Using Money to Fulfill Your Purpose

Updated: Aug 6, 2021

You might think the words ‘money,’ and ‘purpose’ shouldn’t be in the same sentence. After all, we’ve been taught that money is the root of all evil right? And it has become a common assumption that anyone living a good and authentic life shouldn’t be interested in money or wealth or possessions. But what if you reframed your ideas about money to see it as another tool? Another resource to draw on to achieve your life’s mission? How would that feel? Consider the following in shifting your money mindset.

1. Define your true goals

What do you want to do with your life? It’s likely that it isn’t taking on a lifetime of debt just so you can have a bigger and better car or house than everyone else. Do you want to make art? Write? Open a health and wellness business? Run guided tours to exotic places? What will make your heart sing and your soul dance?

2. What do you need to reach your true goals?

Set aside your fears of what people might say and think about what you need to make your purposeful life a reality. What skills and resources do you already have? What do you need to learn or buy before you can start? It could be as basic as accounting software to support your new business or networking conferences, hiring a coach, or building a website. Money is an essential tool that enables you to get what you need to reach your goals.

3. Reject the notion of self-denial

There’s no need to punish yourself for living the life you want. But you do need to be realistic about the income you need to keep you fed, clothed, and housed. There’s no shame in being able to provide for you and your family’s needs.

4. Redefine what money means to you.

Think of money as a possibility, a means of opening doors, creating new ventures. Even if you don’t want to give up your day job right now, you can have a positive impact on your life and the lives of others because of how you choose to spend your money. You can reach and serve the people assigned to you when you have the resources to build what they need.

Whether you want to become an entrepreneur, a healer, or a mindful purchaser and donor, money can be a powerful tool for you to have a positive impact on the world.
