How does Soul Purpose tie into greater prosperity? First, understand that prosperity is not something you possess. It is a state of being. It is living the happiest, healthiest, and most fulfilling life imaginable without worrying about money.
It begins by opening up to the greatest human life value that exists: the discovery of your Soul Purpose.
Secondly, realize that within a world of seemingly continuous cause and effect, value creation is the cause, and money is the effect. When you create value for others, dollars will surely follow back to you.
What greater value can you offer to the world than living that which you were specifically created for? What else would bring you more enjoyment than knowing you were doing that which you loved to do every single day?
What else could you possibly do to have more fun, create more value, and earn the most money from doing than your Soul Purpose? Doesn’t that resonate with you? This is the connection between spiritual and material wealth.
I always had an inborn ability to speak to people in ways that seemed to uplift their happiness and productivity. When I did so some inner compass seemed to “click in” that just felt right. Conversely, when I denigrated someone I felt terrible, even if it was a small slight.
For years I thought that this ability to uplift was just coincidence and certainly nothing that could ever become my life work. I never dreamed people would pay me for it.
In my first career as a musician, other band members sought me out for advice. Later on in the corporate world other salespeople, and even the owner of the company, did the same thing.
Once I surrendered to the fact that I was a natural teacher, I began to study the world’s great productivity and spiritual teachers. Soon a niche appeared that I instantly recognized and filled. As I did so, the level of value I was able to create was so high that demand for my services increased effortlessly.
I realized that value to others must be the primary concern, and that only then could money return in greater quantities.
A new level of financial abundance flowed back to me that verified the increased value that one giving their Soul Purpose receives. I now experience clients routinely paying me fifteen thousand dollars a year to take my training. I never cease being humbled by this.
By surrendering what the world had convinced me I had to do only to make money, I became what God built me to be—a wisdom teacher.
To scarcity paradigm thinkers, money is power; to prosperity paradigm thinkers, wisdom is power. This wisdom is the recognition that you have a specific purpose here on Earth. It is this purpose that will create the most value for others, and money will follow.
This wisdom is inside of you. It is something you are and it also is something that will lead you to great happiness because it’s something you already love to do.
You have a Soul Purpose that the world needs desperately. By living it you will create enormous value, and in turn will naturally receive prosperity. If you act responsibly with this prosperity, you will achieve freedom in every aspect of your life.
