We all want to be HAPPY. We live to be happy. Some would insist that it is about love, but what does love bring? Happiness! We strive for prosperity. What does prosperity bring? Happiness! The ultimate result is Happiness and Joy!
Prosperity comes with work, determination and focus to follow you goals, hopes and dreams. Hope is inherent in all of us. You can beat a person down but if he/she has a shred of hope in him, he will stand up and fight. Hope, with a hint of any possibility of success can help lead a person to prosperity.
Share your prosperity, share your abundance, share your knowledge, share your acquisitions and most of all share the love that is in your heart. Prosperity is threefold: Material prosperity, Intellectual prosperity, and spiritual prosperity. The acquisition of material and intellectual prosperity may give you temporary pleasures but it does not guarantee you happiness. Reaching for spiritual prosperity touches happiness, it touches love.
For humanity to prosper, we must share, we must be involved. Humans are born selfish! Parents and Adults must teach children to share, to respect and how to be nice. As you chip away at your “rock of selfishness”, sharing becomes easier. Conversations and relationships become less & less difficult.
As you prosper through life you must exercise prudence and responsible ways to attain your wealth and prosperity. There is no need to deprive others in order for you to succeed. Negotiation is a two way street. Being responsible means that it is your obligation to make sure that both parties are satisfied. Always keep in mind and follow the principles of universal stewardship.
Rewards seldom come immediately but you must stay focused, focus will determine your reality. You will always hear sayings about what money can’t get for you. Undeniably that is true. But nothing in this world can be accomplished without funding or trade. Dying for a cause or being a martyr may not cost you any money but promoting the martyrdom definitely will. Without anybody promoting what you died for means that you will soon be forgotten. 😭
The quest for prosperity does not mean the love of money. Without money(funding), the religion of Islam will be defunct. Without money Mohammad couldn’t have gathered his people around him. Christianity would be in the same boat. Even Jesus Christ needed funding to feed his followers. The same is true with all other religions. The Catholic, Mormon, Lutheran churches can’t exist without funding. Even the beggars need funding.
Money (FUNDING) allows us to trade. It allows us to SURVIVE and makes our dreams (goals) come true. People with wealth, health, education and influence can achieve their goals. Do not put down the rich just because you are jealous. Learn from them but do not be like them. Be yourself. Get a better perception of your surroundings. So, go out there and make money. Don’t be a leach. However, when you do go for the money, never Deprive, Insult or Cheat. When you have prospered and have abundance, please SHARE and always LOVE your family and be HAPPY. In our quest for prosperity we need to be responsible with charity and compassion in our demeanor.
In order to prosper we first need to survive. Survival is our basic instinct. To survive we the creatures of God need the basics of: Sustenance, Shelter, Energy, Unity, Propagation, Security, Exploration, Healthcare, Education, Pleasure, Leadership and Communication. Acquire your basic needs to prosper, but always with responsibility and accountability.
The development of technology allows us to manipulate science for the advancements towards prosperity of humanity, but more often than not, at the sacrifice of mother earth. The growing knowledge of science and technology is meant to help in the stewardship of God’s creation and not simply for the prosperity of humanity.
In times of prosperity and happiness, man doesn’t even have second thoughts about the “woes” of life. We become overwhelmed with thoughts of grandeur. So always have compassion in your heart and share your prosperity. God’s plan is simple. He created us. We are to take this gift of Life and live to be prosperous and happy, to love and to share our abundance and be accountable for our thoughts, words, and deeds.
When prosperity goes beyond the individual, and it sits in the hands of corporations and government, responsibility and accountability tends to be redefined for convenience. Governments and business entities have the same obligation to satisfy the needs of their citizens and or customers. They have the social responsibility to care for the environment and humanity while maintaining prosperity.
