The Truth About Money by Monique Caradine

The 4 types of people who will always attract money, no matter what the economy!

What do most of us hear when the topic of money comes up in conversation or in the media?  Usually it’s statements like this:

“Money is tight…”
“I’m broke…”
“I gotta count my pennies…”
“The ‘sluggish’ economy…”
“My money is funny…”
“I can’t afford it…”
“I’m living paycheck to paycheck…”
“Can I get a hook up…”

How many of these sound familiar?  Which ones of these have you used recently?  Be honest!

Listen, I’m guilty of repeating some of these same phrases as well but no more.  It’s time to put a stop to this kind of language once and for all—especially among brilliant entrepreneurs like you.

Don’t get me wrong, I totally understand that unexpected things happen that can cause a temporary lack of funds.  Trust me, I’ve been there.
However, prolonged “broke-a$$-ness” among brilliant entrepreneurs is a direct result of two things: 1.) making sub-conscious choices rooted in fear and 2.) Sub-consciously making the decision to hold on to disempowering beliefs that keep them broke and struggling.

So as of today, I implore you to stop believing the lies and rumors about money. 

Here’s the truth.  Right now, money is flowing abundantly throughout the world but it’s flowing mainly to 4 types of people:

People who understand it.  Most people don’t understand the universal laws of saving, investing, giving and attracting large amounts of money. They only think, “work, earn money, pay bills, buy stuff and be broke again.”  We MUST elevate our knowledge around how money works.  One easy way to do this is by reading books and magazines that focus on money, wealth and the secrets to creating more.  Want to see lasting improvements in your money situation? Consider working with a coach who can help you unravel the old “stories” that may be holding you back.

People who respect it.  Is your money crumpled up in your purse or wallet?  Do you often lose track of it?  Do you ignore the money in your bank account, never really having a full awareness of what you have, what you spent and how you can use the rest?  If you answered yes to any of these questions, you have a lack of respect for money.  Those who respect money—regardless of the amount—work with it frequently and systematically and it starts with simple habits like regularly monitoring your accounts and keeping your cash neatly organized in your wallet.

People who are not afraid of it.  Our fear of money is usually rooted in the false belief that we are not worthy, we will mishandle it, or people won’t like us if we’re rich.  So here again, sub-consciously we do things to keep a consistent flow of money out of our lives.  I’ve also noticed that some people stop short of making and even talking about larger sums of money because they think doing so will disempower people they love or it will make them feel uncomfortable. People who are bold and fearless with money on the other hand are more inclined to attract it with ease and speed.  They ask for more, they come up with fun and creative ways to make more and they are like money magnets.

People who are generous with it.  Why are some people so tight with money?  Because they believe that money is their source.  NEWS FLASH: money is NOT your source.  If you are a believer, God is your source and one thing I know for sure is this: God is not broke.  If God is not broke, you shouldn’t be either.  So don’t be afraid to give.  Your Source wants to give you OverFlow and your generosity plays a role in unleashing it.

What lies, rumors or beliefs about money have you bought into?  Are you ready to let them go?
