How can you think abundantly but behave frugally? How do you continue to spend responsibly if you believe in abundance beyond the visible supply? This is a very good question worth addressing.

For example, you may have heard it suggested that if someone would like to afford and buy a house of their liking, they should just go buy it, then the means will come for them to afford it. Should a family first develop the means, then buy the home of their liking, or buy the home of their liking first, which is beyond their current means, then allow additional means to present themselves using the law of attraction?

There is a time and a season for everything, and there is a time to slow down and lay a better financial foundation, (even while people all around your are getting all the same things you desperately want for yourself), and there is a time to reap the benefits and enjoy an increased measure of prosperity. Delayed gratification is one of the primary principles of success that, when followed with discipline, will increase your confidence in being able to achieve anything you want in its proper time.

The seasons for planting and harvest are cyclical. The Science of Getting Rich philosophies helps you believe that prosperity can happen for you, and give you the courage to believe it is actually okay to reap a few benefits when the season for the harvest finally comes. Without a proper understanding of the principles, it can (ironically) be too uncomfortable to allow yourself to receive, even during the time of harvest.

So in terms of when to spend and when to resist, it's so important to rely on personal inspiration to get the timing right. There are different times to put money to different purposes.

Timing, purpose, and direction will be different for everyone on each person's path to prosperity. What looks completely irresponsible in one case is the saving solution in another. The only real security lies in relying on personal revelation which offers a calming assurance that you're on the right track.

You can learn more about how to receive personal divine revelation for yourself by viewing the Jackrabbit Factor 4-minute movie at which reaffirms the step-by-step process namely, set your goal, put it to paper, see it in your mind, experience the feeling of victory now, then look inward and trust your own instincts, with a solid understanding of the principles so that if you do something completely outrageous, you are consciously aware of what you're doing and why, and can move forward with an assurance that a wiser, unseen power is truly guiding you.
