This is an excerpt from “A Simple Twist to Upgrade Your Money Potential” from my book UNEXPECTED TREASURES, which I believe will help you improve and increase your potential to make more money. Money may not buy you love, but that does not diminish the importance of its necessity.
“It is extremely difficult to remain motivated to work for a paycheck you have already spent, especially when the money is going towards something you do not even need. Money may not bring you happiness, but it certainly enables you to look for it in plenty of places. Moreover, the feeling we get from the things money provides bears a close resemblance to happiness. Do not misunderstand me! I do not love money; I simply like it a lot. People who claim not to like money will often lie about many other things, as well. I merely like the time-saving convenience and numerous opportunities that money affords me.
You may be wondering why the subject of money is so important to me. The truth is…I realize that I have an important mandate on my life to help as many people as I can succeed financially before I depart this Earth. Part of my purpose in life is to impart my wisdom on financial increase into the lives of those who will receive it. I am truly more interested in your success than your adoration.
Managing and keeping money requires more skill than earning it. It behooves each and every one of us to become a good money manager because you have the highest vested interest in how well your money performs in the marketplace. The wealthy have many concerns, but theirs look very different than those of the poor and middle-class. With the poor, obtaining money is a hounding thought; with the middle-class, getting it to stretch is a consuming notion; but with the wealthy, getting it to travel farther is an exciting occupation of energy and thought. Wealthy individuals play the money game to win while others simply play not to lose.
People with a poor perspective of money matters tend to always be in survival mode when it comes to living life. Their primary goal is to have enough money to pay their bills on time and stash away ample funds to afford a vacation. On the other hand, a healthy approach to money management causes individuals to amass wealth, not just an income. These individuals are committed to wealth accumulation – not debt accumulation. While poor and middle-class people may want to enjoy financial prosperity, it is the wealthy individuals who consistently demonstrate their commitment to producing it. If you are totally committed to creating wealth, chances are you will not. Most Americans know exactly how it feels when their money is funny, but there is nothing funny when your money does not meet your basic needs.”
In order to change your potential to make more money, you have to change what you believe about it. Everyone wants to make more money, even the ones that make billions. The truth of matter is that without adequate money, existing in this life is about all one does!
