Prosperity Definition: 
Defining What It Means To You

The prosperity definition has evolved over time.  Merriam-Webster defines prosperity as "the condition of being successful or thriving; especially:  economic well-being." 

The origin of prosperity was from the Latin word prosperitias, meaning "doing well".

Often, when we think of the prosperity definition, it relates to thriving financially.
The condition of being successful, even financially, means different things to different people. 

Developing Your Prosperity Definition

If you are to develop a roadmap to your prosperity, the first opportunity is to discover/create what prosperity means to you

Does your prosperity definition rely totally on money?  If so, how much?  What values do you attach to it?

Is prosperity about rich relationships?  How much time you have on your hands?  Doing what you love?  A deep spiritual connection? 

You can use the dictionary as the start of defining prosperity, and then you get to create what it means for you.  You have a voice in the matter.

For me, prosperity looks like making a 6 figure income, living in a home I love, enjoying the friendships I have, having the finances to attend as many spiritual development workshops as I want while being able to support others to do the same, and loving what I do.

Putting Your Prosperity Vision And Definition Into Action

Once you define what prosperity looks like for you, it is time to chart your path

It's useful to be specific as you will attract what you put your attention on. 

You can even turn this into a game where you look money as ONE way to measure your ability to BE prosperous.  This can be fun!  What other ways would you "measure" your ability to be prosperous?

Before we get too far, let's take the first step...

If you allow yourself to go inward, what actions would you be taking as a prosperous person (using your definition)?  What kinds of people would be around you?  What would your environment be like?

Does this vision fulfill you?  If so, the first step is to write down what prosperity is for you and the values you attach to it.  Then, it is time to create a plan of action.

If this vision doesn't fulfill you?  It's an opportunity to adjust your values and/or allow yourself to continue exploring what actions you would be taking as a prosperous person.

Removing The Barriers

Are you stuck?  If you are stuck and you just don't know what prosperity is for you, that is okay.  Not knowing is a great place to start.  You have the opportunity to play with what prosperity is for you.  Try it on like a coat.  You are not stuck with anything that you put together.  You can always change it, and modify it. 

This is more like an opportunity to create art vs. sentencing yourself to a particular way of being and doing.  Keep playing or use one of the tools (visualizing, meditation, forgiveness, etc) to help you create your masterpiece of prosperity.
