Money Saboteur #1 - Addiction
I disagree that addiction is an ‘illness.’ It may lead to an illness, but having personally experienced with addiction in my family and friends, I can tell you it’s a person’s choice to simply not deal with life.
The usual scene this is that an addict doesn’t believe in themselves or their worth, so they feel helpless to improve their conditions. This leads to a desire for escape, in some cases total annihilation, and shutting everyone out from "their safe place".
If you are addicted, your Life Purpose is out of reach.
Money Saboteur #2 - Blame
“Oh, it’s easy for you – you went to Harvard.”
“It’s easy for you because you are smarter, richer, faster, luckier.”
“She's prettier, slimmer, taller... that's why men like her”
The minute you hear these sad stories combined with the mention of ‘luck,’ you know you're listening to a victim seeking someone to blame for their struggles. Why?
If you have low self-esteem, you don’t feel you can overcome your struggles. And there must be some reason, right? The world is against you and it’s not your fault. How tiring for the victim in the blame cycle.
I suggest you drop ALL blame and criticism forever and watch your life turn around. I have never, ever met a wealthy ‘victim’ who actually made their money through their own efforts. Sure, I’ve met wealthy victims who inherited money, but blaming others for your sad state will ensure you stay a victim forever.
And blame insults the person who is successful, whether they’ve had lots of support or struggled mightily for it. We never ever know another person’s path. We can only take responsibility for our own.
Money Saboteur #3 - Inherited Rejection
Then replace it with: “I see many fat people are greedy and the spoon is a great temptation.”
“Everyone I helped out ended up hurting me.”
“I believe if one is 1% disloyal + 99% loyal, then he/she is 100% disloyal.”
STOP IT! No one is perfect. God considers a rich liar His friend, his name was Abraham. Jesus did not expect Peter's 100% loyalty when Peter disowned Him, and later assigned Peter to be His representative. Start accepting people for who they are and celebrate people's business success or marriage success. Start accepting yourself for your faults and your gifts. You are worthy of wealth, happiness and success.
