When we are able to see money with a different eye, something different will start to show up.
Have you ever wished that you had no money problems ever again?
Well, what if it’s truly possible to eliminate money problems?
All you need is to understand what created the money problems in the first place.
What Creates Money Problems?
When l looked into the perplexity of why people create money problems, I discovered that it’s because for most of us, money is a mystery.
Most of what we know about money is based on false assumptions. These false assumptions about money cause financial and emotional grief in our life.
I have been examining the basis of this perplexity and found that a scarcity frame of mind is the main perpetrator that causes most people to experience money problems.
This is not at all surprising since we are bombarded with a lot of misinformation about money that is simply not true.
People who have a scarcity frame of mind have attitudes, mindsets, feelings, and values associated with lack or the fear of lack.
If you have scarcity mindset, you believe there is not enough to go around for everyone in the world. Scarcity becomes a way of life for you, and you will often experience a feeling of lack as part of your reality. As a result, that is what you see all around you.
Your points of view always determine your conditions and circumstances. It has a profound influence on how you see the world and on the way you live your life.
The myths and false impressions about money that are based in scarcity and limitation are everywhere. We buy into them, and then at some point, we give up our awareness in order to buy the rightness of this common viewpoint.
Many people today are struggling financially because they do not understand the most elementary basics of money and how money works. Money problems are usually a symptom of a bigger issue.
Most people remain poor simply because they have judgments and conclusions that there is not enough money in the world. They only see scarcity and lack.
Have you heard of professional athletes and rock stars who were super rich and then become deeply in debt or homeless a few years later?
There has been much discussion based on the precepts of the scarcity mindset, that if all the wealth on the planet were divided up and redistributed equally among everyone on Earth tomorrow, and no one changed their scarcity mindset about money, all the money and resources would be back in the hands of the original owners within a few years. The originally wealthy people would be wealthy again, and the poor people would be poor again. Money alone does not make you prosperous and wealthy.
Are you aware that your insight and knowledge of how money works determines whether you will struggle in frustration or live an extraordinary life of abundance and wealth?
Most people have money problems because they lack an understanding of how to manage their finances. We weren’t taught anything about money except to work hard and save.
I have discovered, over decades of working in this area, that more than anything else, people are held back from being wealthy by their viewpoints about money, prosperity, and abundance.
It is not because they were born into a poor family or because they didn’t get a college education or because they were disadvantaged to begin with. The lack of prosperity in many people’s lives is due to the way they view money and resources.
It obviously matters greatly whether or not you are able to create and generate your money with ease. Those who fall prey to the scarcity mindset will inevitably end up with a far lower standard of living than was otherwise truly possible. When you say things such as ‘I can’t afford it….. I can’t do that …. I’m broke….. That’s not possible …. I don’t know where to get the money’, you are usually living under the influence of the scarcity mindset.
The problem of money has to do with the way you see the world as a world of not enough money. If you have a point of view that there is not enough money, then that is what your reality will be.
If you are like most people, you probably believe that the only way to make money is to go to school, get good grades, get a safe secure and well paid job, work hard and save money. You probably never choose to invest because you believe that investing is risky. The very idea of having a lot of money is somewhat unfeasible, it’s something others have but for you it’s just an unrealistic dream.
Your points of view and beliefs have the power to make you wealthy or make you poor.
Do you see that if you look at money from a point of view that isn’t true, you would not be able to create and generate money with ease and comfort?
If you function from a scarcity mindset, you will be in a constant state of destruction of your financial reality. This is how you end up impairing your ability to become wealthy and never getting what you desire. Crazy, isn’t it?
So, if you would like to become wealthy, you have to choose different ways of thinking about money. You have to become aware of the scarcity mindset that creates limitations and barriers to what is possible for you.
Ask yourself these questions:
When you are able to see money with a different eye, something different will start to show up. As you start to break down the mystery of money, you begin to see money for what it is and what is truly possible for you in regards to money.
However, as long as you are buying the scarcity mindset as real, you cannot truly see what else is possible. You only see what you have decided should be, what has to be or what ought to be.
You don’t have to live with the scarcity mindset. There is a different choice. Ask yourself “What’s it going to take to change this?” This question opens the door to seeing different possibilities. When you do this, things get better and opportunities will start to show up. The money will come to you from unexpected places.
