50 Words to Your Dreams Chapter 19: Prosperity by Michael George Knight

Chapter 19: Prosperity


Prosperity is defined as the state of being prosperous, flourishing, thriving and good fortune. Prosperity often encompasses wealth, success and affluence but also includes other factors which can be independent of wealth to varying degrees. Such as, happiness and health.What does prosperity mean to you? How can you become more prosperous? How can you better yourself in the areas of wealth, success, knowledge, health and happiness? How can you fill your cup up so full that it overflows prosperity and others can drink from it?

Once you get to a stage in life where you have achieved most personal things to satisfy your needs, you should become focused on creating prosperity for others and in turn by creating prosperity for others you also become more prosperous. By becoming wealthy you can certainly be more prosperous than someone that is broke. If you are healthy,you have more energy to give, than if you are sick. If you are smart, you can impart wisdom on others and teach knowledge. If you are happy, you make a happy environment for others. This all related to prosperity as you as an individual can bring more prosperity into life for yourself and others.


Is the world more prosperous now than 100 years ago? Think about. Imagine going back in time like Marty McFly in back to the future and having a conversation with your great great grandparent and explaining to them about the future you live in now. What a disconnect there would be between the two of you. The time we live in are the most prosperous times humanity have ever known. Take the smart phone. Arguably the best piece of individual personal technology we use and carry. If you took a smart phone back in time and showed people the phone living 100 years ago, they would think you are from the future 1000 years ahead of their time. But not knowing the incredible rate of advancement and prosperity that happened in the last 100 years have led current civilization to have so much opportunity it is mind boggling. I just want to remind you about the prosperous times we live in and think more about what can you do to add to your future grandchildren’s prosperity.
