The poor and the rich bank differently. Poor people save their money; rich people bank their money. The poor give with reluctance; the rich give cheerfully. This is significant. Reverend Ike was very knowledgeable about the psychology behind the behavior. His understanding was so profound that he was invited to speak to the students attending the Harvard School of Psychiatry.
Jacob and his mother engineered the feelings they had to feel to receive the blessing. The feeling is not something that is shown on the outside, but that is found and nurtured within you and that leads to the action on the outside. The feeling leads to the being.
Jacob’s feeling led him to follow his mother’s order to wear the furs and impersonate Esau. The poor is more exposed to lack, and so they feel they are in lack. The rich have the supply, and so they seldom feel worried about lack. The focus of their emotions is different. The rich are grateful because he has provisions, and the overflow allows him to be generous. The poor thinks giving is crazy, and he will rather to hold on the little that he has.
You don’t need to be a millionaire for you to have the emotions of a millionaire. In order to become a millionaire, you need to be one first, you start to become one by envisioning your millions. Your first step is to feel rich, and to focus on abundance and gratitude, instead of lack and fear.
