Pursuit of Prosperity: What are you worth?

Wednesday, August 6th, 2008

Money is not good or evil. Like everything in life, it is both, and how you perceive it is personal. What is money exactly? We don’t even see it anymore. We swipe a plastic card and somewhere in cyberspace funds are moved electronically from one bank account to another representing someone giving monetary value to someone or something. So the amount of “money” we receive for work or services we perform is simply a representation of what our work or services, and by extension, ourselves are “worth” to someone else.

The more important question is, What are you worth to yourself? If you want to attract prosperity, you have to first believe that you are valuable and that what you give is valuable. Without that first crucial step, you are not going to be attracting enough money to sustain yourself.

Is your life worth living? Then it is worth getting paid, at the very least, enough for necessities. If you believe you’re more valuable than that, you will always be taking steps, even unconsciously, to receive more. If you believe what you do benefits others, you will receive enough money and enough fulfillment to be happy and secure. In other words, it all starts with whether or not you believe you are valuable.
