Are you passionate about a service you wholeheartedly provide and yet feel awkward when it comes to charging for it? Do you struggle to know the value of the work you do? Or did you ever wonder how could you overcome money consciousness issues? If you said yes to at least one of these questions, then Dr. John Demartini’s book is for you.
I included this book on my 2022’s reading list because I wanted to become more confident about putting a value on the services and products I provide to people. I have been always interested in helping others but I never really felt comfortable about charging for my helping services. This is a huge problem when you are in the helping professionals league and you want to take charge of your financial well-being.
Although I was expecting a lot more from this book, I found precious examples and philosophical nuggets that have inspired me to stay on track and keep learning. My goal is to find solutions that allow me to help other people, which I love to do, and make a living for myself and my family at the same time. After all, if you provide a service or product to people, it’s only fair that you receive something in return, as Dr. John Demartini describes in its “Principle of Fair Exchange”.

One aspect I love about Dr. John Demartini’s philosophy is that he approaches money and business from both material and spiritual perspectives. He puts great emphasis on the quality of your consciousness and values. If you want to do work that you love, your intent must be fully aligned with your values and the natural laws of the universe. You can find what your intent and values are by putting the book’s exercises into practice. In each chapter, you will find at least two of them.
Philosophy apart, you will also find some investing guidelines in chapter 7, Evolutionary Investing. I found this chapter rather interesting and yet a tad rushed through. After reading it once, you might need to come back to it a few times in order to grasp what Dr. John Demartini suggests you do. I wish the book had more of this kind of information and that it was written in a more intelligible way for those who are not so familiar with money investing.
If you are interested in learning more about how relationships and your life purpose can make a difference in your business development and growth, I highly recommend you this book. It’s a good start to rethink business and to see it as a service to humanity rather than a means to an end. It also helps you feel empowered to pursue a career in which you do what you love, and you are also fairly paid for it. After all, it’s possible as Dr. John Demartini illustrates in this book.

I compiled a list of 12 books to focus my attention on throughout 2022. These are books I have been really wanting to read and they cover different aspects of well-being. Some are more spiritually inclined (e.g. Alchemy of Light) while others are more finance-oriented (How to Make One Hell of a Profit and Still Go To Heaven).Keep reading
I did enjoy Stephanie’s book a lot and I strongly recommend you to peek on it, if you are into journaling and writing as a method of self-expression and personal transformation. You will find many interesting prompts across the entire book so that you can work your writing flow and perhaps discover more about yourself within specific topics to which you never really paid much attention to.Keep reading
