Orison Swett Marden asked what you would think of a prince, the heir to a wealthy kingdom and the child of a generous king, who runs away from the castle to live in suffering and poverty because he wrongly thinks that his father won’t leave him with anything. When you meet that prince, you see that no matter how much his father tries to give him some wealth, food, and a good home, the prince refuses all of it then turns around to complain about all his “bad luck”.
You’d probably think that the prince was insane or something.
Unfortunately, a lot of us live like that prince. Life gives us all sorts of opportunities and ideas, but we wrongly think that we can’t or we don’t deserve to use them. Some of us also think that it’s “noble” to suffer in poverty for some reason.
It’s time to get rid of that way of thinking. Here are three reasons why we actually deserve to be wealthy and prosperous.
