The Dynamic Laws of Prosperity, Catherine Ponder
The Dynamic Laws of Prosperity (1962, released in French in 1980). Catherine Ponder (American minister of the Unity Church) offers suggestions as to "How to use the Power of Prosperous Thinking to win your goals, How certain attitudes of mind create Prosperity in you life, Why the strongest force in the world works for your benefit, Key words, phrases, meditations that work wonders of wealth, and How to use the Secret Laws of Wealth for your

Years before The Secret by Rhonda Byrne made The Law of Attraction popular, I came across this book while I in a psychiatric ward being treated for a manic episode of bipolar. Although this is a book about financial prosperity, it taught me to shift my focus from not getting sick to staying well. Before I learned this I had four hospital admissions for mania in five years. Now I've stayed well for twelve years. This book is gold and an absolute must-read.

I consider this to be a must read if you have any doubt that your creator wants you to be prosperous. Reverend Ponder is a Unity minister. She is the author of many books. This one presents a way of looking at your financial situation including your bills, being grateful and using affirmations to support you in becoming prosperous. The concept of the vision board from the movie "The Secret" is discussed in here and this book came out long before that movie.

I love this book. It changed my life...for the better. It has great affirmations on almost every subject. It taught me to create a vision board that all came to be within 1 year! Everytime I need to turn my negative thoughts around...I turn the pages of this book and find myself back in a positive frame of mind! Great bedside book.

Fantastic, life-altering book by the ever-inspiring Catherine Ponder, who in her wonderful Southern way, articulates and shares principles and affirmations for living an abundant life, including the most important step of opening our minds to prosperity in all its forms. I also highly recommend the Audible version of this book, in Mrs. Ponder's voice, from a series of "tapes" recorded in the 1970s of her original seminars. Don't settle for the other Audible version, which unfortunately is devoid ...more

This book by Catherine Ponder is the best on financial prosperity that I have read. I have read well over 200 books in the success genre (mainly older volumes like this one) and Ponder is the most plain & thorough.

Ponder explains that prosperity is God's will but that it requires beliefs and actions on our part. As with many in this genre of books, there are religious elements throughout. The key for any religion reading these books(I am a Christian) is not to suspend your core b

Very rarely have I read a book that started to have a positive, palpable effect--WHILE I was reading it; I usually have to digest it a bit, and maybe review certain parts. I can enthusiastically say that this work was DEFINITELY an exception! It really increased my faith--especially in the way of prosperity thinking. I was raised in a church family that promoted the same, yet my faith had faltered. This clearly-written book, with many real-life examples-started a virtual FIRESTORM in my creative ...more

Written in 1962, this author was way ahead of her time. She discusses truths that people were oblivious to back then and are only now starting to discover and recognize as reality. Whenever I need some inspiration I pull out this book and read a chapter or two...or the whole thing. I always feel empowered and excited afterward. This book doesn't only discuss, money as the title may suggest. It covers all aspects of prosperity.

Lots of good stuff in this book. I think this writer was way ahead of her time when she wrote it! But maybe a bit too religious for my taste.

I'm of two minds when it comes to this book...

From a content perspective, I LOVED IT. I bought it after a career-related meltdown a couple months ago, and the ideas conveyed in its pages brought not only clarity on attitude changes I should make, but also validation of certain things I'd already been doing right. I also like how Dynamic Laws includes prayers and affirmations that help you focus on specific angles of prosperity.

From an editorial perspective... I'm not sure if it's th

Catherine Ponder is known for the Dynamic Laws series.... of healing, love, prayer etc., apart from Prosperity. I could be wrong, but believe that this is the first book in the series. The Secret by Rhonda Byrne has overtly taken many ideas from this book.

It is a book of encouragement and direction, providing motivation and challenging the readers to think positive even in times of distraught. The idea is not new, the recipe is not new, but the book will likely hold its guts through the ages as

I have read several books on prosperity, and this was not my first introduction to this type of thinking. I have used the law of attraction to bring things into my life before, so I'm a firm believer the universe provides. Although there were tidbits that I liked, overall I found the inserted biblical references and the multitude of examples distracting. Again, maybe it's because this wasn't my first rodeo. I didn't feel like I needed to have examples hammered into my head.

The book is very good for most anyone interested in the subject of prosperity. The author sites many examples in the Bible that helps convince the reader that prosperity is something that our maker wants us to obtain. The book is a little longer than I believe it needs to be. "The Four Spiritual Laws of Prosperity" by Edwene Gaines is more concise and to me is presented better. Gaines does give Ponder credit for being a major influence.

One of my most used books in my personal library. When I first started to read this book 3 years ago I was barely in it and already things were changing for the good in my life. Now I keep it by my nightstand and whenever I need a boost or clarity I just close my eyes, ask for the right thing to read and randomly open the book to the perfect page. This is one of my favorite books.

"Your persistence is your mental plow which helps you to break up those old failure attitudes of mind, which have previously kept success from you" (p. 414). The expression of "mental plow" is really powerful. We human beings also need to continually renew ourselves mentally. We need maintenance. We need to feel reenergized each day we wake up and face life. Life is supposed to be a challenge for all of us. The key difference between those who succeed and those who do not is in whether they have ...more

I reread this book every day. Along with my daily prayers, this book keeps me grounded and keeps me conscious of what I say and how I speak. It has blessed my life in a tremendous way. They say you are what you think. Think you’re destined to fail and you will. Say you are blessed and you are. However, you must believe you’re in charge of your own success and you’ll achieve to the highest heights. I have used positive affirmations to create positive changes in everything in my life from finances ...more

Good but a bit repetitive at times. Basically your thoughts affect your life. She goes through like EVERY area of your life to go over this same principle. Could have been a lot shorter. Also the mantras were overwhelming. To make mantras work you should really just pick one. Overall good for your spirits and to change your energy. Wasn't bothered by the scripture quotes. Books by Joel osteen are worse.

When you think about being prosperous, do any negative feelings come up? In my childhood, prosperity was looked down on. The “rich” were snobs thinking they were better than everyone else. I’m not sure how that belief came to be in my parents as they were both products of the Great Depression. Somehow, I never quite grasped the concept. My feeling was that people who were prosperous (aka “rich”) worked hard and earned every penny. I saw nothing wrong with that.

In actuality, “prosper

I've read many contemporary inspirational books, including The Secret, so it felt like stepping back in time to be reading this popular book written in the 1960s. Catherine Ponder, considered one of America's foremost inspirational authors, uses prosperity secrets from the Bible, and encourages people to work with vision boards, wheels of fortune for imaging, affirmations (often in archaic language from the Bible), and prayer to achieve prosperity in all aspects of their lives. The strange thing ...more

An inspirational book yet one that is not such a new concept. First published in 1962 I could see this book being totally revolutionary and one that people who are seeking prosperity would follow. I listened to the audio version and although at times the recording was a bit scratchy and even inaudible, I got the gist of what Ms. Ponder was trying to say. It is a very positive book and that is what I really got from this book, the power of positive thinking. In today's world, it is not such a new ...more
I really liked the book but have a hard time giving it more than three stars because of how dated the writing is. You can almost see the fin tailed cars out the window while reading it; the 50's are alive and well in it.

Putting that aside the message in the book is fantastic and one that it is good to hear often: our mental attitude is the great shaper in our reality. I would put this book up there with other great inspirational tomes like "The Richest Man in Babylon," "As a Man Thin

This was a book recommended to me. I wasn't expecting it to be of the 60s, and I really was not expecting it to be so chock full of talk of God and the Bible. Not that it turns me off, but it was not expected. This is also the first prosperity book that I have read.

A very quick read, despite my reading time (I don't have much, incidentally). Much of what the author talks about makes sense to me. You get from the universe what you give to the universe, both good and bad. The affirmati
