If we ask ourselves enough times why we care about making money, the truth goes a lot deeper than security: Maybe we want power.
The power to design amazing experiences for ourselves and the people we love. Maybe we have big bold dreams about how to redesign the whole world. The more money we have, the more we can influence the causes we care most about, like justice, equality, and the sustainability of our planet.
When we have clients write their money dreams, they often start out sounding quite stale. They use words like “security” and “nough.” It’s more than likely not the truth of “why” for them. We’re just not really trained to think very deeply about this area.
When we drill deeper, we find out what people care about underneath that first layer, and it’s almost always one or more of the following:
- Providing special experiences for themselves and the people they love
- Being able to influence causes that are dear to them
- Leaving a legacy in honor of what they believe in
Do you recognize yourself in any of these?
We all get so busy trying to make money, save it, and spend it wisely – that we lose sight of the reason behind all of it! How long has it been (if ever!) that you’ve asked your heart to chime in regarding money matters?
Your head, sure. But your heart…?
When you are present to the likely sweetness and purity of your ultimate dream for making money, you can get to work correcting patterns of bad thinking and bad behavior in a more light-hearted manner. And when you change your mindset, you’ll find that you can make more money and feel better about it too!
