What Would You Do If Money Were Not An Obstacle
The fear and angst around money these days is palpable, and quite frankly, I am tired of hearing people complain about the economy. I am not at all in denial about the downturn and all the unemployment and I am not going to bash the Occupy Wall Street movement. They have their place in the grand scheme of things.
I just don’t want to be part of the “Resistance.” I prefer to put my energy into co-creating a new way of living and working in the world.
With my computer crashing last week, I made 4 trips to the Apple Store at the mall, and you would never know that there is a shortage of money to go around. The mall was jammed to the hilt, and the Apple Store alone had a line around the corner, with their recent launch.
People make choices. People choose to remain in all kinds of situations they can barely tolerate. People buy stuff to make themselves feel better.
And people stop themselves every day from giving their dreams a chance, and use not having money as the excuse.
Each week I speak to people who share with me that they want to create a business that gives them the freedom to spend more time with their families, be more creative, and help others. Each week I speak to several who don’t invest in their dreams, and tell me that it is because they don’t have the money.
Investing in your dream is one of the most important things you can do, because you will never be truly happy if you don’t find out if the dream could come true. Not doing it because of money is playing it safe, and will never give you the security you are holding onto.
Oprah says, “The only courage that anyone ever really needs is the courage to live the life that you truly dream.” It does take courage, and it takes support.
Support costs money. Getting support is an investment in your dream. As a business owner, if you are not willing to invest in yourself, you cannot in all integrity ask others to invest in you.
Your dream + your destiny = your purpose.
Your purpose is an expression of your soul.
When you express your soul, everyone involved benefits.
The difference between spending and investing has to do with the reason behind the output. An investment is meant to bring a return, and is based on the universal principle called “The Law of Increasing Return” which states that a small amount of energy applied for a specific purpose brings a far greater amount of like energy in return.
Ask yourself what you would be doing if money were not an obstacle. If there is something that you are called to do, and it seems as if a lack of money is keeping you from it, I recommend acting “as if, ” and make the decision to move in the direction of your dream, as if you had all the money in the world.
“Abraham says, “When your life experience causes a focused desire within you, the means to fulfill that desire is created at the same time-but you have to be on the Vibrational wavelength with your desire in order to see the path to the fulfillment of it.”
To get on the vibrational wavelength, you must make a decision, not knowing the how. It is not just about wishing, but about unwavering desire to bring the dream forth.
It takes courage, which is another word for FAITH. Faith and fear cannot co-exist in the same mind.
It is your choice, no matter what Wall Street is doing.
