There are many times in life where you feel like you just need more money.

It can be a result of a current crisis, or simply out of a want for a different financial situation.

While wanting more is not bad, fixating on a certain amount keeps your mind only focused on the numbers which can unintentionally make you more externally motivated instead of internally motivated.

You’ll always be chasing what you want to see instead of identifying how you want to feel, which is the true indicator of your well-being and overall financial wellness.

You see, the real reason you want more money in the first place is to experience something new, have something you’ve always wanted, or to relieve yourself of your own financial ceiling.

So instead of attaching yourself to the money, you should attach yourself to the intention behind the money that you’re currently making or want to make.

This ensures that you’re prioritizing your life in accordance to how you want it to be, instead of simply looking at your bank account as a measure as to how to live your life.

Not only does this encourages your personal expansion, it strengthens your capacity to reach various levels of your purpose, passion, and prosperity to be all that you can be.
