“Money will match your mindset. Change your mind and you can attract money now.” – Joe Vitale
The first step towards abundance is to shift how we think. In order to do this, we must conquer our limiting beliefs. It has been said that limiting beliefs are like thieves in the night. It steals our hope and enthusiasm in life. It grabs our opportunity to succeed.
I assume many of us grow in family wherein we never met or known anyone who was wealthy. I was personally nurtured in a not-so-rich family. My father is an OFW and my mother is housewife.
Throughout my formative years, it had been planted in my mind that in order to become rich, I must finish college and earn a degree. I was not exposed in various types of investment; it never occurred to me that it’s just as possible for me to become wealthy as for anyone else.
A stand-put star in the movie THE SECRET, Joe Vitale said that we must first have a wealthy mindset before we achieve it because if we don’t, we will always find ourselves frequently getting close, but never achieving our dream. He advised to think wealth now and we will begin to attract money. Simple.
I am Valuable
The first limiting belief that you need to remove is “I don’t deserve it”. If you don’t love yourself, you will never feel that you deserve something valuable in our life. Opportunities will pass you believing that good things only come to others but they are not meant for you.
To change this belief, you must continuously affirm yourselves that God wants you to prosper. There is a greatness inside of you that nobody can do. Saying a positive affirmation like “I am a child of God. I am meant to be happy and successful” will somehow change your life for the better. Your outer world is a reflection of what’s inside of you.
Money is a Wonderful Servant
Movies and TV programs inculcate in our mind that money is the root of all evil. This belief makes our subconscious mind repel money away from us because we don’t want to be associated with evil. In truth, the Bible says in 1 Timothy 6:10, “For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil. Some people, eager for money, have wandered from the faith and pierced themselves with many griefs.”
In my personal observation, poor countries have a lot of crime than rich countries. Desperate mindset and the greed (love) for money is the true cause of evil. Money is neutral. It is neither good or bad. It can either be your master or your servant.
Money had nothing to do with the diploma and awards that you received. It will always depend on our mindset. When you realize that money is a neutral force for good and you deserve it, you will attract abundance in your life.
