The Race

Share it Please
The human race has had long experience and a fine tradition in surviving adversity. But we now face a task for which we have little experience, the task of surviving prosperity.
Alan Gregg

Rather than let someone else define prosperity for you, how about coming up with your own definition. What does a prosperous person look like? How do they act in the world? What would a prosperous person hold as high values? What does a regular day’s schedule look like for a prosperous person?

You might also consider asking people in your close circle of friends, or in your family, how they answer these questions. The last part of the exercise is to ask yourself “In what ways am I already a prosperous person?”

Francis Bacon said, “Prosperity is not without many fears and distastes, and adversity is not without comforts and hopes.” With this in mind, you might discover that prosperity is an experience of life that is different from person to person and from experience to experience.

Seeing Good At Work
I have been through the book three times over three years, and am starting it again. This is not because the material in the book is not working, but because it is working so well! The weekly lessons keep me on track and focused on what is actually true and important, and help me experience more good in every area of my life. LS
