“The men and women who practice the foregoing instructions will certainly get and stay forever rich in all areas. In this process, we must stay conscious to that fact that any form of wealth received will be in exact proportion to the definiteness (solidification) of our vision, the fixity (strength, stability) of our purpose, the steadiness of our faith, and the depth (saturation) of our gratitude.”
-Wallace Wattles, “The Science of Getting Rich
Many times, people turn to Spirituality to help resolve their own sense of fear and uncertainty about what the future holds.
Well, there is good news, and bad news:
The bad news is, no one knows what is going to happen in the future.
The good news is, no one KNOWS what is going to happen in the future!
And if no one knows, then the future is what we create it to be!
The video below gives several important points, such as:
How to determine your vision, goals, and what you want to happen in the future. And how to create that dream life, including a short meditation that will take you into your future and allow you to see it!
As we said before, you come into this world with a God given mission that you are meant to perform. And right now, at this exact second, you know what it is in your heart you are meant to do.
So assuming you have chosen to embrace that vision, let us begin the process of bringing it into reality.
The video below includes a very brief guided meditation that will allow you to travel into the future and see your ideal life, 10 years into the future.
Go ahead and check it out, if you haven’t yet and then we will continue!
Did you do it? If not…go do it!
If so, what did you see? Did it excite you, or maybe even scare you a little?
If you couldn’t see it, or were somehow filled with dread by what you saw, then, you definitely should take some time to face and resolve your fear. Fear can be a crippling prison if you don’t face and deal with it properly.
Assuming you saw something WONDERFUL, or your mission in life being fulfilled, how do you go about creating it?
Have you ever heard the saying: “how do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time”?
This is a technique you can use to create and apply any goal you might have, big or small. Start at the end, and work your way backwards to figure out what you need to do to make it happen.
Say you have a goal to be able to bench press 300 pounds (137 kilos); what do you need to be able to do to make that happen? Well, you need to be able to bench press 275, and 250, and 200, and 150, and so on. You need to know how to do a proper bench press at all!
Step 1, then, would be going online to read articles and watch videos to figure out safe and proper technique. Step 2 would be to go out and join a gym, or buy a weight set to work out at home, and start progressively working to add on the weight.
Does that make sense?
Start at the end, and back track breaking it into pieces; tiny, tiny pieces.
And most importantly: DO SOMETHING RIGHT NOW! Even if it’s just reading online or sending emails, that is action! And proper sustained action is the key to success.
I’m cutting this article short to give you time to capture that excitement and get after it!
You are great, and I love you!

And as always, if God be with you: who can stand against you?
