Do you ever wake up dissatisfied with your life? With your career? With what you’re getting paid? With where you’re at in your life? Are you making money a bigger problem than it needs to be?

I grew up in a middle-class family, in the heart of America, believing for a long time that I should just be happy with what I was given. I worked a 9 to 5 job in advertising, with a decent salary and I quickly bought into the idea that I shouldn’t ask for more, or climb too fast, especially since I was young.

Then one day I started asking questions and exploring what other people were doing to create riches and wealth, and I started realizing that the “glass ceiling” mentality I was functioning from was a lie. The ceiling is only there, if you believe it is.

Money is everywhere, you just have to know how to get it.

Here are my top four tips to start creating more money and more of everything you desire your life to be with total ease.

Tip 1: Get clear on how much it costs you to live

One way to start creating more money in your life is to get really clear about how much money you desire. Most people have no idea how much money it costs them to live. Start by gathering up all of your expenses and get honest with yourself about the minimum amount of money you require each month. Then, use that to know how much you need to create each month. Knowing exactly how much money you require allows you to also know what it is you’re aiming for. After all, if you don’t know you’re looking for a new bright pink hat, you won’t recognize it when you find one.

Tip 2: Be willing to ask for it

Some people know how much they’d like to earn, but don’t feel worthy of asking for it, or shut themselves off from receiving it when possibilities present themselves. Be willing to both ask for and receive the amount of money you need to live, the way you’d like to live. Every 6 months, look at your expenses again and ask: how much does it cost me to live now? As you create more money, be willing to add more to your life and allow your monthly expenses to grow. If you stay in creation mode, that number will keep expanding and you’ll create more and more money every year. What if every year, the amount of money it costs you to live increased by 20%?

Tip 3: Find what you’re great at

Money doesn’t make you happy. Life, however, is much more fun if you’re willing to be happy and include money in it. Write a list of 10 things that are so easy and enjoyable for you to do, you couldn’t imagine anyone paying you for it. Then, look at the list and ask, “What can I be or do to start getting paid for this?” If you love taking care of people, an elderly person might pay you to check in and buy groceries for them. If you like connecting and talking with people, you could get paid to make phone calls all day or be a great sales person. You’ve got to find what it is for you. Money is everywhere, the possibilities are endless. What if the key to finding it, is finding what it is that lights you up and asking for the money to follow?

Tip 4: Never give up

Never stop aiming for whatever it is you desire to create as your life. If you love your business but need to get a second job to make it happen, get a job and make it happen. Don’t give up on the idea just because it doesn’t happen immediately. Keep asking for whatever it will take to bring your desire into creation.

Remember to continuously ask yourself these helpful questions: What else is possible here I’ve never considered? What would it take for this to show up with ease? How does it get any better than this? By asking these questions you continuously open yourself up to even greater possibilities.
