Your Best Awaits: The Five B's of Abundance

By Richard Kent Matthews - Coach | Author | Speaker

Your Best Journey Begins Now!!! 

“Abundance shared is abundance doubled.”
(Swedish Proverb)

The Way of the Provider

The Five Be’s

You could read a thousand self help or prosperity books and you won't find much more in them than you will in this simple, short, and powerful process. Ready? Here goes...

If you really want to prosper, first appreciate where you are and what you have right now. That is The Main Key to it all! The rest is easy.

  1. Be clear. Knowing what you really want is essential. Otherwise, you’re just guessing. Clarity brings results!

  1. Be open. Receiving what you want depends on unlocking your head and your heart. Fear can be a stumbling block to clarity. Admit it, face it, be free to receive!

  1. Be observant. As soon as you get clear and open up to receive, little signs will begin to show themselves as to the direction you now should take. Watch for them; they can appear in some unlikely places!

  1. Be ready. Clarity, openness, and observation can really start things moving. Recognize that you are not alone in your manifesting. Is everyone on board? Check now. Changes in your life will affect everyone else in your life!

  1. Be still. Now that you’re clear, open, observant, and ready, allow the Universe (The Ultimate Provider) to bring it all together. Relax your mind and body. The continuing steps you need to take will be revealed to you. Take them in joy. 
"Image that the whole world is awake except you. Let everything be your teacher. All doing just the right thing to help you learn patience, compassion, and wisdom."

The Loo, the Poo, and You: A Journey in Life Saving

By Richard Kent Matthews - Coach | Author | Speaker

We take much for granted. Maybe too much. 
I thought you might find this tidbit interesting enough to start you on a new path to appreciation of those things we usually overlook in our daily lives.
From INTELLIGENT LIFE magazine, January/February 2012:
Flush Toilets
More even than the miracle of antibiotics, the flush toilet has done most to rid us of infectious disease. Without plumbed sanitation within the home to dispose of human waste, we would still be living in a brutal age of cholera, dysentery, typhus and typhoid fever—to say nothing of bubonic plague. 
A new study in Environmental Science & Technology estimates six out of 10 people on planet Earth don’t have access to flush toilets or adequate water-related sanitation. In other words, 4.2 billion human beings desperately need a technology you use every day and couldn’t give less of a [hoot] about.
The common commode, it turns out, is one of your best--and life saving---friends. 
Remember to say Thank You next time you flush.

Comments always welcome!
