Hi this is Joan and this is episode 51 of The Prosperity Show. Thanks for tuning in. Today we're going to answer the question, why can't I earn as much money as I want to? But before we get to that, let me tell you that our main site is prosperityplace.com, where you can find lots of information to help you improve your relationship with your money and yourself. Incidentally for those of you who are local in the Santa Fe area, I have started a Santa Fe section. Just click on the link on prosperityplace on the left sidebar that says "In Sante Fe, New Mexico" and you'll find out about the marketing our micro-business workshop we're going to be doing on July 29.
So today's topic is brought to you by one of our listeners who sent me an email and she said that she's been using my book for about a year and really has made some wonderful changes in her live, and really appreciates the information.

First of all, Jane said that she'd like to be earning $10,000 a month consistently. I have a feeling that her current income is nowhere near that. I would guess it's, it's about half that, maybe a little more. When setting your income goals, I know that a lot of the prosperity material suggests that you think big. And I'm not suggesting that you not do this. For example, if you want to be a millionaire, or you want to make ten times what you're making now. Unless you have a way of generating sudden money, like winning the lottery, or getting an inheritance, or selling a piece of property that suddenly brings you money, if you're looking at income, not net work, but income, and how much cash flow you have coming through your life. Then you can think big and have big goals, but it really works better when you break that big goal down into doable goals that have realistic solutions. So that, for example, if you...
