Making money is pretty easy. I know that sounds arrogant and I apologize if your Drunk Monkey reacts, BUT that’s the problem. Your Drunk Monkey has a story about money that limits you. Money is easy. Yet, everyone says it’s hard. So you become convinced. Everyone says it takes hard work. And, that’s partially true.
What most people don’t realize is that it is the RESISTANCE to work that makes it “hard.” One thing that makes it hard is failing to recognize the fundamentals of work like rest cycles. Consider this:
If you keep pushing yourself to produce you will burn out which stops you dead in your tracks. That often leads to panic and fear because burnout stops the money flow. To counter this, you must retrain The Drunk Monkey and you must treat the body in a way that gives you maximum energy.
Here are two spiritual ways to make more money. By spiritual I mean contextual or based on perspective rather than action. Change your perspective and you change your life.
1. You need to get The Drunk Monkey focused on something empowering. Try this: Go into a deep state of gratitude about the money you do have. Make lists of all the great stuff money has bought. Make lists of all the great experiences money has afforded you. Make lists of all the opportunities you have had because you had the money you had. This will simply put you in a great mood and open you up to more good. You get what you focus on…PERIOD!
2. Next, you need to take care of your money making vehicle. Also known as your body. If you abuse the body, then your ability to make money is hindered. The spiritual perspective is that Body is Temple. You must treat the body as such. I suggest you start taking your MEDS every day. Meditation, Exercise, Diet & Sleep (MEDS). Even one minute of meditation a day will change your life. Doing some push ups changes your state. Eating foods that give you energy is key to staying optimistic. Optimism is attractive to deals, money, and opportunities. When you are sleep deprived you can’t think straight no matter how much coffee you drink. You need to be in top form to make more money!
So, here’s what you do. 1. Get into gratitude, and 2. take better care of yourself using the MEDS methodology.
Take these two simple steps and watch how much easier everything gets.

Hello Mathew: Thank you for your message today.
“I suggest you start taking your MEDS everyday.”…when I read this I thought how arrogant! Read on and thought…thats genious..I love it – Meditation, Exercise, Diet & Sleep (MEDS). I meditate 20 minutes everyday and for the first 3 or 4 minutes thank the universe for all my blessings. Just as you stated, I think gratitude and focusing your mind on what you WANT rather than worrying about what you don’t makes all the difference. Having said that…I’m still waiting on my fortune..lol! Thanks for the great post.
Excellent. I’m listening to your audio books daily in the am. Major game changer for me. My daughter and I are talking about what’s going on In The world around us relative to what we’re learning listening. It’s saving me from drk mky driving my bus! Thanks Matthew.
Tina I am so happy that you can talk to your daughter about these kinds of concepts. It really helps to have a buddy to bounce stuff off of. Keep it up!
