Hi this is Joan and this is episode 40 of The Prosperity Show. Thanks for tuning in. Today we're going to talk about developing a prosperity attitude. But before we get to that, a few things. Our main site is prosperityplace.com where you can find lots of information about improving your relationship with money and yourself. A lot of the information is free. I had announced a seminar, "Is your Inner Child Keeping you Broke?", but we've had to cancel that because I have to have some more eye surgery this coming Thursday. So I didn't want the pressure of having to market and prepare the seminar. So, we're not going to have the seminar.

A prosperity attitude leaves room for taking chances and for opening yourself up to a lot of new things. As a matter of fact, we've talked about this a lot, that changing your financial position definitely means opening yourself to new ways of behaving, and a lot of new thoughts and beliefs, so that you have to be willing to look forward and to expect a positive outcome. Because if you don't expect a positive outcome, you probably aren't going to change a lot of things in your life, and remember, your financial position, whatever it is, is congruent with who you are. It's absolutely in tune with who you are. And so if you want to change your financial position, you really have to change some basic things about yourself, and there's probably thousands of things that you could look at, but the ones that we look at, thoughts, beliefs, emotions and behaviors. And when we look at emotions, we're looking at your emotional response to life's stimuluses. So that when something happens, that activity...
