Money is evil
The love of money is the root of evil.
You’re passing through this world.
Your reward is in the afterlife.
If you do not de-link all these assumptions from your head, it will be hard for you to allow yourself to make money. This might seem trivial but its an important part of the success process.
Adages like “Money doesn’t grow on trees”
“Learn hard so you can get a good job”
“I’m not a bank” all these funny quips our parents made have an effect on us.
In our desire to be successful, we forget that all these sayings lurk in our minds hence it doesn’t open us up to all the possibilities. The many ways money can be available to us. Granted that money is not the only point of success but this post specifically is targeted at financial success.
Allowing yourself to be successful is the first step in creating opportunities and redeeming your mind to the myriad of ways money flows around without your realizing it.
Dealing with self sabotage is a continuous process your constantly need to check.
Our warped understanding of life sometimes leads us to say we do not deserve certain thing hence we close our minds off the possibilities of achievement and the fact that we can achieve our goals when we work hard and try at it.
I used to be a part of the group that sulked and said “life is not fair”.
Indeed life is not fair but we all do possess certain advantages in life. Its either we work hard and leverage on those advantages or we don’t move to the second level and our life literally becomes a standstill.
Allowing ourselves to be successful is the first step. Then comes the second step which is the hard work and difficult conversations we need to have with ourselves to understand that success and life in general is a journey and success will not come on a bed of roses.
