Money does not matter

When I stopped worring about money is when I started to live a richer life!

– started a new attitude on life
– started a new way to look at myself
– started a blog
– started a new career goal to be a motivational speaker
– work at an elementary school now
– moved to Florida
– worked in the Southern Caribbean on a cruise ship
– this summer I will be working on a cruise ship in Canada/Alaska

These are only some of things that have happened. If you read this far I want to note this as well….

In this time frame:
– I make $5 less an hour
– I have paid off all my credit card debt!!!
– traveled to more places in this time frame then I have ever traveled my whole life.

The list goes on.

I am a positive person. I am an Eagle Scout. I  am a restaurant waiter. I am a deli clerk. I am a Design Director. I am a cake decorator. I am social media coordinater. I am an events marketer. I am a Para Professional for students with autism. I work very well with children of all ages. I am a writer. I am a Motivational Speaker. The skills continue on much more.

Money did not get me all of this; motivation, heart, networking, and a positive attitude got me what I have and were I am today.

Love my life, love your life, love life!

Secret Money

With the holidays approaching each day we worry more about money, and having enough of it; enough to buy all the gifts we want and enough to pay all the bills. Some of you despise the holidays because you cannot afford to buy gifts.

 Let me shut the holidays off for a moment. Some of us are in constant worry about money, for a variety of reasons. I recently reread “The Secret” by Rhonda Byrne, and below I have included an excerpt from her book, about money.  I certainly recommend reading this book if you have not already. It pulls together many great concepts to try, like the Law of Attraction.

 To attract money, you must focus on wealth. It is impossible to

bring more money into your life when you are noticing you do not

have enough, because that means you are thinking thoughts that

you do not have enough. Focus on not enough money, and you will

create untold more circumstances of not having enough money.

You must focus on the abundance of money to bring that to you.

 

You have to emit a new signal with your thoughts, and those

thoughts should be that you currently have more than enough. You

really do need to call your imagination into play and make believe

you already have the money you want. And it is so much fun to do!

You will notice as you pretend and play games of having wealth

that you feel instantly better about money, and as you feel better

about it, it will begin to flow into your life.

(Rhonda Byrne “The Secret”)

Sounds kind ridiculous at a first glance doesn’t it? It really isn’t. As I have said in the past, nothing is ever going to work if you don’t believe in it first. Now if you want to become rich overnight with only the thought that you will be rich over night that is ridiculous. This concept of already thinking you have enough money happens over time.  It is something you need to stick out, have faith and the right attitude, and you will see results. All results will certainly vary person to person, depending on your efforts with your new attitude toward money. If you need more money in your life, it starts right inside your head and eventually will manifest itself in to the extra cash you need. It is all about the Law of Attraction which Rhonda Byrne, Anthony Robbins, Bob Proctor, Zig Ziglar and many others have talked about. What you think about you draw to yourself. With money, if you constantly are worried about paying your bills you will always be worried about paying your bills. Get in the frame of mind that you have enough money to pay your bills and things will start to turn around. It works that way with all scenarios involving money.

 This concept of Money and the Law of Attraction has worked for many people I know, including my sister, who I cherish very much. She struggled with money for so long. Financial issues, employment issues, and she dug herself out simply by following the advice of Rhonda Byrne. Rhonda has helped my sister in many other ways as well; She is more financially stable, she is in better health, and she is in a deservingly outstanding marriage with one of the greatest guys she has ever meet.

 When I first read “The Secret” I was overwhelmed and skeptical but once I started to believe, things started happening to me, and for me. As far as money, I too was a person who was always in a struggle for money; I have been up and down all my life. But I first truly noticed changes in my life on the subject of money when I went back to work for a previous employer. I am getting paid the same now as I was before and life has drawn me back to work there. I have also been fortunate enough to make even more money on the side for multiple things as well.  Now, I am not rich or completely out of debt but I started this wave of attraction by simply visualizing a life where my bills are paid, where I can do what I want, go where I want and buy what I want. Keep those positive thoughts dominant in your mind. I was able to save enough money to fix some expensive things on my car. I am now able to buy things to help me boost my path forward to motivational speaking and working on a cruise ship. I have been able to do some fun things that my friends have invited me to. I am so grateful for the life I lead and what and who I have in it. I hope everyone knows that a life of gratitude is a positive life indeed.

 So if you find yourself living pay check to pay check, not able to pay your bills or even find a job, what do you honestly have to lose by giving in to the “Laws of Attraction” and manifest this extra money into your life. Start today, start right now! Have faith and patience as everyone’s time frame with success is different.

Alan Watts Famous Quote Friday

“Better to have a short life that is full of what you like doing, than a long life spent in a miserable way.”

Alan Watts

Alan Watts was a philosopher, writer and speaker. British born but moved to the United State in his teen years. Better known for his Eastern Philosophy, but he studied many religions and his main interests in life were personal identity and a higher consciousness.

His words are what everyone wants, a life full of things you like. This can easily be achieved with the right mind set and motivation. Sure miserable things will happen in our life but let us not focus on those things. We as humans spend a lot of time focused on the negatives in our life, the things we don’t want, when really we should be more focused on the positive things. Give more of your attention to the things you love, the things you want to do. Don’t give so much attention to the difficulties of your path to the things you want but more so feed your mind with the ideas that you are on your way. Tell your mind that you are already there. All Alan is simply saying is do what you want with your life and if you don’t like it change it now. This is your life and this is your chance to live it, so if you are miserable change it now. Fill your life with things you want in it not things you don’t.

Have a great weekend everyone.

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.

FREE LOVE $1

YOU HAVE TO CHECK THIS OUT! 🙂

All our lives we meet amazing people and see amazing things. Several years ago today Michael Morris simply wanted to brighten peoples day on his birthday for just $1. His time with us was short but beautiful. I was not fortunate enough to meet this wonderful person Michael but I was however lucky to meet his sister Andi Morris who is building something wonderful, in Michaels memory, to brighten peoples days. I will be brightening peoples day today and Andi would be eternally grateful for others who participate as well. Andi is carrying out a tradition that has grown so much in such a short time.

FREE LOVE $1 EVENT

 

Andi MorrisWrites:

In honor of Mike’s birthday, we will be continuing a tradition that he started. He called his event “Free Love One Dollar” and it was simply a means to brighten a stranger’s day. Participation is easy:

***Get some $1 bills (even if you can only afford 1!)
***Get an envelope for each dollar and decorate it (You should probably include the phrase Free Love One Dollar or in memory of Mike Morris or both and/or other encouraging words and pictures, so people understand the dollar is there to make them smile)
***Take the dollar in the envelope and place it on a car’s windshield. Some ideas for venues are hospital parking lots, nursing home parking lots, churches, etc. The possibilities are endless, but there are a few places to avoid: mailboxes (that’s a felony), private property, illegal things 😛
***Take pictures! Make it fun, bring lots of people, race each other, smile 🙂
***Post pics and share stories

We are encouraging EVERYONE to invite ANYONE!!! This event is to share love in the memory of Mike. He would love to see everyone celebrate his day with happiness and sharing love with anyone and everyone, just as he always did. This can be a HUGE event! Invite friends in other states and countries to share the fun on September 25 🙂

 FL$1

In loving memory of Michael Jason Morris
September 25, 1979 – June 5, 2012

This is last minute notice for some of you but as you can see it is super easy if you would like to participate.

Let us all brighten someone’s day today and have fun doing it!

Marilyn Monroe FQF

“I believe that everything happens for a reason. People change so that you can learn to let go. Things go wrong so that you appreciate them when they’re right. You believe lies so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself, and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.”
-Marilyn Monroe

Marilyn Monroe was born an orphan and became one of the most iconic actress, model, singers of all time. That alone shows inspiration that anything is possible. It takes a strong person so shuffle through life and keep the attitude that everything happens for a reason. It is a scientific fact that people physically and mentally change all their lives. Learning to let go of that which was once wonderful is the real challenge. Our whole life should be a continuous learning experience. Things will go wrong but we need to focus on the good that came from those wrongs. Every time when something has fallen apart in my life something better seems to fall into place….weird how that work. There is no time limit on your life just keep going. When you get to that point of assumed perfection and it falls apart you got to once again step back and see what good came of it, trust that everything happens for a reason, take chances, and move on. Your life is an adventure not a chore. Just like thing go wrong with your car things will go wrong with your life. We need maintenance too. No matter what path your life started on find your yellow brick road and proceed. When you are falling, when you least expect it someone is going to be there to catch you or pick you back up.LET THEM!

.

Marilyn Quote over load! These all speak to me in one way or another, and carry their own meaning.

.

“I restore myself when I’m alone.”

Marilyn Monroe

“I’ve never dropped anyone I believed in.”

Marilyn Monroe

“I don’t want to make money, I just want to be wonderful.”

Marilyn Monroe

“A wise girl kisses but doesn’t love, listens but doesn’t believe, and leaves before she is left.”

Marilyn Monroe

It was a long quote explanation this week but thank you for reading. Have a great weekend everyone.
