If this is your first time visiting my site or you haven’t met me before, you might be a little confused as to what I mean by “Purposeful Prosperity”. These two seemingly ambiguous words actually have so much more meaning that you would imagine. So what exactly is Purpose Prosperity and how do you achieve it?
The official definition of Prosperity is “a successful, flourishing, or thriving condition, especially in financial respects”. It can also be synonymous for “good fortune”. While I agree that having financial freedom is one of the key aspects of living a fulfilling and happy life, Purposeful Prosperity is what I call the road you take to get there. Purposeful Prosperity is doing what you love- your passion and what you find meaning in- and working hard at it everyday in order to live a life of financial freedom. Does it sound too good to be true? Well I’m here to tell you that this life is totally achievable if you are willing to take the following steps.
- Believe in your abilities and talents. Cliché right? Well, bear with me and take a moment to think about what this really means. Think about your passion and what gets you excited – do you think you could take that talent and make a successful, flourishing business out of it? Believe me, insecurity is something everyone (including myself) struggles with everyday – but answering “Yes” to this question with confidence and clarity is the first step to living the life of your dreams! It’s also the most important step.
- Draw out a detailed plan. Much like building a skyscraper, building a business requires a detailed blueprint – after all, would you want to step into a skyscraper that wasn’t carefully built? In order to turn your dreams into reality, you need a concrete plan on how to get there. It’s always been in my nature to have a Plan A and a Plan B (and if that doesn’t work- I always have a Plan C in my back pocket). I can proudly say that this habit has gotten me to where I am today. Creating a plan also helps you build the confidence you need to accomplish step three (the scariest step of all).
- Take a leap of faith. If you aren’t living the life of your dreams right now, it’s time to make a change! Once your plan has been drawn out, the hardest part is going through with it. Doubts will fill your mind – Can I do this? What if this is a mistake? Will I regret my decision? Don’t panic, these thoughts are totally normal! However, what’s important is choosing to maintain a mindset of positivity. This isn’t a rash decision: you’ve planned it out! Creating the life of your dreams takes courage, and you have what it takes.
- Be ready for surprises. The road ahead will have many twists and turns – both wonderful and terrifying – but enjoy the ride! Be thankful for the great moments which you have worked so hard for – and for the tough ones because you will come out of them stronger and better. Always remember, the key is comparing yourself now to where you were a week, a month, a year, 10 years ago. Are you happy with the progress you’ve made? If the answer is yes, then you’re right where you want to be.
I hope this outline has given you an idea of what I mean by “Purposeful Prosperity”. It is being in control of your life, your happiness, and your financial freedom! It’s all about taking baby steps and enjoying it every step of the way. These four steps can be applied to any career path, any dream big or small.
