Demystifying Financial Beliefs
There are plenty of falsehoods concerning wealth that necessitate an honest approach. Looking at these myths surrounding finances with a clear mind, common sense and open eyes sheds away all these misconceptions. They are revealed to be nothing but lies people tell themselves and each other when they are not able to live a life filled with joy and wealth. To be able to focus on the creation of wealth, you have to shed your faith in such negative myths and see the facts.
Some believe that having a lot of money will make you a bad person. What is true is money reveals who you really are. When people acquire money, their true selves emerge. The selfish among us will display it for all to see. Selfless people, on the other hand, will be selfless with their money.
There is also a popular one stating money is not everything. It tries to justify the belief that money doesn’t determine how you will live. It shows a great deal of denial in those who are poor. Access to money influences the quality of your life. Your access to wealth is seen in the details of your life.
The myth which states that money makes you less spiritual is false. When you have money, your spirituality will guide you to strive to touch more lives and carry out God’s work. The wealthy citizens of this world are mostly spiritual people. Having fewer worries on your financial security grants you the opportunity to direct your efforts towards more important things in life. The wealthiest of us believe they do not think necessary own all that money but are in possession of it for a good purpose.
Some people believe the rich worship their money. It turns out that those who do not have much of it are the ones who worship money. They will work tirelessly to earn it while sacrificing their health and family. Those who are wealthy will work for other reasons, mostly driven by passion and personal missions.
It is wrong to assume that when you make more money, other people are left with less of it. The the alternative scenario of your wealth-creating opportunities for others to create theirs is viable. Wealth can only result in more wealth. When the rich invest their wealth; there is a creation of opportunities for people to earn a living.
When people say that money is the root of all evil, they are only proclaiming falsehoods. Lack of money is the root of evil. What this simply means is that poverty has led to evil deeds like theft, murder and lying.
