So many of us struggle and strive and work hard to make money. But it doesn’t have to be this way.
Work can be joyful and fun and meaningful, even if you aren’t in your ideal position just yet. It really doesn’t matter if you’re working as a bartender or a receptionist, a doctor or a garbage collector. “No matter what we do, we can make it our ministry,” Marianne Williamson says in A Return to Love. “No matter what form our job or activity takes . . . we are here to minister to human hearts. If we talk to anyone, or see anyone, or even think of anyone, then we have the opportunity to bring more love into the universe.” And, as you know, loving energy attracts more of the same.
It’s also important to remember that money is nothing more than an energy of exchange. We can grab at it, cling to it, and part with it grudgingly—and thereby experience more of that. Or we can allow money to flow into and out of our lives in the same easy and effortless way that air flows into and out of our bodies, or water flows onto the beach with every wave, then flows back out to the sea. It’s all part of an endless cycle: in and out, give and receive.

Luck is a funny thing. Most people believe it is just that, luck. But the universe knows differently. It knows that what we call luck is the result of focused intention, an open mind, and a willingness to follow an envisioned path.
When I was twenty-three years old, I had the great honor of working as an assistant for John Schlesinger, the Academy Award–winning film director. When I landed that job, I thought, “I’m the luckiest girl in the world.” But that’s not telling the true story. This is.
For many of us, the question is not, What is the meaning of life? The question is: What would give my life meaning? We want a reason to get out of bed in the morning. We want days filled with joy, and work that allows us to express our true selves. Here, we bring you several processes so you can create work you’ll love, along with inspiring Real-Life Success Stories.
You can tell what you believe by what you get.
Most of us have picked up beliefs that just don’t serve us. We got them from our families, at school, at work, from the media, from friends, and from plenty of other sources. These negative, resistant, limiting beliefs not only feel lousy, they often keep us stuck, unable to manifest the things we really want in our lives.
“Many of us have beliefs that limit our success—whether they are beliefs about our own capabilities, beliefs about what it takes to succeed, beliefs about how we should relate with other people, or even common myths that modern-day science or studies have long since refuted,” Jack Canfield and Janet Switzer write in The Success Principles: How to Get from Where You Are to Where You Want to Be. “Moving beyond limiting beliefs is a critical first step toward becoming successful. You can learn how to identify those beliefs that are limiting you and then replace them with positive ones that support your success.”
Unfortunately, many of our limiting beliefs feel so normal that we don’t even notice them. We perceive them as facts, rather than as mere beliefs that can be questioned and then changed.

You’d be hard-pressed to find another topic as emotionally charged as money. In fact, psychologists say it’s easier to get people to talk about their sex lives than to get them to open up about their personal finances.
And it’s not just that we don’t want to talk about money. Few of us pay attention to the thoughts we think and the feelings we have while we’re interacting with money.
Interestingly, most of us believe we continue to think those same thoughts and feel those same emotions about money because our external financial experience has stayed the same. In other words, most people would say, “I’m frustrated about money. I never have enough. As soon as it comes in, it goes out. I can’t feel better about money until I have a lot more of it.”
Well, I am here to tell you that if you’re waiting for your money situation to change so that you can feel better, you have it all backward.
