It will help you to live a happier, purpose-driven life. Living a holistically wealthy lifestyle is one of the keys to living a happy, meaningful, purpose-driven life. When I wrote my new book Holistic Wealth: 32 Life Lessons to Help You Find Purpose, Prosperity and Happiness, I outlined 32 different life lessons that form a framework for overcoming setbacks and living an intentionally designed life.

Living a holistically wealthy lifestyle will enable you to find prosperity in key aspects of your life, from financial stability and physical health to your emotional and spiritual connections with others.

Cultivating these strengths will build the mental toughness and grit you need to weather life's inevitable storms and setbacks.

Participating in a holistic wealth project group can boost your happiness and joy and enable you to have accountability partners. Accountability partners can build momentum and enthusiasm for everyone's goals and help each other to live according to their mission and to cultivate a holistic wealth mindset. A study by the American Society of Training and Development on accountability found that there is a 65% chance of completing a goal if you commit to someone. And if you have a specific accountability appointment with a person you've committed to, you will increase your chance of success by up to 95%.

So start now to ensure that you can be successful and achieve your goals. For instance, when I decided to write "Holistic Wealth," I told my friends about my intentions to do it. They held me accountable, and each time I thought of giving up, I thought about my friends and how much they had been cheering me on and inspiring me, and I knew I had to go through with it – I couldn't turn back. Success requires a public commitment. It requires a cheerleading squad that will cheer you on and a team spirit that will push your forward so that even when you think of giving up, you know that you have to keep going "for the team."

This is what brings out the best in Olympic athletes and also helps them to perform at "superhuman" levels – that level of accountability, grit, and perseverance.

In the book "Holistic Wealth," I've outlined the steps to take to build personal holistic wealth portfolios such as:

  • Your life purpose portfolio;
  • Your relationship asset portfolio;
  • Your financial independence portfolio; and,
  • Your emotional, physical and spiritual portfolio

Each of these portfolios is very individual and can change over time, but are highly effective within a group accountability mechanism –– especially if within the group participants sign an accountability agreement or contract to ensure that goals are carried out. Goals take hard work and commitment, and it's easy to give up when no one is around to hold you accountable or even just to give a word of inspiration and motivation.

If you're considering starting a holistic wealth project group, email me at info@keishablair.com. I've created a starter kit to help you kick start your holistic wealth project group.

#Blackout Tuesday​

BLACK LIVES MATTER.

This is not a day for silence; it is a day of disruption. This is a not a day where you can just post a black square to your Instagram feed and breathe a sigh of relief like you've done something good for the day. The #BlackOutTuesday protest was created by Atlantic Records' Jamila Thomas and Brianna Agyemang of Platoon as a response to #TheShowMustBePaused, urging the music industry to hault normal operations for one day in solidarity with the current protests. As reported by ET Online:

"Tuesday, June 2nd is meant to intentionally disrupt the work week," they [Thomas and Agyemang] explained of the blackout. "It's a day to take a beat for an honest, reflective and productive conversation about what actions we need to collectively take to support the Black community."

So, do not just post that black square. Use this disruption in your usual social media feed to educate yourself on the current state of racial justice, make calls to your local representatives, sign petitions, donate to bail out funds, support Black-owned businesses, and put some actions behind that plain, black square.

Here is a comphrensive list of resources you can start with.
