#60: Rising Above Financial Stress

You are here on this planet for a reason. But all too often, financial stress can get in the way of your ability to live a joyful, fulfilling life. Have you ever thought, “I will be happy when…” or, “If only I didn’t have to worry so much about money…”? The fact is, the money problem is nothing more than a distraction of the worst kind because our longing for it deceives us into believing that the only way to get past it, is to focus on it.

The good news is, the real solution is probably easier than you think, and more within reach than you realize.

Discover how life is like a series of cogs and gears, and what you can do to experience traction instead of friction.
