I was sitting at the airport in Orange County, talking with some speakers who were traveling back on the same flight as I was. One of them asked me how things were going. I replied that I was doing great. Then she asked a simple enough question…
“How can you tell?” she wanted to know.
“Money,” I answered.
She gave a nervous laugh, as did another friend with us. “That’s not exactly what I was expecting you to answer,” she said. “I was expecting you to say something about the results your clients get, or something like that.”
I think they are almost the same thing…
As you know, I live my life by the objectivist philosophy of a fair exchange of values. And practice the laws of prosperity, which are also grounded in a value for value exchange. So if you do what I do, and you do it well—you make lots of money.
If people don’t get value for your books and albums, they don’t buy the next one that comes out. If they don’t learn things at your seminar, they don’t attend another. And if companies don’t see a change in results after you do a program for them, they look for someone else next time.
Which is exactly as it should be. But I hope you understand the bigger picture. Namely the way that abundance works…
If you do something at an extraordinary, exemplary and world class level in the marketplace, the market will make you rich. Because that is the way prosperity works.
Now it’s not fashionable to talk about money in the way I do. People think it’s not “spiritual,” to talk like that. I think it’s the highest form of spiritualism. I see money as universal law in action, living your life by the highest principles of spirituality.
What do you think?
