Ella Wheeler Wilcox writes in “The Heart of New Thought”:
No matter if you need your frayed-out garments – do not keep them. Your thoughts of trouble and poverty have impregnated them so that you will continue to produce same despondent mind stuff while you wear these garments.
What does wearing those old clothes do to us? It tells rest of world that we’re old-clothes kind of people, not prosperous people. That we’re stuck in our old situation and not moving on.
Maybe worse, we send ourselves same message. We hold onto them because we think we can’t afford anything better. But every time we put them on we remind ourselves that we don’t truly believe we can do any better. We continually reinforce that message.
Sure, we’re saving a little. But is our goal to save money, or make more? We can find balance between being spendthrifts and cheating ourselves. “Penny-wise and pound-foolish,” saying goes. What we look like reflects our belief in ourselves. Visual impressions are significant, and not just for their effects on others. We believe what we see in mirror.
The good news: much of what we see, we control. Take responsibility for message you send to yourself, not just in words, but in what you allow yourself to see.
