What Is Prosperity And How Do You Get It?

Pretty much everyone wants prosperity, and a lot of people spend a lifetime chasing after it, but what is it really? And, why is it that so few people ever actually catch up with prosperity, when so many want it?

What Is Prosperity?

While each person defines prosperity from his or her own point of view, most people chase after it. Merriam-Webster dictionary defines prosperity as the condition of being successful, or the condition of thriving, and it notes that prosperity is typically indicative of economic well-being.

Take a moment to think about what prosperity means to you.

  • If you had to sit down and tell someone what prosperity means to you, what would you say?
  • Would you say it is having a hundred dollars in your pocket to spend on anything you want?
  • A thousand?
  • A million?
  • More?
  • Is it having a collection of rare cars?
  • Beautiful jewelry?
  • Acres of land?
  • There is no right or wrong answer, it's different for each of us.

How to Attract Success

Almost everyone can picture some benchmark in his or her mind of what a prosperous life would look like, but how many ever achieve their dreams of prosperity?

  • If so many people want to be prosperous, why don't they just do it?
  • Is it really that hard?
  • Is that millionaire you saw on TV last night really smarter or better looking than everyone else?
  • Are they just lucky?
  • Should you lower your standards to make them easier to reach?
  • How can you become prosperous without reducing your vision of prosperity?

According to some of man's earliest written teachings, wisdom that has been passed down through the ages and adhered to by some of modern history's wealthiest, most successful people, there are some things you can do to turn yourself into a magnet for good things and prosperity.

Always Attracting the Positive

Positivity is one of the first keys to success, and one of the hardest if you're hitting a bumpy spot in life, but everything good begins with a sense of gratitude. It can be hard, but there is some good to be found in almost every bad situation.

  • Try to find the good in whatever you're facing, and focus on it with a sense of gratitude. Even something as difficult as losing a job or a spouse leaving a marriage - find the opportunity in it - it's there if you choose to see it -and focus on the good because anger and fear block your ability to attract the positive - the prosperity you want.
  • Take a pass it forward approach to helping others to create a broad ripple of positive energy. Starting the wave of kindness - the ripple effect - will do you even more good than it does the people you help.
  • Even doling out the smallest kindnesses make a huge difference in your ability to attract prosperity. For an example - if you notice the person ahead of you at the grocery store is a few cents or a dollar short on their bill, and you have it to spare, help them. It will help you far more than it ever helps them, because giving tells your spirit that you have more than enough. Then, your subconscious takes over and acts accordingly, attracting more prosperity to you. Plus, even if fate never hands you an extra penny to make up for it (but it will) it feels really amazing to help someone in need.
