Prosperity can never be obtained with poverty consciousness; it requires prosperity consciousness. This means you understand prosperity is a value-for-value exchange that benefits both parties, whether giver or receiver, buyer or seller.
Prosperous people are always willing to pay fair market value for the things they want and need. They don’t pass up savings when offered, but that is not the sole basis for making their buying decision.
People with poverty consciousness think they can somehow scrimp, chisel, or discount their way to prosperity, but that effort is fruitless. There are situations where negotiating is expected, such as garage sales, car dealerships, and real estate transactions. But people with poverty consciousness feel every price should be negotiated, every offer counter offered, even places where it’s never appropriate. They’ll spend 30 minutes searching online for one-dollar-off coupon – oblivious to how the time (and energy) they spend obsessing over coupons and discounts could be redirected to actually manifesting more prosperity in their lives.
Prosperous people would rather spend their time creating more value, which manifests as greater prosperity. They don’t obsess over coupons, discounts, or bargaining – and they never look for unfair ways to exploit others. Be happy to exchange value for value for all the possible good which comes your way.
