Your Money, Your Mind, and Your Motivation! Your Most Valuable Asset in Life
This blog post is the 4th in a series of our “Mind Over Money Series”. which I will be writing in the next 10 months. I believe that having the right mindset is extremely important in reaching the financial freedom we’ve all been searching for.
I hope you have taken the time to read our first few articles about money being a form of energy, what true wealth is and money originating in human thought. I now would like to get into a deeper discussion about your money as it relates to your mind and your motivation.
Would you be willing to agree with me that your mind and your ability to think is your most valuable asset in life? Without a healthy mind, everything else in life means nothing. This even includes your health as there is researchable evidence that your state of mind in many ways controls how healthy you are. However, that is for another article.
With your mind, and your ability to think, reason, create and imagine, you can have a return on thinking that far exceeds any return on investment that may come into your life. Thinking with your mind is the key to money flowing into your life!
The problem is that most people do not slow down long enough in their lives to give a serious mindful thought about their lives and what it is that they are living for! Most people follow a herd mentality that allows others to do their thinking for them. Think about this for a few minutes!
Most people do in life what they can do, have the ability to do, but never what they really desire to do in life.
Doing what you can do to make money is very different from doing what you desire to do to have money flow into your life.
The typical approach is to graduate high school, go to college (or trade school) because it is close to your home, where your parents went to college, or where your best friend or romance is going.
Find a major and career that is not well thought out or suited to one’s makeup as an individual then hate your career sometime around 40 years of age.
So they spend their entire working lives of forty years doing what does not make them excited in life, just so they can retire from it and hope their health holds out for at least twenty years. Is this what you desire to do with your one and only life?
This is an insane approach regarding money, your mind and your motivations for a happy fulfilled life. Would you agree? How about we try to approach the issue of money coming into your life with motivations that make sense to you and to your thinking mind, shall we?
I will like to ask you a few questions that you should take the time to contemplate and apply to your life.
- What are your motivations for creating money in the chosen career that you have?
- Does the way you bring money into your life align with your deepest values in life?
- Have you taken the time to find out what you really desire to do in life, not just what you can do in life for a career?
- Have you actually taken the time to create and design your life rather than just allowing it to unfold as it goes?
Have you ever thought to consider that one of the reasons you find it difficult to have enough money flowing into your life is because you are not truly motivated by the way you bring money into your life?
Maybe you are in a job you dislike and simply go to it every workday due to family and financial obligations. You see no way out of the rut you have found yourself in.
So the starry-eyed creative dreamer that was you before you were eight years old or so has been beaten down by life’s obligations and demands. You have allowed yourself to get into a rut that seems like a hopeless situation for you.
Why not change that now? Why not take the time to simply create your life by design, to put your creative mind to work and get into a career that motivates you. After all, this is your one and only life we are talking about here!
For starters, if you want to change how your money flows into and out of your life, you need to find out what makes you happy in life.
The end game is a life well lived, emulated by happiness and contentment. Here is where you can start.
You need to get your thinking wrapped around the idea of having a mind with all the clutter removed. Yes, that is what we are talking about here. Your money will flow through your life if you have the right mindset and the right motivations.
It will do more than flow, it will benefit a person’s life in ways that will enhance their quality of life, not destroy it.
You will need to get your mind and your motivations corrected and crystal clear before deciding to change careers, or get excited about where you are in life.
I am suggesting that you take a free course from Andy Shaw on Structured Thinking called “Footsteps Through Your Mind”.It is an awesome course and will help you to understand your money how you think and what motivates you.
You have your one and only life; do not waste it by following the herd mentality that has led to so many dead ends. Your money, your mind, and your motivations deserve the very best attention you can give it!
