You can have everything in life you want, if you will just help other people get what they want.
I have spent three quarters of a century searching for answers to how to live a life of abundance. Throughout my younger years my motivation was to have financial success. In the retirement years now my ambition is to live a purpose driven life. Because I have spent so much time searching I have acquired wonderful resources in my tool box to share with others.
Success for me is not equated merely by reaching my personal goals. The crowning achievement is my success in providing resources that others can draw on to achieve their self-defined successes to achieve a life of abundance for themselves.
A friend told me recently that her son had called my financial planner to schedule an appointment to discuss their planning to create a life of abundance. I am a strong believer in seeking professional advice for assistance in achieving my goals. Anything I have accomplished has been done with a roadmap to get me to my destination.
Recently we were at the reception following the Mass of Celebration of Marriage that my wife Jeanne and I planned with a team of couples. A friend said he was buying me a glass of wine because he and his wife were touched very deeply by this experience. When they got married they had only 25 or so people in attendance, with no professional photographer. Yesterday there was a photographer that captured pictures of both the Church ceremony and the reception which included individual pictures of every couple in attendance.
Realizing that this event touched the lives of those attending was a blessing. The success and large attendance were only possible by setting goals and having a strong support team to make it a reality. That is how this event developed into a large celebration of 2,393 years of marriage. Anything in life is possible to achieve if you set a goal and have good resources to guide and support your efforts.
One of the many comments I received from my posting on attracting positive people in my life was "I am trying. How do you find them?"
Whenever we give someone an inspirational book, CD, or invite them to come along to hear an inspiration speaker it gives us something in common to talk about. Many have become our network of positive people in our life.
Everyone has gifts and talents to share with others to help them live life to the fullest. This week you may want to spend some time helping one other person benefit from one thing you are doing to live a life of abundance. So many people send group emails on negative events happening in the world. It would be an easy start to forward only send positive information. Who knows how many lives will be touched!
