The Journey to £1Million 005: The Laws Of Money
The poor keep getting poorer and the rich get richer!
Have you ever noticed this? This has been a question that has annoyed me and I’m sure many others for years on end. If there was any justice in the world, or if there was a God, we think, then surely this should not be the case.
Karma should surely look at those of us who have suffered at the hands of poverty and ensure that we get money. After all there is virtue in being poor, right? If you listen to politicians that specialise in stoking the resentment in poor people, that is what they say all the time. The poor deserve the money that rich folks have. I remember an article recently on Forbes saying the wealth of the richest 8 individuals is more than that of the bottom 50% of the world population put togetherness.
I have learnt that things don’t work in the manner that we want. Money does not flow according to the feelings and even cries of those afflicted by poverty. It is a sad fact and me saying it may seem harsh at first. However, I ask that you give me a chance to present a few truths that may not taste nice but are geared to solve the problems of poverty in our communities.
There are principles and laws that those who have accumulated a lot of wealth have learnt and practise that would be good if we adopted them instead of continuing the way we always have. The mass of people are poor because we are wasters and spenders of money, while those who are billionaires and multi-millionaires understand the laws of money.
In a nutshell, here are the laws of money:
Money must be retained.
Money is not to be spent, but to be saved (for investment).
Never spend money on what you can do without.
Never eat tomorrow’s bread today.
Never obey the dictates of money.
The truth of the matter is that we as a people are not poor because the system is against us, but because of what we do not know! Not understanding these simple laws of money keeps us enslaved in a consumeristic level of thinking that does not lend itself to accumulating wealth.
The whole point of money is that you be able to use it as a tool, not that it becomes the whole reason you live. I came to this realisation last year. I found that I was waking up to go make money and if I didn’t change anything then I was going to continue to live like this for the rest of my life.
But I wanted to live for my calling and purpose in life, not for money. Hence I decided to conquer money by going on this journey to become a millionaire.
Here’s the dirty truth. Even if you distributed the wealth of the richest billionaires in the world to the poor masses, in 10 years the money would more or less be right back in the hands of the billionaires. Those who know and practise the laws of money would just put themselves downwind of the spenders and get their money back.
Why do you think so many lottery winners have nothing in a relatively short time after winning big jackpots? Poverty of the mind is the biggest enemy that you need to fight.
Separate your feelings and sentiments about money from the facts and you will find this easier to swallow. I know everything in you is trying to resist what I am saying but that is simply a sign that you have been taught things that will cause you to always be at the wrong end of the flow of money. Are you not tired of living this way??
- Jot down the 5 Laws Of Money that I listed above and learn them. Try to memorise them.
- 2. Choose just ONE that you want to concentrate on for a set time period like a month. They may look simple but actually The Laws Of Money go against everything you have deep inside you, so one is enough to start with.
