55: You Won’t Be Happier with More Money

The Wealthy Mom MD Pocast with Dr. Bonnie Koo | You Won’t Be Happier with More MoneyHow many of us believe that life will be better or we will feel happier when we have more money? I’ve touched on this topic previously on the podcast, but I’m taking a deeper dive today because this is something I see come up for so many people, myself included, and it’s not a belief that is serving us.

I can already hear some of you arguing with me, thinking, “Say what you want, but you can’t tell me life wouldn’t be better with an extra $10 million.” And while that statement can feel true, I’m certain there are countless examples from your life already that can show you that it’s simply not the case.

Join me on the podcast this week to discover why we believe that life will be better once we… fill in the blank, and why this thought isn’t serving us. I’m sharing what the best reason actually is for setting and chasing our goals, and an exercise in appreciating what you do have right now so you can move forward in gratitude and abundance.
