If Money Did Not Matter

Today’s post is a journey. I hope that you all have the time to take this short journey. It will inspire you, give yourself the time to read on. Now I know some of my posts can be a bit lengthy but the way I see it if you make time to read you make time to succeed! Now who doesn’t want success? If you complete this small journey today I only ask one thing. Tell me one major thing you are working on or working toward in your life. A question to be refined at the end.

When you were a kid growing up, what did you want to be? Be an astronaut, a chef, or even the president. What did you want to do with your life? Scale the tallest mountain, meet someone famous, or even travel the world. How many of your dreams have been fulfilled? One of the main things holding us back from what we desire most is money.

let me introduce you to Alan Watts a philosopher, writer, and speaker(play video below)

What if money did not matter? Your options are limitless, you can be whatever you want to be and do whatever you want to do. Our own human nature and society has groomed us into the idea of earning a living to just simply earn a living. Very few of us go on earning a living doing what we love. Most of us continue doing what we are doing just to continue doing what we are doing. No that is not a typo think about it! Are you in a job just for the money? Do you wish you could be doing something different? Stop wishing and make it happen. This is your life.

This whole concept has been a huge part of big changes in my life and only now has it come into the light for me. I have been a professional graphic designer for over 10 years and all of the sudden I lost my passion for it. I was always looking for that better job with better pay. Aside from design my ultimate goal has always been to become a motivational speaker. I never saw money in it so it got kind of lost inside me. The struggles of life have surfaced it and brought back a beautiful dream. My life path is changing to so many wonderful things I can hardly keep up. People keep asking what my main view point will be as a motivator. I have Ideas of course but I still don’t have a solid answer.I do however have a monetarily free field of vision to take me there to find out.

None of us seem to give ourselves enough credit and that is were our dreams fall short. You have to believe in yourself and you have to believe in the path that takes you to the things you dream about. I refer you to another video of a song I posted awhile ago. I will be standing in the hall of fame and even if it is one person at a time everyone will know my name.

here is the song and post https://upwithmarc.com/?s=hall+of+fame

I can go on for hours about all the new thoughts and things in my life but everything I say and what Alan Watts says in his video is basically FOLLOW YOUR DREAMS! If you put money first in your life you are never going to achieve your goals past looking for more money. You can be who you want to be if you believe in it enough, if you are determined enough. Your life will evolve around your passions. Love your life and do what you want with it.

NOW IT IS YOUR TURN! Post a comment of one thing (or several) you would like to do if money did not matter.

The inspiration for this post was started from Upworthy where I found the video by Alan Watts. What a truly amazing site.

I have also added share buttons on the bottom of my posts. If you like what you read, please share this with your friends.

THANK YOU SO MUCH EVERYONE I am grateful for your following and support. Enjoy the rest of your week.

  1. Great Article! I can’t say I dreamed of doing what I am doing now when I was a kid bcuz the option was not available to me. I created it from scratch instead. My dream is my business and all the places it will take me and I am living it and I put energy into it everyday. The money came to support me in the transition and now the business is making money ❤ I believe you have to live your dreams for them to support you, not wait untill you can support your dreams.

    • I 100% agree. Live your dreams and let them support you. Starting something from scratch is about as original and creative as it gets.Taking what is not available and making is available is an outstanding accomplishment to be proud of.

  2. First of all I find it interesting that our conversation at dinner tonight talked about a lot of points you made in your post today, and I just read your blog for the first time now. Second of all, I don’t think people realize how money stands in the way of our dreams. I told you tonight that I wanted to be a Yoga teacher so bad. You asked what was standing in my way, and my answer was money. In the end, life is not about how much money you made, it’s about how you lived your life. Did you do what you wanted? Went to the places you wanted to go? Became what you wanted to become? You said yourself if you want to make it happen you will. You will find the means, the money, and the way to do it.
    The next question you should ponder is, what are you going to do to make your dream happen?

    • Ahhhh yes. It was fresh on my mind! Money physically and mental stand in the way of many parts of our life. My quick suggestion as to what to do to make your dreams come true is simple write every step down. Tackle them one by one, if you are able to fail and still move forward you will be at your dreams before you know.

  3. following your dreams is so important. It makes you feel alive and enjoy what life has to offer. Anything is possible even with the lack of money.
