  1. Positive mental attitude

    All riches begin with a state of mind. And remember, it is the one thing over which you have sole control. This is the starting point of all riches, whether they be material or intangible. It attracts true friendship and the hope of future achievement. You labor in the highest plane of your soul, creating. It attracts harmony in home relationships and friendly cooperation. It frees you from fear and provides you with the riches of enthusiasm. It inspires you with the riches of song and laughter, which indicate your state of mind. The joy of knowing that the mind can and will serve any desired end if one will take possession of it and fuel it with a definite purpose. It elicits the riches of play through which one may lay aside all of the burdens of life and become as a little child again. It puts you in touch with one’s “other self” – the self which knows no such reality as permanent failure. The wisdom of meditation through which one may draw upon the great universal supply of infinite intelligence at will. These and all other riches begin with a positive mental attitude.

  2. Sound Physical Health

    Sound health begins with a “health consciousness” produced by a mind that thinks in terms of health instead of sickness. It requires temperance in eating and commitment to physical activity.

  3. Harmony in Human Relationships

    Harmony with others begins with yourself. “To thine own self be true, and it must follow, as the night the day, thou cans’t not then be false to any man” ~Shakespeare

  4. Freedom from Fear

    Nobody who fears anything is free. The seven basic fears that appear in the mind are poverty, criticism, ill health, loss of love,loss of liberty, old age, and death.

  5. The Hope of Achievement

    The greatest of all forms of happiness comes from hope of achievement of some yet unattained desire.

  6. The Capacity for Faith

    Faith is the connection with the conscious mind and all that is. It is the fertile soil of the garden of the human mind where all riches in life are produced. It is the stuff that gives creative power and action to the impulses of your thoughts.

  7. Willingness to Share One’s Blessings

    Happiness comes only by sharing. Riches that are not shared will ultimately die. All riches may be multiplied by the simple process of sharing them where they may serve others.

  8. Labor of Love

    Labor is the highest form of human expression of desire. The forerunner of all human progress. All labors of love are sanctified because they bring the joy of self-expression.

  9. An Open Mind on All Subjects

    It is only the person with an open mind who becomes truly educated and who is thus prepared to receive the greater riches of life.

  10. Self-Discipline

    The person who cannot master himself may never become of the master of anything else. Those that master themselves become the masters of their destiny. The greatest expression of this is in humility of the hear when one has attained great riches or has been overtaken by that which is called “success”.

  11. Capacity to Understand People

    Comes from the basic understanding that all people are fundamentally like and evolved from the same place. Those who understand what motivates others must first understand what motivates themselves.

  12. Economic Security

    Economic security is not attained by the possession of money alone. It is attained by the service one renders – for this may be converted into all forms of human needs, with or without the use of money.

    Editorial by W. Clement Stone

    Silver and gold have I none, but such as I have, give I to you – (Acts 3:6).

    Be Generous! Give to those whom you love; give to those who love you; give to the fortunate; give to the unfortunate; yes – give especially to those to whom you don’t want to give.

    Your most precious, valued possessions and your greatest powers are invisible and intangible. No one can take them. You, and you alone, can give them. You will receive abundance for your giving. The more you give – the more you will have!

    GIVE a smile to everyone you meet (smile with your eyes) – and you’ll smile and receive smiles . . .

    GIVE a kind word (with a kindly thought behind the word) – you will be kind and receive kind words . . .

    GIVE appreciation (warmth from the heart) – you will appreciate and be appreciated . . .

    GIVE honor, credit and applause (the victor’s wreath) you will be honorable and receive credit and applause . . .

    GIVE time for a worthy cause (with eagerness) – you will be worthy and richly rewarded . . .

    GIVE hope (the magic ingredient for success) – you will have hope and be made hopeful . . .

    GIVE happiness (a most treasured state of mind) – you will be happy and be made happy . . .

    GIVE encouragement (the incentive to action) – you will have courage and be encouraged . . .

    GIVE cheer (the verbal sunshine) – you’ll be cheerful and cheered . . .

    GIVE a pleasant response (the neutralizer of irritants) – you will be pleasant and receive pleasant responses . . .

    GIVE good thoughts (nature’s character builder) – you will be good and the world will have good thoughts for you . . .

    GIVE prayers (the instrument of miracles) for the godless and the godly – you will be reverent and receive blessings – more than you deserve!

    Be Generous! GIVE!

    I wanted to share this chapter from As a Man Thinketh by James Allen. I came across it today as I was going through a rough period and it gave me peace. So I share it with you…

    SERENITY

    CALMNESS of mind is one of the beautiful jewels of wisdom. It is the result of long and patient effort in self-control. Its presence is an indication of ripened experience, and of a more than ordinary knowledge of the laws and operations of thought.

    A man becomes calm in the measure that he understands himself as a thought evolved being, for such knowledge necessitates the understanding of others as the result of thought, and as he develops a right understanding, and sees more and more clearly the internal relations of things by the action of cause and effect he ceases to fuss and fume and worry and grieve, and remains poised, steadfast, serene.

    The calm man, having learned how to govern himself, knows how to adapt himself to others; and they, in turn, reverence his spiritual strength, and feel that they can learn of him and rely upon him. The more tranquil a man becomes, the greater is his success, his influence, his power for good. Even the ordinary trader will find his business prosperity increase as he develops a greater self-control and equanimity, for people will always prefer to deal with a man whose demeanor is strongly equable.

    The strong, calm man is always loved and revered. He is like a shade-giving tree in a thirsty land, or a sheltering rock in a storm. “Who does not love a tranquil heart, a sweet-tempered, balanced life? It does not matter whether it rains or shines, or what changes come to those possessing these blessings, for they are always sweet, serene, and calm. That exquisite poise of character, which we call serenity is the last lesson of culture, the fruitage of the soul. It is precious as wisdom, more to be desired than gold–yea, than even fine gold. How insignificant mere money seeking looks in comparison with a serene life–a life that dwells in the ocean of Truth, beneath the waves, beyond the reach of tempests, in the Eternal Calm!

    “How many people we know who sour their lives, who ruin all that is sweet and beautiful by explosive tempers, who destroy their poise of character, and make bad blood! It is a question whether the great majority of people do not ruin their lives and mar their happiness by lack of self-control. How few people we meet in life who are well balanced, who have that exquisite poise which is characteristic of the finished character!

    Yes, humanity surges with uncontrolled passion, is tumultuous with ungoverned grief, is blown about by anxiety and doubt only the wise man, only he whose thoughts are controlled and purified, makes the winds and the storms of the soul obey him.

    Tempest-tossed souls, wherever ye may be, under whatsoever conditions ye may live, know this in the ocean of life the isles of Blessedness are smiling, and the sunny shore of your ideal awaits your coming. Keep your hand firmly upon the helm of thought. In the bark of your soul reclines the commanding Master; He does but sleep: wake Him. self-control is strength; Right Thought is mastery; Calmness is power. Say unto your heart, “Peace, be still!”

    I bring harmony, peace, and joy into every situation and into all of my personal relationships. I know, believe, and claim that the peace of God reigns supreme in the mind and heart of everyone in my home and business. No matter what the problem is, I always maintain peace,  poise,  patience, and wisdom. I fully and freely forgive everyone, regardless of what they may have said or done. I cast all my burdens on the God-self within. I go free. This is a marvelous feeling. I know that blessings come to me as I forgive.

    I see the angel of God’s presence behind every problem or difficult situation. I know the solution is there and that everything is working out in Divine order. I trust the God presence implicitly. It knows how to accomplish what must be done. The Absolute Order of Heaven and His Absolute Wisdom are acting through me now and at all times. I know that order is Heaven’s first law.

    My mind is now fixed joyously and expectantly on this perfect harmony. I know the result is the inevitable, perfect solution; my answer is God’s answer, for it is Divine.

    Go placidly amid the noise and the haste,
    and remember what peace there may be in silence.
    As far as possible, without surrender,
    be on good terms with all persons.
    Speak your truth quietly and clearly, and listen to others,
    even to the dull and ignorant;
    they too have their story.

    Avoid loud and aggressive persons;
    they are vexatious to the spirit.
    If you compare yourself with others,
    you may become vain or bitter,
    for always there will be
    greater and lesser persons than yourself.

    Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans.
    Keep interested in your own career
    however humble;
    it is a real possession in the
    changing fortunes of time.

    Exercise caution in your business affairs,
    for the world is full of trickery.
    But let this not blind you
    to what virtue there is;
    many persons strive for high ideals,
    and everywhere life is full of heroism.

    Be yourself.
    Especially do not feign affection.
    Neither be cynical about love,
    for in the face of all aridity and disenchantment,
    it is as perennial as the grass.

    Take kindly the counsel of the years,
    gracefully surrendering the things of youth.
    Nurture strength of spirit
    to shield you in sudden misfortune.
    But do not distress yourself with dark imaginings.
    Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness.

    Beyond a wholesome discipline,
    be gentle with yourself.
    You are a child of the universe
    no less than the trees and the stars;
    you have a right to be here.

    And whether or not it is clear to you,
    no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.
    Therefore, be at peace with God,
    whatever you conceive Him to be.
    And whatever your labors and aspirations,
    in the noisy confusion of life,
    keep peace in your soul.
    With all its sham,
    drudgery, and broken dreams,
    it is still a beautiful world.
    Be cheerful.
    Strive to be happy.
