A life free of the material things can certainly have merit. But there is a difference between material greed and seeking financial comfort for you and your family. You must also discover the path to success that makes the most sense to you.
The Gap between Prosperity and Materialism
Before you can begin following the path to prosperity without guilt and free from fear, you have to first understand that there is a difference between prosperity and gluttony. As with all things, the difference lies in both your actions and your motivations.
Before you read another self-help book on becoming financially secure, before you pray for the lottery to go your way for once, and before you spend another dime on the next sure-fire business opportunity, stop. Ask the question “What am I doing this for?”
The answer may astonish you. Most don’t search for prosperity because they want to sit around and do nothing for the rest of their lives. Being rich to be rich is not everyone’s goal or prime motivator. For the majority of people, the drive to gain financial success is based on a very real desire to eliminate financial stress from their lives.
When you have money worries, there is no way you can relax and enjoy your family. You will fight with your spouse and you will have to forgo spending time with friends at a night out because you can’t afford the gas, the tickets or the dinner. You don’t have the resources to give back to your community and share with your favorite charity as you would like to do.
When That’s Your Motivation, There’s an Opportunity Out There Waiting for You
There is a road leading to success for you and it has nothing to do with a winning lottery ticket. Every one of us has happiness in their future if they just knew what to look for.
Life will always be full of tough decisions. Some people go through life pleased in knowing that the glass is half full; others spend a lifetime lamenting that it’s half-empty. The truth is there is some water in the glass. It is almost never completely full or completely empty. That would be too easy. Now your only job is to decide how you perceive that glass and follow your faith.
Call it God. Call it fate. Call it your ties to the universe. Regardless of which philosophy you happen to believe in, success is sitting at your fingertips. And the only one that can stand between you and that success is you.
