The story was told of a balloon salesman on the street of New York City, who attracted new customer by releasing a balloon whenever his sales dropped.
As the balloon takes off in the air, new customers are attracted and his business would pick up again. The balloons were of different colours, first a white one, then a red one and later a yellow one.
After watching for some time, a little black boy asked the balloon salesman an insightful question. “Mister, if you released a black balloon, would it also go up? The balloon salesman looked at the little boy and said, “Son, it’s what is inside those balloons that make them go up, not their colours.
YOUR CHANGE MUST BEGIN FROM THE WITHIN
Listen, it’s what’s inside you that will make you go up financially!
The change of financial position and status you most desire must begin from the within. If prosperity is not in the inside of you, no amount of hard labour can make it happen on the outside.
To change your outer world, you must first change your inner world.
Everything that happens in your physical reality, comes from the inside.
“And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.” Rom 12:2
Another version says
“Don’t become so well-adjusted to your culture that you fit into it without even thinking. Instead, fix your attention on God. You’ll be changed from the inside out. Readily recognize what he wants from you, and quickly respond to it. Unlike the culture around you, always dragging you down to its level of immaturity, God brings the best out of you, develops well-formed maturity in you.” Rom 12:2
Thoughts + Actions = Results!
Thoughts are things!
Your journey into the world of wealth and riches begins with saturating your thought life with thoughts of wealth. It is the thought in your mind that defines the reality of your life.
Getting rich is not a stroll in the park. Rich people are very clear they want wealth. They are unwavering in their desire and commitment to create wealth. And since wealth is the result they crave, they think wealth. They have trained their mind to generate thoughts of wealth that will enhance their desire to create and accumulate wealth.
The thought patterns of the poor are at variance with the thought pattern of the rich. Unlike the rich, the poor think poverty, financial emptiness and problems. They want wealth, yet they think poverty.
This is what you need to work on yourself to change.
“For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he…..”Pro 23:7
It is your thinking that determines the result you generate. And it is your thinking that must change for your financial position and status to change. Think wealth; think riches, think financial plenty, if this is the result you want to see in your life.
Descartes said “I think; therefore I am.”
CHANGE YOUR MIND, CHANGE YOUR LIFE
At the root of your financial transformation is the renewing of your mind. You need to reprogam your mind to think only the thoughts of wealth and riches.
This is God’s strategy, if you must change your financial position. “And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.” Rom 12:2
The principal instrument in this mind renewal process is the word of God. To prosper in this kingdom you need to give time to meditation of the word of God.
“This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success.” Joshua 1:8
According to the word of God, you can make your way prosperous. “…for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous….” It is your responsibility to making your way prosperous. And this you’ll do as you meditate on the word of God.
You can get what you want financially instead of having to want what you have.
Human beings can alter their lives by altering their attitudes of mind.
Now let me ask you this question, “would your present thought pattern enhance your pursuit of wealth and riches?” if not, why follow a path that is not getting you closer to your dream of financial plenty.
Albert Einstein defined insanity as “doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.”
