Money Can Buy Happiness

We have all heard the phrase “money doesn’t buy you happiness” and that is sort of true. Money can buy happiness because it is a tool; it is neither good nor bad and has no meaning but that which we place on it. If we agree money doesn’t buy us happiness, we shift our focus from those green pieces of paper to the logical conclusion that we create our own happiness. Having money can free up your time; when we have time freedom we are able to do the things we enjoy, and doing what we enjoy creates happiness.

Chasing money will only keep you in the rat race. We are not suggesting having money and being wealthy is a bad thing, quite the contrary. Remember money can buy happiness. When we have lots of money, we are able to make a positive impact on our communities and the lives of those we care about. People who are “rich” can help more people then those who are broke. We should all strive to be financially fit and create a life we love.

To do this we need to come fully alive. Money Can Buy Happiness


This became my reality after venturing out of the corporate world and into entrepreneurial endeavors; I’ve never looked back. Money Can Buy Happiness

There is a super cliche saying that states, if you love what you do you will never work a day in your life. Well that is simply not true. The fact is you will probably work harder because you are passionate about what you are working to accomplish. Lori Greiner stated it best. Money Can Buy Happiness


The best part of being an entrepreneur is you are paid in direct correlation to how many people you help on a daily basis. When you help enough people get what they want, you will get what you want. If you offer a product or service that provides a solution to other peoples problems, you have a winning idea and stand to make a lot of money. Feel good about being a solutionist; your reward is money.

There is no evidence to suggest that buying material goods will makes us any happier. We may feel a moment of fleeting pleasure about our purchase. Now think about buying a trip somewhere and investing time with friends and loved ones; those are the moments that will create lasting happiness. In this example money can buy happiness.

In America, it seems there is an epidemic of retail therapy, a way to mask the issues we are facing. If you are in a place where you’ve created debt, a place where you have more month left than money, it is time to take responsibility for the situations you find yourself in. When we speak poorly about others, including creditors, and constantly shift blame, our words and actions speak more to our character than the person you are attacking. Money Can Buy Happiness

Listening To Your Inner Voice

Listening to your inner voice is an easy way to ease the struggle of “What am I supposed to be doing?” “Am I making the right decision?” and “How do I attain peace in the day to day grind?” Have no fear friends, you are intelligently designed. There is within each and everyone of us an innate wisdom, an internal navigation system which consistently has our back.

Have you ever met someone and instantly felt the positive or negative vibe they were giving off? Due to this initial encounter, you decided this was someone you wanted to steer clear of or maybe they were someone you were wildly drawn to. Some call it a gut feeling, some call it intuition; whatever you call it, listening to your inner voice will pay dividends.

Listening to your inner voice

When you step into a new situation or meet people, ask yourself a couple of questions. How does the encounter feel? Does it feel negative, is there uncomfortable resistance or does it feel good and comfortable? When you pause for a moment of silence, what naturally pops into your mind, what is being spoken within? I say in a moment of silence because quieting the mind and opening up to listen will allow us to let go of over thinking. Ask yourself why it feels the way it does. Remember listening to your inner voice will guide you on your way.

There are instances in life where everything can make logical sense but not feel right. It could be the business deal you have been searching for which looks perfect on paper, but your intuition for some reason says, “don’t do it”. Accept the no; your intuition is speaking up on your behalf. Be mindful of this nudge and follow where it is leading you. Ask, “what is the next right action?” Listening to your inner voice reveals the answer to the question being asked.

I believe that the more you trust and follow the guidance given by listening to your inner voice, the easier it is to hear it and obey. When listening to your inner voice there is a shift towards the path of peace. I have no tangible proof to share on this except for what I’ve personally experienced and that is more than enough for me. I wish the same in your life.

Kim Basinger said, “I feel there are two people inside me – me and my intuition. If I go against her, she’ll screw me every time; and if I follow her, we get along quite nicely.”

Be aware that if you go against listening to your inner voice, which we have all done at some point in our lives, remember that the universe has an amazing way of working itself out. If you get off track, it will instantly begin to bring you back to where you need to be. Listening expedites us to the greatness within each of us in achieving the purpose you were placed here to accomplish. There is only one of you in all of time and the world is waiting for your expression and impact. Let us be a light to the world by living through the light within us.

A book that has been a huge inspiration for me and I recommend it to everyone, Miracles Now, by Gabrielle Bernstein. It gives tangible actions to experience life in a state of peace, living in the flow and being 100% purpose driven. I have been blessed by her teaching. I honor her and the mission of empowering others to teach these messages. Together we will change the world we live in for the better. If this resonates with you and you want to learn more, please pick up a copy of Gabby’s book and check out the free workshop she offers.

How To Read Food Labels

Have you ever grabbed an individual snack from the convenience store, ate the whole bag and then realized there were actually 4.5 servings in the tiny package? When reading a food label the first thing we should consider is the serving size. None of the other numbers matter until we have figured out the total number of servings. The focus should be on the number of calories consumed. Why the calories? Well, most of the calories in these processed packaged foods are empty calories meaning they lack nutritional value. The daily values listed on the package are deceiving because daily values vary with age, gender and whether your pregnant. We want to cut down on saturated fat, trans fat, cholesterol, sodium and sugar so look at these numbers carefully. Remember that your multiplying these numbers by the serving size. For example, if the label says: Total Fat 6 g and there are 4.5 servings, your actually consuming 27 g of fat! It is also important to read the list of ingredients and avoid the items we have previously discussed, such as, HFCS, MSG, aspartame, sucralose and hydrogenated oils. According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, average portion sizes have doubled and even tripled in the past 20 years. The average fast food meal nowadays contains a staggering 1,500 calories! With 2,000 calories a day recommended for the average person (depending on gender and age), it is no surprise so many American’s are overweight and obese. Inflated portion sizes are changing what Americans think of as a normal. how to read food labels

Implementation: Now that we know how to read food labels we have the ability to make smarter decisions when choosing the foods we put in your body. Become a food label reader. Watch your portion sizes. When snacking put the amount you plan to eat into a bowl instead of eating right out of the package. Its easy to overeat if you do not measure out your servings. Split an entree with a friend or save half for later. Most restaurants serve more food then one person needs at one meal. how to read food labels

Affirmation: I like eating healthy, it makes me feel better. how to read food labels
