This is an excerpt from my next book on overcoming a personal financial crisis, I hope you enjoy it!
What is Prosperity Really?
Prosperity is defined by the dictionary as “a successful, flourishing, thriving condition, especially in financial respects. Good fortune”.
Whether we realize it or not, this definition doesn’t sit well with most of us. It feels a little bit “icky”, doesn’t it? Why? Because it mentions “good fortune”, which could be translated as “luck”. People do not feel in control of their own luck.
It makes prosperity sound like something that is bestowed on some people by an invisible and arbitrary being who wields a magic wand that showers ‘too much’ luck on some people (everyone but us), not enough luck on other people. It implies that that we have no say in the matter, that we have little control.
If you aren’t luck enough to be lucky, you’re screwed! Right? Subconsciously we take issue with this definition because few people feel lucky, and fewer yet feel that they can influence their good fortune. But nothing could be further from the truth!
Developing an understanding of the spiritual principles of abundance (e.g. Law of attraction and Deliberate Creation) is a way to actually create good fortune. If it can be tested, applied, and the effects observed, then it isn’t luck, its science. Hence the science of Deliberate Creation.
But from an outsiders /external perspective, there is no way to tell if a person is intentionally applying Universal laws or not. But there results are telling. Those who really are in alignment with the energy of prosperity know when they are, and they then understand why things “took so long” to start flowing into their lives.
Prosperity to me is an overall state of well-being that embraces all aspects of your life. But because money, finances, and the exchange of goods and services is so pervasive in our society, for most of us, our financial state is thought of first as the primary indicator of the presence or absence of prosperity.
Prosperity is never absent; it surrounds us everywhere, at all times. It is only our inability to notice it, perceive it, appreciate it, and come into alignment with it that is the challenge, or the “problem”.
The fact is, there is no problem, we just choose to see certain situations as problems, when in fact they are usually nothing but new experiences that through prior conditioning that we come to view as bad, and therefore “challenging”. But when we loosen our grip on the need for a particular outcome, then we gain the ability to relax, appreciate, savor, and grow from the experiences that seem to be nothing but problems or challenges.
Some people are so challenged, in other words, so fixated on the need for a particular outcome, that they would rather commit suicide than face an outcome that they fear. Many people actually do commit suicide in the face of financial ruin, because they unfortunately view it as “ruin” of themselves.
In fact, their Self was always, safe, sounds, and prosperous, but they allowed the facts of their current experience to overshadow their connection with Source Energy, and they accepted a substitute for prosperity as the real thing. When the substitute was removed from them, the resulting state of lack, of failure, was too deep and they sought to escape it via suicide. This is a waste of opportunity, and altogether unnecessary.
These are extreme cases, but I challenge you to look within yourself, and look for opportunities to appreciate all that you have, and to realize that prosperity is a mindset, not a financial state. One follows the other, so make sure you recognize the true cause and effect. Aloha!

Recently I had the opportunity to interview Joan Sotkin, a pioneering prosperity coach with over 20 years of experience helping people get to the root of their money issues. Joan runs Prosperity Place, which is a great resource for people who want to be more prosperous. Joan really strives to help people overcome the limiting thoughts and beliefs that nearly everyone has when it comes to money.
She is also a huge proponent of people learning more about personal finance, investing, and managing money. Because, after all, if you can’t manage the money you have now, how can you expect Source Energy to bring you more? We must demonstrate financial discipline and forethought before we can really experience additional income in any significant way.
You can learn more about Joan at Prosperity Place where you can find her excellent ebook: Build Your Money Muscles. You can also find more information there about Joan’s free newsletter, podcasts, and free teleclasses.
