We’ve all heard the saying, “Money can’t buy happiness.”. We end up hearing this and repeating this so many times that we actually start to believe this lie. …yes, I said it’s a lie!

No, money isn’t everything, and I wouldn’t value it above my soul, myself, or my family, but we have to acknowledge the fact that money can make some pretty awesome things possible. I don’t know about you, but I personally love traveling, going to Major League Baseball games, eating yummy food, and having enough money in savings that I can sleep soundly at night. Oh, guess what? Money bought all of those things. Thus, money CAN buy some sort of happiness, and believing otherwise will do nothing but repel money from your life.

Money funds my experiences, money brings me freedom, money provides for my family, money allows me to put my soul’s purpose into action…money buys happiness.

 
 

In this episode, I share about:

  • My thoughts behind the saying “money can’t buy happiness”.

  • Why believing this lie is pushing money away from you

  • What our money can bring us that makes us happy, like travel, experiences, freedom, and peace-of-mind

  • How money can actually improve on the things that already make you happy

  • How you can be happy with or without money, and why money is simply a tool

  • Reflecting on my birthday and our trip to the beach

Memorable Quotes:

“Goodness this life is good. Not because of the things we have, but because of the memories we’re making. Not because of the money in our bank account, but because of the experiences it allows us to have. Not because it looks good on social media, but because it feels good in the soul.”
