Living a life of abundance involves three behaviors. And each is necessary to manifest the whole picture.
The first behavior is learning.
Working on you every day. Developing skills, collecting knowledge and most importantly, gaining wisdom.
The second behavior is earning.
All true prosperity is a value-for-value equation. So you must go out and create value for the people around you. If it were as easy as sitting on the sofa watching The Secret, everyone would be a multi-billionaire. Your prosperity is out there, waiting for you to draw upon it, but you have to earn it. And it's earned by creating value for the universe.
And the final behavior is yearning.
Because you must want more. There are a lot of lack mind viruses about money and material things out there. And a big one is “being happy with what you have.” Let’s look at that a little deeper.
Certainly happiness is a choice. You choose to be happy whether you earn $13,000 a year, $30,0000 a year, or $30,000,000 a year. So there is some truth in that statement. But don’t let it take you off the path…
One of the wittiest things I ever heard comes from Samuel Butler. He says, “All progress is based upon a universal innate desire on the part of every organism to live beyond its income.” Now put that in a prosperity context and it’s not about going into debt, but actually creating more value to the universe, which increases your income. Your desire for more causes you to become more.
Your path to prosperity involves doing more, having more, and especially becoming more. For to fail to do so would be a sin. We live in the most exciting time in human history. Our access to knowledge, our resources for innovation, and opportunities for personal development are greater than they have ever been before.
For many of you reading this blog, in your lifetime you will have the opportunity to buy an underwater condo with a view of the coral reef, play in a virtual reality holo-suite, and vacation on the moon. For you to choose to stand pat is an insult to the Intelligence that created you.
Your desire for something greater is Infinite Intelligence knocking on your door, challenging you to become more. Now as you saw if you watched this month’s virtual prosperity seminar, it’s not about an insatiable pursuit of things...
As your consciousness develops, your desires evolve as well. They will become less about you and more about service and contribution.
Yes, be happy with what you have. And tap into that divine dissatisfaction that pulls you forward to new and greater things. That is the joyous path of prosperity – learning, earning and yearning.
Ain’t it great!
