Tomorrow, my family and I are journeying 5 hours south to Uvita, Costa Rica to attend EnvisionFestival. I have no idea what to expect. And I’m taking a leap bringing my family. But I felt called to go.

Every evening, we’ve been watching the sunset. It’s a simple ritual. A 5 minute walk to the playa. Surfing the waves. My youngest playing in the sand. As the light dims, we walk back to our house. Sometimes, we hold hands. And we jump in the pool and play.

I breathe and take it all in.

This pure moment of togetherness is how I define affluence.

Here’s why I am sharing this:

There were many moments when it felt HARD. When money felt so tight. Or I woke up feeling the weight of the world on my chest. When we’ve had fights in our home.

But your breakthrough to affluence is on the other side of HARD.

The other night, I was on the phone with a woman who reminded me of me. She faced a mountain of debt, a job loss, and family challenges. And she was so scared and stuck.

But I felt excited for her. Adversity is a gift if you know how to leverage it properly.

Because when you are facing a HUGE challenge and it feels like everything is raining down on you, you are SET UP for a miraculous breakthrough to abundance, if you will only press forward.

Most people stop at the block—at the money lack–and they fall back into the problem.

When your life gets so bad, you are ready to do ANYTHING to change, you are primed for success.

You are coachable. You are humble. You are willing to do things another way.

Look, you do not need a Costa Rican sunset to be living an affluent life. You can start by asking the right questions: How can I best fulfill my purpose? How & where do I thrive? What am I grateful for today?

How can I increase affluence in my life?

Everyday affluence.

It is all here.

OK. I’m off on our road trip. And I won’t be checking emails… much. But I want to hear from you.

I believe affluence is a choice. Do you agree or disagree? What would it mean for your life to embrace this belief. Or if you have, how has this impacted your life?
