Common roadblocks to wealth
NEEDING the cash
Ever notice that the more you NEED money the easier it slips through your hands – or downright avoids you? And when you don’t need the money that’s when you receive it? Of course you’ll always hear those stories about people who were on their last dollar and bought that winning lottery ticket however I bet if you sat down and actually talked with those people you’d find that they weren’t saying a prayer to the almighty and begging for the money. I bet they’d reached a state of surrender and simply thought – ‘what ever will be will be’ and whammo the money came.
What’s the point? When we need money, our life is focused on it and our energy is one of need rather than appreciation or even desire the energy is negative and we may actually be repelling money. Sounds kind of hocus pocus I know but if you are familiar with The Secret or Think and Grow Rich, they talk about the law of attraction. The emotions which are tied to your desires have a strong effect on what you attract. NEED simply seems to attract more need – certainly not what you bargained for.
So how do you go around this roadblock?
There are several small steps you can take. The first is to be grateful for what you have. Gratitude is a very powerful emotion. Simply making a written or mental checklist at the beginning or end of every day about what you’re grateful for will start to turn things around.
The second is to let go of need. Money is a great thing, it’s a tool, and it can be used to have tremendous fun and do fantastic great works for others. It’s good to desire money and it’s good to focus on it, as long as your focus is positive.
Napoleon Hill talks at length about the necessity of faith. Not just faith in yourself for the ability to create great wealth but faith in the bigger picture. Faith that if you do what’s required of you, the universe or God or however you choose to define it will take care of you. He says, “Faith is the head chemist of the mind. When faith is blended with the vibration of thought, the subconscious mind instantly picks up the vibration, translates it into its spiritual equivalent, the only form that induces a response from the Infinite Intelligence, as in the case of prayer.”
Perception of money
How do you view money? You’ll find it’s easier to attain if you have only positive associations with it. However many of us have deep seated associations with money that may not be so positive. We may not even be aware of them. For example, did you ever hear your parents say, “We just don’t have enough?”
Did you ever hear someone say, “The rich get richer and the poor get poorer?” Did you ever make a mistake with money, maybe a poor investment or incur a bit of debt and feel you’re just not good with money? Do you feel that money is scarce and there’s only a limited supply?
These small incidents can create deep seated beliefs about money that affect our ability to create great wealth. In order to achieve great wealth you have to believe you’re able to do it deep down to your core. You must also believe you deserve it.
To eliminate this roadblock to wealth consider asking yourself what your beliefs about money are. Write them down and explore them one by one. Ask yourself if you believe the thoughts that come up and if so, why? You may find that you’re able to clear these false beliefs about money and get on the road to the wealth you desire and deserve.
Not Following Your Passion
“A burning desire to be and to do is the starting point from which the dreamer must take off.”
When you’re having fun and truly enjoying what you do, money will follow. Now that doesn’t mean it’s guaranteed. You still need to eliminate the previous road blocks mentioned above and you need to surround yourself with the skills and knowledge necessary to run a profitable business but at its core passion must exist.
Passion and a desire to be doing what you’re doing day in and day out is essential. If you dread getting up in the morning it’s only sending out negative energy to your subconscious and ultimately to the divine, it’s also sending out negative energy to everyone around you. Your customers, partners, employees and even your vendors will pick up on your dissatisfaction. Whether they’re aware of it or not, it will affect how they interact with you and ultimately it will affect your prosperity.
Consider for a moment how you feel when you’re at the store for example and the sales person is apathetic at best and you can tell by the look on their face that they’d rather be walking on coals than helping you buy a television. You don’t feel like buying a television from them that’s for certain. However if you’re talking to someone whose passion is television and technology you’re going to enjoy that interaction much more and you’re more likely to buy that TV. You’re also more likely to go back to them when you have future needs.
The same holds true for you and your business. You MUST be passionate about it. Passion is contagious. It’ll permeate your relationships and kick those roadblocks to wealth right out of the way.
Running into one or more of these wealth creation roadblocks isn’t the end of the world. We all, even the wealthiest of us, stumble and doubt from time to time. I’m sure there are days when Warren Buffet feels less than passionate about his job. The difference is that the wealthy make changes in their lives to once again feel passionate about their work. They make the changes and do what they need to do to feel positive about money and they enjoy the rewards of having money rather than feeling guilty or needy. There is great wealth available for you; all you have to do is continue to clear those roadblocks. Be aware of them and then kick them out of the way – great wealth is yours for the asking.
