The Strangest Secret About Earning Money
Most people have this misconception, that if you want to make big money then you have to invest big money. Earning a large sum of money has nothing to do with it.
There are some ways of thinking that prevent us from earning as much money as we would like. And some of the misconceptions are: if you want to succeed you have to be educated or if you want to succeed in life you need an experience.
In an online program, ‘Morning Coffee’ with Sinergy team and Aleksandar Nikolić, a licensed consultant of ‘Life Success’. Alexander has helped several companies recover from almost secure bankruptcy and return to the path of stable development. He is also certified as a professional in the project management and risk in project management fields by PMI (Project Management Institute).
Here is a segment of his presentation in a show that gave us a more detailed insight into understanding the energy of money.
“Most people have this misconception, that if you want to make big money – you have to invest big money. Earning a large sum of money has nothing to do with it. There are some ways of thinking that prevent us from earning as much money as we would like. And some of the misconceptions are: if you want to succeed you have to be educated or if you want to succeed in life you have to have the experience.”
There are many examples where this is not the case. You’ve probably heard of Edison who found the bulb with hot lava. Edison, what most people know, had nothing to do with electrical engineering. He was not an engineer at all. Second, what kind of experience might he have with the finding of a lamp when the bulb did not exist before that?
The Wright brothers who made the first plane to fly really had nothing to do with aerodynamics or anything related to the aircraft; they were bicycle mechanics. Of course, no previous experience with the aircraft could have been, since there were no planes flying.
Edison made the bulb, but his idea was not to make the bulb. His basic idea was to light up the whole world. Bill Gates is considered today as one of the richest people in the world, but the idea of Bill Gates was not to make Microsoft. His basic idea was – one computer in each house.
The money and the amount of money that we make are only side effects or benefits of our commitment. What is it that stops us and prevents us to earn the amount of money you want? This is primarily our attitude about money.
What Is Our Attitude To Money?
Most people have a very wrong attitude and that is what prevents them from earning enough money.
Some people are inclined to say: ‘to me money is not important, money is not everything’. Maybe their personal money is not important, but at the supermarket the money is important, because you could not otherwise get to what you want to buy. If you are a tenant, money is important to your landlord. If you want to have all these blessings in life then money must be important to you.
The second very wrong idea is when people say that with money you can not buy love or happiness.
Money is not meant for it anyway.
The money serves to allow you to live comfortably. The more comfortable you live, the more your mind will be free to think about better ideas. You will have more time to educate, progress, enjoy what you enjoy. This is the purpose of money, the purpose of money is not to buy you neither love nor happiness.
Another group of people has a very misconception that money is everything in life. Because of this, a part of the people who have earned huge sums of money, focusing only on money making, are essentially the least happy people.
They have forgotten exactly that money is a servant, not a master.
Money is not a goal, money is a means to enable you to live the way you want it.
The first group of people who say their money is not important, money can not buy them luck and love, they actually use these examples to show that money is not good, as money is bad.
Money is neither good nor bad, money is just money. And what kind of attitude we have towards it, determines the way we will use it and utilize, and in the end, determines how much money we will make.
Money must circulate. When it is in the drawer, it has no value.
Money only has value when you exchange it for something you want, whether it’s a trip, a new laptop, a gift to someone, a new perfume, a nice dinner, listening to good music, going to a concert or at the cinema, buying some books. Only then money gets the value. Money in the drawer has value as old paper.
What still prevents most people from earning a larger amount of money is that they have not built a state of well-being. What does that mean?
Eg. Imagine yourself sitting in a friend’s company and saying that you will earn 20,000 euros in the next 6 months. How would you feel? Most people would feel very, very uncomfortable. Someone who earns a large sum of money does not feel uncomfortable at all. They do not feel uncomfortable because they earn so much money.
No! It’s the other way around. Here’s why …
They earn a large sum of money because they feel very comfortable and very at ease when you think and talk about money.
You must build an awareness of well-being. You have to realize that there is no such money you can not earn. There are various ways, but there is no amount of money that can not be earned.
And another, very important thing that prevents people from earning more money is the fear they will not be able to earn it.
The universe corresponds to our emotions. We can consciously tell – I’m not afraid, I will earn, etc. But if we feel fear, that’s what we will attract and that’s what will happen to us. Stop being scared and erase that mindset that makes you think you are not able to earn the desired amount.
Whenever such thoughts come to your mind, simply remove them, change them, think of something nice, think of something you enjoy. Flip the script. Fear will disappear.
