At Succeed On Purpose, we acknowledge that what prosperity means is unique to each person. But, even if you acknowledge success doesn’t fit into a one-size-fits-all box, determining your own version of success isn’t always simple.
Take this quiz to discover what prosperity means to you!
Let’s do a quick exercise. When you think of the word “prosperity,” what pops into your mind? Take a minute to think about your life when you imagine yourself as "prosperous."
What did you picture?
Was it riches or a fancy job title? Or perhaps you’re on an island somewhere or living in a luxurious penthouse. For many, this is the pinnacle of success and something they strive for.
But not everyone wants that…
At Succeed On Purpose, we acknowledge that success is unique to each person. Maybe success for you is running a small company that provides a stable lifestyle and makes an impact. Or it’s being present and raising strong, kind children. Or it’s simply feeling comfortable in your own skin.
Have you ever thought about your definition of success? Not the world’s definition. It doesn’t have to be about money in the bank or social media followers, unless that matters to you. You have your own definition of success.
Your Definition of Prosperity
Merriam-Webster defines prosperity as “the condition of being successful or thriving.”
Being successful and thriving is different for everyone. But, even if you acknowledge success doesn’t fit into a one-size-fits-all box, determining your own version of success isn’t always simple. You may have spent your whole life living up to others’ expectations. Maybe your parents wanted you to become a doctor. Or you live in a neighborhood where society doesn’t expect you to make much of yourself. Perhaps your family expects you to settle down and become a parent or take over the family business.
But what do YOU want?
It’s not always easy to get the others’ voices out of your head and isolate your own, authentic voice. So, how do you define success?
At Succeed On Purpose, we have discovered that everyone has the same thing at the core of their success – their purpose. If you can identify your purpose, you get clarity. And if you can live in alignment with your purpose, you then set yourself on a path to achieve whatever you believe to be success.
So how do you get in alignment with your purpose? At Succeed On Purpose, we’ve developed a formula for creating abundance and prosperity. We teach this in our program, The Prosperity Challenge. As a preview, we’d like to give you some insights using the steps below so you can begin to create the life you want.
The Steps to Activate Prosperity
1: Know What We Want is Possible
For many of us, we don’t believe we can have what we desire. Believing you can create what you want is largely about your mindset. We teach you to develop the skill and habit of pulling yourself out of any hopeless or negative place so you are open to possibilities you might otherwise be closed off to. Once you’ve mastered putting yourself in an optimistic and open mindset, you are not only open to new ideas, but you actually seek them out.
2: Slow Down and Connect - Use your ABCs
Sometimes we need tools to release negativity. Remove energy blocks using this simple process.
3: Clarify Your Desire
Once you’ve cleared your energy and focus on the present moment, it’s much easier to identify what you want, and then you just have to ask for it.
You can ask for a specific thing, like money, a job, or a relationship. And although there's debate about whether it’s best to be general or specific, it really doesn’t matter. The most important thing is that you feel good about the desire and the desire is something you actually want or need. Our research has confirmed that the more we want something, the easier it is to create it.
You can also ask fora solution or guidance, such as what job to apply for, whether it is the right time to start a purposeful business, or how to address a faltering relationship. If you want a solution, it can be co-created.
4: Focus Your Energy
Before acting, take a few minutes to focus your energy on the most positive thoughts and emotions.
Just visualize having what you desire. How does it feel? Or write down the sentence, “I’m so happy and grateful now that (fill in the blank)”.
Feel what it feels like to have it. Feel grateful before it comes.
Focusing your energy before acting keeps us in the flow or receiving rather than trying to MAKE something happen.
5: Take Inspired Action
Co-creating is the ability to remain open to what the universe has to offer rather than being closed off from inspiration.
Co-creation asks us to do our part by following “inspired next steps,” which will feel like guidance from our spiritual counterpart, whether you call it God, Creator, the Universe, Source, or something else.
If you are open to possibilities, you will know what action to take and when, and it won’t feel like an effort.
Once we know the next step, simply take that action. Be ready to move forward. You can’t just sit back and wait for opportunities to be served to you. We cannot win the lottery if we don't buy a ticket!
6: Put It All Together & Repeat
Go at your own speed: take baby steps, giant leaps, or anything in-between. Take a break once or twice a day and reconnect (ABCs) to re-evaluate your plan, so you’re moving forward in alignment and staying in the flow.
