The Trouble With Money

“Money is the opposite of the weather. Nobody talks about it, but everybody does something about it.” ― Rebecca Johnson

There are a lot of emotions surrounding money especially in these turbulent times. Our self esteem, relationships, family life, careers and homes are profoundly affected by the lack of, or fear of, losing money. Money has a lot of power in our lives. How do we take back our power?

What if we lived our lives as if money was not a problem? What if we believed that it will show up when we need it? It sounds unrealistic and naive. In reality though, hasn't that happened many times in your life? It just shows up or we figure out a way.

You can be in fear or be in action. You can create a plan or be open to the guidance that you receive throughout the day. Can you be flexible and willing to take a risk of your energy and time? If you get an invitation to a teleseminar, conference or networking event, do you consider it or think it's a waste of time? Would you start a friendly, light conversation with some one in the elevator, train, grocery line or restaurant or just stay quiet going about your business? Do you get in on the conversations on Twitter and Facebook with some comment with added value or just post about how your day went? Social networking is a great way to communicate with people. I have met wonderful people and contacted old friends who answered within minutes. You never know where it can all lead.

Be yourself, be open and befriend. Money may come and go. Your best resources are people and connection.
