Money is involved in true prosperity but it is not the single measure of it. I believe all of us have a yearning to be prosperous. However, I bet most of us have a distorted view of what true prosperity means. The chief reason of our distorted view is the adoption of our views from the world; thus ending up with the wrong worldview of what prosperity means.
1. What is true prosperity? True prosperity is achieving a balance of the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual components of our humanity. True prosperity lasts and multiplies.
2. Can prosperity be attained by anyone? Yes. Caution here! Significant changes are required to achieve it.
3. Why should I be prosperous? Because you can. Because you have the right to it. The world needs more prosperous people so the world can be more balanced. Go for it; the journey will be exhilarating.
4. How do I go about being prosperous? Start by taking a trip inside yourself. Be willing to accept what you find and have the courage to face reality and start changing. Assess your true self in the four components of prosperity. Learn all you can about it and pursue it, stay with it until the day you die.
5. How do I know when I am being prosperous? You will feel it. You will get up every morning with a zest for life like never before.
6. What do I do with my prosperity? You feel just as good giving as you do receiving something. You feel joy in loving someone and the same level of joy when someone loves you. You feel the same level of joy in learning as you do teaching. You will feel the same joy giving as you do receiving money. Well, you get the point…
7. Abundance vs scarcity. The universe provides an abundance of prosperity for everyone. Why don’t you go out and be prosperous?
Thank you for reading and reflecting on today’s nuggets. Share them with others.
We make a living by what we get; we make a life by what we give. Be a giver in a world of takers.
Be blessed and be a blessing to others.
