You’ve heard people say you have to “act as if”? If not, then let me introduce you to one of the most important parts of achieving prosperity - Acting as if.
You are now beginning to believe you are a prosperous thinker (this is assuming you’ve been through our previous posts and lessons on the “Dynamic Laws of Prosperity” - Catherine Ponder’s glorious work).
First you have to establish and maintain an attitude of rich increase toward EVERYTHING and EVERYBODY! Let your main thought, when thinking of yourself and others, be the thought of riches, prosperity, great good and success. Believe it or not, just by thinking these things you CAN make it so.
Give others your benefit of rich and successful thoughts - this will help them become that way even if they are not consciously aware of what you’re doing.
One example that Catherine Ponder gave was of a man who was credit manager collecting overdue accounts. He used this concept of seeing the good and richness in others and he led in collections for the entire company which had offices all over the south. On one customer who owed thousands of dollars he said to the officials of the company “the only way we will collect all this money is by being kind, courteous and positive in talking to him. We’ve got to restore some faith in himself; we’ve got to show him that we believe he will soon be able to pay this amount in full. Criticism will get us nowhere.” After they did that the man turned his life around and instead of declaring bankruptcy he was able to begin paying back the money he owed.
