Its Not Always About the Benjamins, Baby

Often when I receive emails from this list with folks, Telling me that they have discovered their life's purpose but they don't have the money to do what they need to start living their purpose.

Please, please, please do not let your lack of money stand in the way of you living the life that God has planned for you to live.

There is always a way to do what needs to be done regardless of how much or how little money you may have.

If the lack of money is an issue for you, start small.

Let's say that you see yourself opening a store of some kind but right now you don't have the money. Don't say to yourself, when you get the money you will open your store, because chances are, the money will never come. How do you expect it to come when you are doing the same thing for the past five years. If you don't have an extra $1000 right now, than what will make you think that you will have an extra $1000 five years from now.

You wont, unless you make some changes in your life.

Instead of telling yourself that you don't have enough money to start living your life's purpose. Ask yourself, how can I start living my life's purpose with what I already have. You may be amazed at the amount of ideas which come to you that will allow you to live your purpose on a shoe-string budget.

Let me give you an example. Once, when I decided that I wanted to promote a boat ride, I was terminated from my job and had NO money. But, I did have credit cards. I used my credit cards to fund my project and never looked back. I'm not encouraging anyone to go into debt by using their credit cards, but what I am trying to get across that if you really, truly want to make changes in your life you will do whatever it takes to make your dreams come true. You must have that type of desire in order for it to work for you.

ACTION POINT: Find a way to start living your life's purpose regardless of how much money you have in your bank account. Make a list of things that you can do, right now, that will cost you little or no money, yet it will bring you closer to your dreams.
