Upset Robed Woman Glaring At Her Many Credit Cards.

Aloha, When I’m teaching about prosperity and someone brings up the issue of debt, my answer is pretty blunt: In Western culture, spending more than you have is a desperate attempt to mask the pain of not living your life’s purpose. If you are living your life’s purpose, you don’t overspend and you don’t end […]

  A baseball swing is a very finely tuned instrument. It is repetition, and more repetition, then a little more after that.

Aloha, Do you realize that you get everything that you ask for from the universe? You do 100% specifically get every single thing that you ask for. My guess is that you miss opportunities all the time because of a lack of two specific things. First let me be clear, I’m not claiming I have […]
