How do we achieve and maintain prosperity from the practical, financial and/or professional perspective?
“Prosperity” comes from “prosper,” which means “to succeed in an enterprise or activity.”
One key to prosperity is to move through experiences rather than fighting against them. Bring your inner wisdom, intuition, and instincts into every decision and strategic action you take. It is a process and an ever unfolding journey full of incredible opportunities if you are open to them.
Fears, worry, negative thinking, and beliefs about “lack of” create constriction rather than expansion. We begin thinking, “Ok, I really need more money . . . clients . . . time . . .” When we feel this sense of urgency, it is often accompanied by stress, tension and fear. Making important decisions from this place rarely goes well.
By knowing how well you are doing in the following areas you are able to circumvent stress, tension and fear, achieve your goals and improve your prosperity.
- Planning/goal setting
- Marketing which leads to new clients
- Repeat sales
- Financial-cash flow, debt, income and expenses
- Quality-The quality of the products and services you deliver is the lifeblood of your business
- Organization-Time management and staying out of overwhelm, for example
In addition, focus on all that is rich in your life—friends, colleagues, loved ones, children, pets, your accomplishments, things you have created, and the beauty of nature. Invite all that is truly meaningful and joyful to take center stage in your heart and mind. Remember, prosperity requires self-confidence and a positive self-image.
