How To Make Money Work For You

Written by on December 21, 2018 in Conscious Business, Economy with 0 Comments

Money makes the world go around. Big bucks are what everyone wants. Everyone wants to be a millionaire. Yet, very few actually become rich and are able to live the life they have wanted to live. Money has become so crucial in our lives that we have forgotten to seek happiness. Instead, we seek money, gold, riches, a luxurious life, wealth and property.

We have become so materialistic that we forget to pay attention to our emotional and spiritual well-being. The attitude most of us have towards money needs to change. Most people have the wrong attitude about money and making a living. They assume that money can bring happiness, when in reality it is the person himself/herself that can create the pond of happiness.


We must learn how money could work for us; and unlearn the expectation that we must work for money, says Tom Butler-Bowdon in his book entitled “50 Success Classics”. He further adds that we must know the difference between an asset and a liability, and buy assets in order to become rich. Tom states that instead of waiting for extraordinary opportunities, we must seize common occasions and make them great.

How do we make money work for us? Let’s take an illustration of my personal experience with the transformed mindset about money. Since I believe that I am a spiritual being, I try most of the time to fulfill the needs of my soul. I know when my soul craves for something and when my physiology craves for something. This distinction is particularly important in making choices.

I recently bought an ethnic nose ring in a store called “Taurus” in Bangalore. This ring I know my soul wanted, or rather my inner true self wanted to experiment with and hence I bought it. I buy books so that I get something valuable out of them.

I invested 6 months researching and writing my non-fiction book and spent 7000 rupees on printing 100 copies. I still haven’t made any profit after my official book launch and book sale, but the mental satisfaction is what matters to me now. The praise from my kith and kin, the impact that I have been able to create through my writing is the cognitive profit I have received. I have in the process created my “brain child” and the contentment is great.

Now my book is available in major bookstores in Bangalore, and in the Alliance Française de Bangalore library and Jain University library (Jain University is where I am currently pursuing my PhD in Cognitive Psychology and Transpersonal Psychology). By publishing “an important book” like this, as the person who released my book said, I have left footprints behind the sands of time and I have perhaps created a page in the books of history.

The value of an object or thing is based on the inputs that you imbibe from it. For instance I bought a world map for 110 rupees. For the creator of the map, that is the cartographer, it is priceless. For me too, it is priceless because I have a penchant for maps and I get to pore over the map while having a hot cup of tea in my room or in a café. Thus the value for money is met and I learn a lot in the process. It is also aesthetically appealing and serves as a home décor.


We must aim for success, massive success and then as a consequence millions of bucks will automatically follow suit. Massive success usually slides in, unexpected. As Tom remarks, “The things we rightly desire come to pass when we have taken the clutch off.” This resonates with the one of the spiritual laws operating in the universe. After achieving massive success, we must not put a full stop to our list of feats. I say this because the top of one mountain is the beginning of another mountain and this attitude is the genesis of Transcendence.
