You have the power to control the things that are in your control like the Coffeehouse ground rules. You have the power to control how many times you look at your portfolio throughout the year. You have the power to keep track of your spending. Most of all, you have the power to turn your attention toward your essential creativity to discover a purpose in life that is more life-giving than the daily commotion of Wall Street.
We are at a point of transition. As the world moves forward from a focus on survival of the fittest to sustainability for all, it will challenge us to use our essential creativity and shared wisdom to address problems from new dimensions, new structures, new concepts and maybe even re-invent ourselves along the way.
Deep inside, we are moved to share our wisdom with the global community to make it a better place. It is this great Energy of the Universe that drives communities, cultures, companies, countries, and yes, even stock markets, to new heights. The more you can put your good energy into this great unfolding, the better off we all will be.
We owe it to each other to make this a better world.
You owe it to yourself to live a life you richly deserve.
It is time to embrace the Coffeehouse ground rules.
You can find this excerpt and more inspiration in my second book, The Coffeehouse Ground Rules - Save, Invest, and Plan for a Life of Wealth and Happiness. I challenge you to turn your energy toward your life's purpose this next year. Happy New Year!
