|Secret To Getting Anything?|
The sun crept over the horizon and lodged itself above the coastline, bathing the beach in a comfortable, morning glow.
Solitary clouds dotted the backdrop, lazy lollygaggers moseying across the sky, unhurried, white-haired philosophers gazing down at the busy-ness below.
I raced a pair of dragonflies down the road, glanced at the workers finishing the roof of another million-dollar home, noticed the new fishing boat parked in the driveway of one of the waterfront rentals.
Abundance everywhere, abundance of beauty, abundance of fortune. Another day in paradise.
For me, this poses a disturbingly fascinating question. Why some yes and some no?

Prosperity, in all its incarnations, comes from the inside.
How it shows up and decorates our world, well, that depends on us. I believe that we can learn the skill sets to create wealth, though the discipline must come from inside.

Trappings bring only fleeting glee, while lasting joy grows from the heart, a living, breathing, active organism that can only survive in one place-inside.
How much effort do you put into your inner life, seeding, nurturing, cultivating, harvesting and celebrating your own bounty? If we judge our tree by the fruit it bears, then only you decide whether your current harvest matches your expectations.
If not, you know where to turn.
