Difference between wishing for a thing and being ready to receive it
There is a difference between wishing for a thing and being ready to receive it. No one is ready for a thing, until he believes he can acquire it. The state of mind must be belief, not mere hope or wish.
Open-mindedness is essential for belief. Closed minds do not inspire faith, courage and belief.
No more effort is required to aim high in life, to demand abundance and prosperity, than is required to accept misery and poverty.
