Catherine Ponder

  • One positive statement of good is more powerful than 1,000 negative thoughts; and two positive statements of good are more powerful than 10,000 negative thoughts.

  • Whatever the mind is taught to expect, that it will build, produce, and bring forth for you.

  • Failure is nothing but success trying to be born in a bigger way. Most seeming failures are just installments toward victory!

  • It has been said that work is the highest form of play.

  • If you think a complimentary thought about someone, don't just think it. Dare to compliment people and pass on compliments to them from others.

  • Through persistence, you can be one of those happy, victorious people who not only chases dreams, but who catches them! The persistent man also perseveres long enough for his dreams to catch up with him!

  • Everything in your world is filled with intelligence, even the so-called inanimate objects. Treat them intelligently if you wish to obtain intelligent, harmonious results.

  • Your ships come in only after you have sent them out.

  • Nature does abhor a vacuum, and when you begin moving out of your life what you do not want, you automatically are making way for what you do want. By letting go of the lesser, you automatically make room for your greater good to come in.

  • All financial doors are open; all financial channels are free, and endless bounty now comes to me.

  • It is easy to speak words of love, or to meditate lovingly upon those people with whom you are in harmony. But it is those people who seem most difficult, who may even seem hostile, that need your radiation of love most. Their very hostility is but their soul's cry for loving recognition. When you generate sufficient love to them, the discord will fade away.

  • ... scientists now believe that everything is endowed with an innate intelligence that knows what you say, think, and feel about it. If you speak of things, people, and conditions in a positive, prosperous way, you gain their subconscious cooperation. Whereas, if you criticize your world, you repel its blessings and attract only negative, limited conditions into your life.

  • If outer doors close seem to close to you, do not hesitate. Perist in inner preparations. The inner realm of thought controls all outer action. When you get the right attitude, the outer world of results and personalities must conform to it. That is the law of mind-action.

  • Some authorities believe that one prosperous thought is more powerful than a thousand failure thoughts; and that two prosperous attitudes steadily held and expressed are more powerful than ten thousand failure attitudes!

  • Often, failure is success trying to be born in a bigger way, and persistence helps you to experience that greater result.

  • What you praise you increase.
