2 Weird Topics Smashed Together
At first glance, finance and spirituality may seem like totally unrelated topics.
If you come from the spiritual world, you might think that money is evil and we should get away from it as soon as possible.
If you’re more financially inclined, you might think that making money is all about strategy, process and hard work.
I can see where both sides are coming from, and I agree with both sides…to a limited degree.
But here’s the rub…
Spirituality of Finance
Sure, there have been many atrocities committed in the name of making money.
But it can also be used to help people. How many people can you help if you only have $100, versus $10,000,000?
The difference is huge.
On top of that…I hate to break this to you, but money is not going away any time soon. It’s nice to think that we should move to a system where we trade in barter, goodwill, gold coins and unicorn farts.
Don’t get me wrong, I believe that we should be doing more of all of that (except for maybe the unicorn farts), as soon as possible.
But the reality is that we are going to have to use a form of money/currency for a long time to come. It could be hundreds, if not thousands of years before we can totally get rid of currency as we know it.
So I feel that it’s time to embrace the utility of money and use it for good. When you have more money, you also free up your time to develop yourself spiritually.
You’ll have more time and resources to read, study and attend interesting classes/workshops.
I’ve personally discovered that trading can be one of the most direct paths to self development. The reason is that if you have any mental roadblocks to success, that will be directly reflected in your trading account statement.
Your trading account is obviously not a measure of your worth as a human being, but it can be a good indicator of what you’re struggling with internally.
If you’re coming from more of the finance/business side of the equation, then the bottom line is that developing yourself spiritually helps you make more money.
One of the biggest reasons that we don’t earn as much money as we want is because of our emotional traumas that limit our potential.
When you release these limitations through spiritual work, you also start to remove your limitations to making money.
Most people also report being happier, less stressed and have an easier time dealing with difficult people.
Then when you make more money, you have more time and resources to develop yourself.
It’s a positive cycle of improvement.
So that’s what I’m going to be discussing in this podcast.
If you’ve been through all of the self help books and watched all of motivational gurus, and you still aren’t getting the results that you want, then this could just be what you’re looking for.
This topic is not for everyone, but if you’re willing to keep an open mind and are truly committed to becoming the best version of yourself, then subscribe to this podcast.
