Abundance and Prosperity
abundance: plentifulness of the good things of life; prosperity.
prosperity: the state of being prosperous.
synonyms: success, profitability, affluence, wealth, opulence, luxury, the good life, milk and honey, (good) fortune, ease, plenty, comfort, security, well-being
Have you ever heard that you should not mix business with pleasure?
Well, why not? What if your business actually was your pleasure (or one of your pleasures)?
I believe that is possible. And so do the upcoming speakers at the Real Estate Association of Puget Sound (REAPS). Why?
Because we live that vision almost daily.
See, I believe that you probably became a real estate investor or an entrepreneur because you thought it would create something different in the way that you live your life, your lifestyle.
Some of you have found it, while many of you are thinking that real estate investing seems to consume just as much if not more of your time as your job! Even without the "security" of a consistent paycheck.
Believe it or not, there are likely to be habits that you are practicing from your past way of life that are getting in the way of your success at whatever entrepreneurial pursuit you may have now.
Bad habits, like procrastination, distractions, lack of focus, busy work, lack of belief in success, may be self-limiting. You may be spending time with negativity, or with people that do not believe in you.
Good habits like clear goal-setting, focus on income-producing activity, balance in all important aspects of your life, and a success-oriented mindset are what are necessary to succeed. Surround yourself with like-minded people, and refuse to follow the herd.
A purely economic or financial focus may be detrimental or other important aspects of your lifestyle, whether physical health, spiritual or social relationships. I am excited to hear more from the Lifeonaire experts who will be speaking at the REAPS May meeting, as they preach that lifestyle is an important consideration in anyone's personal pursuits. A balanced approach to life may result in an increase in both prosperity, abundance and happiness. And isn't that a worthy goal?
May you lead a happy and abundant life!
