Are you willing to prosper in life?
Many people have a feeling that prosperity and spirituality cannot co-exist when, in fact, the two cannot truly exist apart. Some think that, at some level, it is "more spiritual" to live in scarcity and lack, to sacrifice and do without. Is there any of that thinking holding you back?
There are a few fundamentals to consider. First, do you believe that living should be natural, spontaneous and enjoyable? To be fully conscious, intelligent, imaginative, intuitive, and doing the right thing at the right time is the goal. To posses a keen anticipation about what you CAN create in life gives you a great reason to get up in the morning, doesn't' it?
To prosper is "to thrive, to flourish, to be successful in every way". Are you willing to entertain this concept as natural rather than as something you have to strive and struggle to achieve?
When you are - spiritually aware - mentally competent - emotionally balanced - self-responsible (mature) - physically vital - in harmony with the rhythms of nature - enjoying mutually supportive relationships or succeeding in your worthy ventures…
…YOU ARE PROSPERING.
Each of these are available to you if you will take the necessary steps.
The first step is to clearly understand your major purpose in life. What are you about? What do you stand for? Without a sense of meaningful purpose, you may have a reasonably comfortable lifestyle, but you may neither feel satisfied nor experience all that life has to offer. Switching your thinking from "What's in it for me?" to "What do I have to contribute?", is a good start.
Then think about your unique talents and abilities? Fully explore these. It is not arrogance to know that you do something well. What are you passionate about? Can you use your unique talents and abilities in the pursuit of your passion? Yes, and it is probably the best, and most satisfying, place to use them, too!
What are the most important, significant and valuable things in your life? Recently I was giving a seminar and I asked the folks, "What would you be willing to burn at the stake for?" A bit extreme but they did get the point. If something—a principle, relationship, belief--is truly valuable to you that needs to be demonstrated by you every minute, doesn't it? It cannot be a principle, relationship or belief that is held or lived only when it's convenient or expedient. You have seen this and it is not pretty!
Living your life in integrity with what you value puts you on the direct path to prosperity in all areas of your life. What better time to get these ducks in a row than NOW?
