NEW YORK CITY, New York – Wealth can be defined differently from each individual’s point of view. For some people, wealth means earning or inheriting an abundance of money. For others, wealth may mean being abundantly well and healthy. Some may even define wealth as material success.
In this book of wellness quotes and affirmations, Author and Speaker Tevonne Hemmans offer a consummate inspirational narrative that includes affirmations scaling the topics of career, self-confidence, overcoming fear, love, and abundance. One of the affirmations from Wealthy Soul reads, “I have all the skills and talent required to acquire the career I need.” Hemmans also adds wellness quotes from prominent people throughout the history of mankind such as Muhammad Ali, which whom he quotes, “What you’re thinking is what you’re becoming.”
