This is a fascinating realization and I might be guilty a bit but most people don’t care about money yet it is so important. You also think you do care about money but the fact is you don’t care, if you love money you would not do things to impress other people with it but you will keep it and impress yourself following social proof is natural but to embrace the important of money you should fight against that’s urge of keeping up with the Jones.
They think money is for spending
Maybe you one of those people who thinks money is for paying bills and buying same food every month well let me burst your bubble money has many functions and bribing is one of them but I don’t mean negative stuff like that’s. Money has a function of making you well off meaning you can become to the point where money is not the reason you wake up in the morning to work for but wake up to spend it wisely and have fun with your life.
Secondly money can make you generous and give to those who has been really been dealt a bad hand not those who have anything functioning in their body yet can’t apply it well. Thirdly money can solve money problems even those that’s doesn’t seems like money problems and on the other hand money can be the problem for you if you are obsessed with it yet can’t handle it.
They have wrong beliefs about money
To be honest I know most of this beliefs but I never consider them or associate them with money I thought it’s something people say’s for no reason. But things you just say have a meaning and if somehow your mind process it you can end up having a negative view of that’s thing.
For example people say money is a root of all evil, which is not true you see how you act with other people money and cutting corners with it says more about you than the money itself. Money is a simple paper which exemplify trade between two people wanting to exchange something ,when your mind tell you to go steal money or keep change and cook books you don’t necessarily want money but you want what’s money can do buy a car a dress and so on.
Penny save is penny earned having that’s back of your mind limit your thinking to only make penny returns on your investment if you think you care about money you shouldn’t think like most people. Dismiss this kind of beliefs and create your own and think big numbers cause it true you attract what’s you think about .Rich people are greedy or selfish is a terrible mindset because its pushes you away from the only people who cares about money who can also teach you about money but if you resent them well you will get the same feedback.
You need to work hard to make money
If you believe this you may care more about your work than money since every month you don’t save as much as you suppose to. Your work ethic is good but that’s shouldn’t be your long term strategy about money cause if so you will never have more than enough and when by luck you do you won’t have time to enjoy it because the source require your attension.
The concept of multiple streams of income comes from this and that is why you don’t need multiple jobs but multiple assets that are pay you every month or every week or every day even every hour without you working physically or mentally for that’s matter except counting your money and tighten the books.
See if you truly love money like I do you don’t entirely leave things to people especially those concerning money you need some level of paranoid until the person you hired has repeatedly proved him/herself then you can trust those people with your family and your life in to a huge extent that’s a family lawyer or your head of security depending on your type of lifestyle Key pay this people well and don’t assume he’s an accountant he will steal some don’t create that’s room.
You think poor people are lazy or can’t think
I’m also quick to judge but in my experience wealthy people realize that’s not all people who are broke made themselves that’s way. They know about circumstances beyond their management and they know that’s we are not equal and slowly but surely I sympathize like this now as well.
In order for you to see how people are suffering because of a lack of tools and resources and even food make yourself a habit of leaving a tip when you buy or eat somewhere and see people who works in places where they earn minimum wage get excited.
All his/her salary covers number of people back at home and for you to say the person is working why should I give him a tip ,says more about you then the person trying to feed his family with minimum wage. Of cause other’s can be lazy and lack effort but those people are the most creative people and put them in the right place they will fasten the job because they want to chill but yet they need and value money.
This goes back to the topic of the day physical lazy people may suspect that’s why should I work hard for money that’s where smart work comes in. Every path towards money has a bit of it challenges you must endure if you really care.
They don’t have assets but have degrees
If you have a lucrative job that’s pays well doesn’t mean you care about money. If you live on that work and buy fancy cars and you have a big house and family you are not focusing on money but focusing on those things.
If your savings and investment is more than your take home you still an average person with a huge paycheck and I’m not trying to diminish your success you are a successful midlle class and that’s a good life but your kids have nothing after you gone and money cannot change a person who is not sophisticated about money.
Teach your children about money if you care about it and learn this financial education yourself, asset’s are things that’s pay you money every month not the ones that’s deduct your account every month those are liability and the bank won’t help you become rich but they can safety keep your money and take their fees for that’s.
So if you think you are rich because you have a lot of money in the bank thinks again you are rich in a sense but that’s just liquidity to help you have a buying power but your net worth shouldn’t be fixed in one place. Why because if that’s one place suffer some unforeseen consequences? Yea you will be out of the game and money tends to get bored and flow to people who can use it so save and invest some.
Thank you money lovers we are together in this ,money has nothing to do with your happiness but it can elevate it so don’t sleep on that it important. Keep bettering yourself and you won’t regret it for disclaimer I learnt this lessons for successful people who don’t consider themselves financials expects so am I take my advice’s with a grain of salt.
But I meant no harm here and nothing I’m selling but let’s follow each other and build powerful relationship LNM (uLwaz No Makhula) on social media.
