Marry it
I’m sure it sounds like I’m joking but I’m not. Of course, I’m not suggesting that anybody marry for money only. However, I do see some Awareness-level relationships where one person holds a high-income job, while their partner provides support. Once again, both people must be deeply in touch with who they are, really love what they do and be open with their partner.
Whatever model you choose, the responsibility is always on you to be Aware of why you are doing what you are doing.

Manage it
Inside large corporations I’ve frequently witnessed people who truly enjoy the process of building a successful team, managing accounts or a specific component of a business. People who know themselves and truly enjoy this responsibility can easily derive true happiness and reap the financial rewards that come with management positions. In most companies, this is represented by a Director or Vice President title, signifying a level of responsibility in which your performance is directly related to the success of the company. These roles pay handsomely in exchange for the responsibility and time it usually takes to manage people and operations well.

Own it
Owning a business is the most common avenue to becoming a millionaire. This is any business that you build regardless of the industry or exact operations. It could be a dry cleaning store, a construction company or one of the many burgeoning tech corporations. The “own it” model of making money and happiness is the one where the joy comes in the development of something. You are still clear why you do what you do, but the joy is from the creation process itself more so than exactly what you are creating.

Tip 1 for Happiness & Money: LOVE WHAT YOU DO

Over the next 48 hours I’ll post 5 sure ways to make money and be happy doing it. Some of them will surprise you! Here’s the first one. 

Love It

imageOne way to experience happiness with your occupation is to love the operations of what you do. When I say operations, I mean the process that happens everyday in your business. For example, a grocery store’s operations include receiving food from the trucks that arrive, stocking the shelves, cashier’s operating the check-out stands and management of the daily staff and activities. If you love the hour-to-hour activities of what you do to make money, you’re probably going to be very happy.

I see this regularly with professional artists. I’m not talking about Hollywood’s biggest stars. I mean the lesser known actors and filmmakers behind the scenes—writers, producers and directors. For the most part, I have noticed that they are less driven by fame, and more interested in the creative process. I also see it in songwriters and performing artists. Pat Monahan who leads the band Train is a great example. I saw him perform in Vail, Colorado. In addition to the absolute thrill of hearing their music, I observed Pat regularly pause between songs and address the audience of thousands in a voice that sounded personal. I’m paraphrasing here but I recall him saying, “a sincere thanks to our fans who have supported our dream over the past seventeen years. There’s no way we could have made our dream come true if it wasn’t for you.” Shortly after, he sung the lyrics, “…it’s not just a daydream if you decide to make it your life.” If you research the band’s history, you will see they experienced their ups and downs, including rejection by a major label and a couple of the original members being let go. But Pat’s love for making music—the operations of his business—helped the band overcome all challenges. They produced their own music when others wouldn’t and replaced old members with new ones that shared their passion. They loved what they did and slowly built a business model around being able to do what they loved most. If they only wanted the emotional highs of fame, they probably would not have had the perseverance to become the world famous Train we know today.

Want sex? Start with intimacy

No gimmicks. No games. No shenanigans.

If your goal was to have lots of sex or “get laid,” you wouldn’t waste time being a pickup-artist. Two reasons why:

The ability to be intimate is the single most attractive quality a man or woman can posses.

When real intimacy is experienced, sex is the most natural expression of it.

Studies have shown that when a man admits to infidelity in therapy, he and his wife are more likely to have sex after the session than when they participate in any other dialog.

Really?

Yes. Because intimacy occurs when you move beyond your fears and insecurities. It’s when you’re raw and vulnerable. This happens when somebody finally tells the truth about something they’ve held back. Counter-intuitive to the reaction expected in a relationship, it makes the couple more attracted to each other.

Sex isn’t intimacy

Most people confuse intimacy and sex because they think they experience them together. What happens more often is that the experience of intimacy happens first and then leads to closeness or sex. If you’re thinking, “No, what happens before sex is two glasses of wine,” you’re not wrong. In that example the wine suppresses insecurities and you’re more comfortable being yourself around a potential mate. In that temporary, somewhat manufactured state of mind, a version of intimacy is created and a couple might express it physically. Please note—it does not require the wine!

Intimacy is…

Deep beneath all your psychological and cultural conditioning is a single desire. Man or woman, it’s a desire to be loved and accepted for exactly who you are. Few moments are more vulnerable than admitting to a spouse that you did something wrong—especially cheating.

Depending on your relationship status and experiences, this might be a necessary step. However intimacy does not need to occur in the context of making a huge mistake and finally fessing up about it. It can be on the first date, the second and throughout a relationship.

I’ll save you the debates between Freudian and Jungian psychology, and “Mars vs. Venus.” A person who looks you in the eye and tells you directly what they think, what they’ve done, or what they believe is cultivating intimacy. They are saying, “here’s who I am.” No gimmicks, no games and no shenanigans. Even if you don’t like what they say or believe what they believe, you feel as though you know what that person stands for.

Intimacy is knowing who you are deep in your soul and then consistently interacting with others that way.

Sound like a bunch of new-age personal development jargon? I can say it very simply too. Identify what you want in your life, spend your time moving towards it, and along the way share it with those who are interested, or you are interested in.

I tell you this: That is intimacy—and intimacy is the single most attractive quality a man or woman can posses.

Your intimacy

Very few people stop and take a close look at this during their life. Even fewer make significant changes and open themselves up to deep connection with others. However, if you do, the experience you’ll be rewarded with is powerful beyond words. The closest I can find is intimacy.

Even the best Hollywood actor or director can’t mimic intimacy. When you’re in a real conversation in the real world there are no lights, professional makeup or soundtracks. Nor is there the buzz of the nightclub or the pseudo confidence you had from arriving with your friends. There is only you and the person you’re connecting to. No matter what the circumstances are, it’s an experience of expressing yourself authentically and unabashedly.

When you do, all the “rules” are off. Beautiful women will go for otherwise mediocre men—because you’re honest and have conviction about who you are. The flip-side is true too.  A woman capable of real intimacy will attract nearly any man she wants.

Intimacy often leads to sex and outstanding relationships. It doesn’t mean every one will be “till death due you part,” however you will bond deeply with your partners because there are fewer layers in between. Most likely your experience of intimacy will be multi-faceted. It will include deep conversations, real connection, personal growth, and far more sex than you’ve had before. 

Spirituality and Sex?
