Episode 30: Why Are You Working So Hard for That Money?

“I’m not willing to go broke and not enjoy my life. If we are more clear on what brings us joy and work really hard for that, you’re then making a very clear intention for why you’re working so hard for that money.” — Sydia Bell

Have you stepped back and asked yourself why you’re working so hard? Why is it that you’re wanting to make more money?

 Is it really for that house, or car, or vacation? Or have you been working hard to buy things that only fulfill a temporary void, distracting yourself from reaching your ultimate dreams?

 Sydia Bell and I tackle the grand question of “Why are we making money?” As the owner of the Everyday Creative, she teaches individuals how to live with more self satisfaction and content by simply bringing order to your everyday surroundings. She’s a minimalist with a grand soul, and we all have something to learn from her.

What we tackle in this episode:

  • The first step to work towards what you really want to do with your money

  • Why clarity and intention create satisfaction with your work

  • How self-discontent can be a strong motivator

  • Why you have to be uncomfortable to build your dreams
