Day 96: The Source

I find prosperity thinking to be extremely interesting. I once spoke on the phone with acclaimed author of Happy for No Reason, Marci Shimoff, and she recommended I check out The 40 Day Prosperity Plan by John Randolph Price. The book is a meditation program for wealth in which you affirm to yourself that your boss, your job and your investments aren't the source of your income: God is. According to Price, when you expect all of your income to come from certain places, you are closing off an essentially unlimited divine source. If you can trust that God will show you opportunities to have everything you'll ever need, you'll be set.

This idea may be a bit too religious for some, but personally I like it. When I was in my depressed post-college haze, I vowed to myself that if I found better, more effective ways of thinking I would try to adopt them. Three years after testing out prosperity thinking, I'm in much better financial shape. You could make the argument that it doesn't necessarily have a lot to do with my shift in focus, but there's no way to know. That's the thing about faith, to get any benefit out of it, you need to stop asking questions and start believing. Give it a shot sometime, I'd rather be healthy and vaguely religious than starving and cynical any day.

In today's writing news, I worked on some character writing prompts about pilots, scientists and a few more dentists. I also wrote a post of creative writing hints. Happy Friday everybody!
