I am so fortunate to be able to do what I love on a daily basis. There is truly so much to be grateful for and I wanted to share with you the most effective and efficient way, that I have learnt, that can help you change your life so you can start following your dreams.
Every so often, life hands me a challenge that I haven’t come across before and helps me recognise the blessings and opportunities that I can sometimes overlook. One of the greatest challenges I’ve had throughout my life has been around the concept of money. For most people out there, including you guys, it is equally a challenge.
For most of my life I believed that if I had more money, somehow money would change my life and give me everything I want. In fact, I put money on a pedestal and subordinated to it. I would suspect that the majority of people in the world tend to do the same. Instead of us doing what we can to change our own lives, we rely on the money to do that for us. We place all our power in its metaphorical hands. This is what I was doing and, up until recently, was continuing to do. I relied on money to change my life because I was only seeing it with admiration. I wasn’t seeing the other side.
Over the past 10 months I have come to discover a little secret, that we’re all aware of but tend to overlook. This little concept or idea proved to be highly effective and incredibly rewarding and since I started implementing it, the results have astounded me. Although I still get caught in the trap of making money my ‘drug’ of choice, this approach showed me what’s possible and how to break the addiction.
So, you might be asking what is the most effective way to change my life? Well, it’s simple but it doesn’t mean that it’s easy. We all have a unique purpose or a vision and a dream for what we’d love to do with our lives. Some of us are aware of that and some of us are still searching for the answers. I have found, like many people before me, that when you pursue your dreams and follow your vision, you land up being the one in control of changing your life. You begin to rely on yourself, depend on yourself and push hard for what’s most important to you.
When you can own everything inside of you, that you perceive money is providing you, money loses its power over you and is not the goal anymore. Your vision or dream becomes the goal and money becomes the reward for honouring that goal.
We have been taught by society, our parents, teachers and other institutions that getting a job and making money is what’s most important. Who you are, what you offer this world and what matters to you is what’s most important. When you share that message with others and provide a service to the world, money becomes the thank you, that you receive for valuing your uniqueness. So go out there and start sharing your message, be of service with what you know and what you’re great at. Remember, Life Rewards Action.
