Warning: Prosperity Conditions Ahead


You crave prosperity in your business. You want the easy enrollments in your programs and workshops, the abundance of product sales, recognition of your expertise by receiving joint venture invitations, and you want the financial success that goes along with changing so many people’s lives.

But why isn’t it happening for you?

Is it the lagging economy? Your message? Your marketing?

Why isn’t prosperity flowing from you and your business?

Prosperity, by definition, means a successful, flourishing or thriving condition. Having a Prosperity Consciousness is about creating awareness of those conditions.

So the reason you aren’t experiencing prosperity starts with your focus on creating the internal and external environments -- which creates a thriving incubator for you to succeed with grace and ease.

You have this ability, no matter what your circumstances are. You can decide that you will take responsibility for creating the conditions to prosper and to flourish.

This is both an external and an internal process. The best marketing ideas in the world won’t work for you if you don’t have a prosperity mindset to begin with. You might say you want more people to buy your product, but then you don’t publish your newsletter regularly or you feel intimidated to share your success stories. I call this “ordering room service and then putting the do-not-disturb sign out.”

You are sending out conflicting messages.

You might not even realize how you get in your own way of your success.

So let’s shift that….

If you take responsibility to internally create the INTERNAL environment for success, where do you start?

Commit to managing your energy on a daily basis. Practice visualizations, gratitude lists, daily reflection time, journaling or inspirational reading. If you want to create an internal environment for prosperity, then this becomes a non-negotiable commitment. You probably know about these types of practices, but are you really doing them consistently?

What one thing are you willing to commit to that will shift your energy, your emotions, or your mindset EVERY DAY? Try it for two weeks. You’ll start to develop a habit that will shift your attitude and perspective. This will change your actions. This simple commitment can change your business for the entire next year!

What’s your ONE thing?
