It sounds contradictory, but a prosperity consciousness and material abundance may be mutually exclusive. True prosperity is recognizing and appreciating that you already have everything you need to fulfill your calling in this life.
My riches consist not in the extent of my possessions but in the fewness of my wants.
If wealth will help you carry out your life’s work, then by all means build your bank account.
See where your own energy wants to go, not where you think it should go. Do something because it feels right, not because it makes sense. Follow the spiritual impulse.
Mary Hayes Grieco

In his speaking engagements, Dr. Bernie Siegel relates how he expresses his sympathy to people who have just been diagnosed with cancer, survived a horrible accident, or won the lottery. He is not kidding. Too much too soon can send your life spinning out of control.
In this world there are only two tragedies. One is not getting what one wants, and the other is getting it.
