Most people exist from a two-sided paradigm of "giving" and "taking". And that's okay - it's how most of us have been programmed to operate. Unfortunately, that old paradigm has left most of us bankrupt in terms of abundance in our lives.

It's a scarcity-based paradigm that gets us to "feel bad" or feel like we're being "passed up" when others prosper, succeed or are blessed with great fortune.

What's worse - operating from that old paradigm gets us to curse ourselves by programming our subconscious minds to sabotage any form of prosperity in our own lives.

In recent years however, more and more people have discovered that by shifting from the mindset of "giving and taking" into the paradigm of *creating* - specifically, creating value for others - that they've been able to create true prosperity and abundance in their own lives.

Where do we start if we have the desire to make that shift for ourselves? We start just like those who prospered before us started - By switching from the paradigm of judging, categorizing and classifying others (that drains us energetically and indirectly sabotages our own prosperity) to the paradigm of cultivating the skill of *compassion* that allows us to see the world through the eyes of others. 

Compassion - the most essential of all life skills, not only uplifts us psychologically and spiritually - but gives us the ability to see "beyond the surface" to truly understand others.

Understanding their insecurities, their fears, their frustrations, their struggle is the only path to becoming the type of evolved individual who can not only take away the hurts and pains of others, but can help them achieve the ultimate prosperity of *evolving themselves* towards the same end of becoming a value creator in the world.
