Prosperity does not just happen. It evolves from your developing a deep appreciation of who you are and of what you deserve to experience in your life. Self-perception, what you believe about yourself, is the basis for building your prosperity empire.

If the foundations are weak or tottering, nothing will save the building from eventual collapse. But if you take the time and put in the effort to dig deep foundations of self-worth and self-trust, nothing, absolutely nothing, can destroy the prosperity edifice you can build and maintain in your life.

The question is, how do you build this solid foundation, how do you develop such a sound sense of self-esteem and deservedness? There really is no secret method or esoteric mystery here. In fact, you already know who you are. You intuitively understand how powerful and creative you are, but you may need a little nudge to get started on your journey of re-discovering, or un-covering your inner power and right to manifest all the wealth, happiness and prosperity you deserve.

First, let's define what we mean by prosperity. It is not simply heaps of money or business success, although, if these are high on your values list, they will be included in your prosperity arsenal. Holistic wealth is all about finding a happy balance and sense of well-being in four key areas of your life.

Your spiritual and emotional well-being is the most important area in which you need to feel comfortable. You really can learn to love who you are and trust your wisdom and power to create the kind of life you desire.

In the area of relationships, you know you are happiest when you love, share and care for those around you, your spouse, your children, friends, work associates and so on. We need social support and the best way to receive it is to give it to others.

Your health and fitness is important if you intend to create a level of happiness and prosperity that reaches every area of your life. Look after your body, feed it with fresh, healthy food, and give it plenty of water, exercise and rest, and you will be physically energized to excel in every area of your life.

Financial abundance is often the focus when we speak of prosperity, but money is just one more area in your life in which you want to achieve balance and well-being. To be truly rich is to need less in order to be happy. More is not always better, especially if some other important area of prosperity in your life must suffer.

Prosperity involves creating a happy, empowering mindset in which anything is possible, everything happens for a good reason and at the perfect time, and life offers you a hand up as you climb the ladder of happiness.
