Do or Do Not
If you want to know if you are (or can become) prosperous, you need to look at the language that you are using. Language is a very telling sign of who you are. Many say "I am trying to become wealthy" or "No matter what I do, I can not find a way to afford ______ (fill in the blank)." Using the words "try" or "can not" do not move you forward towards prosperity. To create prosperity in your life, you need to take responsibility and take action towards what you desire in your actions and your words. One of the steps towards prosperity is to watch the words that you are using. To this point, words that express responsibility and action instead are "I will", "I can", "I choice" and "I am going to". For example, "I can not afford my dream car" focuses on lack and limits. The words "can not" expresses what you are unable to do while giving up your responsibility. Instead say "I choose to be financially responsible". This shows that you may desire a fancy convertible car, however you choose to be practical until you have the money for the convertible. This shifts from what you can not afford to what you choose to do with your money. One can always afford most things by either working more or going into debt (at the expense of their retirement), but this should be a conscious choice rather than accepting defeat to the power of money. When one gives up their power over money, is when they get in trouble because money controls them (with debt and lack) instead of them controlling their money. Other examples are:
