Mindset for Prosperity
By Randy Gage
How come someone can be comfortable spending $5,000 a month
for fresh flowers, while others would hesitate to spend that much on
a car? Why do some people earn $25,000 a year, while others pay ten
times that much just for their annual Country Club membership? It
has to do with their mindset for prosperity. And mindset is a
Because it doesn’t just come into play for the things you
buy. It also dramatically affects how you view your earning and
profit potential. The wellness or lack of it you manifest. It
determines what you believe you can accomplish. And what you expect
from your relationships. Your money mindset will be pretty
consistent with the way you view other forms of prosperity.
People have a chance at unlimited income potential. But no
one actually thinks “unlimited.” If they have been making $20,000 a
year, they equate unlimited income with earning $30,000 or $40,000 a
year. If they are used to taking home $65,000, they think unlimited
is making $100,000. And if they are used to being paid $100,000
annually, then they probably envision about $200,000. The degree
they see “unlimited” in money terms will be consistent with how they
will view their prospects in health, relationships, and their
The other thing that becomes apparent is how people’s
consciousness can expand. And that is what has to happen with you,
for you to develop a prosperous mindset. It is a continuous process
that never stops.
You start out thinking that $75 is an outrageous amount to
pay for a floral arrangement. Gradually you begin to see the beauty
of a $150 arrangement. Next you are thinking it would be nice to
have some fresh flowers delivered to your home each week. Next
thing you know, you’re spending $1,500 a week on fresh flowers. And
loving it, because you appreciate the beauty it brings into your
Could you spend $10,000 on a purse, a pair of shoes, or a
beautiful coat? Can you see yourself spending $15,000 for a First
Class seat, instead of $700 in coach? Do you believe you could
spend $450,000 for a painting for your living room, or a sculpture
in your entranceway?
Of course things are relative. If you make $20,000 a year,
it would be crazy to spend ten grand on a purse. But then again why
would you make $20,000 a year when you could earn so much more?
Creating true prosperity consciousness is about expanding
your vision of what can be for you. Abundant people see
opportunity. They never think something is too good to be true.
They expect good things. People with prosperity consciousness are
dreamers. They imagine a better way, then work to make it so. More
importantly, they don’t buy-in to the negative and erroneous beliefs
When they are told something is too difficult or not
possible, they simply smile at the thought. They are not easily
swayed with the cowardly cautions of the crowd. The crowd is not
lying. They honestly believe that things can’t be done. They don’t
know the difference between facts and beliefs.
Let’s say a single guy moves to Detroit. He goes to a
nightclub and asks a girl to dance. She looks him up and down, and
says, “With you? I don’t think so.” He beats a retreat home to
nurse his wounds. A few days later he tries another nightclub, and a
different girl. He gets rejected again. This is all the “proof” he
needs to illustrate the “fact” ladies are stuck up in Detroit.
Another guy moves to Detroit the same week. He meets the
couple in the apartment next door in the elevator, and they invite
him over for dinner. A few days later, his car breaks down and a
passing motorist stops to offer him assistance. He becomes
convinced of the fact that people in Detroit are friendly and
So which guy knows the truth? Well in each case, it is the
truth as they know it. But in neither case is it a fact. Both guys
have developed a belief. One has a belief that serves him, the
other has one which does not. Each will probably attract more of
what he expects, and each will likely fall prey to confirmation
bias, finding continuing “evidence” to support his belief.
You probably developed your beliefs about money by the time
you were ten years old and have carried them into adulthood. For
most people these are very limiting beliefs. But the good news is
these beliefs can be changed. You can’t be treated for prosperity;
you have to be open to receive it. And this means expanding your
Instead of thinking what is “realistic,” you must dream about
what you really want. Things like driving through wealthy
neighborhoods, studying vacation brochures, and reading luxury
magazines all expand the window you see the world through and helps
you develop a larger prosperity consciousness.
When your prosperity consciousness expands, your subconscious
mind works to make these dreams come true. It creates confidence,
drive and ambition. Your beliefs change and you begin to attract
more prosperity in your life. But it all starts with mindset.
