Where do riches really come from?
Most of us were taught they come from a good education and hard work.
However, that’s not true.
Despite what you may have learned, going to work every day and grinding it out is not how you become wealthy.
In fact, there’s a very real possibility that everything you have learned about how to earn money is far from the truth.
Three reasons you’re in the dark
Our school system.
The purpose of our educational system is to enlighten young minds. But it has woefully neglected one important subject, “How to Earn Money.”
Sure, we learn how to count money. We create balance sheets, graphs and charts. We learn how to account for every penny.
But none of that is showing us how to earn money. As a result, you can have a doctorate degree in economics and still end up being broke.
There has always been a small, select group—approximately 3% of our population—that understands that consciousness is the primary cause of wealth.
Namely, prosperity consciousness.
Here’s where the problem lies.
This small group of people keep it in the family. Like most people, they pass what they know and their prosperity consciousness down through the generations.
And while virtually anyone can be taught how to become wealthy, the sad truth is that 97 out of every 100 people live their entire lives without ever learning how to earn money. To perpetuate this ridiculous problem, they pass their ignorance along from one generation to the next.
Most of us never learn that…
Money is your reward for serving others
Few people really understand this.
Age, knowledge or experience are irrelevant when it comes to earning money.
Money is a reward you receive for the service you render. The more valuable the service, the greater the reward.
Thinking of ways you can be of greater service will not only help you earn more money, it will also enable you to grow intellectually and spiritually.
Money works according to law
Like everything else in life, there are universal laws that govern how money flows into our lives.
The most important law, however, is what some people often refer to as Karmic Law … Sowing and Reaping … Cause and Effect … or Action, Re-Action.
Here’s how this law works.
1. The thoughts, feelings and actions that you express in life are seeds that you sow.
2. The conditions, circumstances and things that come into your life are the harvest you reap because of the seeds that you sow.
When you attempt to ”get” something without giving, you are trying to reap the harvest without sowing the seeds. That is a transgression of the law—whether we’re talking about our finances or any other area of life.
So, if you attempt to get money without giving or providing service, you are violating natural law. And, ultimately, it will not work.
The key is to give not trade
When hearing, “Our rewards in life will always match our service,” most people will nod their heads and say, “Yes, that’s certainly true.”
They will then go on their merry way and never realize, for the most part, how their every thought and action is affected by this great truth.
Another way to look at Karmic Law is through the lens of giving and receiving.
You see, giving means to let go of; completely abandon. Unfortunately, most people have been conditioned to trade (such as trading their time for money) rather than freely give.
Instead of being taught to work hard, we should understand that we are here to give, to serve each other, and money is a reward we receive for that service.
Your consciousness determines your results
Abundance is something we magnetize ourselves to. We draw it into our lives in every aspect our lives.
Business associates, friends, everything we want will come into our life by law, not luck. You are either attracting or repelling good through your consciousness.
If you want to improve your financial position in life, focus your attention on creating a higher level of prosperity consciousness.
Begin by preparing a powerful, positive affirmation. Write it out, read it, and fuel it with emotion every day. When you do this, you are letting it take hold of your mind by depositing this creative energy in the treasury of your subconscious mind.
By repeating this process over and over and over again every day, it will begin to alter your conditioning and mentally move you in the direction you want to go.
How big of a reward do you want?
We always reap what we sow.
Saying you want bigger rewards or more money is not good enough.
Five dollars is more. Is that all you want?
Decide on a specific figure.
Once you determine how much money you want to earn, write it down on a sheet of paper in large figures. Look at the number with the dollar sign beside it and tell yourself over and over again:
THAT AMOUNT OF MONEY IS AN EFFECT. IT REPRESENTS A REWARD THAT I WANT TO RECEIVE. WHAT SERVICES CAN I RENDER THAT WOULD BE DESERVING OF THAT REWARD?
• Think of how you can do whatever you do – more effectively.
• Think of how you can improve the quality and quantity of service you render.
• Think of how you can help people in a greater way.
Most people are a servant to money. Don’t let that happen to you.
Think of money as your servant. The more you earn, the more you can help others.
