MorningCoach.com is doing a series this week on prosperity. Here's founder J.B. Glossinger's introduction to the week.
The thing that struck me about this is that we need to take care of ourselves before we can even hope to expect that the universe is going to take care of us. If we don't take care of ourselves, how can we hope to add any value to our lives? If we don't value ourselves enough to get off the couch, get some exercise, eat healthy food, and make sure our health is in order, then we're basically telling ourselves that we're not worth any other improvements. And that's counterproductive to creating the passion to improve other aspects of our lives.
One of the things about setting goals that I'm learning is that they don't mean anything without passion to achieve them, and that passion comes from what's called "having a big enough WHY." To say it another way, you need to have a big reason to want positive change in your life to give you that burning desire to see your goals through.
For me, my burning passion is to be able to give more time to my family, to be able to give the time to my children that they need in order to be the happiest and most prosperous individuals that they can be, and to give the time to my wife that will make her able to carry out her dreams as well.
And the way I'm going to achieve this is by getting my own business going. Life Force, the company I'm working with, specializes in health and wellness products like Body Balance, TruBoost, and more. By using their products, I've made myself healthier and will continue to make myself healthier through their use. And by working with their business plan, I'm creating residual income, income that will continue to come to me long after I've done the work to show people their products and this great opportunity. That's where the freedom comes into play. (If you're interested in knowing more about these products or this opportunity, let me know either via email or by checking out my business site).
But it's not simply about having the right business idea, by a long shot. I'm taking care of myself via regular exercise (bike commuting most days and regular strength workouts), better nutrition (less carbs, more veggies and fruits), and proper supplementation (the aforementioned Body Balance). And that extra attention to me and my health just makes me feel better about myself and increases my burning desire to achieve those other goals. And it's telling the world that I know I'm worth my life's improvements.
