Wealth is enjoying what we already have, not getting more of what we think will make us happy.

A way forward

What could you do that would transform your most burdensome limitation into a valuable and positive asset? What could you do that would turn your enemy into your friend?

Does that sound impossible? It’s not. Rather than being stuck behind your circumstances, you can become invigorated and inspired by them. Think of all the great triumphs that had their beginnings in seemingly hopeless situations.

Certainly life can be cruel and unfair to you, but that is no reason to keep yourself down. In fact, it is a very good reason to push forward with persistence and determination.

Yes, there is difficulty all around. And that’s what makes your positive, loving, caring, life-affirming actions so valuable and so absolutely essential. Take your imagination, your resources, your faith, your curiosity, your compassion, your strength, your determination, put them to work, and find a way forward. Find it, live it, and transform your world.
