Show Me the Money!
by Randy Gage
Let’s go a little deeper on the topic from last week: why be rich. I stimulate you to create wealth for a few important reasons:
1) It’s never been easier than now.
2) It gives you choices.
3) It can provide you freedom or security.
While the money is an element of this, it really is not about the money. It’s about what it can do for you. We’ve all heard that money doesn’t buy happiness. But I can tell you that poverty makes misery a whole lot easier.
Here’s perhaps the most important thing to consider…
Happiness doesn’t come from money and material things, but it does come from the self-expression they can offer you.
So here’s my advice: Get the money thing out of the way as quickly as possible!
rich people sometimes get a bad rap for the wrong reasons..
Look what you will be able to contribute - getting rich is one of the noblest things you can do in your life..
I had fun this week doing an alphabet of 26 Reasons to be Rich.
A is for Abundance of all good things.
B is for the Books I can buy.
C is for ...I'll have to do it over, I forget. I remember that G was for Generosity, and U was for a trip to the UK.
There are a million reasons to be rich. And I can't think of any good reason not to be.
RG, love it.
Money is simply a form of freedom, a vehicle through which you can experience stuff. I like the aspect of dough that allows me to travel while prospering.
As you said get it out of the way early. No better way to help you enjoy the richness of life because unless you are enlightened, and have turned away from a worldly life, you will experience a great deal of misery attempting to do more, have more and be more while attempting to pay the bills and put food on the table.
Express yourself and you will never be more happy. I enjoy writing and blogging, and I write all day, along with chatting to prospects on the phone, which I enjoy too....so I am a happy camper. Combine this with the fact that I am writing this from Thailand, when a foot of know coats some of my home state...and I am even happier ;)
Randy, great two posts on money. I really like the provocative question, "Why be rich?" And if money is so unimportant, why do so many people think about it and talk about it (or the lack of it) so much! It seems the less money one has, the more he or she thinks and talks about it.
Got it!! For me it's about changing people's lives through telling entertaining yet inspiring stories in an innovative manner.. So cool Randy.. thanks!
True that. As soon as you focus on authenticity and what truly lights you up, the money will follow.
@million dollarIs this philosophy working for you? I'm not saying its wrong (or right) - I'm just wondering.
@MrsHealthandProsperity It's not working until this day... But i think it's just logical. If you look at the people who are succesful (and rich) they all loved what they did. That's what drives them to go on when things got difficult... and it will. Randy always say that it always has to be a value for value exchange. And who can do it better then the people who are passionate about what they are doing ? They are driven about what they do and not about the money. These people are the big winners. Randy if you have also a comment on this, please share it.
So how about experimenting with it? That's what I'm doing. I am passionate about two things: my network marketing biz (superb potential for riches with the top-rated biz in the industry, lucky moi, she said passionately) and with coaching/training people about Law of Attraction - which dovetails nicely with attracting everything I need to attract & allow to grow my biz. What have you got that you could be passionate about?
Yes, I'd like to hear from Randy about "Riches and Passion, how they are related."
@MrsHealthandProsperity Maybe true, i don't know. I never experienced it. Maybe Randy can do a future topic on this ...
I'm going to make a wild guess here: People who Intend to Become Rich find something that a) could be of value and b) that is morally/ethically ok with them AND THEN
They develop a passion about it.
Passion isn't something that happens accidentally. It is an emotion that one chooses to experience over and over again. "Get Passionate About It" one of my mentors told me, when I said, "I've got this idea/project."
The passion comes 2nd.
This is My Perception, not necessarily The ULTIMATE TRUTH about EVERYTHING.
I'm putting it to work. Am richer than I was 2 months ago. Seeeems to be working. ;)
