Whether you like it or not, money is the thread that flows through everything. The way society is organised means money is intrinsic to the way we live. But that can be a good thing. Would you really want to grow your food or make your clothes!! Thanks to money, you have the freedom to earn an income doing what you love – and pay for everything else!
Make no mistake! Your relationship with money does influence your experience of life. It’s an uncomfortable truth. Money is taboo, and financial matters feel complicated or risky. It’s no wonder millennials struggle to create an empowered relationship with their finances.
And it’s a problem that’s undermining the Financial Happiness of our generation.
For example, did you know that nearly ½ of Australians are living paycheck to paycheck with no Get Out Of Jail Account to fall back on? Yup, 1 in 2 Australians spend all their income each month.
We deserve better.
Our generation is here to break the rules. We don’t need to follow the conventions set out by our parents [and their parents]. We want different things. We have different values. We have different dreams.
We don’t need to wait for retirement to live the life we really want. Instead, thanks to Financial Happiness, we can live that life NOW.
Let me show you how…
Financial Happiness is a philosophy and a practice that guides you into an intentional relationship with money. Thanks to this intentional relationship, you can unlock the financial confidence to enjoy your life NOW while at the same time feeling excited about your big vision and plans for the future.
This philosophy changes everything…
Through Financial Happiness, your money is no longer a cause of scarcity, fear, or frustration. You don’t worry about how you’ll pay your bills or believe you’ll always have to settle for less. Money is no longer a reason not to explore your passions or live the life you want either. Instead, cash becomes a creative tool to express the truth of who you really are.
This lifestyle is possible because financially happy people have an abundance mindset. They know money isn’t inherently evil. They know money is a crappy status symbol. They know it’s not greedy or selfish to envision an abundant life. These restrictive paradigms are outdated; they keep us from our true creative power. They know their value and feel confident in their ability to create wealth. They have this confidence because they understand what money is…
And energy needs to flow.
Financially happy people use their money as a bridge between the seen and the unseen. Yup, your relationship with money can be profound spiritual work. As your relationship transforms, so does your creative and manifestation powers.
It’s how Financial Happiness becomes a practice that makes your dream life possible.
You’ll know you’ve created Financial Happiness when your money becomes a source of peace, purpose, and power.
Chances are you’ve created a lifestyle that depends on a consistent flow of income. [Remember, money is intrinsic to our way of life.]
But what would happen to your lifestyle if you lost your income suddenly? What if you got ill or were unable to work long-term?
Do you have emergency funds to sustain your current lifestyle without going into debt, taking out a loan, or leaning on your credit cards?
The harsh truth is most people don’t. Instead, they’ve created a lifestyle that absorbs all their income and are therefore living from paycheck to paycheck.
You downplay this problem – until your income dries up. In comparison, financially happy people place a high priority on creating rock-solid financial security.
Financially Happy people don’t have debt [or if they do, they have a robust plan to clear it]. They’ve invested in insurances such as income protection and critical illness cover – just in case. They live within their means too. They also have a Get Out Of Jail account – so they can cover their everyday living expenses for 3-6 months [if they need to].
Financial PEACE is about eliminating money worries. Dissolve financial concerns and not only is there more space for creativity and abundance… you feel happier too.
Do you feel deeply connected to your money – or do you end each month wondering where your income went?
We live in a consumer society. We’re bombarded with messages that convince us our next purchase will make us feel the way we want! Credit cards and personal loans have made it easier than ever to spend. As a result, a lot of people waste money on things they don’t care about.
No wonder that dream life feels out of reach.
Financially happy people have a very different relationship with their finances. First up, they’re clear on their purpose and their values. They know the direction they want their life to take and they know what’s most important to them – and they ensure their money aligns with these priorities.
This is how financially happy people can allocate every dollar intentionally. They practice intentional spending too, which means less money is wasted. They also have a cash flow management system in place for paying their regular bills and they set up designated bank accounts for longer-term goals.
As a result, they move forward financially every single month. And because spending, saving, and investing are aligned with their values, money becomes a source of joy.
Once you’ve created financial peace and you’ve connected a purpose to your money, you unlock power over your life.
Financially happy people know that money is a resource – just like time and energy.
They don’t just set exciting goals and intentions and hope for the best. Instead, they figure out the financial path that will ensure they can fund it.
For example, they don’t just dream of buying a house or travelling overseas. They calculate the finances they need to make these goals a reality – then commit to their path.
When money is used as a resource that can bridge the gap between the seen and the unseen worlds, you CAN manifest the life you want.
You don’t have to rely on hope or wait around for your circumstances to change. You don’t have to settle or play small. Instead, you can take positive and practical actions NOW to make your dream life a reality.
There are just FIVE steps to Financial Happiness. Here’s an outline:
1. First, you need CLARITY on where you are now. Calculate your current net wealth and understand where your money goes currently.
2. Next, create your VISION. How you do want to live? What do you want to create? How do you want to feel?
3. With your vision to guide you, you can practice INTENTIONALITY. Learn how to manifest and design your Financial Happiness Plan – so you can move forward each month.
4. Then take ACTION. Do the things necessary to experience your values NOW, while taking the steps needed to create your future vision.
5. Finally, stay ACCOUNTABLE. Get the support and guidance you need to stay committed to your path, so your dream life does become a reality.
Financial Happiness is a practice and lifestyle.
It’s a way of being that will leave you empowered around your money, so you feel empowered in your life. Choose Financial Happiness and there are no more pipedreams and no more waiting for the future [or even worse, retirement].
There’s no more financial stress or worries that stifle your enjoyment and experience of life.
Choose Financial Happiness and you’ll unlock a framework that makes your dream life possible – NOW.
