For many just starting out on their journey to financial security, money can feel like a never-ending treadmill, where you are always struggling to get ahead. I’ve heard such comments as, “I can never seem to catch a break,” “I always feel broke,” etc. “Getting ahead” won’t just happen one day, though. It’s something you […]
Soon enough on this blog I’ll be getting into all the practical steps of building wealth: creating a budget, saving your emergency fund, investing, and more. But in the beginning, there’s a step that I believe you need to take before all others. This step was almost single-handedly responsible for me finally starting to have […]
Many people have the belief that money is hard to make. They sometimes even believe that “the rich” are actively trying to prevent them from having more money themselves.
I cannot overemphasize how harmful this belief is to your pursuit of greater abundance. This set of beliefs is the single largest obstacle to you opening to greater wealth in your life.
And the thing is, it isn’t even true. Yes certainly, if you look for it, you can probably find some evidence, but that’s just the law of attraction at work: whatever you believe and look for in your world, you will find.
What if I told you that money was rather easy to make more of? What if I told you that the economy was actually built in such a way as to encourage amassing wealth?
You likely wouldn’t believe me. But, I’ll ask you to hang on for the ride and give me a chance to explain myself.
And, be forewarned that some of the things I’ll share in this post won’t be comfortable. It’ll force you to look at your current financial situation and realize that the responsibility lies squarely on your shoulders for how successful, or not, you have been—how wealthy, or not, you are. You can no longer blame “the rich”, businesses, the government, etc.
This isn’t blame, necessarily. Many—probably even most—people are clueless when it comes to these things. They don’t know about the financial principles of building wealth, and they also don’t know how to increase that growth through the law of attraction.
But you do. Or at least, you will. And then, you no longer have an excuse.
Are you okay with that? If so, keep on reading.
It’s a pretty common complaint: “Why does money seem so hard?” It seems hard to earn, and even hard to keep around once it has been earned. 😀
Money has been my primary topic since I started this work. It’s the thing that challenged me the most in my life. When I started as an LOA coach, I was receiving government assistance (SSI), and not much else in the way of money.
Then within about two years of that, I was off of SSI, and making more than I ever had before. I consistently set, and achieve, money goals.
Honestly, to me it is one of the most important topics, because it is so ubiquitous. You really can’t go without it, and there are so many beliefs that we pick up about it, how much of it we can have, etc.
So why does it seem so hard? I believe there are three main reasons that people experience challenge around money. I’m not saying these are the only three reasons, but I can’t think of many people with money problems that don’t fall under at least one of these reasons.
