How Are You Going To Pay For Your Party? (Episode 53)
When you are planning a trip, travel expenses can loom large over you. But it doesn't have to be that way. Listen to the Mama Says Namaste Podcast to learn how you can pay for the party.
In this new season on the podcast, we are diving into this one beautiful priority:
Seek Adventure Together.
We live at our max income. We tend to live at full expense and it takes up all our time.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, (born August 28, 1749, Frankfurt am Main [Germany]—died March 22, 1832, Weimar, Saxe-Weimar), German poet, playwright, novelist, scientist, statesman, theatre director, critic, and amateur artist, considered the greatest German literary figure of the modern era.
It goes back to the mindset piece. People work with their heads down, banking on the time they will have "one day." Others are incapable of planning, simply having life just happen to them without any intention whatsoever.
Go back to the story of the Mexican Fisherman.

Ways to Leverage your income
AirBnB your home - are you okay with someone having sex in your bed?
Think outside of the box on how you may pay for something -
What can you downsize? Sell on Craigslist, Amazon, Facebook, etc, swap out kids clothes on consignment, have a yard sale.
What commodities do you have you can sell? Your services or your things?
This is a great opportunity to explore something on the side - your "side hustle" or expounding on your hobby and selling it.
What can you create into a recurring income - you produce it once and it continues to create money for you.
Explore a rideshare - can you pick up Lyft/Uber to do on the side? This is a great chance to meet people, potentially expand your business, and allow for some side income.
Don't just shoot it down as "I can't afford it." Start with the mindset - look at what emotions you want to feel. Start looking right now at what opportunities might be right under your nose.
Involve your kids in this process - let them know the expenses and brainstorm together on how EVERYONE can be invested in the process. Let this be a learning opportunity. Put up a chart on the wall to track your progress. Get excited together.
Money is only a limitation if you allow it to be. Speak your successes into a reality. It's amazing when you start to speak it into your life, how much it opens up the opportunities to make it happen. Calculate the cost and do steps back to see how much you need to save a week
Don't be your own limiting belief. There is such power in perspective and what "rich" means to you. Create your own happiness and choose to keep it at the forefront.
Speak the Law of Attraction on a regular basis. It's not "we can't afford that," it's "how can we make this happen?" Look at "is this a worthwhile investment?"
Your challenge - look at what you're dreaming of doing, and get down to the finances. Don't say, "I can't afford it", but, "is this a worthwhile investment?" Adventure starts with a mindset.
