1. "If we can convince you that the path to financial abundance is simply an emotional path, then, with each hearing of these words, you will breathe out more resistance - and your feelings will improve."
R.) To me, it means that our financial concerns along with all of our emotional concerns are shaped up by how we feel about it. What the book is trying to get across is that progress in life, does not always depend on what you "succeed" in doing physically (Something like a career, where you earn a certain amount of leaves, based on how long and well you spent your hours doing your "job"). But it may just depend on your emotional outlook on life. For example, If you forsee life as nothing but a huge pile of annoyance and frustration, and if you truly believe it to always be that way, Than you will almost always receive those same kinds of realities in return.

R.) I think it basically means, don't worry about how others think of you. This is important to the book because alot of people in society have hundreds of confusions and worries that are never answered truthfully simply because of the lack of understanding and guidence that are transferred daily to their current minds.
4. "When others lash out at you in anger, with words or action, their battle is not with you, but with themselves; and if you do not take their behavior…
