We are designed to be well off and to live abundantly
Money is simply energy that allows you freedom. Welcome to the last part of the Eliminating Poverty Consciousness series here on Self Avenue. If you have not done so already, you need to read Part 1 and Part 2, as the points raised around moving into a prosperity consciousness are covered in sequence.
Remember, it takes a bit of time to loosen up those tight strings around money. Limiting beliefs around money fed into our subconscious minds do not disappear overnight, nor did they quickly appear just like that in the first place either. Constant repetition, affirmation and belief is necessary. The last of the following, and most common limiting beliefs around money will now be covered and demystified for your benefit.
Limiting Belief # 9: How did they get so much money...
"They must de dealing drugs or something, or they must have robbed a bank."
The great news is that there are thousands of spiritual, ethical and legal ways to make an abundance of money and create some decent wealth.
Let me share with you some, just by a simple brainstorming exercise. Note - some of these ideas will require some ample planning and/or further education on strategy implementation. Yours truly is practising what she preaches. She has, and continues to implement all of the below wealth creation strategies with success:
Create a hot, in demand product and/or service.
Solve other people's problems in business - whether that is creating a professional service that is fun or otherwise, and/or even starting up a blog.
Add value to your own and/or employers business - depending on whether you're an employee or business owner.
Invest in real estate. Rent and/or be an owner occupier. Multiple properties creates a domino effect. Renovating houses is a real estate value multiplier.
Buy shares at the right time, and then learn how to rent them out for some great cash flow.
Even before doing the above, and you have at least $10K in one of your accounts - sell insurance on the shares you wish to buy first. That's it, sell an asset you don't even own. If you get exercised, you'll need to cough up and buy the shares. If you do not get exercised at the end of the month, then just repeat this process all over again.
Sell unwanted items on eBay
Write a book and sell copies
Get a second job if you need to. If so, ensure it is a sales role (ideally) that offers a base plus commission.
The above is just to get you started. There are many other ways to make some great cash too.
Limiting Belief # 10: The rich get richer, and the poor get poorer.
If you adopt a similar belief (whether consciously and/or unconsciously) - you must do yourself a favour and drop it immediately. The above adage is true if you believe this to be the case. There is $21 trillion circulating in this planet. Where's your share? How can you obtain your share by adding immense value and being of service to the world?
Limiting Belief # 11: Money is the root of all evil
The prosperity textbook even states that "poverty is a sin." I personally believe that the love of money just for money's sake is the root of all evil, and not money itself. However, having a lack of money is the root of all evil. Why? It restricts your freedom and abundant choices in life. Life is short, and is meant to be enjoyed.
Money is designed as a tool to circulate, to spread the love, and to help other people less fortunate than ourselves. On the other hand, with money you can help everyone at all levels, and not just the less fortunate. Life is short. You might have heard the saying that "we are here for a good time, not for a long time" is so true.
I trust that you have enjoyed reading the articles in this series, and stay tuned for some more great money and non-money related self empowerment articles here on Self Avenue.
Case in point. You are meant to be wealthy:
"But thou shalt remember Jehovah thy God, for it is he that giveth thee power to get wealth."(Deuteronomy 8:18)
