Most People vs. Prosperous People

Contrary to what they title may suggest, this is not a battle between one type of person and another.

Actually, It’s a side by side comparison of what most people do in life, and what prosperous people do differently.

It’s my take on the age old question, What makes successful people so successful?

Well, we could talk forever about various definitions of success, as well as many ways we can interpret the word prosperous. However, we are here today as simple observers of a magnificent phenomenon that is avoidance behavior.

What I find infinitely more fascinating than the question “what makes people so successful?” is the question “why do people avoid their natural born internal power to co-create their own reality to match the life they dream of living?”. I’m more interested in that answer.

Here’s what I have come up with:


You see, our imagination reflects our emotional state, and our inner self-talk reflects our imagination.

In other words, how we feel usually determines how we are using our imagination, and how we are using our imagination usually determines our inner self-talk.

When we allow our emotions to control our imagination, and allow our imagination to control our inner self-talk, then our inner-self talk controls our life. This is what most people are doing, and most of them are not even aware they are doing it.

On the other hand…

When we take conscious control of our inner self-talk, we take back control of our imagination, and once we do that we can then change our emotional state. When we change our emotional state to one that is in harmony with the good we desire, and we ACT from that inspired state, we get what we want. This is what all prosperous people do, and it is why they are prosperous.
