December 26: Finances

The topic of finances could have, and maybe should have, come up before Christmas, before all of the spending was done.  The fact is, however, the more we give the more we tend to get.  For some reason, the spirit of generosity and giving seems to attract more abundance into our lives.  This is something I learned from my wife, and try to remind myself of, especially around this time of the year.

That being said, I want to share an incredibly enlightening quote by Jim Rohn:

“When we get our finances in order and get money out of the way, we will become amazed at what we are able to do with the other areas of our lives.”

Once we work on and acquire discipline, control, and mastery in  one area of our lives, these qualities, characteristics, and attributes, spill over into every other area of our lives.

Financial independence and wealth enable and empower us to do, give, and enjoy more.

It is important for us to be debt-free.  It is important for us to think about, make choices, and take actions, which will create a lifestyle of financial independence and extreme abundance, as soon as we possibly can.  If we teach our children this, and consistently point out the benefits of becoming financially independent, we will be empowering them towards a life of true wealth, abundance, giving, and contribution.

Can you imagine a life where money isn’t thought of, argued about, or stressed over?  Can you imagine a life where you can put ALL of your energy into creating the beautiful mind, excellent health, and life you want and deserve, rather than spending the majority of your time, focus, and energy on earning enough money to merely survive?

TRUE wealth has very little to do with money. 

For some reason, however, money continues to be a constant worry and stress for far too many people.

We all know people with lots of money who are completely and utterly miserable.

A great example of wealth-building to follow is Robert Kiyosaki, and his wife, Kim.  They were both interviewed by Brian Rose, on his YouTube show, The London Real.

Robert and his wife Kim have helped me IMMENSELY with my mindset when it comes to finances.  They are worth researching and following, and his first book, RICH DAD POOR DAD, is ABSOLUTELY worth purchasing.  The teachings in this book will empower ANYONE to get ahead.

Tony Robbins teaches:


If we are generous, giving, kind, loving, and helpful, then having lots of money makes us more of those things.  If we are rude, unkind, selfish, and mean, having lots of money makes us more of those things.

Today’s challenge for myself:  Today I will learn more about money.  I will find books to read, people to talk to, and content to watch or listen to, which will help me learn more about money, and how to be more responsible with it.  

One of my favorite money mentors is Kyle Cease, the comedian.  Type THE ILLUSION OF MONEY-KYLE CEASE into the YouTube search engine, and prepare to be entertained and educated on the topic of money, in a way you never have before!  What he shares about money is pure genius.

Suggested books:

When it come to money management, the book TOTAL MONEY MAKEOVER, by Dave Ramsey, is the perfect place to start:

For those who are already financially fit, this book, MONEY MASTER THE GAME, by Tony Robbins, is a great guide on how to create even more abundance:
