Here is my prayer for the new year: May you, along with all women, realize that you have the capacity to create wealth and the confidence to actually do it.
I suspect, however, for some of you, the mere mention of the “W” word feels wrong, bad, like ‘how can I be rich when so many are poor?’ But consider the words of Abraham Lincoln: “If you want to help a poor person, do not be one.”
Let me be clear. Wealth is not an amount. It’s a mindset. You’re wealthy when you have more than enough, and you know it.
Besides, creating wealth is about far more than amassing riches. It’s about who you have to become to attract, sustain and grow your money.
Ultimately, creating wealth requires you to wake up to the power you have, the enormous power, to not only create wealth but to use it to help others, to make a difference.
Perhaps Rev. Michael Beckwith said it best: “You can’t be light of the world if you can’t pay light bills.”
Sure, I want you to be able to pay your bills. But my deepest desire is to see you shining your light at maximum wattage, without the distraction of insufficient funds or unhealthy habits.
No more dimming yourself down to please others or refraining from rocking the boat so you don’t make waves.
It’s time for you to make waves. Big ones. I want to see a tsunami of women shaking up the world, shining their light, eradicating the darkness that’s so pervasive on this planet.
I’m going on vacation so this will be my final post for 2023. Let me leave you with another prayer. May 2024 bring you more prosperity, peace of mind and sense of empowerment than you ever dreamed possible.
Happy New Year!
