Purpose, Prosperity, and Commitment (Jory Fisher)

What comes to mind when you hear the word “prosperity”?  Probably money and lots of it, but what about good health, rich relationships, and work you enjoy?  What if you included them in your definition—and led a deliciously prosperous life?

Close your eyes and imagine.

Lovely vision, isn’t it?

Author and speaker Edwene Gaines designates finding and following your divine purpose as the fourth Spiritual Law of Prosperity.  Using the expanded definition of the word, she says we must find our purpose and follow it with commitment if we want to live truly prosperous lives.

Our dreams, our visions, and discernment of our divine purpose help us become who we’re meant to be and achieve what we’re meant to do.

“The greatest achievement was at first, and for a time, a mere dream. The oak sleeps in the acorn, the bird waits in the egg; and in the highest vision of the soul, a waking angel stirs.  Dreams are the seedlings of realities.”  ~James Allen

“Where there is no vision (divine guidance), the people perish.” Proverbs 29:18

“Everyone has been made for some particular work, and the desire for that work has been put into every heart.”  ~Rumi

As a business owner, do you know whom you’re meant to serve and how you’re meant to serve them?  If you’re not clear on your divine purpose, it will be difficult—if not impossible—for you to make the biggest, most meaningful difference you’re meant to make.

Find your purpose.  Follow through with commitment.

And enjoy abundance, prosperity, and peace.

To your success,

  1. Good discussion of the definition of prosperity, Jory. I think it’s the emotion behind the affirmation, thought or prayer that activates it. It takes a lot of emotion to counterbalance all those negative thoughts most people entertain! One thing I’ve noticed is that it’s a lot easier to manifest out of pain than out of joy. I’m sure that’s because pain is so immediate, so compelling – pain guarantees commitment. It takes a lot of consciousness raising to be that committed to joy! Come visit my blog. You could touch a lot of hearts there.

  2. Thank you for your insight and for taking the time to read and comment on my blog. Edwene will be a guest on Heart & Soul on June29th. I hope you’ll listen to her wisdom and humor.
