Money. The root of all of evil. Or is the root of all miracles?
Don't you love the sound of that? I used to struggle with my desire to make a lot of money, while honoring my love for simplicity and being a good person.
Because, well, let's face it. Most of our examples of those with insane amounts of cash appear to have gotten it in ways that don't quite fit my idea of doing good in the world.
But, then I took a step back and realized- Wait. There are plenty of examples of people that are very financially successful and have made HUGE contributions to our society. Marie Forleo, Bill Gates, Oprah, Richard Branson, the list goes on and on.
And it made me think about my limiting beliefs towards money and how I could be holding back my divine gifts from others.
I'm very open about going broke in my first business and how my experience has led me to want to help others to never experience the gut wrenching agony of being cash-strapped. My experience could really help others!
Part of making smarter money decisions is using practical accounting strategies. And the other, equally as important part, is your approach towards your money. Your energy and openness when you choose to engage with it.
And choosing to not engage is also an energetic decision.
I wrote an article for MindBodyGreen about three reasons why focusing on money will transform your life. Drastically.
Your life will change in so many good ways. Because the more money you have, the more opportunities you will have to shine your light on others.
In the comments below, I would love to hear about your relationship with money. Do you have any limiting beliefs? How do you work through them.
