Creating a prosperity map

Bruce Freeman writes a column called the Business Professor for Scripps Howard News Service. This week he’s writing about creating a prosperity map.

A prosperity map is a large poster board from the art- or office-supply store that you fill in with images of things you want to do, have

or become.

According to Randy Gage, president of Prosperity Factory Inc., “prosperity, like all forms of success is created in the mind first.

When you imagine things in your mind, you are actually programming your subconscious to manifest them on the physical plane,” Gage said.

As you create your map, put images of success that speak to you emotionally.

Then every time you see it, it helps anchor those images in your subconscious mind.

Don’t show this map to anyone, except those who support and encourage you. Share it only with those you can count on as partners toward your success.

There are no rules for how you put things on the board, except that the image has to mean something to you. It doesn’t matter if anyone else understands it. They don’t need to. But you have to know what it means every time you see it. It can include photos, illustrations or affirmations.

Some entrepreneurs may feel this is too “new age-y.” But entrepreneurs also know that all success is created in the mind first.

Think of a prosperity map as a way to crystallize your vision and create a mindset for making it come true.
