This is INSIGHT 6 from a set of rules about how to get rich
Myths about money
Everyone is raised up with some kind of beliefs about money. While some of them might be true, they are mostly wrong. A lot of these myths come from our parents and the ways they raised us.
There is probably an infinite amount of beliefs about money that are wrong. I’ll try to list at least some of them here.
- Money is the root of all evil
- Money is dirty
- I don’t deserve to be rich
- Money is always made by people who are greedy and dishonest
- You should never boast with money
- Always keep to yourself how much money you are worth or how much you are paid
- You can’t have money and a pure soul at the same time
- If you get rich you will lose your friends
- You can’t have money and happiness together
- The more money you have the more you want
- Its better to be poor
- I am not meant to be rich – If I was I would already be rich
- I am not the type of a person to be rich.
Think about this list a little.
Do you have any beliefs about money that are wrong?
Did you find any myths from the list above, that you believe to be true? Or maybe you believe in a myth that wasn’t listed?
In either way you should take some time and think about these “money beliefs”.
Where did they come from? When was the first time you heard this myth? Who told it to you? How is the person who first introduced you to that myth getting along in life? Can you think of any reasons why this myth is wrong? (if you can’t, ask me in the comments – seriously)
Going over your money beliefs is a MUST DO things if you are planning to get successful. If you believe in the wrong thing it is inevitable that you achieve the wrong thing as well. If you believe that you don’t deserve to have money, you will unconsciously undermine everything you are doing and never become rich. That’s life!
Get rid of stupid beliefs
Question all your beliefs and try to understand if they are true or not. Get rid of the beliefs that are stupid and irrational. These beliefs are holding you back and keep you from making money!
Good beliefs about money
There are some beliefs about money that are extremely helpful to have in your journey to become rich. Here are some of them:
- Money is OK
- To want more money is OK
- I will get rich
- I am willing to work hard in order to get rich.
Rich people don’t have the wrong beliefs about money that the poor do. Therefore in order to become rich we have to think as rich people. This can be more difficult than you think!
Things to keep
Here is a short poem that I once found from a postcard
Keep your thoughts positive, because your thoughts become your words.
Keep your words positive, because your words become your actions.
Keep your actions positive, because your actions become your habits.
Keep your habits positive, because your habits become your lifestyle.
Keep your lifestyle positive, because your lifestyle becomes your destiny.
