As A Man Thinketh And Your Home Business

(No Ratings Yet)

As A Man Thinketh is a great little book by James Allen that has been rewritten into modern and gender neutral language. But in any language Allen teaches us the way to prosperity in our lives including your home business. So, what do you think? If you are brave and really want to know, look at your current situation. Because your current situation is a manifestation of how you really think. This is as opposed to how you think you think. If you really think prosperity, then you will demonstrate prosperity in your life and business. Are you demonstrating prosperity in your business? If you really think “lack” but thinly cover it up with thoughts of prosperity, then your business will demonstrate lack. If you really think: “I can’t afford that!”, then that will be your reality even if you try to think prosperity in general. Its the same thing with thinking or saying “I can’t do that” or “that won’t work”. If these are indeed your basic thoughts covered up with some form of positive thinking, the result will be that you really can’t do that or it won’t work. So, when you look at yourself and your business; are you demonstrating lack or prosperity?

Bottom line then is that you need to “tend to the Garden of Your Mind, weeding out all the wrong, useless and impure thoughts and cultivating towards perfection the flowers and fruits of right, useful and pure thoughts”. “Good thoughts bear good fruit and bad thoughts bear bad fruit” (in the book). This will require some work. But which thoughts make you feel bad? Those are the one to eliminate. Which thoughts make you feel good? Those are the ones to have more of. This work will need to be done continually if you want good things in your life including your home business.

At times it will be difficult or impossible to put that “bad feeling” thought out of your mind. You may need to push it out of the way with a “good feeling” thought. For better results, this other thought should be completely different; like thinking about a past or future vacation, or other special event. Think about someone you love and what you can do for them. How can your business better serve more people? Do you get the idea?

Finally, turn the negative thoughts like “I can’t afford that!” around and think “How can I afford that?” or “I can’t do that” into “How can I do that?” or “that won’t work” into “How can I make it work?”. Then concentrate and write down your thoughts. If you practice any form of mediation then apply it to this situation. Focus and don’t give up. The power of your conscious and subconscious mind will find an answer for you if you try.

So, what do you think? If you are brave and really want to know, look at your current situation. Your current situation is a mirror of how you really think. Your next thought should be a “good feeling” thought. Importantly, don’t take yourself too seriously. Recognize your good qualities along with those that you would like to change, and then set about changing them. Try to have some fun with the process.
