Here I am, back on my prosperity journey! I hadn’t really abandoned it, though. I have been still pursuing my life adventure, but on a side winding path: I have been working on several projects and, at the same time, I needed to take some time to look within myself.
At one point I realized I had been wandering here and there and I had lost sight of what had motivated me to set up “Project Prosperity”, of the “why” of my choice.
Was this motivation still the same? Had it changed? Because…you know what? I felt as though all the personal and professional progress I had made over the past year had disappeared and I was back to square 1, despite my achievements.

My first reaction at this eye-opening consideration was…..DESPERATION! I felt that despite my positive attitude about life, my strong willingness to attract prosperity into my life, despite being passionate about my business, I was feeling exactly the same as when I started my business two years ago. Why was that? What went wrong?
So I decided to take some time to look at this very seriously. I tried to listen to my heart (not always easy though: my heart was very confused too or, in any case, I was getting very confused messages) and finally I got the answers I was looking for:
1. I had gone back to operating in “struggling mode”;
2. I had lost sight of my uniqueness and passion and, as a result, my communication style and creativity had lost personality.
I realized I had fallen back into old thought patterns that were preventing me from moving forward on my journey and from infusing my work with passion and creativity.
What I am really proud of is that I definitely refused to see that as a failure. It was a great opportunity for me to take stock of what I had accomplished up to that moment and how the choices I had made that had taken me there.
It is now clear that my motivation is still there. What has changed is what I plan to do to accomplish my goals.
And what about you? Have you ever fallen back? And how did you take it?
