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.

Caffeine and Cortisol - a 30-Day Experiment

No Caffeine for Me! Today, I began upon a 30-day experiment to reduce my cortisol levels by removing coffee from my diet. The goal is to see how it might be affecting my cognitive function and my belly fat. Cortisol is a hormone that is related to stress .  At a very basic level, cortisol is created as a response to stressors in our environment.  Back when we were still chucking spears at deer and chasing down antelope, cortisol was helping to preserve our lives by giving us quick energy by signalling to our livers that it was time to engage in a process known as gluconeogenesis. This process is basically the breakdown of amino acids, the building blocks of protein, into glucose - one of the two monosaccharides (the healthy one) that our bodies use for fuel. Picture this - you're walking across the street, enjoying the day, when suddenly some inattentive driver tries to turn and doesn't see you.  Your heart rate speeds up, and you get a little burst of speed to quickly sprint o

More on Journaling: So many tools...

Journaling was long a habit that I wanted to pick up but just never did.  And it was never because I didn't believe in its worth, it was that I just never built the habit or found the proper method that worked best for me.  I'd start it for a while, be enthusiastic about it, and then lose the habit when something else came up and interrupted me.   That's all changed for me now, as I look forward each morning and night to journaling in my newest tool I've found.  But that search has clued me in to a ton of great journaling tools that might help you as you're looking for that great push to get you into the journaling habit!   The Five-Minute-Journal:    This is obviously   the one I've adopted .  It's simple, it's quick, and it does the trick.  I won't expand into stuff I've already talked about with this in the two posts I've done on this fantastic tool.  But let's talk about some of the other aspects of the Five-Minute Journal.

Ditching the Chair Update: Lack of Use Raises Its Head

I'm just starting day three of my standing desk experiment and so far I really like it - though a couple of challenges are showing up. As you may recall, I pulled one of my cubicle cupboards off the wall a couple days ago and am using it as a standing desk platform.  It's wide, deep enough, and more than sturdy enough for the limited use I put it through up there.  Also, I keep all that storage.  So win-win-win.  I'm fortunate that it's at exactly the right height for my purpose.   So here's how it's developed over the past couple of days.  My monitors are set apart about 16 inches and that's nice because it gets my neck moving back and forth more.  I was having some issues with my neck/back between my shoulder blades being tight and causing me headaches, and that has gone away.  I think that having my attention locked onto one place all day was not helping there, and setting them apart more has made me move it more.  Granted, I tend to lose my mou
