Isn’t it about time that you got right with money?
When I say “right,” what I am talking about is getting money right emotionally.
Money is a very controversial subject in our society. Mention money to almost anyone, and it brings out a certain level of discomfort because almost everyone lacks money.
Statistics say that 97% of our population works for 3% of society. Only around 4-5% achieve a six-figure income, and only one-twentieth of 1% of society achieve a seven-figure income.
So, why is it that so many people struggle when we are living in a world with so many opportunities to create wealth?
I have personally coached thousands of great people over the past 19 years whose struggles with money issues have caused them to sabotage themselves over and over.
Understanding Your Money Story
One of the first questions I ask when it comes to money is…
…Who was your role model when it comes to money, prosperity, finance, and abundance?
For most of us, it was our parents… and for most of them, it was their parents.
Let me state for the record that this information is not about blaming anyone. You are now a grown-up and your perception of money is now up to you.
The next question to ask yourself is… What did I learn in my education about money?
A typical high school curriculum includes courses about economics and government but nothing about how to attract money or how to have a healthy relationship with money.
Traditional education teaches how to acquire job skills and prepares students to get paid what a particular job is worth…
…not what the individual is worth.
Making more money requires becoming educated about free enterprise and how to get paid what the free market bears…
…getting paid on your terms and your time frame and learning about service and value.
The more valuable you become through the service you provide, the more you make. This is not about working hard, because if that were the case, then all of the world laborers would be millionaires.
Over the centuries, money has gotten a bad rap by being associated with corruption, greed, pain, and the misuse of power.
A perception grew that somehow the rich deprived the poor. And that wealthy people were bad people, were not lovable, were disconnected from love, and were greedy. The sad fact is that most people just don’t believe they deserve to have money freedom or peace of mind.
I believe that you can be rich, spiritual, and prosperous, and that with your abundance…
…you can create love and compassion, using your wealth to assist others to strengthen their skills so that they too have the opportunity to be prosperous in life’s ways.
REMEMBER… money itself is neutral, not good or bad.
It is paper and metal that symbolizes an exchange of goods and services. Money is an energy that you either attract or repel. It is negative emotions around money such as greed, obsession, and power that can bring negative experiences and that keep most of us from it.
Beliefs About Money Are Changing
Now… there has been a radical change in opportunity, philosophy, and ways to create wealth in recent years. Many courageous forerunners paved the way for new thoughts and ideas about prosperity, abundance, self-sufficiency, and enlightenment.
Just in the last hundred years, brilliant writers and speakers have emerged like Napoleon Hill, Dale Carnegie, Earnest Holmes, Katherine Ponder, Florence Scovel Schinn, Earl Nightingale, Louise Hay, Jim Rohn and Tony Robbins, to name a few of my favorites that have assisted me with my enlightenment.
A whole consciousness of self-help and personal development has become available to the masses. Bookstores and coffee bars are now as popular as some of the old traditional nightspots, and we now have access to coaches and mentors to be emotionally, financially, and spiritually fit.
It’s time for you to realize that you are responsible for your own empowerment. You have to assume the responsibility to bring prosperity to you by becoming more and doing more. This means you require belief in yourself and to grasp the idea that you can control your life.
In our me-too, microwave, lottery-mentality society, very few people ever put the proper thoughts and proper actions together at the same time to provoke the results they deserve.
Plain and simple… most people don’t believe they deserve prosperity and abundance.
They want, they wish, they’d like to, if only, they pray for a miracle, and most of all they wait for change to happen.
Sorry, it doesn’t operate that way!
Too many people tiptoe quietly to their graves, looking back only to say…
“I wish I would have!”
Still… don’t lose heart.
For it can officially become “Now O’clock” at any minute. There are 86,400 seconds, 1,440 minutes, and 24 hours in every single day; one day, one week, one month, one year, one lifetime.
You can change at any moment.
Is it hard, or is it easy?
You are one thought away from success or one thought away from failure. It is a choice you have the opportunity to make every single day.
The Rules of Money
The rules of money are simple. If you desire more money in free enterprise… create more value in yourself and your services.
The more value you bring through the service you give, the more you make.
In free enterprise, you have the opportunity to make what the free market bears. When you work a job, you get paid what the job is worth, and since the average jobs in America pay somewhere between $20,000 and $50,000, very few people ever get rich with that recipe.
With the rapidly changing market… you are required to think differently about how you will design your life rather than just make a living. Trading time for dollars is wages. Profits are where you can get paid what you are worth.
You are an artistic, creative being with brilliance inside waiting to get out and shine light on the dark. The world is waiting for someone like you to make a difference!
