If Money Were No Object...

Last Update: April 11, 2014

Today I had the opportunity to be taken through an absolutely amazing visualization process and it's this that was the inspiration for this blog.

The only thing I can say about it is simply Wow! It's incredible what our minds are capable of!

It kick started my brain into gear and made me think about setting goals and about the barriers we put in our own way which can actually prevent us from succeeding. Sometimes we can be our own worst enemy!

So, I thought,"What if we remove those barriers in our minds? How would that affect our plans and ultimately,our successes."

Join me in this fun session. Throw caution to the wind and let your thoughts run amok - nothing can stop you!


Would you live a life of pampered luxury having your every need met, being waited on hand and foot OR like me, would you need to do something valuable with your time? I just know it would drive me nuts if I didn't have some kind of project on the go to keep me sane!

I'm so interested in this and itching to find out what everyone here would do because at the minute, we all have a goal here in WA don't we? We're all here to learn how to build a sustainable business to provide ourselves with a decent income aren't we.

But what if we didn't have to strive to make money, what would happen to our dreams and goals then? Would they just vanish into thin air? Would it take away our motivation?

Do you think you would still want to learn and improve your skills? Would you still want to help people or would you leave that to others while you live a "dream" lifestyle?

Maybe you have a hobby like golf for instance - would your goals change to wanting to do this all day long?

Please, tell me what you would do!!

I'm fascinated to find out because we have such an eclectic mix of people here in WA. We're all from different countries, have different cultures, traditions and outlooks on life, it will be interesting to find out if for all of this, we still have the same kind of visions.

So come on, fill me with inspiration! Tell me all about how your new life would be if money were no object! Describe it to me in as much detail as you possibly can, leave nothing out.

Let your creative juices flow and your imagination run wild because Anything is Possible if you only let it!

I can't wait to hear from you!

Maria :-)

First, if money was not an option and I had enough. I would hire a driver to drive me around. The roads are getting frustrating. Next I would finish my world tour, stopping in China for a couple of months. I would make sure that my brother and two best friends never had to worry about money. Would purchase a home, two story with upstairs for bedrooms and a huge master bedroom and bath downstairs. Three car garage and about several thousand acres of land with a 30 foot brick wall all around the property. Once all things were in place, then I would look for a woman. I would act like I worked for a living so she would not know I was wealthy. If she was okay with that then I guess we would live together. I do not believe in marriage. You should be able to live with someone without a paper contract. I know many who live that way now and it works for them. I would secretly help those who needed it. That is what I would do.

Finish your world tour? You have started it? And ok, a driver sounds good. You would make sure your family was ok which is great and i am loving the detail of your home and land... do you see it in pictures or words Jimmy? And ooh yes you don't want any gold diggers as a partner!! And I see you have the same allergy to wedding cake that i do! Ha ha.
And being a secret millionaire just shows what a nice guy.. you would do it out of pure kindness not for the recognition.
How lovely. You are definitely in my friends group!! :-)

This is one way to find out what you really love to do. Because most of us do things because of some other almost unrelated motive. For example, we are here developing businesses because we want to make money, not because we really love what we are doing.

In fact, a good questions to ask is, "What would you with you life if you had all your needs met?"

Hi Lemm, thanks for joining in here. So what you seem to be saying is that we are motivated by money and not really by our passions, the things we really love? A perfect opportunity would maybe to combine our passions with our business! Happy Days!

And yes that would be a great question to ask!

Yes indeed....it's a real blessing if you can find what you love to do, and the money (or any other reward) comes to you as a bonus. Loving and enjoying what you do is already a reward in itself.

Hi Maria,

What an interesting topic, and your timing is strangely fitting. This was a topic with real weight to me this week. For a split moment there was a chance I was going to come into some serious money, but ultimately it didn't happen. In any case at the time I was wondering, "What if this is real, and I inherit this money?" I asked myself some serious questions. I took stock of my life and itemized how money could improve so many things.

Here's what I knew right away:

1) I'd pay off all of my outstanding debts (simple enough)

2) I'd set aside enough money to care for myself and my family for the rest of our lives. Determine an amount that would ensure that I would never have to worry about it again, and neither would my parents, my husband or our children.

3) I'd find a modest but comfortable home with enough space for the clan to all have "their own space", but not much more space than is needed.

4) Travel A LOT.

5) Continue to write and work and stress about my ranking, and whether my content is any good, because my passion is still what my passion is. The only thing that would change about my work, is that I wouldn't give a hoot or a holler about sales or advertising or PPC. I would still care about ranking and traffic, because if you're a writer, there's merit to being read. If a tree falls in the forest and no is around to hear it......yadayada....

6) I didn't know what #6 was, and still don't. I know it begins like this: "With the rest of all my money I'd....." but I'm not sure how it ends.I'm sure I'd do something charitable with some of it, but it would have to be important enough to come close to the things I love aggressively like what I listed here. I'm sure I'd save some trees and protect the welfare of some animals, and certainly leave a substantial amount for future generations to inherit later on. But, I don't know. Once you've provided the essentials for yourself and your loved ones, how much more does one need?

Is that detailed enough? :-)

Best to you,
Marcel

Marcel that is amazing! And what a coincidence - I'm sorry it never happened for you because your plans are meaningful and have great purpose. So you would get yourself totally solvent, look after your family, have a practical but not greedy lifestyle, expand your horizons with travel and keep your passions close to you ?
Loving the competitiveness with the rankings! :-)
You write so well by the way.
Thank you for sharing that and I hope you get that opportunity!

This is a simple answer for me. I would invest in helping others. :)

If money were no object I would still invest in the project I came here originally to create, which is a cognitive thinking and behavior program to better ones thinking to overcome all obstacles in ones way to happiness and success.

This includes changing ones outlook and habits and learned behaviors.

We have used this program in the prison system with awesome results and are in the process of converting it into an online program.

Now, if money were no object of course I could be doing this work on some beach side property......... :)

Commendable Shawn, especially when you are so musically talented, not using it would be a waste! :-)

This is a good question Maria, I like to think my idealism would not vanish completely, but it may get modified a little. All requests for help would have to be redirected to my Paradise Island, or to a cruise ship where hard work is discouraged.
If money really was almost limitless I suppose doing projects similar to what Bill Gates does would be the ideal, but we can only dream.
