On Obtaining More Prosperity 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.  


  1. Take care of your health always. Eat the right food and take what's necessary to maintain your healthy lifestyle.

How Essential Oils Are Manly

The real man's toolkit: essential oils and duck tape.  "Yeah, I use essential oils." Silence. This is the normal reaction I get why I, as an adult male human, tell other men that I use essential oils instead of things like aspirin, Tums or Rolaids, Ben Gay, or any number of other pharmaceuticals. There's this impression out there that essential oils are girly, I guess, or that they're like most other products that are primarily for making things smell nicer: they're for the ladies. Or even that they're new agey and woo-woo - to be used only when listening to Windham Hill CDs and cleansing your chakras. Real men don't care about smells, right? They thrive on sweat, piss and vinegar. They belch, fart, and otherwise release smells into the air that are simultaneously hilarious and relieving to the body. They get upset because their wives bought decorative soaps and guest towels for the bathroom that they're not allowed to use. They frown a

Taking on a Challenge: Is It Worth It?

Over the past 30 days, I've been doing one of these internet meme athletic challenges, in this case the #PlankChallenge.  I'm sure you've seen them.  These are the challenges where someone posts a picture like this: It's pretty easy to see how this works.  You basically just do the prescribed amount of reps/time for the exercise in question for each day, and then announce your progress on social media using the indicated hashtag.   I think these are a great idea, but not necessarily for the reason you think they are. Yes, they help you get in better shape, especially when it's a challenge on a core muscle group like planks above.  That can't be denied.  I will take issue with the amount of rest this particular challenge allows you, however.  Some of these challenges will actually do a hard day, then drop back to an easier day as a rest of sorts... the one I just completed did not do this, as you can see.  That got to be pretty tough in the second ha

Optimize and Socalize your Reading List with Goodreads

It sort of goes without saying that if you want to know more, you have to learn more.  And despite the influx of blogs, podcasts, videos, e-newsletters, etc. as sources of great knowledge in any and all topics, nothing beats the good old-fashioned book. Format of books aside (paper or digital is entirely up to you), books provide a complete look at a topic as an author intended - something that short blogs and random articles can't do.  If you're learning a personal development system, for example, you'll generally get an entire system to work with.  If you're learning an exercise program, you'll get the whole program at once and always have it at your fingertips.  The value and benefit of books can't really be overstated.   However...  The love of books generally translates into the creation of reading lists.  And reading lists can take a number of forms - from a group of books physically sitting on a shelf to detailed topic-driven lists of books
