their spare time foolishly we must, on the contrary, compel the mind to think positively in terms of achievement. We can hold an ideal in the mind continuously, around which the thought will revolve, naturally and easily. Constructive thinking such this compel us to work and strive while other people waste their time in pleasure. It is no hardship, however, but a great joy. Sooner or later, just when we are ready for it, opportunity comes our way, just as surely as the rising and setting of the sun. The law is infallible. When we are ready the opportunity appears.
In conclusion, success is liable to become our master and we its slave. Therefore, it is important that we choose the highest form of success, if we can. As a rule, however, we have no choice, because our ambition is, as it were, born to us. Positive thoughts are treasures that no money can buy.
