We’ve been looking at ways we may stay mired in victim-hood. We’ve used sickness as the example, and I questioned when things like braces, wheelchairs, and medicines help us – and when they might hold us back.
Then in yesterday’s post I asked you to think about parallels in terms of staying broke, missing a promotion, or losing a healthy relationship. Did you give it some real thought?
So let’s start with the first one...
If you’re broke right now – and my definition of broke is that you don’t have at least US$10 million laying around somewhere – how much time do you spend owning being broke?
Do you ever repeat the stupid clichés like the rich getting richer, or having to have money to make money? Do you gossip about how cheap your boss or company is, or how bad the economy is? If so, you are programming yourself with excuses to justify staying broke.
Have you surrounded yourself with people who wear being poor as a badge of honor? Do YOU treat being poor as it is something noble or spiritual? If so, think of the self-sabotage programming that is going to kick in every time you try to become successful.
It’s like in the original Spiderman movie, when Peter’s uncle says, “We may not be rich, but at least we’re honest.” Have you ever really thought what an expression like that REALLY means and the subliminal programming it creates in you?
And here’s the real big one...
Are most of your thoughts about money worrying about paying bills and where you’ll get the money– or dreaming of ways to preserve and increase your existing wealth? Because you attract what you think about most.
In my church we sing a song that states, “Our thoughts are prayers.” So what are you praying for?
