Can you have money and not be happy? Can you have money and be contented? Can you be financially and spiritually abundant? How To Achieve Financial Happiness? According to our podcast guest for today, Mr. Finnian Kelly, the answer to all of these questions is YES. Yes, you could be financially abundant but not happy, and you can be financially abundant and be fulfilled. What made him realized that? Is he in the right position to be saying so? Let’s have a quick recount of Finnian’s earlier life.
As a boy, Finnian felt his parents are not interested in what he does and he felt abandoned and unloved. That made a big hole in his life. He tried filling that hole with the achievement of external things. He was driven by materialistic success. He began accumulating wealth, lived in a ski resort, owned multiple 7-figure businesses, received multiple industry awards, and was married to the love of his life. He thought those material achievements will fill the void in his heart- the feeling of being unloved and unappreciated. But the feeling of being lost came back after her wife left him. He was again in the dark, losing his way. According to him, when there’s nothing left to chase, you have no choice but to go inwards. He looked for divine guidance, and he found it. He worked with a spiritual teacher and discovered the power of breathwork. He then found himself, returned to wholeness, and remembered that he is love, abundance, and manifestor. Today, he is teaching everyone that YOU are too. You are love, abundance, and a powerful manifestor.
He is huge in teaching people how to be financially happy. How to be financially abundant and happy and contented at the same time. Practical tips on achieving this including finding spirituality, being present, being intentional, discovering breath work, self-compassion, journaling, books, and morning routine. Be sure that you are ready to take notes and to get them to action because you’ll be receiving huge nuggets from today’s episode!
