Pretty much anywhere you go these days, you hear people talking about what a tough economy it is. Of course, unemployment is at alarmingly high levels, people are losing their houses, and many countries today have national debts skyrocketing out of proportion to their Gross Domestic Product. These are real problems that require real solutions.
At the same time, many people today are thriving in a way that they never thought possible. By thriving, we don’t mean simply making more money. We mean living a multidimensional life that is ultimately, deeply fulfilling: one that includes openhearted, loving relationships, a spirit of service and community, and the unwavering certainty that you have gotten in touch with the gift you were born to give, and you are giving it passionately to the world.
We’ve investigated why some people thrive beyond their wildest dreams in this “difficult economy,” and some people contract in a feeling of fear and dis-empowerment. We’ve managed to isolate 27 characteristics, which “thrivers” demonstrate.
Another way to look at these times is not so much a “difficult economy,” but an economy of transition. When the agricultural age turned into the industrial age, or when we shifted from mechanical based industry to electronics based, the old rules no longer applied. We are going through a shift today more dramatic than ever before. We are living through a shift in collective consciousness, where we must evolve or perish. People who are firmly committed to the old ways of doing things, who want to repeat what they’ve learned in school, may be in for a tough time. On the other hand, thrivers have learned how to ride the wave, and how to tune into what is coming next, instead of into what is crumbling.
Over the next 12 weeks, between now and December 8th, we are going to introduce you to the 12 most important qualities needed to thrive in the new economy. Our guests include people like Jack Canfield, Lynne Twist, Ivan Misner, Lynne Mctaggart and Hale Dwoskin. These people are not just financially successful (although most of them are), they are experiencing extraordinarily high levels of fulfillment in every area of their lives, and they know how to pass it on.
The series starts with a bang this Thursday, September 15th, at 6pm, Pacific time. Our guests are Hale Dwoskin, the author of “The Sedona Method,” and Luis Diaz, author of “Memory in the Cells.” We are going to be discussing how to recognize and liberate outdated beliefs about work and money.
Everything we think we know about work and money, we learned from the past. We learned it from our parents, our school teachers, we learned it from the television, we even learned it from spiritual teachers. We learn things from economists, people who are great experts in a system that is now dying. Many of us had beliefs about work and money drummed into us over many decades. “Money doesn’t grow on trees.” “The early bird catches the worm.” “Don’t look a gift horse in the mouth.”
We’ve been raised to participate in an economy of scarcity, where there is probably not enough to go around. The solution is to amass more for Me. In this series, we are not going to teach you how to replace negative beliefs with positive beliefs. We’re not going to teach you how to “think and grow rich.” We’re going to go much, much deeper than that. We’re going to learn how to question deep-rooted beliefs about money, and discover how to step beyond the mind, the realm of belief, all together.
Thrivers are not people who have learned how to have only positive and abundant thoughts. They’re people who have learned how to tap into a dimension of intuition, inspiration, and insight much deeper than conceptual thinking.
This tele-seminar series is completely free. You can listen in over the web as our gift, and you can listen to the replay for 24 hours afterward.
We are sure you’re aware of the terrible tragedy happening in east Africa. More than 5,000 children under the age of 5 are dying each day due to lack of water and famine. CARE is doing extraordinary work now to alleviate suffering in Africa. They have an A++ rating for the ratio of money donated to money actually put to good use. They maintain some of the lowest administrative costs of nonprofit organizations. You can upgrade your membership in the How To Thrive Now tele-seminar series, to receive MP3 recordings, workbook pages and more. Every cent we receive after expenses will be given to CARE, to save lives.
Are you ready to thrive in your own life, and save the lives of others?
Please register today for this tele-seminar series, and please forward the news about this series to as many people as possible. We are excited, inspired, and humbled by the opportunity to have an impact on the lives of people we hardly know. That is the essence of how to thrive in the new economy: to let your participation here be more one of giving than receiving. This is the giant leap from being a consumer to a contributor.
See you on Thursday!
