Money doesn’t buy happiness.
Money doesn’t buy fulfillment.
Money doesn’t buy experiences.
Or maybe it does —and here’s the deal:
We’re constantly told narratives around money that often hold us back from:
Desiring more money.
Desiring more wealth.
Desiring more options.
And when I work with people —I help them own their desire for more money:
Without guilt or shame.
Because money is a tool that gives us options, freedom and the ability to amplify who and what we already are:
- If you’re a self-absorbed narcissist who accumulates wealth —you’ll be more of the same.
- If you’re a heart-driven, kind person who accumulates wealth —you’ll be more of the same.
Here’s how to own your desire for money without holding back:
Allow yourself to own your desire.
The first step with money is to allow yourself to own the desire that you want more —without adding language to justify it.
Be clear and specific about how much.
When people say they want “more” —that means nothing. How much specifically, down to the last cent?
Get rid of the “enough to survive” mindset.
Subconsciously, many operate out of having enough to make it by and survive and wonder why they close themselves off for more.
Understand the money is already out there.
Here’s the reality: your dream income is out there already and someone else is getting it because they’re willing to own it.
Give yourself permission to receive.
At some point, you have to ask. You have to put yourself out there. You have to be open, ready and willing to receive.
Take the straight path to revenue.
Many entrepreneurs distract themselves with tasks, projects and things that don’t generate revenue —and then complain.
The research is clear:
Money increases what psychologists call subjective well-being —up to $225,000 a year.
(They stopped tracking after that so it likely keeps going up.)
Is money the cure-all, end-all to fulfillment?
No, of course not.
But it solves problems, allows us to create experiences —and have way more fun.
And if you’re not where you want to be financially —it’s time to change your mindset around money.
And then get out into the real world, acquire skills and solve real problems for real people.
The money you dream of is out there —will you own it?
