25 Fast Facts About Prosperity

Living Well


  1. Prosperity is not how much money we have, or what we’re wearing or driving, or how expensive our zip code is.
  1. Money and success are the results of prosperity, but they don’t determine it.
  1. What we believe about our deservability, and what we tell ourselves about how much we have, has a bigger effect on our prosperity than how much we have.
  1. If we see ourselves as rich or poor, or at ease or struggling, we’re right.
  1. Habitually unhappy people need an excuse to feel happy; and even when their experience is wonderful, their happiness is short-lived; and they don’t experience prosperity even if they have wealth.
  1. Habitually happy people may become unhappy when life is tough, but soon they’ll say, “Why should I be in a miserable situation and be unhappy, too?” And they experience prosperity under any conditions.
  1. Prosperity is about understanding true value and accomplishing our chosen purpose, instead of worrying about whether we have enough stuff.
  1. We’re prosperous when we trust that Life is designed to support us, and we live accordingly.
  1. Living prosperously means doing whatever we do so well that we can’t do it more effectively, and feeling good about it.
  1. Our experience of life demonstrates what we’re focusing on and whether we’re using our minds to create what we want.
  1. Each area of life affects and reflects another, and it’s not possible to have an effectively working mind if our home is disorganized, or our habits are undisciplined, or our relationships are troubled.
  1. Using our mind and energy effectively doesn’t necessarily mean that we’ll have a lot of money. It does mean that we’ll have enough money and that we’ll be its boss.
  1. We’re prosperous when we tell our resources what to do and use them to cause the results we want.
  1. If we look apprehensively toward income, health, current events and world conditions, we’re actively creating thoughts of insecurity and fear. And we’ll experience the results of what we create.
  1. If we trust that, “I’m where I feel I ought to be, and I’m giving my time, effort and commitment to accomplishing something that ought to be done,” we’re actively creating security.
  1. It’s not naive to believe that our prosperity is secure when we’re busy doing what’s meaningful and what we love to do.
  1. If we’re doing something that should be done even though we don’t have enough money to do it, the universe will provide the means to finance it, and us.
  1. When we see ourselves as abundant, generous and limitless – and prosperous enough to help others – our perception allows vitality to flow into every area of life, including romance, career, health and our wallets.
  1. When we accept life as it is without wishing it were different, Life is what we get, including liveliness, expansion and abundance.
  1. When we resist what happens, believing that life isn’t fair, the result is pain and poverty.
  1. When, instead of struggling to get what we want out of life, we want what we already have, life works effectively in our best interest.
  1. The X-factor that allows prosperity is love.
  1. People who love and are loved will be wealthy no matter how much they have, while people who have a lot of money and don’t love or feel loved will experience poverty no matter what they possess.
  1. If we enjoy life, if we feel good about ourselves, if we appreciate our experience, we’re wealthy no matter what.
  1. When we have enough love to give away, we have wealth beyond measure.
