And this may very well be the case for you. People talk more about 'getting money' than they do about getting their life solid first.
Let me share something with you I've learned along my journey.
I write this from having the intimate experience of being on both sides of the fence; from having little or nothing, to being blessed and looked after pretty well if I do say so myself.
Success comes in various forms. Sucess solely from a financial perspective can be attained by those who are foul and those who're fair. Accumulation of money has nothing to do with your character. (Side Note: To all those running 'spirit based businesses' - if that's a ploy to garner more money, you don't really need to put on a show if that's the case.)
Now...the kind of success that's sweet to your soul, rewarding, fulfilling, and in alignment with who you were put here to be and do, that kind of success warrants more than your ability to 'get money.' That kind of success wants stewardship of taking care of their life.
The want for fleeting success is more prevalent than we'd like to admit as human beings because nobody wants to seem shallow.
But, once you get absolutely real about how and what you identify success to be, and find that you may equate it to things and stuff that have absolutely no visceral value, then you're left with but one question: "How do I live a fulfilled, successful life?"
You then can turn everything around. You can do so because the yearning for success is no longer about stuff you can get -- ya know the fleeting success.
Now the hunger and appetite for success comes from a place of certainty that has no filter, no price tag, no label. Pure unadulterated yearning to create, produce, and achieve for fulfillment. And true fulfillment is a result of sincere contribution.
When you take the focus off of 'getting money' and define success in a way that invigorates you, inspires you, awakens you, and stretches you, you see money, an esteemed reputation, influence, etc. come as concomitants. In other words, they're a package deal.
So, to close out this long azz post...lol...money is not only a necessity, but it is a change maker. I value money, I appreciate money, and I most importantly RESPECT money.
But, the key to having a lot of it, is creating a space within your life where money can reciprocate those same things to you -- and it can!
Make money become attracted to the success that really means something. The success that comes from your unadulterated place that isn't filled with 'stuff' and labels.
Give money a reason to say: "Damn, I like being with him/her. I'm going to go and get some more of my buddies to come check this guy/gal out."
You see, that's a reality that can and will happen for you if truly want it and do the work necessary to attain it.
No matter how hard life is for you and despondent you may feel right now, nothing lasts forever. There will forever be time for you to take care of you first.
Show life you value you, and it'll do the same.
Get Life, and then 'get money.'
Love & Light, folks.
