You came here especially equipped to do something deeply meaningful to you. Doing that thing is being authentic.
Inspired enjoyment of a business, vocation, or profession that feels right and natural – now, that’s fulfillment. Answering the call of right livelihood or right business, in the way that only you can, is being genuine.
When you stand tall for what you believe, and your actions and words are congruent, that’s being authentic.
When you are being fully who you are, being genuine, original, and sincere, that’s being authentic. As such, you are the real deal – you don’t fake or pretend, in livelihood or the rest of life.
A birthright is your claim or heritage. You came here with a pre-existing intention to discover and claim a glorious, prosperous, and uplifting livelihood.
Your profession is not what brings home your paycheck. Your profession is what you were put on earth to do with such passion and such intensity that it becomes spiritual in calling. Virgil
So, my friend, what’s calling you? What genuine and original path is pointing to your fulfillment and prosperity?
How can you most effectively get your abundance flowing?
Abundance or prosperity comes in many forms, but, for the purposes of this article, when I say abundance – I’m talking about money. Making money in a way that makes your heart sing is authentic abundance.
Money is attracted to two things: enthusiasm and confidence. So you tell me, what kind of work are you likely to be most enthusiastic and confident doing?
Work is about a search for daily meaning as well as daily bread, for recognition as well as cash, for astonishment rather than torpor; in short, for a sort of life rather than a Monday through Friday sort of dying. Studs Terkel
That’s right, Studs! The engagement of deeply meaningful work is the only vocation that always brings forth confidence and enthusiasm.
When your work has meaning, you are fired up for it and by it. Eagerness and willingness to follow through are not in question when you are fired up.
Making money authentically comes more readily while being real and taking meaningful, sincere action. Yes, my friend, authentic abundance is your birthright. Now, are you going to claim it?
