WISHING VS. BEING READY TO RECEIVE

Think & Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill

“There is a difference between wishing for a thing and being ready to receive it.  No one is ready for a thing until he believes he can acquire it.  The state of mind must be belief, not mere hope or wish.  Open-mindedness is essential for belief.  Closed minds do not inspire faith, courage or belief.

Remember, no more effort is required to aim high in life, to demand abundance and prosperity, than is required to accept misery and poverty.  A great poet has correctly stated this universal truth through these lines:

I bargained with Life for a penny,

And Life would pay no more,

However I begged at evening

When I counted my scanty store.

For Life is a just employer,

He gives you what you ask,

But once you have set the wages,

Why, you must bear the task.

I worked for a menial's hire,

Only to learn, dismayed,

That any wage I had asked of Life,

Life would have willingly paid.

ACTION STEP FOR TODAY:

Take a second today and assess what you are asking of life.  Not just in your finances, in your health, your relationships, your spirituality, are you asking for menial wages or what your worthy of?
