You've heard it before—money can't buy happiness. Yet there is a clear link between money and emotions, says Marianne Williamson, spiritual author, lecturer and host of her own show on Oprah Radio
. Jean talks to Marianne about the connection between finances and faith:
- Charitable contributions can make you happy. For instance, if you give money to a cause you believe in, no matter how little, you'll feel good to be part of the solution.
- Money will come to you when you are true to yourself. "Money is simply a natural result of living in harmony with every other aspect of your spirituality," says Marianne.
- You don't have to achieve your financial goals to have happiness—you just have to live with integrity and live in virtue.
- If you are in a job you don't enjoy, ask yourself if you are really showing up every day. Showing up means not just being there, but putting your best face—and effort—forward.
