Growth – The Inner Desire to Be More!


Is anyone out there as obsessed as I am about learning, reading and wanting to know everything I can?  I’ve always been a ‘life-long’ learner but this obsession of mine has gone to the next level.  I’m currently reading ‘The Science of Getting Rich’ by Wallace D. Wattles, ‘The Game of Life and How to Play It’ by Florence Scovel Schinn, ‘How to Find Your Real Self’ by Mildred Mann and ‘Out of This World’ by Neville Goddard – not to mention the daily audios. It seems like every year that I am on this planet I want to learn more. Can you relate???

The ‘Urge of Life’

In chapter 5 ‘Increasing Life’ of ‘The Science of Getting Rich’ I feel that I’ve discovered the answer.   Wattles says, “Every living thing must continually seek for the enlargement of its life, because life, in the mere act of living, must increase itself.”

He continues “Every thought we think makes it necessary for us to think another thought; consciousness is continually expanding.  Every fact we learn leads us to the learning of another fact; knowledge is continually increasing. Every talent we cultivate brings to the mind the desire to cultivate another talent; we are subject to the urge of life, seeking expression, which ever drives us on to know more, to do more, and to be more.”


Wow!  Isn’t that beautiful?  I think so!  I am experiencing, the ‘Urge of Life’, I’m not obsessed after all. Whew! I am expanding my consciousness – not crazy.

Bob Proctor says that “The Universe is always for expansion and fuller expression!”  Thanks Bob!

I want to teach everything that I’m learning too.  I created my company Thrive, Flourish & Grow in order to do just that. (Notice that the words thrive, flourish, and grow are all synonyms for ‘expansion’).  Yep, that is no accident!


I’m currently in production on my 100% online course version of ‘Live a Life You Love, Now!’ By the end of September it should be available for everyone. I say should because I keep adding amazing content to it!

I can’t wait to share my learning experiences and journey with all of you!

Please comment below if you can relate and are experiencing your own expansion. I’d love to hear about it.

This is the time to share, to create, to expand and to live – to live a life that you LOVE!
