Step 47 - wealth mindset

It depends on how you think. You know the source Avos 4:1.
We have to keep saying - I have everything I need , as Yaakov Avinu said.
Keep Giving
One of the proofs that you have abundance is that you keep on giving away Maaser. As you show Hashem your active desire to give by actual giving , He will keep on enabling you to give more.
The Avos , Yosef hatzadik , Moshe Rabeinu were all wealthy in every way. The Torah teaches us how just as we learn to accomplish all goals in life.
Now may be a good time for a gem of Torah study.

Step 46- avoid being needy

If you need this or that- you may develop & grow more needy.
Instead , practice - Who is prosperous ? One who rejoices with his portion ( avos 4:1 ).

We need to change our Thinking.
Focus the great provisions Hashem keeps providing you with. Such vast abundance Baruch Hashem. Hashem will keep providing. You owe Hashem thanks for a lot ,make some deposits regularly , in the Thank You Hashem dept.
Rejoice with your portion & it will expand. Be happy. Feel happy for so much. Now.
Think - Hashem keeps giving me good things & He will give you more & more.

Step 45 - seeing reality

Consider , if you were holding a bright red , delicious looking apple in your right hand & you were contemplating to thank Hashem for creatng this glorious fruit
Or imagine holding it without thinking about it at all -
What is the difference between these two cases ?
The thoughts.
A third case - you are not holding an apple now but you are thinking of one you once saw - you can generate great feelings of appreciating Hashem by thinking of what He does for you.
The key is to focus our thinking.
We can imagine things & then produce them with Hashems help by means of prayer , persistance & getting on the pathway.
Connect the dots
On the path one is determined to go Hashem will lead him.
It is wise to visualize your goals.
Thus we have a practical approach for moving ahead to achieve.
But how will Hashem do it , you may wonder ?
Let's say you need about 25,000 where will it come from ?
Hashem has many ways , we don't have to worry for Him.
One possibility is He may send you a client / customer who happens to need something you produced or have connections with & you get the sale.

Step 44 - looking Ahead

The metaphor of a roadway - on the path- implies also the concept of looking down or up the road to see where you are headed.
Who is wise ? One who sees that which will be born , our Sages teach. The mind Hashem gave us can be trained to think ahead & prepare for dealing with the future.
We can visualize & create pictures in our minds , to see ourselves achieving that which we desire to accomplish. Thinking with realistic pictures in our mind is a powerful way to generate our desire to grow & acheive greatness.
When we rehearse in our mind & our desire increases & the actual materializes quicker & smoother.
There is a saying in some ways , machshava kemaaseh - thoughts are as actions.

Thoughts of repentance can change the past , & sincere plans for the future can make it come to fruition.
On the path one is determined to go ...

Step 43- key to Righteousness

A tzadik falls 7 times but keeps on getting up. Mishlei 24:16
Why ? What is the logic of this definition ?
Why isn't he considered a failure ?
Since he is determined to keep on getting up no matter what , his determination keeps on growing which causes Hashem to lead him to higher levels.

Step 42 - Teshuva Revision

If you realize that you have erred - you need to replay the event or action, to recreate it the right way. Hashem has given us the power to choose to recreate events , with regret & tikun to rectify the past. It is not so easy to change , but it is doable.
It is never too late to change the past if we do Teshuva now.

Start Small - step 41

Practicing with a parking space is a good way to experience Hashem s system of leading you on the path you desire.
But we need to shoot for higher & greator levels as well. How about to merit to have children ?
The Gemara asks the question regarding some of the greatest people in history who had difficulties in this area. Why ?
The answer given is that Hashem was giving them a greator gift first - the opportunity to develop & perfect themselves by such activities as prayer.
But does this contradict the premise of on the path... ?
Perhaps if one would know Hashems reasons for why this is the best for him for now , this is what he would truly want.
As we pray properly we begin to change our thoughts & feelings , and we become more worthy. Pray for growth & expect it. Daven that Hashem should help you become worthy of His great blessings.
The same applies to other areas as well. Pray for more clients / sales etc. Hashem can help you serve as a conduit to help more people.

Torah quiz

Our Sages teach that Hashem gave us His Torah with fire , water & in the dessert / wilderness. What is the signifigance of these 3 issues ???

There are many aspects of each of the 3 elements. One point of the third is that any place can be the right setting for accepting Hashems Torah when we realize that the Torah is life itself !
