“If it’s not broken, don’t fix it!” It’s a message I’ve heard and said thousands of times in my life. I bet you have as well.
Logically, it makes perfect sense. Why bother fixing something if it’s working?
What if we’re just fooling ourselves and it’s NOT working?
What if we’ve convinced ourselves that how things are working is “good enough”? Or what if we don’t see it’s broken because – at least for now – it’s working for us?
I don’t know about you, my friend, but my ability to deny, rationalize and make things okay is legendary. So, too, is my ability to settle for less than what is possible.
BUT NO MORE.
Because, like it or not, the way we do money isn’t working. Even if you think it’s working for you, it’s not working for everyone. Nor is it working for our planet. And if it doesn’t work for the planet and people everywhere, at some point in time it will stop working for you as well.
It isn’t working for Judy – a talented entrepreneur who is drowning in debt. No matter how hard she works, no matter what marketing approach she tries, no matter how much money she makes, it’s not enough. She’s constantly robbing Peter to pay Paul to stay afloat. And it’s EXHAUSTING!
The way we do money isn’t working for Denise – one of my latest clients. She and her husband have a great income. They pay their credit cards off in full each month. Their only debt is their car payment and mortgage. But they’re living paycheck to paycheck with ZERO in savings.
They’re not alone. Currently, 57% of Americans have less than $1000 in savings. (Source: GoBankingRate survey)
Melanie and her husband are the picture of The American Dream. They have a nice house, cars and fun “toys” like ATVs and snowmobiles. They take great vacations and give their kids the best of everything.
Yet the more “successful” they become, the more pressure and stress Melanie feels. She recently began working with me because it’s starting to affect her physical and emotional health. She knows something has to change.
She’s not alone. According to the American Psychological Association (APA), money is the top cause of stress in the United States – affecting 72% of Americans.
All THAT is here in the United States – one of the wealthiest countries in the world.
Now consider that, worldwide, more than 828 million people don’t know where their next meal will come from. (Source: World Food Programme) And the United Nations has estimated that 1.6 billion people are either homeless or living in inadequate housing.
By now I’m guessing you might be wondering why the heck I’m sharing all of this [DEPRESSING] news with you.
It’s because it’s time for us to realize that the way we do money isn’t working. The model we’ve ALL grown up with for money and abundance is broken.
And I’m inviting you join me in doing something about it. For yourself, for others AND for this planet.
Even as I type, unprecedented wildfires are destroying homes and vegetation in Canada right now – not to mention the air quality in parts of the US. Now consider that two of the primary causes of environmental destruction are economic – poverty and the drive for corporate profits.
Clearly, my friend, the way we do money IS broken. The model for money and life that we’ve all grown up with isn’t working in today’s world. It’s been built on a premise of scarcity that is perpetuating scarcity. Not just financial scarcity but also mental, physical, emotional AND spiritual scarcity.
Even if you think it IS working for you, my friend, what if there was an EVEN BETTER model – one that increased your own experience of abundance and well-being AND that of others?
I’ll be the first to admit that I don’t have all the answers to the myriad of problems our world is facing. But I DO have a new model for your relationship with money that is PART of the solution. And I’m eager to share it with you in the FREE Activation Calls I’m offering.
If you want to find out what this model is AND the difference it can make in YOUR life and our world, reserve your spot now.
What you do matters, my friend. Together, we can make a difference!
