Poverty of Limitation - The Game of Life

Poverty of Limitation - The Game of Life

A woman once asked me why her life was now one of poverty of limitation. Formerly she had a home, was surrounded by beautiful things and had plenty of money. We found she had
often tired of the management of her home, and had said repeatedly, "I'm sick and tired of things—I
wish I lived in a trunk," and she added: "Today I am living in that trunk." She had spoken herself into a trunk. The subconscious mind has no sense of humor and people often joke themselves into
unhappy experiences.
For example: A woman who had a great deal of money, joked continually about "getting ready for the poorhouse."
In a few years she was almost destitute, having impressed the subconscious mind with a picture of lack and limitation.
Fortunately the law works both ways, and a situation of lack may be changed to one of plenty.
