If you believe money shouldn’t matter or that it’s just materialistic, you might not like what I’m about to say, but hear me out.

You see, spiritual growth and financial growth are two sides of the same coin. And, like all things in nature, both work together in an interdependent, cause and effect relationship.

Spiritual growth means going beyond the limits of our ego and constructed beliefs to realise who we really are, to own our worth, and to live in pursuit of our highest values, whatever they may be. If you understand the rules of natural law, you’ll know that financial growth is the natural response to spiritual growth.

I didn’t always get the link between money and worth. All my beliefs around money and how it should be handled were shaped by my upbringing.

You see, I come from a long line of loud Italians, and, if you know anything about Italians, you’d know they’re big on family, friends, food, and picking up the dinner tab. They’d practically burst an appendage in a headlong dash to settle the bill before anyone else. At a dinner where everyone’s Italian? Put it this way, if you’re that waiter, run, like your dear life hangs in the balance.

It was ingrained in me to always pay. It’d be rude not to. So, when I started working and earning my own money, I made sure I always picked up the tab. I wouldn’t even let a friend buy me a three-dollar cup of coffee, let alone a whole meal.

Putting everyone before me didn’t stop at dinner either. I rarely spent money on myself because, well, that would be selfish, but when I did, I felt guilty about it. I was taught to never ask for anything. My family were always there to help me when I needed it, but if I wanted something extra, a small indulgence just for me, would I dare ask for it? Mama mia. Never, under any circumstances, ask for anything. That was the other thing I picked up from childhood. So, of course, I never did.

These might seem small things. Some might even say traits like these are noble ones to have. But, here’s how it translated for me: every time I declined a friend’s generosity, every time I had buyer’s remorse, and every time I wanted something but chose not to ask for it, somewhere deep down, I told myself I didn’t deserve it. 

Little did I know it then, but my lack of self-worth was the very thing that kept deconstructing my wealth. I wasn’t living by the rules of natural law, so the money simply flowed out just as fast as it flowed in.

I didn’t really understand or give due props to the true value of money or what it physically represented – the measure of my worth.

Are you beginning to see the connection?

True wealth is wealth at every level: financial, spiritual, physical, emotional, mental, social, relational and vocational. The way to achieving it hinges on three things: what we think, what we do, and how we play.

What we think

There’s a difference between thinking you deserve to be wealthy and knowing you’re worthy.  When it comes to money, self-worth is everything. You have to know your worth, and I don’t mean in a superficial way like when I thought paying for dinner made me a good person. Your true self-worth isn’t limited to or defined by whatever your constructed beliefs may be. In fact, you have to bust through those limited beliefs in order to see it and claim it.

What we do

All wealthy people share one thing in common: they put all their focus on what they’re here to do, not on the money itself. Financial wealth is a byproduct, not the end goal. When you focus on your values and your life’s calling, rather than worrying about how and when the money will come, the money will come. It has to. It’s the law. True wealth happens when you take your focus off the money and immerse yourself, mentally, emotionally and physically, into the reason why you want it in the first place. 

How we play

And now to the money bit. How much money we have depends on whether or not we’re playing by all the rules of natural law. The number one rule when it comes to organising your money is this: always, at all times, no matter what, PAY YOURSELF FIRST. Not your rent, not your mortgage, not your bills, and, most definitely, not your friend’s dinner. 

When I learnt about universal laws and how they applied to true wealth, three things went through my mind: 1. This is so bloody simple and it totally makes sense; 2. Why isn’t this system taught in every school in every country around the world?; and 3. I’m going to share this with as many people as possible. I’ve been teaching the wealth principles for nearly 20 years and I’ve seen many thousands of lives transformed as a direct result.

The road to true wealth starts and ends in only one place. You. So, when you’re ready to declare your worth, the Universe is standing by with everything you need to guide you there.
