I went to the library on Friday in the hopes of getting some work done.
While I managed to slog through a newsletter for Propelle, it was an epic battle to stay focused and on task. Instead of fighting it, I got up and browsed the shelves, looking for some interesting books to bring home.
After about 20 minutes, I started to think I would be going home empty handed. In a last ditch effort, I swung by the “new and interesting” section at the front of the library and BAM. I found two books that I wanted to bring home.
The first, Wicked Charms* by Janet Evanovich and Phoef Sutton.
The second, Easy Breezy Prosperity* by Emmanuel Dagher.
I decided to start with book #2 and am officially 20 pages in. Dagher has you do exercises throughout, aimed at helping you tap into your own abundance and prosperity. The one I spent time doing last night — The Quality List — focused on the deeper picture of our desires or the reasons we want what we want.
It’s not enough to say, I want a 6-figure salary or a million views on my blog each month.
You have to go deeper.
I want a 6-figure salary because it will help me feel stable, allow me to surround myself with beauty, and give me freedom to travel and explore.
I want a million views on my blog each month so that I can help, teach, and inspire as many people as possible.
While this wasn’t my first time doing an exercise like this, it was enlightening and helped me see some patterns in my desires and connected some new dots. Also interesting to note that very few of the things on my list had to do with money itself and everything to do with what I believe money can provide for me.
20 things that I want more of in my life.
Now to spend some time exploring where these things already exist in my life so that I can continue to nurture those. To quote Dagher,
Focusing on the inner qualities we want, instead of the out specifics, opens us up to blessings beyond anything we could have ever imagined for ourselves.
