Money makes me Happy

Updated on February 21, 2008

Can't buy me love, but can sure enhance it!

I was talking with my sister the other day and she revealed that her 29 year-old-daughter was having trouble with her 10-year marriage to her high school sweetheart. Both she and her husband are great looking and have two darling girls. They own their own home (well, they pay a mortgage) and run their own company. Quite successful in anyone's eyes.

Except, they've run into some financial difficulties due to a bad investment and now they fight about their future almost daily. The daughter blames her husband for the money woes, he tries to look on the bright side but finds none in her eyes, and now their world is filling with worry, scorn and bitterness.

Ahh, that thing called Money.

There are many people now who are losing their homes, their spouses, their minds, their livelihoods, their ability to cope in this crazy economy. At the same time the internet is filled with twenty-somethings who have cracked the code to financial independence and are making money with every venture they offer.

I've been riding this merry-go-round for the past year and think I've got a real chance at making my fortune here, too, but it has been at a price. Most all the gurus will tell you they were broke and living in a one-room "shack" with just a chair and their computer before they finally figured out the "way" to riches.

They've all read the same books; "Think and Grow Rich," by Napoleon Hill, "Rich Dad Poor Dad," by Robert Kiyosaki, "As a Man Thinketh," by James Allen, "Scientific Advertising," by Claude Hopkins, "The Science of Getting Rich," by Wallace D. Wattles; and on and on. One thing they all have in common is that they DO read, a lot, and are constantly researching, testing, comparing, exploring, building relationships and creating new ways to make more money.

Another characteristic that impresses me is their sincere desire to help others. The Law of Attraction teaches one must consider others as well as self in the grand scheme of things. This is a fundamental precept to really being rich; the concept of charity and gratitude. Sure, there are rich creeps out there, but look at Bill Gates for example. He gives away more money each year than most people on the planet will ever make in a lifetime. He's built an empire, and he shares it.

No one who is truly healthy and wealthy is making money for money's sake, but for the opportunity to help others and improve the world. I really believe this. I too want to help my friends and family. So the more I make, the more I can share and make a difference in a positive way.

I've never made a lot of money, but I've always eaten well, traveled, lived in nice houses and had lots of friends. I've loaned my share to loved ones in need; I've given it away, I've lost it on poor investments; but in the end, it keeps showing up in my bank account.

I'm not young anymore, not old either, but certainly the clock is ticking on the back side of my life now. So for this last leg of my journey I'm jumping in the deep end and going for my first million bucks - make money my really good friend.

I'm an artist, musician and graphic designer. I'm also an internet marketer and I've recently found a great program that anyone can join for a small one-time fee and grow income passively. It's really cool - a great team with wonderful support and a fabulous system. I've searched all year for such a simple solution to enhance my income. It's easy to join - and it REALLY works.

I'll tell you about it soon.
