Change Your Paradigm – What If Money Didn’t Matter?

Change your paradigm

There’s more to life than the American Dream we’ve been sold. In this series I present an alternative way to view the world and your surroundings. There is so much out there to experience, enjoy, and incorporate into our lives. It’s all there for the taking, but getting there is the hard part. In this series I show how to to change your paradigm to give yourself a fighting chance of taking the path less less traveled to live up to your potential. How you act on what you discover is up to you, but I hope you take your own plunge into a happier and healthier life.

What If Money Didn’t Matter

It’s a simple question. What would you be doing with your life right now if money didn’t matter?

Is how you spend your days Monday through Friday, and the weekends as well, maximizing your happiness? Do you feel like you’re progressing toward your full potential?

This short video narrated by Alan Watts is so on target I feel like there is very little I can add. Please take a look.

This week I encouraged all the single people out there to focus on being awesome and they’ll attract good things in life, like a partner if they want one.

To me, life is all about problem-solving. Not pursuing your calling in life often comes down to excuse-making and fear. We all come from a unique set of circumstances and limitations. For all the success stories out there that you read about, often neglected are the tough times trying to plow through all the problems faced along the way.

Envisioning a different reality, one where pesky limitations like money don’t exist, can help you narrow in on your purpose and passions. Have confidence in yourself that you have the wherewithal and capacity to make your dream a reality. If it really is your passion you are pursuing, chances are you’ll be the best at it and money will find its way to you. More importantly, happiness will too.

    Hi Adam,

    This is inspiring. I have a similar background Engineering / MBA. Have spent my whole life so far working for corporations, and most lately a consulting firm. But this week I’m taking the plunge (a little bit). I quit my job, and I’ll be moving to Costa Rica, to help my family. I’ll still have a bit of a security blanket and will keep working half-time on consulting projects, but I hope this will lead to a happier me.

    Great piece! I’m in a place right now where I’m struggling to find the meaning in my life – having been a bit of a vagabond and not staying in one place for more than 2 years in the last half decade has left me with incurable wanderlust. Everything seems to have fallen in place right now – a secure job, real estate, and three weddings to plan (we’re internationally matrimonially inclined!) but I’ve recently had a good long think and chat with my partner about what we want, *really* want, from our lives… and a nomadic life on the road is definitely on the cards. And we have a plan for it, so that’s something to look forward to and work towards! Thanks for the positive words, Adam!

      Thanks for the inspiration – being on the road that long! I’m sure whatever you decide will work out well. In the end, it’s up to us to make the most out of life no matter what cards we’re dealt. Good luck!
