Prosperous Living in Turbulent Times
By Brad Swift
You may be wondering if it's really possible to live prosperously during these turbulent and challenging times. It may feel like so much is outside of your control or influence. Well, may I offer a reminder from the classic Serenity Prayer:
God grant me the serenity
to accept the things I cannot change;
courage to change the things I can;
and wisdom to know the difference.
And therein lies a clue to living prosperously in these or any other times. What I'm talking about is what I call "Purposeful Prosperity," and it's really about redefining what prosperity is. The dictionary (and our Western culture) defines prosperity as: "the condition of being successful or thriving, especially economic well-being."
But what if prosperity isn't what you have or don't have, what if it's not even about what your do or don't do? What if it's more of an outlook on life, a perspective you bring to life no matter what's happening on the outside - no matter what the circumstances are going on around you?
You see, there's a close, even intimate, connection between true prosperity and one's life purpose, and it's that close connection and relationship that you'll both learn about and begin to experience during the Life On Purpose - Home Study Course - a proven, systematic, spiritually based and practical process that helps you clarify your life purpose. Furthermore, this home study course provides the tools for you to design your life to be a true and authentic reflection of that purpose. So then you can get on with the joy of living according to your life purpose! This is our top recommendation for individuals wanting to live a truly fulfilled life.

It's not easy to acknowledge that you're missing out on the fullness of life, that perhaps there's a deep pain or void — a sense that's something is wrong, or a realization that there's untapped potential that may be going to waste. Or as one person recently reported:
"I feel so adrift in my life. I've fallen into a
routine that's feeling more and more like a rut.
I'm tired of lying awake at night wondering if
this all there is to life. There's just got to be more."
But there is hope — there really is. Maybe there's nothing wrong, only something missing... For many people, the missing element that is so key to unlocking the full potential of your life is 'clarity of purpose' — knowing your true life purpose and designing your life to be a true and authentic expression of that purpose.
But how do you go about identifying your purpose for living? Learn about a proven, spiritually based and practical process that has already assisted thousands to clarify their life purpose. You really have nothing to lose and so much to gain — your life — your life on purpose.
