First coffee, then I love money… do you?

What if you say the following statement about your best friend, or partner:

“Today, I realized something compelling. My husband/wife/friend is not the most important thing in life. In fact, in a healthy and balanced life, my husband/wife/friend often follows behind many other elements. If I put my energy and time into other things more important than my husband/wife/friend, he/she/they will follow.”

Will they stick around? Will they follow?

If you want money to show up in your life and stick around, you may want to re-think what you say about it.

“I just need enough money to pay the bills”
“I just want to live comfortably
“Rich people are a$$holes
“More money, more problems
“It takes money to make money”
“It’s selfish to want a lot of money”
“It’s more spiritual to not care so much about money”
“I’m not good with money”

Are you putting a limit to the amount of money you can earn, create, manifest?

Think about the 5 people you spend the most time with.

What are their values and beliefs when it comes to money?
What are their conversations around money?
Do you need to upgrade those conversations?
Do you need new people around?
New conversations?
New beliefs around money and wealth?

Tool of the week: Today I’m sharing two resources around money.

I shared this video last year so if you have been reading my stuff, you may have seen it already. “Get rich quick by Ramit Sethi on Impact Theory” (The quick part may be a lie but it does offer valuable advice. If you want to get a raise, but don’t want to watch the whole thing, start at 23:15).

The second tool is a book:  The Latte Factor by David Bach and John David Mann. A book about three secrets to financial freedom. With that title, I was… skeptical, to say the least. My first thought was: — Great! Another piece of literature trying to convince me that, spending six or so dollars on a latte, is a crime pfff…. But, because I have made a commitment to my growth, I decided to give it a chance. It was not about the lattes!! Well, not necessarily. The book was about being intentional with your spending habits. It was a powerful read.
