The holiday season brings with it merry cheer and the one custom that is shared across many religious and cultural traditions…giving. We often hear the phrase “it is more blessed to give than to receive” quoted during this season. It is in this phrase that many find their sense of happiness and purpose.
Research done by social psychologist Liz Dunn and her colleagues shows that people’s sense of happiness is greater when they spend relatively more on others than on themselves. The survey was conducted with over 600 US citizens and of various income levels.
The most interesting fact from the research was that even those with little money reported greater happiness when their giving surpassed their receiving.
In my book, The Wealth Attraction Formula: How to Attract Wealth & Manifest the Life of Your Dreams, I discuss the Five Keys to Attracting Wealth. Once you realize if you’re living in sync with your core values, you will be closer to taking positive steps towards achieving your goals; a way of thinking and feeling that inspires action, which creates results and impacts your values.
Your fulfillment in life is directly related to how well you are living in sync with your values.
Think about values for a moment. Values aren’t morals or principles. They’re the essence of who you really are, not who you think you should be. Often times we confuse money with being a […]
In my book, The Wealth Attraction Formula: How to Attract Wealth & Manifest the Life of Your Dreams, I discuss the Five Keys to Attracting Wealth. Once you discover that mindset is the most important component in creating wealth (Chapter 1), the challenge becomes how to re-take charge of you and your life decisions.
10 Ways to Take Charge of Your Life
Frequently we forget about ourselves and what we want to do with our life as we spend so much time taking care of other people. Now is the time for you to take back your life. Here are 10 steps you can follow in taking charge of your life again.
After my marriage came to an end, I had a BIG decision to make.
I could either be a victim of my circumstance or I could make the decision to RISE above and fix my mindset on success. My perception of life changed. I moved across the country and decided to put the knowledge I had gained in previous years to work. Income started pouring in from various streams but even so, my life felt completely out of control.
I REALIZED THAT BEING WEALTHY WASN’T ALL BASED ON INCOME OR MATERIAL ASSETS; BUT WAS INSTEAD AN OVERALL SENSE OF WELLBEING.
THIS REVELATION CAME AFTER MY MINDSET CHANGED.
Thought power became the key to creating my reality. I became the master of my destiny […]
All debt, whether good debt or bad debt, has the same outcome. You receive now but you give back in the future. The only significant difference is that one debt works for you instead of against you. Is your wealth mentality itching to know the difference?
Good debt is anything that increases your net worth or has some future value.
Good debt enables you to anchor your assets, manage your finances and increase your value. Certain examples of beneficial debt are mortgages, student loans or a loan to consolidate debt; all of which are usually with lower interest rates. These investments will grow in value or generate long term value – unlike bad debt.
Bad debt is debt incurred on purchases […]
It’s easy to think that once you become a millionaire, you’re set. All your financial woes go away, and you have “made it.” However, this kind of mindset is dangerous because real wealth is not measured by how much you have, but rather how long you can last on what you have.
Are you looking at your saved money as real wealth?
When people think about “lasting on the money I have,” they immediately want to save more and put more money in the bank. Over years of traditional thinking, most employees would think this way. However, sooner or later, the inevitable will happen. The money you have in the bank will run out. To the financially educated, they are looking at 1) […]
Don’t Allow Your Finances To Become A “Junk Drawer”
Opening the kitchen “junk drawer” trying to find a pair of scissors can be frustrating. Many kitchen “junk drawers” are filled with things that are for one-day-when-I-need-this or items that don’t really have a specific home. We throw them into the “junk drawer”, close the drawer and hide the disorganization behind the drawer knob.
Many times, our finances behave the same way. We sometimes keep our receipts & sometimes we lose them. If we keep the receipts, they start to pile up on the desk. When you need it again, the ink has faded away with time. Sometimes it’s so bad that you can’t find a folder you stuck somewhere when quickly cleaning […]
As this season provides opportunities to reflect, I want you to think about YOUR EVERYDAY DECISIONS.
What kind of thoughts are you thinking?
What kind of choices are you making?
Are you taking action?
If not, let’s try to identify what could be hindering your ability to attract wealth. Every decision we make is based on some kind of declaration we have made to ourselves. Thus, we have agreed with the logic or emotion of the thought and therefore, we create an alliance with it.
You Are What You Think
You may have had an experience where a teacher or parent or friend implied you’re not good enough to have more success than them. If you agreed with that statement, you may be feeling guilty for wanting […]
As you choose to step into this new world of attracting wealth, it is imperative you surround yourself with the right people. You cannot possibly know everything about everything. To streamline your way to success, invest in your greatest asset – YOU – and hire the expertise of a coach or mentor who has done what you want to do. Hiring your mentor or coach requires a delicate relationship balance. You must be willing to learn from them, and they must be ready to guide you.
A mentor is someone you should trust
Free advice is precisely that: Free. It doesn’t cost you anything to hear it. Free advice requires nothing for someone to give it. It usually has little value. Therefore, you want to invest in a coach […]
Everyone making an income will fall into one of the four categories of earners. Each one is earning money, but which will build wealth? Which will be able to create the life they desire? Let’s look at how each of us fits into one of these categories:
Employee: This is the person that has a job and chooses to work for other people. They trade their time for money.
Self-employed: This person works for themselves – They make their schedule & dictate terms for earning an income. They own their jobs, and their role needs them to be successful. They find themselves stuck in the day-to-day operations of the business.
Business owners: This person is the visionary. Therefore, they have created processes and systems so the business creates profits without them […]
