Access to All the Money in the World

Money can be a big quandary when a person is on or considering a job search.
  • How much should I ask for so that I leave nothing on the table?
  • Am I asking too much? Too little?
  • What is my monetary value in the market?
  • How do I negotiate for more?
  • Is their first offer their best offer?
  • I am underpaid. I need to get to market but will a new employer give me that 25% increase?
  • I am wearing the golden handcuffs so how could I possibly change jobs?
These questions can make even the most courageous job seekers quake in their boots.

I have good news though. Get ready for this…

There is an unlimited supply of money.

Need some proof-check out this article from Market Watch: {Link}

In a nutshell, it states:

There is $1.2 quadrillion invested in derivatives alone.  

And if you believe money refers only to currencies such as bank notes, coins, and money deposited in savings or checking accounts, the total is somewhere around $80.9 trillion.

Here is another way to think about it. If I give you $20 and then you take that to the store and give it to the clerk who then gets a portion of that back in their paycheck and they go out and buy flowers for you for your birthday the money, in fact, has never disappeared. It just keeps moving around.

Yet, even with all that money out there, I can already hear the scarcity mindset raising its voice.
  • Yeah, but I am not part of the top 1%.
  • I am an XXX and we only get paid XXX.
  • I am not in the entertainment field, a pro-athlete, a trader or the president of an organization that invented that gizmo that everyone decided they had to have so that money is not available to me. Those folks get all the money.
  • You have to have money to make money and I am just squeaking by.
  • And so on…

I had some of these same thoughts and an equal amount of fear to go along with them.

Then I made a decision to think and act differently about money.

The Secret Code to Accessing all that Money

To that end, I signed up for a workshop with the fantastic Tosha Silver called “It’s Not Your Money”.

It changed me. This was not a workshop about how to “manifest” more money.

It was more about opening yourself up to the idea that you have what you need now and you will receive what you need when you need it in the future, so you can relax.

I'm aware that this is a concept that requires a lot of diligence and faith to keep the mind chatter quiet.

In the program, she had some suggestions that could help with this.

She suggested we clean things out to create more space for things to come in (I emptied out 6 4-drawer filing cabinets, got rid of clothes I had not worn in years, emptied my email inbox and released many books).

This felt fantastic.

She also suggested we repeat to ourselves “it is easy for me to receive”.

I did that a lot!

Your Job Search Just Got Easier

When you come from a mindset that you have everything you need right now and trust that your financial needs are going to be met then your job search can be more about the type of work you want to do and the type of people you want to work with in your next position.  This is an abundance mindset that makes everything, including your job search way more fun!  

Sit back and watch the money flow to you.


For the next week, when you feeling that scarcity mindset raise its ugly head, recite a Bob Marley-inspired mantra “Every little thing is going to be alright because it is easy for me to receive.”  Feel free to sing.
