What feels prosperous?

This month, we’re tackling Prosperity and family life. Two of the most profound lessons I ever learned around prosperity are:

1. What you appreciate, appreciates.

and

2. When you let go of trying to get more of what you don’t really need,
it frees up oceans of energy to make a difference with what you have.
When you make a difference with what you have, it expands.
– Lynn Twist author of “The Soul of Money”

Those two simple ideas shifted my whole way of thinking about money and prosperity.

What I learned was that when I appreciated (thought about, talked about, cried about…) my lack of money and worrying about how I was going to get more, I was getting a whole lot more lack and worry.

Yet when I shifted into appreciating what I had, and giving some of it away to support people and causes I believed in and felt inspired by, more would come. The more I said “thank you” and celebrated what I received and joyfully gave some of what I had, the more I had to celebrate and give. I’m completely amazed every time I see and feel it happen.

The more I give, the more I get.
The more I appreciate the more there is to appreciate.

So try this:

Today I want you to take the time to appreciate your wealth and good fortune. Whatever it is in your life that brings up feelings of prosperity, acknowledge it and appreciate it.

To get us rolling in the direction of feeling more playful with our prosperity I challenge you to make a list of all the ways you are RICH! Go for at least ten. And if you are feeling really inspired, keep writing until your hand hurts!

I’ll start…

  1. I have been breathing clean air my entire life!
  2. I have a device to read emails like this!
  3. I’m alive!
  4. I woke up this morning!
  5. I ate food this week that made me happy!
  6. I have working plumbing!
  7. I have access to transportation!
  8. I can easily communicate with people I love who are thousands of miles away.
  9. I have food in the fridge.
  10. And on and on…

Again, by doing this, you train your brain to focus on the inherent goodness of simply being alive. And remember, true prosperity is the by-product of being here now, feeling massive love, choosing your thoughts and counting your blessings. So start counting!

Here’s to you and your massively prosperous life,
Carrie

      Europa een keuze? Niet al te lang geleden konden Nederland en Frankrijk vrijwillig stemmen voor een Europese Grondwet, en allebei die landen stemden toen nogal overtuigend tegen, waarna het toch is doorgegaan. En hoe &#1gi6;vrijwill12  zouden de Grieken het aan hen opgelegde begrotingsregime zien?

    , it is all perspective in my opinion, when everyone wa2n7#8s1&;t doing it, it was a problem, but now everyone has to do it just to survive in the sport and allow their bodies to recover. Under that scenario, is it really such a bad thing to help your body produce some more red blood cells?
