Think & Grow Rich Lessons

This weeks lesson, How to Outwit the Six Ghosts of Fear, was so full of insight and I had so many ahha moments that this lesson could go on for weeks.

But, the biggest ahha moments for me was reading about the fear of death and of poverty. Not poverty or death for myself, but fear of my husband's lack of money should I die first. I have put a lot of pressure and worry about this upon myself with this kind of thinking.

I told my mentor, Celeste, that my "why" is to work my business so that my husband would have enough money to live in a nice place if I should go first.

When I have said this to other people, they have told me that it seemd very negative, but I didn't think of it as fear of povery or death until today when I read about it in Think and Grow Rich. 

Now I look at death and poverty with faith that I will succeed, and it has taken a big weight off of my shoulders.

I will now concentrate on "living" with my husband while we are still both alive and enjoying our time together whatever income there will be.

I do believe that this new kind of positive attitude toward poverty and death will also allow the success that I desire to come forth.
