“Dreams are often most profound when they seem the most crazy.”~Sigmund Freud
So tell me. Are you a little crazy? No, I am not questioning your sanity. I want to know if there are times in your life when you’re able to get a bit silly, let loose, have fun, and really live life to the fullest. Because after coaching countless clients about their finances, I’ve come to the realization that most people (and couples in particular) simply don’t have enough fun.
The majority of us live life on autopilot or we’re always so stressed out and overwhelmed that our head might explode at any moment. And when it comes to money and wealth, it’s a love/hate topic most people avoid at all costs.
Money is SOOO serious. It’s shelter over our heads and food on the table. It’s men in dark suits judging our credit score. It’s wounds from the past. It’s bills to be paid. Uggg. That’s no fun at all. But it doesn’t have to be that way.
For many people, there’s nothing fun about money unless you have lots of it.
Historically, the definition of wealth has always been a number. If you have $1,000,000, you’re wealthy. But wealth is so much more than that. I like to add the CRAZY part to the definition because that’s what’s missing for so many people—and by crazy, I mean fun, passion, enthusiasm…joy.
My definition of Crazy Wealth™ is not dependent on a number; it’s having the ability and freedom to enjoy and experience life to the fullest. And that can happen at any number.
What’s the point of Crazy Wealth™? I am sure you’re familiar with the Law of Attraction and how like attracts like. When you feel and think positive things, you attract positive experiences. When you think and feel negative things, you attract negative experiences. So if you are constantly worrying about money, chances are that will be your experience tomorrow too. BUT if you can feel joy and other positive thoughts, you can break the cycle and start attracting more positive experiences.
You need to feel the positive feelings and thoughts about money FIRST and then you will attract the opportunities and experiences that will increase your wealth. It all comes from and starts with you.
In the second part of this article, I’ll give you some ideas of how to start getting a little crazy every day. But in the meantime, can you comment with some thoughts about free ways you can have more fun in your life?
