Actually, Maybe Money Can Buy Happiness

People today are gravitating towards consuming less frivolous goods in favor of spending money only on items that truly, genuinely bring happiness and delight. People and families everywhere are purging their homes of extraneous stuff, tailoring their lifestyles to feature more simplicity and less complication. That said, personal possessions still need to be purchased, requiring money to be spent. So, what is the best way to spend your money if you are looking to live a more joyous, condensed life?

The Flow of Money

When it comes to money, most of us look at it as something that comes to us and then goes away from us. We hope that what comes to us is greater than what goes away, but more often than not, well...not.

Consider for a moment that this construct of the flow of money is actually incomplete. What if money actually flows in a circle - to us, through us, away from us, then back around to us again, with a reservoir on the side that we get to keep?

Our Childish Money Conversations

Imagine a 60-year-old stomping their foot on the ground, crossing their arms and shouting ‘But I want to!’  

Most of us are able to see that this type of behavior is something we upgrade as we get more mature. We know that what worked when we were a child probably doesn’t work today.

But what about our money conversations?

How to Manifest What You Want

Most of us get the concept - ‘You Get What You Focus On.’

It seems pretty straight forward. Focus on what you want and it manifests in your life, right?

Then why do so many things that we don't want keep showing up? That’s a great question, so let’s take a look.

First, I want you to read this one more time:

The Power of Gratitude

Is it possible to have Abundance & Prosperity and still be happy? 

Absolutely!

I know many people who have true happiness in their lives who also enjoy abundance and prosperity. I also know many people who have more than they could ever need or want, but for whom happiness is as elusive as trying to catch a ray of sunshine in your hands. The inverse is just as true. There are many who have very little and yet live lives filled with joy and happiness.

Money Conversations That Have You!

In the course of striving to have an abundant life full of prosperity, we oftentimes have uncomfortable conversations about money.

We try to avoid them if we can, but in the end, we must force ourselves to suffer through those sometimes painful, yet important conversations.

Freddy Ehlers, Ecuadorian Minister of Buen Vivir, sat across the table from me at breakfast. I ate with not only Freddy; but also Bill and Lynne Twist, two of the co-founders of the Pachamama Alliance; and Freddy’s personal videographer, Enrique—not bad company.
