So in yesterday’s post, I suggested you were probably still mired in victim-hood. Today I’m going to suggest that you don’t like rich people and have fears about money.
“Are you crazy?” you say? “Don’t you know I want to be rich? I have nothing against money. I want all I can get!”
Well let’s see if that is true:
Let’s say you’re driving along the road and you see a Rolls Royce with a flat tire. Would you find that mildly (or greatly) amusing? If you wouldn’t have the same reaction to seeing a rusted out Honda in the same situation, you’re harboring some serious lack programming.
Do you ever see wealthy people in trouble (Martha Stewart, Michael Jackson, Mike Tyson, etc) and say or think something like, “Well he/she may have all that money, but he/she still isn’t happy.” This shows an underlying jealously and resentment of wealthy people.
Secretly do you feel some satisfaction to read that celebrity marriages end up broken? Same as above.
Do you think rich, powerful and successful people are not as good of parents as you are? Do you believe Rabbis, priests, and ministers should live frugally? Do you think directors of charities and other non-profits should work for free or low wages? Do you feel unions protect the little guy from being victimized by big greedy corporations?
Answering in the affirmative to any of the above indicates that you probably have some subconscious beliefs about money being evil, or that it is somehow noble to be poor. And unless you eviscerate them, they will continue to hold you back. Give that some thought. And check in below with your comments.
I’m in Frankfurt now, heading to Heidelberg tonight, where I hope to see some of you.
