Practical Exercises to Achieve a Rich, Happy and Joyous Life!

By Oreste J. D'Aversa

What would it mean to you to find unlimited financial abundance happiness and joy, beyond your imagination? What if I told you that you have the ability to make that all happen…and more? Would you believe it's all free and you can do it any time you want?


The past is just that - the past. We cannot go back into the past and change the events we have experienced. The past is not an indicator of our future; it is just the past. Yet many times people use the past to project what will happen in their future. By letting go of your past you are opening yourself to unlimited possibilities for a new and exciting future. Imagine your future with you reaching for any goal you desire and achieving that goal. How would that make you feel?

Principle 2: MEDITATION

It is unfortunate there are so many misconceptions about Meditation. Some think that special words are required to be said in a certain way, or that a certain manner of sitting is necessary in order to meditate. All that is needed is silence. The silence need not be outside of you, rather inside of you. In meditation you are seeking the quiet within your mind. By meditating you are aligning your Mind, your Body and your Spirit to function together.


Visualization is your first step to manifesting all that you need, want and desire in life. Even these very words that you read started as visualization before they were created. Whatever you want to create, see it first in your mind, then watch it be created in the physical world. Want more money? See and feel yourself as being wealthy. While this not an instant phenomenon, if you can see it and believe it, you can create it with the power of Visualization.


Call it what you will - God, The Universe or Your Higher Self; the ability to connect to a source higher than your own. This has been the pursuit of humankind since the beginning of recorded history. Why am I here? What is my purpose? Do I matter? The answer to all your questions will come to you when you connect with your Spirituality.

Spirituality can be praying to God, talking with your Angels, Meditating, connecting with nature and many other ways. There are many methods to connect with Spirit. Just choose the one that is right for you and watch for the answers come to you.

Principle 5: EXERCISE

Physical Exercise has far reaching benefits. In exercising the body it promotes health and wellness of the Mind, Body and Spirit. Exercise also gives us another mechanism to deal with stress.

Below are some more health benefits of Exercise:

When we talk about public service we mean helping others. No one becomes successful by themselves. Public service can take on so many different forms. Helping those less fortunate than you by offering your time; or if time is a problem, you can give money. By giving money you increase the circulation of prosperity in your life and the life of others.

Principle 7: LOVE

In discussing Love we do not mean physical love; rather, emotional love, starting with the Love of one's self, one's family, friends, community and ultimately, mankind. If one does not have love for oneself, how can you have Love for others? How can you give away something you do not own?

How does Love help with prosperity? Love what you do and help others achieve their goals, and watch money and financial abundance come to you! In demonstrating your Love for mankind it will come back to you in so many different ways. Love is just another way for prosperity to manifest itself in your life.

The Seven Simple Principles of Prosperity will bless your life with wealth, abundance and happiness. All you need to do is practice these simple exercises and your life will never be the same!
