Why no one in his or her right mind should do this!
“They” keep saying that money shouldn’t be your main focus.
Who are they? The millionaires and billionaires who made their fortunes, of course.
For example, Texas Billionaire Red McCombs says he never set out to make a lot of money; instead he set out to be the person everyone else went to – the go-to man in business.
He realizes that power is more valuable than money, because eventually what comes from power is money.
I milled over this philosophy for a bit.
I wondered how that really does play out.
The other thing he mentions is that he doesn’t believe you should hang in there forever trying to make a business work.
He says that you should give it all you’ve got, all in.
But if it isn’t profitable or becomes too big of a hassle, sell it off and let the next person make something better of it and get the profit. Know when to quit, but don’t quit because you’ve been slacking.
I milled over this one too because I was still intrigued and a tad confused,
Then I read this quote:
“You are right when you think, Money isn’t everything. You certainly do not need money to have joy in your experience. But in your society—where so much of what you live is tied to money in some way—most of you associate money with freedom. And since freedom is a basic tenet of your being, then coming into alignment with money will help you establish a balanced footing that will be of value to you in all other aspects of your experience.”
Excerpted from: Money and the Law of Attraction on August 31, 2008
What seemed a conundrum was a philosophy hitting home.
It was freedom, control and a sense I was of value that forever pushed and pulled me to leadership. Of course I wanted the money however I know now why.
What comes from power is money.
I like that.
I really do.
So if anyone ever tells you to go jump in a like, what’s your best response? Be a lady, but for pete’s sake, use your own discretion what you will and won’t do in your life to maintain sanity, control, and of course the freedom with money!
Speaking of which, one of my new adult color books, Please God, don’t let me Be a Bag Lady, showers you with inspirational quotes and much more than a batch of mandala’s to color.
In fact, (and I’m trying to be humble here) my specialized coloring books are bringing attention to coaches, speakers, trainers and women in leadership roles as options to share with their client base.
I’m thinking out loud here, but what if you could get the rights to my completed works, add your own logo and name and offer it as your reference to your coaching or presentation clients?
What if you could easily transform a ready-made adult coloring book into your own?
Stay tuned, because the idea is transforming into reality.
More to come later, dudettes!
