We can all finish this sentence . . . “An Attitude of . . . GRATITUDE” of course

GRATITUDE QUOTE: “Resolve to perform what you ought; perform without fail what you resolve” Ben Franklin  CHAPTER 6: HOW RICHES COME TO YOU RIGHTLY RICH QUOTE: If you have not done so, read Chapter 6 and then read this blog. When I practice impressing my desires upon Formless Substance, my mind fills the need to justify my desires; as if I need to prove . . . somehow . . . to Providence, or God, to the World, to the All in everything, or to the Formless Substance from which all things are made, that I am worthy and justified in making my request. In contemplating why this may … Continue reading

By All Appearances

GRATITUDE QUOTE – “The anxiety I feel is a result of viewing the world through a reactionary lens”. Nicole Stoddard – CHAPTER 4 – The First Principle in The Science of Getting Rich – Chapter 4 RIGHTLY RICH QUOTE – “To think what you want to think is to think TRUTH, regardless of appearances”. As usual casual conversations include small talk about the weather. As of late, they include talk about the economy. Whether or not you really know much about our country’s economic state, (who does?) everyone, including me, has an opinion that gets casually spread across the day like a low-lying gray cloud; from the check-out counter in the … Continue reading

The Path of Least Resistance

 GRATITUDE QUOTE: IS OPPORTUNITY MONOPOLIZED?: Chapter 3 RIGHTY RICH QUOTE: “There is abundance of opportunity for the man who will go with the tide, instead of trying to swim against it”. Wallace D. Wattles Last fall Curtis (my honey) and I went on a rock hounding trip to look for turquoise. We paid a fee to go to a turquoise mine with the pretense that, at minimum, we would come away with some nice samples for our collection.  I don’t profess to know how turquoise, other minerals, semi-precious or precious stones occur in nature, but after some time digging around the dry Nevada mountainside in the hot autumn sun, we found … Continue reading

We live for the Mind, the Body, and the Soul

GRATITUDE QUOTE: “The aims of the 2nd half of life are different than those of the first”.  –  Carl Jung, Psychologist It is not a coincidence that I made the decision, the choice to be rich at the dawning of the 2nd half of my life. I’m 47, so I consider myself “half baked”. If I live to be 100, I have a delightful 50 years of earning and yearning, growing and blowing, winning and grinning my way through the richness of life.  No, it is not coincidence, it is providence in action. CHAPTER 1: The Right To Be Rich Chapter 1 RIGHTLY RICH QUOTE: “It is in … Continue reading
