You can’t make money and be a good, loving, and spiritual person at the same time. If you want to be rich then you are greedy, and greediness does not lend itself to being kind, compassionate, and loving. That’s a limiting belief that I’ve heard from all kinds of people including family members, friends, and coworkers. It’s as if people who want to make money are horrible people. It’s as if being without money makes you some sort of spiritual being that is living a hard and, therefore, right life. I don’t see it this way at all. I don’t think that you need to be a jerk to be rich and successful or focused on not making money to be a good person. In fact, I think that being a good person who wants to make money is the ultimate combination for success.
Don’t Feel Bad For Wanting To Make Money
I see a lot of bloggers, vloggers and online business people who get harassed for wanting to make money, even if they are doing some really amazing things for people. It doesn’t matter how much they give away or do things for free, people freak out when they try to make some money from what they are doing, so they are scared to ask for the type of money they deserve.
I’ve actually seen people talk about Christie Marie Sheldon and her Unlimited Abundance program negatively. They will leave her comments such as ‘If you were really trying to help people, you wouldn’t charge them to take your course!”
That makes no sense to me! This is what she does for a living, so of course she should charge. Why should she give away her course for free and live from a state of lack? How would that help her do things to help more people and change more people’s lives for the better? If she didn’t make money, she couldn’t reach out, travel, and meet clients. If she didn’t make money, she would be stressed and unable to exert as much energy as she does towards helping people.
If you want to succeed in making money online – or anywhere for that matter, then I highly suggest you work from both a spiritual and a business minded place. In other words, I suggest you stick to your ethics, focus on being loving and kind, focus on staying connected to something greater than yourself, focus on what you can offer other people and the world around you, and focus on offering something awesome to people that can earn you millions of dollars.
There is nothing wrong with being someone who is kind and loving and sells something to people that will benefit their life! Nothing! That’s how this world works. We sell things that can benefit people and we buy things that can help us.
People Respect A Business Person Who Means Well
When you do things from an ethically sound place, people can see that. They recognize that you are a decent human being who is doing things the best that you can according to your morals, and they respect that.
It’s not hard to spot someone who is working from a place of self-interest only. Just as I talked about in my EnChroma article, poor customer relations is a huge indicator of your intent behind your business. The way you deal with people can make you appear like the guy above or the guy below. Which one would you rather look like?
Life Has More Purpose
When you are committed to being a good person and you have a strong intent to make money, you have a much clearer vision of what you are here for – what your purpose is. As many people will tell you, doing what you feel is aligned with your inner self is the way to success. It’s the way to stay motivated, determined, and action-orientated in your days, which is the ultimate way to success.
When you are focused only on making money and do not pay attention to your ethics, you will do things to earn that extra buck that will make you feel bad. You will lie, cheat, steal, and do things that you know are wrong. That will pull you away from your purpose, which ultimately – no matter what it is – includes helping other people in a genuine way.
You Don’t Feel Bored With Life
I have a friend who didn’t want to work and thought of money as evil. She wanted to sit around, smoke weed, meditate, and focus on being kind of loving. And she did just that for about a year. And guess what? She was miserable! Even though she was a good person, she felt like she was missing out on something. And even though she felt like money was evil, she always complained about being broke. (By the way, I don’t think that you need to smoke weed to be a good person or spiritual or anything – it’s just something she did so I needed to mention it.)
And, of course, I’ve known many people who focus only on work, work, work. They don’t bother meditating, praying, focusing on inner growth, or focus on being kind, loving, generous, and compassionate. Their focus is solely on working and making more money. They would never help someone out for free or give something away. They hold onto their money in every aspect as tightly as possible. And, I’ve never met one person like that who was completely happy or completely successful.
I’ve found that the happiest and most successful people in life have a balance. They are focused on becoming successful and making a lot of money, but they also realize that they are not just a physical being here to make as much money as they can and then die. They have an acute sense of awareness that helping other people, being kind and compassionate, and making other people’s lives better is a part of what we are here for, and they focus their work around that principle. They combine being a financially successful and a good person together, and they feel alive because of it!
Life Isn’t As Stressful
When you are focused only on making money, life becomes stressful. You stop focusing on things that matter like relaxation, love, and fun, and your choices and behaviors revolve around whether or not you are going to make money.
Without relaxation, love, and fun, life is stressful! All work and no play means your mind and your body don’t get any downtime to connect with your inner self and reboot.
Alternatively, if you focused only on being a good person, you don’t have any time to make money! When you don’t have money, you can’t pay the bills or buy all those things that help you connect even more to your inner self – like a vacation or that new spiritual course that you want to take. You are stressed because, whether you like it or not, this world is made up of physical things and you need money in order to buy them. That’s just the way it is!
When you combine work and rest, life becomes much more peaceful! You are able to enjoy life and re-energize, and you are able to maintain the motivation and determination needed for success.
Can You Be A Good Person Who Also Wants To Be Rich?
Think of it this way: If you are a good person now, then being rich will only give you more ways to be a good person. You will be able to help out people you love, do good things for this world, and do good things for yourself. That’s an amazing reason to want to be rich.
It’s not money that makes you bad. As T. Harv Eker says in his Spiritual Laws of Money course, money is only a tool. It doesn’t change who you are. If you are a good person now, then you will still be a good person when you are rich.
So get excited about being rich and doing good things in the process. That will help you get the motivation and determination to do what you need to do to make money.
