  Close your eyes every day in the morning when you first get up and every night before you go to sleep and visualize the rich lifestyle that you want to lead.

It's all part of your spiritual journey.  
 -  Stuart Wilde

  If you want to become rich, you must not make a study of poverty. Things are not brought into being by thinking about their opposites. Health is never to be attained by studying disease and thinking about disease; righteousness is not to be promoted by studying sin and thinking about sin; and no one ever got rich by studying poverty and thinking about poverty. Medicine as a science of disease has increased disease; religion as a science of sin has promoted sin, and economics as a study of poverty will fill the world with wretchedness and want.
