To be tolerant of others requires great strength of character. You must be secure in who you are not to be threatened by the differences you observe.
1. BELIEVE. I believe that I Am prosperous.
2. FOCUS. I give my attention to prosperity and abundance.
3. INDEPENDENCE. Prosperity does not depend upon others. There is only one Source, God.
4. REALIZE. Worry, fear, anger & discontent impede my prosperity.
5. EXPECT. I expect the best and I receive the best.
6. GIVE. As I give, so shall I receive, ten fold and more.
7. DON'T GIVE UP. Be persistent in faith. There can be no limit to your possibilities.
~ Emmet Fox,One of the most influential New Thought Christianity authors of the 20th Century (1881-1951).

My all time favorite book is Ayn Rand's, Atlas Shrugged and I often blogged about her. In these global economical turmoil, I wished everyone would take time to read Ayn Rand's books:
If you ask me to name the proudest distinction of Americans, I would choose--because it contains all the others--the fact that they were the people who created the phrase 'to make money.' No other language or nation had ever used these words before; men had always thought of wealth as a static quantity--to be seized, begged, inherited, shared, looted or obtained as a favor. Americans were the first to understand that wealth has to be created. The words 'to make money' hold the essence of human morality.
"Until and unless you discover that money is the root of all good, you ask for your own destruction. When money ceases to be the tool by which men deal with one another, then men become the tools of men. Blood, whips and guns--or dollars. Take your choice--there is no other--and your time is running out."
The above is an excerpt from Atlas Shrugged, © Copyright, 1957, by Ayn Rand
I just googled and not surprised to see Ayn Rand's name has been mentioned more lately in the news. Here is just a sample.
