Creating Total Wealth
What does wealth mean to you? I think most of us flash to a picture that has something to do with money. “Total wealth” is more than just having enough money. It’s having abundance in all areas of your life – finances, health, relationships, social, etc.
While money is not everything, having enough to meet your needs sure comes in handy. Most people have goals that include attaining a certain level of financial security or independence. I have been coaching people for many years to build internet businesses and when I dig to get to their real motivation for starting a business, I usually hear one of the following:
- I want to have more time – for me, to spend with my kids, husband, family, friends, etc.
- I want to leave my job/career and pursue what I love to do
- I want less financial stress/get out of debt
There are others but these are the most common. So money becomes not the goal itself but a way for us to achieve or obtain what we really desire. There is always an underlying emotion that we are looking to achieve.
Many people have financial goals but don’t seem to make progress. One way to speed up the process is to start feeling the emotion or doing what you think money will give you. For example, if you desire money to pursue your passion, start pursuing your passion now! Start on a part-time basis or in your spare time. Don’t wait for the money to roll in first. By starting, you will start to resonate with the emotions that you desire in the first place and that helps you attract what you want. You may know someone who is always looking for ways to make money or for the latest scheme but never seems to get ahead. That’s because they are too consumed with the end result and not focusing or necessarily enjoying the process or the ride.
What makes you happy and what is it that you desire in life – really desire? It’s important to be honest with yourself and not let outside pressures influence you. You owe it to yourself.
My Best Always, Kim
